Shutdowns first started after opening a window to perform a function. I could not build a recovery drive, run a troubleshooter, or do any tasks longer than 1.5 minutes. Not sure it was time-related but the shutdowns just came faster and faster.
ANd the QR code error page that shows does not stay long enough to scan or read the whole message. I do know it mentioned the Insider Program.
I have since reset the machine but wonder if I missed the problem and only jumped over it for now. Is there a way to check the status of my installation, like if I am at the correct version for this time and date?
