    I am the Administrator on this computer, and the only user, so I'm always running as administrator.

    When I look at the properties of a folder (right-click/properties), any...

    Win 7 Pro, SP-1

    When I attempt to open the Task Scheduler, I get an error message (attached), and can't continue. At that point, the only way to get out of that screen is to end the program via...

    Drew, I didn't drop Win 10 because of VAIO Care. I dropped it because Sony hasn't released the W10 drivers yet, and recommends waiting to switch to W10. Their site says the drivers will be available...

    OK, I reverted back to Win 7 Pro, no problems (very user-friendly reversion).
    And here I'll stay, at least until Sony provides it's updated Win 10 drivers. Then I'll probably try again (yes, I'm a...

    Thanks for the reply, Bob.

    As I said in my OP, I don't want to install the program on my computer. That seems to be a show-stopper here, so I think I'll just stick with True Image.

    Thanks again...
