    Well I guess I can mark this solved. As I've said before; it amazes me that this issue hasn't arisen prior to now. One thing that really had me stumped at the beginning and being sure the problem wasn't on my computers was my using Acronis True Image and restoring an image from well before these interruptions started. I hadn't taken into consideration setting in the cloud i.e. Google.
    Oh well, thanks again JDS63 for all your input.

    So you are saying for sure it was caused by the Chrome extension from Netflix and it's buffer ? New one for me, guess i even learned something from this experience. Oh, make System Restore points too.

    As i am not familiar with Netflix, Chrome or even cloud storage, because these things i do not use and have not come to help someone with a similar issue here or anywhere. Hope it is fixed, your are most welcome, again !!

    No I'm not saying that for sure. Google Chrome has a "Better Flix" extension for Netflix and I'm saying that extenson may (emphasize may) be the cause. I am sure it is a Google extexnsion of which I had maybe too many. I have disabled most of the extensions on Chrome and the RFI's have ceased. However I am now using Firefox for a while.

    Hello JDS. Well I finally got the courage up to test my theory and sure enough; got the RFI. It's "Better Flix"Click image for larger version

    Hiya! Just a thought: Have you tried checking to see if it's not your microphone that's picking up the radio station? It really sounds like it could be that, as I once had a microphone on my old laptop that was just a SingStar mic (as I didn't know I had an inbuilt mic until ages later), which kept picking up a radio station but only at certain times. It could be that?


    If this doesn't solve it, really hope you find a solution soon

    It's marked as solved. A Chrome extension for Netflix "Better Flix" is the culprit as in my last post,

    No sweat; maybe my wording wasn't that explicit. It would be interesting for someone else to try the extension and see if they get the interference.
