Remember that it could be something else.

For example another day, another problem and we traced it to the privacy protection of the antivirus suite.

The poor owner could not bring themselves to go without that feature so they were forever stuck with this issue.

This may or may not be your issue but I hope it makes you think of the other causes.

Over the years that's what I do.

Since you have the opportunity to try it without removing, your choice to see if that works.
