To find the hidden desktop folders.

I have a right-click on a folder on the desktop. In general, tab there is a 'hidden' option and 'read only '. I intend to have a password for the file and I selected the hidden option and then on OK. The record got disappered from the desktop. The folder contained important files and now I want to restore the file to its original position, i.e., office. Help, please

  • I just find the hidden admin profile, now I wish I had access to all the files in my other profile. How do I do that?

    I just had this puter abut a year ago and she never I would like to be admin. I just find how to access it and shoot profile was hidden, I found a post on how to pull up through back comand. so now I have 2 log in options. mine or admin.

    now how to open the admin access to my profile?

    I wish I had the easyest and fastest way to unlock my profile so that my admin profile can be accessed freely.

    DO NOT DELETE THE HIDDEN ADMINISTRATOR PROFILE!  Just disable it is is no longer available for use (using the same procedures in reverse you used to activate it).   Then if your active Admiinistrator profile becomes corrupt, you can always turn it on again to restore the Administrator profile - otherwise, you're in trouble without an administrator account on the system (you might be forced to do a clean boot to get a new account of qualification and you don't want that to happen).

    I hope this helps.

  • 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

  • How to find the list of folders of files owned by a specific user in a shared and its drive path

    Hello people,

    I'm stuck in a situation where I need a list of files & folders belonging to specific user (user is shane and shared path is------Qpmzeul\lis\IM( ) in a shared drive as well as its path.

    I created a file with the command "dir/s/Q \\Qpmzeul\lis\IM>fileslist.csv" .bat and he ran, I got the result but I got the result that includes the same information about other users also that I need, and it is very difficult to filter.

    and then I created the .bat file and used the command DIR/s/Q \\Qpmzeul\lis\IM/S/Q| FIND/i 'shane' > C:\test.csv

    Here, I got the list files and folders owned by user Shane but without path

    Please help me so that I get the path and the results for shane

    Thank you

  • my friend did not use his computer for about 4 years and it is safe enough, she put in a former name of buddies. We cannot find the hidden password. Is there anything we can do to manually reset the password.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Start the computer in safe mode and log on to the built-in account named administrator .  You will need to know the password, if any, for this account.  Once, go to Panel > user accounts and change the password, because you are self-employed. Boulder computer Maven

  • Windows XP SP3: Unable to start, System Restore cannot drag and drop ALL the files/folders on the desktop and applications, many unable to start, services cannot search, cannot copy or transfer the any files folders...

    After a recent power outage, my system has restarted with a weird and very common Windows problems range. The system boots fine, all my personal files/folders/apps are intact, have suddenly stopped almost all functions of applications, but many crucial functions of the Windows kernel. Everything seems to point to several Windows Services are unable to start (administrative tools on the start menu). I am running Win XP SP3 and that he was going to upgrade to Windows 7, but I wanted to backup everything in advance. As I have 29 000 hours on my C: drive and a lot of time invested in my system, files, and applications, I am extremely reluctant to risk losing my files and applications by performing any type of reinstalling Windows. Strangely, begin to almost all my apps and all my files are accessible for the most part, but I've lost the ability to drag and drop files, folders or items in a list within the applications COMPLETELY. I can't copy or paste anything, can't move the desktop icons (although I can create new files and folders). So at the moment I can't save anything or even a single file transfer to a hard drive on another storage medium. Immediate reaction: try safe mode and try the system restore safe mode has the same problems (likely due to the large number of system services that inexplicably refuses to start) and the system restore says an error window saying "system restore is not able to protect your computer at this time. try restoring the system running and restart again", which of course NEVER changes. It's the equivalent of getting a tire on your car in the middle of nowhere to find the spare tire flat and the missing Jack. I have used to be fanatical about the definition of the regular restore points, but now can not access them. I have backups of most of my personal files, but over years have lost most of the original installation CD for many of my applications (there are over 100 applications on my system) and I don't want to lose the file associations and architecture of directory tree that it took my so long to implement. I started with Win XP media center edition of first (circa 2004 or almost) and have migrated twice more of 3 hard disks and 2 computers. All this time (5 years of daily use), I have NEVER known so many malfunctions for as many Windows basic and vital functions at the same time. I tried a lot of 3rd party "windows fix - it / registry repair" apps, all have no effect. Everything I can speculate is there was some serious damage to the registry and have no idea how/why so many Services refuse to start. In MMC, more than half of the services actually start and run, the rest all give the error message "the service or dependencies is not start (error 1068).» In addition, very oddly, no. APPS or windows appear in the toolbar AT ALL, but the Quick Launch toolbar works very well, just like the tray button and start tasks (?! )!). If I reduce a window, it "disappears" (Nothing on the task bar), but I can restore it using the alt - tab keyboard shortcut to switch apps, so all applications/windows appear on the list of the Task Manager. A few apps is paralyzed bad, as the player windows media, itunes, etc. (I guess because the service windows audio can not not start), some won't start at all, but 90% of them work fine, except to try to copy or back up all files. I can create new files, however. I'm desperate to find a solution to repair XP3 Win WITHOUT losing my installed applications and files, before I try and switch to WIndows 7. Any help/suggestions/links/advice would be much appreciated. I'm an experienced user, but I've never met so many malfunctions based on the OS at a time. I, however, very painfully learned (years before that my system so complex) it's been almost a re-installation of Windows guarantees to lose my installed apps and files, the directory tree architecture associations.

    Help, please!

    I'll be honest with you - your message is so difficult to read that I don't bother to go through all that. Next time consider using white space, ball or points numbered, etc. to make your message more readable. I stopped reading after your first sentence and only scanned the rest quickly. I do not mean to hurt your feelings; just trying to help you get targeted answers you need for the future.

    The blackout has corrupted your Windows installation. Back up your data now. Since you have problems so much, it would be probably best is to remove the hard drive, put it in a USB drive enclosure and attach it to another computer to copy the data OR start the target with Linux Livecd such as Knoppix system and copy the data to an external hard drive. IOW, do not use the damaged windows to try to get your data.

    You can try a repair that will leave your programs and facility data intact, but with this widespread bribery, it is unlikely to work. However, it takes only a few minutes and is so worth a try. If the repair facility does not work there is nothing to do, but a clean install. And Yes, it will mean that over again.

    Consider buying a UPS to help prevent future damage by power outages. For a single computer, you should look for one in the area of $60 to 80. A more expensive UPS is not necessary. Another good disaster recovery strategy is to buy an external hard drive and Acronis True Image. You can image your system (and can make an incremental backup image so that your image is still current). You can apply your image and be back running that you were in relatively few minutes after a hard drive or Windows to fail. - repair install how-to - Clean install - how-to - you will need at hand MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - Don ' t Panic!
