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.
We purchased the machine used with Win 7.0 OS. No known issues.
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
Admin rights are restricted, incomplete and marginally functional.
Random new installs, random upgrades are not completing Registry process.
Admin icons and text instruction ar.e missing,
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.

What do you mean by not completing the registry process?
