  • 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.
