    Create new user, no desktop or taskbar

    Hi. I'm running W10 pro 64 bit, had Creators Update, ver 10.0.15063. When I create a new user, either using a Microsoft account, or not, when I first log in to as that new user, it takes a very long time, I see the rotating circle of dots, then that goes and I get a black screen with just the mouse cursor visible. I can move it about. If I do Ctrl-Alt-Delete I can select Task Manager and from there start applications such as a command prompt, Firefox, etc. If I elevate the prompt I can stop and start Explorer but that still doesn't give me a desktop. I have tried copying the Users\Default folder from another W10 pro 64 bit system, but I still get the same result. The two existing users are working fine. Any ideas?

    Update - copied ntuser.dat from a working user's folder into default; now able to create new users and log them in.
