The objective was to get an "old" style WU [not from 5508-5513 or 5017-5022] and see if the problem persists. When you deleted the work folder 7 or 8 times, did you get an "old" WU any of those times?

Reinstalling the client does nothing if the problems are a result of the WUs themselves. The client was running fine, and all of a sudden, on the same day that the new WUs are released, along with several thousand other users, it begins to misbehave. I just thought I'd save you some effort in diagnosing.

I much prefer to solve the problem. With your help there has been more than one.
My apologies. When I saw your post this morning, I thought you were looking for a hand.

If you're more in your comfort zone tearing down your system instead of figuring out what the problem is by elimination, then feel free. I have a very strong suspicion that the problem will remain even after, until they get the WUs and the drivers sorted out, though. Good luck, then.
