Can not find the file desktop.ini

I back up my files each week to an external hard drive. When I get asked if I want to copy the desktop.ini file in the HARD disk. Problem is that I can not find where this file is actually located and therefore can not delete it on the source computer. I would like to remove this file to avoid the annoying question whenever I try to save my computer.

I changed the settings for source computer to view the files and hidden folders. After you perform a file search, the system shows a path to the c:\users\valued customer\appdata\roaming\norton utilities 14.
This folder contains only a log of the entries, none of which can be edited or deleted.
Not sure if I do something wrong by looking for the file "ini".
Does anyone have any suggestions?

You are welcome.

To clarify, I'm not Andy.  I copied and included the link where he was enrolled in its resolution in order to give credit where it is due.

If you don't use Norton, use the uninstall tool to remove all traces of the software.  If she has appeared in the past about the 30 day trial and you disabled, perhaps why the desktop.ini file is displayed.

See the solution re: lack of desktop.ini

This fixit deletes the file

Notepad starts with "[.]". "ShellClassInfo] [email protected]%SystemRoot%\System32\Shell32.dll,-21787" when you start your computer

Places suggested to search for the file

Look here for the desktop.ini

  • : \Documents and Settings\All Users\Menu Menu\Programs\Startup
  • : \Documents and Settings\All Users\Menu run\programs
  • : \Documents and Settings\All Users Menu

Good luck!

  • Can not find the file init for the database instance

    I have installed Oracle 10 g under Linux CentOS, run netca to create listener.ora and tnsnames.ora files, then I run dbca to create the myodb database and orcl instance.

    Now when I run dbstart, in the boot log, that it is said that he could not find the file orcl example init. so that the database myodb, he says:

    < em > / oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/dbstart: database instance "myodb' hot began.

    < /em > my questions:

    1. why it is said when I run dbstart both myodb & orcl are instances of database, I created myodb as the General database, while orcl corresponds to the instance, here it says:

    instance of < em > data treatment "orcl": journal file /oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/startup.log

    Database instance "myodb' of treatment: save the /oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/startup.log file

    < /em > is the name of the General database is considered an instance itself and can be used alternatively with the instance of word?

    2 when I created the database using dbca, I made the password for users of SYSTEM & SYS.

    When I try to connect to sqlplus using the system/mypassword, here it says:

    < strong > < em > ORA-01034: ORACLE is not available

    ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist

    Linux error: 2: no such file or directory < /em > < / strong >

    3. the database myodb started but it is not mentioned in my tnsnames file or the listener, while one mentioned is orcl has not begun, how is it? I know I'm missing a dir for /orcl in/oracle/home/admin, something that we find for the myodb, where there is/oracle/home/admin/myodb/pfile/init file.

    How can I fix this?

    4. What is the use of the command sql, < strong > edit < facilities > system registry, told me in another thread to connect to an idle instance with sqlplus and run this command, here what I got:

    < em > ERROR on line 1:

    ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

    < /em > 5 - can I just rely on the name of the General database and forget the thing of the Forum? I'm just confused about the difference and do not know how the orcl instance was created, it has not been created with dbca, because when I run dbca he says it's already there, create another instance, so I commented the sid parameter and now I amn't during its creation and how to retrieve its files if I need to re - create it again.

    Note: it is located in the bash_profile as $ORACLE_SID = orcl, why it's the only game, while General MYODB database name is not set, can be there rather than on the instance or SID in the bash_profile?

    Sorry for the many questions, this is the thing of the instance and their related discipline, I appreciate your help.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have only 1 instance "orcl" then the oratab file should have only 1 entry - only for "orcl". Along, only one instance "myodb" {with the db_name "myodb"} must be started.
    The database Instance is identified by the SID - IE the ORACLE_SID.

    Normally, the SID and DB_NAME are the same - and they do like default value is the same when you run dbca. You have changed probably manually the db_name in dbca.

    If the listener is running on port 1521 and is started before the database instance, the database instance automatically saves with the listener. If the listener is started after the database instance, and then the command 'ALTER SYSTEM REGISTER' in the database instance indicates PMON to register with the listener.
    If you do not want to depend on the automatic check of the database with the listener instance, then you can include the information database (SID!) in the listener.ora. In addition, which would be caused if the listener is not on the default port 1521.

    See my posting in this thread: oracle sid and database the name of for more notes.

    A database can contain multiple schemas - each schema is a different database account. In other implementations of database (non-Oracle), what is called a "database", it is called a 'plan' in Oracle - but that is created as a database account. Database accounts are listed in DBA_USERS - if a user "owns" objects, it's a 'plan', otherwise, it is only a user. {Oracle also provides a CREATE SCHEMA command to create multiple objects in a single command.}

  • Update iTunes errors, can not find the file iTunes6464.msi

    Try to update iTunes on PC.

    Windows 7 (64-bit) with Intel i5 processor.

    During an update of base, update errors trying to find the file "iTunes6464.msi" he says is not available.

    I tried to delete all the software Apple on PC, but the file final iTunes will not uninstall because of the same file.

    The new apple software download now error with the same error.

    How can I solve this problem?

    For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

    Start by missing error MSI.

    The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

    Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

    More information area has direct links with the current and recent buildings if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit-for old video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with QuickTime software or a third party.

    Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.

  • Can not burn to disc.  Burn the file, can not find the file, what gives?

    43 min, marriage project 2.7 GB . Can't burn the disk, can't find the iso file.  What's wrong?  I worked on it for three weeks.  Several chat sessions, uninstalled EP 11 and 13 of PE.  Reinstalled EP 13.  They say that the burn because of the disc is a known issue.  When I try to burn it to a file or an ISO file, the program says it was successful, but it does not appear in the destination.  I tried shorter test files, etc.  Nothing helps.  Are other people having this problem?


    There are several known issues with regard to burn on in elements first 13/13.1.

    The most recent is burn it to disc, folder or ISO Image and not finding the format of the final product.

    Several overcame the issue by examining the problem with and without the preference of the Intel HD Graphics 2000 and higher disable in Edit Menu/preferences/general. And then to go with the choice that worked for them...

    Another issue related to an ISO Image burn when the .iso file has a file size of 1 GB or more. Many have reported that the use of the .iso to produce product results of disc with the player not to recognize the format of the disc.

    First Elements ATR troubleshooting: EP 13: ISO Image File Size question

    There are several cases where Premiere Elements does not recognize the burner in the field of the dialog box to the location of the burner burning, and there are cases where the status field remains with missing media. Many of these cases are not resolved, many try another drive or another drive, for some uninstall / free ccleaner Cross (regular and register cleaner parts) has solved the problem, some go into the video editor.

    Please explore the above and let us know the result. Then we could discuss what then if you have not exhausted all the users, troubleshooting of the possibilities.

    Thank you.


  • ColdFusion error: can not find the file /CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

    I know, you can google this question and get a lot of responses to this topic, but none of them does not seem to work for me.

    I have a new server, RHEL5, with the latest installation of the LAMP on it, and I just install Coldfusion 9.

    When I visit my site, I get the Coldfusion error saying

    File not found: /index.cfm

    If I navigate to an HTML or php is very good, they server properly. And the error I get is the blue/gray coldfusion, then the coldfusion server is running.

    And I've narrowed the problem to this...

    /var/www/vhosts/ - this is served

    but the root of my site is really

    /var/www/vhosts/ - coldfusion cannot see this file!

    I found this


    in the cfserver.log. But I can not find anywhere which refers to "/ var/www/vhosts/" as root.

    JRun - Web.xml is a system path to /var/www/vhosts/ and inside "bin/coldfusion" the DOCROOT is set to the value

    "/ var/www/vhosts/".

    What I am doing wrong?

    I got it fixed, the problem was the RUNTIME_USER variable has been defined in various places to "nobody".

    I managed to solve the problem through this blog entry

    The "nobody" user had no rights of access to view the files. I did the mistake of installing with the default value of 'nobody' user name too.

    Thanks for your help anyway.

  • Android app can not find the file in /sdcard

    Now for a question which is not so stupid. I hope.

    I finally have my converted, android app installed and running.  But it doesn't seem to be able to find the files in /sdcard.  I've placed the file in the folder misc/android on the playbook, but my app doesn't seem to be able to find it. I get errors when I try to open the file.

    Yes, that's all.  All that was needed was permission to MOUNT_UNMOUNT_FILESYSTEMS.

  • Can not find the file of exported data

    I have exported databases using EAS and cannot find the files.

    Have you tried to name the file without an extension, as well as including a .txt extension in the name of the export file. In each case, the le panneau panel message confirms that the 'export data... succeeded. "

    Yet, when I try to perform an import, the file I created is not anywhere in the server, directories of application or database appear in the dialog box for EAS.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting something obvious, but documentation did not help, either.

    Advice woud greatly appreciated.

    What version are you on anway file must be where essbase is installed, it will be in \app
    If you want to import then move from the to \app \app\appname\dbname
