There's currently an issue where some virus programs (namely AVG and AVAST) are blocking the user folder.
There are several symptoms currently for this issue
To solve this you need to add the following files as an exception to your Antivirus Program (see instructions for your particular program on how to do this).
Pathes may vary depending on your installation.
Both Avast/AVG have sections for Ransomware. You need to add it there. Please see instructions here: Add Exceptions to Anti Virus Programs
If you are using Windows Defender, the Ransomware settings have similar effects.
Details on how to solve this here: Windows 10 Defender – Controlled Folder Access
If this doesn't help, try deleting your cache files: Delete Cache Files and move options.ini to the desktop.
If you have further issues, please state which program your using in your post.
