I downloaded windows 10 quite awhile back and now I am experiencing severe problems with booting my computer. I attempted to start up my computer when I noticed that while starting up, the “Please Wait” screen with the spinning dots and the personalized color background was taking an unreasonably long time to go away. So I used ctrl+alt+del and it took me to the windows page where I would normally see the accounts and be able to sign in. But instead of seeing that, all I got was a windows page with network, ease of access, and power options with no trace of the accounts.
I used F12 boot menu as well but a prompt saying that I was missing something to boot off of or something of the like and ran a diagnostics test.
