    64-bit Windows 10

    In that case, you might consider to refresh or reset Windows 8.

    Windows 8

    I created a new user account. This is probably a dumb question but is there a way to move all the files from the User Account that's having problems to the new one? The new one seems to be working correctly.

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center

    Just a thought on the account that is not working correctly.
    You could log into it & run sfc /scannow in administrator command prompt.

    Click image for larger version

    When it gets done run -

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    in administrator command prompt - (takes up to an hour to finish)

    Click image for larger version

    Then restart & run sfc /scannow again.

    Doing these scans might fix it.
    Or not.
    It's worth trying.

Modify User Login List
By default Windows 8 displays the list of users on the login page with a big fake image and then scrolls right for the full list. I'm guessing most people have only a couple of users so don't have an issue, but my computer has 6 users and I have to scroll right to get to the last two. I'd prefer...
