Thanks for the advice I am ordering a USB adaptor but only a cheap one so I hope it works! The reason I need to go back to windows is I have a corrupt drive and it won't show all my folders on windows or Linux so it needs repairing, I didn't get a chance to use malwarebytes on it before I installed Linux from win10 and it is more buggy on here than windows, so half the time I can't access anything on the drive and as best half of the folders. On windows I could see half of my folders. On windows random files and folders started appearing with random symbols and would not delete as they 'didn't exist', so this is another issue I'm facing and I'm sure isn't easy to sort out on Linux. Btw I can view all the files and folders on my tv 📺 🤔

Fedora was the easiest install and out of the box working distro from my hp stream 11. It should be more than capable of helping you fix your system. But I found it annoying to use if you want to do anything more than fiddle with files. If you create a bootable USB drive, you don't even have to do that on the machine you intend to use it on.
