descriptionSolvedSlow computer and no apps after computer crash

more_horiz
Hi all,

Last week my moms computer was failing to boot, coming up with an error screen. No options to fix or starting in safe mode would allow me to get past this. A friend booted from a CD and now I am back on the system, but many (not all) of the apps from the store will not work and the computer is running slowly.

I ran Malewarebytes (results below), avira antivirus (no major threats detected) and the windows virus scanner as well as the Farbar recovery scan tool. Farbar discovered an error 'unable to start a dcom server error 15612' but none of the fixes I've found online worked. 

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks,

Hi @enceladus

If you decide you want the preinstalled apps back, you can get them back with a single line of PowerShell code. Open a PowerShell window as Administrator. Copy and paste the following line into the PowerShell window and press Enter:

Code:

Get-AppxPackage –AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}


This tells Windows to install those default apps again. Give it some time and allow it to finish, even if nothing appears to happen at first. Even if you see an error message, restart and examine your Start menu — you may just have all those default apps back again, anyway.

We will deal with slow computer after you have installed default apps.
