Can't exit Properties window for C drive after sharing

Q: Can't exit Properties window for C drive after sharing

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.

Preferred Solution: Can't exit Properties window for C drive after sharing

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.)

The problem is when I right click on the hard drive in "My Computer", and click on either properties or sharing, nothing happens.
I have looked at other forums which say to run scan disk and virus scan. I have done that. I was able to run scan disk from dos. I keep getting no errors/viruses, but I still can't share or view properties. I was also able to start the computer in safe mode, start scan disk, reboot and have it run scan disk in dos mode. This still didn't work. I ran Fix-It Utilities 2000 and it still isn't fixed.

Try this Start/Run type: gpedit.msc

Do the same for "User Configuration"

All my hard drives are tested as having no errors in "scan disk", but when attempting to make new folder and "renaming it", or when attempting to do a "properties" on any of my disks ... both cause the windows browser window to crash, and disappear.

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3

I've run everything, including combofix

Hello hepplewhite212,

Could you please give me just a tad more info please? When did this start? And, do you happen to use Firefox? I see you ran ComboFix, but it looks like this started before you did so I'd like to rule that out for sure as well.

Thanks,

A:Folder sharing / Properties problems in XP

Have you tried sharing through the computer management msc?

Go to run and type compmgmt.msc and click ok.
Expand the shared folders
Right click on Shares and click New File Share

A file/folder shareing wizard should popup just file in the fields for what you want to share.

Hope this helps.

If I change the folder properties accessing a shared folder (say pictures) over my home network, will it alter the folder's properties on the drive on which it resides or just the folder on the machine I am using to access the folder?

I am accessing my pictures folder on my desktop from my laptop from the other side of my house. The pictures and videos folders are set to "general items", the customize tab of the properties on the folder is set to "general items" when I access it from the laptop. If I switch the pictures to "pictures" and videos to "videos" on the laptop, will it alter the folder in the desktop on which the folder resides?

Hope this is clear enough, Thanks for any help, I have a hard time with sharing and permissions.

A:Folder properties when sharing over network

If you are able to connect to the folder, either locally or over the network, and managed to change it, then it will or should be changed. I'm sure you are not referring to doing ith with different user profiles, right? Best way is to try it and find out

Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

I couldn?t figure out the difference between sharing a particular folder and granting security control on it. Are these two options doing the same kind of work (attached)?

What might be the critical difference between sharing a folder and granting security control on it?

Thank you very much

Best

Jamal

A:Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

When you share a folder or drive you give people on computers other than which the share is located access to objects within that folder or drive.

Share permissions determine what a user can do with the SHARE itself. Granting full control to a share is generally not recommended. A general rule of thumb is that you grant only the permissions required for the access needed and no more.

The security permissions determine what a user can do with oibjects WITHIN the share. Again, you would generally not grant full control, as this allows the user to take ownership, delete everything, and change permissions and could even lock everyone else out of access to the objects within that share.

I have a server with 15TB of storage. On it we have our personal folders. They are centralised for backup and purposes. The shares are called Tanya, Peyton, Trent and Public. Each share has a permission of CHANGE.

The security for these shares are set to allow access only to the person whose folder it is. Eg Peyton has Modify rights to his folder, but no one else can access it, except the administrator, and only from the server. The public folder has USERS(modify), so that we can all acess stuff in that folder.

So, SHARE permissions determine what can be done with a SHARE, and security permissions determine what can be done with files, folders, and other objects that are stored ON THAT SHARE.

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?".

When I insert a CD in either of my two drives the window that jumps up giving me the options of what program to use (CD Properties ) is maximized and takes up the whole screen. This just started happening. If I double click on the top blue titlebarlbar it goes back to it's smaller (normal) size. I tried holding down the ctrl. key and closing the window but the next time the computer boots it does the same thing. It is not possible to drag this type of window in any way. The only option for this type of window in the upper right corner is an X to close it. It may need a registry edit but I don't know how. To access a similar type window open "my computer, right click on any drive, the window that opens is the same type. Any help would be appreciated.

I am running WinXP, SP2. I have a Fellows Internet Touchpad installed. When I go to the Control Panel and select the Mouse, the standard Microsoft Mouse window opens instead of the Cirque Touchpad window. The mouse is identified correctly as a Cirque Ps2 Touchpad and the driver is correctly specified. The special functions of the touchpad are all working ok, however without being able to open up the correct properties window, I cannot make any changes. It used to work properly. I have tried uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling the touchpad driver. That does not fix it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

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 ...

I've had real trouble locating this particular window in Windows 10. The only way I can get to it is if I create a manual entry for a wireless network.

Hello. I have noticed a strange fact regarding my windows 7 32 bit operating system. When I delete some files in a folder, then go to properties, when i look at "Contains", it still shows the number of files i had before deletion, not the current number of files in that folder. Is there a way to repair this? Thanks in advance! (rebooted my pc, but with no success, if it is to mention)
BTW: Happy holidays

Did you empty the Recycle Bin?

I don't see a "Contains" choice in any folder property menu. Can you tell me how you get to it, as following the directions you gave does not show it for me.

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.
Start MSPaint - Start then Run, type mspaint and press Enter.
Press Ctrl+v to paste the picture in to MS Paint.
Click File then Save as and save it to your Desktop.

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'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 would appeciate if you help me to solve this problem.

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.

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!

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

*How this came about*
I tried to move my Music library, but instead of including the 'Music' folder in F:\ drive, I included the drive itself.
I promptly included the 'Music' folder in F:\ and set it as the default location, then removed F:\ from the Music library locations.

However...


Eh yeah, this looks embarrassing.



The 'normal' location is F:\ .



I've since deleted the 'Music' library twice and performed restarts for each attempt. None removed my F:\ drive from my 'Users' folder or removed the 'Locations' tab from the F:\ drive properties.

It's a minor technical problem but a major eyesore.

Of course it's possible, the only requirement is that they need to be sharing the same default gateway. This usually occurs automatically when connected to the modem-wireless router.

Other than that the permission settings will need some adjusting as usual.

I am trying to configure a home network to share printers and files, but for some reason one of my two computers cannot see the other. My laptop cannot see my desktop when I go to "Network" but it can see my other wireless devices. My desktop can see everything on the network, including the laptop. I have checked all the firewalls, including McAfee settings.

One thing that I found to be strange was that in Network Properties for my wireless network, the desktop shows "networking" AND "sharing" tabs, but the laptop is missing the "sharing" tab. I think that this might be the problem.

Also, I forgot to mention that the desktop can ping the laptop, but the laptop will not ping the desktop.

Do you use ICS? if not I would just remove the startup entry. If you need the OCS service running you will need to be enabled in "control Panel" - Administrative tools" - "Services".

After an upgrade from 98SE to XP, I cannot access the C drive properties (right-clicking C). File system still FAT32.

Before the upgrade, we unpartitioned the drive and had some FAT errors. C did not show full space. After the XP upgrade, we were able to capture the unallocated space back to C using Resize in PartitionMagic. But we were left with inability to right-click on C (it sends an error report to Microsoft and restarts Explorer).

Will a conversion to NTFS and the resulting new file table resolve the inability to access C properties?

I had a samsung hard drive originally in computer. Now have installed a seagate 200gb hard drive. My question is why won't the computer recognize the seagate 200gb? Instead the computer still recognizes the 64 gb samsung hard drive even though it is not installed. Where are all of my gbs? I have run the Flash Bios update that Was recommended by Compaq but after doing that come up with a Check sum issue. Would greatly appreciate any help here.
 

A:Properties for hard drive

OK, I probably can't get you past the check sum issue with the BIOS. And the answer to your problem may have something to do with the age of your computer. But I see you've been waiting a day so here are a few thoughts that might help.

The first thing I would do is boot up the machine and see if I can get into BIOS. If you can, tell the BIOS to redetect the primary drive - assuming you've replaced the old drive and not simply added a new one. Then save and your machine will restart. That's the quick and easy solution. And who knows? Will probably clear up the checksum problem. If this doesn't work...

Go to your manufacturer's site (like Dell, Gateway, eMachine (also Gateway), HP...). In your case Compaq? The site should have your original set up, but you have to know your model number or serial number or order number, etc. If your machine is old you may have to look in the Archived support area. But from your note, you may be past that. You should be able to get all the specs, including the BIOS manufacturer here. The user's manual may have a way to clear/reset BIOS via a jumper setting. (I THINK that's right.)

When you flash the BIOS, you have to be very careful and follow instructions exactly. Depending on which BIOS you have (Award, Phoenix, AMI, etc.) you may be able to get help on their site if not Compaq's.

Now, as to the HD, you need to have the correct cable, it needs to be attached properly, and your machine needs to be able to handle it. You may not have this problem but here's a very nice (old) site that explains:
http://www.mikeshardware.com/howtos/howto_connect_ide_hd.html

Also, with cable select (CS) the problem of setting up the BIOS should be gone. But if you have a very old machine, you may need to go into the BIOS and specify your new drive. Also, I believe some older machines simply can not handle large drives. I don't know if simply upgrading the BIOS can overcome this. It has something to do with HD sectors and that's all I know. (I think there's also something weird about Compaqs?)

I think that should cover it. But to get better help, post your system specs. At least the type of Compaq. BIOS name and version, number of drives: DVD, CD, HD.

Good luck.

Seriously, the Indexing Service can make searching easier, but on a slow machine, because the indexing goes a bit overboard, it can slow things down. On a reasonably powerful machine it is worth having it on and programs shouldn't be affected by it much. If you notice a reduction in performance, it's time to think about upgrading.

Here is a strange problem and it really doesn't bother me until I need to change directory sharing or something.

I am running Windows 2000 SP2. If I right click a drive or directory and choose properties, nothing happens. It used to work just fine and I am not sure what exactly happened. I was wondering if anybody has any ideas. I was thinking that the properties dialog box is an API call from a .dll but what .dll is the question. Any help would be great.

Thanks

When I right-click a drive and select 'properties' in Windows Explorer, it crashes. It doesn't matter what the drive is (flash, external, internal)..

Can I fix this?

A:Windows Explorer crashes on drive 'properties'

3dpiper,
Now that is a new one to me.

When I find something that strange on a person's computer, then I run MalwareBytes and Microsoft Security Essentials.

Alghough you might want to try running SFC /SCANNOW from an elevated command prompt.

Keep running SFC until you get a clean bill of health from the program.

Here are a link:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

And here is a how-to:

A:Employment Tribunal, K Drive & document properties!

Hi maddal1ne,

Just a guess here, going by the path name, that the file in questions was sent to someone as an email attachment and then fowarded to you. Assuming this, it is is a probable location for a mail program to save attachments.

It is unlikely that the drive letter has any significance.

Something utterly strange and annoying has happened to my external 2TB hard drive. All of a sudden, I can see the drive in 'My Computer' but have no permissions to access it in Explorer.

Additionally, when i try to right-click and take ownership, that's not an option. And when i do open the properties for the drive, there is no Security tab where I can change owners/permissions.

The odd thing about it -- as if that weren't enough -- is that I can still access (view) the files on that drive if I do it through an application (like VLC) that has already a 'recently played' list, etc.

I have also run chkdsk and it reports no errors.

HELP, PLEASE!

Quite often when copying an EXE file to thumb drive I get this alert

What does it mean. I have not had any install problems so far.

Thank you

A:Lost EXE file properties while copying to a thumb drive

Every file has properties attached to it. Basically , it's information about the file, like this:



In the case of the EXE file above, there isn't much to worry about if they are lost when they are copied. The only time that properties really cause a problem is when you lose the information from photographs and documents. The information may be used by other programs to load information, or to show information about the file.

Basically, Windows is just telling you that the properties will not be copied with the file, and it's checking to see if it's OK with you if they get lost in the copy. It isn't usually a cause for concern.

A:Changing the drive lettering in numerous shortcut's properties

I might. It would have to wait until the week-end, as I don't have time during the week. I think it would be much easier to code than to script. Would you be happy with a small .net .exe UI containing current Drive Letter of the EHD to modify the shortcuts on, and then a from and to Drive Letters? You would have to remember that it is for ALL shortcuts, no exceptions.

This morning I attempted to view the properties of one of my drive in Windows explorer. Properties is a selection on the context menu, but clicking it does absolutely nothing. I have 3 drive in my system and the same behavior is true for all of them.

Anyone have a clue on this one?

A:very strange drive properties display have me concerned about malware

Sorry if this is a little late, and not very specific, but the display you're seeing is malware related. About 3 weeks ago, I had a customer's pen drive which had been provided to me to restore some backup files to a new hard drive. When I tried to stop the drive before removing it,my Windows 7 system notification area displayed the drive with a rainbow icon and a string of Chinese characters very similar to what your system properties picture shows.

I did full scans with an updated Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and NOD32, which detected and removed 1 infection. The bug detected by NOD32, was one of those generic identifications that wasn't very helpful.

So, here I am, confident you have malware on the drive, but unable to identify it or the risks it poses.
