    Sounds like it's time to reinstall Windows.

    I deleted the account 'bofhlusr outlookcom' and created a new account 'admin'.

    Thank you for taking the time to help me. Much appreciated.

    Sorry you had to delete the old account to get there.

    Thanks.

    Every day is a school day. I learned that the Control Panel 'User Account' procedure is different from simply entering 'users' in the Windows search bar. The resulting menu trees, choices, and breadcrumbs are totally different in each.
