    Can Not Open an Application

    I upgraded from Win7 Pro to Win 10 Pro and all was working as expected. I did some upgrades of programs and drivers. Currently I cannot open an application by double clicking or by any other means. Downloaded Win 10 1607 and could not start the application with a double click or any other manner.

    Sometimes Windows 10 apps won’t open due to ownership problems, you can easily fix that by change the ownership of C: drive
