Need help cloning a Hard Drive.

I made the mistake of buying a refurbished Dell Optiplex 7010 with Win 10 from staples office supplies. Now that I have it I realize that if the HD dies the computer is toast.
I know Corrine and Plodr are saying its about time he purchased something to replace that old XP computer. LOL
So what I want to do is make a clone of the fresh HD before the computer has any thing added or connected to the internet.

Hard Drive in the new computer is a Hitachi SATA 3.0 – 2TB.
I have a good but old Maxtor SATA1.5 – 80GB but will buy whatever is required.

It looks like I will have to buy one of those stand alone HD cloners like in this link but I don’t know any thing about them.

Any help will be appreciated.

Security Software Programs / Malwarebytes will not install?

  Malwarebytes will not install?

OK my free version of Malwarebytes was 8 months old so I clicked on the update button. It seamed to update and install OK but it displayed this popup. “This app failed to initialize properly (oxc000001d).”

Then when I clicked on the Malwarebytes icon it gave the same popup.
Tried deleting Malwarebytes in Add or Remove Programs and downloading directly from Malwarebytes but with same bad results and same popup?

I have tried this 3 times and the second time it acted like it installed and was displayed the Malwarebytes screen and then it started installing again and o messed up and clicked the yes button without and ended up with the same bad popup at the end.

The third time was just like the first clicked on finish button and got “This app failed to initialize properly (oxc000001d).”

Security Alerts & Briefings / Replacement for Adobe flash player?
« on: July 29, 2015, 05:48:24 AM »
For the last week I have been attempting to upgrade Adobe Flash Player with no luck.
Every time there is a popup that says:
Adobe Download Manager has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

This is on two old computers with XP and Firefox 39.
For some reason I have seen this before but Flash would eventually install?

It would be nice to replace Flash with something else if possible.

Internet / Browser for XP?

I was using Firefox but every time I upgraded to a new version it would mess up.

I don’t need any thing fancy just something with a decent favorites section.
