For an example:


Thinkpad T420, 4Gb, i5, SSD

Recently rebuilt and reinstalled: Win10, VS2017, TortoiseGit, standard 
Windows Antimalware, usual developer tools. That particular run was done 
with the laptop unattended (ie nothing else going on at the front end).
But the problem is certainly not specific to this laptop.
