  1. OK – I'm afraid this one is still running, and it seems to be along entirely the same lines as the earlier NAS issue. I have done a clean reinstall as asked earlier and can add the following, which is critical to you being able to reproduce the problem. I have two network printers, an old HP LaserJet and a Xerox Phaser 7500, each having a stable IP address on the LAN. With Web Protection disabled, all is well.
