I found a video on Youtube, which seems to be from older versions of windows and change permissions for full control to delete the narrator file from windows. I did not put the link, not sure if I can or should. Easy to find with a quick search. I delete the app file, and it should be good now. If it doe snot work I will come back and change this from solved to not solved. Thanx... (I was so frustrated when this narrator took over... )
