    Hi Richard,

    Looking into this, I see a lot of people are having the same problem.
    Everyone seems to have little workarounds that work for some.... but no definitive answer.
    Most seem to agree that removing the Fall Creators Update solved the problem.
    It's something to consider...

    Thanks, after a bot of searching online, it would appear that there is no fix.
    what is it with updates that make things worse??

    And its all back working again - now the pesky updates has been rolled back
    Does anyone at Microsoft pay any attention to the feedback left ( ie why do you want to roll back/un install)?
    and the next thing to look for is how to stop the thing form updating

    It's not quite as simple as that with Win10.
    There is no way to turn off the updates if you are running Win10 Home
    If you have Win10 Pro you can defer the updates for 7 days.... but that's as good as it gets I'm afraid.
