Meanwhile:  many thanks for taking the trouble to try and sort it out.

The re-installation of Ubuntu 16.04 went OK.   Although it would have been nice to know what the problem was, one can have too much of a good thing so re-installing was definitely the best way forward.
I am now the proud possessor of a really fast PC and my lady friend will regret returning it to me! 

As usual I am indebted to you, Mark, for taking so much trouble.  Many thanks.
