[Win10] Malfunctioning system apps and settings

Sep 2, 2018
Lenovo Z51-70. First it didn't boot into logon screen. Did a registry restore on advanced startup menu and did log in.
Most tile apps don't open; including defender's tile app-- the win7-esque one does.

Services.msc -showing Microsoft management Console giving error 'not enough storage is available to complete this operation'- and many other systematic sections in the setting are malfunctioning; including device manager.

sfc online desn't repair and offline -before booting into desktop- doesn't show any issue. Reset stops at half way through the process. Not considering fresh install.

Did you try starting it up in "Safe Mode" to see if you get the same issues?

How to enter "Safe Mode" when booting the computer.

In Windows 8 and 10...

As your computer restarts, press F8 (possibly a few times) to enter "Safe Mode"

a. Press the "F4" key to Enable "Safe Mode".
(The computer will then start in "Safe Mode" with a minimal set of drivers and services.)

b. Press the "F5" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Networking.
( Once "Safe Mode" with Networking starts, Windows is in Safe Mode, with additional network and services for accessing the Internet and other computers on your network.)

c. Press the "F6" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Command Prompt.
(In "Safe Mode" with "Command Prompt" starts Windows in Safe Mode, with a Command Prompt window instead of the Windows interface. This option is mostly only used by IT professionals.)

Now sign in to the computer with your account name and password. (If you have one set.) When you are finished troubleshooting, you can exit "Safe Mode" restarting your computer.

In Windows 7/Vista/XP...

1. Immediately after turning on the computer, or restarting it (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key, repeatedly, in 1 second intervals.

2. The computer will then display hardware information and run a memory test.

3. Next the "Advanced Boot Options" menu will appear.

4. In the "Advanced Boot Options" menu use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" and press ENTER.
