Once again - the email you sent to me has a link to a page on the Corel site that just displays 'null' - responses to the email bounce back. It's very, very frustrating trying to respond to you people - with the constant reminder that if I don't manage the impossible, getting through to you, you'll close the support question ticket in 72 hours and so waste all the time I have had to invest in this issue.
I fixed it in the end by myself, both the issues with Corel Photopaint and Corel Videostudio, by booting the apps while holding down the F8 key to roll back to the default user space. Both apps are now working.
All that effort reinstalling apps and deleting registry entries, when cleaning the user space did it.
Maybe a first try gambit next time around.

Dear Mr McNabb,
The direct link to reply which displays Null is a known issue. You should reply by going to the support site. Other emails not coming from a support personnel is an automated one which you can just ignore.
To close this support ticket, please go to My Stuff at support.corel.com or simply do not reply to this support ticket.
Corel Customer Support
"The direct link to reply which displays Null is a known issue." - Every damn email Corel Customer Support sends to its customers from one of its laughingly titled Customer Support Representatives (you'll see from the above that he was no use at all) contains a link with the words "To access your question from our support site, click the following link or paste it into your web browser.” That link is broken, forcing you to go navigating their website to track down your issue.
And yet they continue to send the broken links out to customers!! Because, presumably, if it is a ‘known issue’ then it can’t be a ‘problem’!!!!
