Glad I could help with your driver issue. I don't have experience with the second one. But I googled the problem and seems many others have shared your pain.

One thing to try (worked for some): Disconnect from the internet, disable your anti-virus real-time protection. Then try it again.

If that doesn't help you're best to create a new thread. Hope you get that problem fixed too!
Thanks for the advice and of course your help!

This is driving me mad and I need a break from things so I will mark this a solved, have a break and a good think before my next step, which may of course be starting a new thread.

Thanks again
