Hi Nancee,

have you tried using system recovery and set your PC back to a point where it was working well?:

Control Panel > Recovery > Open System Restore: :):):)

Hi Nancee,

if you have everything backed up on a USB stick or other storage device (docs, pics etc), I would do a fresh complete install, if files are corrupted from the back-up image you used, it would most likely be easier to fix your problem. :):):)

Try this:
unhide the hidden and system files, in the File explorer, then open the "AppData\Local\Microsoft\Credentials" folder under (under your username in the "Users" folder.
Check the ownership of files in the directory in the advanced security settings, under the Properties window.
If you are not listed as the owner of the files on the "Owner" tab, then edit the ownership of each file the proper owner.
