Solution from Mel Ashton, 25/05/11
The problem turned out to be the newly installed Internet Explorer 9 Web Browser.  After several hours trying to delete I.E.9 I had to restore my computer to it's original, (as purchased), condition - I am currently in the process of re-installing all my programs, data, etc.
A 'Google' search revealed LOTS of people have problems with I.E.9 and find it almost impossible to remove - I suggest that you resist any temptation to install I.E.9 until the problems with it are resolved !!
