    Corrupt User Logon Windows 10 (Pro)

    I will describe the symptoms and solution. I can only guess at the cause.

    Your normal everyday logon fails to function properly after a reboot and/or cold bootup.
    · Cortana fails
    · File Explorer fails to launch fully
    · Desktop Browsers will not launch (except Edge still works)
    · Task Manager fails to launch
    · Many applications fail to launch (not all, paint, notepad and others still work.)
    · You cannot logoff
    · You cannot shut down
    · You cannot reboot
    Sound horrible doesn’t it. But it is all tied to one logon. Everything works just fine if you logon under a different user.

    Logon under a differentuser ID
    (if you never built one, search for “enable the hidden Windows 10 administrator account”)
    Using File explorer from within the other account browse to the broken account Desktop folder
    (C:\Users\<broken account>\Desktop)
    Movefiles and folders off the desktop to anywhere else you choose
    MOVE (that is CUT &PASTE somewhere else)

    Apparently there issome upper limit on the amount that can be stored on the desktop
