Marble fails to start

Suddenly Marble has decided that it wouldn't start. I get a message saying:
"This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows"
It suggests to reinstall the apps, which I did. But it still gives me the same message.
I'm running Win 10 with the latest patches.

Antivirus

Did your antivirus change at all lately? Have you tried installing and running Marble Portable to your Desktop directory temporarily to rule out any issues with drive corruptions and permissions?

Marble Portable is working without issue on my WIndows 10 Pro x64 machine with the Anniversary update and all patches through today.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

There's been no change in my

There's been no change in my antivirus (Avira). My Windows 10 with the anniversary update has all required patches. I've tried to run the marble-qt exe directly and got the same message saying that it "could not find or load the Qt platform plugin 'windows'". I re-installed Marble as the warning suggested and got the same result. Any other idea?

Thanks for any help.
