Publishing to Flickr

Until recently, I was able to post to my Flickr account directly from LightRoom which was very convenient. However, after experiencing problems with both Windows 10 and Carbonite and having work done on the lap top to correct them, I am no longer able to use this feature. I am able to select the photos and put them in the Flicr service but when I hit the "Publish" button, I get an error message saying "An internal error has occurred. Something is wrong in "CryptUnprotectData." Any ideas on how to fix this??
