    Ok. Even if the corrupted account was the original (administrator?). Should I still attempt the upgrade? Thanks.

    Exactly what do you mean by " original " administrator ?
    There are 2 types of administrator accounts............
    1. Windows 10 own built-in Admin account. It comes with the operating system.
    2. Your own user/admin account which you created when you installed Windows 10.

    Which one of the above 2 are you referring to ?

    If you meant the 2nd one, your own user/admin account you created.......................
    Create a new admin account > logon to it.
    Use it for a few days. If no issues at all, delete the corrupted admin account.

    If that works, then there is no need to do the Repair Install at all.

    I also created a new user account and within 2 minutes, the problems started there as well.

    If that is the case, then go ahead and do your Repair Install.

    As I had said, create a new admin account and logon to it.
    If the same problems persist in the new admin account, then it's time to do a Repair Install.

    I am a bit bewildered.

    You said on post #9.........................
    I just realized that on a separate profile on this laptop, I don't have this problem.

    But now, you said you created a new user account and you continued to have the same problem ?

    The 2 statements appear to be contradictory.

    Anyway, go ahead and do what you have planned to do.
    Good luck.
