    I have awesome anti virus protection & also use a VPN/Proxy, so never had a problem- I also only use 'verified' torrents. This actually happened before I tried to DL the torrents (patches) I needed, I noticed it when I tried to listen to a podcast & couldn't stream it (the link automatically opens it in a new window), then couldn't DL it, then tried to DL the torrent files & that was a nightmare, then stopped working as well, which is when I noticed I couldn't save any files at all.

    You probably have a recovery partition in the computer to restore to original factory settings. You may find out by going to the manufacturers site on how to proceed. If we know the computer make and model we could guide you to the proper site if you are unable to do so yourself.

    Thanks so much for that, I'll get familiar with it so in the event I need it, I have it tucked away in my brain

    Well it looks like the problem has been resolved, without me having to anything- The action center finally popped up with the 'driver errors found. Click to repair' message, I did & bingo, no problems since- YAY!
    Would have saved me some grey hairs had action center noticed the problems yesterday, but better late then never I guess
    Thanks for all the suggestions & help, it's much appreciated
