    How To Fix Can't Boot - BCD errors?

    I think this is probably well covered somewhere. If someone could point me in that direction. I have a machine that won't boot into Win10. I got a message that the BCD was invalid. I have a USB win10 install/recovery thing. I'm not sure what to call it. I made it in response to the advice...

    Defender Says My PC is Dangerous - why/what/how?

    Yesterday I was getting messages that I think were from windows defender, that it had blocked a communication to a bad place. ( I forget the words it used, you know what I mean I guess?).
