    Your PC is busted, you need to do a clean install or just buy a new one

    Ok then. I almost want to get you to try it one more time, but I donít want to tick you off. It seems that the 2nd time is proof. You are thinking this is a joke. But nooooo. Anyway you have been very helpful already.

    No other issues to report at this time though. Itís a head scratcher.

    @Jimbo93

    The way to remove the "gremlins" from Windows 10 is to do a clean install of Windows 10.
    When you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, you bring all the baggage that Windows 7 collected.

    A clean install of Windows 10 will be just that... clean.

    I'll pass because I have 2004 and just saw it work. No, I don't think it's a joke. It's a M$$$ Easter Egg lottery you won

    I think one of the lurkers who have 20H2 should step up to bat ........ @Ghot, are you willing?

    I don't use Windows Defender at all.
    OP is chasing problems from the wrong direction.
    Start with a clean install... THEN most everything will work as it should.

    I'll second the clean install test suggestion @Ghot made. Just make a full backup of your boot drive first: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect Then you can easily restore it later.
