What's really F'd up is certain crypto algos built into Windows ARE certified FIPS 140, but the managed implementations in .NET of the very same algos are NOT. W T F??? Can you guess why Roslyn doesn't work under FIPS?

My first thought was that Windows decided it couldn't load your user profile anymore and created a new/temporary one, but if that were the case, I get the impression you wouldn't have triggered the Remove/Repair dialog.
Besides, with a new profile, you would also have found your docs/pics/videos/etc folders to also be empty, so I'm guessing that wasn't the case here...
Update 1 really messed up my Visual Studio 2015 installation.
Update 2 seems to work for me.
I hear lots of Win 10 problems, I hear about lots of VS2015 problems and I've encountered them. That IE and Bing have problems has been known for a while. I haven't heard a lot about Edge, probably because no one is using it.
Makes me want to stick to this here Win 7 computer, the last awesome OS
I have a computer I need to reinstall the OS so that I can install a working version of Visual Studio. Had a bunch of third party control stuff on it, and it broke visual studio when I removed them. Hate 3rd party controls.
