|Am currently NOT on my laptop, where the problem was, but on my PC.|
Have run ADWCleaner and Junkware Removal tool. There were a few problems that were repaired. I wanted to paste the results in this conversation on my laptop, but could not even get into my Gmail , nor my outlook account with either Firefox nor IE.
The history of my laptop is, it came with Windows 8.1 installed. Upgraded to Win 10, but couldn't get into it, so decided to delete the lot and install my win 7 with which I have been comforatble with. I did not succeed, so asked my PC shop to do this for me. They succeeded and I asked how they had done it. I had overlooked that my Win 7 DVD was an upgrade version. I could have provided an original Vista CD. At 82 maybe Alzheimer light played a part.
Now I have given up and am installing Win 10 again, as Microsoft is pushing it more and more aggresively and set myself to get into this interface. I need a well functioning laptop when I have to work in Ethiopia, where the internet, nor the electricity are not all that dependable.
I thank RIIDER, T-R-A, Fingers and especially Johnw for their valued help. Willem 1933
