And if you change user it works perfectly well from that computer?

I suggest it has absolutely nothing to do with Scribus, but all to do
with the upgrade you did. I am not familiar with Windows stuff, but it
sounds to me as though you have done something to the user that stops
it from accessing the system.

If the "other user" works ok, would it be possible to back up all
"fawlty users" data, create new user, check that Scribus works, remove
"Fawlty user" and then create ne "Non_Fawlty user"

Nothing to do with Scribus IMHO
