How to Fix SrtTrail.txt Log Error in Windows 10

If there are problems in Windows 10, users try to enter advanced settings while booting the system to restore the Windows 10 system, but unfortunately, the error message SrtTrail.txt appears on the PC screen. Microsoft has provided its own convenient, own tool for repairing the system in case of serious problems, but errors also occur in it. Automatic repair comes with Windows and has the ability to fix errors at boot. 
Thus, when the operating system does not boot properly, the automatic recovery feature comes to the rescue and makes efforts to repair Windows on its own. However, this tool sometimes does not work and displays the error below. Many times it goes into a restart and shutdown cycle. SrtTrail.txt error Windows 10 may also occur when using a blue screen (BDOS). The complete error message is as follows:
Startup Recovery failed to recover the computer. Click “advanced options” to try other recovery options, or “Shut Down” to turn off the computer. Log file C: \ WINDOWS \ System32 \ Logfiles \ Srt \ SrtTrail.txt.
If you have this error, then let’s try to fix it for Windows 10. Methods of complexity go in the reverse order, start with simple ones from below.
Solution 1: Repair BCD and MBR
1. The second you boot your system, start pressing F11 or F12 (the key may vary depending on the brand of the system) to boot the system in Recovery mode.
2. Now, click the option namely Repair your computer. You can see this option at the bottom of the screen.
3. Choose Troubleshoot from the “Boot menu” and when the next page shows up select Advanced Options.
4. Now, do a click on Command Prompt from the visible list.
5.When it appears in the display, type the following command one by one. Ensure to press Enter after each command in order to run it.
  • bootrec / rebuildbcd
  • bootrec / fixmbr
  • bootrec / fixboot

In some cases, you will need to enter bootsect / nt60 sys or bootsect / nt60 ALL. Reboot the PC and you need to do 6 for the full procedure.
If this method does not work for you and gives a bunch of errors, then use the detailed description of how to restore the Windows boot record. 
6. Sometimes you need to check the files and overwrite the bad ones. Enter the following chkdsk / r  C: command in CMD . You must do this for each partition of your PC, replacing C with a different local disk, for example D, F.
Find out the list of partitions: Enter three commands by pressing enter after each 1. diskpart 2. list volume 3.exit

7.Finally, restart Windows 10 PC and check if the issue still persisting or not.
Solution 2: Disable automatic Startup Repair
1. Open Command Prompt in the recovery mode as explained in Solution 1.
2. Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:
bcdedit / set {default} recoveryenabled No
3. Restart your system and check if disabling automatic startup repair allows you to boot into the system. Thereafter, you could perform the earlier explained troubleshooting in normal mode.
Solution 3: Disable Early launch anti-malware protection
One of the causes of the issue is that the anti-virus software might be interfering with the automatic repair process. However, we cannot log in to the system to disable or uninstall the anti-virus software, thus we would have to do it through an option in the recovery mode.
1. Reboot your system in recovery mode and explained in as Solution 1.
2. Go to Troubleshoot >> Advanced options >> Startup Settings.
3. Click on Restart on the Startup Settings page. It would display a list of options and we need to choose the option by entering the appropriate number.
4. Select number 8 which represents Disable early launch anti-malware protection.
5. Restart the system and check if it helps.
Note: This procedure might not be able to disable all third-party anti-virus software.
Solution 4: DISM command and SFC scan in recovery mode
The DISM command and SFC scan checks for missing files in the system and replaces them if possible.
1. Open Command Prompt in recovery mode once again as explained in Solution 1.
2. Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
3. Thereafter, type the following command and press Enter to run the SFC scan:
sfc /scannow

4. Restart the system.
Solution 5: Repair Corrupted Windows registry
1.Open Command Prompt in recovery mode as explained in Solution 1 for the last time.
2.Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:
copy c:\windows\system32\config\RegBack\* c:\windows\system32\config

3.Reboot your system and check it boots properly this time.
Solution 6: Identify and delete the problem file
1.Open Command Prompt in recovery mode as explained in Solution 1 for the last time.And type
cd Windows \ System32 \ LogFiles \ Srt
2. It will open a file that shows something similar to this “The boot critical file c: windows \ system32 \ drivers \ vsock.sys is corrupted”. This means that vsock.sys is a corrupted file and this causes a problem. This is just for example, you can get a different result according to your system.
3.Next we simply delete this file, which causes an error, but be careful, you should know what file you are deleting. Otherwise, you can harm even more if it turns out to be a system-specific file. Enter the command to delete the approximate vsock.sys file on the command line:
cd c: windows \ system32 \ drivers
del vsock.sys
Restart the computer and remove the application creating the problem. In the case of the vsock.sys file, it was a VMware virtual machine.
