Preferred Solution: Need help finding FLV files and flash files on the computer

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

One great feature in Windows XP was search command for finding file paths or locations for a desired file.  One of the bad features of Windows Vista and 7 is that the search feature works poorly compared how it worked in Windows XP.   One of the forum tabs is Downloads, and one of the items listed is Everything, the search engine for finding paths for files on ones computer.  Does installing this program make any major changes to the computer system?  Does it affect how a user would normally use the way of searching through the Start Menu's Run... field?  Any difficulties or disadvantages experienced when installing or using this Everything search engine on their computer?Edit: Topic moved from Windows Vista to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

A:Everything, the search engine for finding files on computer

I have been using Search Everything (http://www.voidtools.com/) for years and it is an outstanding utility. It makes no changes to anything, it's simply an 3rd party search tool that returns instantaneous results.

Hello Seveners,

I come to you with yet ANOTHER PC problem I am encountering!

I have been having trouble with my Windows installation recently (crashes and lag are increasing), so I decided to run a SFC /scannow scan on my computer. After completing it, it told me I have corrupt files that it couldn't fix!

To top this off, explorer.exe is eating my CPU usage. Anywhere from 30% to 85% is the average, but it likes to steady out at about 75%.

The SFC scan came back with a CBS.log file, which I will attach. Please could someone go over it and tell me what is going on with my Windows installation?

Many thanks!

PS. The log file is too big to be uploaded as a .log alone (it's more than double the forums limits), so I have put it into a ZIP for ya.

HELP!! New member, not that computer savvy. I had a computer crash in January and did a system restore (or what I thought was a system restore). My desktop was completely wiped out. My complete kodak photo albums were lost in the process. Those were my family albums and mean everything to me. I don't have many material things.The pictures of me and my kids mean everything to me. I've often heard that nothing is truly lost in cyber space, you just have to know how to find it. I don't know if that's true or not, but I certainly hope so. Is there anyone who reads this that can show me, if at all possible, how to get my pictures back? I run Windows XP. Thank you in advance to all who respond.

Both laptops OS : Win 7

As above. I bought a new laptop recently and stupidly went to surf the net for a short period without any AntiVirus protection.

Soonafter, I inserted some flash drives to transfer stuff to my new laptop, but I realised that all the files in my flash drives are hidden and replaced by shortcuts.

I suspected a virus and inserted my flash drive back to my old laptop, which AVG immediately detected as a Dorkbot Backdoor. I recovered all my files in the flash drives already.

I installed and ran AVG full scan on my new laptop, it removed mostly Dorkbot Backdoors , trojans and 1 corrupted executable.

However, I tried accessing most Antivirus sites such as Norton to test, but I can't connect to it.

I think the virus is still present somewhere.

Any help is appreciated. =)

A:Dorkbot Virus infection. It converts all files in flash drive to hidden files.

Update :

I've decided to reformat my new laptop since it is new anyway. It isn't a painful process yet.

Will update if the traces of the virus is still present.

Any files I move to external drives are converted to windows system files, hidden, and have a shortcut created.  Anything in a folder is not touched.  It doesn't seem to reinfect other computers that it is subsequently plugged into.  Tried Malware Bytes and it did not remove the problem.  Running Windows 8.1.  Saw a suggestion of using Combofix on another forum, not Windows 8.1 Compatible. DSS is not compatible either it tells me.  

A:Files moves to flash drive converted to system files and hidden

Hello,it's important that you don't open one of these shortcuts from now on. This leads to a re-infection.Please run a FRST scan to begin with:Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.(If you are not sure which version (32-/64-bit) applies to your system, download and try to start both of them as just the right one will run.)Start FRST with administator privileges.Make sure the option Addition.txt is checked and press the Scan button.When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.

If it's occurring on multiple PC's, the drive is corrupted/faulty.

Flash drives are not reliable and they are meant as portable storage between computers. They should NOT be used as a primary storage device.

You can try formatting the drive and then testing it again.

this is a bit of an embarrassing question but please bear in mind that I am a novice at this. I understand about FTP but how do you actually find FTP files in the first place? Is there a search engine in the same way as for normal website pages? Or do you just look for the FTP option when you are downloading files?

Thanks for your help.

Jamie

A:finding FTP files

FTP is File Transfer Protocol. As such, it is a definition for a mechanism to transfer files over a network.

So, there aren't any "FTP Files" since you could theoretically FTP any file.

I believe you're referring to "FTP Sites". Usually, FTP sites are maintained by businesses or individuals who would like to allow people to transfer files to or from them quickly - using FTP. Usually these sites are technical or scholarly in nature - like a computer company having update files on it's FTP site. There will usually be a link on a companies home page. Or a user might have an FTP server with MPEG or MP3 files on it available for download.

As stated, you usually have to be told of the existence of an FTP site or server. You could just "gues" however, this is the hard way.

FTP is "quicker" than using HTTP although file transfer is possible with both.

Modern browsers are capable of changing from HTTP to FTP pretty seamlessly to the user.

Older users (like me ;) or "power users") sometimes prefer the command line FTP which can give a little more control over the intracacies of the protocol. Some programmers have built this into GUI FTP programs such as WS-FTP.

Hope this helps.

A:Finding files within OE...???

Hey BigDave

Yes, there is. OE is a database program - your emails are not files, they are information stored within the index files (.DBX). The only way to use search to find something there is to specify what text you are looking for in search. And for files, you would enter *.dbx.

However, if you know it is in a folder in OE, you can use the "search" included in OE.
Click Edit->Find Message In This Folder. If it stops at a possible email and it is not the one, pressing F3 will make it continue the search until it has gone through a folder.

If you click "Start", "Computer", there is a "Search" window in the right corner. You can put the file name (Blue.mp3) or if you don't know the file name, put *.mp3

Next uninstall Secunia PSI Version 3 if that is what you use.Then you can install Secunia PSI Version 2, and not use the latest Version 3, that is a bit more complicated.You may find the earlier version of Secunia is much easier to manage, and easier to handle for many people (me included).Thank You - EDITED to add Secunia 2 Link -

Aren`t they going to your downloads folder, set it up so all your downloads will go there, it`s the default location in Windows 7, unless you`ve changed it.

In Chrome it`s in Settings/Advanced Settings/Downloads

You cannot move anything into libraries - only into folders. Libraries are only an index of folders. But if you move something to a library, it ends up in the default folder of that library. Look into the libraries Properties and see what the default folders are.

Hello everyone,

thank you for your help
 

A:need help finding lost files

Did you do a clean install of the os? If so, there MAY be a chance using data recovery software. Some are free and some are not.

If you did not clean install the os, can you see your files / work?

Have you done a search for the files you want?

I just finished installing windows 10 on top of windows 8.1. As the new system loaded, I was encouraged by the banner that read "Your files are just where you left them." However, when I open OneDrive, I get the message that there are no files to show. I can access Word, Excel files, etc. by opening those applications, so the files are in a sense where I left them, but if I need to find something in OneDrive, I have nothing to search or browse.

I know that this is a very low-grade question, but I would appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance,

A:Finding OneDrive Files

If you can open the files in Office applications, then they exist somewhere. If you open OneDrive and don't see anything, then they must not be stored there.

Are they in your Documents folder?

I restored my laptop recently but before I restored it I had my old backup of my iPhone data on iTunes, but after restoring my PC, that old backup on iTunes is no longer popping up. So does this back that, that old back up is gone forever? Or is there a way to get it back?

Hey napy!

Did you not copy all the important files from the notebook to a external drive before the restoration of the OS?

If not, the data could be gone. A Restore of the OS usually requires a Format of the drive which will erase All data
on that drive prior to the re-install.

Open Computer and under the C:// drive, look for a folder named "Windows.old".
If your lucky, you should have that folder on the root of the C:// drive with all your
old data.Open it and see if the missing data has been saved. This will be a big folder size. (GBs)

I only do what the voices in my head tell me to do....Click to expand...



I feel really stupid asking this out loud...but I have to admit I do not understand this or will not learn, right? Kinda right??

I do not really get the finding file thing. When I go to open a file, and this window comes up and I need to type something in so I can find it, and there is already a location determined, or just there (?)...what the heck do ya do to find what you want to? I am just lost when this comes up and just cancel out of it!! (chicken that I am!).

If anyone can please shed some tech-light on this area of mystery for me...I will try to grasp the concepts and get this down, finally, once and for all. My goal is to not have to cancel out of these searches and know what it is asking me to do to get to where I need to go!

Don't even know if the place is where I should actually be at, like when it comes up with "My Documents" for example. And the bottom item, with the .xxx after it, like xxx.txt, etc...what is that all about?

As you can obviously tell, I am lost but at least I will pull over and finally ask for directions!

Mucha Thanx!
 

A:Finding Files...not any stupid ?'s, right?

Hi parrotplay,
OK I will try and keep this as basic as possible, if you need more info don't hesitate to ask,it's really not that bad

Ok when you first click on the search tab you will have various options, the first 4 are the one's that you will probably need to begin with so here goes.

The first 2 options, Pictures \ music \ video
Documents \ word \ spread sheets

In both these cases once you have decided what you are looking for as in file type, click on the option needed, once you do this you will have more options, click on the advanced tag. You will now have the option to type in all or part of the file name you are looking for, also if you have multiply hard drives you can tick the appropriate drive letter to search ( hope this is ok so far )

The third option All files \ folders

This will take you straight to the advanced stage ( as above ) just do exactly the same as per telling it where to look and file name etc.

The forth option Computers \ people
This option deals with finding other computers on your network ( if you have more than one pc linked together ) or peple in your email address book ( as it says )

The first two options are probably the one's you need the most, experiment with saving a file ( give it a name you will remember ) and then trying to find it using the search.

I hope this was ok, as I said, if you need anything else ask, no problem

Good luck, and sorry for being long winded

Guys,
I am running XP pro SP3, 3.2GB pentium dual core, 4096 Ballistic ram.

over the last few days I have been having issues.. when I open my computer I get the looking for files torch for maybe 15/20 minutes before my drives appear? It is now getting worse... I went to do a reg clean and clicked on backup first and I always save files to same directory, I clicked on the browse button and it has now been stuck for 25 minutes.

I have tried to start bitdefender scan but it wont start, last scan was early hours of this morning and no issues were found.

Any ideas

*I'm not computer saavvy so please forgive me if I have a hard time describing my problem*

Hey everyone, recently my computer crashed (HP with Windows XP) and I had to reboot my computer, luckily my computer retained most of my files (everything in My Documents, and the HP PAVILLION (C:) etc etc). However, I had a substantial amount of files (mostly media, music) stored in a file on my desktop and as I had worried/expected the file was gone and all of its contents. Now heres where it gets tricky.

My hard drive right now is missing about ~60 gigs which roughly corresponds to the missing data! It says I have about 18 gigs of space left when I should have closer to 80.

I tried running a search for the missing files but the Windows search only goes through the standard folders like My documents etc. It's as if the files are there but there is no file path and they are just floating around in my hard drive somewhere inaccessible.

Is there anyway I can get these files back (without paying $70 for some lame file recovery program) or at the very least get my HD space bacK?

Any help appreciated. Thank you

I have been trying to monitor my 13 year olds computer and he is wayyyy more techy than I am. I think he was on to me because today when I went in I clicked on folder, tools, options (maybe not in that order) but when I went to click on (I think ) options ;....there was a little icon on the left and when I clicked on it it would not open? What could he have done to it ? And how can I unlock it? I would be so grateful for any help?

Also, his MSN instant messenger has disappeared? it shows he has one unread message but his inbox is empty....where could it have gone ...is it hidden too? How do I find it/

Having mastered XP and previous M/S OS's over the years, I'm floored at the complexity and confusion of 8.1, and if there was ANY alternative to MicroSoft, I would gladly take it and pay for it.

I'm an author. In XP I had my files and folders. Now, I have no idea where my files (Word, etc.) are going. I am finding my files in:

This PC/DocumentsHomegroup/(my name)/pc/Documents/c:Users/(my name)Homegroup/(my name)/pc/Documents/c:Users/(my name)/SkydriveOneDrive/DocumentsDesktop/(my name)/Documents

When I save a Word document, it defaults to something called:
(my name)'s OneDrive/Documents

but it calls it:
One Drive-Personal/Skydrive/Documents

Could someone give me some advice re: how to just have one set of files and folders, like I had in XP? I'd gladly pay you ...

Also, I had heard that by clicking in the upper left corner of the screen, I could get to an area more like the State section of XP, but I am not finding this.

THANK YOU - Tony in Arizona

A:Finding my folders and files

The actual folders are in C:\Users\(your user name)\. The Libraries will link to those folders. HomeGroup does too I think, I don't use HomeGroup and always leave the HomeGroup that's created automatically so there is no HomeGroup. If you open the Charms Bar (Windows logo key + C), click Settings > Change PC Settings > One Drive. Then turn "Save documents to OneDrive By default" Off. All your files will then be saved locally.

This seems like the sort of thing which be so simple...

I have connected a friend's iPhone to my PC, so that I can copy some photos taken between particular dates (03-Feb-19 to 20-Feb-19). But there are many photos there, taken on many dates and spread across a large number of sub-folders of the DCIM folder. Plus the file creation dates are not always easy to organise. Putting that column in date order in Windows Explorer doesn't always put the dates in date order...

Is there a file finder which can find those files reliably?
