Welcome to Eleven Forum

Run SFC /ScanNow to check for and fix possible system corruption.


If it finds problems it cannot fix, use DISM to repair the component store, then run SFC again.

If it were me and SFC and Dism both worked fine, I'd download a fresh ISO, create a brand new USB drive and do an in-place upgrade to see if that worked and if not, do a fresh install again with that new USB.

In my opinion, the biggest problem with an upgrade is junk carried over from the old OS into the new one. All of us are guilty of using third party software and much of this junk is from these third party apps that may be incompatible with the new OS and can cause unexplained results in the new OS. There is more junk that accumulates over time that we don't even know is there. While I agree that in some cases doing a repair install (which is nothing more than another inplace upgrade) can resolve issues, I'm of the old school mentality that in the long run, the only way to know that any new OS is clean is to start clean. When I change OS, I always bite the bullet and clean install to make sure nothing will come back to bite me in the butt. Once I have a known good baseline, I make a system image and go from there, imaging along the way until the next new OS comes around the bend. But that's just me and it's worked out well for me so far.

From my own personal experience, upgrading from Windows 10 seems to cause issues, however when I do a clean install on the same hardware Windows 11 works just fine; it seems like upgrading to Windows 11 causes unforeseen issues. I'd recommend backing up your data and then doing a clean install.

Some of us have no option, we have software that cannot be reinstalled. If we want to keep using it we can only upgrade from one OS to the next.

My System One below can trace it's history back though 15 upgrades, from Windows 11 now, back through every version of Windows 10, to an original OEM install of Windows 7 which got the free upgrade to 10 on 29th July 2015. Along the way the installed OS and all my software was migrated from my old 'main machine' to a new 'Windows 11 compatible' PC in readiness for the upgrade to 11. So far I have had no 'unforeseen issues' and Windows 11 is running perfectly.

Those do look serious. An in-place repair upgrade as @Archigos suggested will reinstall Windows, while keeping all installed aps and user files.

An in-place repair upgrade
But in his case would it be advisable? From what I gather those errors are caused by registry files containing broken links because of software that was either never properly installed, apps that weren't fully uninstalled, and apps that were installed over another app of a different version. A repair install would not get rid of them, because as you say, it would keep his apps.

If anything he might could try a clean boot. Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 11 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts Tutorial
