The troubleshooter would have appeared on your desktop.
it would have shown what was fixed / what was not. indicated by either tick/X.
there may also have been a details option with a down arrow, click on it.

rerun it again and post both the first screen and the details if available.

the above is the 1st request and the 2nd?? instruction.
