Searching by file type, showing files that are not that type?

Q: Searching by file type, showing files that are not that type?

How do I search a directory for a file type, and have it only show files that aren't that file type.
For example, searching a directory for only .jpg, and have the search only show files that are not .jpg, such as .txt, .png, etc.

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.)

Some of the thumbnails aren't showing up windows explorer even though they are the same file type. There will be 12 episodes of a show in .AVI or .MKV, and only 9 will have thumbnails, the other 3 don't. I have the Haali Media Splitter on to show thumbnails and I installed the Windows Service Pack to to it too (not sure which one is actually working, if I had to guess I'd say it's Haali).

To enable the thumbnails on Haali Media Splitter I click it, the went: options → explorer integration → show thumbnails (yes) → thumbnails offset (10000)

Not sure what is wrong...can anyone help?

And this is a problem with pretty much all the file types, some thumbnails showing and some not when they're in the same folder and I got them from the same source (all the files in a folder are either AVI or MKV, but the problem happens with both)

Hello all,
This is my first post on the forum 
The problem is this:  I have been finding files all over my computer with type "deealster."  This seems like it could be some kind of malware, but I have not found anything referencing this anywhere!  Though it does look like people have had issues with something called "dealster" (one "e") before. 
 
Example:  In my Web/JSF project folder (Project>build>web>WEB-INF>classes) there is a file called "_netbeans_update_build" and another called, "_netbeans_update_resources" both of file type "deealster."
 
I also see a lot of these types in my glassfish folders.
 
Like I said, I could not find anything when I googled this, which is actually one of the reasons I believe this might be something malicious.
 
Anyone else have a clue?

I have noticed that the file type icons aren't showing in explorer, while little it is extremely annoying as when searching for an excel document for example I just look for the icon.

Is there a way to search specifically for files that are hidden?

I've got a several folders with a mix of hidden files, that I want to get rid of, and non-hidden files, that I want to keep.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

A:Searching files by type: "hidden"

Hi BoBzzz. . .

Welcome back to TSF.

I would use a back door entrance for this one as Windows Explorer within Vista can be especially restrictive. First, let's get you a listing of the folders/files involved (that have the H = hidden file attribute).

Issue the following commands from an Elevated command prompt ("DOS" prompt) - I will use the \users\Default folder for this example and get a listing of all of the hidden files in this directory (folder) and all sub-directories (sub-folders) and files within:

START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe above under Programs | select run as Administrator. . . and the black DOS screen should appear with the prompt reading C:\Windows\system32>_ - type the following and hit enter after each line:


Code:

cd \users\default

dir *.* /a:h /q /s > %userprofile%\documents\$file-list1.txt


The file named $file-list1.txt should be in your documents folder.

Legend:

Code:

dir = directory listing

*.* = all directories/files. Change this if you wish. If looking for mp3 files, the mask would then be *.mp3 - if looking for mp3 & mp4 files beginning with the letter A = a*.mp* - the asterisk is a mask which equals any number of characters

/a:h = list only hidden files - those with an H file attribute

/q = display the owner of the file (in case file permissions enter in here)

/s = display all files found within the current directory and all sub-directories of it


If you can provide a few examples containing file names and folder location (the path - e.g., c:\users\YOUR_USER_NAME\Music = your music folder), I will gladly provide you with the commands to delete the files (we will use the del command - but be careful!). Also, if you need any help interpreting the output, please post back and attach the entire text file.

Regards. . .

I was playing around on my computer with regedit.exe, I found file type .exe and clicked it. There were two files (looks like a piece of paper torn in half with red letters "ab" on it), I right clicked the first, went to modify, and changed the value from "exefile" to "C:\Users\Stewy\Pictures\green.ico" just to see what would happen. Then, I logged off and back on, and all my .exe files looked like the default file icon (just a piece of paper), and when I clicked them, nothing happened. I only got on the internet through a shortcut to a website I had previously made. When I right-click the .exe files, and go to properties, then the details tab, it says "Type: C:\Users\Stewy\Pictures\green.ico", how can I change it back to" exefile" if I can't open regedit.exe?

Thank you,

Files with no extension are now listed as file type "savingtoyou", They should be file type "file"  How do I fix that?
 
I have found some guides to change the file type of all files with a specific extension, but this is for all files with no extension.
 
This symptom appears to be a result of a malware infection, but I have already cleaned it out with mse, hitman, adwcleaner, mbam, and jrt. That doesn't fix the file type issue though.

In Windows XP, Explorer I was able to select multiple files of different file types, right click and select print. In Win 7 64 bit print is not a choice when I select multiple files of different types. Is there a way to make this work or is it just an option that was left out of Win 7 for some reason?

A:Printing multiple files of different file type

You could try creating a shortcut to the printer in the 'Send To' folder:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo.

You'll likely have to unhide hidden files and/or show Operating system files:

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

I think that should work, although I haven't tried it myself. This places the printer in the Send To (right click) context menu. You just right click on the selected files, choose Send To, choose the printer.

A:all files changed to file type html after fbi virus

Download decrypt_mblblock.exe to your desktop.The complete usage instructions and video can be found here.If you only have a single hard disk with one partition, then only thing you need to do is start the tool.Windows XP users can simply double click and run the tool, Windows Vista, 7 & 8 users need to run the tool with administrator rights.Now it will automatically scan your complete hard disk for encrypted files, when there are encrypted files present it will automatically decrypt those without deleting the encrypted originals.After the decryption check that all of the decrypted files open properly.Once you have verified that the files were decrypted properly you can delete the encrypted HTML files.If you have more than one hard disk or partitions with encrypted files, things get slightly more complicated. To scan and decrypt files on those other hard disks or partitions do the following:While holding down the Windows key now press the R key. The Run Box will now appear.In the Run box Type in cmd.exe and press Enter.The Windows Command Line prompt should show up.You first need to switch into the directory where you downloaded the decryption tool to.This can be done using the cd command: cd /d <path>Just replace <path> with the path you downloaded the decryption tool to. If you downloaded it to C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads for example the exact command line to type in should look like this:cd /d C:\Users\Administrator\DownloadsIf you did everything right you will see that the command prompt changed slightly and now references the download directory.Run the decryption tool with a list of all your drives you want the tool to scan. If you have a C:, D: and E: drive for example, run the tool like this:decrypt_mblblock.exe C:\ D:\ E:\Please be patient and refrain from using the computer for other tasks while the tool is runningLet me know how it workedGringo

What I'm running into is a problem trying to add a handler for any file to the context menu. I add a key to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell and add a key to that as command. What happens is, instead of just running the program with filename as param, I get a dialog "always use this program for this file type" with a checkbox checked, or "keep using blah blah"

If I uncheck the box and hit Enter, nothing happens. So I can't run an "all files" handler without assigning it to every file type I happen to open with it. I'm sure the registry is a big mess.

What did they change since Windows Seven? I don't get it.

I work for a company that uses laptops for testing. I have to setup around 10 at time usually. I am trying to come up with an effective way to scan these computers for viruses when they return to the office. The catch is I have to find something that doesn't install any software on the machine. What would honestly be perfect for me would be something that works like McAfee free scan. The computers have an internet connection while I configure them so if I had something like that running on one of our webservers, or it's own dedicated server so the server would update with definitions as they were available. The free scan installs an Active X control which is perfectly fine. I just can't install Norton or AVG or anything like that. Does anyone know of anything like that?

Thanks

Hi Everyone, I was working on my friends laptop that had a virus. I'm not sure what it was but we ended up backing up the info in the user folder (Pictures, Docs, etc...) and reinstalling Windows 7.
The computer is working fine but, seemingly, all the files I back up now have an added ".tatsyfc" at the end of them, making the computer thing that ",tatsyfc" is a file type. Even after deleting the ,tatsyfc and typing the correct file type (PDF, DOCX, JPEG, etc..) the files won't work, citing corruption. 
I've removed many viruses before but haven't encountered this yet.
 
Any information that could help me resolve this would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance :D

A:Weird file type extension on files due to virus .TATSYFC

The newest variants of CTB Locker typically encrypt all data files and rename them as a file with a 6-7 length extension with random characters. The newer variants also do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background, like it generally does. Compounding matters, the newer CTB-Locker infection has been seen in combination with KEYHolder, Torrent Locker (fake Cryptolocker) or Cryptowall ransomware. Unfortunately, there is still no known method of decrypting your files without paying the ransom and with dual infections, that means paying both ransoms.A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQThere is also an ongoing discussion in this topic: CTB Locker or DecryptAllFiles.txt Encrypting Ransomware Support & Discussion. Rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.ThanksThe BC Staff

Hi All,

In IE9 or IE11, when I try to download a .zip file it downloads fine but is not getting recognized by WinRAR. There is no extension and Windows doesn't know what to do with this. The same file gets downloaded fine and is recognized if downloaded from Chrome
or Firefox.

I want to know what settings in IE(if any) might be causing this?

It is important there are many systems on IE and can't immediately shift to any alternate browser.



When downloaded from Firefox this file recognizes its original extension;

The same file when downloaded from IE 11 doesn't recognize its Extension. 

The same behavior occurs for any file downloaded from any source.

I have narrowed it down and found that it is because we are downloading it via an Apache layer. If I try the same download via a localhost (no Apache
layer), it gets downloaded easily.


Please advise.

I haven't figured out how to get rid of it.. i don't see anything I set in ease of access.  it's making like s a squish sound every few letter i type.  it doesn't do it like for every letter.  it's not when i touch the mouse pad either.  please give me some ideas on how this happened..??

A:Inspiron. I don't know what settings I screw up on but when i type I hear like a squishing sound on every so many letters i type.

Always include your model name and number as well as the operating system when posting a question. Also include a clearer explanation of the problem.

Hello angelgabbby I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Scan.After the scan is complete click on "Clean"Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.-Junkware-Removal-Tool-Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

I set up an Outlook account on a new-to-me laptop I had been Is device? default type type of deteremined email by account unable to download email for several months since I didn't have a computer I had been saving the emails I wanted to keep and had planned on downloading them into my new computer After setting up the account it appeared the system automatically downloaded Is default email account type deteremined by type of device? all of my email from the server I know this is default behavior which I turn off So I went through that process double-checked to see that all the email was downloaded and went out to my server I discovered that what I thought were copies of the emails were left on the servier I didn't want that to happen I dug around to find the location that I have used many times to do this and couldn't remember or find the location to make this change So I came to Seven Forums I saw the step-by-step instructions go to the account select it click change click advanced and uncheck the box that says quot Leave a copy of email on server quot When I went to the advanced dialog box for changing accounts I discovered there wasn't any such box I dug around some more decided to subscribe here and ask why mine was different In the mean time since all the email was downloaded to my computer I went back out to my server deleted all the email and purged the trash Then I went back to my Oullook and discovered all the email that I had quot downloaded quot was gone After digging some more and callling my ISP service desk I discovered that I had set up an IMAP account rather than a POP account There was no place to change this in this account so I deleted the account and went through the process again When I got to the account type the only types showing were IMAP and exchange There may have been another option but the important thing is that POP was not one of the options Down at the bottom of the screen was a checkbox to allow custom set up I checked that and discovered there the POP choice I clicked that and the account behaved as I want deleting copies of emails from the server as they are actually downloaded I have set up several Outlook accounts on various computers before This is the first time I have ever had this happen I have never seen the IMAP as a default before but this is also the first time I have installed it on a laptop Was it this way BECAUSE I was adding the account on a laptop There was another account on the computer which I deleted and it was a POP account so it wasn't some sort of previous setting that just followed over All I know for sure is that having this as default cost me a bunch of time and effort and some extremely important emails Any feedback besides quot Pay closer attention to what your various screens say when you are setting up an account dummy quot

A:Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, what version(s)?
Also, who is the email provider such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, MS, ...?

Did you use a multilayer icon or a single layer icon? Put the icon that you used in a zip folder and post it here so I can look at them.

I have a ECS A790GXM-A (no tweaks) and and AMD 940 Black Edition processor. I had the original BIOS and just updated it to the latest version. Both show in device manager as AMD and processor type unknown. I just tried the chip in a ASUS motherboard (ASUS M3A78-T) same AMD 790 chipset and loaded the drivers from the ASUS cd and the processor shows up correctly and runs a awful lot faster than the ECS board. Anyone experianced this? Is there a problem with the board?

It's recommended to update the BIOS then install Windows (not the other way around)

A:What Type Of File Is This??

These files are part of an archive that have been split up. I use WinRar to extract the contents of split archives. Just right click the first file of the archive (.001) and select open with and select WinRar from the list of programs. When WinRar opens you then need to extract the contents to the location of your choice. Every archive I've ever extracted using this method has resulted in a BIN and ISO file that can be burned using Nero or other CD buring software. I'm not sure if Winzip will work but you can give it a shot.

2. Select Tools/Folder Options/File Types.
3. Click New.
4. Type the file extension into
"File Extension."
5. Click OK.
6. Click Advanced, then New.
7. Type open into the "Action" field.
8. Type in the path of the .EXE file (such as notepad) in
"Application used to perform action."
either by typing in a new path or
selecting Browse, locating and double
clicking the .EXE file.
9. Click 'Apply' >> 'OK'.

See if you can open the file.

You would be better off using third party software that already does this. Plenty of them out there.
I personally would check the extension of each file using the cmd extensions of a for loop. then do an if statement for each file type you want to keep track of. then use a call statement to branch to a function that adds up the file sizes and number of files.

A:winfax pro 9.0 - file type

What's the file extension on the fax? You could make a screen capture of it. Open the fax and then hit the print screen key. Then open windows paint and click on edit--paste to paste the image into it. Then click file--save as and save it as a .jpeg. Then open that file into a photo editor such as Irfanview (which is free) and crop it to how you want it to look and then resave it. The only problem with that is you may have to make more than one screen capture to get an image of the entire fax if it's not all shown on screen when you hit the print screen key. You can however make two images and then paste the two together and resave them as one in virtually any photo editor. The reason I asked for the file extension is that maybe Irfanview can open it. If that's the case then you can resave it as a .jpeg in that program.

If you want a screen capture program that can scroll to capture the entire screen then use Snagit. It's the only one I know of that can scroll and capture the whole screen but it's not free.

I have just received an email with two attachments. Both are docx. I am very reluctant to try to find a program to open them, because the last time I tried it, I accidentally downloaded some malware, and got a real ear bashing from one of your advisors. could anyone point me to a safe download to open these, apparently new, attachments.

Those are later format Word files so they should open in your Office document program or a Word viewer.

What the title says - see screen shots Be aware that is NOT just an issue with ZIP files - its an issue with the Choose default program option on EVERY file type I tried the Remove amp Restore Open With registry patches from here and rebooted - didn't fix I tried minimal Safe Boot - still exists to Open Can't for add type With any file I tried the Default Programs Editor - same error message - NB I've been using this for years long before this problem showed up Can't add to Open With for any file type I tried sfc scannow and System Restore back to a few days ago - no luck I'm not sure what broke it - I don't use the Choose default program very often so it could have been like this for a while as in a few months not more than six though Aside If you're wondering why I have Firefox in the Open With for zips I'm damned if I know why would I wanna do that I Can't add to Open With for any file type ask myself But I would have added Peazip as it's my secondary archiver pjd

A:Can't add to Open With for any file type

I did a restore from my oldest (Dec 14 2013) system backup (macrium) looks like the problem was there then. I installed a couple of new things on October, gut feeling says it was one of them that caused this problem.

The next thing I'm thinking of trying is an inline repair of windows

Does anyone think an inline repair will NOT fix this problem - I'm not confident, but that's a gut feeling too.

I might as well do a new windows install to freshly formatted drive rather wast time on an inline repair and then find I have to do a fresh install anyway - I've not done a fresh install since I got this box in mid 2009.

(Specs: WinXP, 450 PIII, 512MB)
In file folders that contain a sizable number of image files, the icons take--what seems like--an unnecessarily long time to load. For example, if I have a folder containing roughly 100 JPGs at about 3-6 MB each. If I am viewing the folder via the Details View, it takes for ever for each of the Photoshop icons to load next to the adjoining JPGs. I do a lot of cataloging of files, so the Details view is the best choice for me.

Does this sound like a problem that a registry hack could fix--assign a generic icon file to all image types? I just don't know why it would take so long for the icons to load, and the process tends to hog memory. Could it be a Photoshop file-association problem? Never-the-less, the files open fine and there are no other problems.

Thanks for any thoughts / solutions.
 

A:file-type icons

Apparently Photoshop inserts a new function having to do with creating thumbnails of images that it is associated with. If you right click on a jpg or tif or similar and select Properties, you will see a tab called Photoshop Image. All you have to do is to uncheck the Generate Thumbnails box and this won't happen again for any of the filetypes that Photoshop is associate with.

Hi Guys,I have a bitmap image, and want to change to JPEG.
Did know,but memory escapes me.
Remember PAINT being mentioned.
Thanks for any tips.

Windows XP Home SP3.

A:Change File type Help.

Yes, MS Paint can do it. Open the file in MS Paint. Then click File > Save As. Under the file type, set it to JPEG and save the file with a name.

I have a simple question really, which doesn't appear to have a simple answer.

how does one go about opening a .PAT file?

All help greatly appreciated!

Thread has been moved to Vista/Windows 7 Support.

You will need Adobe Photoshop or Corel to open that .PAT file.

See, if this Free Utility will be able to open up your file.

I came across an old DVD with data on it. Most of the files have file extensions however two of them don't one is 600kb the other 300kb. Is there any way of figuring out what kind of files these are

A:How do I find out file type?

Not sure. Maybe see if Ubuntu (Live CD) recognizes file extensions for those.

The inf file type was associated with notepad so I deleted it and when I edit the file type and click OK and try to edit it again it comes up blank. When I close folder options and reopen it INF is gone. Ideas?

A:cannot define INF file type

Sounds like you have effectively deleted the file type, IMO.

You can add it back by creating a "new" file type (.inf) and designating Notepad as the program that opens such files.

[Windows 8.1 x64]

Hi

How do I change just the *name* of a file type - i.e. without changing the default program?

For example in Windows Explorer my Excel files are called "Microsoft Excel Worksheet". And my Word files are called "Microsoft Word Document".
However is I make the "Type" column in Windows Explorer narrow, then for both types of file all I can see is "Microsoft..."
[This is *profoundly* unhelpful - what arrogant vanity by Microsoft! Do they ever actually run usability trials on this stuff?]

So although I still want .XLSX files to open with Excel I want to change the name / description that appears in the Type column to just "Excel Worksheet" (or possibly "Excel Worksheet (Microsoft)" or similar)

Thanks

Is there a way of getting a URL put into a text file and changing the extension so it acts as a link to a web browser? If I recall, Internet Explorer used to store URLs in individual files, but I don't know if this is still the case. Can you help me?

A:Is there a type of file that contains a single URL?

It still works that way up to this day. Each favorite is in fact a separate file and those are just plain text files with the .url extension. When launching them on their own, they open the default browser with the address indicated within them.
Their content is trivial to understand:


Code:
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.google.com
Just that suffices. They must be named with a .url extension for them to work, doable with notepad.

.tmp is a temporary file extension. How does it change? Are you saying you save your file in My Documents or wherever, and a few hours later, you come back and its magically changed to .tmp?

Hello, I am running an Athlon 3000 XP SP3 Windows based system as a basic family PC. I have had very little problems until I recently tried to download a Plug In for Windows Media Player from MGTEK. The download box appears on screen and tells me that the file type is a WebLab Viewer Pro Molecule and when I try to open it or install I am prompted for the program to install it with and nothing seems to work. I then downloaded the Windows Installer 3.1 from Microsoft but all that happens is that I am told that I am running a superior version of the installer already. Any ideas or solutions for me?
