Hi,

 

Did you run any malware check on the machine?

 

The log show no Antivirus installed and Windows Defender is off!

 

There is an old version of Malwarebytes installed, my suggestion is to remove it and install the most recent version https://www.malwareb...nload/thankyou/

run a Scan and remove everything detected.

Thank you for all your help.  This was certainly a tough nut to crack!
