This one is driving me nuts because it is highly convenient for me to access my e-mails in Windows.

Due to an MS update last week my Win 7 deteriorated to the stage that I had to do a complete re-install. Since then I have been restricted to text only e-mail - I use AOL - in Win 7 and even that doesn't work properly. While Firefox is my default broswer in Win 7 I have Chrome and IE 11 and it is exactly the same in them. Every other web-site is working normally. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox without improving the situation any.
If I switch over to Linux my e-mail works perfectly normally on Firefox, as it does on my wife's Fujitsu laptop (Win 7) on the same router, and it works perfectly normally on a third computer I was using on a public network yesterday morning, also Win 7.
The Seagate ST 1000 is about two years old, maybe a little more, and Smart and Chkdsk both show no problems. As well as that, every other piece of software installed on that hard drive, all windows applications, appear to be running normally.
Any ideas ?
