    I just tried running Murphy's Clean & ResetBase WinSxS Folder script for Windows 8.1 on Windows 10 and it did not work - got stuck at 48%. Doing so added another 1GB of used space on drive C... I need to stop using Windows 8.1 stuff for Windows 10.

    Anyway, how do I do the same thing (Clean & ResetBase WinSxS Folder) on Windows 10 to clean up that extra 1GB+?

    Yes, but too late now! I just want to fix that WinSxS folder and remove that 1GB of whatever was created!

    So I ran DISM RestoreHealth, SFC ScanNow, Chkdsk + bad sector scan & repair, and System files clean up. None had issues, BUT after I rebooted, my mouse cursor disappeared. I had to unplug and re-plug my mouse for it to be detected. I guess it is safe to say my Windows 10 OS is now FUBAR and needs format+reinstall?

    Yep, i would say it's better.

    RECOMMENDATION: Create Sytem Image Backup, then start experiments.

    Did all that - the extra 1GB of used space remains and my mouse was not detected upon boot up, requiring me to unplug and replug it. I think my OS has gone bad already...

    I re-installed Windows 10 on formatted SSD and didn't run any Windows 8.1 tweak/fixes or NET Framework for Windows 8.1. I DID, however, install DirectX 9 using the same files I had for Windows 8.1. Is that OK? DirectX 9 is universal for Windows Vista and up, isn't it?

    I also installed MS Redistributable package (from 2010 to 2015) - that also should not be a problem, should it?

    It should not add to your system. It only removes things.
    Do you have an anti-virus program or something running?

    It sometimes seems to pause and take quite a long time. Let it run. You don't want to stop it.

    You are right! I'm a DUMB-ASS! It didn't take away extra 1GB, it provided an extra 1GB of free space, but it did get stuck at 48% for good 15 minutes - that's a no-no...

    If you Resetbase the first time it can last 30-60 mins to complete. Inbetween a lot of stuff gets re-assembled, moved to temp location and then deleted. So murphy is right, if you stop it, you're doomed!!!

    When too much time ... better STAY OFF.
