are you suggesting I need to do a clean boot and then install the Multiplicity within that environment? Because I'm not going to stay within that environment or do a full reset on my computer.
Multiplicity does not need to be uninstalled nor do you need to uninstall any other software.
The clean boot's goal is to get Windows in a state (as close as possible without a format) where only its services are running under a new Windows Admin account.
After the MP service is enabled on each and you see if you still have the issue.
If it works, no issues, something other than MP is likely the cause (3rd party app or setting) and a process of elimination can be tried. If it still happens, it does not eliminate the aforementioned, it just makes them less likely.
