Hey Monia13,


When you downloaded the Fix It did you also Run/Open it?

Did the Fix It complete correctly or did it provide any information when it finished?


Let’s also test to see if a new user profile has the same problems as the ones you are experiencing. To do this follow the first portion of steps provided in this troubleshooting guide:

Fix a corrupted user profile


Then log into the newly created user profile and test to see if the same problems occur. If not, the next step will be to follow the remaining steps of the above troubleshooting guide to transfer the user data from the old user profile to the new user profile.


Look forward to hearing back from you.
