    Thanks!
    That is my plan.
    I do make periodic system images to an external drive, but the last one I made was the one I just did the repair on.
    I'll be sure to make a system image from this new install.

    I was trying to avoid having to do the in-place upgrade, but nothing I did seemed to do any good.
    Things seem to be back to "normal" now and I thank all of you, that gave their time to help with this issue.
    That option is the only one that will save your apps and data. And clean/fix all the baddies. It's worth the time.

    Use a disk imaging program that creates an image of all your windows partitions, and allows you to update it quickly.

    (Macrium, SSD, USB3- a differential image in under 12 mins if I recall).

    Yes I agree.
    All the time I spent trying to fix this issue myself, I could have spent doing the in-place upgrade instead.
    The deeper I went into trying to fix this issue, the crazier it became.
    All signs were pointing to the in-place upgrade, but I couldn't, or didn't want to see the forest for the trees.
    Live and learn.

    Thanks!
    I'm familiar with Macrium Reflect and will us it, in place of the Windows Built-in system image creator, which is what I was using.

    That's good, because MS is dropping their Built-in (SIB) in the Fall Creators Update.
