Thanks for your reply, and sorry not to have responded earlier - real 
life gets in the way sometimes:(

I'm running Windows 8.1 and installed the new version as an Administrator.

I managed to get round the problem by uninstalling it and reverting back 
to an older version as I had accumulated so many programs to download 
and was running out of time for obtaining them. I haven't yet installed 
the new version again as everything seems to be working as it should for 

Once I've caught up again, I'll install the new version and see if I get 
the same error. If I do I'll post the output as you requested.

Many thanks
