Viewing Mixed Content CD with Windows XP

Q: Viewing Mixed Content CD with Windows XP

I am having difficulty viewing a mixed content CD. I have a CD that has audio and video on it that I have purchased. The problem is that when I put it in my drive it only shows the audio files. I have tested this with another computer and when I put in the disk it only shows the video files. What is the work around so that I can choose what files on the disk I want to access please? I am sure it is something simple, but I just cannot figure it out.

Preferred Solution: Viewing Mixed Content CD with Windows XP

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.)

The Firefox 23 release notes claim that mixed content pages are now blocked. The Mozilla Messaging Forum for Thunderbird support has mixed content, but it is not blocked. Why say that sites with mixed content are blocked if they are not? The URL:

I've had this problem since IE6, and just updated to IE8 and I still can't get rid of it and it really annoys me.

Main problem - my school mail is an Outlook HTTPS site, and half my emails contain pictures and stuff. Do not like having to click yes/no each time I update my inbox. I'd just use FF but stuff doesn't really show right, and I like the viewing pane.

I have set my webmail into my trusted sites, and I have changed the setting for both trusted sites and normal sites to enable mixed content. Still pops up every single time. Please help.

I have a program that syncs files from your computer to your flash drive and vice versa I would like for it to automatically start when I plug in my flash drive But it's not on my AutoPlay list so I decided to add it First I tried using a program called AutoPlay Repair This allowed me to add the syncing program into AutoPlay but for some reason it worked on every object type Audio files video files blank CD etc BUT mixed content which is what my flash drive is Next I tried this suggestion to change the registry but it didn't work which is probably because it's suggested for XP Finally I tried another program Default Programs Editor and this once again only added the syncing program to the menus for everything BUT mixed content Does anyone know why Windows doesn't let you change the AutoPlay programs for mixed content Or does anyone know how to get the setting I want

I'm posting this for a friend who is having trouble accessing web pages. They seem to be
having 2 general problems. One, they can't view any .jpegs on web sites. And most web
pages come up "white". I know this isn't all that much to go on, but any clues you
might have for me to help them would be appreciated.

When attempting to view live TV, I receive a Restricted Content message and viewing is stopped. This has not been a problem in the past when watching movies. Could this have something to do with DRM? I am not attempting to record, merely watching.

My OS is Windows XP MCE 2005.

A:MCE 2005 Restricted Content when viewing TV

DRM shouldn't be stopping the viewing but if the V-chip type software is set for sexual or violent content restrictions that would certainly be causing the effect. If you're watching Mary Poppins on the Disney channel then I don't know.

When i use any form of flash such as watching videos on youtube or playing flash games the flash content itself lags, my computer slows and CPU usage rises to 100%, iexplore.exe or firefox.exe is shown to be causing this in processes.
I have tried relentlessly searching the internet for a solution, unsuccesfully. I have tried reinstalling flash player and i'm sure i have the latest version. I have tried reinstalling internet explorer and firefox.
I have also tried updating video drivers. I have even tried reinstalling XP and still no change. Could someone please help

Back when Chrome first came out I didn't rush to use it I'm not an early adopter type when it comes to browsers I was a devoted Firefox and IE user favoring Firefox a little more But over time there began this period where Firefox started getting sluggish and couldn't handle streaming video very well Chrome worked better than Firefox and IE so I switched to it I've been using Chrome for years now mostly with good results until sometime during this past flash Chrome up Giving content viewing for any year I started to notice video in the embedded flash player getting choppy and also crashing a lot more than it used to previously it would happen maybe once a month--now it's like a few times per week I fired up IE Giving up Chrome for any flash content viewing and checked it out and video performance is much better The problems weren't limited to just running flash I found that responsiveness would get sluggish when navigating between tabs and some pages would stop responding to scrolling Also sometimes Chrome would fail to refresh the content--it would look like the same page was present on multiple tabs and I'd have to go back-and-forth to trigger the refresh So I don't know if there's some tweaking that can be done in Chrome to fix this I did find one suggestion on HowToGeek that shows one solution for crashes I tried it and it does seem to be working where Chrome is crashing less often but the other problems persist It's odd too because Adobe seems to provide flash updates rather frequently like one or two per month Anyone else here had Adobe Flash player problems with Chrome

I'd advise not upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10, 7 is not broken. On the other hand, if you are using Win 8-8.1, then you should benefit from the upgrade.

MS need to address the things they break from 7 to 10 ... hopefully, soon!

OS is windows xp sp3.
The characters on a Toshiba notebook keyboard have become all mixed up. Several or more letters are numbers. I don't know how to fix this. Steps taken to try to fix it have been to uninstall and re-install the keyboard driver. I then restarted the computer.
I could not find anything under language options.

Any advise to solve this would be appreciated.

Hello !
I installed windows 8.1 pro preview successfully in English, and since I use French very often, I installed and changed the display language into French. I also checked two options concerning the welcome screen and account users to display them all in French and worked perfectly.

I noticed the watermark before changing the display language into French, then followed this method to remove it : How to Remove Windows 8.1 Preview Watermark | MyTechBlog
the method worked fine, but when I changed into French the watermark turned out again, then repeated the same method until I removed it.

when I finished I noticed that "My Computer" which appears as "This PC" + "Control Panel" + when I open Control Panel everything appear in English. but my display language now is French except the aforesaid.

Would you help solve this problem?

I have a Hyper-V virtual instance of Windows XP running under Windows 10. The network share from the Windows 10 side is failing to be usable under the XP instance due to a "you lack permission to access".

I have a few other XP machines on the network that are able to access the Windows 10 share without difficulty and the other Windows XP boxes can see and access the shared files on the XP instance on the Hyper V and the other direction too.

How do I get the Hyper V instance to see the share on it's own host box?

I'm trying to provide some desktop support for a co-worker who is using Windows on a laptop The heart of the problem as far as I can tell has to do with operating on a network with a lot of Apple machines all using OS X afaik The problem she's experiencing is cpu load and memory usage that climbs until it essentially causes the machine to be unusably slow load stable close to at memory usage typically at least - I believe it has to do with the mixed network because she does not have the same problems at home or on any other network she's used at which times I suspect a much higher ratio of Windows to Apple machines using the network involved than she has at work Also her machine is recently updated and is being updated again as I type this and I haven't found any probative entries in the event logs etc I've perused (with network high mixed X) OS usage on 7 Windows cpu load/memory and no Windows 7 high cpu load/memory usage on mixed network (with OS X) reports of hardware or driver issues It is possible that Skype enters this picture as not running it seems to help a little with the load problem However it can't be the root cause as she uses Skype at home on the same machine without problems I've searched extensively for some information that would illuminate this problem but have found very little and the most promising related questions I've found anywhere remain unanswered currently I've already followed several suggestions I've found that seemed promising such as disabling autotuning disabling RDC using Microsoft's online network diagnostics tool viewing performance and resource reports all to no apparent avail She has also replaced her original network card with a newer one Staple's told her it had to do with an old network card and or drivers which also turned out not to provide any lasting benefits she ultimately returned the new card when the problem returned Also note that this is not a file sharing issue as she isn't attempting to access files on any other local machine and vice versa afaik The OS X machines are not experiencing any networking problems either so the problem seems to be on the Windows side I'm primarily a Linux user left to my own devices though I use OS X at work and I'm pretty new to it and am rusty at Windows support and XP are the last versions I used with any frequency and it's been a few years I'm feeling a little out of my depth I'm hoping somebody here with more experience at Windows and or Mac networking can shed a little light on this

Is it possible with the non-W7 machine's shares set to something besides "guest access allowed"?

I've tried a few tweaks on my Windows 7 desktop and my Kubuntu 11.04 Linux-running laptop. Nothing has worked. Unless access to a shared directory is set to guest on the laptop, the Windows box keeps asking for a legitimate password, whenever I attempt to 'open' them.

Both machines have the same log-in strings for both basic log-on and Samba. Or do they? I'm presuming there's no separate logon/password required for Windows 7 Home Premium when it comes to file sharing, but as a late Windows XP Professional user (both SP2 and SP3), I'm not taking anything wholly for granted. Any Windows build since the dawn of XP that installs without gpedit.msc is bound to be lacking in other ways, imco.

So any help or advice someone could offer would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 Content Freezing .. Where to go and what to do first?

If this was just recently purchased, I would take back to Office Depot and demand a replacement. There are a few things that can cause lockups:
From Easy fixes:

System Settings for power options
HDD settings
RAM Settings

To the serious:
Device Failures
Corrupted OS installation
CPU throttling due to heat

For the easy fixes, I would check the power settings and change them to disallow Harddrive (HDD) shutdown or change the min time to shut down HDD's

Also you can disallow Hibernate or sleep and turn off other things like turn off monitor

As for the RAM you can get CPU-Z to see what your CPU and RAM are running at: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

The SPD tab will tell you your RAM settings that they should be. post Screenshots or compare to the Memory Tab to see what your RAM is currently set to

Before getting into to many things though, I would seriously try to get it replaced.

I should direct this rant to Microsoft. I am bewildered by the lack of controls that windows xp (for example) allow the user. This is why there is a cottage industry of shareware for every little thing, such as controling shutdown and startup and controling the system tray. At every turn we are being asked to buy another little program to control memory or whatever for $29.95. If we were to actually purchase all that we need we would spend $1000! Why can't $$ get the message and blend these capibilities into the base product, - and I don't buy the agrument that they are wanting to remain lean and mean. The features I am talking about are well established as things everyone wants - they should be available without resorting to the shareware extortion.

I have been trying to regain disc space on my SSD by using System Mechanic (SM). SM allows me to gain access to the hidden folder content.ie5 and I have been deleting a lot of junk from this folder.

So far I have removed all the HTML links and flash objects in this folder. However there are a lot of other things in this folder taking up a lot of space. After two days I recovered close to four GB of space but I believe if it were safe to delete the other files I could gain another five to eight GB of space.

Question is, can I delete everything in this folder (content.ie5) or are there files that must remain in the ie5 folder for Windows seven or ie8 to continue to work properly?

See if you can gain more space by running TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

***TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps.

Seems like we've had this one before, or one like it, but I'm not coming up with much. Have you tried a different mouse? It seems reasonable that there may be a wiring short at the mouse end that simulates clicking when you move the mouse. Are you using any software like Intellimouse? Go to Mouse in the Control Panel and make sure you don't have Quicklock enabled, and check your double-clicking speed. Try changing the speed a bit slower or faster and see if the problem persists.

The product is an e-learning course that is distributed on CD. It connects to a web site allowing the user to sign in online, but then is supposed to return to the CD to run through the content.

We have added the web site as a "Trusted Site" and that process works fine. The problem is that when we're on the web site and then try to access the local CD drive, the browser just doesn't respond. An example of the link would be:
[a href="D:\page.html"]Link[/a] ( where "D" is the CD drive and of course we're not using square brackets )

In our advanced internet settings we've enabled content to run from CD. The difference seems to be when you're already on a site to link back to the CD.

Also, this works fine on Win 2000, just not XP.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Anyone else having trouble with this, I've tried re-indexing, some of the XLS sheets are found, but not many, so I know the directories are included. Pretty sure it was all good on v8. I've switched the Bing search off, and if I let it search everywhere after a bit it gives up and says it's taking too long. It finds files based on the file name and seems to be fairly successful searching PDFs but XLS no good. I'm running Office 2003 so whether it's forgotten how to read old app stuff I don't know


A:Windows search 8.1 not finding XLS content

Check under the indexing options (control panel) and then advanced settings that the xls file type has not been unchecked under file types
Also if I'm not mistaken, the indexing by default does not index the entire C:\ or whatever so you may need to specify more areas if you do not leave your documents in one place

Thanks in advance.

Hi JukeboxJezabel,

I'm not sure why a power outage would have caused this, but I'm assuming a file has been corrupted. What I'd like for you to do, however, is to check to see if your folder settings have been altered.

Navigate to the 'Start Menu', and type in 'Folder Options'. Hit 'Enter'. Click on the button that says 'Restore Defaults'. Also, you can navigate to the 'View' tab and hit 'Restore Folders' and press 'Yes'. Check any boxes that you would like to have as your default settings. Then, reboot your computer and check to see if you're still experiencing this problem. If you are, let me know and we'll work on another fix.

Office 2010 has installed the iFilter and I've confirmed the proper indexing filter is associated with the file, and I've made sure the directory is indexed, but Windows 7 search refuses to search the actual content WITHIN the .MSG files.

If I can't get the OS to work with searching the files in these directories, is there a free tool anyone would recommend I try?

Windows Should Ban Downloads of Pirated Content Organization Says Windows and Office are two of the most impacted software products when it comes to the high level of piracy around the world and this is exactly the reason Microsoft should introduce new methods of blocking the download of illegal content straight from the operating system level This is the conclusion of a report published Ban Windows of Content, Downloads Pirated 10 Organization Should Says by Black Market Watch and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime regarding ways to tackle piracy in Sweden with hopes that similar measures could be adopted worldwide at some point in the future Specifically the organization claims that Windows 10 Should Ban Downloads of Pirated Content, Organization Says Microsoft Apple and Google can introduce piracy-blocking filters in their operating systems and thus make it impossible for users to download illegal content anyway This would make torrent trackers and other piracy content distribution channels obsolete because this way users wouldn t be allowed to download files no matter if these sources are available or not Furthermore the organization claims document in Swedish that these companies need to be encouraged and if this doesn t work regulated in order to block downloads of copyright infringement material according to a report from TorrentFreak Other players that possess the potential ability to limit piracy are the companies that own the major operating systems which control computers and mobile devices such as Apple Google and Microsoft it says The Windows example The aforementioned report uses Windows as the living proof that such a thing can be done although it s only based on pure speculation and no evidence is brought in this regard Specifically Windows is described as a possible way to block piracy at the operating system level citing older reports that suggested Microsoft planned to ban users from playing pirated games on their PCs Back in August updates that Microsoft made to its terms and services made everyone believe that the company wanted to block pirated software on Windows PCs using an automatic detection system similar to the one proposed by today s new report The terms pointed out that Microsoft might download software updates or configuration changes including those that prevent you from accessing the Services playing counterfeit games or using unauthorized hardware peripheral devices Despite the fact that Redmond strongly denied these claims shortly after that pirate websites were quick to respond and blocked access for computers running Windows in an attempt to prevent additional risks that would have been caused by such a protection system Windows s spying claims didn t help either as many accused Microsoft of using the new operating system to collect data about users and the content on their computers For the moment an official statement from Microsoft and Apple isn t available to see how the two companies react to this proposal but we ve reached out to both and we ll update the article with more info when it becomes available Click to expand nbsp

Lightroom Mac vs PC Speed Test | $4k iMac vs $4k Custom PC Performance Test



While we really appreciate Apple?s approach to their hardware quality and design, we can?t justify the price to performance difference at this time.

Speaking conservatively, a 25% difference in performance would turn an 8 hour wedding edit into 10 hours. Spread across 30 weddings a year (for a typical studio), this is a 60 hour time difference in the time spent editing weddings. For a studio like ours shooting nearly 400+ weddings, a 25% difference would require 800 more hours of editing or nearly 20 weeks of productivity.

In this Mac vs. PC test, our results showed that the Apple iMac was behind by 35% or more across the board, making the PC the clear victor.Click to expand...

Forgive me for being naive but are you sure you have the actual folders on the desktop and not just a link to them on the C drive? have you tried renaming the one with the lost contents to it's old name? If they are the actual folders did they get moved or just copied, have you checked to see if they are still on the C drive? If the contents have got deleted you would have surely got a message "Do you want to delete etc". Have you checked the recycle bit?

Good morning all..

How do i look at the actual images when i choose thumbnails in windows.

I used to be able to see the pictures when i chose the thumbnail options, but all i see now is the type of icon they are. for ex. the gif or jpeg icon.

I don't know if i did something or not.

I have a huge collection of very small (8x8 to 16x16) images that I need to look through. It would be nice if I could see each picture zoomed in to a larger size, since it is hard to make out the detail with the naked eye. However, when I try to zoom in using Windows Explorer, the displayed size of the images doesn't change at all, only the space between them. If I open the image with Windows Photo Viewer, which came with my computer, I can zoom in and out using the mouse wheel. However, the moment I move to the next or previous image, the zoom reverts back to the normal setting, forcing me to zoom in again. This quickly becomes unbearably tedious for thousands of images, and I was wondering if there's a better way to let me see the zoomed in images.

My windows live messenger IM feature is update and working fine. My web cam allows others to view me. However the other person that I want to view is having problems letting me view them. Every time they send an invite for me to view their web cam, a message appears under the invite immediately that they canceled the invite..they are saying that the install of their webcam is correct, however it ask them to update to the newest version of windows live messenger..when they did still didn't work and they couldn't even view themselves from their cam. Could it be a firewall problem for them of just a step they are missing? My friend is very frustrated..what advise can I give them?

Hi. Someone restored my ipod and deleted all the info on it. Is it possible to view Windows Explorer history to see when the itunes program was accessed similar to viewing history in a browser. If I can view the history I may be able to tell who was using the computer at the time by comparing it to the browser history where i can see who loged in to their email adresses, etc.
Thanks in advance

And what are you going to do if you find out who had this mishap ?  I know 'revenge is a dish best eaten cold' but also 'Vengeance is Mine, sayeth The Lord'
I don't think Explorer has such a history, it's purely for recent searches. I think you would be better just biting the bullet and re-installing your music, videos etc. to your iPod. Probably quicker as well !

When I look for a file in windows 7's search, i get the file, but I don't get the file's actual location (like c:/desktop/documents/music... etc). I just get the file and it's kinda pointless if i need to search for a file every single time i need it. Someone told me that i should just click the file, then properties, then details, but that seems like needing to go too far for something simple.

this is a search result for example:

is there a way i can change the settings to produce the actual file with the location under it or something?

Hi there,
I am actually encountering a problem while viewing any photo on my windows 7 PC. My PC is equipped with 64 bit Windows Ultimate OS. Whenever I open any picture through windows photo viewer, an error message is displayed that :

C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer\Photoviewer.dll is not a valid Win32 application.

I even downloaded a fresh dll and replaced it with the other one, but it displayed the same error as it was before. What possible reasons could be for this problem and how can it be configured ??

I'll try and describe this as best I can - I often have a lot of MS Word windows open at the same time, and windows seems to vary between showing me them as small preview windows or a vertical list when hovering over them in the taskbar - I only want to show them as a list, but can't see how to do this?

Any replies most welcome as all these 'mini window' previews are annoying the hell out of me!


A:Viewing Open Windows From Taskbar?

Hello DekHog,

It depends on if you want all icons to never show thumbnails preview windows and only lists, or just have it set to show a list after so many windows are open instead.

If never, then you can use one of the options that you like best in the tutorial below to do this.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

If only after so many windows are open to have the list, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.

Taskbar List or Thumbnail Previews Mode - Change

I have about 83GB of useless data trapped in C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\Z1O6OK0R, DQ1O7FJH, etc. This is not to be confused with C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files. The only way I could examine them is by using the Glary Utilities Diskspace analyzer. Using Windows explorer I could not get past systemprofile. When I try to delete the files with the analyzer nothing happens. All the tips I have read seem to refer only to the C:\Users string. Double clicking on Z1O6OK0R, etc reveals all of the saved pages, many thousands of them. How do I get rid of them and reclaim the space again?

Sounds like you may need "winlivemailfix.reg":
"This issue occurs because Windows Live Mail Version 3 does not install a 64-bit search filter and therefore cannot index the Windows Live Mail files for Windows 7 64-bit operating systems by default. The e-mail header will be searched and will produce results, but searching on the content of the e-mail message body will not produce the expected results. "

Executive Summary-----------------Windows Vista includes an extensive reworking of core OS elements in order toprovide content protection for so-called "premium content", typically HD datafrom Blu-Ray and HD-DVD sources. Providing this protection incursconsiderable costs in terms of system performance, system stability, technicalsupport overhead, and hardware and software cost. These issues affect notonly users of Vista but the entire PC industry, since the effects of theprotection measures extend to cover all hardware and software that will evercome into contact with Vista, even if it's not used directly with Vista (forexample hardware in a Macintosh computer or on a Linux server). This documentanalyses the cost involved in Vista's content protection, and the collateraldamage that this incurs throughout the computer industry.

Most issues pertaining to Windows 8, 8.1 etc end up being user fault or system specific.

I have windows 7 home premium 32bit on a pretty fast AMD phenom II x4 with 4gb ram. The problem I ahve is with windows explorer. When I click on a drive, it takes about 5 seconds before it will show me the folders. Then when I click on a folder, I have to wait as a little hourglass-type slider goes across the top of the screen before it will show the contents. This can take anywhere from 2-15 seconds. I don't remember any other windows OS doing this.

Is there something I can change to help speed this up? Not sure that it matters, but I checked defrag and most of my drives are less than 5% fragmented - the most being 15%.

For work I create church bulletins on my new Win 8 laptop. When viewed on a windows 7 or xp computer, the document is too big, even though it is created with the same font. I spent hours on the phone with Microsoft and they walked me through Publisher 2013, but that didn't help. I really think it has to do with the operating system. I have tried everything. No matter what OS I create the document in, it appears fine on the screen, but when viewed in anything lower than win 8, it needs to be tweaked to fit properly. I have even tried saving the doc. in earlier versions of publisher and that doesn't work. Any advise?

I suspect you mean view all files on a computer using Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

Right click Computer and select Open. Expand the arrow in front of C.
Expand the arrow in front of Users.
If you click on your name (don't let the lock on your name scare you), you will see folders with your files in the right hand pane. Click on any of them to see what they contain.

For an external hard drive: be sure the drive is attached.
Click on computer and you should see the drives. Click on either drive to see the contents.
