FYI.. lotta sites selling 1 or 2 TB USB sticks for peanuts, ie less than £20. Basically, they can't make them for that price. The USB controller on the stick is made to think it has 1 or 2TB of storage space. While only having (usually) 8Gb or so of actual storage.
If I could (like many PC nerds) get that kinda storage for less than £20 rather than pay £100 for a 1TB SSD.. I'd be queueing up and buying half a dozen at a time.

mal4inara: I would still switch to windows 10 though, if you can. Even though 8.1 is still getting security updates, it only has two years left of such. Easy to get off microsoft (I use win 10 Pro) via a free download. And if you want to go legit re licence, mine cost £3 off ebay
But as I said, only if you or someone you know, is savvy enough to do it. And back up all your data onto USB stick firstly. To be safe
Bernice: Probably some maintenance prog erased your password memory for the site, or a windows update causing a little mayhem. Why I have a book for all the sites, games and such. And a USB stick for backing up photos and my Ark evolved game save. Lost months of play thanks to my phone charging via USB cable while windows was updating. Couldn't even use a restore.
Just set it to remember all as you use to.
btw if you use a USB stick to back up or transfer stuff. Remember to "Eject it". Makes sure windows has done all data transfers, else it could have put such on hold while it does other stuff. Saves getting corrupt files
Built myself a Ryzen 3600X based rig with 16gb 3200mhz ram. Vega 56 GPU (know how to unlock to make it a Vega 64), 1TB NVME gen 3 as primary SSD, with a 500mb SSD for less used items.. all presented on a 27" 1440p 144fps 1ms monitor, most expensive part btw. Probably outlive a few GPU's ;)
No moving parts bar fans. Beats First gen Ryzen 8 core chips in multi thread tests. Renders 1080p 60fps 10 minute vids in 3 minutes!
Minimal RGB lighting at start. But CPU fan is now RGB, and bought RGB strip.Though Mobo (X470) is just RGB, buying Addressable RGB parts and use a convertor box I bought to give right signal. Thinking lights will last years, so can re use them as pure addressable on next Mobo.
at 1080p easy 144fps at 1440p 90fps
took a few hours to build, but was over careful. Double checked I knew what I was doing, before doing it. Not a youtuber with many builds behind me. But it's a very nice system :)
Bernice: I am sorry if it means you are having to pay to get the computer fixed. I think they always there was virus on the computer. I have spare computer and a laptop and tablets to fall back to if I have problems. I love my gadgets lol.
crosseyed: Ive never had any problem with either of them until now :(....and I went to FIREFOX when our illustrious leader FENCER touted it many many moons ago....Never a problem. In with the Puter Doctor nfow :(,,,,more money down the drain LOL
