Q: ie7 cookie location

My work computer got upgraded from IE6.1 to IE7. I can't find where the cookies are kept now. Tried 3 things with no luck:
1. from IE 7 menu: tools-internet options-settings-view files and it goes to the same dir as IE6.1
2. from Windows Explorer: right clicked on the local settings directory, gone to properties-general-and unchecked hidden
3. wrote a cookie and then searched for it by name

I am sure cookie values are being used and that new ones are being made.

1. Where are they on IE7 ?
2. How do I get to them ?
3. Are they not being written to the disk and just in memory ?

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.)

I built my first computer yesterday and purchased an SSD and a 1TB hard drive. I installed windows 8 on the ssd and I want to have all future installs and whatnot go automatically to my larger drive. However, at the moment my ssd is my (C drive and everything gets installed there. yes I know I get the option of where I want to install things but that gets annoying!

So, how do I make my second (larger) hard drive the place where everything is installed there automatically?

My dad's Dell Studio 1537 laptop hanged during a bios update, so the bios chip is fried. I want to desolder the chip and replace it with a preprogrammed new bios chip, but I'm not able to indentify or locate which EEPROM is the bios chip.

Anyone with tips how to identify the right chip?

I got a reply from the website that sells the chips and they identified the right chip for me based on a picture I've send them. In case someone else has the some issue: it's the chip on the back of the mainboard next to the large chip with the label ITE.

The id of the chip is:

Good Morning, my PC got infected with a virus. I ran combofix and it took care of the problem but now I cant connect to anyother network pc or share folder.
When I look into my tcp/ip settings netbios is enable but when I look from ipconfig it says disabled there. Can anyone please tell me how to recover from this error. I have tried many things but I can not get it to work.

A:The network location cannot be reached

The message "The network location cannot be reached" means your routing table has no means to send packets to your ISP.
However, that is a symptom of the real cause; your system tcp/ip address is not correct.

After using the combofix tool, make sure you reboot the system.

Then get a command prompt (start->run->cmd) and enter ipconfig /all >myTCP.txt
Open the myTCP.txt file, copy the contents and then paste that into your follow-up on this topic . . .

I want to install Windows 7 using a USB pen drive, since I can't using my DVD drive; but I was having a problem - the cmd prompt wouldn't recognize the USB drive I had connected, so I checked and saw that its location is the same as my HDD. How can I change this? They are both on location 0, so the cmd only recognizes my Hard Drive. How can I change this?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!!

A:USB Drive Location same has HDD

you need to make the USB drive bootable... and then make sure the device gets booted before the HDD. you can go into the BIOS settings if you need to change the boot order. there are a lot of little applications that let you make flash drives bootable, like WinSetupFromUSB. Google it.

Hi all,

I have an old thinkpad 600x laptop running Windows 2000 Professional. It won't recognise the CD-ROM drive, and I think this is because both the CD-ROM and the hard drive are identified at Location 0. I can't figure out how to change this to Location 1 in either Windows or BIOS. Can anybody help? Thank you.

A:CD-ROM Location issue

Sounds as if your CD-ROM drive has failed, and because of that failure your have the location "error".
You can do further work by going to, then click on support, then Drivers and downloads.
Enter the seven digit type number for your 600X.
Be sure your BIOS is updated, then download all updates related to the CD-ROM drive... You will benefit from downloading all that relate to your model... best way is go to the Thinkpat Matrix for your 600x.
But, as a Thinkpad repairer, we find that most of the time with your issue, the drive has worn out.
You can find them cheaply at $25 to $30 on eBay. or $115 at IBM

I'm a little confused by this. Isn't the whole point of using a sandboxed browser is that nothing leaves it. SAS picked this up: [ C:\AVAST! SANDBOX\S-1-5-21-3583729876-1247344376-3946384776-1000\SFZONE\C\USERS\NIGHTMARE\APPDATA\ROAMING\MACROMEDIA\FLASH PLAYER\#SHAREDOBJECTS\JG77RLU5 ]
I assumed that with a sandbox, stuff like this (especially a key bank flash cookie) would simply not exist.
Also, there is no C:\Avast!. I installed Avast to a custom folder and Avast doesn't use the word "Sandbox" to describe it's program in any files, always "SafeZone".

Don't get me wrong, pc's fine. I'm just wondering if this is typical or if Avast just makes a crappy sandbox.

Where do i set this option up in IE8 please ?

Under internet options then under privacy then advance. Pretty much the same as prior IE. There are some new security features though. You need to read though what you want to use in IE8.

what this would let us achieve is that if i was to move to another pc for example, when i log in with my username outlook would search for my signature file on the network and allow me to use it without creating another, if i was to move to another pc the same day it would follow me to that one.

sorry if this sounds overly complicated or if i sound thick, if it cant be done thats ok



A:change signature file location in outlook 2003


Seems to indicate that this is not possible.

What you might be able to do however is locate your entire machine profile on a network share, and then have each machine load the profile (including signatures) from there.

Whats up guys, I just locked my computer up by improperly changing my windows xp boot screen. I am bringing my HD to my brothers shortly so I can change the ntoskernel file back to the origanal of which I made a backup copy in my recycle bin. My problem is that i am unsure of the location that the recycle bin files are stored, and I am working on a POS Win ME computer so I can't compare the two. If someone could get back to me on this asap it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much people.

A:What is recycle bin location

Look for the directory "Recycled" in the root.

I read this article on setting a new cache location folder for Firefox.

I would like to do this for my FF25 version on my primary C:\ drive. I have no other drives available.

Is there any benefit (Faster cache access time?) to making a new FF cache folder?

Thanks for the help.

Ok this is the first time I've tried to use Win 's Backup Restore functionality I to can't location ok, BACKUP RESTORE but network normally use NovaBackup to DAT tape for my backup restore functionality but for convenience and speed during a hard drive swap I did today I decided to do a Win backup to disk actually to a network drive location of the complete partitions I was transplanting I ran individual unique backups of each partition to be transplanted placing the backup set in a unique folder on a large network drive Each of the backups went fine and the results look good After completing all the partition backups I then removed the two old SCSI drives and installed one new SATA drive I then re-partitioned the new drive as I wanted and got ready to do the RESTORE's for each partition For example to restore my O partition I navigated the RESTORE wizard to the following folder located on my network drive First I point out that the dialog titling looks a bit weird the English BACKUP to network location ok, but can't RESTORE says quot select the folder where you want to save the backup quot This is kind of crazy since I'm in the RESTORE function and I would expect English to say something like quot point to the backup set BACKUP to network location ok, but can't RESTORE you want to restore quot or similar Anyway I don't actually know which of the folders or sub-folders I'm supposed to select from what's shown in order to position properly for the RESTORE No matter what I select I get an error message when I push NEXT For example I selected what seems to be the most reasonable folder i e the one which has the backup set date and time in the picture above But when I then push the OK button I get the following error message No matter what folder or sub-folder I select I always get the same error message RESTORE simply is apparently unhappy I'm stumped Of course even though I'm in a RESTORE function note that the error message above BACKUP to network location ok, but can't RESTORE claims to be from quot WINDOWS BACKUP quot Sure looks wrong to me But if somehow the RESTORE wizard is actually invoking BACKUP well that might explain all of this craziness Big bug in Win of course but at least now explained My solution was to simply go down to the lowest level Files sub-folder where all the individual ZIP files are located and then use WINRAR to manually un-zip them from their network location into the newly created partitions on my new drive And of course this worked fine But why is RESTORE failing Is the complaint really trying to tell me that my current output drive from the RESTORE in my example O not a match for what was originally backed up Of course this is guaranteed to be true when swapping hardware which is precisely why you would be using backup restore so it seems hard to believe this could be the complaint But if not that then what's wrong with RESTORE that it is complaining at all Obviously the backup set on the network drive was produced by BACKUP with zero errors So why isn't that backup set usable as input to RESTORE Anybody have some insights for me Again I've worked around the problem already using my manual un-zip method But this is obviously ridiculous and RESTORE should clearly work

A:BACKUP to network location ok, but can't RESTORE

No reply? From anybody???

Nobody's ever done a RESTORE? From a network drive location??

What have I done wrong, during the BACKUP? Sure doesn't look like I've done anything wrong.

And if I did nothing wrong in the BACKUP, that exactly WHAT folder am I supposed to point to on the RESTORE?

Anybody ever done a RESTORE from a network location?

And what about this seemingly incorrect message boxes, which almost suggest that I'm running BACKUP even though I'm using the RESTORE wizard? Why would the English and titles in the message boxes be phrased as if it was BACKUP that was running? Or is this just something cosmetic, and I shouldn't worry? Or should I phone Microsoft???

I have searched around on how to move skype history but no good answers for it.

How to move chat history (main.db stored in C:\ ) to another location in E:\ and still see that history in a working Skype?

I prefer to store data (chat history) in another disk instead of C:\


A:How to move skype history location?

That route is pretty much hardcoded into Skype and always points to the current users' profile, it doesn't appears to have a way to change it.

You can trick it to save to somewhere else by replacing its folder in AppData\Roaming\Skype with a junction pointing to another drive, thus "lying" to Skype, redirecting its data access to an alternative location.

I want to store the chat history in another disk instead of C:\


A:How can I move the skype chat history to another location?

This might help you:

____________________________________________________________________​Create a new folder on your drive. Lets say, the name of this folder is ?Data? and you create it on drive C:.
Create now a new desktop shortcut with the following path:
?C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe? /datapath:?C:\Data? /removable

This is of course under this assumption, that Skype.exe is indeed located in the specified path. If not, then use just the correct path.

Start now Skype with this new shortcut and login with your Skype name. All Skype configuration data and chat history will now be stored in this new ?C:\Data? folder. In order to get your old chat history into this folder, or more precisely, in the folder ?C:\Data\your skype name?, move or copy the original main.db into this folder.

Hello and welcome
I think that i would use system restore to a time before you did this because you are going to mess up and play around in the Registry for no reason. Restore things back to the way they were and then when that is normal, we can address the issue of putting backup programs on an external drive and do it the correct way without messing with the registry . Make sense to you ? Post back your decision and we will see what we can do to get your computer to perform as you need it to .

I cannot access my flash drive! every time I try I get an error saying "E:/ refers to a location that is unavailable" make sure you are connected to the internet yada yada yada. how do I fix

A:flash drive "E:/ refers to a location that is unavailable"

Does this flash drive show up in Windows Explorer ?
I suggest the first thing to do is try it in a different computer and see if you can read from it. If you can, the socket you are using on your computer may be faulty, try a different one. If it doesn't show up on another computer the likelihood is that the data on it has got scrambled and all you can do is try to format it and see if you can then read / write to it.
Another possibility exists that it is not being assigned a drive letter. JohnC addressed this issue a little while ago and i quote him :

I should clarify. Right click Computer > Manage > DIsk Management. With the not recognized drive attached, look for the USB flash drive in the list. You may have to scroll down. It's possible a drive letter is not assigned to the flash drive in Disk Management. If you do not see a drive letter right click on the Disk and give it a letter.

Worth a shot.

I'm running Windows 7 and I have these four processes running (they show up in task manager):  csrss.exe, winlogon.exe, nvxdsync.exe, and nvvsvc.exe.  I know  csrss.exe and winlogon.exe are supposed to be an essential part of windows, but these have never shown up in task manager before, and I am unable to find the file location or stop them. And you know how task manager gives it a description? well, these don't have one.    In fact, these are the only ones that I have no control over. And all four of these just suddenly appeared recently - I guess I'm just wary because last month I was here to get a particularly nasty little critter removed from my system.  Is there a way to see if these four are legitimate or get rid of them if they're not?  Many thanks!

Hello, the BleepingComputer community! My computer might have a virus: there's a csrss.exe running in the background without a description or associated username. When I right clicked it in task manager and chose to look at the file's location, there was no information about where the file was; the explorer window did not open.
My symptoms first started when Windows told me that my avast! installation was not a valid application. I tried to fix it by using the repair option for avast, but it did not work. Then, I installed ad-aware antivirus--which I later uninstalled and replaced with FortiClient. FortiClient did not yet find a virus, and neither did Malwarebytes.
Screenshot of the problem:

Hi Folks I'm not sure where to post this thread so forgive me if this is the wrong section of the forum Has anybody else come across this tracking cookie It gets regularly picked up and deleted by Super AntiSpyware I'm not a particular fan of this malware tool and much prefer MalwareBytes but it DOES persistent - cookie nuisance minadvertising tracking pick up some tracking cookies that MBAM misses It also appears as ad minadvertising com Before posting this I searched on various forums and the internet generally to try and find some clue as to which sites I visit regularly that could be delivering it and I found nothing I've tried to block it on a browser by browser basis but it still keeps coming back I've now tracked persistent nuisance tracking cookie - minadvertising it down to the Internet Explorer cookies folder but the weird thing is that I've disabled IE some time ago and cleared everything out with PrivaZer I'm thinking that maybe it constantly re-appears because some other software is still using IE in a phone-home type of situation and running it in the background Anybody got any hints or tips to stomp this thing persistent nuisance tracking cookie - minadvertising out of existence at least on MY computer Thanks

So my laptop connects to the internet through my landlords wireless network.
I then share this internet connection out through my ethernet connection to my home network.

I can choose my network location on the wifi network like this:
Choosing a network location - Windows Help
but I cannot do this for the ethernet network. The option is not selectable.

What I would like to do is set the Wifi as a PUBLIC network and the ethernet as a HOME network so I can share files and remote desktop and all those groovy things.

Is this possible?

Any help would be appreciated!!

What's happening is that as the browser FF opens with the Google search page set as the home page it opens ok but the blinking cursor is located in the top bar immediately opening browser when location in changes New Tabs Cursor to the right of the URL for the page http google com au here If I then click the 'house' symbol in the Google toolbar ie home when the page refreshes the blinking cursor moves from the title bar into the Google search window in the centre of the screen If I click on the X on the tab for the page ie requesting a New Tab page to open Cursor changes location when opening New Tabs in browser it will open also with the cursor in the top title bar Again if I click on the 'house home' icon on the google toolbar as it refreshes the cursor appears in the Google seach window in centre page I want it to do this from the get go Clearly there must be some clashing instructions somewhere Any ideas how to rectify this issue

A:Cursor changes location when opening New Tabs in browser

I don't see a problem...but my reasoning follows.
Opening a browser window...puts user in position to browse URLs.  The browser setttings are the default.  That makes sense to me.
Using the Google toolbar...puts user in position to search.  The search function becomes the default.  That makes sense to me.
If Google is your default homepage and search engine...I suspect that the search engine settings are the default when clicking on the browser "home" icon...since that is the only reason why one normally goes to Google.
Makes sense to me, although it may not make sense to you.

I believe I have set myself as administrator.  Administrator appears beneath my name at sign on.  I skipped creating a password as I am the only user. When downloading a file for my canon scaner I got the message "C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\Cannon Download\tb4135_en.exe.  You don't have permission to save in this location.  Contact the administrator to obtain permission.  Would you like to save in the ..........folder instead? "  I have tried selecting other directories but get the same result.  I successfully downloaded Another program from Canon only minutes before.  How can I instal this file/programe?  Without it my scanner is useless.I realise that it is not good sense to run permanently as administrator.  Can I set up a separate administrator sign in once I have set up all the programs I lost when installing Win7

A:"You don't have permission to save in this location"

You may try the following suggestions one by one to check the issue.
Suggestion 1: Temporarily disable antivirus program.
Suggestion 2: Click Start, All Programs, right click Internet Explorer and click Run as administrator.
Suggestion 3: Click Start, type inetcpl.cpl into Search box and press Enter. Switch to Security tab, uncheck ?Enable Protected Mode (requires restarting Internet Explorer)? and click OK.
Suggestion 4: Click the Start Button, type "User account control" and press Enter. When the User account control settings box appears, move the slider to Never notify and click OK.
What?s the result?

All I want to preface this inquiry with the following this is a home lab environment and does not affect production systems in any way Any information provided will be tested in a test VM prior to execution on any critical system I recently joined my primary home system to my lab domain I wanted to retain all of the settings and configurations of my local system but use a domain account to login I followed this migration write-up Step by Step Migrate Local User Profile to Domain User Profile with all Settings The gist of the migration involves adding the domain user to the ACL for the C Users localUser with Full Control and propagate those permissions through the folder This step worked without issue Then profile size local after domain and Explorer longer cache to profile migrating works location no modify the ACL for the HKCU hive by adding the domain user to the ACL with Full Control and propagate those permissions Explorer size and location cache no longer works after migrating local profile to domain profile through the hive This step appears to work but some keys cannot be modified Finally we change the ProfileImagePath for the domain user SID under HKLM SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion ProfileList and reboot The change appears to have worked without issue All of my settings are intact and the look and feel is as expected One very significant problem however is that the window explorer exe size and location cache is not functioning If I click on Explorer size and location cache no longer works after migrating local profile to domain profile File Explorer the window opens as usual but the layout is using tiles while I prefer the Details view I change to the details view and make some other changes close the window re-open the window and it's back to the initial layout with tiles and the size is set back to a smaller default I did some research and significant reading on the Shell Bags and BagMRU registry hives and how they work I read Annanya Podder's response to remove the Bags and BagMRU folders and recreate them with default configurations Windows doesn't remember size and position of previously opened programs This does not resolve the issue however I opened ProcMon and started a trace while opening resizing closing and re-opening a File Explorer window and there are no registry queries or writes of data to any of the bag hives which leads me to believe there's something corrupt with the registry If I perform the same trace on a functioning Windows VM or even with another profile on the affected machine I see queries and even writes to the Shell Bags registry hive The affected profile doesn't even try to query those hives or otherwise write to them and there are no 'ACCESS DENIED' or 'NAME NOT FOUND' results in the ProcMon output I exported the HKCU hive prior to making any changes but I cannot update a loaded hive with the export I receive an error that the key or subkeys could not be updated I did not however save a copy of the old NTuser dat file but the HKCU export should have that data no I'm at the point now where I can go along to get along but I'm curious if anyone could guide me down any additional troubleshooting routes to figure this out The size and location cache used to work without issue but after the migration it's not functional As a system admin I use file explorer a lot and having to resize the window every time I open it is going to be painful Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly welcome Regards Ron Arestia MCSA Server Ron Arestia MCSA Server

A:Explorer size and location cache no longer works after migrating local profile to domain profile

I figured out my own issue. Don'tcha love it when that happens?
I logged into the affected machine as the domain administrator, and when I loaded the ntuser.dat hive for the affected user, I noticed that the \Software\Classes key didn't exist. It did, however, exist for the logged on user and it appears to correlate
directly to the key under HKU\[SID]_Classes.
On a hunch, I logged back into the affected profile, drilled down to HKU\[SID]_Classes, and when I checked the permissions, I noticed that the domain user did not have explicit permissions to the key and subkeys. I added Full Control permissions, propagated
them through the key and subkeys, rebooted, et voila! Everything is back to the way it should be.
I'll be leaving a comment for Mahdi Tehrani to ensure this is done to prevent issues like I had.Ron Arestia, MCSA (Server 2012)
