    Workin on it.

    The PC is one I built myself from components from various sources (Skylake). I had another problem with the pc that wouldn't go away even with a Windows refresh. So I did a clean install and now the pc works great. I can only guess it was a corrupted Windows 10 problem.

    Has Internet explorer been nobbled ?
