QTweb Internet browser is there on the taskbar, if you need it.
damn, i feel special and blessed to have access to your creation. thank you sir. so i'll name it "SIW2 boot loader"?

i was afraid to play around with it bc i didn't know what any of the programs did.

can you tell me what nt6repair, and dism gui are? i understand the others.

oh boy, i am getting the critical process died bsod again completely freezing up my 8.1 again. i had used macrium to restore my system to a point before these issues but it is still freezing up every 45 minutes or so. i am guessing i can restore my system to before this was an issue but it won't help because it is a separate issue? i took my pc to a friend last week and just got it back a few days ago. it seems it is back now. as soon as i got it back, i started to use macrium to avoid these kinds of issues but after 3 days or so, it's back. can someone tell me if it's possible to protect from this?

It looks like you might have a hardware problem or the laptop might be overheating. Download this Speccy program & install it & you can diagnose a lot of problems.

I made my first Macruim image of win 7. At first I did not try to reinstall the image, but was more interested in trying to copy a file or two that I wanted. I get as far as finding them and click on restore and nothing happens...so I do not know if its possible to restore individual files...does anyone know it can and how successful were they in doing so and explain how its done...inquiring minds want to know. LOL

Have you tried a simple copy and paste?

I agree with essenbe's reply. Copy & paste definitely works as I have done it myself on numerous occasions.

copying a file in Macruim

Most likely, its me and lack of knowledge that came with the free version of macruim. as it turned out when i went to make a backup of win 7 in 2016 on my external hd. Since then i had to buy a disk of Win 7 for a new computer...so all i am interested in with that bkup are some files. When i boot up the drive, i see so many drives and wonder why are they shown. I am only interested in my bkup one. When i see the size of that external drive, it carries the drive letter "J". That ought to give you the idea of how many drives are shown in Macruim. Messing around i came across what i assume is the backup drive, cause it says BKwin7. I choose to the left to browse files. At first i only see 4 listed folders starting with Boot, and source. Anyhow i finally get to see the list of folders that look like my older version. When I click on some of those folders that i would want to copy, they open empty. So what are my recourse, if any, after making a so called backup in Macruim, if the ones that i am interested in copying are shown as empty? Also, why does Macruim confuse the issue of showing all the other existing drives on my system as it stands today? The less shown, the better.

This Macrium website might help you with mounting an image so you can copy files & paste them.

Browsing Macrium Reflect images and backups in Windows Explorer - KnowledgeBase - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase

On your question on the number of drives showing in Macrium, may be related to the number of partitions you have on your hard drive, but where it says drive J does not mean that all the alphabetical letter before J are in use. If the back up drive is a USB one Windows will allocate a drive letter to it that has not been used before.

If you want to see what partitions you have on your main Windows C drive use Disc Management & to use that follow this Forum tutorial.
