Also just in case it is an issue could you try disabling any antivirus
software. I typically do not run antivirus during contest activity. I have
found any number of strange things happening with the antivirus and/or
malaware software running.

Nothing suggests thus explicitly but seems when all else fails try to
eliminate potential problems.
