    Thanks for the suggestion, no luck! But I have found that its the full screen lockup thing, the fact that is seem to be only with the Intel graphics through me.
    I have done all the usual things, removed graphics acceleration, run ehshell as admin. edit registry to include DisableHWAcceleration and placed ehome in Program Files folder. So far the only thing that works is the Nvidia graphics card..
    Any fixes I have missed? thanks Sid

    Sure, the full screen is where the problems usually becomes apparent, and AMM is the way I always fixed them. Strange isn't working for you.

    You can also use TheMaxifier to workaround the problem, it allows you to use a fake full screen, which really is a big, borderless window, sized to fill the screen. Other than that I have no idea, likely you're facing a very specific driver problem.

    #1 Use the original 8.8.1 by T-S, check first if nsudo is working correctly launching the test-right script, you must end with an opened cmd window.

    If that doesn't happen everything else will fail (including uninstallation)

    #2 use WMC_Multi tool to fix the 8.8.1 installation (follow all steps starting from #4). [this step is not needed on older windows 10 from 1507 to 1703]

    Codecs are already in windows, since vista, they need just to be activated by the dvd player app (no dvd player=no premium codecs), anyway you can install the LAV codecs if you prefer.
