This afternoon, I upgraded my home PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10

After entering the log in screen, I get nothing - just black screens.

A pop-up with the following message appears:

"C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll The specified module could not be found."

Any advice to get me going? :)

LogiLDA.dll is the logitech Download Assistant.

What you can do is go into the registry and remove the entry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run key

BUT the gotya is if you cant boot into windows you need to load the registry off line. I do have a easy way (somewhere) just need to find the download for the software.

But have a read of this ( its rather long winded) https://www.winhelponline.com/blog/edit-registry-offline-windows-re/

Okay, found the ISO but its linux and had a mental wouldn't load :(

BUT Theres another way - Download Lazesoft Recovery Suite Home https://www.lazesoft.com/lazesoft-recovery-suite-free.html

Download and install on another PC Make the ISO, burn to CD or USB option, boot from it, from Start - Registry Editor --- ye de ya (Ok etc) load the registry, select SystemTarget OS, navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

See if the Logitech entry is there, if it is delete it, exit out the editor , reboot. All going well it will start.

Note: Can upload the Finished ISO if you want. 322MB

There are several other methods as well. One is Via HBCD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBgIOK4Cyaw The video appears to error but it does run after a moment. BUT have not used it in years so dont know if it will work or not. https://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/HBCD_PE_x64.iso

Now the PC is switching itself off, each and every time I log on :(

Will it start in Safe Mode ?

Often crashes like that are caused by incompatible or damaged Drivers.

Did you do a clean install? Format the drive and start again.
If you haven't done a backup of your data you may be able to recover it by booting with a Linux USB stick, and copy the files.

After several hours of restarting my PC, I appear to have a working computer - fingers crossed.

How long will it last?

If I revert back to Windows 7, can I try another upgrade at a later date?

as noted above, better to do a clean install.
Youve got some crud left over from years of Win7

Backup data , wipe HD with a clean install : boot from a Win10 DVD (download the ISO) & there is an option to wipe all old partitions on the HD

I had just installed a new (larger) SSD as my C Drive to accommodate the upgrade :)

Hi Zippity
Glad you've upgraded to W10.
The sooner we get everyone on it, the better off we wil all be with only one system to support and help with.

(I just wish that MS would hurry up and finsish the Settings App)

What?
So no-one should be allowed to use:
Apple
Linux
Android or anything other than Win10.

Hi,
Zippity,
Have you ever got a answer for your 12-09-2007 question:

"Any Western film Buffs out there?
I am trying to find the name of a western that I saw back in the late 60's early 70's
The film opens with a rifleman aiming a bipod mounted long barrel rifle at a horse rider who is approaching from a long way distant down a valley.
Any ideas? "

I'd like to tell you that I've been asking the same question for years with the same results you apparently had.

I was watching TV yesterday and out of the blue I got the answer that I was lookink for.

I hope that this is the answer for your question too:

"Billy Two Hats" (1974), directed by Ted Kotcheff. It stars Gregory Peck, Jack Warden and Desi Arnaz, Jr.

You can watch the 1974 original trailer on Youtube.

The scene you've mentioned is there.

P.S.: I hope you don't mind me changing subject in your thread about Windows 10, but your original thread "Any Western film Buffs out there?" was closed.

I think I have now got the opening scene that I was chasing 12 years ago - "For a Few Dollars More".

Winston001 tipped that off to me 12-09-2007 and I have only just checked it out :)
