    lol, all worth it when it finally works in the end though

    Saying that, I don't mind sorting out other peoples machines endlessly, but when it's mine, I don't have the patience, I just want it to work and get frustrated very quickly when it acts up

    CSGO and W10 and 353.62 does not like GSYNC at all.

    I get major stuttering every 5 seconds and when turning around corners.

    Disabled GSYNC and boom zero stutters.

    Only happened in CSGO so far, I tested GRID AutoSport and it was silky smooth even with GSYNC on.

    Are you definitely signed in with a Microsoft account?

    Is the option to switch to PIN there in the accounts page > sign in options?

    Hahaha yeah! Thanks Microsoft! :nerd:

    Anyways, installation went fine, my system is all set and ready again, just some few tweaks and installations and I'm done with it for tonight.

    Also, for the activation, yup, you just have to spam-click the 'Activate' button and if u're a bit lucky it will dissapear and you will see 'Windows is activated!'

    :D

    Goodluck all and thanks again for your help Extraordinary and the others, damn I wish I could give you a beer too. :X

    I'm glad it's all coming to pieces, well this was another expierence for me, also took me all day to figure things out but ah well.

    If you have awesome members like the people in this thread I have no right to complain right! :)

    See you all! Goodluck. :)

    EDIT: Oh yeah, one more question, what happens if you're windows is not activated? Do you get less updates? Because when it's not activated you can still work on the system, right?

    Defender keeps re enabling even after nodefender program and the annoying notification keeps coming up in the bottom that security service is disabled :d

    :) - I think just things like customisation are disabled, shouldn't affect normal use of the machine, not sure if there is any nag screen or anything else, I read something from MS saying it wouldn't affect testing

    You can disable defender in GPEDIT.MSC from RUN, no need for 3rd party programs, might be one of the issues you're having

    Getting a bit late for me to look through logs, been at this for over 14 hours today lol

    If you're still having problems, post the log here and see if anyone else can look through it

    Yea, sounds like something went very wrong then, difficult to know what without seeing the machine - not sure what else to suggest atm, my brain has shutdown for the night I think

    USB > Clean install will almost certainly solve it

    If you have access to the machine at all, you could mount the 10 ISO and install from there again over the top, see if that fixes it, tell it to keep nothing - or run setup from the sources folder which will clean install

    If you can't mount it, make a 6GB partition on the drive, and extract the ISO to that, and run setup from there

    It seems by looking at the log that powershell and microsoft edge are corrupt lol.

    SFC can fix them, but only if the component store is not corrupt

    If SFC fails to fix everything, you'll need to run a DISM restorehealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    If that fails, you'll need to Google on how to run an offline DISM with the install.wim from the 10 ISO

    RUN: gpedit.msc

    computer configuration > admin templates > windows components > windows defender > turn off windows defender > enable that setting

    I will have to do offline dvd dism too, I had this corrupt image since win10 upgrade notification and couldnt fix it since.. Thought now it would once Win10 goes retail, but same story hah



    Speaking of Win10, well to be honest I liked win8.1 a lot more, this is too white and sometimes this new metro mix looks strange, even more then in win8.1.
    Also it messed up my windows fullscreen start, now its all in one line...:infinity::pc1:
