Windows 11 22H2
I run Windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.755 but log-in is slow and sluggish, my webcam does not work, and some programs do not install. I should probably do a clean install of Windows 11 but do not look forward to re-install my many programs such as Matlab, Mathcad, Office 360, ACDSee, Grapher, Surpher ......would a Repair Install of Windows 11 with an In-place Upgrade allow me to keep my data and installed Apps and also to allow me to avoid reinstalling my many already installed programs?

I would suggest first using an app like Macrium Reflect to create an image of your current setup (also create and test a Macrium boot usb), save the image somewhere safe, external hard drive for example, back up any personal files safely as well.
A repair install would most likely work as you want, however no one can tell you it will 100% work as expected so a bit of pre planning would be wise.

You should investigate why the login is so sluggish (is it sluggish using a new profile or in safe mode?) and why some hardware doesn't work and why some software installs fail, these may be indicative of some more serious underlying problems which may well surface again shortly after a fresh install, whether repair or clean.

If you get no where or don't relish the thought, then try the in place/ repair install, maybe spend some time tracking down drivers you might need to re install in case Windows over writes with default/ generic ones, might be a good opportunity to get updated drivers.
If it works all good, if not you can simply restore your image to get back to where you were.

Things that could cause an issue are if your apps are installed in non default locations, if you have moved/ redirected your user folders, changed default path assignments etc, restoring these to the defaults before attempting the repair install could help things to go smoothly.
Although a repair install can work very well, occasionally a clean install can be better but may require a lot more preparation.

There are tutorials on these forums for using Macrium Reflect (the free version is normally all you need) and for exporting your current drivers for re install after a fresh Windows install, if you prefer that method.

I've rarely had to re-install software after a repair install. There are no guarantees, though.

There are also no guarantees that a repair install will solve your issue, though.

I second the recommendation to image your existing Windows installation before proceeding. It's the sort of thing you should already be doing, anyway.

Someone on this forum pointed me to a batch file called 'tuneup1.bat'. I downloaded and ran the file which found corrupt files and repaired them. Maybe that might help. Maybe someone can show the link to it?

It might be worth trying.

Running SFC /SCANNOW in an admin command prompt would be a first step before trying anything else and maybe the following DISM commands, also in an admin prompt:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
A sluggish login could be due to a vast number of temporary files in the user folders, corrupt user profile or any mumber of other issues that most commands might not fix, finding the issue before trying to apply 'random' fixes would be better.

The batch file I mentioned does all those things with one double-click. I'll try to attach my copy of it. The forum may prevent uploading batch files.

A sluggish login isn't going to be caused by corrupted files. It isn't going to be resolved by DISM or SFC either. I would suggest that you check which programs and services you've got enabled to start at boot.

The OPs issues are more than just a sluggish login, they also have problems with hardware and software not working correctly so people are listing several methods of approaching troubleshooting which the OP can choose from to proceed in whichever order they prefer.

Maybe you have too many services and applications running at startup. Press Win+R to open a Run window and run the command msconfig . Then check the box to hide Microsoft services and examine carefully the rest. Disable any non-essential ones such as Google updater, Mozilla Maintenance etc. Also disable all startup applications. This should speedup your login. Also make sure you don't have two or more antivirus running at the same time. Uninstall them all and leave only one. Next step is to update all your drivers, preferably from manufacturer, don't rely on Windows Update. Then, if necessary, run an in-place upgrade to fix any remaining issues. This can restore some applications to Windows default. You can then change the default applications again and no harm done.

PS: For older computers with onboard graphics, you can also disable transparency, fades and animations to greatly improve performance.

Just a thought. Download Hard Disk Sentinel or similar utility and check your hard disk health. Anything under 95% needs replacement. Even with 100% health an old mechanical hard disk can get very slow over time. I would consider replacing it with an SSD. You can use Acronis or Macrium Reflect to clone your old disk to the SSD to keep both your apps and data. Defragmenting the disk can help but don't expect miracles.

I strongly advise against using anything that promises a faster/better system as it's simply a disguised registry cleaner and if you are not careful it will render a system unusable.

If you want to clean the Registry use a better known application such as CCleaner but it won't help much. If you have an old mechanical hard disk, replace it with an SSD and you will think you got a new PC! At least ten times faster. You will have to see to believe it.

It won't help at all.
Somebody ran comparative tests ages ago and found that Registry cleaners were no better than the built-in CleanManager [aka Disk clean] when it came to speeding up the system.
- See Fred Langa's results [Table 3] comparing speed of booting improvements from use of Disk cleanup & two popular third-party tools - Putting Registry/system cleanup apps to the test - Fred Langa (WebArchive)
- Fred's results indicate that CleanMgr does the job as effectively as third party tools [which also indicates that the slower responses, that make people turn to these tools, are caused by temp files].
- You might also like to see MS's statements on the subject -
And thanks to @Callender for posting Fred's results.


All the best,
Denis

Someone on this forum pointed me to a batch file called 'tuneup1.bat'. ... Maybe someone can show the link to it?
I strongly advise against using anything that promises a faster/better system as it's simply a disguised registry cleaner

That tuneup.bat file is available from
Batch files and instructions for use in BSOD debugging - TenForums
and contains SFC & DISM commands [not Registry cleaners or any other variants of snake oil].

All the best,
Denis

Registry issues don't slow too much the system. The first culprit is running more than one antivirus at the same time or running too many startup applications (usually updaters). Then is a slow mechanical hard disk or damaged disk ( low health). You may also have many malwares eating ip your system resources. Do a full scan with Superantispyware or Malwarebytes Antimalware and remove everything found.

Win11 22623.891
I run Windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.755 but log-in is slow and sluggish, my webcam does not work, and some programs do not install. I should probably do a clean install of Windows 11 but do not look forward to re-install my many programs such as Matlab, Mathcad, Office 360, ACDSee, Grapher, Surpher ......would a Repair Install of Windows 11 with an In-place Upgrade allow me to keep my data and installed Apps and also to allow me to avoid reinstalling my many already installed programs?
I just ran it. Nothing changed. I did it as I thought it would fix the file explorer title bar color (I can get the accent color only by running sfc /scannow at every restart) Didn't work, title bar still grey. Thankfully all my data, files, apps and icons were not affected, not sure what the in-place install actually did. I see no difference after running the in-place upgrade so I guess my system had no issues to begin with) This method is much easier than doing a reset.

Go to the HP website, get another copy of the display driver & install it.
While you're there, check for any Bios updates.
I cannot say that driver corruption is the cause of your problem but you have visual misbehaviour & there is no diagnostic test to identify its cause.

Best of luck,
Denis
