    Trying to access from France, but won't load any MSE page.

    So how did I get here? Used a VPN.

    Been getting the TCP error for about 2 hours now and only with MSE.

    According to the error message, I'm somewhere in Turkey and the IP address it gives for me starts with 78.

    Strange as I'm right now right in the middle of England and not on a VPN or proxy.

    Also, I type up a post hit the submit button, the post gets posted and I'm logged out at the same time.

    Could this be something to do with Win 10 anniversary update?

    I've not noticed any of this when on a tablet.

    I've been getting a 'Error 20' message like the ones described all day when it comes to the MSE site. Since that stupid update, it really hates this site & BBC News for some reason.
    I've been using Chrome to access this site, and it's playing up on that as well.
    It's very frustrating, especially when you are posting a reply and it logs you out.
    In a way, I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue.
