    Chrome and Adobe Reader open and immediately close


    Really strange problem. Owner has Windows 10 Home.
    His first complaint was that in trying to open a pdf, it would open and immediately close. Took over the PC and he was right. Went to open Chrome and same thing happened.
    Everything else, all programs normal.
    First, ran Malwarebytes and adware removal. Nothing
    Uninstalled and reinstalled both programs. Same problem.
    Made sure all updates were done. 1909 had not been. Updated.
    Ran sfc /scannow. Said it fixed problems. Didn't fix this one.
    Ran all 3 DISM cleanups. Still there.
    Kinda running out of ideas.
    Since I'm working this remotely, I'm not about ready to do an install repair.
    Have the owner using Edge for both browsing and opening pdfs.

    May try to reset/reinstall Chrome.

    From above:

    Haven't been able to try the eula for Adobe yet.
    Noticed there is no comparable file in Chrome.
