I suspect it may have something to do with Anvi Smart Defender. I have tried to uninstall this and although it uninstalls correctly it re-installs itself after reboot.

Any advice much appreciated - If it gets too desperate I will just do a re install of windows, although its a lot of work.

Many thanks for your time and expertise in this matter

Best Regards

It's been tried Bill.
