Hello. I have Windows 10 installed on an SSD with most of my programs installed on an HDD. I wanted to try the Linux subsystem thing Microsoft released, so I turned it on in the "Turn Windows Features On" menu. My PC started to bootloop. I tried booting into safe mode, restoring to earlier system restore point, startup repair, and bootrec commands in the recovery environment. Nothing worked. Turning on the Linux Subsytem ruined my Windows, so I reinstalled Windows. All my files and almost all my programs were on my HDD, which is good. Though only problem is that Windows does not know my programs are installed. If I go to the installation folder in the HDD, they will open. But the programs are not listed in the list of programs in the apps and features/ programs and features list. They also don't show up with search. I guess I could make most of them work by just making a shortcut to my Desktop, but is there a better way? Do I need to reinstall them? Also, a bonus question is why did the Linux ruin my Windows and if I could turn it on without being bootlooped. Thank you for your reply.
