Thanks for reply, yes it was that site and I did message them - they said it was false positive.
Anyway I am still using Classic Shell which is discontinued but replaced by Open Shell which I've downloaded but not installed yet.
I think StartMenu X is not free so I'll probably not be using it...
Thanks again erpster4 but, as I replied before, the problem has righted itself somehow.
So I am loath to install any new driver, especially one not listed for my machine.
My browsers are always up to date.
I shall stop watching this thread now.
(No forum title for video so hope this is the right one.)
Everytime I play a video it takes over 2 minutes to start, began to happen a few weeks ago but previously OK.
This is when playing my own videos (avi, mp4 or wmv) with either WMP or VLC.

Just found out in another forum that there's a right click context menu option 'Command Line' on Start-up Impact in Task Manager which shows the path.

But that location does not actually exist!
I did try that program but uninstalled...
