    Default System Configuration on Start Up

    Sometimes when I startup my computer and and try to log in, the system configuration window pops up asking for normal startup, diagnostic startup, and selective startup. I can log in if I just ignore it, but if I try to select normal startup and press apply or okay, it automatically goes back to selective startup and the window still pops up after I start it up later on. I've also tried checking the "Make all boot settings permanent" under the Boot tab
    Please help me stop this from coming up every time!

    Have you recently used the configuration utility to make changes?

    What items are in the startup list?
    Click the startup tab, then open task manager.

    Run a couple of repairs first. Open a CMD by typing cmd in the search, right click it, then type in sfc /scannow <Press enter> see if it finds any faults. If it does and fixes them, then retry starting, if it finds faults but cant fix them, then run the following command Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    If it asks for the location of files, make sure you have a W10 DVD or USB drive with W10 on it. then run the following command.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:E:\Sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Where it says wim:E: change the drive letter to what ever the USB or DVD drive is. When its running it will generally appear to stop at 20% This is normal, it will carry on its own.

    When you see the startup pop up on reboot, the tick box is usually on the lower left corner in small letters.
