Windows 10: [W10/1703] Clean Install, File Explorer pins Not launching and others

  1.    07 May 2017 #1

    [W10/1703] Clean Install, Rundll32 UAC Prompt

    ...and most items from the taskbar context menu (from programs) mainly File Explorer.

    I'm also having the DISM issue like most 1703-ers.

    Initially I updated to 1703 from 16xx and programs I was previously using began to fail so I rolled back, and was met with a corrupted user profile (blank User image on logon).

    Finally the weekend so I decided to Clean Install Windows 10 using the Media Creation Install, and now I'm on the 3rd re-clean install and :

    - File Explorer is only opening as 1 instance, cannot open another.
    - Cannot open any pinned items from the Taskbar > R.Click File Explorer > choose one of the pinned items, or File Explorer, nothing opens.
    - Discovered the DISM issue trying to fix the above. [fixed, did not fix the above, hence this thread creation]
    - Any program that requires to be run through rundll32.exe, requires a UAC prompt, quiet annoying. (ex: volume control, playback devices, startup and others)

    Thank you in advance.

    Issue fixed.
    Apparently this (Problems,1,2,4) were being caused by Gigabyte's App Center, I was previously told to reinstall drivers using the APP Center so that it installs drivers for my specific motherboard, I was having driver issues previously, I mixed that in when I made a clean reinstall using an iso of Windows 10 1607 (from "google").
    Tried for the last time yesterday without installing APP Center, and so far everything's updated for 1607, I do not really wanna test 1703/ Creator's Update, I'm still hearing people with issues from it.

    I have no idea what happened, left my PC on overnight went to work, and now I'm home and I get a UAC Prompt when I try to R.Click Volume Control for Playback Devices...

    Was there some stealth Windows Update? I looked but nothing new was added to the Updates Installed list.
