    Sorry, I forgot to answer your question....yes, I have a restore point, but it was taken "before" I moved moved a lot of files and apps from my old laptop.....which took hours.

    dalchina....you have been so helpful....thank you! The suggestion to check the list of items in Shellexview with MS items filtered out, pointed me to the problem....an incomplete installation of Mozy backup! I uninstalled Mozy and the problem was resolved. Who would have thought? You are a wizard and I appreciate your assistance...this was driving me nuts.
    Thank you! Ron

    Now, before something else goes wrong...
    a. create a schedule to create a System Restore point daily.. (tutorial available)
    Whilst SR is considered unreliable, in that it can suddenly fail to complete restoring- and then perhaps work again some weeks or months later, when it works it's great- no effect on personal data.

    b. Start a routine patten of disk imaging as is endlessly recommended here. E.g. a periodic (manual or scheduled) backup job to external storage of at least all partitions comprising your O/S - 4 for UEFI typically- e.g. Macrium Reflect (free).

    - full backup and restore your PC even if your disk fails.
