You should have just done the ZA update, much simpler solution

what happened was that somehow all my system restore points got deleted,as well as losing system files.windows explorer wouldnt boot so i had to keep typing it in after windows started.after a short while it just crashed so i figured a new install would be about the right time after a year so in went extreme.(i have a shark swimming as my active dreamscene desktop now so its worth it).
