My eve started misbehaving badly today. It looked like windows stopped responding entirely, I found out that pressing ctrl+alt+delete “fixed” it temporarily until my mouse cursor came anywhere near the taskbar or some yet to be fully understood trigger(seems anything that is built in windows functionality). I have since found that windows actually responds, but the screen is not updated until i hit ctrl+alt+del and hits cancel to go back. Well, it seems the hover state on lists works if you somehow manage to hover the invisible mouse cursor over something.
The event log had quite a lot of errors in it, but the one that seemed to be the most likely suspect was this one that there were a lot of in the time before I managed to get myself to the event viewer.

sfc /scannow came out telling me
Cannot repair member file [l:24]'WindowsInkWorkspace.admx'
Duplicate ownership for directory \??\C:\WINDOWS\System32\en-US
Then I tried
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
But it only complained source files could not be found.
One thing I have noticed and been kind of worried about is that windows seems to report that my disk needs checking very often and has done so since day 1. chkdsk reports no faults by the way. I also had to jump through hoops forwards and backwards and around again to get windows store to work when I got it, maybe something is funky about my device and/or windows install?
Any tips will be appreciated, as right now it is borderline useless…
