Windows 7: Randomly can't access dating site "Plenty of Fish"

Randomly can't access dating site "Plenty of Fish"

Win 7 home 64 bit. I have an account on the dating site "Plenty of Fish". About half the time I try to initially log on, usually after the PC has been running for awhile, I can't connect to the site w/o a reboot. Once I am logged on & access is established, if I walk away for a time (still logged in) and then try to access a page there, I frequently can't do so w/o again rebooting. I have a win 10 machine on this same cable internet (both hard wired to the same router), which can access the page with no trouble, even when the 7 machine is unable to, no reboot issues. What might account for the 7 machine behaving this way on this ONE site. It doesn't do it on any other sites.

TIA

Fred

ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
NB If anyone who has Kaspersky as their security they may find it will not like ADW running and to stop the nagging just temporarily disbale the Kaspersky while one runs ADW
NB the sfc is often said to be best rub for three consecutive runs.

Yes mate a good start because dating sites are a favourite target of malware and adware etc etc plus the two initial scans will sort out the OS filing system if there are things out of whack.
