  1. Maybe the site has the problem? Try to connect from another newer OS to check it.
  2. Any antivirus program is the first suspect when something abnormal happens (although they are necessary).
  3. Now that your OS isn't updated anymore you must be more careful. A good antivirus software is necessary in my opinion (you don't mention to have one installed).
  4. By the way to see the unused security descriptors reported you must use chkdsk with the /v switch (we always talk about NTFS file system of course).
  5. Minor inconsistencies of a drive happen from time to time (not very often), unused security descriptors are always present even if you run an NTFS system for just a day. Reallocated, pending or uncorrectable sectors are rare but they do still occur and usually are harmless (unless they increase from day to day which is a certain sign of disk failure, I had such a case myself).
  6. On Windows XP SP2 and SP3 (at least) the "do not load" is in place of "enumerate" which is present in the ntbtlog.txt in previous versions of Windows but here ntbtlog.txt fails to present it correctly. Sorry but I run chkdisk all my life (almost) and all this stuff is absolutely normal (the bad sectors aren't so common but sometimes they exist too).
  7. Then it might just be a bug of Windows 7?
  8. Strange unexplained problem = reinstalling of the OS (that's what I do, of course you can try System Restore - I do - and if you have a disk backup program and one or more images made before the problem occurred it can be very helpful and time saving).
  9. Maybe the hard wired PC is the one that isn't visible?
  10. It's a shame that IE 11 is available for Windows 7 and not for Windows 8, time for this to be changed.
  11. Is it so simple? And what exactly do you copy (the executable file, all the files in its folder, anything more)?
  12. Running Windows XP on Haswell is a big success as far as I can say, perhaps Windows 2000 is too much (or little) for it.
  13. I suppose your system has the correct date and time?
  14. Free Download Manager 3.9.7 is very good but it is for Windows XP and higher: https://dn3.freedownloadmanager.org/fdminst.exe (in case you or anybody else is interested).
  15. Post EOS Windows XP updates (from the Microsoft Update Catalog): KB4018466 KB4019204 KB4022747 KB4024323 KB4024402 KB4025218
