Before you start re-installing Windows - create a new local user account, login to the new user account and see if the problem exists in a new user account. If the problem goes away, then it is the old user account that is corrupted, not the Windows installation.
davidhk "Please do post back the result."
Unfortunately "upgrade to repair install outlined in the guide seen at Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums ' did Not solve the problem
I have burned the New ISO to a DVD and can do a complete Clean Install .
If I'm having this Problem it is possible that there are other "Problems" that have not yet shown up . Opinion ?
[QUOTE=davidhk You were given an advice to create a new user account to check if the old account is corrupted or not. Post #12.
Suggest that you heed the advice. [/QUOTE]
I did heed the advice.
What is my Next step ?
I'm going for my daily bike ride be back in about 2 hours . Rick
.........I created a "New Account" and When I Right Click on Programs and Features it Opens like it should to the Control Panel.............
LEFT click at programs and Feature will suffice.
Your initial question was .........................
"Nothing appears to happen for example if I click on Programs and Features [ it does Not open the Control Panel ] or none of the other listed Items open anything."
So now, Control Panel Home is opened and you have Programs and Features.
So, what is the problem ?
Sorry, you lost me.
In My New account if I Right click (Windows Icon on the Taskbar) the list of items opens , and for example if I click on Programs and Features it Does open the Control Panel .
It appears that my Original Account may be corrupt .
Now that you've concluded that your old account is corrupted, backup any personal files you want to keep, then delete the corrupt account.
I always tell people under this situation that they will have to reinstall all their 3rd party programs.
Someone once said I did not have to do that. But I don't know a better way.
You can keep your same Microsoft Account login, if you are using MS Account login. Convert you old user account to a local account to disassociate the MS Account login with it. Convert your new user account to a MS Account login and assign it your existing MS Account. Then copy over your personal files you want to keep and delete the old user account that you converted to a local account.
This will have no affect on any user accounts you might have on other computers.
A clean install of Windows 10 would fix the problem too, but not because Windows itself was fixed, it would be because a clean install would also delete the old corrupted user account.
