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.http://forums.windowscentral.com/ask-question/438986-properties-selection-drive-crashes-browser-window.html
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.)
Quite a bizarre one - every time I try to view the properties of any file or folder, I'm met with:
"Explorer.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x02e1415b" referenced at "0x000000000". The momory could not be "written".
Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"
Has anyone even encountered this before? Searching the forums produced nothing.
Thank you very much for your time and effort - it's well appreciated.

Hi JohnnyUK have you seen this http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_stp_hwpg.asp give it a shot. Also take a look at this http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_stp_hwpg.asp.
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.
Open task manager and end the process all "explorer.exe" and "rundll32.exe"
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?
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:
ANTI-VIRUS - VIRUS and MALWARE REMOVAL / PROTECTION
1. Download MalwareBytes. Malwarebytes Malwarebytes
2. Disconnect from the Internet.
3. Disable your present antivirus software and firewall.
4. Remove your present antivirus software and firewall.
5. Install and run the MalwareBytes Quick Scan (remove any bad guys). 3min 29secs on my laptop.
6. Reconnect to Internet.
7. Update MalwareBytes.
8. Run malwarebytes quick scan again.(remove any bad guys). 3min 38secs on my laptop.
9. Run MalwareBytes full scan. 16min 8secs on my laptop. With large,full disk ~2hours.
A. Disable your present antivirus software and firewall
B. Remove your present antivirus software
C. Download Microsoft Security Essentials.
D. Run Microsoft Security Essentials. Quick Scan - ~8 min on my laptop.
E. Run Microsoft Security Essentials. Full Scan - ~ 1hr 50 min on my laptop.
Now I advise you to uninstall MalwareBytes and only install again when and if you need it.
Why?, you ask. Leaving MalwareBytes installed slowed my system. AutoRuns showed MalwareBytes processes running even after exiting from MalwareBytes.
This is probably a simple solution, but I canít seem to figure it out. I use XP and was in Control Panel-appearance and themes-change desktop background-browse and selected a photo from a file folder I had on another drive. It imported the photo and it automatically included all the other photos from that folder. I donít want to have all of the photos residing (referenced) in the Display Properties-background selection box. How do I delete them from this area so they are not given as a background choice?

The default place for saving new themes is the My Documents folder. Have a browse in there. You can delete anything you don't want to keep.

After i moved windows created another user folder in c drive and started crashing,so i moved and replaced the user folder from E back to c drive .After that windows explorer started crashing often.

You may have the Translucent Selection Rectangle turned off. Turn it back on to see if that may help.

A couple of days ago, my laptop (Dell Latitude E6500) had a virus warning pop up. WSE was in the process of deleting it, when my computer shut down unexpectedly. Upon restart, I received the following message:
The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
The dvd repair function did nothing, but I found info how to get mbr back via the command prompt.
Several virus scans claim the pc is clear, but I've had the same problem multiple times now.
PC shuts down without warning, and then can't boot up.
System restore to an earlier time has not helped, either.
I'm hoping someone here might me able to help!
Welcome to SF, siskiou.
Sorry you are having trouble.
You can try a bootable antivirus CD:

A boot sector virus can really screw things ups.
Next, follow these instructions:

No matter how many times I go to 'View' settings, every time I choose a new window (i.e. opening a folder) I am always met with a small-format window rather than a full-screen, full-size one. I also am met with random lists instead of 'medium-sized icons', which I have opted for and chosen as default in 'view'. Have I missed a colossally simple tick in a box?
By default, folder views are a per folder setting, and will be the same as when last closed per folder.
In a library, the folder view is shared between all included folders in the library.
If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to set a default folder view for all folders.
Folder Template - Set Default for All Folders in Windows 8
Afterwards, open File Explorer, maximize it to full screen, and close File Explorer. Each time you open File Explorer it should now open full screen as it was last closed.
Hope this helps,
When you click on (or hover above) an icon of an active program that has multiple windows open, a "bar" containing representations of these open windows pops up, which forces me to then decide which one to click on, even though in 99% of the cases I want to go to the one I was working in last ( I think this is true of how most people work). To accomplish this, I have to hold CTRL when clicking on the program icon in the taskbar. Is there a way to reverse this behavior? In other words, I would like CTRL+click to bring up the window selection "bar", and a single click (with no modifier key pressed) to take me to the last window I was working in.
Yay! I got the guys stumped! Either that or all you SF gurus are still busy working on a solutionhttp://www.sevenforums.com/customization/39290-changing-window-selection-behavior-taskbar.html

When I go to the Control Panel and select the Mouse, the standard Microsoft Mouse window opens instead of the Cirque Touchpad window.

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.

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.

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 ...

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.
Minimize it again and this time hold down shift and close it off.
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.

Whenever I right-click on an mp3 or wma file and choose "properties", it causes explorer.exe to have an error and I have to restart it from Task Manager. I renamed the files to mp2, mpeg, and wav and there was no longer this problem. Do you know what's happening??? Also, my mp3 files are being "modified" without me doing anything. No content seems to be changed but according to Windows it is still modified, which is bothersome when I want to only access my most recent songs. What's happening with my music????
Might as well start with the basics, Anti-virus check and Ad-aware.

Have you checked to see if you are infected? Sometimes an infection will corrupt your onboard protection - so I suggest that you try these free, online scans: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blogs/usas...?showentry=1252Also, could you please post a screen shot of what appears on your desktop?

HelloI have been infested with Sys32 properties window which keep appearing on window start up. I have tried by Norton anti virus also but it never works.

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.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/166169/window-sys32-properties-appears-on-opening/
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.
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 fixed it.. If anyone is having this same issue... This is what I used to fix my problem... It's for Windows 7 but it applies to windows 10...
Since a couple of weeks ago, I've noticed that when I go to change LAN adapter properties (For example, to manually give my adapter an IP), explorer always crashes in Windows 7. I have no idea why, and is there anyway to fix it? I know this isn't very descriptive, but its as much as I can give.
Also, at that same time, the themes service keeps crashing, and my taskbar keeps going into windows classic mode. I noticed this after when I installed 3DMark Vantage, which installed PhysX drivers for my ATi card! Since then, it's happened. I uninstalled 3DMark vantage and the PhysX drivers, and it still occurs
Thanks in advance
I have had an on going issues with Vista crashing and then restart some times it does it so quick that I hardly notice it because it was just the OS restarting not the computer rebooting The how and why Vista would restart was unknown though I do and Click when Properties Crashes restarts then Explorer Right on remember a couple of times I would get a media player error but that was not consistant However now the error is consistant Explorer Crashes and then restarts when Right Click on Properties and I can replicate it On certain files when I would RIGHT Click on the file to look their property Vista will crash and after scanning itself restart up At first I have not paid attention to the files in question but today I noticed that when I went to look at the properties for Gas Powered Games' Dungeon Siege because it crashes every time I try to start it I just reinstalled the game yesterday and while I ran into an online issue was able to play the single player version fine but today when I tried to start the game it won't start and crashes I did two searches under Vista restarting and Vista restarting when Right Clicking properties and after reading the results there were a few threads that had very similar issues but they were locked and none of them had an answer So let's try it again anyone got a clue about this issue My system is an ACER that I keep updated with Microsoft Update and protected by AVG as well as the Microsoft utilities
Are you sure its not just Windows Explorer crashing? I don't see how the OS could restart but not the computer. Try typing sfc /scannow into your start menu. This will check you system files and repair them if they are indeed damaged.http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/189330-explorer-crashes-then-restarts-when-right-click-properties.html

Hello I have two questions that are not critical to the operation of my system but has been driving me crazy in an effort to research them to no avail The only thing that I am pretty sure of is that properties window Folder dialog Extra Tabs on the it Extra Tabs on the Folder properties dialog window is a problem with the registry When I right click on a folder and then click properties the dialog window comes up with extra tabs This happens for every folder on my computer The extra tabs are the same tabs as the My Documents folder shortcut Target General and Sharing and the target window is C Documents and Settings Owner My Documents This results in Extra Tabs on the Folder properties dialog window every folder having an extra General and Sharing tab and a Target tab with the My Documents target in it Interestingly enough the virtual folder that is listed in explorer for My Documents has only tabs but the My Documents folder inside Documents and Settings Owner the actual folder itself has the extra tabs just like every other folder A possibly connected problem is that the Add Remove section of the Control Panel no longer has the install dates or useage level for most programs The dates are in the HKLM uninstall registry keys but they are not being read for some reason I have been installing and uninstalling a lot of programs mostly antivirus antispyware firewall and utility programs in an effort to clean up and speed up my computer and test a lot of different applications This effort has been dramatically successful however I am left with these two minor but annoying issues I did have an issue a couple of weeks ago with being unable to install microsoft updates which cost me many hours of research and effort with the help of Microsoft Support but I managed to fix it partly with their help but mostly with web research Ended up re-installing Office I think this is when the issue of the missing install dates started as the installed programs since this time are showing the install date Any ideas especially about the extra tabs Screenshot is attached Thank you Sybrandus

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!

If Memtest86+ is showing up errors, then there are hardware issues present. It's just discerning what hardware is bad. Initial suspect obviously is memory, but the unusual case makes it think it's some logic error like some CPU failure or something. It's also possible that when burning it to CD that the Memtest itself got corrupted somehow (i.e. bad burn).
16 GB is a lot of memory on a consumer motherboard. There is the possibility that while your motherboard can handle 16GB of memory, that 16GB of the actual memory model that you're using may not be supported. Certain configurations of memory can have problematic issues. So while the memory sticks themselves may not be bad, the actual 16GB setup of them may break things.
Have you tested system stability with reduced amount of RAM, like 1/2 sticks of RAM, as well as running Memtest on a couple passes for each separate stick?

How can I remove my E drive from the restore pt selection ?
Please see image below:
*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.
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.
It's too big a mess to sort easily with the way you masked the screenshots.
Try System Restore to before you did this.

Any SCSI hard drive should do, you just need to determine if you have 68 or 80 pin (80 pin is hot-swappable, if you have a normal desktop it's most likely 68 pin), For example:

Run this VBS script to find your OEM & installed keys---
For some reason, the default choice for when I double-click any of my drives (C:, A:, D:, E:, F: ) (hard drives and removable) is search instead of open.
Note: This isn't the case if I am trying to Open... or Save as... in any executable.
I only want to change the default option to Open again (or Explore if I am using Windows Explorer), but I have tried many things with no results (From folder options to drive properties to many things in the Control Panel)

Hi Before Christmas I started getting browser and sometimes PC crashes At first it seemed to be browser related But the PC would also crash when idle I tried disabling add- ons in Firefox and opening in safe mode Tried using Chrome but it would crash with the message that Flash had malfunctioned Then I started getting Stop messages and BSODs I hadn t installed and new hardware and I don t think installed any new big programs except for updates to existing ones I emailed a few of the mini dump PC BSOD crashes, Browser crashes, files to a friend He said they didn t specify which drivers were causing the problem But it might be something to do with the video or the network card I rolled back drivers No change I updated drivers and uninstalled lots of programs For a month everything seemed stable Then the BSODs started to return Infrequently at first but then more regularily Sorry the story is a bit confused but Browser crashes, PC crashes, BSOD it is difficult to remember every detail of what happened and the order I did things in The event viewer says that they are either error or Would someone be able to look at the recent minidump files and see if they specify any particular drivers Or suggest any other steps I can take to cure the problem Thanks John XP Home SP Intel Core Duo GB RAM GB WDC WD AAVS- ZTB MS- MoBo GeForce G desktop winxp bit english whql Fujitsu Siemens A - A VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet nbsp
Indeed things are a bit of a mess at present Like I said my MSN browser seems largely unaffected which leads me to believe it s spyware or malware MSN is affected in two main ways Some shopping websites don Ie "crashes", Netscape Browser Msn Ok Crashes, t do anything when I hit the quot next page quot buttons Has ActiveX been partially disabled Also when I attempt to download patches or any new freeware I hit the Ie "crashes", Netscape Crashes, Msn Browser Ok quot Download Now Ie "crashes", Netscape Crashes, Msn Browser Ok quot button I m sent to the next page which usually says quot Thanks for downloading whatever quot but no download has occurred IE does not quot crash quot until I attempt to open my favorites If I simply click on an article on my homepage everything continues normally Interestingly enough after I get the crash message in IE I can close the message and another window pops up stating that there is an error and IE will now close There is an quot OK quot button on this second window Until I click quot OK quot IE doesn t close and functions more or less normally with the same quot quirks that are occurring in MSN This all began about three days ago In the few days that preceded this change in my computer s behavior things of significance happened In order they are First upon start-up but not EVERY time I began to receive a message stating that a certain webpage couldn t be opened Sometimes the name is different but it s always something inappropriate I m sure it s just spyware I thought I d eliminated it with Spybot Search and Destroy because it stopped happening for a while It has returned since the quot crashes quot began Second I started using my Outlook Express program No big deal but I hadn t used it before Third in order to use Outlook with my Juno e-mail account I had to upgrade my Juno account which required a download of Juno Speedband The day after that I turned on my computer to find that Norton was going a bit haywire attempting unsuccessfully to scan an unnamed program or programs opening about a dozen small notifications at once Norton then popped up a message stating that Norton would have to be uninstalled and re-installed which I did but with no success the same message just popped up again so I currently have uninstalled Norton That s when all of the other problems surfaced as well

Did this start after loading the new drivers?
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.
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:
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.
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?
What does it mean to have this unchecked?
It depends a lot on the power of your system. If you'd completed My System I could have given you an idea. 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.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/solved-drive-properties-191033.html
I have had this problem a few times but I can't remember what I did the last time because it was some time ago.
When you right click on the D:\ Drive and go to properties it comes up saying that the drive is 5.5GB but when you select the files in D drive the size is only 2GB. It says the drive has only 100mb free and the drive is 6GB & no I can't just make it bigger
There are no files directly under the root directory and hidden files or folders are showing. I ran the disk cleanup but that only freed up a littke bit of space, no fix the issue
In addition to the hidden files or folders, have you selected the system files to be shown that are normally hidden?

This is the 2nd time my window is crashed
My friend had help me fix back the 1st time and now he cant help me anymore and i have to figure out myself to look for help.
What my problem is when i using my computer surfing internet,suddenly the window will become unresponding and i have to close it same things happen when i playing my games.The window will hang and i cant shut down it from Start.
Then I have to force shut down by clicking the ON button.
After that the screen pop out a reading disc error click ctrl+del+alt to restart it or error loading operating system.
So,my friend told me to add window into my pc.
How to do it but not format all my files inside the pc?
what your friend suggested is a Clean Install Windows 7 of windows 7. so you need to take a back up of all your important docs,pics,etc and you will have to freshly install all the softwares that you use. first of all, open task manager and see what is using you cpu the most (click on show all users). also what antivirus do you use?http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/212911-window-crashes.html
I'm not able to Run PERFMON System Health Report. Not responding.
