unko,

As a test, create a new administrator account and log in to it, then see how they behave in the new account to see if it's a system wide issue or just one in your original account.

I would have to reinstall all apps for the new user? Wouldn't be surprising if it was user account issue.

no, most apps should install in C:\Program files\ OR C:\Program Files x86\
all you would have to do is make new shortcuts to your desktop
