On my i7 desktop which I have used for the last 6 months, MiniTiouner suddenly takes about 30 seconds to load and then does not update any of the graphics and eventually hangs. This happens in all versions and running the "test my MiniTiouner" program shows the I2C speed has dropped to about 30%.
To try and resolve the problem, I have:
Rebooted the PC!
Tried new USB leads.
Tried a second MiniTiouner hardware.
Tried the leads and hardware on my laptop where all combinations work OK.
Tried all USB sockets on the machine, including front and back.
Device manager reports all device OK and drivers are latest available.
edit * I have uninstalled and deleted the drivers and re-installed them * edit
SDR console runs fine, other USB devices seem to work OK and I can still program FT2232H USB modules.
Left it overnight and the problem still exists!
Any constructive ideas, paricularly on how to test USB performance (not flash drives) are welcome!

And the PCI USB card I ordered doesn't work - doesn't even recognise a memory stick. Don't think it's connected and the supplier is sending me a new one.
As you do not install MT (it just extracts) and the older versions I have on the PC had the same problem problem I did not think to download and extract a new copy. However, following Mike's comment I have just downloaded a new .zip, extracted in to a different folder and it works
The only thing I can think of is that I downloaded a trial copy of Malwarebytes at about the same time as the problem appeared but uninstalled it as part of trying to find the problem and thought no more about it....
Good job I bought a PCI card with Firewire ports so it wasn't a total waste of money.
