    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
    I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to solve this problem, and this solution worked like a charm.

  2. Poor Leno Says:

    Worked a treat cheers. Can you explain why this works though?

  3. Mark Says:

    Hi Leno.

    Sorry, I don’t know why this setting change corrects
    the problem. Unfortunately it seems to do this every
    time there is an update, and you have to keep changing
    this setting back.

    I can only imagine there are a lot of people out there
    thinking their computer isn’t working properly!

    Thats because your an idiot who likes to think he knows about computers. Then again everyone needs a hobby… Learn about computers before you blog about them…

  5. Mark Says:

    Thanks for that Steven. I’m just happy to have helped Leno.
    Perhaps you would like to answer the question yourself?

  6. Poor Leno Says:

    Wow. What a complete arse. (Bit late, just found this again a year later). Thanks again Mark.

  7. Jenny Says:

    ah, many thanks!
