    Hi itzAtlaf,
    regarding IE, You might have to maximise it a few times before Windows remembers what you prefer. Also just in relation to using Torrents, these are well known sources for picking up viruses and spyware. Make sure you run something like Malwarebytes on a regular basis:
    https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Regarding the folder view. Once you've changed your folder view to what you prefer then you can make this the default 'look' by opening Windows Explorer, click on 'View' in the ribbon and then look for Folder Options situated on the right. Look for 'View' along the top, then 'Apply to all folders' tab. Make sure you click apply when done and then all your folder styles should be the same although to be honest I've noticed in previous occasions folders going back to a different setting. Windows 10 does seem a little better at remembering but I still find the odd section where the folders have shifted back to a different view.

    If I had to hap hazard a guess, I'd say it has a lot to do with your uTorrent websites and what downloads you have from those sites. Like I tell any who use those sites...you get what you ask for.

    That all said...you more than likely have a trojan, malware, spyware, worm and probably every other known infection on that system and maybe some corrupt and missing system files (OS). You say it was the same on your previous version of windows which leads me to the same conclusion of website habits.

    Open up a CMD prompt with Admin rights (right click cmd and select run as admin) then cut and paste this into it and hit enter.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    You could try a different method like a Reset or if the issue occurred after a bad shutdown try using system restore to go back before the time of the shutdown.

    Hmm... How come you don't have any restore points? Did you turn it off yourself as it's normally on by default. I've have a hunch you might be running an SSD? If so have you turned off stuff like page files and system restore?
