    Click on link 'I have changed hardware' (even though you have not). You should see your device. Select it and it should reactivate.

    Hi there


    that fixed it .

    Oh well : "The mysterious world of Windows". !!!!

    I notice also it was complaining because I'd changed the password on an Ms account --even though I always use Local accounts on Windows machines.

    slightly OT but I do see you mess around with Ubuntu -- am going to try your suggestion on the HYPER-V 2016 server I've downloaded - I've a bit of free time this week.
