Preferred Solution: Problem of accessing file server from window 8 / window 8.1 pc through IE.

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 add an attachment to my emails, and even here on your website when I uploaded the attached pics, the 'Choose to Upload' pop-up window containing (in this case) my pics ALWAYS (but never used to) opens in the Details mode instead of Thumbnails where I can actually view the pics to be attached prior to attaching them.
I would like the default setting for this occurrence to obviously be in the Thumbnails mode.

Is there such a setting?

Hello

I want to restore some settings in my Rainlender calendar app. I want to get my previous settings and appt's. back. I cannot figure out how to get into Explorer or explorer all users in Window 7. I just upgraded from Window Vista with a clean install and cannot seem to figure this out

Thanks so much

A:Accessing Explorer in window 7

Did you back up any of your settings to somewhere before you did a clean install? Where are you trying to get your settings back from?

If you click on the start button, and then type in Windows Explorer in the text field at the bottom right, Windows Explorer will start. Or if you open the Start menu and click on Computer, then Windows Explorer will also start.

Hi... new here, and I have (as I guess everyone does) a problem I need help with...

I'm helping upgrade an office from having a Win2000 Server and 2 Win2000 workstations to having the server and 3 WinXP Pro laptops. Once the process is complete the Win2000 workstations will not exist on the network. I've set up the laptops, and we're at the stage of getting the final things in place, like links to the server, etc., but I'm running into a problem when accessing the server from the laptops. The Windows networking seems to be set up correctly - the XP laptops see the server and I have mapped network drives to shares on the server. If I browse into one of the server shares, that seems to work ok too, XP even shows me thumbnails of images on the server. But as soon as I try to drag something over, either to copy it or make a shortcut, or if i try to open say a word document over the network, the Explorer window I'm in freezes up and I have to go into the task manager to end it. One of the apps they run is QuickBooks, and they keep the company file on ther server, and the same problem happens from within QuickBooks when trying to open the file. The "open file" dialog displays the contents of the share correctly, but when I try to select the company file and open it, the window freezes.

Here's some specs of the equipment in question:

A:WinXP explorer window freezes when accessing Win2000

Dylan,

I have a few suggestions you could have a look at. First you can remove netbios over TCP/IP as it is not used in a windows 2000 environment nor with XP, it is for backward compatability with older OS.

Second, in folder options disable simple file sharing. The box should be unchecked.

No need to upgrade server to XP have the laptops joined the domain?

Most important of which was my inability to print from any of the other boxes on my home lan to this pc. My printers are physically connected to this pc. I can't ping this pc but it was getting internet access. I figured malware was turning off a service or screwing with my ports but this is a little advanced for me.

I don't know what is causing the problem other than to tell you it is probably something specific to business/networking configuration of this computer.

If the PC is connecting to a work related server, the issue may be on that end.

Since it is a business computer evidently associated with "lehman bros" I would check with any one in the know there, particularly a network administrator if one is available.

There are some things you can do to possibly narrow the problem. One is to try logging in under a different User Profile and see if the issue occurs.

Another is to try a "clean boot" following instructions here:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;310353

If the problem doesn't occur in a "clean boot" you will need to isolate the source to a particular startup or NON Microsoft service. Do not disable Microsoft services in testing.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

When you move a pop up window too high the title/tool bar of the child window is hidden by the main window's tool bar/title bar. As a result the child window is stuck and can not be resized or moved back to the original position or any where you can see
the whole window. Though you can scroll the contents and all the window itself is stuck. The child window never gets the focus back. Unless you close the main window you can not get the child window back to its normal position.
Is there any way that you can move the whole window (not just the contents) back to its original location or maximize that inner window only. Any short cut to move the window only results in moving the main window not the child window.

I have a Lenovo N580 laptop. Last week, I had to do a factory reset (with help from Lenovo Tech Support) because of compatibility problems with new software from my employer and windows 8.1 which is actually worse than windows 8. The compatibility problems caused my screen to go black. When booting, the Lenovo logo appeared and I had a cursor, but nothing else accept a black screen. I tried suggestions found here and the Lenovo help forum, but none worked and the factory reset was the last resort. Now I am back to using Windows 8 (this was actually the second factory reset due to other problems caused by win 8.1).

Anyway, everything is working (for now) and I also have Classic Shell installed. HOWEVER, before this second factory reset, when I had multiple windows open, aero peek worked fine. Now, it doesn't. I followed earlier suggestions of right clicking the taskbar, then clicking Properties, but the box for "Use Peek ..." is dimmed (grayed out) so I cannot check it to enable aero peek.

I got used to this feature in Win 7 and was glad to see it in Win 8, but it is the only feature about Win 8 and 8.1 that I like. Thanks for your help.

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3

I've run everything, including combofix

A:Minimize or close (exit) window, window stays on screen

Hello hepplewhite212,

Could you please give me just a tad more info please? When did this start? And, do you happen to use Firefox? I see you ran ComboFix, but it looks like this started before you did so I'd like to rule that out for sure as well.

Thanks,
tea
