create a new user account as Administrator, switch into it and verify the status.
if it was okay then copy all your old user data onto new user.

                                                            * * * * *

Open a command prompt as admin and type:
SFC /SCANNOW
Hit Enter

When finished, make sure you are connected to the internet and type:
DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
Hit Enter.

                                                                * * * * *

if none of the above fixed the problem then try  Windows 10  Repair Install with an In-place Upgrade.

Tom Cieslick's solution worked like a charm.  However I'm keeping all the other suggestions, for "you never know" situations.

And my suggestion was hard to understand, I guess?

McKnife,

My apologies.  I completely missed it.  I was scrolling from the bottom and my attention was attracted by the next solution.  You should get credit for this too.  Perhaps they can fix this.  My mistake,

Yes, I think McKnife should get points or we should split points between us.
