  • Hello,

    Suggest you to run System File Checker scan:

    1. Search for 'command prompt' using Cortana or Windows Search.

    2. From results, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

    3. Type sfc /scannow command and press Enter key.

    4. Let the command complete and then reboot the machine.

    If issue still persists, perform clean boot:

  • Hi,

    You can try to lower your UAC. Type UAC in search bar, and  open Change User Accounting Control Settings, set the bar to the lowest.

    And restart your computer to see if this works for you.

    If this not working for you, please refer to the following link,
