To anyone coming here to find a fix for the issue:
I believe the issue came from screwed up Windows 10 permissions. I had messed with them a few months prior and I must have messed something up and just now had repercussions.
I ended up re-fomatting my drive because upon attempting to correct the permissions to fix the issue, things started breaking, like my Start Menu and Taskbar.
After re-formatting (the first time), I tried to modify my user account to not require a password on login. It broke the Start Menu and the Taskbar...
After the second re-format, I didn't even think about touching permissions or user accounts. Everything is set up and nearly identical, and everything works perfectly.
So lesson learned: Don't mess with Windows Permissions, don't use CMD commands such as TakeOwn and ICACLS, and don't modify your user accounts.
