    It does complete then, that's something at least. I had to deliberately turn off my WiFi part-way through to make those screenshots. Have you tried a wired connection rather than your WiFi? If that works it would point the finger of suspicion at your laptops' WiFi rather than your ISP.

    Hi Bree,

    Thanks, that's very true! We're getting new Wifi tomorrow (with a different ISP) so I'm hoping this'll help; although when I've changed the internet connection from my current Wifi to my mobile data via tethering, the programme still reoccured.

    I'll take a look into your wired suggestion though - cheers. :)
