If you have then got the latest version of the Windows DVD ISO or USB. What I would suggest a is open up whichever browser use. Go to Google, type in windows 10 ISO now. It should be the very first one initially Microsoft down go down again. You'll see other companies,
Excedrin and a website that does go straight to the original windows 10 ISO okay, now down, click on the update. Now we need to use this download tool that seven run the program and then this windows open up in Laurel get a few things and what I want to show is how to create that ISO except the turning this of happy with it now create installation media from the PC next icate now use the recommended options for this PC is obvious that an automatic check to see what canals architects like 64-bit windows 10 et cetera okay, you could get rid of that and their new curd shames them, you could get a home edition a okay in this case was on a stick with the recommended options. Click next. You could maybe USB flash drive from here, make sure you have at lease for gig fast right or this ISO file. What it will do is any click next and then choose where you want the same for example, desktop, and it will be called windows.ISO click save and a little download is finished, it will create an ISO on the computer.

I can however, that assume it has come to that, then we click install right from this point onwards. Don't try and flip between screen by pressing the old term which you can do like ageis back off.
Make sure before you had done all this, you weren't having any problems running et cetera this thing is basically no reinstalling windows on top of your existing windows can I give you a clean version of all the Windows files and it's keeping your programs all your private files and Word documents, et cetera okay, now this can take some time, it could take 15 minutes 30 minutes depending on house so your machine is how much data there is et cetera and will go from 0% will restart and then maybe recite can and we shall come back after it handles down all installation and show you what happens at that point okay after it has rebooted and installed everything and then you log in of the password length of the password and I go straight through and then this is how it started, says hiding things really just like as it is something a new PC. Okay, I will show you. Once the screen comes back to normal windows. If we look over here. Okay rigourous C drive okay it does have a windows. Old folder, and if we go to hidden items.
