Hey @bradthompsonedcc, Thanks a lot for coming back and sharing what worked for you with the community! We’re looking forward to seeing you around!

I am glad this worked for so many people. I hadn’t looked at the posts. I had untagged the question after I figured out the answer. Thanks AndreaGriffiths11 for the explicit tag so I found the thread.

It worked like a charm, Thanks :)

It turned out that I had old session state:

  1. Open Control Panel from the Start menu
  2. Select User Accounts
  3. Select “Manage your credentials” in the left hand menu
  4. Delete any credentials related to Git or GitHub


Once I did this, it started working again.

Thanks, It helps :slight_smile:
