Yes looks good give that a try.
Recreating the profile should fix the issue.

I faced that same issue, I checked the service and it was running properly. It was just one user that was affected, not  every user. That indicated that it was a profile specific issue not the service. I am not sure if this is also happening to you.

I made a backup of Favorites, Documents, and all the important things for the users. Deleted old profile, created a new one, then  I moved those files back to the new profile and user was happy.

Im cloning the HDD so I can fall back on it.

Will go in with an axe when thats done knowing I can make a dogs dinner of it and revert back to the orig.

Will see what happens

It was impossible to create another profile.
Restore was unchecked - there were no profiles.

This did the job
