No money? Have another PC? USB?

Then it's DBAN to wipe the drive then one more download of W10 using the Microsoft Media Creation Kit to do another clean install like you did before but with "regular" Windows 10.

DBAN is easy to find on the web.
DBAN Tutorials are on the web.

I used Google.com to find this tool and tutorials along with where the Microsoft Media Creation Kit is as well as tutorials on this FREE item.

Can i clean the partition

Can i just delete the windows prtition than re-install?

Clean is not deletion.

Those are two different concepts. Also you have to remove ALL the partitions to be sure your new W10 will install which DBAN would do for you.

I find many are uncomfortable with the Windows installer's Partition Manager plus there are situations where only DBAN would let us start over.

This is why I shared the sure way rather than the way that should work but has at times failed.

Partitions

So can i just delete all partitions? I dont have access to another pc nor am i interested in “DBAN” no offense.

You can try.

" I have access to another computer which i can create a bootable usb."

Odd that you told the forum this up top.

There is a situation that you need a drive eraser. You'll know if this happens as soon as you begin your new install.

Oops

Well i sont exactly own one. Its a friends he lets me use it if i need to.. so plan is so delete all partitions than install windows 10 brand spankin new.. hopefully it will work! And how do i use a dual band 2x2 asus wifi antenna thing? Do i just install drivers and open the driver up?after i plug the cable things in?

As to the Dual band thing.

Most folk use the driver and manual that came with it or on the Asus site. I must not duplicate Asus's instructions here.
