    I had the exact problem on two fresh installs. I have absolutely no explanation, but after several restarts both began working and have continued to work. If I did something to fix the problem I don't know what it was; I never ran the System File Checker. :confused:

    No help at all, but at least you know you're not alone in this.

    Nope, I did nothing. A couple of days after the Snipping tool failed to load, it started working and still does after several months now. :cool:
