Preferred Solution: Keyboard shorcuts opens, when i press R it opens the RUN Command window & when i press E it opens the My computer , How should i remove these shorcuts. When i use these keys in my Virtual machine it works fine, Kindly guide me in this issue

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 ABDUL WASI,
Thanks for the post!
It seems the shortcut keys are messed up. Did you get this issue before?
By default, Win+R is used to open Run command, and Win+E for opening Computer. It seems these shortcut keys are changed. Now, if you press Win+R or Win+E, which windows will show?
If you figure out which application used this two shortcuts keys. Right-click the application, choose Properties - Shortcut Tab, what's behind the Shortcut key box? Change it with another shortcuts key.
Also fully scan your computer, and if you have a backup, a system restore could help you come back to a nearlier time.

Hello computer is Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002
I have been having trouble with my desktop, i try to click on my shortcuts and folders but they just open up the properties menu like if you were to right click and click on properties. If this has already been asked please post a link to that thread.
Some important things you should know is that I have two games and one of them i have to go right click on desktop properties, settings, advanced, then trouble shoot and change the hardware acceleration to the third one from the start ( disable all DirectDraw and Direct3D accelerations as well as ... use this setting to correct severe problems with directX accelerated applications) and then for they other game i switch it to the 6h one further-est right on Full. I switch to each one to play the different game, but then the shortcut to open anything or folder opens their properties menu. thanks

I'm having issues with both Internet Explorer and Outlook.

When I click on internet explorer, the hourglass comes up for a few seconds like it's working, then disappears and nothing happens... but when I check the task manager iexplore.exe is in the list.

I can't use windowsupdate to fix anything on my computer. I've previously had viruses that I've removed and now I don't know what's wrong.

Also, everything works in firefox... weird?

As a side note, I cannot add contacts in Outlook... nor can I download images from emails or even forward emails with images in them.

I do have too many different spyware scanners, but I don't know which ones to keep and which ones to remove. THANKS!

Using Internet Explorer 7.0 - I use a website that has links that open up into a new window, and a Quicktime video comes up... I'm using a lap top that I've had for almost a year, but haven't used online much... anyway, when I click on the link, a new window opens, and the video begins to play.... but the original window also changes to the video, so they are BOTH playing, at the same time. How can I change it so that the new window opens and plays the video, but the original window stays on the page where the original link was selected?
Additional Details
I've been going to the site using both Firefox and IE7 on THIS computer with no problem, but the problem is with the OTHER laptop... The site is lynda.com - but for the above reason, I don't think it's a problem with their site. Where, on IE7, can I find "preferences"? Is there such a thing?

I deleted a file and I believe it was the wrong file and cannot remember what it was nor where it was. Now a DOS window opens on start-up. It says file not found.
Then goes to the system32 folder.

If I close the DOS window before the start-up finishes, then OS does not complete starting up. If I wait until start-up finishes, then the window just stays open and the system works normally, I can close window without errors.

How can I find out what is trying to open and causing this? Sure would like to reinstall whatever is going wrong.

Thanks

Hello tech,
It's easter, so I realise some helpers might be away and help might be a bit slow as well as answers from me until Tuesday, lol.

I got a problem, driving me up the wall for four days now.
I use a developer program to make executables (hobby of mine saves me going troppo) called Clarion, it works OK, I made a DOSable program with it, it works OK.

Once I could open to full size DOS screen by pressing the Alt+Enter keys and it would stay open until I was finished with it, then I could revert back to a small screen by pressing Alt+Enter keys again.

Now if I press Alt+Enter keys the DOS screen appears, but it stays open in full screen for a couple of seconds then automatically closes back to the usual small screen.

I have tried right clicking on the icon, properties, screen and putting a dot in the full size option, but this does not work.

I have scanned my PC for viruses etc but no joy there.
I have Dialup only, so don't ask me to do a Panda or Trend scan as they drop you if you no got broadband.

I'm using XP pro, 512meg ram, using a Gigabyte MB, and Nivida video card.
XP working OK-dokie, sound ok-dokie, video ok-dokie, screen to DOS wonkie.
OK what do I do now

Hi,

I was fiddling around with the folder options > file types a little bit to assign mp3s to winamp and WMP and so on...

I also checked out the file type "drive" and made no changes and clicked OK. Since then, whenever I double click the C drive or D drive, it opens a command window instead of opening the drive. I can right click on it and click Open in the menu though. But why should I have to do that? What has been changed? No, no virus. It only started doing this after I did the above. I anyway scanned the machine using SAV corporate version, nothing found.

I went back in and saw there are only two actions in the advanced section - 'find' and 'open command window here'. None is set as default, but apparently it's executing the 'open command window here' action on double click.

I thought of adding an "Open" action like for other file types, but it wants some program and the path to it to execute this action. What program does it use, I don't know.....please help.

Issue: Each time we click on a hyperlink to a open PDF in Internet Explorer (either 9 or 11), it opens the PDF normally in the Adobe Acrobat client (my default application to open PDFs), but it also opens a

Disclaimer: to me, I believe this is limited to an internal website from our vendor since because it only started happening since their latest upgrade, and it does not happen for other websites. I believe it
is the way their website is scripted, but they state otherwise, and that there must be Adobe or Internet Explorer settings that are causing this. So, I am checking to make sure I did not overlook anything. Any suggestions are appreciated!

I've been trying to look for a solution to this problem, and I think this site seems to have the most comprehensive, free approach.

This easylifeapp search opens in a tab when I start up chrome. Also, I am getting ads (pop-up, text that has a link to click, text that has images that pop up), which is unusual since I use AdBlock for Chrome. It doesn't seem to be affecting IE, but I almost never use it. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing Chrome, but that has not seemed to fix it either.

I've had this problem for a long time now and still haven't found a solution on my own. One day I opened My Computer (also happens when My Computer is highlighted in Windows Explorer) and when I clicked on C drive it opened the Search window. So from then on when I want to explore the contents of A (Floppy drive), C (hard drive), D (CD drive) or E (DVD burner) drives I've go to right-click and select Open or Explore from the context menu. It is a pain in the you-know-what and wastes a lot of time.

FYI, the order of commands in the context menu are:
Search...
Explore
Open

Because of this, most of the time I'll use W/Explorer and the tree at the side to explore the hard drive etc.

Hope someone can help....and any idea WHY this happened on its own would be enlightening.

Cheers,

All suggestions welcome, as I am stuck!!!

Thanks!

Hi puertorico, welcome to BC!A little clarification, when you say wont let me press[del] to enter start up mode do you mean that you can't enter the system BIOS utility (the thing that comes up before Windows) or that you can't get to the boot menu (where things like "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration" are shown) by pressing F8 before Windows loads?If you have your Windows XP installation CD, then that's all we'll really need to fix this. If not, then there are some alternatives we can discuss.Post back soon!

Dear friends
I got far more complicated issue than ''Windows 7 photo viewer does not open any picture file'' which only part of my problem.
In detail, I had a hard driver problems with ultimate-7 64bit which started the viewing problems also I cant copy move the data I can see but no touching, then all data disappeared from E driver. So I took to local IT shop they who restored the files in question, but could not make them readable or openable. The files can be moved copied but can not be viewed, this was an improvement to as it was before.
I bought 2 new 'seagate momentus xt' hard drivers re installed all, everything working,,,, but my AutoCAD projects, my images 12 year of data are all not readable, I have it on portable driver, I also copied to new installed drivers for safe keeping but files are not opening.
The files are the same size as originals, has all info can see extensions 'jpg, tiff, and dwg drawings' but they are locked, images has green square box window viewer but no thamps or icons it is not a single file but 10,000 images and 100 drawings etc all not working,,opening.
I tried:
Picture Doctor
PhotoRescue PC
VG JPEG-Repair Online
Digital Photo Recovery [Demo]
PixRecovery
Non of this worked, it looks like my case is far more complicated than restoring a single or 2 images, my professional collections are in danger.

A:No file opens, no imge opens,, please help

It's no use trying recovery software on files which are already visible.

Just to be certain that the problem is, or is not, related to your PC, try opening the files on a different computer (obviously you'll need to install Autocad to open Autocad files on a different computer). If they open OK on a different computer, your computer needs sorting out & there is nothing wrong with the files. It might be best just to re-install Windows if it's really messed up, which I think is the case.

I am writing a VBA macro in Excel and have hit a wall. I am trying to get excel to open a command prompt and make it execute a command. The problem I am having is if I try to do anything but open another program, it throws an error back at me.

I can open the command prompt using:
Code:
Call Shell("cmd.exe" & dosCmd, vbNormalFocus)
I can also open Acrobat which is the program I need using:
Code:
Shell "C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe", vbNormalFocus
However if I simply wanted to open a PDF file, I have the code to that without opening a command prompt.

I need to open the PDF document on a specific page, and to my knowledge the only way to do this (apart from manually) is to use the command prompt. However I have no idea how to get VBA to put the command in the command prompt, hit enter and then close the prompt.

There are 2 commands that need to be executed in DOS (I'm not sure if there is a way to combine the commands)

They are:

Code:
cd c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat
and

Code:
start acrobat.exe /A "page=10=Open Actions" "M:\Full Scores\allegro.pdf
These open the pdf document called allegro on page 10.

I am completely stuck. Out of ideas. I've searched the length and breadth of the internet and can find nothing to point me in the right direction. So I was hoping one of you fine people could. Thank you so much, James

A:My Computer Window Opens everytime I boot up the computer.

Some start up entry probably got messed up.

Do you have CCleaner installed?
If so, it has a simple list of start up items under
Tools > Startup > Windows

Or you can use the powerful Autoruns tool.
Just be very careful what you do in that tool.
If you like, you can post a screenshot (using this info) of your start up items
(as shown by CCleaner or Autoruns or MSCONFIG)
...and we might be able to help you find the offending start up item.

Okay forum I am coming to you once again for a little assistance.

Today I went to fire up my desktop and everything loaded quick and fine as usual. But when I went to click on my browser nothing happened. I then proceeded to try and click on my Windows Start button but again nothing happened. Nothing will function at all. The system just freezes and won't do anything.

My system is set up using an SSD for the OS and a RAID0 array for the programs and user files. While I have had issues with CHKDSK pulling the Raid array apart it is now disabled on both the SSD and the Raid array. I tried loading with the install disk and going to a restore point but the only one is from the updates yesterday and the issue still remains. I have also tried the SFC /SCANNOW using the command prompt on the install disk and it found no errors. I'm at a loss here and really don't want to do a fresh install. This thing is a pain to set up.

Thanks all in advance.

A:Windows 7 Opens and looks fine but doesn't function

Okay so I figured it all out. Still not sure why it happened but here's how I fixed it. I rebooted the system and loaded into safe mode. Once in I accessed the hidden system admin, found my user profile and transferred it over to another drive just in case. During the transfer the loader froze so I had to abort with a manual system power down (holding down the D-Day button). Once the system booted up (again into safe mode) I ran CHKDSK again on both drives. Again the results came back negative. However when the system rebooted into normal OPS I had a functional desktop. The only issue being that even though I logged into my profile, once in I got an error. "You have been signed into a temporary profile, etc. etc." Since I at least have some headway I jumped over to the hidden system admin and went to the REGEDIT. I found my User Profile Registry Key, backed it up and deleted it and rebooted. After I rebooted I no longer had this error but none of my saved files, movies or pictures were anywhere to be found. I did however manage to keep my programs installed. But then I got to thinking about that file I tried to back up. I tried to open it and got an error. I tried to delete it and it wouldn't let me. I finaly played it all out and ran CHKDSK again from safe mode on both drives. Lots of errors. After I booted the system up this last time I was able to open the file and low and behold I at least saved my docs and pics. Just transferred everything over and am now back ... Read more
