Did you look at the .ini files - article here.

Have you checked to see if any system files are the problem -

start - accessories - command prompt

type in

sfc/scannow

there is a space between the / and the s

Have you thought about restoring your PC back to a point when it was working ok?

had not thought about system restore and maybe that should have been my first move but got caught up with the problem, if all else fails shall try that. read the article about ini files and it's a bit over my head but not to worry. shall keep on with latest suggestions

it appears to be sorted now hopefully.

it has started as normal for two days now so will keep my fingers crossed, not sure which measure cured it as did all suggestions

my thanks to all who took the interest in my problem
