If you see the icon on the desktop, do a right click on that and then left click on properties. The window that opens has all the information you need.
If no icon, and then start Windows Explorer and right click on computer it followed by the left-click on it.

    Hi 1pinktink,

    Welcome to Microsoft answers forums!

    a. What is the exact error message that you receive?

    b. don't you make changes to the computer before this problem?

    c. what anti-virus program you installed on the computer?

    This problem may occur if there is a conflict between windows defender and the security software installed on the computer.

    I suggest you try the following steps:

    Step 1: Disable security software, follow the steps mentioned below

    Note: Activate security software back once the test is completed.

    Step 2: The System File Checker (SFC) utility allows administrators to perform an analysis of all protected resources to make sure they are the correct version. Whether SFC should find all incorrect versions in one of these protected resources, SFC will be replaced by the correct versions.

    You can still run a SFC scan on the windows vista computer. To run a scan suite SFC as follows:

    a. Click Start, in the start search bar type cmd, right-click on the command prompt icon in the box programs and then click Run as administrator.

    b. at the command prompt type sfc/scannow , and then press ENTER.

    Step 3: Install the latest updates for windows defender

    To check updates in Windows Defender, follow these steps:

    1. start Windows Defender if it is not already open. To do this, click Start, click programs, and then click Windows Defender.

    2 search for new definitions. To do this, click search for updates now

  • The search in Windows Explorer has stopped working properly - it does not find the files which are there, but will find other files that match the search criteria

    Window 7

    Was working before, but have only allowed a number of updates to Windows that had been blocked for a while.

    For example. Type 'safe' in the search box. It finds files and directories with 'security' in the title, but not the files and directories that I can see are there with 'safe' in the title.

    When I search using the "safe * ' it seems to do exactly the same thing as"safe ".  It does not show only files beginning with 'safe'

    My suggestion was not ' safe * ' but ' name of the file: ~ safe * "(without the quotes).

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded: run DrirveView - set the VIEW to hide
    Microsoft drivers - update those without drain in their names. (Also update BIOS and)

    drivers chipset on the site of the constructor/the system motherboard.)

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

    Thank you

    I told you to do many things. What you have tried and what you are still trying (if we can get a happening of todo list and I can check it)? Have you managed to find the results of chkdsk?

    Copy and paste so the formatting is good. It is a single line. If you get an error message, you can copy it by right-clicking in the window, choose the brand, by selecting the text, and press ENTER.

    There are communes of false positives of SFC so do not assume that something is actually corrupted until we see what files it complains. Settings.ini, desktop.ini, tcpmon.ini and ending with mof files are false positives.

    For the results of the SFC
    Start - All Programs - Accessories - right on command prompt and choose run as administrator. Type (or copy and paste by clicking in the command prompt window and choose Paste).
    findstr/c: "[SR] cannot" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log|more "
    It will be able to see which files are corrupted.
