didn't work, so I am grabbing the dvd and gonna do a repair install of win 10
new version is, surprisingly, a bit faster...Have you considered create a new user account or erase your current user profile?
To this point you are running out of options.
P.S. How is running the new version on your PC, same problems?
reg query HKCU\Environment /v Path echo %path%

no compatibility mode makes any difference and UAC is turned off. Nothing gets installed without my ok, plus malwarebyte catches websites realtime, as well as avast catching websites and files... (And yes I have disabled them to make sure they were not the problem) My system is secure so no need for UAC and the issues it causesThat's disappointing. I really had hoped that this would produce an effect... even errors...
WinXP compatibility make a difference? UAC is really working?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control#FeaturesUAC attempts to alleviate this using File and Registry Virtualization, which redirects writes (and subsequent reads) to a per-user location within the user's profile. For example, if an application attempts to write to a directory such as "C:\Program Files\appname\settings.ini" to which the user does not have write permission, the write will be redirected to "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\appname\settings.ini". The redirection feature is only provided for non-elevated 32-bit applications, and only if they do not include a manifest that requests specific privileges.
amazing isn't it??..lol now you see my frustration.. I can usually suss out an answer to stuff like this, but this simply boggles the mind... something, be it a service running (Or not running) survived the repair install and is interfering... OR...it's a registry setting thats mugged up. Would explain the admin account working since it is a different registry...hmmmm... wonder if they make a program that can compare to reg files and list the differences...hmmmI'm speechless... literally (nervous laugh & DS3 collapse gesture)
