I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Uninstall Office, restart, and then reinstall Office and patch. Test after this.

2. Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test.

Thanks John, uninstall & reinstall did not work.  Changed the Profile name to .old and logged in with a new profile, same problem.

What operating system?  You may need to try a Repair Install.

Also I see you are using Office 64-bit. Do you have any 32-bit processes like Java or Adobe interacting?

Repair and reboot did not resolve the issue

Can you try Office 32-bit and see if that works. Most of us use Office 32-bit and it works fine with Windows 10 V1709.

The 32 bit version seems to be working.  I'm going to keep this open for a few hours and if the user does not have any more issues, I will assign the rewards to you.
Thanks for your assistance.
