I've looked at this page in greater detail today. Half way down there is
a list of files it tells you to rename and then to delete. I've checked
these by searching the whole of my C:\Windows folder and have not found
any of them, so I'd be surprised if I had the Haxdoor virus.

I've installed and run Malwarebytes. It found something called
Adware/Zinki (something like that anyway) which it has removed so I will
see if that has resolved the problem when I boot the PC tomorrow. Part
of me wonders if it just doesn't like booting up from cold in the
morning, something I'm not that keen on either !!
