    Hi guys

    I was wondering if anyone can help me with this problem , usually when it happened in the past a simple re boot solved this issue , I have tried system restore and ran Avast , malwarebytes and super anti spyware but nothing has helped , any input would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers
