Thank you oh great esteemed one, how you ever found this in the 'byte in the internet' mayhem I will never know, but after trying every piece of advice from a multitude of sources from 10 roll backs to clean boots a simple Asian download has just solved my problem, especially as I use this to record travel routes wordwide which I transfer to Google earth, over and above picture data.
My life is now fullfilled.
OK additional information.... for first time utility loaded ok and accepted pictures and log files..... BUT NO MAPS loaded.
Have now discovered windows 10 will not support any 32 bit programs....really considerate of them, so decidced to install windows 7 as a secondary operating system as a work around, but cheers for your help.
