      It is hard to tell, sometimes software breaks; Have you allow Windows to always update itself?

      Just as you would not want a child driving a car nor should you allow Windows to update itself because the result has been proven unsafe and reckless.

      Windows Modules Installer could have been installing whatever updates were being pushed to your computer, and even if it was under control by some method Windows may make an attempt to update itself.

      Preview patches which are offered are not always good and they are mostly not ready for production environments or home use and happily Windows will install these for you, these may have caused you grief right now.

      If you are on a wired or wireless connection setting both to metered updates will slow Windows down a little bit; if you use WUshowhide (Windows Updates Show/Hide tool) from Microsoft it can mitigate (with your diligence) Windows gluttonous desire to install everything.

      Were you doing something unusual in prep’ing for a system image?

        and have you tried doing a repair install over the top?

          I finally did a reinstall then once the dust settled, I restored all my stuff from Windoze_Old, deleted window$_Old. I ran chkdsk and then went on with my inage backup. So far all is well.
