    Hello there mate!

    You could check the Event Viewer (Windows Log -> Application) and check for any error especially the time stamp matches the time of install.

    Since it's works fine on a new User profile it's hard to pin point the issue. Let's run a security scan using Malwarebytes just to be sure.

    See if any leftovers are causing your inability to reinstall

    I thought I had deleted all the files but I just searched "github" on my c drive and found a lot more files. I deleted them all and tried installing again and it worked!

    I wish I could give you a big huge right now!

    Thanks a lot A Guy!

    I appreciate the help Capt! But A Guy's method turned out to be what I needed! Thanks a lot still.
