    I had a same problem and since I spent a whole day solving it, I thought it would be nice to share my solution with you.
    Steps :
    1. Login to you local account ( Start menu > Your account picture > Sign in with a local account )
    2. Login to your local account and open your system drive ( Usually C)
    3. Right click on "Users" > Properties > Security tab and then click on "Edit"
    4. Under "Group or user names" select Users(your PC name\Users)
    5. Permissions for Users > Full Control > Check "Allow" then hit Apply

    Make sure that Authenticated Users, System and Administrators have a Full control !!!

    Note :
    I've tried almost all off the steps from previous posts, so probably something of it deserves a credit.

    IMPORTANT : I also couldn't add my gmail account to default Mail App and finally after the process I described I was able to login also :)

    I hope I saved you some time :)

    gretsar - I would be carefull doing that - you may compromise your security. I too had problems with Edge and photo apps.
    I did discover, quite by accident, some new releases of VPN and products such as Trustee Endpoint Protection will stop Edge working ( it just kept closing) . I dont know why. So know for me, if I want to use Edge, I must stop Trustee Endpoint Protection and restart it if I want to do online banking (I have to use Firefox). Pathetique isnt it!!!

    When it opens try hitting Ctrl+t rapidly to open new tab. It works if the problem caused by a corrupted start page.
