  • I have a problem on my pc since the update that KO’d the start menu. I run Kaspersky Password Manager which I can no longer access. The pw I used on this tablet and the pc seems to have become invalid due, I suspect because the keyboard layout has reverted back to the US version. It tells me that I can change my pw, but am not able to get to my emails, as I cannot retrieve my current email pw from Kaspersky, on either machine. So I am locked out. Any suggestions?

  • I tried your startup repair option and the last window said, “Startup Repair couldn’t repair your PC”. Any other suggestions?

  • I tried the clean boot then I went into safe mode and tried a clean boot and after a few minutes the computer had problems and had to restart. I also noticed that if I shut down the computer by holding the power button for 8 seconds it would turn off but re-start by itself. The only way to shut it off is to cut off the power source. If not it will keep rebooting , shutting down and rebooting. DonL
