both the programs you mentioned lve paid for and have installed on multiple systems (even this one obviously.. tho that was on my previous format) so l doubt they would cause my current issues.

regardless lve run both tools as requested, l did accidentally mess up with the first file so had to run it again as l uninstalled it before trying to upload the files.
