  • Try a system file check, from an admin command prompt (search start for command right click Command Prompt and Run as administrator)

    sfc /SCANNOW

    That will take 30mins to run. If it reports errors run it again. Once complete reboot see if that helps.

    If that does not help, as a test create a new local user and login as that and test.

    PS>net helpmsg (0x42C)
    The dependency service or group failed to start.

    I wonder what that implies.  ProcMon might give us a clue.  Otherwise I suppose there could be something in the Events logs which would give more details about what it would mean.

    The other error code is equally obscure, so again I would try using ProcMon to try to figure out what it could imply.

    PS>net helpmsg 3
    The system cannot find the path specified.

  • Are you able to open file explorer?

    If you can open file explorer then find a flash drive that you can format ( > or = 8 GB)

    Create a bootable Windows 10 iso:

    Perform an in place upgrade repair using the Windows 10 iso:

    1) Open file explorer

    2) Insert the Windows 10 iso into any USB port

    3) Click on the Windows 10 iso within file explorer and launch setup or setup.exe

    4) Follow the text and images in this link:
