    Solved Can't boot into Safe Mode?

    Can't activate Write Cache for SSD

    Solved Can't change account pic or lock screen wallpaper?

    I tried sfc /scannow. It just spat out a insanely long CBS file. However, I tried changing my lock screen wallpaper in safe mode, and it worked! What does this mean? That something in the windows services is causing this?

    Solved Can't change account pic or lock screen wallpaper?

    When I go to the charms bar> Settings> Change PC settings, I can't change the lock screen wallpaper. If I click on browse, this happens below, and it freezes. I've tried the same thing for changing the profile pic, and again it freezes. Please help?

    Corrupt Boot Problem

    OK, I know this sounds weird, but the Windows boot time is getting faster after every boot. Like, literally. The loading icon is taking less spins before Windows boots.
