    The latest update causes my screen to be unusable except for CTL ALT DEl to restart. I used Shift Restart to uninstall the update but it will not accept any password I can recall or the latest correct password. Basically the update has rendered my laptop useless.

    Right-click on shortcuts and .exe's causes screen to blink + no menu


    Hi - Bizzarro problem with Windows 10. Help appreciated!

    In any account, including Administrator ones AND the Administrator account:

    • If I right-click a desktop shortcut, the screen blinks black. No sign of the context menu.
    • If I locate an .exe in its folder and right-click that, the screen blinks black. The folder closes. No context menu.

    Related, perhaps:
    • In a Standard account, if I try to turn down the UAC settings (so my son can use Steam without me logging him in each time), the Windows accepts my administrator password, then ignores my changes.


    Notes
    • I have recorded the blink and played it back frame by frame. No message or anything appears. The screen merely goes black.
    • Windows 10 otherwise seems to work fine.
    • I have done virus scans etc.

    All this makes it very hard to set up Standard accounts that are any use. Any help would be appreciated.
