Hi SuperDave
Thanks for helping me.

I checked Windows Defender and McAfee. The Settings for Windows Defender said that it was turned off. McAfee is turned on.

I noticed that I have some functionality with the right mouse button. If I go into Mouse settings and change the Primary button setting to the right button, then I get most of the functionality that I would normally get with the left button, but I cannot do with the left button what I would expect to be able to do with the right button. For example, when things are operating correctly, then if I right click the Start menu, I get a menu that contains many options including Control Panel, shut down, and restart. If I switch buttons to make the right button the primary button, I do not get this menu by clicking on the left button. If I switch buttons back so that the left button is once again the primary button, then clicking on the right button gives me that menu. The left button still does nothing.

I have not yet been able to successfully boot into Safe mode. I'm still trying to get that to work.

Unless it is during the start up (where "....", white line, black page happens) it is always a solid colour on the screen.

#1 and #2 interest me as a possibility. I will fiddle around with my internals to see if I made a connector insecure. I thought I made everything stable, but my computer is getting old; there is a chance that what I'd usually do is no longer suitable.

I'll update you after some time; as the only way to see if I fixed a problem is to run the computer for a day or so.

I looked in device manager and have this problem with the Generic SuperSpeed Usb hub. When I try to update the drivers it just tells me that Windows cannot load the driver for this device error code 31. I have attached a couple of files below. I tried right clicking on the Generic SuperSpeed hub and uninstalling, but it still comes back with the error. Thank you!
I wish I could give more feedback on what happens, it gets about 30% complete and then stops, saying there has been an error :/

Also, check the fan inside the power supply. And measure power supply temperatures with a real thermometer.
A power supply will shut down when the temperature inside it goes over a certain limit.

Taking a quick look at the product page, it supports .MP4 but not MKV for it's own video features, so given your MKV file remained unchanged, I suspect that the device itself may be internally cataloging supported file types, renaming them to a hash or something.

How to stop it though, I've not found anything on that. It's difficult to predict how these "Smart" External Hard Drives will behave sometimes, and any inbuilt functionality like this is definitely not well documented to the point of knowing how to prevent it in most cases.

Some file systems don't allow lengthy filenames. They trim it down and rename it. It may be one of those scenarios. But i'm not sure.

I'm missin something...why wouldn't they be re-connecting on re-boot ? ?

So is it normal to hear Usb's connecting each time you boot up a PC? I thought once devices were installed they stopped reconnecting each time you booted up the PC?

@DaveLembke - The PSU is a very good one it's a EVGA 1000 G2, I test the power using a different one and it's still the same.
