Hi Larry,

I just triple checked the logs and there is no mention of chkdsk. I have no idea what happened.

The only time that this computer is on-line is to update software that either is a PITA to do off-line or has no off-line service available. Thus my Ethernet card is mostly disabled. I also keep Defender turned off because if it is on it has a propensity to slow my DAW to a crawl. I also keep anti-malwarebytes turned off for the same reason.

After each software update I update and run both Defender and anti-malwarebytes. After they are finished those two are turned off and the Ethernet card disabled. Note that no other anti-virus was installed on this computer.

The system was running fine, as I was able to turn those off and on with no problem. I turned them off, shut down my system, and went to bed. The next day I had the problem all over again.

Today I DLed the free Avast anti-virus. Thus far all is fine, i.e. I have shut down and started it with no problems. We shall see in the morning if all is still OK. Note I scanned everything with Avast and it didn't find any viruses either.

Thanx for you time and help - MarioD

PS - I'm going to buy another 1 TB HD just in case.

Hey Mario, for the network on/off, I just use the following 2 DOS command lines each in their own .BAT file with shortcuts on the desktop. That way I can turn the network off and on with a click.

I also have the DISABLE one set up in Scheduled tasks to turn off the network overnight each night at the same time and have the window prompt me that it's going to turn off in 1 minute. That way I can stop it if I'm working on something online.

netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" ENABLED

netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" DISABLED

I don't turn off anything else and Microsoft seems to not have any issues with updates.

Also "Ethernet" above is the name of my main network connection. Could be different in your case.

Mario,

(1) This might help:

It was sent to me by Microsoft after a posting to their community:

(First, set a Restore Point, just in case.)

Open up your Command Prompt window (Start Menu-->Windows System-->Command Prompt) and type (note the spaces):

sfc /scannow

[Shift]-[Ctrl]-[Enter] to run as administrator

After the error report, even if nothing is found, type:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

[Shift]-[Ctrl]-[Enter] to run as administrator

I hope that the same magic occurs for you that occurred for me---everything was back as it should be. Also, I noticed no recent data losses.

(2) I'd say you're due for an update. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update cleared up issues for me, including a Windows Defender error that was introduced by Driver Assist (I do NOT recommend this program) and could not be rectified by the outdated version of Windows 10. It also makes Edge run faster, more reliably, resolves issues for it, and does not delete Favorites for Edge like previous updates did (although, I would still export my bookmarks/favorites from within Edge before I updated, using the export option in the upper-right "•••" menu (Settings->Import from another browser->Export to file). I'd say you're due for an update.

Good luck.
