    Trying to add another User from CP directs me to "Add a new user in PC Settings" which just flashes like Store.
    Also the PC Settings doing the same.

    I went through some of the basics again and somewhere along the line, the PC Settings opened.
    I think it "may" have been resetting ownership of the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT,
    making sure that "ALL APPLICATIONS PACKAGES" had the proper Permissions.

    Thanks again, Shawn, for your time and patience.
