    I've attached the file.

    Yes, I saw what you referred to in the Speccy output. I also saw that OpenVPN is associated with Anonymizer VPN, which I had on my computer before NordVPN. I'm not sure how to use that information—if you were asking me to do something, or just pointing it out.

    NordVPN/OpenVPN is still on the system. Have you tried to show hidden devices in Device Manager, or gone into the Registry to look for NordVPN by the Find function to get rid of it, same as OpenVPN. The only way at times to rid a system of junk that will not go away, is by having to go to a System Restore point way past when you installed NordVPN, or just do a clean install.

    Thanks so much for your patience. I went into Device Manager and removed both of the VPN adapters. The problem remained. Then I saw that the NordVPN extension was still sitting in the Chrome toolbar. When I removed the extension all was right. Problem solved, lessons learned.

    That was well worth knowing how to get rid of stuff that does not always uninstall. The worse case scenario, would have been a restore and possibly the one that was not non-destructive.
