  • Hi,

     

    I suggest that you create a new user profile, and then check if the issue occurs.

     

    Create a new user account

    ====================

    1. Click the Start Button, and then click Control Panel. 

    2. Click Classic View in left panel. 

    3. Double-click User Accounts.

    4. Click Manage another use account.  

    5. Click Create a new account, and type the name.

    6. Choose account type as Computer administrator.

    7. Click Create Account.

    8. Log off and log on with the new account.

     

    If the issue does not occur, use this profile instead of the problematic one. Follow the steps below to transfer personal data.

     

    Transfer user profile

    ===============

    1. Log on as the new user account (make sure the new user account has administrator privilege).

    2. Click the Start menu, and click Computer.

    3. Click the Organize button on the left top corner and choose Folder and Search Options.

    4. Under View tab, check the "Show hidden files and folders" box and click OK to save settings.

    5. Navigate to the C:\Users\(old user name) folder.

     

    Note: The "old user name" refers to the user name of your old account. For example, if the user name of your old account is "Larry", the folder should be C:\Users\Larry.

     

    5. Copy all files and folders in the C:\Users\(old user name) folder to the C:\Users\(new user name) folder.

     

    Note: To copy all files, we can press Ctrl+A, and then Ctrl+C in the C:\Users\(old user name) folder. After that, navigate to the C:\Users\(new user name) folder, click Ctrl+V. Replace them with the new files.
