Icons of Windows/folder/images virgins; can not change the background in the image.


I don't know what happened, but I had somehow the virus/trojan thingy goingonearth.com... I don't even know if it has nothing to do with my problem. I know that since discover and try to remove the virus/trojan said, I experienced a few problems:
1. my file & image icons (tiles) were literally emptied in large mode. But there is NO icon file (photo). The text/image folder is still there. The REAL folder icon shows when using small icons, but if I switch to large icons, it extends a smaller and makes VERY pixelated (sp?) (photo). In any case, I have inserted screen captures.

2. When you delete a file, I noticed the associated picture icon is black (photo).

3. I can't change my desktop image using the photos, I can however change the solid color black color I want OR I can use a canvas photo and set it as my desktop. The icons below the screen background images is empty as well (photo).

I can assure you that I unchecked the "always show icons, never thumbnails" option in the Folder Options under control panel (photo).

ANY help would be appreciated, it drives me crazy.

Thank you

I never found a solution to this problem. I've just upgraded from Vista to Windows 8 and everything is fixed. Clearly.

  • I can not change the type of standard user to the admin account.

    I had a very difficult time, adding new accounts to the system.  Now that I have, I can not change the type of standard user to the admin account.

    As you don't declare that you tried, I am unable to say where you went wrong. Here is a method to promote the accounts without going through the various GUI screens:
    1 restart in SafeMode with network.
    2. log on as an administrator.
    3. click on start.
    4. type the three letters cmd in the search box.
    5. press on Ctrl + Shift + Enter
    6. click on "run as Administrator".
    7. type the following commands and press ENTER after each:
    NET user
    (This will show you all existing accounts)
    net localgroup administrators 'xxxx '.
    (This will encourage user xxxx to Administrator status. Replace xxxx with the correct name account).

  • can not change the brightness in windows 7 on SL500


    just installed windows 7 64 bit on my SL500. previously, I had vista 32-bit home.

    granted, everything works, but I can't change the brightness. its default value (which is 85% I think)

    I have the latest driver from nvidia geforce 105M display, but it does make a difference. also I downloaded power management and driver power management but always impossible to change the brightness.

    also, the sound is not loud enough.

    any ideas people?

    Thank you

  • After Encrypting files, I had to reinstall my windows and now I can not decrypt the file

    * O.T. > encrypted files

    So after encryption of files I had to reinstall my windows (changed the name of the owner) and now I can not decrypt the file

    After attempting to decrypt the files, I'm promped with this message:

    Attribute application error

    An error occurred applying attributes to the file:


    Access is denied. \

    I want to say that I added my administrator name in the Security tab, and then gave me full control over the files, but that did not work.


    I understand that you cannot decrypt files previously encrypted in Windows 7 after you have reinstalled Windows.

    • What program did you use to encrypt the files?

    From now on, I would ask you to refer to similar questions discussed in the thread below links and check the status.

  • Windows 7, freshly installed, can not load the drivers, no usb, no cd player, no internet

    Hey guys,.

    I just installed Windows 7 64 bit on Windows 7 - laptop OS, but did not not any possibility of installing drivers. USB 2.0 does not respond, ethernet cable - no drivers. How can I possibly have to load drivers for the laptop computer?

    I'll try to find a solution, but nothing, only the similar problem was to change in the BIOS USB 3.0 2.0, but I have no idea how do in Insydeh20 bios.


    If I understand you correctly, you have installed Windows 7 on your computer, but can not load the drivers that you don't have drivers CD. In addition to this, you can not connect to the internet through an Ethernet cable. In this scenario, we can only do two things to solve the problem.

    1. try to contact your computer manufacturer and ask the driver CD after mentioning your model number. You can also visit one of the shop of the manufacturer of your computer and ask the drivers CD and see if they can help.

    2. you can download the .exe file from the site of the constructor on any of the advertising of work computer and then install it on your computer using CD/DVD/USB.

    Hope I could answer your query. Feel free to post on the forum, if you have concerns more associated with Windows. We will be happy to help you.

    Kind regards

  • I glide click a URL link in the links toolbar and it shows just the icon of ablank page - why I can't change the icon allocated in the link properties dialog box? Can we change it elsewhere so he's better?

    I dragged a URL in the URL box - in this case a 2nd Yahoo! email login address so I could quickly switch between accounts - in the toolbar links (the one with the "Most visited" link.

    Noting that the new URL link didn't have a Yahoo! icon I right click on the link and found that there is no option to change the URL link icon to, well, anything (!) as we can do for most of the files in Windows Explorer.

    I could change the text label of the link without problem.

    Is he buried somewhere else in Firefox the ability to do so and if so where?

    If not can this option included in the dialog box properties of links in the future, please?

    I would be really grateful one answer I know that my question has not fallen into the "bit bucket".

    There are addons that will allow you to change the icon. For example, you can try 'Signet Favicon change':

  • DVD not working not not on the laptop, because I can not change the region from 1 to 4

    everyone is not how to work with the dvd region on laptops it said I have a channel on the left but just won't let me do.


    Just a comment in passing.  You can only change the region 5 times, so when you did this last change it won't let you make another.  Be sure to choose the correct region.
