Anaconda 3 Navigator Not Opening


I have installed Anaconda 3 on my computer and it will not open the navigator or let me run any of the programs, such as Jupyter Notebooks or Spyder. When I click on the Navigator app it briefly opens two black screens and then closes and then doesn't do anything. If I try to run it from the command prompt it gives me the following error.


WARNING: The conda.compat module is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: cannot import name 'HTTPSHandler' from 'six.moves.urllib.request' (unknown location)

I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall many times and I attempted to manually install an SSL package because some people suggested this worked for them.

Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I just had to move some files within anaconda3 installation folder from one path to another.

Navigate to %ANACONDA_HOME%\Library\bin, there you will find the files listed below

libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll libcrypto-1_1-x64.pdb libssl-1_1-x64.dll libssl-1_1-x64.pdb So, just move them to this path: %ANACONDA_HOME%\DLLs

Give it a try one more time and you will be able to run it.
