Hi Martin,

 The guy that did the winsock fix... Chrome was the only program unable to connect.

 Of the two fixes, its the one I'd try first as it looks more like the logical choice.


 Seems odd that even a reinstall wouldn't work.

 Tell you what... can you uninstall it & re-install it but when you re-install it, right click on the install .exe and choose "Run as Administrator".

 Perhaps PGO needs to set something up to get to the internet and unless it has elevated privileges it might not be able to.

Cheers,

 Wilson.

Thanks, Wilson - tried both of these just now.  No change with either a reinstall as admin or winsock reset, unfortunately.

After another reboot and another automatic W10 upgrade, I started PGO again and just left it, and now it's working.  I've changed nothing myself since my earlier msgs this morning.  Here are the latest log entries:

I hate Microsoft....

think of the amount of collective grief they generate with their half arsed software updates.

Its just unprofessional.

It's wasted a lot of our collective time in the past couple of days - thanks for your patience and input on all this.

I would still love to know what the issue was. Why PGO couldn't connect to the internet.

Maybe we'll find out someday...
