Shut everything down, powered it off and then started it again.
While I write this, I'm still waiting for VMWare so startup the Linux session that makes me having 2 computers in one at the same time!.... :-)))
In fact that allows a greater productivity as I can switch to Linux / Windows as necessary to perform the actions I need!
Well, probably it will have started already, so I'm going back into programming mode!.... :-))))
