My problem first occurred a long time ago when i wanted hyper v to work for bluestacks and like a dimwit I downloaded many different hyper v somethings from Microsoft and my pc basically became a brick so i had to reset it and it worked but now a certain game doesn't play and hyper v was working but not for everything i needed on bluestacks(only nougat 64 works not pie 64) Later i read on bluestacks and they had a solution for hyper v but you had to switch to windows 11 i clicked delete all and was content but to my surprise not only did the game still not work i had all my files even though i clicked delete all, I'm sure this is all connected somehow I could be wrong. Also now bluestacks pie 64 works so theres that.

    Simplest solution is a clean installation of windows. Boot from the install media, delete / recreate partition, follow the prompts to complete the install, patch fully and you'll be good to go.
