My Hughesnet Status meter has suddenly stopped displaying text on Windows 10 on all 4 computers

My Hughesnet Status meter has suddenly stopped working (not completely ) I get the graphics and they seem accurate enough but there is no text. I have 4 computers running all running Windows 10 and it occurred on all of them. I have not loaded any new software on any of them. The status meter displays normally if I go on the Myhughesnet web site and login to support there! Could I have have missed an Adobe plugin deletion?

Hello tedalmgren,

Thanks for posting. If all 4 have stopped working this is most likely the OS. Did your computer do a Windows update recently? Have you tried reinstalling the programs? How about in safe mode?

It now seems to be working again!  Interesting - when I turn on each of the computers and start the status meter, the first time it takes a minutes or so for the text to load.  Then the next time I start the status meter on that computer, it loads the text immediately.  I suspect that there might be some strange interaction in the OS.  Who knows when and where W10 updates!  I do know that it wasn't a major update because the status meter didn't indicate a great drop.  I only asked because I thought that there might have been some status meter update that I missed like an Adobe update. Reinstalling the status meter was my first approach but no change. 

 Thanks for the help but I guess we'll never know what caused it!!

Just another addition, having first begun to program in machine language in 1960 on one of the first semi-conductor computers, a little strange thing like this is a curiosity but not catastrophic like some folks seem to think!  Where I am, Hughesnet and (Direcway) are so much better that the 15k dialup!!
