    How to Repair a User Profile?


    I've just updated to Windows 10. I'm having problems with some Apps (e.g. Kindle & Get Started) in my main user account but not other accounts. I've run the Store Troubleshooter, Update Troubleshooter and sfc /scannow which runs OK.

    I suspect there is a minor problem with the user profile. Is there a method of troubleshooting / resetting the user profile? I know I could just create a new account and copy all the files over.

    The best way is to do a Wds clean install ..:

    I would rather fix this simple problem than doing a full clean install.
