Preferred Solution: wack dos window when opening vista

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.)

Whenever I search in W7, I want to have the ability to open found folders in a new window. If I r-click, that option is not there. Is there a way to add this to W7?

Also: When I go to 'open file location', the file's folder opens in the same window - highly annoying. In Vista, it opens in a new window. Anyway to change this behvior in W7 to act like Vista, so the file opens in a new window?

I am not sure how to explain this, Up until last week, whenever I download something and save as to a folder, it becomes really slow and my brower freezes for 1 minute ish. I checked my processor and ntoskrnl.exe is the program thats taking most of the physical memory.

I am not sure exactly is going on. I did try to scan with malware and antivirus, but nothing showed up.

Any ideas?

A:Window becomes really slow when opening a save as window.

Hello Faering Welcome to the Ten Forums!

Quite annoying isn't it?! I run into that enough at times simply having a second browser window kept option. Suddenly everything will suddenly freeze up! I ran into that with IE 8, 9, 10, 11 as well as with Waterfox the first 64bit variant of Firefox as well as with Cyberfox, the latest 64bit FF versions, and other browsers as well not being a result of any malwares! At times between the host ISP and sites as well as the browser itself things will tend to bog down.

The download or other sites may be seeing heavier traffic at the time you go to download some new app and explain why a site is slow going. Your ISP(Internet Service Provider) could be seeing heavier then usual traffic as well which can explain slow downs as well. A combination of browser issues, slow down of host provider, and other sites put together is trouble!

Hello everyone! I recently came across a little problem that's kind of becoming a big annoyance to me. I recently got rid of a virus and noticed that when I open a folder, it opens into a new window instead of in the same window. I'm not really sure what's causing this problem.
 
I've already checked in my options and made sure that it's set to "Open into the same window" and I've been seeing a lot of things about going into regedit to change something but its kind of confusing and I didn't really want to mess around with it.
 
What should I/ can I do in order to get it back to opening into the same window?
 
Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Hi. This is gonna sound odd but every time I move my mouse real fast it goes out of control. If I don't move the mouse the cursor stays but with one little twitch and it is half-way across the screen again. This also tends to happen in Linux but Win2k is the worst. If I don't move it for about 3 seconds it goes back to normal until I move it fast again. And I am not even moving it that fast!!! Please help. Thank you.

so here's the deal, I was going to play some League Of Legends with my brother and forgot I hadn't installed ventrillo yet so I did that and then I hooked up my headphones and started talking to him. however he couldn't hear me so I went to control panel and the ventrillo settings and started changing some settings around until he could hear me...we never found a solution and now my sound on my computer is messed up and I can't hear anything. I was just wondering if there was any way I could set the settings back to default or something? because I really don't understand this whole audio thing

I recently changed hardware on my pc. I did not uninstall or change anything about my hard drive, but when using it in the new pc, it kept telling me to activate windows. This was strange, never happened to me before so why now. So i go through so much
trouble trying to fix it and nothing worked. Even in settings under activation blah blah, it still wouldn't let me activate because "the servers were down". ok. So i call Microsoft support, and he keeps trying to get me to repurchase windows 10.
No. Bad customer service  rep. He did not help at all just made me do everything i already did and  when it said the servers were down, he told me its because i don't have a legit license. I downloaded windows 10 when it was free in 2016 or whenever.
So i never got a product key. So I used to windows 10 installer tool and it seemed to work, the watermark was gone. but later that day when i came home it was back. Then i tried the activation again and it worked. This was incredibly frustrating and annoying.
so i wanted to leave negative feedback to windows/microsoft. But i dont have the feedback hub, so i go to windows store and try to search bnut the search function doesnt work. I dont know why i thought any other windows app would be easy to use after everything
i just experienced. I have no question. This isnt about windows 8. This is the only place i found to try to tell microsoft anything. so tedious and annoying. yuck.

A:Bug with opening folders in windows explorer on Windows 7 RTM - not opening in same window!

This happened on my Windows 7 PC and it was due to an install of Sourcegear Vault 3.0 that overwrites a registry entry used by many programs. The three it affected on my PC were Internet Explorer 8 (most links will not open), Windows Explorer (double click opens a new search window) and MS SQL Server Management Studio 2008 errors with COM error. This is all due to two registry entries containing {B8DA6310-E19B-11D0-933C-00A0C90DCAA9} overwriting the correct ones.To fix this, save the info below into a reg file and run it to correct the registry entries on your PC.

Did you update the definition files for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware BEFORE running a scan with each one?

After each scan was finished, did you select and remove EVERYTHING that was found?

Your computer is infected.

You need to wait for a gold/blue shield removal specialist to assist you.

While on the internet (IE), the web help window continues to open while I'm typing. It keeps doing it while I'm typing this posting too...

The same thing happens in "Word". As I type, the word help window opens and actually captures part of the word I was typing and puts it in the search bar.

Can you help me?

I am having problems with my explorer. It all began with a bunch of malware, which i assume I have cleaned, but now when I type a new URL in the address bar explorer opens new window. I am using explorer 6 and Win XP Pro sp2. I have searched arround and a lot of pages list the solution as "uncheck the box under browsing (internet options/advanced tab)" but I do not have that otion. If I go to advanced tab under internet options I do not have the browsing nor I see any option for opening new pages in a new window. Please help.

OK, I'm pulling my hair out here. Everything I've read on this subject suggests the following code should open an instance of IE and make the window visible:

Code:

Public Sub AddClients()
Dim i, userid As String
Dim objIE As SHDocVw.InternetExplorer

Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
objIE.Visible = True

Yet every time I get to the Set statement, my PC locks up and since I never see a window, I have to assume it never gets past this statement. I have the Microsoft Internet Controls reference checked, so what else could be causing this lockup?

There are some situations where IE window isn't opening. For instance, when I click on the Mail button of Windows Live Messenger, the screen flashes as if IE opened, but it didn't. It also happens in Windows Live One Care (safety.live.com) when I try to scan my PC, it tries to open a new window but can't. It isn't IE's popup blocker because I deactivated it and the problems still occured.

This is my work laptop, so it isn't the one I had the issues some days ago (thanks again ;)).

I'm assuming it is some sort of browser hijacking problem, but I'm not sure. Here I append my HiJackThis log.

Open IE and stretch it to size. Then use the "close" button under "File". When you reopen the window it should stay whee you let it. You will have to open several window and do this so that the all remember what size you want. If not the 2nd and 3rd and... windows will be the smaller size.

After the last automatic upgrade/downlaod I have been experiencing an annoying and extremely frustrating recurring problem. Whenever I use a windows program - esspecially Explorer - a help window automatically opens. I can close it, if I'm lucky, sometimes minimize it, but it will eventually pop up again. I use the task manager to close it but it will eventually return. Sometimes there's no way for me to continue the application because with every keystroke, the help windows opens again. I have no idea what to do short of crashing my systems drive, reformatting and reinstalling Win 7 Pro, 64 bit. This is crazy making...

I have 25 photos in an album that I had to sort out and number, then renumber as I had to delete some.
Everything works fine until I get to number 16_sun city . Then for some reason I can't figure out, it skips from number 16 to number 20. After that things go completely nuts as the pix aren't viewable in proper order. 20 is followed by 18 for example.

I did a restart of pc knowing it wouldn't do anything. It didn't. I'm stumped.
Anyone else have this problem?

Anyone know a solution? Hope so.

Thank You

With MBAM I also found "Malware.Trace" and "Broken.OpenCommand".

I haven't done full scans because they freeze and take a long time. Other things freeze also and sometimes it says windows explorer isn't responding and it restarts it. Even though I removed the above viruses my computer still behaves like this.

Keep getting new windows opening.

have changed folder view options so that 'launch folder windows in a separate process" is unchecked.

tools -> folder options -> open each folder in the same window is also checked.

And It still does it! very annoying!

Have been over the settings three times. tried resetting all folders - apply to all folders. Still does it.

Any ideas? Please?!

A:Help! Folders Keep Opening In New Window (xp)?

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner. Set Folder Default to Open & Use Same Window - Explore - #215 on the right.Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.
