I think so

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, if it is Internet Explorer
Please do the following in Internet Explorer
Click Tools (the gear wheel top right) than Internet Options
Click on the General Tab and Delete all Temporary Internet Files.
Than click the Advance Tab and click Reset
Then restart the computer and tell me if you still have the issue.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

So computer just stopped at 10% scanned. For well over an hour it said the same message and I had to go out. Switched it all off and when I got back followed options on screen and eventually got something resembling my computer but lost various bits - but BBCiplayer works - not tried other sites.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, there was a lot of corruption on the computer and thats why the repair took so long.
Good the player is now working. And windows fixed a lot of its issues with the repair we did.
