  • Cannot delete files from the Recycle Bin

    Hello

    I'm unable to access my trash, everythime I click on the folder, it says windows Explorer has a problem, then said restarting windows.

    And the window just closes, it is there anyway to delete the files from the trash bin other than to go to the folder it self.

    See you soon

    Here is an article on how to repair a trash corrupted in Vista: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/131294-recycle-bin-corrupted-cannot-delete-file-folder.html.

    It restarts if you left or do a right-click on the icon or both?  Here are a few ways to empty it by using two methods:

    1. On the desktop, right-click on the Recycle Bin.
    2. Then click the Empty trash to empty its contents.
    3. You will be asked if you are sure that before it permanently deletes the files.
    4. If you're absolutely sure, then click Yes to clear the contents of the Recycle Bin.
    5. Alternatively, you can double-click the Recycle Bin to open and examine its contents.
    6. And then on the file menu, click empty the Recycle Bin.
    7. After confirmation, Windows Vista will be empty all files from the Recycle Bin.

    Go to control panel / customization / Desktop Icons and remove the trash, click OK and close.  Then go back and add the trash.  See if the new basket has the same problem.

    Here is a program that you download that adds a command to empty the trash to the command line if all that you need to do is type of the command in the box search now and it will happen. http://itsvista.com/2007/01/itsvista-tip-23-empty-vistas-recycle-bin-from-the-command-line/.

  • Cannot delete files and music always there but not display upward when I connect to the computer?

    Hi all

    Recently, I had a lot of problems with the music does not or don't play not I decided to delete all my e260 music and start again.  That's where the real problem started.

    For some reason I can't delete three of the albums on my player.  Each of the albums have what appear to be corrupted in them files. My computer does not recognize the file type and file extension is given so I don't know what they are.  Each file "appears" to 4 GB in size but that may not be appropriate for my e260 is obviously only 4 GB in size!

    Whenever I try to delete them I get an error message reading "cannot delete file: cannot read the source file or disc»

    I tried to update the firmware, reset e260 to factory default settings and made 'restore' thingy (where you hold registration and plug it into the computer, etc.) and these files are still there.

    After reading this thing of disk checking on this forum, I did this.  I was then able to remove two of the albums, but when I tried to delete the third album renamed 'a' and the damaged file shows 0 bytes in size, but I still can not remove.  However, I can move it to the folder music to any other folder.  I just can not remove!  When I do, I get an error message saying "cannot delete f: cannot find the file specified. '.  Be sure to only specify the path and the correct name.

    After all that I started my e260, and now I find that 2 other albums are always on it, even if they do not display any where when I connect it to the computer.  I can see and read these albums on the drive, and they seem well, they do not appear to be there when I plug it into the computer and look for them in windows Explorer.  The music folder is not hidden also.  These two albums are not part 3 albums that I could not remove, they are actually part of the new substance started sort of all these problems with the music does not and is not only now that they are the display upwards and play but are not appear when connected to the computer!

    I know it's probably not a lot of information but can someone tell me how to fix this?  If not, can I just format the * bleep * thing or I'll then have an e260 dead?

    See you soon,.

    PKFFW

    PS: Sorry for the long windedness of this post.

    Format will not remove the firmware, which is the operating system of the Sansa. It removes only the content that you have added. It will go back to what it was when it was new out of the box.

    MTP does not matter if you have never used it. The ghost album can be just a list remains in your database file. Nevertheless, we must get rid of this corrupt file, so Format is probably your best option.

    For what it's worth, to connect with the PSG, your computer needs Windows Media Player 10 or 11 is installed. XP comes with WMP 9, so he will not see the Sansa in MTP mode. unless you have updated.

  • Cannot delete files .ai

    I can't delete .ai files in Adobe Illustrator v.10 running on Vista.

    error that says "... cannot delete file is used beginning."

    I tried everything the web has to offer including: start-up, different removal software, changing aiicon.dll, shit, chsdsk, etc.

    I sure there are a lot of people who have this problem, I scan the web, however, no solution have seems to be found.

    Help, please!

    I had this problem frequently both. HAVE and. Files EPS on Windows XP, different versions of Illustrator, including 7 and 10. You can try this program:

    http://cleansofts.org/unlocker.html

    It runs quietly in the background until there is a sharing violation (for example, you can not delete a file, etc.). Then it pops up a window showing what process has the file locked. With Illustrator files, the culprit is usually Windows Explorer... my guess is that it tries to generate a thumbnail preview, but somehow never quite finished and leave the open file. You will be able to kill the offending process (which is kind of how dirty to do things, but drastic times... you know). Then you should be able to delete the files without problem.

  • How to delete files in C:/Windows/assembly (access denied)

    Cause of uninstalls unclean, the ATI driver for my video card is corrupt, and I have to manually removeeverything with the token "90ba9c70f846762e in the folder of the Assembly. I tried almost everything I can find on the forums, but no matter what I do, I always get 'Access denied'. If I can't get this resolved, I think I'm going to reformat and do a clean install of windows or switch to nVidia, because I can't change all the settings on my GPU for this reason.

    Hi FearTheCalm,

    In Windows 7, you cannot delete anything of C:\Windows\Assembly.

    Looks like you have not uninstalled properly the computer ATI drivers.

    I suggest you contact ATI\AMD support for more information about how to completely remove the drivers for the computer.

  • How can I fix the "Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.'

    all of a sudden my computer goes from fine to a "Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt."

    and I don't have any idea how to resolve this its driving me crazy.

    I downloaded the iso file for vista, the restore disc but it not start when I restart my computer. what im supposed to do or am I missing something?

    You need to change the boot sequence:

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.

     

    Restore point:

    http://www.howtogeek.com/HOWTO/Windows-Vista/using-Windows-Vista-system-restore/

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    http://www.windowsvistauserguide.com/system_restore.htm

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     

    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

  • Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or damaged. Status: Oxc000014C

    Hello - anyone can help me find a solution to my problem?

    My problem: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or damaged. Status: Oxc000014C

    I tried everything the sytem advised through SafeMode etc... Also, I tried to reload my OS - last updated through the windows update site. However, he did not - probably because all updates from MS, which means that it would not load from the DVD.

    It's a whole new system customized with MS Vista 64 bit, Office 2007 Untimate, Asus MB, 250 GB HD ATI video card. I used Vista for almost a year and had no problems until today. All of the original software.

    I have my thesis and several files, I was working on someone - I was doing consulting work to supplement my income as a student... Unfortunately, when I finally used my system last night it was ok. Now I canoe get my system up and running.

    Mark Merci for your comments.

    I found myself communicating directly with Microsoft and they were able to get my system up and running without losing me data. Hooray for Microsoft!

    My system is back to normal and I am assuring you that all my files are backed up on DVD.
