Customer Question

I recently upgraded a Lenovo "ThinkPad" Type: 2847 - 9UU; Ser # LR-FBYGM 10/7. I sucessfully completed the upgrade from MS Windows 7, to Windows 8.0/8.1 Prof. Later to MS Windows 10 Prof (MS Free Win 10 upgrade). To date, I've failed to resolve the issues in a satisfactory manner.

Machine upgraded with MS downloadable of Win 8.0 followed by and 8.1. No known issues.
Eight months to a year later machine upgraded to downloaded version of Win 10 Prof

Random new installs, random upgrades are not completing Registry process.
Admin icons and text instruction ar.e missing,
Summary:
This Lenovo "ThinkPad" is in nearly first class shape. With resolution of the suspected software issue I should get 2 or 3 years of work out it and my daughter graduates college.
Thank you!..... for any assistance you and/or Lenovo can supply.
