Suddenly my pc is starting to weird things.

Start menu isn't working. Cortana isn't working. Edge isn't working, Store isn't Working.
All apps are frequently crashing.
Sometimes restarting - "Your pc ran into a prob..."
Became very slow.
Edge icon is disappeared from taskbar.

After a few crashes, it automatically started checking disks, it checked c: drive and did a few restarts. (It absolutely fixed nothing)
I have malwarebytes, i did a full system scan, nothing was found. although looks like it quarantined some threats,
I did sfc /scannow, it said "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them"

I have no idea what's happening. its a pain to do a reinstall windows. also i can't install all my programs again (i just updated to windows 10 a few months back, and was a pain to get my stuff back)

Anyway, if there's no other way to get around this, i could reinstall.
But please help?

If you have an anti-virus I would suggest uninstalling it and use the built in windows defender that came with windows 10.
I had a few of the issue you mention previously when I had avast with windows 10.
After uninstalling avast it seems to be running fine until now.
Let me know if it helps you.

Did everything. nothing seems to work. looks like resetting is the only way. i have no choice.
There is most probably no way i can keep the applications like cinema 4d and after effects, can i?

You have to install everything again unfortunately.

You can use this to try to copy anything over you want to keep that isn't in a library: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

but, yes, you have to reinstall all your programs... might want to copy everything out of libraries as well, just in case reset fails.. as then only choice is to download windows 10 from here and make a bootable usb or dvd, and fresh install win 10: Win 10 Media creation tool

how to fresh install: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html

Fresh install a good idea after an upgrade anyway, no old drivers around to mess you up. I upgraded last year and the entire time the search function didn't work, it couldn't find anything. Fresh install and suddenly I can find things like troubleshooters using search.
