Hi guys, would really appreciate some help with this. My go to art program - after all these yeare - is still PSP4. It's a program that I rely on and see no reason to change as it does what I need and fast.(Unlike later versions of same program). Anyway, after installing the creators update today, I have an odd issue.  PSP 4 works ok for a couple of times or so, but after that, just stops working. 


Clicking on the icon, it does (as it always has) go to the UAC permission screen, but then after clicking ok, nothing happens?? Would really appreciate any help. 


Not techy really, but I think this would be the event log required?

My brother had problems with some of the old software he prefers, originally ran on a XP system. Worked OK on Windows 7 but not on Windows 10, so I setup a virtual XP for him using Oracle Virtual Box and installed the programs he wanted there and they run fine.
