I keep having Thumb.db's appear in almost every folder i have that has any information. These cannot be opened with any usually program and come out as random scribbles in notepad and Microsoft word. And when i delete them, they come back in about 2 seconds. What are these doing and how do i get rid of them?

I ran searches in Spybot, Ad-Aware, Microsoft Anitspyware, and e-Trust, they detcted some spyware like Winfixer but that was deleted. I also had AVG but i deleted it because i thought it might have been the cause of the problem. AFter those i got HiJack This and it came out with this log:

A:I keep having Thumb.db's appear

Hello and Welcome. Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted.

Thumbs.db is not something to worry about. It's a hidden file generated by the Windows operating system. Since it is "hidden," not everyone sees it (even though it exists) unless they have chose to "Show hidden files." It is a database file containing the small images displayed when you view a folder in "thumbnail" view (as opposed to tile, icon, list, or detail view).

If you want to turn OFF this feature, here's how:

1. Open up the Control Panel
2. Select Folder Options
3. Click the View tab (see picture below)
4. Check "Do not cache thumbnails"
5. Click the OK button


Please re-install AVG onto your machine. In this day & age, surfing the internet without the protection of an antivirus program is like begging for a bullet.


Please read this post completely before begining the fix. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding. Please ensure that there aren't any any opened browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below. Save the following instructions in Notepad as this webpage would not be available when you're carrying out the fix.

I run Vista and found somekind of conflict in installing the driver on this platform for UMAX Astra Scanner#3400. Have been bombarded by various update driver programs...but none of them will tell me whether or not (after I buy their program)that their driver update will solve the one problem as stated above. Maybe nothing will work on the Vista Platform ???? Maybe it's just incompatable with that scanner??? I have been thinking about a USB thumb drive or stick drive and is there enough capacity on one of these stick drives to accommaadate a new platform and under which I may be able to install the driver for the scanner??? (which I have on a CD disk that came with the scanner.)
 

A:thumb drives ???

At the UMAX site there is no Vista driver listed for that model scanner.

Hi All my problem is this I have a Dell laptop and when at home and I put the usb thumb drive in to it I can read it ok, but when I take the laptop away with me to another location the laptop cannot read the it (the thumb drive)
The laptop is not connected to the internet at either location
I have tried it on different Laptops same result there dosen't seem any logical reason for this as other usb drives work ok
Many thanks for any help that can be given.

A:usb thumb drive

When you eject the USB flash drive do you click the Safely Remove Icon before pulling it out? If you don't, it will have a hard time connecting next time you put it in.
If the USB Flash Drive is not recognized when you put it in, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager are there any devices with a Yellow Flag or under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? If so, right click it and Uninstall it, then remove the Flash Drive and restart your computer. Put the Flash drive into a different USB port. If you don't want to restart, put the USB into a different USB port and in the Device Manager, Right click Any device and choose Scan For Hardware Changes. You should get New Hardware Found.

I'd try copying the files it won't play over to the local drive. Then you can find out if it is a problem with your drive, files, or if you are just using to much RAM on other things- netbooks typically can't run tons of apps at once since they usually only come with 1-2GB

Somehow only one of my thumb drives has been assigned to a port/hub which is usb 1.1. I would like to get it unassigned from port 1/hub 6 and let it find an USB 2.0 port/hub.

There are no warnings in device manager and the thumb drive always works, just slower than before.

I have re-formatted the drive, uninstalled the drive but each time Win7 finds it, it reassigns it to port1/hub 6. I have even uninstalled the hub.

I do have a drive letter assigned to thumb drive. Nothing else uses that drive letter.

I repeat that other thumbs behave properly. (IE use usb 2 ).

Any suggestions

HELP!!! I just bought a new PNY 8gb thumb drive for my Dell E6400 laptop running XP. It worked great for the first few tries. Today, every time I plug it in the USB port I keep getting "Cannot find HOnEq.Exe"
I don't know why it's not auto-playing, and allowing me to read the files I put on the thumb drive earlier. But, I can go to My Computer, and right click on the thumbdrive to view the contents. But why did it stop automatically recognize the thumbdrive and why is that warning constantly popping up. There is no virus..I scanned that. All devices appear to be working. Should I return the thumb drive and get a different brand/model? Or is there a simple fix? Also, I checked to update the driver but it said I already had the latest driver. Did something get corrupted? HELP!!!
 

A:PNY 8gb Thumb Drive

The most likely situation is that the thumb drive got a virus which was later removed by your antivirus or someone else's. In that case there will still be a file (probably a hidden and system file) called "Autorun.inf". If you delete that file the drive will be back to normal.

In case you don't know, to show hidden and system files go to tools>Folder options>view, check show hidden files and folders and uncheck hide protected Opperating system files.

Under the properties it has that the drive contains 0 bytes with a capacity of 0 bytes. when i click on the drive to open it normally it says insert blank disk into the drive. The thing that really confuses me is that the autorun disk still exists and functions up to the point where it loads where it flashes an error message because windows cannot access the drive.

A few days ago I bought an 8gb flash drive, but when I tried it on my computer, it didn't seem to work properly. I was trying to transfer over a large file ( >2gb) and the first 1/3 of the file transferred in like 30 seconds, but then the speed dropped right down and it told me 3 hours remaining. I tried several other files and the same thing occurred. And yes, I remembered to format it to NTFS since it came FAT32.

Since I figured it was a problem with the thumb drive, I brought it back to the store to exchange it. The guy at the store decided to test it on his computer, and it seemed to be working fine. His computer was running XP and I'm running Windows 7 so maybe that's an issue somewhere? Anyways, he gave me a different model thumb drive since mine wasn't working for me.

The new one had the same issues. I even tried smaller files such as pictures, but it would take forever to copy. I even tried the drive on my dad's computer which is also running Windows 7, and it had the same problem. But his 512mb flash drive seemed to work fine on his computer.

I finally said screw it and just went and bought a SanDisk flash drive since the first one I bought was a refurbished one from a discount store. This one won't work properly either, and the package specifically mentions that it's compatible with Windows 7.
