      Thanks for the suggestion but it is a desktop and the fast startup is disabled. I always keep it disabled because it has caused a problem when I restore a disk image.

      Here is the message I get from Xplorer2 when I try to shred a file.

      I’m not sure the screen shot is showing in this post. The message I get is “Shredding files on SSD media doesn’t make sense; it is ineffective and reduces the write life of your drive. Continue with shredding anyway?”

      Thanks for all the replies. In response to Paul T, I am concerned because I have two separate programs which are telling me that I have SSDs rather than hard drives. The Xplorer2 file manager has a file shredding utility which warns me that shredding files on SSD media doesn’t make sense and is ineffective. I posted on their forum and they have not had anyone else report this.

      I confess that I just tried my image backup program again and this time it did not issue a warning about restoring an image to an SSD, maybe the previous time just a glitch but I’ll try again to reproduce it. Anyway, here is the information on the drives. I notice it doesn’t name the manufacturer, but it is Western Digital.

      Thanks all for the responses, especially for the info on where to find a clean filezilla installer.

    • #2309626

      I may have stumbled into a good workaround for seeing the perfmon report: Type “computer” in the search field on the Task Bar and select the Computer Management App. Select Performance under System Tools from the tree on the left. From that point there seem to be several options, including Open Resouce Monitor, which show various graphs and reports.

    • #2304033

      Thanks again to both of you for the suggestions. I have been playing more with the on-line properties dialog and have found some short cuts which allow me to force inheritance with  a lot fewer clicks. This will make it feasible to do what I need manually so I’ll just do it that way.

    • #2304015

      Thanks to both of you for the replies.

      Rick, I am a rather cautious person and even though the programs you listed are probably safe, I was hoping to do this without automated registry edits or installing unproven software. If I can’t I will try one of them.

      Anonymous: I just tried that. The inheritance goes for a while and then hits one of several folders where it stops with the error shown in Error.png (attached). If I look at the folder properties I find that it apparently has no owner, i.e. the attempt to have it inherit ownership failed. I can fix the folder manually, but then I still end up having do the same with every file in it. If I fix all those files I just get the same kind of error with another folder. There are too many to do them all manually.

      IHip, did you uninstall all the Canon Lide 110 material before re-installing?

      No. But in the process of installing the new drives it put up a message saying “uninstalling old drivers.”

    • #1586513

      Installing the latest drivers for the Canon scanner did not resolve the problem. I’ll keep looking for an answer, but for now I think I’ve exhausted all my possible solutions.

    • #1586339

      I do have Greenshot (a screen capture program) installed and it does sit in the system tray. I have the latest version and it has worked perfectly.

      I also have a Canon LIDE 110 scanner which I always keep plugged in to a USB port. It does occasionally fail with a connection failure in the midst of scanning. In response to your suggestion I have installed the latest driver from Canon (I did have an older version) and will post later to report if that helps.

    • #1586266

      No other (driver?) updates listed, or failed updates?

      The only other failure in the Reliability Monitor is svchost.exe_stisvc.

    • #1586052

      I haven’t used the Reliability Monitor before. There was nothing related to graphics or Chrome. Interestingly and unrelated, it shows multiple instances of Keepass, my password manager, crashing even though it has never had a problem. The Chrome crashes do not happen while using Keepass to enter a password.

    • #1585934

      Have you tried using another browser with these same web sites? What happened with for example with Firefox or MS Internet Explorer?

      Unfortunately there is no consistency to what sites crash Chrome. If I go back to the same page that was active when Chrome crashed it sometimes crashes again, but usually it doesn’t. When I get sick of Chrome’s crashed I occasionally switch to Edge and it hasn’t crashed yet.

    • #1585933

      It’s possible that something like ‘bad’ video drivers are behind this, what graphics card or CPU/motherboard chipset do you have?

      My PC has an Intel Core i5-4570 processor with built in graphics running on a Gigabyte motherboard. There is no separate graphics card. Is it likely that I need new drivers for the processor?

    • #1585812

      Cleaning out the Temp files didn’t help. Chrome still crashes several times a day. Yahoo seems to be the most regular offender, but is not the only site that causes a crash. Going back to the same page that was active when Chrome crashed sometimes causes a crash again and sometimes does not. The crash often happens after I have been on the page for a length of time rather than immediately.
