It all started when my lap-top died.  It had been on life-support for quite a while, but I never had the luxury of being without it for 2 days or more to be repaired. So it died, and I got a new one with Windows 8.1.  I’ve had it for about 2 weeks now; all my old data has been restored and I’m ge...
