This was discussed recently.  See 
and the surrounding comments in that thread.

You have to give me enough information that I have a fighting chance of 
understanding the problem.  See 
http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/pods/bugs.pod.html and in particular 
the bit about capturing error messages.

That said, this seems like a likely candidate for the explanation:


You may not use Kaspersky, but similar behavior might result from any 
other AV solution.

I should mention that I do not have a Windows 10 machine to do my own 
testing on, nor am I likely to anytime soon.  I don't use Windows of any 
stripe at home and Windows 10 is not yet allowed on the network here at 
Brookhaven.  So if there is a problem specific to Windows 10, it is 
going to be a hard one for me to address.
