Q: Windows 8.1 Recycle Bin Settings Not Working Properly

Hi,

New here so thanks for any help in advance. I have Windows 8.1 and my settings for my recycle bin are "Don't move files to recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." yet my recycle bin still fills up with the files I intend to delete. Thanks again!

Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 Recycle Bin Settings Not Working Properly

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.)

Hi

I deleted my Recycle Bin accidentally, then I restored it (personalisation, change desktop icons, then checking Recycle Bin) but now it does not work properly.

I see two icons when I click "Change desktop icons", one is the full RB the other is the empty one. I do not know why, but when I choose the empty one (I have to choose one of them), it appears on the desktop but it seems empty even when it is full, and vice versa, the same thing happens with the full RB icon as well

This is not the first time I deleted my RB (thanks to "delete" option...) but, last time I found some info in Internet which solved my problem easily and immediately, however it was not only that "personalisation, change desktop icons, then re-check Recycle Bin" recommendation

I have also checked the other recycle bin threads here (as many as I can) but I could not find anything. I have been searching for hours now but no efficient results yet... Can anybody help me?

Thanks!

Hi
Can anyone help me reset task switcher? Right now it highlights each open window in the toolbar, rather than bringing up a preview window in the middle of the screen; and then when I release alt-tab, it doesn't actually switch to that window (although it does deselect the window on top). A small but irritating thing!
Thanks

My touchscreen works...to a point. If I slide my finger up or down the screen, it selects what I've touched, but none of the other functions work. I can't touch to scroll, and there is no settings options to change this. While trying to find the settings, I discovered that in System, I have no pen or touch options available. In device manager, there isn't a hid-compliant touch driver, but there is a USB touch driver. I have access to two other notebooks of the same model and both are working as they should and both show the hid-compliant and not the USB option.

Recently my computer has been plagued by missing settings, windows installer, device drivers not showing up or doing their work. I've kept my pc on for hours just defragmenting it, also part of it was contributed to my mobile broadband being disconnected (hence I lost access to windows update) and now I'm back so I'm glad everything is working. Even now I cannot access Windows Update through IE 8 it's crashing... Well at least I removed a utility called vcom fix-it utilities, these apps are dangerous to the system,especially since this one was outdated, and it deleted over 1500 registry keys, and killed a lot of viruses in my forensic virus directory.

A:XP Not Working Properly (Settings hidden and missing)

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Registry"%5D%5Bcolor="blue"]Windows registry[/color][/url] is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read [url="http://www.techsupportalert.com/pdf/e1209.pdf"%5D%5Bcolor="blue"]Understanding The Registry[/color][/url]. Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that wil... Read more

Right, I have this problem with my graphics cards that I've been trying to fix for a while. I am using two R9 280X cards in Crossfire. They're overclocked from 1000 to 1100 MHz by the manufacturer.The symptons are mainly these:

1) When I use MSI Afterburner to overclock the cards, the overclock applies at first, but after a few minutes it defaults to 1000 MHz. Changing the clock again has no effect, it just stays at 1000 MHz whether I try to overclock or underclock. The same is true for the memory clock. Here's a picture showing how it looks.

2) According to GPU-Z the clocks apply correctly to the 2nd card.

3) The power limit slider seems to be working. Increasing or decreasing it leads to marginal changes in benchmarks.

4) All the games I've tried completely ignore the 3D application settings in Catalyst Control Center. Changing things like AA and AF have no impact on image quality or frame rate even when I tell it to override application settings.

These problems have persisted even though I've tried different graphics cards. I used to have a single HD 7970 and had the exact same problems. I also tried reinstalling a fresh version of Windows, in case it was some sort of software problem, but the problems persisted.

This has led me to believe there might actually be a problem with my motherboard, as that's the only plausible source of the problem that I haven't tested. I have no idea how the motherboard could be the problem, but I... Read more

Apologies if this is a common problem for which a solution has already been posted ... couldn't see one on a search.

The issue is simply this - when I empty the Recycle Bin all of the files seem to disappear but the desktop icon still displays items. When I try and empty it again I'm asked whether I wish to delete the 18 items (even though none of them show) - clicking yes and continuing has no effect and the 18 items are apparently still there, no matter how many times I try and delete them!

I'm sure there's a logical explanation!

Thanks.

Hi,
This morning I started up my computer (running Windows XP) and tried to log on. I'm a teacher, and my laptop is "named" CLANCY-MATHS. I logged on as cheinemann, and Windows brought up a box saying "loading personal settings..." then another saying that it had failed, so it loaded a generic desktop with a TOSHIBA wallpaper and all my settings and favourites etc. missing. This is so frustrating and it won't go back to normal. It has created a new folder in Users called cheinemann.CLANCY-MATHS which is what it's loading as my documents, when it should just be loading my normal folder of cheinemann.
How do I restore my username to my settings and my documents folder, or just reassign my username to the "cheinemann" folder instead of the automatically created "cheinemann.CLANCY-MATHS"?
Thanks

I have Windows 7 Home Premium edition. Whenever I go into the Recycle Bin to permanently delete files, when I right click, it freezes up and gives me the message "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" then it proceeds to "Windows Explorer Is Restarting" Now I can delete files just fine when I'm on the desktop and simply right click, and choose Empty Recycle bin off of the Recycle Bin icon.

I have re-installed Windows, and I still have the problem. Any ideas how to fix it?

On the surface, my laptop seems to be working okay, but when it comes down to certain issues you can tell there is some kind of issue going on. First indicator, I downloaded an app called Riverpoint Writer which works through Microsoft Word. The way the program works is it sets everything up in an APA writing format, and when opened is supposed to immediately bring up a prompt for the title of the paper, author, etc. However, when used on this device all it brings up is a blank Word document as if you just opened Word. Another issue is when I download a zipped or compressed file, it doesn't treat it as such. I can open the file with absolutely no issue. Which would normally be okay, but when it is  a music file, I can listen to the files individually on a music player, but cannot transfer them over completely to the music player. There is something very obviously wrong with the set up. I've tried talking to support from both Microsoft and HP, both have told me it was an issue with a program I've downloaded and I needed to pay for a service to get it fixed, but that has not worked. I've kept up on all the updates, I've removed and redownloaded software, and nothing seems to be helping.

Hello.

Last night i hit the keyboard part of my compaq presario C765EM laptop, it froze sometime after that. Then on start up i got the immediate message "Windows Error Recovery". Underneath it said, Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Theres more words and suggests trying either, "Launch startup repair (recommended)" or "Start Windows normally".

When i clicked the first one, a box appears with "system recovery options", i click next and a different box appears, there were no operating systems to choose from in the box window so i had the choice at the bottom of the box to click "load drivers" or click "next".

When i clicked load drivers, it took me to the "system 32" folder via Windows/Boot (X:)/Computer. From system 32 i clicked most of the folders in it, nothing happened.

If i clicked "next", i got another box called "system recovery options", the first link is "start repair", after clicking this, the dianosis details say the system volume on disk iscorrupt, but then says file system repair completed successfully.

Now when i switch the pc on i get an initial message to run 3 different safe modes or start up normally, the 3 safe modes freeze when it gets to the desktop.

Hi jelintaric,

Some questions:How long have you left it after boot? Please wait 20 minutes and see if explorer loads. This will tell me if the process is locked or if something is just slowing it down. i.e. I want to see if the problem is explorer or another influence.
Are there any on screen error messages saying that explorer has failed to load (or anything else suspect)?
Is there anything in the Windows event logs to suggest what might be tying up or killing the EXPLORER process? (especially disk errors)

A:Mouse Not Working properly in Windows 7

You have ruled out mouse drivers, and I assume you are reasonably sure there are no conflicting mouse and/or keyboard drivers (Software installed and showing in the Programs folder).

I'm not sure what "formatted Windows" means. Did you reinstall the OS and all your programs?

But the next likely suspect is your graphics driver. Have you made any recent changes there?

You can test this by going into Safe Mode. Does the mouse behave properly there?

If it does you can further test this by uninstalling CCC and the graphics driver, restart and let Windows install it's own generic driver, restart to complete the configuration, then see if the mouse works properly without the AMD driver.

2- After it I didn't see the sign in screen 4 a while & it showed simple black screen. I touched random buttons to bring sign in screen but nothing happened. I switched it off by hard pressing the button ? restarted few times but to no avail.
3- Then I tried pressing F8 to go in Safe Mode but it didn't work. It took me in a screen with recovery options & I selected AUTO REPAIR. it said AUTO REPAIR couldn't fix the problem. I restarted again few times again but it only showed me that blank screen where I could see mouse cursor, I tried to click the place (by guess lol) where normally password box is & I typed the password & hit enter & luckily it flicked & took me into Destop Screen but with only bottom bar showing & all the screen above it was plain black (I cud see 3icons on this bottom bar only).

I've used ZMatrix in the past, and now that I'm setting up a triple-monitor setup I think it would look really cool to use again. Basically it's supposed to be a program that runs the Matrix "code" over your desktop wallpaper, but behind your desktop icons and taskbar. For some reason it's over over top of EVERYTHING on my Windows 7 installation, and it locks up anything it passes over... The screen saver component locks up my system even more, I've tried running it all in compatibility mode, suggestions?

Oh right links might help, ZMatrix.

I have built a PC recently, but do not have a disc drive, so I had to put Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) on a USB drive. The installation works fine at first, copying files to the HDD [a 2TB Seagate Hybrid drive] until the first restart. At the point it has booted up again, it simply brings me back to the first screen of the W7 installation, restarting the installation process again and not continuing where it should have left off from the progress made prior to that restart.

I will gladly provide any other information needed to help assess the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi everybody.
Dr. Nick

I have a problem for about 1 month, and i haven't got rid of it.
When I start Windows 7, it works fine for a random time (it can be 15 minutes, it can be 5 hours)
But when it happens, i get this when I do some actions like
Opening "Computer":
Picture 1
Opening folders (missing icons):
Picture 2

And after right clicking on a file, it get buggin' and I need to restart explorer.exe

What I tried:
sfc /scannow
chkdsk
malwarebytes antimalware
Registry cleaning

Also, when i log off, and log on, it works properly, so I believe there is something running in the background that is making this happening.
What could it be?

I'm having trouble with Windows search.

Neither the start screen nor the search feature within Explorer will return any results if the files I want to look for are on my secondary HDD. This is a bit of a problem as all of my documents, pictures, videos, downloads etc are on this secondary drive.

I can even go into the documents library and search using Explorer, and it still won't find anything that I search for.

Any suggestions? Everything is indexed and the indexing is complete.

Hello. My Windows Defender Security Center is not working properly.It's showing Virus & threat protection > Threat service has stopped. Restart it now.I click on Restart Now but it's not starting. Please help me.

A:Windows Defender is not working properly.

Hello, Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting. Based on the provided screenshot, I can see Windows Defender is off because of its service (which is also off). All the possible reasons are:- You have another security product with antivirus/antimalware capability which prevent WD from starting- Your PC is infected by virus/malware which has corrupted Windows Defender (WD) or prevents it from running- something failed with the Creator's update  - How was it before/yesterday ? When did you install the CU for Win 10 ?- Do you have any other 3rd party AV products such as Norton/McAfee , etc... ?- Have you tried to completely restart your Windows/PC ?

Hello all. I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking for some advice. Autoplay has stopped working on my PC. I first noticed when I swapped out a game disc (FEAR: Extraction Point), which had been in the drive for a couple of weeks, for another (Gears Of War). No autoplay dialog appeared. I opened and closed it again, put FEAR back in, tried an audio CD. No luck.

What's interesting is that if I pay very close attention, the autoplay windows flashes up, but disappears immediately. The same occurs if I 'force' autoplay via the context menu in explorer.

I have performed the following:

1) Obviously checked the autoplay settings in Control Panel. Reset to default, turned it on and off again, etc.

2) 'Shell Hardware Detection' is running and set to automatic. Checked via 'services.msc'.

3) Applied a few registry tweaks for 'NoDriveAutorun' and 'NoTypeAutorun' entries.

None of the above have made any difference. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

Please assist! Thanks in advance.

Any clue how to get this fixed.
Skype: I can see the partner and the partner can hear me. But I cannot hear my partner. Skype or Windows problem?
Can someoen offer help?
Thanks,

A:HIQ Recorder on Windows 7 not properly working

Dell ONLY supports Vista 32 bit on this model, however in most cases the Vista drivers all work in Windows 7 (as long as you have Windows 7 32 bit).

On a new install the correct and required install sequence on a Dell is (1) Install OS (2) Install Dell Laptop Support Software (on applicable models) (3) Install motherboard chipset drivers (4) Install Device Drivers including sound, video, ethernet, etc.

The motherbord chipset drivers are key to a successful install and there are two chipset drivers listed on the Dell downloads - and Intel and a Ricoh. One of the main things the chipset drivers do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard. If you skipped the chipset drivers, install them and then the sound and anything else that is missing.

Here is the Dell driver downloads for your PC Drivers & Downloads=

I had to do a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Ultimate and now when the welcome screen pops up I get an error stating Invalid Username or password. The only option I have is Okay. When I click okay it then pops up with my username account, not the Admin and I can key in a password and start windows. My account has admin privileges so that's not an issue but that extra step to get to my account is annoying.
Any suggestions???
