Question... I assume you have already tried restarting the computer? It's possible there is a ghost process somewhere screwing things up and preventing it from starting properly.

To be honest, I'm really clutching at straws here Undecided

The only other things that I can think of are:
- Permissions problem with Windows... was it an upgrade of an existing installation of Windows? or a clean install of Windows 10 on a formatted drive?
- Corrupt Windows install and Windows is missing some libraries/dlls or something like that. Huh

Like I said, clutching at straws...

Am going to run DISM then SFC on Win10 to try and fix.

About all I could recommend at this stage... would be to try creating Win10 install media

And then try using one of the "repair" options when booting... I would just make sure that you backup all your important stuff BEFORE you try doing any repairing/restoring... I ran into an issue a while back and attempted to do a "dirty" reinstall, and apparently Microsoft's idea of "will keep all your data" is a bit different to mine! Roll Eyes Undecided I lost a bunch of stuff because it wiped certain directories that I didn't think it would...

It might also be worth considering going as far as backing up, then completely wiping the PC and doing a clean install...

Sigh. It didn't work.

Would creating a Windows 10 bootable USB, then formatting laptop, then clean installing it be worth a go?

Yeah, as above... last resort would be to create the media, backup your important stuff, wipe the computer and clean install.

Wait, have you tried to repair the laptop through checkdisk command?
If not do this first, follow this guide below to repair OS though CMD(command prompt)

- How to Run CHKDSK on Windows 10

If it doesn't work your final solution is to reformat the laptop with a fresh OS. I hope that you have a fresh OS not modified/customized one.

Created a Win10 bootable USB, formatted drive and did a clean install...and finally it worked! QT now running and the blockchain is downloading. Thanks everyone for all your help. I will be running a full node soon.

Yeah... I've never really been a bit fan of "upgrading" Windows OS installs... it is usually a lot less hassle in the long run to wipe the computer (or get another harddrive) and start with a fresh install.

Anyway, glad you managed to get it sorted finally! Good luck with the sync Wink

Many thanks - clean install and now QT is running. Blockchain downloading as I type!
