Hi,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

A complete virus scan on the PC should be able to help us in this situation.

A fast way to check whether your PC has a virus is to use Windows Defender. This malware protection is included with Windows and helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. Once this is done you may also check for any pending updates and install the same to see if that helps.

How do I find and remove a virus?: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/getstarted-protect-your-pc

Note: There could be a loss of data while performing a scan using Microsoft safety scanner to eliminate virus if any.

Keep us informed to help you further.

I had the same issue from a Windows 10 machine.

The way I was able to access the Airport was to disable IPv6 on the Windows 10 machine.

Alternatively, you could connect to the IPv4 address of the AirPort by using "Configure Other..." from the File menu of the AirPort Utility.  Thank you for pointing out the relation to IPv6.

Updating the "Configure Other..." settings from the File menu of the AirPort Utility worked for me too.

Save yourself hours searching the web changing ipv6, TCP/IP and others.

just go into Control Panel-Troubleshooting-Newtwork Adapter and let it do its thing.

Worked a treat for me in less than a minute.
