I understand completely Bruce :) I also have a laptop and phone but hardly use them for online stuff. :P

Fingers crossed and hopefully you have your desktop in good order back soon! :)

its back ~ thanks for asking :)
had a different tech give it a going over, and found NOTHING that would indicate why it was happening.  he DID run a win10 'repair' and sent me on my way.~
when i saw the techie i normally have work on my pc, he knows me, knows my sys and knows how important GPL is to me - he expressed disappointment that the repair was all that was done. he's still of the mind that it is something else (mobo) and expects the problem to still occur, but admits he could be wrong.
his reasoning is, a problem that is consistent and repeats itself would more likely be SOFTware... but what was happening to my pc was random, and non specific error messages, which he said indicates HARDware.
i am now in the 6th day of smooth running - w/out repeat of the problem, so who knows?  maybe its 'fixed'  :D
