    A lot of my icons on the desktop and Windows Explorer is more appear a normal icon, instead, they show a white square.

    Here is a screenshot of my 3 hard disks with shortcuts on the desktop.

    I tried to solve the problem by doing a rebuild of the cache icon but that did not work.

    Anyone would be able to help me solve this problem?

    Thank you.


    Have you used the utility changes or registry to remove the shortcut arrow overlay?

    First make sure the utility is uninstalled and the registry change is removed.

    Try this and check if that helps:

    1. right click on a box empty desktop and select Customize.

    2. click on adjust the resolution of the screen.

  • Shortcut on the desktop for Windows Defender

    Hello. I have Windows 7 starter on my netbook and want to create a shortcut on the desktop for Windows Defender. However, it does not appear as a program in the start menu and the option to display the control panel more big or small icons is greyed out (i.e., not available in starter edition), I don't see the program on the control panel or the other. The only way I can get to it is to type in 'Defender' in the search field in the start menu or the search field on the control panel. Although one of these actions will locate Windows Defender, they do not provide me the ability to create a shortcut for the application. I tried searching in Program Files on the C drive and found him, but did not know which file right-click on the folder to create a shortcut file. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it.

    Second, Windows Defender is updated analysis scheduled around 02:00 every morning, but my computer isn't on then, I expect to do a scan automatically the next day when I turned the computer back on. He did not do that and always displays the last analysis as being the manual I did the day before. Is it possible to get auto-start if it misses its slot 02,00 regular?

    Thank you very much.


    Thank you both for responding: I did click right and do drag the thing like that seemed simpler and it worked: thank you. Are you able to let me know how to get the Defender to make an auto scan when I turn on the computer if it misses its slot 02,00?

    Thank you.

  • Computer laptop Windows 7 can see the desktop of Windows XP, but cannot ping or you connect

    I've seen hundreds of threads describing problems similar to mine, but none of the suggested fixes worked in my case so I'm starting a new thread.  I bought a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Edition.  My setup before the new laptop was as follows:

    Cable modem router NetGear WGT624v3---> desktop Windows XP Home Edition SP3--->

    I have set up portable Win 7 with the same name of the Office XP Workgroup.  The username and password are the same on both.  File and printer sharing is enabled on both.  The XP desktop laptop Win 7 in the workgroup in my network places.  It can successfully ping the laptop Win 7.  It can access shared folders on the Win 7 machine with no problems.

    My problem is that the connection seems one-sided.  Laptop Win 7 will usually display the XP desktop in the network when Windows Explorer opens.  It still display the XP desktop in the network map in network and sharing Center.  However, I can't map a network drive on the XP desktop by using the name of computer or IP address.  I can't even ping the XP desktop.  But if I start the Office XP in Safe Mode with networking, the Win 7 laptop can ping and access shared folders on the XP desktop computer.

    I tried to disable the firewall on both machines.  I confirmed that the appropriate ports are open for sharing files on both machines.  Safe mode they suggest the problem lies with Windows XP, but I'm running out of things to try.  And the various solutions I've seen in the Strait of similar positions as urban legends.

    Hi Meghmala,

    Thanks for the great tips.  You got me in the right direction.  After configuring my XP machine for a clean boot I have to ping, see and access shared files on desktop XP from Win 7 laptop.  Then, I have considered the services and startup programs that has been disabled for the clean boot.  I found a Cisco VPN service which I had previously used to fix on my office intranet.  I disabled this service and the corresponding to my next selective startup startup file.  I was still able to connect to the computer to Office XP.  I think that the VPN service was the cause of the problem even though I had no open an active VPN session.  Thanks again for this problem.  I tried to solve this problem for weeks.

  • Folder deleted still on display on the desktop in Windows 7

    This has been fixed by adding a new user profile and delete the old.  See the response of July 6 by Dissed.  Thank you!!!



    I have Windows 7 on a HP laptop.  On a file that I wanted to delete, I clicked and selected 'delete '.  You could see the process run, and no error message appears.  Unfortunately, the icon disappeared.  When I try right click and delete it again, a message appears saying that it is not found, that it is no longer on the desktop check the location and try again.

    I tried the following without a bit of luck:

    1. right click, delete
    2. highlight delete key
    3. highlight, control/delete
    4 drag / drop to trash - it does nothing at all... not even the normal error message.
    5. make a right click, refresh
    6. right click, sort
    7. try to rename the folder, error message appeared... once again.

    Whenever I ran scans, I always include my external HD.

    Try everything what I have always said that the file is not found because it is no longer in this area.  Is there a shell office that I can remove and when I restart my computer it will automatically rebuild that shell, remove the offending files/folders?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I need to get this file on my desktop!  I have a total of THREE folders of files that will not delete.  There are no files in the files.  There is no HIDDEN in the files files.  It is as if the Windows desktop has a problem and will not erase these three folders icons.

    Once again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

  • I can't open the .jpg files from the desktop using "Windows Photo Gallery" as the default program. They open normally from nowhere elsewhere, but not directly from the desktop. No error, nothing happens.

    If I right click 'open with' open with other programs like IE but not "Windows Photo Gallery". It is not a specific .jpg file, this is all .jpg files. For example... I have a .jpg file in a folder on my desktop, open folder double click, it will open in the "Windows Photo Gallery". Copy and paste the SAME file on the desktop, double-click on, nothing happens. I tried to restart, change the default value of IE, open the file, it opens, by default change to "Windows Photo Gallery" doesn't work... I am confused?

    (5) · Right-click Pictures.pd5

    (6) click on rename

    (7) · Change the name of the file to OLD_Pictures.pd5

    (8) · Restart the computer and then try to open the Windows Photo Gallery.
