    Ok, In that case, it's most likely an issue with what you have the PATH environmental variable set to. Double check to make sure that you have it's value set to this below.

    Code:
    %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

    Try copy & pasting
    Code:
    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:MicrosoftWindowsPowerShellRootdism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell/all  
    
    into the command prompt and then reboot Windows to repair powershell.

    I can't tell you how much I appreciate the final "fix" for my Change PC Settings problem. I went to many other Google hits trying to fix it and finally, came here. The Command Prompt option worked like a champ. It's not as if you can't go to Change PC Settings in other ways...it's that I can't stand something not working right on my computers. Thanks so much...you are awesome!!!
