Why are they not icons and files in the windows folder

No matter what folder/window that opens like the Control Panel, documents folder opens but is a blank window.  No icons or files.  Programs and files are all there, but could not get to them from any window.  Why windows appear white?


try a restore of the system before this happened

    I have $NtuninstalKB... files $ in my Windows folder. I could delete them without affecting Windows?

    P S long

    You can remove them without making the overall Windows operatin, the question is why do you want to do this?

    I can only guess one of two things...

    (1) you're obsessed with cleaning the Windows folder (and all the others.)  A compulsion.

    (2) you are trying to free up as much space as possible for some reason any.

    Whatever it is...

    Do a house cleaning and the dust of this hard drive:

    You can free up disk space (will also help get rid of the things that you do not use) through the following steps:

    Windows XP should take between 4.5 and 9 GB * with * an Office suite, editing Photo software, alternative Internet browser (s), various Internet plugins and a host of other things installed.

    How to use disk cleanup

    You can disable hibernation if it is enabled and you do not...

    When you Hibernate your computer, Windows saves the contents of the system memory in the hiberfil.sys file. As a result, the size of the hiberfil.sys file will always be equal to the amount of physical memory in your system. If you don't use the Hibernate feature and want to reclaim the space used by Windows for the hiberfil.sys file, perform the following steps:

    -Start the Control Panel Power Options applet (go to start, settings, Control Panel, and then click Power Options).
    -Select the Hibernate tab, uncheck "Activate the hibernation", and then click OK. Although you might think otherwise, selecting never under "Hibernate" option on the power management tab does not delete the hiberfil.sys file.
    -Windows remove the "Hibernate" option on the power management tab and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

    You can control the amount of space your system restore can use...

    1. Click Start, right click my computer and then click Properties.
    2. click on the System Restore tab.
    3. highlight one of your readers (or C: If you only) and click on the button "settings".
    4 change the percentage of disk space you want to allow... I suggest moving the slider until you have about 1 GB (1024 MB or close to that...)
    5. click on OK. Then click OK again.

    You can control the amount of space used may or may not temporary Internet files...

    Empty the temporary Internet files and reduce the size, that it stores a size between 64 MB and 128 MB...

    -Open a copy of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
    -Select TOOLS - Internet Options.
    -On the general tab in the section 'Temporary Internet files', follow these steps:
    -Click on 'Delete the Cookies' (click OK)
    -Click on "Settings" and change the "amount of disk space to use: ' something between 64 MB and 128 MB. (There may be many more now.)
    -Click OK.
    -Click on 'Delete files', then select "Delete all offline content" (the box), and then click OK. (If you had a LOT, it can take 2 to 10 minutes or more).
    -Once it's done, click OK, close Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer.

    You can use an application that scans your system for the log files and temporary files and use it to get rid of those who:

  • Why are they not CC2015 apps in the Applications folder?

    I upgraded to CC2015, but the applications are no longer in my Applications (Mac OS X) folder. Usually, I have them available through my Dock but that can not do more. All CS6 apps are there, however. Why do I still need? And, I have to be able to run the CC2015 even if it is not online. Confused!

    Found them. There are TWO records of applications for a reason, one with my CC App, Reader, and all of the apps CS6 loose on my hard drive, another who lives in my user folder... Where my confusion. I open the app and click with the right button on the icon in the Dock and clicked on 'show in Finder '. Primary school for some, but new to me. That's where Adobe installed them... even if others were installed elsewhere. I've thought about changing my preferences so they all go in the same folder, but I don't want to take any chances, so I'll leave them here.

  • Return of the mistake of MUSE: why do we not have several files with the same name?

    Well - I thought I had all this worked and fixed, but I met the download error 'Why do we have several files with the same name' once again.  (I downloaded all the files several times today in order to 1) works the way it worked the last time and 2) get an OAM file that is not loading for some reason any load again and the download takes about an hour to transfer all the files manually.

    To recap:

    (1) an option "Upload only modified files" returns the 'Muse has encountered an error and closes.  Why do we have several files with the same name? "error just as before.

    (2) a full download will work but takes forever and is NOT a substitution for work changed files option.

    Please advise with possible solutions!


    Is it possible to have two .oam different files in different folders on your computer where the .oam files have the same name? I'm theorizing that there may be a bug in the treatment to ensure the folder created for a .oam placed on the server receives a unique name, particularly in the case of a partial update of the site on the server.

    Please send us the .muse file and all the files in .oam related to [email protected] along with a link to this topic for the context so we can attempt to reproduce this error and isolate the root cause. If files are larger than 20 MB, you'll need to use a service such as Adobe send & Track, Dropbox, creative cloud, WeTransfer, etc. file sharing. Thank you.

  • All the icons and files with the extension .lnk and error message: "Windows cannot open these files.

    Original title: STUCK IN. LNK ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    all my icons turned into extensions of file and state that "windows is unable to open these files. I can't search the Web for a fix, because it downloads as a .lnk I can't open as well?

    Hi MarcSatz,
    -Did you change on your computer before this problem?
    This problem occurs when one or more of the following conditions are met:
    • The registry values that are associated with the file name extension are corrupted or missing values.
    • The computer is infected with a virus.

    Here is an article that will guide you in the process of fixing the issue:

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    OK, so I recently installed Advanced System Care for a purchase price of 12.28.  After the installation he did in fact speed up my computer but now I cannot make the updates for windows update and I access windows install.  I went through the solutions on "windows setup will not work", and nothing works.  Help, please.

  • Why are my firefox icons and tabs not working not properly?

    My firefox does not correctly since Monday. I tried to uninstall and install firefox but the problem is still there when I open it. Help, please.

    Unfortunately, the most likely explanation is an incompatibility with your software driver graphics card/chipset. One of the effects of Mode safe is to disable Firefox to use hardware acceleration. To disable this feature in normal mode as well:

    "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Options > advanced

    In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.

    This takes effect the next time you exit Firefox and start it again. Any difference?

  • Why are they not the white space to the left when you use force part agricultural framework?

    I posted yesterday because I thought that the stain has been broken in the last creative cloud of LR. It still works, but seems to have a limitation that seems intuitive.

    I had an image that I used lenses correction/basic/full. It works well enough to give a full display of an image captured from an angle. There is a small spot near the edge of the frame that is left blank. I assumed spotting would allow me to fill this by cloning a neighbouring area, an operation that could be played in Photoshop, (although I have not used the PS in awhile).

    It doesn't work in LR, implying that the brightness of the White is not considered part of the rectangular frame. Why not? Don't I have that right, or am I missing something?

    If the design intent, it seems badly thought-out.

    If you have created a panorama or HDR image, and there is a space, then the image is more rectangular. It is not possible to create pixels in the empty space in Lightroom. These images were filling the white space is essential, that's what is for Photoshop in this instance. Is perhaps not as elegant as you would expect, but that's the way it works with the non-destructive editing.
