Thanks Eric99 for your help on this! Your suggestion worked and Evernote reads clear as ever. One last step I had to do, not mentioned, was to reboot my computer to apply the changes. Also, an additional note... a user may not have the Evernote icon on the desktop to right-click (as described in the instructions). If this is the case for you, you can find the Evernote icon in Programs folder. The breadcrumb for where I found it on my computer is below... c:drive > Program Files (x86) > Evernote > Evernote > (program icon found here) Evernote needs to know this update was completely unsat, amatuer-hour. Was it not tested prior to release? Although the fix is realitively easy, it should've been worked out before the update was released - at least acknowledge the problem is possible and provide documentation on how to troubleshoot the issue.
