  • Hi,

     

    Before going any further, I would like to verify these situations:

    1 Can you see other hidden files?

    2 Did you set any restrictions of your user?

     

    Please remove Windows SteadyState for test:

      1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple Operating Systems, you can press the F8 key when you see the boot menu.

     2. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select Safe Mode, and then press Enter.

     3. Log onto Windows by using the Administrator account or any user account with the Administrator privileges.

     4. Delete the Cache.wdp file under drive C.

     

    If the cache file cannot be found, let’s show hidden files with the following steps.

    -----------------------

    1. Open drive C: Click Organize menu-> Folders and search option.

    2. Click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, click "Show hidden files and folders."

    3. To display other hidden files, clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box.

    4. Click the "Hide extensions for known file types".

    5. Click OK.

     

    After that, delete related registry keys and files

    -----------------------

    1. Click Start and then Run.

    2. Type in regedit and then click OK.

    3.  Navigate and delete the following two branches(you can back up these registries before delete ):

     

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Computer Toolkit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Windows SteadyState

     

    4. Search and delete all Windows SteadyState related entries.

    5. Delete files under C:\Program Files\Windows SteadyState

  • Since this issue still occurs when you use administrator account. We should ensure the issue whether related with Windows SteadyState.

    Furthermore, you can set the restriction level to "No restrictions" for test.

  • There is no option to recover user profile from Windows SteadyState. You can create another user to see whether the same issue occurs.

    In addition, you can try to perform a system restore.
