    Paint 3D crashes after opening, but my computer doesn't list it as installed


    Hi,
    I have been trying to get Paint 3D to work for a few days. I can usually run it for about 10 seconds, draw a few lines, and then it crashes without any error message. I've tried every solution I've found online and none have worked so far. Here's what I have tried:

    Restarting my computer
    Updating Windows
    Force quitting Paint 3D
    Using command prompt or powershell to run the /sfc scannow command no corrupted files were found
    Using powershell to run many variations of the "Get-AppXPackage Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xml"}" command any command including AppXPackage returns the same error message that "Get-AppxPackage : The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it."
    Uninstalling Paint 3D in Apps and Features it is not listed as installed on any drive
    Uninstalling Paint 3D by right clicking on it from Windows Search it says "Uninstalling..." but nothing ever happens
    Checking for Paint 3D updates in the Windows Store there is an update listed but trying to install it returns an error message about Windows Update being disabled, to fix this I tried updating Windows and running the Windows Update troubleshooter, neither of which did anything
    Deleting all Paint-related folders within WindowsApps it says I don't have permission to delete those folders

    Fingers crossed somebody has an actual solution that is not one I've already listed, or that somebody has advice on how to make those previous solutions actually work. Do I just have Schrodinger's Installation of Paint 3D??

    Thank you,
