>>I too am in my mid 70's and Windows is testing my nervous system. Anyway, I recommend Macrium reflect imaging program free b/c it makes a WinPE disc for you in case you have UEFI and also makes a Linux disc for the older BIOS.
Yesterday night when i came home from work, i turn on my laptop with windows 8.1 and its started loading "pc repair", after it finished i get a message saying it could not repair automaticly.
So i have tried advanced-restore point, it just failed.
Hi, I'm having the exact same problem. PC started, login screen appeared. I left the room. When I came back PC was in repair mode. No option works. Exact same behavior as you. There must be a general issue with this.
