Windows 10 Clean BootWritten on March 7, 2019 by Chad Warmenhoven
Windows 10 clean boot
Sometimes during normal operation you may encounter errors or issues with Windows 10 that may not be easy to track down. If you aren't sure if the issues are hardware or software related, a simple way to eliminate/identify hardware is to perform a clean boot. When Windows performs a clean boot, no software or services are loaded and only the core OS system is booted. If your issue is resolved, then the issue is software related and all you need to do is re-enable each startup item one by one in order to determine which software is causing the issue.
