  • Hi,


    This issue can be caused by third party programs. You can try testing it in Clean Boot mode.


    If the issue persists, try creating a new account:


    Create a new user account


    1. Click the Start Button, type User Accounts in the start search pane and press Enter.

    2. Click Manage use accounts. 

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

    4. Choose account type as Computer administrator.

    Hope this helps.
