    so i was changing permissions for some files so i can edit or delete them. somehow an error occurred and deleted all text from my desktop. some example are like folder names or any text on a program, i cant even see text in cmd or in powershell and it wont let me type in either. i tried updating my pc, removing updates from my pc, backing up my pc and even factory resetting my pc and every test fail. so i looked online and every one said to use "system file checker" but i cant because i cant use cmd or powershell because my text is hidden. please help me ive been at it for hours now and a little frustrated...

    Same problem when booting from a Live CD/USB?

    A Live CD/DVD or USB flash drive contains a complete bootable computer operating system (OS). When you boot a computer from it, the OS loads into, and then runs from memory instead of a hard drive. This allows you to run an OS without installing it or making any changes to a computer's current configuration.

    To create one, download an ISO file containing the OS you want to use, (such as Ubuntu, Slax or Zorin), then use something like ISO Recorder to burn it to a CD/DVD or USB key.

    Now boot your computer from this disc/key and your computer will be running that OS instead of the one on its hard drive.​

    When you're done testing, simply reboot your PC from the hard drive.

    If the problem persists even when running a different OS, then the issue is probably hardware related.
