    How to copy an file to new usb using cmd?

    copy "X:\folder\filename.ext" "Y:\folder" Obviously, substitute the generics above with your actual values, where X & Y are the driveletters for source & target. Keep the quotation marks.

    Can't run any swf games by any player

    Note that Microsoft Update KB4577586 removes Flash capability from Windows systems. Maybe this is related?

    The sound you heard, is typical of a hard disk failing. I speak from experience. Hope you have your important files on backup?

    Can/Should I delete SystemSettings.exe?

    If these files are not in these locations, then you can worry: C:\Windows\WinSxS\ C:\Windows\ImmersiveControlPanel Looking at their properties, they are legit Microsoft. Advise to leave them alone.

    Is Windows Defender enough for Windows 8.1 security?

    The person in front of the computer is the weakest link. Defender is merely a very capable tool to assist in security. When in doubt, I always double-scan downloaded files with a second anti-virus scanner.

    Unable to recover SSD partition

    A long time ago, I bought a licence to R-Studio. I believe they also have a 'try-before-buy' option. Always had good experiences recovering data with this program, but have not yet tried it on a SSD.

    Video Card or Power Supply :/ I just dont know

    92 degC for a video card seems very hot to me. Maybe check your cooling. Especially extraction fan(s). My wife has a R7-260; never gets hotter than 77 degC, even when hammering it with a very modded game. Best way to troubleshoot your problem would be to swap the main components out one by one...

    AOE II Age of Kings - the ultimate catastrophe

    Due to your new rig having 12 GB RAM, I assume you now have a 64 bit o/s. Those very old games are most likely 16 bit; they will work on a 32 bit version of Win 8.1 under compatibility mode. However, if 16 bit, they will not work on a 64 bit operating system.

    Is anyone able to see an 8.1 shared drive from XP?

    Sorry that I cannot help more. The only other thing that I can think of that I did on my 8.1 box, is that I use the "Classic Shell" 3rd party software, and I had to give "everyone" read+write permissions on the shares in 8.1. No problems on my side. You have the same username/password on both...

    Can't see new 8.1 pro install drives from XP network

    On my XP/8.1 network, I use only a workgroup, as the XP machines cannot join the homegroup. Thus, to connect/access the shared directories on the 8.1 machines, I made the shared directories and their files accessible to 'everyone' with 'read+write' access. On the XP machine in Win.Explorer...
