Default Reaper ignoring plugins in scanned folder

All of a sudden Reaper has selectively decided not to include the Sonigen Modular plugin in my available vsti's from the (x86)Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins folder. Other plugins from that folder appear. The path is definitely in the list. I've tried clearing cache -rescan, Reinstalled the synth (the standalone works fine), moved the dll to its own folder, added a new path and rescanned. Nothing works. It's as if it has independently chosen not to see it. There are 2 patches in there that I can't duplicate (without a great deal of time and effort) on any other synth. Any suggestions?

The only thing I've done today that could possibly impact this (though I don't see how) is install Python to run a script (and with that I had to trick Reaper into finding it by copying the dll into the system32 folder, based on the advice of others in this forum. That worked, but then when I went to play the file later I got "The following effects were in the project file and are not available. REAPER will keep their configurations, but things may not sound as desired.

Track 6: VSTi: Sonigen Modular (x86) (Sonigen)
Track 27: VSTi: SF Synth 3.1 - SynthEdit (x86) (SynthEdit www.synthedit.com)"
For some reason it's not giving me the error on the SF synth anymore.

Default Resolution

Windows security update today. The problem has disappeared after the update. (Just for anyone in the future who may have a similar problem - I did try a reboot before the windows update to no avail).

Try doing a full clear/rescan instead of just a RESCAN in reaper menu prefs/options/plugins/VST
