While I was cleaning my PC using CCleaner, I decided to delete windows.old folder. After cleaning process finished, programs never launch when I open it. I restarted the windows but it won't boot and give STOP CODE error.


Here is my Laptop Specification:

Model: Lenovo z570
CPU: intel i7-2670qm
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce gt 540m
RAM: 8GB
OS: Dual boot Ubuntu(main boot loader) & Windows 10


And here is the solutions I tried and none of them worked:

1- Startup Repair (took about 30-45 min and gives error)
2- Reset This PC (exit at 36% with Undoing Changes message)
3- Using Command Prompt
  • chkdsk c: /r /x & sfc /scannow
  • bootrec /fixmbr , bootrec /fixboot , bootrec /scanos , bootrec /rebuildbcd and it outputs: "Total identified windows installation: 0"
How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Never had CCleaner corrupt a boot, it's something else. When you replace the Windows boot loader with the Linux one, all kinds of strange things can happen to Windows.
Search internet for "repair Windows 10 boot loader".
