    I've tried that. but I get all kinds of information, most of it unhelpful. It often says the update does not play well with some esoteric program that I don't use.

    AS an aside, I use the free version of Reflect and I am very satisfied. Somebody mentioned paying for the premium version. What features does this add?

    I'm a bit hesitant to d/l software to get rid of the issue. I gather others have used the software with good results?

    Anyway, the other day, all of a sudden, he found W10 on his machine. He is used to W7. He...

    Oh, eventually Microsoft will cease to support W7 (my guess is that is 2-3 years away). Eventually, we will all migrate to W10 and then there will be a W11 to cause us more grief in the...

    Sometimes I've had success just going into DOS (command prompt) and using the del command.

    eg: say file JOE located in folder MOVE

    cmd
    cd \move
    del "joe"
