Windows 10 Not Starting Correctly


When starting my Windows 10 computer, I get the error "Windows did not start correctly" and it wants me to restart.

Any clue on how to solve this?

Screen shot attached - not sure if this is the problem but is an error around that time.

Have you tried rebooting in safe mode?
has there been any recent updates. I had a similar issue last week, an update got installed which woulnd't let it boot.
go to repair options and restore before the update and this should fix it

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Look at
If you experience a boot failure, you can use the /RevertPendingActions option to try to recover the system. The operation reverts all pending actions from the previous servicing operations because these actions might be the cause of the boot failure. The /RevertPendingActions option is not supported on a running operating system or a Windows PE or Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) image.
You should use the /RevertPendingActions option only in a system-recovery scenario on a Windows image that did not boot.

Can you start with a bootable CD (Ultimate Boot CD) and then run the Media Creation link to reinstall Windows 10?
Computer GuyAuthor Commented:
will the reinstall overwrite my data?
Yes it will. Please try my suggestion.
Computer GuyAuthor Commented:
is there anything in the screen shot I sent that goes a clue?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
The Media Link install I pointed to gives you the option to Keep Applications and Data OR to Keep Nothing. Use the first choice.
The media link can be used to install 10, right, but it cannot be used to repair a non-bootable 10.
Computer Guy, you did not attach a screenshot.

this machine does boot. I get prompted to restart then it goes into windows.
It does... ok. So can you open setup or won't windows let you? Setup is inside the ISO you would download, simply double click the ISO.
