  1. Click your Start Orb
  2. Type the letters "cmd" into your Start Search
  3. When you see the CMD icon, Press and Hold Ctrl + Shift, and Click the CMD icon
    • Holding CTRL + Shift and Clicking an icon will open it as Administrator
  4. Type in the following: sfc /scannow
  5. Press {Enter} and let it check your system files
    • This may take Hours to complete
  6. Restart your computer, then try again.
If the problem still exists, your Copy of Windows might be "pooched" metaphorically speaking.
