    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...

    Have 2 USB wifi Adapters..Can I use one for internet and..

    Yes, you can. They must have different IP-addresses, though. Your 'normal' Wi-Fi adpter may have DHCP enabled, and will typically get an IP-address like the second adapter should have a static IP-address in another range, ie. Obviously all the other equipment that...

    Windows 8.1 Users Planning to Switch to Windows 7 Due to..

    I am fortunate that I had no problems with the update. That being said, I went from XP Pro to 8.1 (new hardware), skipping Vista/Win 7. Yesterday I had to "clean & repair" the Win 7 pc of a friend. Now I am very glad that I don't need Win 7!

    Users to the Rescue: Microsoft Listening to Consumer FB..

    Poor Microsoft They can never satisfy all the users all the time. (NOBODY can) In my humble opinion, the only mistake with Win 8 was that it tried to do 'all in 1'. What I think should have worked better, was Win. 8 with Metro (Modern UI) for those with touchscreens and mobiles, AND "Win. 9"...

    Solved silverlight plug in has crashed

    From experience, I found that Silverlight does not 'like' the Firefox browser. It should work OK in Internet Explorer.
