    @MSRadell:

    Does the name on the login screen, that you sign in with, coincide with the name of your user folder?
    Yes it does and everything else works fine.

    Modern Apps such as Edge do not work with an Admin account when UAC has been disabled. This is by design.
    Enable UAC and see if that solves the problem.

    I'm not sure how UAC got completely turned off, I had to go back into the security policies to reauthorize it.
