Reinstall the OS and follow the steps. You will get the permanent solution.
Make sure you don't update your OS. If you update, you will get the error again.

Will my documents get erased if I reinstall the


jinka varalakshmi says: August 3, 2017 at 6:56 pm

That depends on your hard disk drives. If you have more than one drive, you can install the OS on
C Drive and you can keep the files on other drives like D or E.
When you install OS on C drive, files which are in other drives will not be deleted.
