    Is the Flash Player from MS only for use with IE?

    Assuming it was for anything requiring flash, I install the monthly update, and have been puzzled by the fact that many sites ask for Adobe...

    Even I realised that, but having a busy schedule this week, and thus unable to spare time for the laptop until today, it seemed better to spend a few minutes asking the question rather than relying...

    Contrary to what the author says, Windows 8.1.1 does offer the option of creating a password reset USB drive, probably because I have never had a MS account.

    My question is whether this will work...

    RG,
    The USB stick is formatted as FAT 32.

    RG,

    Based on your reply, I retried the USB stick, selecting the UEFI Removable Disk PMAP option. (Surprised that your boot disk is an external drive – never heard of that before). It booted to...

    RG,

    I did consider deselecting MBR/UEFI as the drive will only be used on this PC, and thus UEFI is more relevant, but am fairly certain it was left selected. However, it seems to me that almost...

    How to test Macrium Pro rescue disk?

    After installing a Macrium update and creating a new image of my Win 8.1 PC, I decided it would be a good idea to make a new rescue disk. I reformatted the existing flash drive and tried to make an...

    I had a look at this, but apparently it only updates drivers, which are usually best left alone unless one has problems with a specific application. It does not appear to me to compare with Secunia...

    Thanks for the info. I may reinstall it, if the details in #26 do not solve the Secunia problem. Especially if, as your reply seems to suggest, it would update VLC from 32 to 64 bit. I am somewhat...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’m using it as a temporary measure, although not very impressed.

    Listing dozens of programmes which are not installed on my PC is just an irritating time waster, but...

    I admit that I missed that, http://*.secunia.com is now listed in Trusted Sites, but the only difference seems to be that scans now abort after 7 seconds instead of 11 or 12 previously. There is...

    Thanks to Google I found Secunia v2, which is not offered on the secunia site. However, it no longer works, maybe because my PC is 64 bit. Three attempts to scan have each aborted after 12 seconds.

    RG,
    Many thanks for that. It looks as though you may have solved one problem that was really inconveniencing me, whilst the other remains unresolved.

    Substitute for Secunia PSI?

    Secunia still works on the laptop and my wife’s PC – both Win8.1.1 Pro, but for the last three weeks has failed on my Win 8.1.1 Basic with UEFI.

    DJG,

    Why not remove all uncertainty, create an image with something like Macrium free, and store it on an external drive? Much safer than relying on a recovery partition or even an image on your...

    Not sure what a notebook is, imagine it to be somewhere between a laptop and a tablet. If so, did it come with an installation disk or restore partition? In which case you could try a reinstall.
