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.)

My usb icon does not show. Its not a big deal but it really annoys me when things dont work the way they are supposed to especially when they used to. This happened about a month ago. I turned on my laptop and bam, all of a sudden icons arent showing up and looking through forums i have fixed all but one. When i plug in any mass storage device (usb; flash drive, external hard drive, mp3 player) the icon shows a general icon as if the icon was missing. I have attatched a picture so you can see exactly what I am talking about. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be GREATLY appreciated.

I had to do a clean install on a new hard drive and since then have not been able to get my task bar balloons to show. For example, when using the Safely Remove Hardware icon, I don't get the Now Safe To Remove balloon. I only get a popping sound. When running a Mcafee virus scans, I can't view the scan progress when resting the cursor over the icon. I do get the identifying pop up and that is all. I've tried the log off and on tip but it didn't work. Can anyone help me?

On windows 8.1, my taskbar, one day, suddenly stopped displaying the audio icon on the taskbar. When I right click it, go to the properties, and click customize, it doesn't show the audio icon as an option. When I click, "turn system icons on or off," I can see the audio icon, but it is locked to off. I don't know where to look from here.

A:[SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

Method 1:
There is no option available in control panel volume settings to show volume icon like earlier operating system. In Windows 8 and 8.1 you can enable volume icon by modifying ?Turn system icons on or off? option.
Right click on or near time clock in notification area and select Properties.



Make sure Volume icon is set ?On? as shown below, if it were off, make it on to show volume icon.

If the above step hasn?t help, ?Restore default icon behaviors? which may bring back the missing icon.



This is the normal procedure to get back the volume icon. In case the Volume icon option ( on/off) grayed out and you can?t change it, then follow the method 2.

Method 2: If volume icon is missing and you can?t enable it from ?Turn system icons on or off? area, then that could be an issue with explorer process. The following two methods can solve the issue.
a) Kill the explorer.exe from Processes or Details tab under task manager. Find out all explorer.exe and kill them, make sure no explorer.exe is running in the task manager. After that, on the file menu select new process or Run (or new tasks), type ?explorer? and press OK. It will start the new explorer process. That should bring back the volume icon, if it hasn?t, redo the method 1

This method has brought back missing volume icon on my Windows 8.1 computer.
b) Registry modification- Its recommended to take a backup before modifying registry.
Open registry editor in Windows and find out;
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

After modifying registry keys, you need to kill and restart the explorer.exe process to take effect.

I hope one of the above method will fix your issue!

Hello!
I am running Windows 7 64bit on a Toshiba laptop.
As you see in the attached photo, the connections information icon shows "wireless connections are available" status even though I am connected! I am connected via hotspot (with a program called Connectify) to another laptop which has wired connection. I have no problems with the connection itself, but only with that status icon's wrong display.

This happend after I installed software for a bluetooth usb adapter. I have searched the web for the same problem and tried the suggested fixes: uninstalled the software, uninstalled the network adapters (wired and wireless), deleted iconchache.db file but none worked for me.
This problem is really driving me nuts so I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it!

Thanks!

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail.

If you are using Windows 7, you don't have to actually click the Show Desktop button at the bottom right corner (you can simply hover over it with your mouse cursor and in a second, you will see your desktop). When you move away from the button, your programs will be there again.

The above method is only if you just require to see the desktop. If you need to actually perform tasks on the desktop, you will need to click on the Show Desktop icon, but then you will need to re-open all your windows manually. I don't know of a program that would do this for you. Sorry.

A:Windows XP SP2 login Screen not showing and unable to open the system

Hi vedantadeshika


Have you tried to boot into Safe Mode yet? If not, try that. As the PC is powering up, start tapping the F8 continuously until you see the Safe Mode menu. Choose "Safe Mode" from the list. If you didn't password-protect your Administrator account, you might be able to start things in Safe Mode using that account, and from Add/Remove Programs remove your theme-altering programs. From the Start/Run box, you could also try typing msconfig ...And in that program disable theme software from running at startup.

Should that not work, see if you can get System Restore to run & use a restore point from before your theme-altering episode. Try the following instructions from the Microsoft Knowledge Base article --- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304449

I think you might want to make backups as soon as you can, too, if you have data that you cannot easily replace.

Best of luck

A:Problem: Can't open windows live mail without boxes showing up

You can do a "repair" install from Programs & Features of the Windows Live Essentials program. Just uncheck the install of new stuff and it should say it will do a repair of Windows Live Mail.

EDIT: If the repair doesn't seem to be working from Programs and Features you can go back to your original "wlsetup-web.exe" file that you downloaded from Microsoft. Don't download the version currently available unless you are ready to upgrade to the 2011 version (with the ribbon interface). Once again uncheck the new stuff and let it repair the old (Mail).

I've noticed that when my computer first boots up, Windows Defender opens almost immediately when I double-click the system tray icon, but after opening it the first time, subsequent attempts take ~10 seconds after double-clicking the icon.
Any ideas? I've already checked and it's not in the middle of a scan or anything. Also, I've opened Defender from the settings menu (there's a button that says "Open Windows Defender") and it opens instantaneously via this button even when it's opening slowly from the system tray.

Is this normal behavior or is something strange going on here? This is basically a completely fresh install of Win 10 and I'm pretty sure I don't have any viruses or malware going on...

Hello.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a problem with the webpage icon shortcut. When I go to a given program using Start > All Programs > any program with a link to their web page, the icon displayed is the default document icon %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll (1) and not the web browser icon IE or FF. I have to change these manually by finding the icon target and changing it for each program's webpage.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.

I also noticed that in my music folders all the albums had a pile of thumbnails everywhere in each individual folder also there's this "thumbs.db" file showing up in each individual folder.

A:Administrator Icon Not Showing Properly?

Hello Tim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This would be the UAC shield icon to let you know that you will be prompted by UAC if the item is opened.

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

If not, then see if setting UAC to "Never notify", apply, restart, then set UAC back to default settings, and restart may toggle the icon back.User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
If still not, then run a sfc /scannow command.

Hope this helps,

I don't understand much about it. How can I get rid of this PuTTY? I can't find it if look it up on the PC, as suggested in this thread I found: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/putty-rnd-shows-up-in-my-files.826903/#post-6714012

Can someone help? Thank you

Hi all.

Had a bizarre problem since installing Windows 7 that I'm hoping can be solved relatively easily.

The SD card icon in Explorer has always just shown up as a generic unknown file type icon.

I've tried rebuilding the icon caches and assigning an icon manually but neither has worked.

Apart from that everything is working spiffingly, it's just this one niggling issue that's stopping it from being perfect.

Hope someone can help.

Cheers.

Windows 7, using IE9. Dragging url to desktop to create shortcut seems to work EXCEPT the ison is a blank, default windows type icon. The icons did appear in the past and after the recent update the icon is the same default icon for all url shortcuts.

How can I return the icon to its original state?

Hi all,

So I'm having an issue with my Excel files only. For some reason the icon has changed to be a blue color and whenever I try to open the file it opens a notepad file.

Attached are some examples of the issue.





Thanks in advance for any insight you may have!

Have you tried this?
To reset any incorrect files in the operating system in Windows XP do this:
Click on Start > Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes) and Press Enter.
You will be asked to insert the Windows XP c.d.

The computer should reboot, if not, reboot and try it.

I've problems in the past with the Malware Defense and Antivirus Live malware programs and some others that required reformatting. I backed up a bunch of music on dvd-r by saving them as data discs and it loaded up no prob and passed all scans by avg free and malwarebytes. I went to load up my last dvd-r of pics from my daughter and the files showed up as an internet explorer "e" symbol instead of a folder. Don't know if it's anything to worry about.

Welcome to SF,

Check the browser's settings, remove or uncheck any proxy settings if found.
http://www.library.kent.edu/page/14299

Any Security Software installed - McAfee, Norton or similar?

If you are using any 3rd party utility manager to wireless connect, disable the WLAN Auto Config for Vista/Win7 from Control Panel's Services. Click on Start and type services.msc press enter, locate WLAN Auto Config and Disable. Otherwise, the WLAN Auto Config needs to be Started if you're using Windows WZC.

If it's still an issue please provide an ipconfig /all of your computer.
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd press enter (run as Admin). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results here.

Both Windows Vista and Windows XP have a well-hidden ability to display thumbnail images with no labels This feature is probably Icon Labels Not Control In Panel... Showing most useful in a folder containing just pictures When Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... you invoke it by accident it can definitely make life difficult To display the contents of a folder as thumbnails with no filenames simply hold down a Shift key while switching the folder from Details view to Thumbnails view in XP or to one of the several Icons views in Vista In my experience this action is a bit less responsive in Vista you may have to try several times Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... But clearly it wouldn't be hard to invoke this feature accidentally So how do you get back the filenames First make sure the problem folder is currently set to display in one of the filename-free thumbnail views Now click on some other folder hold down a Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... Shift key and click back on the folder whose filenames you want to recover Here again I found that in Vista I sometimes had to try several times Now that you know how to turn this feature on and off at will perhaps you'll find it's actually useful

Hello all.
First time here and probably not the last on account of Murphy's Law.
My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (x64).
I installed IE11 with no problems.
Once completed, I rebooted but could not locate the IE desktop icon.
Inspected the Internet Explorer folder. All files seem to be there including the .exe file. After clicking on this IE11 .exe file, nothing happened.
Checked the Control Panel to ensure IE11 was in fact installed and that it was "activated." All in order.
This is a mystery as I have used previous versions of IE without any problems.
Any attempts, to resolve this glitch, will be appreciated greatly. Cheers.
