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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Oh,note that i went in and tried to give "users" read and write rights of the users\alexandros folder to see if the lock goes away ,but i saw the processing was taking too much time and also some files had access denied so i quit.I hope i did not mess up

A:Original user folder visible to all

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I'm no expert on networking, but I'd guess your problems stem from the fact you're using Homegroup to set up your computers.

Trouble is, only Windows 7 computers will network properly using the Homegroup i.e. Vista and XP are incompatible with Windows 7's Homegroup so I'd be inclined to create a network using Workgroup instead.

I've tried creating new God Mode folders but they're all showing. Reboot also doesn't solve this. Any ideas? Thanks.

I'm having a problem with a computer that I'm using. It has Windows XP Professional.
I asked this question on the Microsoft Answers community and I didn't really get an answer, so... here goes nothing.
I had some important documents in my Documents folder on there and this one time I started up the computer only to find out that they were missing. I went to Folder Options and unchecked "Hide protected Operating System files" and I chose to show all hidden files and drives. They're still not there!
I'm sure that they have to be there on the hard drive somewhere, because there was no change in disk space when I noticed that the files had gone missing.
I really want to know if I can get to the files or how.
Please help!

2. move file to D:\folder2\ (shared folder)
3. file not visible from other PCs

Why is that? Any solutions?

in Vista, some system files and folders are marked hidden. If you want to see them you have to set them to be seen using folder properties
You can set the properties for individual files and folders, or system wide.

Generally, the system folders are marked hidden in order to protect them from untrained users accidentally deleting necessary files.

in search options you can choose to search system and or hidden files and folders.

I have some folders that are not visible on the Desktop, but I can select and open them. Essentially, my computer thinks my screen is wider than it actually is....

For example, I have a folder called "Receipts". I press the letter "R" to move through all the items on my desktop that start with the letter R. The selection goes off screen (selecting the Receipts folder).... I press Enter and it opens the off-screen folder.

Through Windows Explorer, I can see the file. I haven't changed any attributes to the folder (i.e. hidden); it is obviously not hidden, as I am able to select it.

This affects more than one folder.

I run a single monitor and use Fences (just mentioning for full disclosure)

2. i want to move my documents and settings folder from my c: drive to another drive which has quite some space( c: is almost full). plz help me in doing it

thanks in advance in anticipation

A:temp internet files not visible and moving documents and setting folder

You can navigate to your C:\Documents and Settings\*yourusernamehere*\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files folder, and if you have the address bar enabled in your folder view, type \Content.IE5 at the end so it looks like this
C:\Documents and Settings\*yourusernamehere*\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
then hit enter
If you dont have the address bar at the top of your Explorer Windows, you can right click the top of the window and select "Address Bar" or you can go to "View"-->"Address Bar"
You may also have to go to "Tools"-->"folder Options"-->View Tab and select "Display the full path in the address bar"

In this Content.IE5 folder you can delete the folders with 8 digit gibberish names, these are the hidden cache files.
DO NOT DELETE THE INDEX.DAT file in there, I doubt it would let you but don't anyway.

The worst that would happen by deleting these folders would be that you may have log back into various websites or redownload the page resources(images, css, etc etc)
As for moving the Documents and Settings folder to another drive or partition, that's getting into a Sticky Situation, you CAN however redirect your "My Documents" folder to another location.
Right click the "My Documents" fodler on your desktop or your Start Menu and choose "Properties"
browse to a new location.
It will ask if you want to copy/move your existing files to this new location, I presume you would want to say yes move them to this location to free up some space.

First, please forgive me if I have overlooked this issue in the many searches I have performed thus far.

I would like to know if anyone has a way to change all folder icons within a single folder to one specific icon without performing each one individually. I have over 1,400 folders within a master folder of which I would like to change the child folder icons. I really don't wish to perform this on a folder-by-folder basis.
This is not a Default Folder Icon Change inquiry. This is simply all child folders within a single master folder. I would also be interested if the change would affect all folders of a specific type. Windows 7 does allow the 'setup' of a folder to be distributed (details view with selected details, order, and column size for example) but the icon did not distribute as well.

Any suggestions?

A:Bulk Change All Folder Icons in Single Folder or Folder Type

First, a little bit of theory. What happens when a person sets a custom icon for a folder in Windows 7?
1. Attributes of a Folder change to Read-only (of the folder, NOT content!).
2. A hidden system file created inside that folder, which contains a link to the icon.

Thus, having such file as model, it is possible simply copy it across desired folders, and change attributes of those folders correspondingly.

Secondly, having this idea in my mind, I have put all of my little knowledge of Batch files together and created a script.
BEFORE script is started the following is needed to be done:
Master folder needs to be selected and a custom icon applied to it.

1. Script is placed inside that master folder and launched.
2. First, script checks if hidden system file with custom icon settings is there.
3. Secondly, script looks for subfolders and start changing its attributes.
4. Thirdly, script copies this settings file to all subfolders of current master folder, including all levels of subfolders.

For 100 folders it took about 21 seconds, for 200 folders with different levels of subfolders it took about 57 seconds on my laptop.

I have included remarks (comments) in the source code for better understanding what is going on.

UPDATE: Original file deleted. Script was not meant to be applied to system folders.
Please check a newer FIXED version at this post.

I was expecting to go to 'This PC' and be able to see the 1TB drive and the SSD listed, but I can only see the standard drive, recovery partition and the DVD drive. Can anyone clarify what I should be seeing or whether they are working in some sort of hybrid mode together? Is there anything I can test to see if the SSD is actually working? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried formatting your USB drive in either FAT/FAT32/NTFS?

Where did your drive originate? I'm not sure what format PSPs use, so the fact that that won't connect may also be irrelevant.

I am hosting a few sites on my own server and recently noticed sites are only visible locally from within my lan. Trying to access my sites elsewhere gives me gateway timeout errors.

I need to try and troubleshoot locally from within my lan.

Is there a way (command or something) that I can try to access my sites as if I were coming in through the internet.

My setup is:
- centos 5
- virtual hosting of sites setup through virtualmin (this was just recently installed for me so maybe a config problem).
- 2 of my sites were working ok and 3 were not

A:sites not visible outside of lan

If you use a proxy, you'll see the site as it would be from outside your lan.

Are you using an ISP that allows you to host a site? That is, is it possible that your ISP is blocking traffic on port 80?

Hello, I want to download Visible Body, which was on Komando's Cool Site the other day, but said Active X controls are also included. Are these Active X controls something I want on my machine? Any thoughts ?

Active X controls for IE are kind of like addons for firefox. Only download and install Active X controls that you trust. A general rule is, if a site wants to instll an Active X, make sure that it says on the site. If there is no message at all, don't install. As for Visible Body,it is safe to install them.

We have a NAS server on the network. One of our laptops recently got destroyed by water damage and had to be replaced. The new laptop is Win 10, and the NAS server is not visible on the network. On the old, now water-damaged laptop (Win 7), the NAS server had a desktop shortcut, so even if it wasn't visible on the network, the files could still be accessed.

How can I either force the computer to recognize the NAS server, or create a desktop icon that is linked to it without it being visible in the network listing?

So I have an XP Pro SP3 machine running as a NAS. Every now and then, it will drop off the network.

I have a shared printer connected to it, and have mapped the C drive to my main desktop, as well as shortcut folders to important folders on the NAS. When the NAS drops off the Network, I can still access all these things, I just cannot find the computer when I go to Start>Network (on Vista or our other XP Pro machine).

Normally I wouldn't bother since everything is mapped and that all seems to work fine (Remote Desktop even works), but my WDTV Live can't see it either which kinda defeats the purpose of the NAS if the WDTV Live can't see it.

Any suggestions?

OK... 30 minutes until Vaio down the stairs moment....

Following a whole load of grief with a failed drive... I now have a new one.

Installed it as my primary clean drive, and then booted up from the XP disc to initiate a format and then onto a new XP installation.

'Windows cannot find a hard drive'.
It shows in bios. Could this be because it is not formatted? I thought the whole point of booting the XP disc startup was to be able to format the disc - ready for XP.

Suggestions? Is there a free Fdisk utility anywhere I can burn to disc? Certainly not buying anything else for this poxy laptop!

How do I hide the "My Documents" junction (and "My Pictures" etc. in "Documents" folder)? I think the four junctions became visible after I unzipped a 7-zip file containing the "My Documents" folder created in an XP machine. The junctions are now visible regardless of the "hide system files" etc. settings in explorer. The four junctions are also listed when I "dir" in cmd.exe. No other junctions are visible in either explorer or cmd.exe.

I can't see any option to hide a junction when I right-click -> Properties on it. How do I do this, i.e. get them back the way they were initially?

A:Some junction became visible

Hello Jruhill, welcome!

I'm not sure what you mean by "junction". Sounds like you've copied/extracted directories out of a zipfile, possibly with subdir's too. If that's the case, assuming you did not need the dir's on this machine, can't you just delete these dir's?
However, if you're unsure, then please upload a snip/picture of a explorer window of your "My Documents" with Detail settings on. We'll have a look at that.

A:PFM Fonts are not visible

These are obviously outside fonts, and are not part of a standard Windows install. So you had to install them yourself. How did you do that install on your home machine?

I just installed your provided fonts on my own machine, and they installed perfectly and are fully functional in MS Word 2007 (I don't have WP X3). They also show up just fine using Typograf.

The PFB/PFM files you provided are fine. The way I install these Type 1 fonts is to open the folder containing them in Explorer, and then "sort" on the Type column heading, so that all the PFB files are first and the PFM files are second. Then I select all the PFM files (click on the first, hold SHIFT down, and then click on the last, to light them all up). Then I right-click on the selected group and select "install" from the popup menu. Always works perfectly, as Windows apparently accesses the PFB files automatically even though I'm doing an "install" having selected only the PFM files.

So, sorry to say it, but like with your other machines where the fonts work perfectly, installing them on my own machine also shows them to be working perfectly. You must have not installed them correctly on your home machine.

hey guys

what do i do??

A:accounts not visible

If you hard reboot (power button) does it let you go on by the welcome screen the 2nd time around? Is there a similarity between what you are experiencing & what I have going on?

My laptop for quite a long time now has had the habit of hanging every time I try to access my dialup internet connection for the first time of the day only - it hangs, I do a hard reboot, then I'm good to go for the rest of the day.

I recently for some unremembered reason set my computer up with user accts (there was just me and guest before) and require a windows logon. I think it was because I was going to leave it running overnight at work with pcanywhere. I noticed that whenever my machine booted to the welcome screen where you'd normally see the users and choose one, the machine was locking & I'd have to do a hard reboot - just like it does with the dialup network access. I've gone back to disabling user logon requirements, and no more problem.

I probably need to reinstall my OS but I just haven't been brave enough to try it with xp. I am now wondering if there is something corrupt in the network protocols or drivers or something that causes this.

Certain drawings that I created recently, are only visible in windows explorer on my pc (connected to the network), but they aren't visible when other users open the same folder on their computer.

Is there a 'hidden to others' feature that may have been selected that I am not aware of? This is an odd one for me.

When I have the dwg file open, the .dwl file is visible to all, but not the dwg.

I have a desktop and laptop on my home network. My laptop and it's shared files are visible/accessible to the desktop through homegroup and network in explorer but the desktop and it's shared folders are completely invisible to the laptop in explorer. HOMEGROUP/SHARING SETTINGS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME FOR BOTH PC'S. Passwords are both set correctly. I would really appreciate some help with this as I'm completely dumbfounded.

Hi there. Got a netbook that is part of a Home network. It just isn't visible on the home network. It's got the same info as far as group, like HOME. It can see the two other PCs on the network and access their shared files, but it isn't visible by the other two. The only difference is that it is wireless. The netbook runs win 7. One of the PCs runs win 7, the other xp. Everything runs fine between the two PCs. The netbook has the network discovery turned on, has files that are shared. Crazy... Can anyone help?

I have a quot server quot actually just another workstation with a big disk running Vista I access files on it over the network from my notebook running W I have a directory network visible over One file not on the server where I can see open and edit all but one file - that one file seems invisible from the notebook The permissions of the One file not visible over network files in this directory seem identical If I make a copy of the invisible file on the server the copy is visible but the original is not If I rename the original file to something else then rename the copy to the name of the original then the file that's invisible is the one with the original name not the original file This suggests that its the name that's the problem not some other property of the file If I try to rename the copy that I can see to the original name using the notebook I get a message quot This operation can only be performed when you are connected to the network quot This is very odd because I am connected to the network evidence the fact that when I create a copy on the sever it's visible from the notebook If I make sure that I'm not trying to rename the file to a name that already exists on the server even though I can't see it from the notebook it makes no difference - I still get the error message This is driving me nuts - what's going on By the way the troublesome file is named OrganGEMA One file not visible over network h svn-base - I have files elsewhere on the server that are called the exact same thing and they don't cause this problem - it's just this one file in this one directory Thanks - Rowan

A:One file not visible over network

You can usually get that file to share by taking ownership of the file, using the take ownership shortcut is the easiest way to do this.

Hello all,

I have a problem here that I haven't been able to solve. Here is my network setup...

|--- Brother's Computer(XP)
Internet -- Server(Gentoo Linux) -- Switch -- My Computer(7)
|--- Mom's Computer(7)
From my computer I can see the server and my brothers computer.

From my mom's computer I can't see anything on the network.

My mom's computer isn't visible to any of the computers on the network.

The problem is getting my mom's computer visible on the network because she has the printer attached to her computer and I need to configure the printer to work on my computer.

So my question. How can I get my Mom's computer to show up on My Computer when I click "Network"?

Are you running homegroup?

Can you type ipconfig /all in search and upload the output?

I have a 500GB Iomega External USB HDD that I had been unable to format thru disk manager for other wise. After reading various recommendations I used the "Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool" program. When the format was finally complete a window popped up saying I need to make it a GPT disc or Master Boot. I want it for back-ups and disc imaging. In Computer Management it shows as Unallocated, but in Explorer it does not show up. Did I do something wrong or is there more to be done?

A:HDD was seen by my PC, but after 3rd party format it is not visible

A low level format writes zeros to all sectors.

After successful low level format, you have to do a regular format.

So go ahead and format it as an MBR disk.( You got the right message. Just select MBR and go ahead to format it.)

Hello all,

I hope someone can help me. I have Windows 7 dual-booting with Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm not sure if that is the cause of the problem or not. I have a HP G6000EA laptop that I recently installed windows 7 on. I have installed the relevant graphics drivers for my Nvidia GeForce Go 6100 graphics card. I had no problem until recently, my wireless card which is a broadcom is not being recognised but that's just extra information. When I load windows 7 in normal mode the startup screen will not display anything except the mouse on a black screen. It will load fine in safe mode but it will not load normally. My drivers appear to be installed correctly and Ubuntu loads fine and I'm not sure what the problem is. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'll link you to a bunch of tutorials, all of which may help you.
* Roll back driver (works for both vista and win7): Device Manager - Roll Back Driver - Vista Forums
* or try complete uninstallation of driver (windows should automatically install its own generic driver until you get an updated one): Uninstall Device and Device Driver - Vista Forums
* Have windows search for a drier for you: Driver Install - Device Manager
* Change auto-install settings for drivers in win7: Device Installation Settings-OR--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------OR-* you can look up the most recent driver from the manufacturer of the device to download. If that is the one that doesn't work, try a slightly older one, or go with the windows pick

I have a program for which I need to save project data within its Program Files location in order for it to be displayed in the program.

I can drag-drop files into that folder, load the program and see the files where they should be ...but then when I go to that folder through Windows Explorer, it appears empty

or, rather, it isn't empty (I added a whole library of files a week ago), but anything I've added recently doesn't appear.

what on earth is going on?! is there some special 'hidden' default protection on Program Files contents? I can't find any setting for that folder that is unique and would explain this behavior.

A:files not visible in Explorer...

Hi, Lykho.

I am guessing it might have something to do with permissions. By design, the Program Files folders are meant for storing installed programs. User stuff (project data, documents you create, files you download, so on) are meant to go in your user folder (Documents, Downloads, Music...).

What happens if the program is installed in a folder created in your user folder or a folder created in Libraries?

We have two computers one desktop windows 7 64bit LAN connection to router. One laptop windows 7 32bit, wireless connection to router. Both can access the internet, desktop can see both computers on network map and on < Computer ? Network> link. Laptop can see desktop on network map, but not on < Computer ? Network > link so cannot access desktop. Desktop can ping laptop, Laptop get timeout when tries to ping Desktop. Have tried network trouble shooting, but either get cannot find problem or firewall problem. We have Norton 360 on both machines, we have switched all firewalls off and still the network is not working. This network has been working.. I do hope that you can understand this. Any suggestions would be appreciated

A:Computer not visible on network

Hi fenfolk,

Failure to ping usually is a Firewall blocking. Usually you can completely Disable all Norton Services running (click on Start and type Services) or try to uninstall it completely might help then reinstall after you have resolve the issue.

I have a new HP Pavilion Elite computer and I am using a new 24" flatscreen tv for my monitor.

The problem I have is that my taskbar is only partially visible. My buttons at the top of my screen, minimize and maximize as well as the X button are not seen at all.

And some of my web pages are cut off on the left side. I have used WinXP for years and still use my Sony Vaio.

I just needed a bigger hard drive and more Ram and I had to purchase a new computer b/c Sony doesn't allow upgrades to their products.

I have tried going through the rudimentary changes Win7 offers but nothing addresses my problem.

Can someone out there help me, please.
