Edit your question and add the lines(s) from the clipboard. That will let us work out exactly what technique is being used to display the image and diagnose farther.

Thank you! That's been irritating me for a while. Now all I need to do is unlearn a few years of muscle memory...

No, sorry. Try asking a new question that's specific to that. Include any event log / error messages that are relevant

If it's a case of recovering files, plug the system disk into a different machine and copy them off (or boot your machine from usb and do the same). If it's more involved (eg getting stuff out of the registry), I don't know a good answer. While this is probably not what you want to hear, next time have a backup before you start. Out of interest, do you know if the guest account is enabled on your machine?

Since you have D/E/F (I assume as data drives) you may be better off just wiping and starting again.

Sigh... I'm living through the first half of this story. Replacement Psu arrives tomorrow.

comment MTP extremely and prohibitively slow, appears hung
Also, it's not a proprietary protocol. It's used in proprietary DRM from Microsoft. Of course, that doesn't make it any less awful

comment Will my “6-core CPU” motherboard support an 8-core CPU?
As someone from the Intel crowd who doesn't follow AMD sockets, your answer isn't entirely clear. Are you saying the OP had an AM3 Cpu in an AM2 mobo (the ECS A885GM-A2) and that the new AM3+ Cpu won't work in the old motherboard? Also, I don't believe OP wanted 6-core unless you're saying that's the only option? It would be helpful if as well as quoting facts, you could include a sentence or two to answer the question as asked.

comment How to prevent USB from .fseventsd, .Trashes, .Spotlight-V100 folders and .DS_Store files?
So to prevent it writing hidden files to the usb you have to create a hidden file? Sigh
