I had not had a chance to install Anti-virus yet, and had uninstalled the bloatware AV on the laptop. During troubleshooting yesterday I did exit the Comodo firewall I had installed to no effect.
Today I uninstalled Comodo rebooted and the Books added perfectly to Calibre!
I reinstalled Comodo just now and tested adding a book again. Worked great. Like the program always does. So I must of screwed up blocking Calibre in Comodo somehow.
I appreciate your jumping into help. I was getting upset! Thank you.
