I have to re download and fix the oculus software every time I turn off the computer, I've tried removing the headset first and adding it back but says sensors can't be sensed or whatever, and fixing the software in apps and features is the only thing I can do atm to fix it is extremely annoying, FYI I also cut power to pc once it is turned off (not my choice) so don't know if loss of power to the rift would cause these issues also. Headset works fine had no issues originally but ever since turning my computer of im having these issues, any ideas how i can quickly reinstall instead of downloading or any other fixes like saving an instance of the working oculus software

I'd recommend to directly state if you got the Rift-S or CV1, right now the OP is indirectly stating it's the CV1, although I have my doubts...

Also state the components of the rig used and the os, or such threads are an annoying waste of time. It's like writing: "Help me, my hmd is not working".

Ok, at least your rig looks fine - and you're using Win10 etc. If you're using the lastest Nvidia drivers, you could try to downgrade - but it's a long-shot. Also check that your motherboard is using the latest bios and latest motherboard drivers (especially USB drivers). Maybe try to opt into the beta (PTC) Oculus software if you haven't already. 

Might be an usb issue, but I'm just guessing (you're not the first to have issues with that motherboard: https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/threads/upgrade-advice-for-vr-gaming-oculus-rift-s.18872151/ ).
