    You'll want to select what you want to keep during the repair install.

    I would recommend to back up anything that you do not want to lose to be on the safe side though.

    Some more searching has led me to the answer that a clean install or a transplant of Default folder are the only successful solutions... (Windows 10 Signin Error - Microsoft Community
    Windows 10 - The User Profile Service failed the sign-in User Profile - Microsoft Community)

    It's looking more and more like I will have to go through a clean install and re-install a lot of software.
