1 problem fixed thanks to TerryLaze.
The second one.
My SSD, that I boot from, was getting full so I bought another (Samsung 870 QVO 2TB) .
Used the Samsung Migration software to copy the old SSD contents to the new one.
Seemed to work ok but after a while (varies say 5 to 20 minutes) the computer hangs.
If I put the old SSD back in the system works fine.
Thanks in advance for any help

OK I have had a look at Reliability Monitor and nothing looks nasty at the time the last hang occurred (though I am not sure I would recognise a nasty).
Event viewer - nothing seems to be reported from the time of the hang just that the computer was shut down.
Is trying the migration again a good idea? or
a clean windows install on the new SSD?
Again thanks in advance for any advice.
