Preferred Solution: properties window question

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Since I am new to the forum I'm not sure where my problem should be posted I am also not sure if it is a hardware or software related problem but here it is Suddenly when I try to appear window properties does Print dialog not print the print properties dialog window does not appear when i click on the Print properties dialog window does not appear properties button Print properties dialog window does not appear It tries to activate but immediately reverts back to the print window This occurs in both OpenOffice and LibreOffice both of which have previously worked fine for months I often print to both sides of the page echo print but can only print on one side default since I cannot change the properties The only thing I can recall that might have any bearing on the problem is that I had previously printed to a file - something I rarely do I checked the settings and quot print to file quot is not selected I am printing to a HP LaserJet Pro M MFP series PCL printer and am using Windows operating system I have tried reinstalling both word processing programs and have reset the printer to default settings and updated If anyone can help with this problem I would greatly appreciate your help

A:Print properties dialog window does not appear

Printers can be very frustrating to say the least. When I've had printer problems in the past, this is what has worked for me:

1. Unplug the power to the printer
2. Wait about 30 seconds or so
3. Plug it in and let it go through it's initialization
4. Then try it again

If that doesn't work, try reloading the printer driver from the HP site. If it still doesn't work, try a system restore back to the last time the printer was working successfully. That's about all the tricks I know for printers. Hope it helps ...

Maybe post a screen shot of it? Make sure the window you want to capture has the focus.
Press Alt+Print Screen. That will capture the active window.
Print Screen will capture the entire screen, including properties dialogs.

A:Keep Getting Ise32 Properties Window On Startup

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.IMPORTANT NOTE: ise32.exe is related to the family of worms and IRC backdoor Trojans. Backdoor Trojans, IRCBots and Infostealers are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. Read Danger: Remote Access Trojans.If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud? Although the backdoor Trojan was identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the backdoor Trojan has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read "When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?" and "Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?".

A:Window Sys32 Properties Appears On Opening

The System32 folder opens at startup because of a corrupt system registry value. The value could have been corrupted for a number of reasons to include malware or installing/uninstalling a program from the Internet which did not install/uninstall itself properly.Click on the link below:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #260 and click "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" in the right column. You will be prompted to download xp_systems32opens.vbs. Save the file to your desktop and double-click on it to run the script. Since the script modifies certain registry settings you may receive an alert from your anti-virus or any script blocking program. Ignore the warning and allow it to continue.The problem could also be caused by empty run entries in your startup shortcuts which will open the system32 folder. Check the startup run registry entries and remove those entries. See System32 Folder Opens When Logging on to Windows.These steps involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

I've been fighting properties window since I installed window 10...
I use this function a lot. The problem is the properties window opens in the background.
So I have to minimize all the windows I have open to see the properties window.
The weird thing is the properties window is the only one that does that, When I open a new
window of anything it opens in the forground.
Is there a way to force the properties window open in the forground...Thanks...

I have a large number of files which I am changing the naming convention for in the Title detail and am getting frustrated having to right click for properties and anvigate tabs ebfore being able to change each one. I can see the Title of the files in the Details view of the folder they are in, but there cannot find a way to edit them in that view other than the manner previosuly stated.

That being said, does anyone know of a workaround that would allow me to change each title without aving to jump through hoops to edit them?

Thanks in advance.

A:Wish to edit detail properties of files in window

Welcome to the Forums Clockwork,

So if I get it correctly you want to rename multiple files at once?
If so, go to the folder they are located in, click anywhere in the folder, hit crtl and a at the same time to select all the files and then hit F2

After that you'll see that the name banner of the first file in the folder turned empty. You can now type the name you want it to have in, and hit enter. It will change all the files to that name, followed up by a number.
Hope that that helps!

I turned on sharing for the C drive and added an Everyone group in Security to allow access to my other computer on my network. When I go to close the Properties window I a message that says "You are about to change the permissions settings on the root directory of the startup disk which can result in unexpected access problems and reduce security. Do you want to continue?".

I answered yes and it went through all the folders and gave an access denied message on system folders. After if was done I got the same message mentioned when I tried to exit the Properties window. So I removed sharing and the Everyone group. But I'm still in the same situation. I keep going through the same loop and can not exit the Properties window.

Hi everyone!
 
I tried to ignore this problem, but it has become increasingly frustrating when I have to work with files in Windows Explorer.
 
The problem is, when I right-click on a file and choose Properties, it takes 5-8 seconds to open the File Properties Window. Strangely, when I do the same with folders (Folder Properties) the window opens almost instantaneously as it should. I have tried to fiddle around with ShellExView but to no avail - after all, I assume that program is just for controlling context menu entries. I searched and googled but I couldn't find any similar problems, the closest I got was that software.
 
Do you know what's the problem? Thanks in advance! 

A:Windows Explorer takes 5-8 seconds to open a File Properties window!

You can keep disabling more non-microsoft extensions in shellexview and see if any of them are causing it (do a system backup first)

Hi. I'm on Windows XP Home.

I would like to prevent an installer from deleting files that it puts in a particular folder. Is this possible? The installer encounters an error at the end of the process and deletes everything. It was suggested to me that if I could find a way to "keep" the files, I would be able to get things working.

Any ideas?

Thanks..

The only thing that I've seen, if you copy the file, the copy will get a new created date. The same when downloading from your camera. Move the files(not a good idea) and the date the photo was taken is the Created Date. Copy them and you get today's date.

A:Windows 8 - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. [OK]

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

I hate that about Microsoft. They only let you activate a limited number of time. For someone who plays with and breaks their operating system all the time, it's very inconvenient. In the future, save your activation key.
http://netsecurity.about.com/od/wind...twinxp0829.htm
This isn't a hack or anything, and will definitely not work if you were installing on a different computer. But it would save you the hassle of re-activating (and using up your number of valid activations left) whenever you format because of malware or something.

The rest of your question: it depends. Did the Windows CD come with the computer when you bought it (for example from a big company like Dell or HP). If yes, then you can't swap. Those are OEM versions and are tied to the computer they're used on (until its "death"), and can't be installed on any other computer. If the CD was an upgrade or full product version, then yes you can install it on another computer (but you can never have it on two different computers at the same time). And when I say the installation can't be on 2 diff computers at the same time, I mean the product key.

If you're wondering which CD you have, insert it in the CD-ROM drive then open my computer. If the label says OEM then it's OEM. If it's FPP it's full retail version, and if it's CCP, then it's upgrade. Notice also that keys for different version don't work in other versions.

I would think that would suffice as I have not seen an update in a little while.
Doing it everyday while not using it is just gonna create too much unnecessary work in my opinion. Can't really hurt, but just might get annoying constantly checking for updates that aren't there. Just a thought.

I develop and maintain a few websites for friends. I have a 19" monitor and would like to be able to resize the and/screen or Firefox to see what a web-page looks like in other screen sizes. Such as 17", 15", 12" and wide aspect.

Anyone know if I can do that within the win2000 operating system? I am using an Intel graphics card with the Intel desktop manipulating software but cannot find anything for setting screen size to emulate different sized monitors.

Thanks for any help.

Dave

On the My Computer Window, things were shifted around (Which I had not done). Such as the folders were under the drives (Not above it) and the placement of the C drive and D drive were moved. (Still under my computer. Just shifted). A system restore bought them back to their right places. Just wondering why it happened.

A:My Computer Window (Question)

More than likely it was the view that it was on. You can change this setting very easily by going up to the View menu. There are options depending on the operating system you are using. Options for XP are: Thumbnails, Tiles, Icons, List, and Details.

Also, the 'Arrange Icons by' under the 'View' Menu could have had something to do with it. There are options in there that could have changed.

Currently my PC got window genuine,if I formatted my PC without make any backup.

Then the window genuine also will gone or it still keep in PC after formatted ?

Before I create this topic,I know this is a dumb question,but I tried search google but I didn't found an answer for this question

A:Window genuine question

Genuine means you have a valid license for Windows, and that it is activated by Microsoft.

If you format your hard disk, your entire OS disappears, so no question of genuineness or otherwise.

If you reinstall Windows, and enter the product key again, and activate it, then it will be genuine again. As long as your hardware is the same (you just format and reinstall), all licenses of Windows should be valid on your new install as well.

Hope this helps!

A:Question about Window XP's CPU Usage graph

It sounds like this is a variable speed cpu where when there is less demand it throttles back to a slower speed to conserve power, decrease heat output , and lengthen the life expectancy of the processor.
Thus you see one line indicating that the cpu is using all available cycles, but a second indicating that that is only a fraction of its true potential.

Variable speed processors were originated for laptops, but are now often seen in PCs .

Yeah, I am going to switch my protection package soon to the recommended one later. However I was wondering, the only update I had today was a window definition update but oddly enough it ended up taking 4-5 gb of memory. I don't really mind much due to my system still having 195 gb worth of memory left. But I do find it odd that a update in definition can take up 4-5 gb of memory. Is that normal?

A:Window Defender Update Question

You are getting things a bit mixed up I think.
It is not possible to have that much memory.
What you are quoting is the Hard Drive Storage.
Memory is RAM. If you go to Control Panel, System it will tell you how much RAM your system has.

Im using Visual Studio .NET C# and am trying to write my own Menu Icons class simply for educational purposes. So far everything looks straightforward however I find that even overriding the OwnerDraw method for each menu item there still is a 3D Menu window that appears as a canvas for the menu items to appear on. The look im going for is a Visual Studio .NET 2003 menu which appears to have a "flat" non-3D window canvas. How do i make this canvas flat?

I suspect i have to make use of the Main Menu's "handle" property as well as Win32 API, perhaps even subclassing. If this is the case could this completely damage the managed code of C# I'm currently working with?

A:Outlook 2003 Email Window Question

It acts just like IE.
If you click and drag the open window to size by the corners and edges, then use File>Close instead of the X in the upper right hand corner, it should "remember" and stay that way the next time it's opened. From then on, you can go back to the quick close X.
You'll have to do it for each type of window open in outlook. (i.e Send, Receive, Reply, etc).

I have a few questions relating to the license terms for the Free Windows 10 Upgrade from 7.
1) Does the license require that Window 7 be replaced on the computer with Windows 10? For example, can I create an image of my existing Win 7 system, recover it to a second hard drive and then upgrade that second HD to Win 10? This would permit access to either operating system at a time albeit requiring a switch of drives.
2) Does the license permit a dual boot with the original Win 7 and a clean install of Windows 10?
3) If either of these is allowed by the license terms, are there any issues with activation?
Thanks for any help you can provide.​

A:Window 10 Free Upgrade License Question

If Windows 7 and Windows 10 are on two different physical hard drives, and only one hard drive is physically connected to the computer at a time, I don't think that violates the EULA.

It violates the EULA to dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 10 with only one license. You do not get an extra license for a second Windows with the upgrade.

I don't think you would have any issues with activation if you switched out hard drives.

Hi everyone. I have a problem and I'll be thankful to anyone who'll offer a solution, if there's one.
So: I'm a user of Windows 8.1. Since I'm a Hebrew speaker, most of my programs' upper menu lines are written from right to left. The problem is the three basic window commands (close, enlarge, minimize) are displayed on the left side of the window, and that really disrupts the fluidity operating the system. Is there any way to change it and set
right-appearing window-commands as default? tried fiddling with preferences myself but couldn't find such an option.

Thank you again for your time and effort.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh
