comment Best option to have an encrypted and password protected folder on Windows 8.1
This question appears to be a duplicate, though the accepted answer recommends TrueCrypt which no longer is being supported.

comment Windows 7 Encrypt Folder with Password
I should note that since TrueCrypt is no longer supported, it should be considered insecure, and therefore it should no longer be recommended software.

comment Clicking the Internet Explorer icon opens Google Chrome instead
I rewrote the question and title to match what I believe what you wanted to say. The tags say you are using Windows 8.1 Is this in the Start Screen? You are clicking on the IE tile, right? Not a desktop icon? Can you provide screenshots to illustrate the issue?

comment Is there an opposite to Wake On LAN?
Truthfully, it'd be possible to write a simple daemon that listens for a specially crafted packet and triggers a shutdown, but I don't know of anything that actually does this.

The OS version wasn't specified, but Windows (at least Windows 10) has this setting built-in to their mouse Settings app screen, if I recall correctly, as well. So it would be good to check both the OS and any driver-specific settings app.

comment Boot disk not found - can this be a software issue?
@JoeEnos Sounds promising! Might be worth just RMA'ing the old disk anyways, then, since you have a replacement that appears to be working better, or at the very least, no differently. They might send you a free replacement or at least refund your money.

Correct. If it was a BIOS configuration issue, you probably would be seeing this error every time you boot. Not just some of the time.
