when you want to start completely fresh, you need to remove the personal data and configuration files of the crypto engine (GnuPG).
Usually this is under %APPDATA%\gnupg , just move it away.
The advanced way (for technicians) is to use the command line and see what the problem is, maybe there are still remains of the first key-pair.

The GPGME library returned an unexpected
error at gpafiledecryptop.c:538. The error was:
No secret key
This is either an installation problem or a bug in GPA.
GPA will now try to recover from this error.
I hope you can help. I installed GPA and decrypted my 1st message ok. I made a mistake by using an active email address linked to that key so to be safe, I decided to delete that key and start fresh.
Now when I try and decrypt any message I get the error message above. I have uninstalled, reinstalled switched to Kleopatra and even system restalled but still get the same error message.
Can anyone give me a newbie step by step process to fix this? I like using GPA as I find it easy to navigate.
Thanks for any help
