    And the fix was?

    . Win10 + Plex + Emby + HW Transcoding (QSV) | Define R5 Black + i7 4790K + 32GB RAM + 256GB SSD (OS) + 525GB SSD (VMs) + 4TB Storage Space + Nvidia GTX 760 DCU II OC
    . Shield TV (2015) + Kodi 18 + Plex for Android App | Minix NEO X6 + Android 5.1.1 + Kodi 18 + inputstream.adaptive + plugin.video.netflix

    Can you be more specific? What fix did you apply from that fixwin-10 tool?

    i never saw this response i apologize long story short win fix worked for a little bit i cant remember what i did but it involved running two different programs within win fix and it fixed it for about a month i ended up having to do a fresh install of the windows update on my computer that has so far fixed the problem at least until the next update that breaks it again but a fresh install of windows will usually fix most problems not hardware related but its a last resort in my opinion. i lost alot of data in the process nothing i wasn't willing to lose always back up essentials
    again i apologize for not getting back with you...
