Windows Boots In Recovery State?
Hello Guys. I have a problem concerning the boot up of my PC. so basically a few days ago we had a power outage and i was using my pc at that time. but little did I know it affected it and did something to it. Every time i restart or open up my pc it restarts in its known last state? not really sure about it. And every time i change or install somethings i automatically deletes those changes and reverts back to that said state. I am having problem with this and is messing up my work. If there is someone out there that can help it would be very much appreciated. TL;DR PC boots ups in the last state where it was "fine" and any changes or installed new apps gets automatically deleted.

install windows 10 from download?
I have a computer, dual core 2.8 ghz processor, 6gb RAM, 160g HDD, running windows7 pro 64 bit. Can I download and install windows 10 from the download, or do I need to put it on a DVD or something? Do I need to go with windows10 pro because I I have windows 7 pro, or can I just use the home version? I don't do any gaming or anything. I'm sure all this has been discussed before, but when you try to look something up, you don't get what you look up, because of the connection to advertising. And if I download and upgrade, can I go back to my old operating system(Win7 pro) if I don't like 10? No doubt I am going to have to be dragged screaming and kicking into the future, but if someone can help me with the answer to my questions, it will be greatly appreciated.
Backing up and restoring the registry
WARNING: Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE) is a very powerful tool that lets you make changes to the registry. However, incorrectly using Registry Editor can cause serious, system-wide problems that include hard disk corruption, general instability, or being unable to use your computer. It may be necessary for you to reinstall your operating system to correct the problems. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Also, Microsoft does not support changes made to the registry. Use this tool at your own risk. Backing up and restoring your registry can be done by: - Exporting to the registry file for backup - Importing to Registry Editor for restoration - Creating a restore point for backup / using System Restore for restoration - Creating a system image for backup / using System Image for restoration To back up / restore your registry: 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R, type "regedit" and press ENTER. 2. Do the following: - If you want to back up one of the registry keys, navigate to any, click Export on the File menu, type the name, and then press ENTER. - To restore the registry, click Import on the File menu, find the file that ends with .REG, and then double-click it. PROFESSIONAL TIPS: Instead of importing to or exporting from Registry Editor, it's strongly recommended to either create a restore point or create a system image. That way, you can use System Restore or System Image Recovery in case changes to the registry can cause your computer a problem.
