Hi all, would seriously appreciate some help with this! Recently after rebooting my pc, it says that my pc/device needs to be repaired because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. \windows.old\WINDOWS/system32\DRIVERS\MbamElam.sys I have tried disabling the Elam thing from startup (f8), it gets on windows, but mbam can't start the service, trying it manually from services.msc says (from memory) error 507, something about being unable to validate it. Avast free's UI also doesn't load, but apparently the shields are on. Win Def is on, I remember putting periodic scanning scanning on but not the AV. What could be the problem? When I load windows, it gives me an option for either win 10 or win 10 pro, "pro" is the old version, the one that can't boot, never noticed this before, I can get to login with win 10 normal but haven't tried logging in, idk of this is relevant. I also looked in the driver folder and MbamElam.sys is there, why isn't it starting up? Disabling Elam from startup probably has something to do with the AV/mbam being disabled, but it's the only way I can access win 10 pro. I can get into bootmode. Recently I have installed a win areo application, a new screensaver, and some skins for classic start menu, as well as a new update. Restore might work here, although even though system protection is on I can't find a backup, although I think there was a one from the 18th with startup repair... Any help?
