I have expanded the item list and attached image. The Feedreader.exe is an RSS feed-reader called G2Reader.

Unfortunately I'll be offline after 7pm this evening (UK) but hopefully can catch up tomorrow.
No problem!

Win7 Pro 32 bit

I have run the CrystalDisk program and have attached the readings/images for both the main hard drive (Cdr) and the Toshiba drive (Tdr).
There were no problems this morning with the computer booting correctly; initially without the Toshiba drive; followed by a power-down, connect Toshiba and then power-up again.

There is however one extra thing I've noticed, that may or may not have a connection to the original problem; and that is, my screen-saver has gone. I usually have things set to 60 minutes' inactivity before the screen-saver is activated. This morning I left the computer for only twenty minutes, and returned to find the monitor completely blank. I had not, in the past, selected the "blank" option by mistake, I definitely had it set on "mystic" so it would be a moving-pattern screensaver. I don't fiddle with any of the power settings either.
And then, thinking about it, I recall that this episode had also happened yesterday.
As far as the disks are concerned, they seem to look ok on the data given, although I'm not much good at interpreting all the individual results.
