Files I know are there...but aren't there

Q: Files I know are there...but aren't there

I have a program where it makes files but the files are not being shown in the folder. I know for a fact that they are being made in the folder but they are missing and have a lock icon over the actual icon.

Preferred Solution: Files I know are there...but aren't there

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.)

A: Files I know are there...but aren't there

Try running this program as the administrator then making the folders.
BTW, what program is it anyway?

I have Diskeeper 10 Professional Premier Version: 10.0.593.0, and each time I run "Analyze" on my Local C: Drive, I come up with a quantity of fragmented and excess fragmented files (such as 600 fragmented files and 4000 excess fragmented files). Everytime I run it now through defragmentation, the fragmented files lowers from x amount to about 30 to 100. The excess fragmented files lowers from x amount to about 1000-2000. I don't understand why the fragmented/excess fragmented files are still there even after defragmentation. When I defragmented before, it say "now you have 99% fewer fragmented files.." etc, but now, its a mere "now you have 30% fewer fragmented files" or some low quantity. I think it might have something to do with my harddrive space, as I only have 27% free space (with total size of 40GB and free space of 9.40 GB).

Any suggestions or comments will greatly be appreciated.

Thanks.

If I need anymore details or something let me know...I will try. Although honestly, I'm not sure what else to say. I can't think of anything specific I could have possibly done to screw it up. I didn't mess with any codecs or anything as far as I can remember. If you can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Most GIF files save properly from Firefox or IE and are opened without a problem with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (I'm using WinXP). However, some GIFs don't save or aren't opened properly. For example, I save this file here ( http://macrochan.org/view.php?u=7LRQONLLQFMAAMENXWTEDJNLOOXYAUFE ), and the image viewing stops once the shoe hits the ground after hitting the bear's head. This happened on one of my other WinXP computers, as well.

What's the cause of this? A bad GIF file, a problem with Microsoft's products (again), or is it just not saving properly? My only guess is that the GIF is too long for the picture viewer and it slows down.

(Another example is an image that was this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_usb_0QYUB...SdN0zi2U/s1600/penguin_animated_push_over.gif, but it was from a different source (this example file works fine, but another did not).)
 

A:GIF files aren't saved/opened properly

Welcome to the TSG Forum.
Not sure what's wrong with WP&F viewer .. It works OK for me in everything except WP&F.
I'd suggest to use Irfanview instead .. (It's my default Viewer and Editor)
Seems to work OK after I removed the white line in frame 39 (the last frame) and re-saved it using Photoshop.
I couldn't find anything else wrong with it.

Use 'System Restore'.

Type Restore into the Start menu search box.

If this problem happened a day or so ago, check the box 'Choose a different restore point'. Choose the most recent date prior to the problem.

This one's got me stumped.. I like to have my Firefox downloads folder on my Win7 PC shared to my other PC, which is running XP. I have the folder shared to "myusername; Homegroup; Everyone". I can't seem to figure out why new files that show up in this folder are still not visible to the XP box, and I have to manually share each file in this folder. The icons for new files all have the little padlock overlay.

Thanks for any insight!

A:Newly downloaded files aren't shared

Ok, I tried setting "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments" to "Enabled" within the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), but it didn't fix it. I don't have the same problem when I download a given file with IE, so it seems to be specific to Firefox. I guess I'll try posting at a Firefox forum, but I'll keep checking back here in case someone can point me in the right direction!

Suddenly, I cannot open an: .rtf Microsoft Word document file.

It is an incoming file from a trusted source.

I can download the file, see the corresponding file images, then when I
click on an image, I get a message from Micosoft Word (with the yellow
triangle enclosing an exclamation point) which says: The server application,
source file or item cannot be found. Make sure the application is properly
installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved, or renamed.

Please help me open this file, it is a work-related file, and I've tried so
many times already.

Thanking you in advance.
 

A:.rtf Microsoft Word document files aren't opened

Was Office loaded on that machine at work?
If so it is my guess that one of two things is happening.

1) The Office dll that displays pictures is resident on the work network and is only loaded when it is needed - thus displaying that message.

2) A similar thing with the document that just the link (and thumbnail) to the pictures were included in the document. The actual pictures are still on the network.

Welcome to TSF....

The dbx files have to be imported into outlook express so if you just copy the directory to your hard drive that they are in and use the import function on the file menu you should be alright, jsut copying the dbx files into outlook will not work because they are not getting registered by outlook express.

Hi,

When I click on an e-mail attachment, the download window opens, and the progress bar completes, but, the nothing opens.

Similaraly, when I try to press 'run' in the download window for install functions, the progress bar moves, but, nothing happens. For example, I was trying to download Mozilla, but, when pressing run, it bar progresses, but then, nothing.

This is weird (and maybe it will tell you want you need to know to answer), when I press SAVE on the download screen instead of run, and I specify a folder location and name, the progress bar progresses, but then, THE FILE IS NOT IN THE DIRECTORY???

What's my problem. I've disabled pop up blockers, and have entirely disabled windows security. Also, I DO have administrator rights.

I've been running Backups regularly using the Control Panel, Backup and Restore Center. I've recently noticed however that my movie files weren't being backed up.

The file type is '.MOD' saved by Panasonic camcorders.

The 'video' and 'additional files' boxes are checked in the settings dialog.

I spotted the problem after adding loads of movies to the computer and noticing the backup didn't need a new DVD (previous one nearly full) then I checked the backup files and '.MOI' files were copied from the folders but not the '.MOD' files.

Is there any way of getting the backup utility to recognise these files?

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

A:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

Hi liorshwa,
Welcome to the BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.
My name is Mako and I will be helping you with your computer problems.
Before we begin, please note the following:
Please stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
The instructions given are for your system only!
Please do not run any tools until requested! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
If you don't understand something don't hesitate to ask before running the tools.
Now let's get started...
 
First off, I don't think it was very wise to use ComboFix straight away. This is a very powerful tool that shouldn't be used without supervision of a security helper.
But anyway, no point in working on things that happened in the past.

On the Desktop, double-click Zoek.exe to start the tool.
Windows Vista, 7 and 8 users right-click the file and select: Run as Administrator.
Give the program a few seconds to appear.

When finished the logfile will be opened in notepad.
If a reboot is needed the logfile will be opened after reboot.
The zoek-results.log can also be found on your systemdrive.
Please post the logfile for further review in your next comment.
Can you give me a bit more information on why you've used ComboFix? Were you having trouble with some sort of infection? Are there still problems present or is this the only problem you're experiencing?

There are at times other weird things too.

In the past I have received emails from friends that had links in them that were not sent by those friends. I've alerted them to the problem and most have responded with "Sorry, it wasn't me". The links vary from prescription drugs from Canada and Viagra ads to whatever.
Well, now it is me that is apparently sending these things out under my email. Is there anyway short of deleting the account to stop it? Would a change of password help?
I've alerted my friends not to open or click any link or attachment but it would be nice to keep the account if possible.
BTW, this happens to be a Yahoo account but I doubt that makes much difference.

Today I switched on Windows 7 on a computer that I don't use very often, I have far too many, only one of my pc's gets used regularly. There were about 19 updates offered. Looking through them, I weeded out KB3035583 and KB2952664. After installing the remainder, I had a look through the installed updates, and found:

All KB 3035583, that's 5 hits at least.

No, both updates are once again on offer, and after hiding 3035583 the other week, I have just hidden both of them.

Hi all
I've recently downloaded adaware and spy bot S&D to help this comp

my virus scanner is detecting virus' with application names that use both adaware and spy bot in the names..

I'm wondering if this means that the programs are helping it to find them and then deleting them,or if these programs actually have malware attached?!

A:aren't these supposed to help?

What are the paths to the viruses detected? That would determine if they were in the quarantine files of either Ad-Aware or Spybot. If you could provide an example, it would clarify the question. I have never read anything to indicate that either Ad-AwareSE or Spybot have ANY malware in their application downloads.

Since I formatted the partition and reinstalled windows XP(home edition), I can't see videos right. Before formatting, I had the same windows, just different codecs. Now I installed at first the same codecs, and now they are uninstalled, but its quite the same. By not seeing vids right I mean that some frames are skipped, so I see parts.

Hi guys,
i'd previously started a thread on this but perhaps i angled it wrong.
I have some photos/videos i accidently coppied over whilst on holidays. I've tried using previous versions etc. to no avail. Anyway i was scrolling through again, and not only do the thumbnails still exist, BUT, when i view as a slideshow, the photos pretty much load when it says 'loading' and then switch to the replaced photo. My point is, surely if it can load a blurry version of the picture, the file must be somewhere on the HDD still? I've attached a screenshot for illustration

A:Why aren't these images recoverable?

You may try your luck with PhotoRec. Guide to using PhotoRec recovery software.

In the file types to be recovered select only jpg or whatever is your photo format, so that it will look only for that category of files and rebuild/recover - if possible - , shortening the search time.

Hi, this is my first post and im not sure if this is the right forum for my problem.
So I have this 6 year old laptop, I recently did a clean windows XP reinstall for it. After installing Internet, Graphics and Audio drivers, some programs still don't work. They either have graphics problems or they crash at start. Some don't even start up, although they are in the processes list in task manager
They work perfectly in my other computer also running XP.

Why don't they work with this one?

If you need any additional details then just ask, but also tell me how to find them.

I recently re-installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro because of a patched user32 virus that caused me problems (it seems to be gone now since the re-install).

But now since I re-installed Windows XP, my dvd and cd drives don't show up in Windows. In BIOS they are recognized as ch.0 master and ch.0 slave drives. But in Windows they're not there in My Computer or Device Manager. I pop in a disc and it spins around but nothing happens.

Does anyone know what's wrong? I know it's not jumper cable problems because they worked fine before the re-install.

I don't have Service Pack 2 yet because I wanted to wait until I could back up my files on DVD before I upgraded, but since I can't burn or use my drives I don't want to take the risk yet.

Any ideas of what could be wrong? Thanks.

A:USB Ports Aren't Working

There can be many explanations for this, probably most commonly a virus of some sort. Or, there might be a problem within your computer, depending on how everything is connected. If it becomes necessary, you may need to bring it into a repair shop.

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and see if the CD-ROM's appear there. If they do see if theres a problem with them.

This is a common solution to drives that have disappeared from My Computer and have one of the mentioned error codes in Device Manager: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060/EN-US/

Hi everybody!

When I try to use any Apps by searching for them in the Start Screen, I receive the following error.

What is the resolution to fix this?

Hello snortastic,

Do the apps open if you do so directly instead of by searching?

For now, you might see if the items in the tutorial below may be able to help fix your apps.

A:Things just aren't adding up..

The P2P programs you have installed expose you to risks because of the nature of the P2P file sharing process. File sharing/P2P programs rely on members giving and gaining unrestricted access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. It also exposes you to very malicious worms and trojans. You change those risky default settings to a safer configuration but the act of downloading files from an anonymous source greatly increases your exposure to infection.

I suggest you go to add/remove programs and remove all P2P programs!
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Ugrading Java:

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 3.
Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
Click the "Download" button to the right.
Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
The page will refresh.
Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

Hey Gang I m using a store brand of DVDRW I purchased them several months ago Recently I recorded some movies on to several of them At the time they worked Disks Aren't Working DVD-R fine Today I tried them again on my DVD-R Disks Aren't Working PC DVD-R Disks Aren't Working DVDRW and they didn t show up I cleaned them and they showed up as a mpg that didnt play They should be VOB files Right now I get the error saying quot E is not accessible Incorrect function quot I then put them in my TV-DVD player and I got a message that no disk was found Is there anything I can do to restore these files Not all the disks have this problem It seems to happen with the disks I recorded in the last couple of days I used Nero to record them I flashed my hardware recently to accomodate the newer disks When this started happening I flashed them again downward Still no joy I hear some kind of weird sound coming out of the DVD player when I tried to play them I to sounds like it is trying to grab hold of something but having no luck nbsp

A:DVD-R Disks Aren't Working

I'm using a store brand of DVDRW.Click to expand...

Always buy quality media. Store brands usually aren't. Also, DVDRW media, isn't very reliable. Use DVD-R as you listed in the title of the thread. You can try this, but I don't think it's gonna fix your problem. I think your problem is the media you used.

Go into your Device Manager, and find your drive. Right click on it, and choose "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install new a driver for you.

I have tried to tell people that this is what happens when you use Memorex, Khypermedia, and most store brands of media (mostly any media made in Taiwan. Verbatim is the exception). They record ok, and look ok the first time or two you watch them. But when you go back, to watch them again, they may be unwatchable. When buying blank dvds, look on the package for "Made In Japan". It's usually near the bar code. That's not saying you'll never have problems. But you'll have a lot less problems associated with bad media. Sony, Maxell,and Fuji, are good brands, if you get the ones "Made In Japan" (MIJ). MIJ Fuji discs are getting very hard to find though. Verbatim is the only Taiwan made (MIT) media, you should consider.

If the reinstall of the hardware, through the device manager works, I'd copy your discs over to better media, while you can. If it doesn't, I don't think there's much you can do to save what you've burned. I think most software used to encode and burn dvds, puts the files in a folder, on your hard drive. You may find the files for one burned dvd. If you used the same software to do all the dvds, it uses the same folder and overwrites what's in it, each time you do another dvd. That's why I say you might find files for one dvd you burned.
Good luck!

A:Certain websites aren't loading

The problem is most likely Norton.
It usually is.
Norton doesn't uninstall very well so when you did uninstall it likely left whatever is the cause..
Use the link below to uninstall it and then if you wish you can reinstall it.
Be sure to use the newest version when you reinstall.

I used to have a USB headset which were plugged into the USB port and were working fine, but I decided to upgrade to a set which use the headphone and microphone inputs, not the USB port. I unplugged the old ones, plugged in the new ones and turned my computer on, but they aren't being recognised at all. I tried going into my sound settings in the Control Panel but it says "No Audio Device", "No Playback Devices" and "No Recording Devices" in the Volume, Sound Playback and Sound Recording parts respectively.

There aren't any drivers that I know of that need to be installed, so what can I do to get the computer to recognise them?

well as far as i know if its plugged into the speaker and mic ports the computer wont recognize it but it should still work jus like if u plugged speakers and a mic into those ports it would not say this in ur device manager but theyd b connected and working but if they are not working then it may b a soundcard issue?

Press F2 and see if the amount of memory you have matches what is in setup. If it does save and exit and see if the message goes away. If not then we have something to figure out. Also check your drive connections.

DVD's as recognised I ve also bought different types of DVD and it still says the same thing Last week i was going to burn a DVD and the blank Disc I inserted didn t automatically come up with the little wizard thing and I was impatient and went in to My computer and clicked the DVD drive part to open the disc that way and when I did it said something about formatting the disk or the drive im not sure which I thought I cancelled it but i m not sure now and it s since then DVD's aren't recognised as recordable. that it says all my DVDs are DVD's aren't recognised as recordable. not recordable Any help in trying to resolve what I ve done would be greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:DVD's aren't recognised as recordable.

Try uninstalling the DVD in Device Manager and rebooting the machine and let Windows discover it again. If that doesn't do it, please download Nero Info Tool and post a screen shot of the Drive tab here.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to TSG, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Hi,
My headphones are plugged into the headphone jack but when I play sound it only goes through the speakers, not the headphones.

I tried going to Playback Devices and enabling them, but headphones don't even show up as an option.
 

A:Headphones aren't being recognized

I had this happen to my dell computer and the helpdesk went in there and either updated the audio driver in control panel under device manager or deleting the audio driver and rebooting it so windows rerecognized it. try those.

hello vista forums

for some reason, some websites aren't loading ! im using mozilla firefox

A:some websites aren't loading!

What is your exact error you are getting? Simply the fact "They are not loading" is vague and would be helpful to find a solution easier.

Just today, while I was going on YouTube to watch some videos, I turned on my speakers and played the video. For some reason, the sound didn't come out. I turned the speakers on and off, but that didn't work. I unplugged the wire hooking it up to the computer, but that didn't work either.

Please, someone help me fix this problem. I don't want to resort to buying new ones.
 

A:Speakers aren't working

Why not start with some details about the configuration? Also, did you try plugging earphones in the speaker jack to see if it's the computer or the speakers? I'd do that before I bought new speakers!

Hey, so somehow I got websave on my computer, and it was really annoying so I downloaded adwcleaner to fix it, then I ran the software then restarted my computer. When I restarted, I couldn't open mozilla, so I deleted it then used internet explorer (which works fine) to redownload it. That didn't work so I tried google chrome. That didn't work either. In both cases when I tried opening the browser I opened windows task manager to see what was going on. Both times the browser would load up to about 2000 K then stop, at the same time it was loading, windows problem reporting would load to about the same memory the stop suddenly as well. I don't know what the problem is... Please help me. Thank you

A:Browsers aren't working

Try starting Firefox in Safe Mode. Hold down the Shift Key while starting Firefox. You may have a add-on that is keeping Firefox from starting.

OK, so I'll try to keep this as brief as I can,

I have a L4VXA2 motherboard and operate on windows XP SP3. (if that info is needed at all)

Currently, my usb ports have not been recognizing anything I plug into them.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers twice, still nothing works.
When I try and fix it, it keeps telling me the INF is formatted for windows 95 or later (or something like that)

So now, I have downloaded a VIA USB 2.0 Host Controller, extracted the files, everything was going fine, but now the setup wont run! For the first few times I clicked on it, it kept saying "the setup has detected that unInstallShield is in use. Please close uninstall shield and restart setup Error 432". I rebooted the computer and tried again multiple times. Now the error message doesn't even show up.

I have NO idea what to do, please, PLEASE help :'(

I went to microsoft/windows and did the download and install. After restarted my PC I can only get 4 bit color and screen resolution can't be set any higher than 600x800.
I did a virus scan and avg found nothing.
Any suggestions?
 

A:Things just aren't right after installing SP2

What are your system specs? Are you running XP? If you are, and only running XP SP1, you are way behind the times... You will have to do a fresh Operating System install all the way to XP Service Pack 3

Some updates like this IE8 security update that was released the 14th, we're not getting in Windows update. Why?

Shouldn't we at least get important or critical security updates even in the lastest builds? I could see why maybe not other less important updates but critical security ones?

And when I try to install it says it's not applicable to my system but updates like this one should clearly be applicable, no?

A:Why aren't we getting some important Updates

It could be that the issues these fix are already fixed in later builds. 7000 is still the only 1 (according to M$) that the public have and IE8 on that was too buggy. As far as I can tell build 7057 upwards have the full IE8 and not just the beta that's packed with 7000.

I checked the device manager and it says that the device is working properly for both of the webcams but when I check it with the hp camera it tells me that the camera is either used by another software or is not connected. it also doesn't work on other stuff like skype and fb and others. Can somebody help me please.

Hello Moredhel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

First Issue:
Only the pinned programs on the taskbar will use the Windows key + #(1to0) to open them with. You can add a Ctrl+Alt+letter keyboard shortcut for the Quick Launch items though. The pinned icons that have a open window for it will be highlighted to help tell the difference between them.


Second Issue:
You can press Shift then right click on the pinned icon to see the context menu for it instead of the jump list one.

Hope this helps,
