Can't exit Properties window for C drive after sharing

Q: Can't exit Properties window for C drive after sharing

I turned on sharing for the C drive and added an Everyone group in Security to allow access to my other computer on my network. When I go to close the Properties window I a message that says "You are about to change the permissions settings on the root directory of the startup disk which can result in unexpected access problems and reduce security. Do you want to continue?".

I answered yes and it went through all the folders and gave an access denied message on system folders. After if was done I got the same message mentioned when I tried to exit the Properties window. So I removed sharing and the Everyone group. But I'm still in the same situation. I keep going through the same loop and can not exit the Properties window.

The problem is when I right click on the hard drive in "My Computer", and click on either properties or sharing, nothing happens.
I have looked at other forums which say to run scan disk and virus scan. I have done that. I was able to run scan disk from dos. I keep getting no errors/viruses, but I still can't share or view properties. I was also able to start the computer in safe mode, start scan disk, reboot and have it run scan disk in dos mode. This still didn't work. I ran Fix-It Utilities 2000 and it still isn't fixed.

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

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,

This happens on several machines at work.  I can setup 4 identical machines and it happens on one of them.
Machine reboots and you can't log on to the machine with domain credentials (unless cached).    
If you go to command prompt and try to ping another computer on the network it will not get a response.
The workaround is to open the network adapter properties in network neighborhood and open the TCP/IP v4 properties.  Check the box at the bottom that says "Validate Settings on Exit" and click ok twice to close the TCP/IP properties and the
Network adapter properties.   After it has run the 'validate settings' everything works fine now.   If you reboot you have to repeat the process.
If I could find for a way to trigger the 'validate settings on exit' via script or commandline, then I could add it to the startup process as a workaround if a permanent fix is not available.
Thank you for any help.

Hi all!
I am new to the forum, just registered and I have a very weird question.

Do you know how sometimes after you installed a new software program, - you open it, work with it whatever and then on exit there is a pop-up window asking you to exit or to minimize or it may ask you something else.
Not all programs do that. Anyway on that pop-up window there is usually a box - you can put tick in it if you don't want to see that pop-up window ever again and in my case I did that.
Now who can tell me how to get this pop-up window back on exit?
I tried re-installing the program and it did not help. In fact the re-installed program somehow remembered all my settings from previous setup.
Anyone can help me with that please?

Just want to add.
The program is called Synkron. On exit it asks you to exit or to minimize. If you choose exit it will always exit completely, if you choose minimize - it will go to taskbar when you hit a cross and that's what I desperately need but I chosen exit by mistake and now I never get to see the pop-up window again. There is nothing in the options to change that. Re-installation will not help.
I know there the way to change that. Hope someone knows the answer.

Thanks!!!

Okay, so I downloaded a call of duty 4 single player demo and tried installing it. The setup was taking a while, and when it finally loaded up I proceeded with the further installation process. For some reason, something in the installation went wrong so I cancelled it. Since then everytime I exit a window in my computer(only windows that go into my documents, my computer, other local folders etc.) windows explorer stops responding and then restarts. This is very annoying as it freezes for about 10 seconds and then explorer comes back on. Other programs are fine when I exit them, its only when I use something related to explorer. Can somebody help? Is There a way to reinstall explorer or something? Help would be very much appreciated.

Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

I couldn?t figure out the difference between sharing a particular folder and granting security control on it. Are these two options doing the same kind of work (attached)?

What might be the critical difference between sharing a folder and granting security control on it?

Thank you very much

Best

Jamal

A:Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

When you share a folder or drive you give people on computers other than which the share is located access to objects within that folder or drive.

Share permissions determine what a user can do with the SHARE itself. Granting full control to a share is generally not recommended. A general rule of thumb is that you grant only the permissions required for the access needed and no more.

The security permissions determine what a user can do with oibjects WITHIN the share. Again, you would generally not grant full control, as this allows the user to take ownership, delete everything, and change permissions and could even lock everyone else out of access to the objects within that share.

I have a server with 15TB of storage. On it we have our personal folders. They are centralised for backup and purposes. The shares are called Tanya, Peyton, Trent and Public. Each share has a permission of CHANGE.

The security for these shares are set to allow access only to the person whose folder it is. Eg Peyton has Modify rights to his folder, but no one else can access it, except the administrator, and only from the server. The public folder has USERS(modify), so that we can all acess stuff in that folder.

So, SHARE permissions determine what can be done with a SHARE, and security permissions determine what can be done with files, folders, and other objects that are stored ON THAT SHARE.

If I change the folder properties accessing a shared folder (say pictures) over my home network, will it alter the folder's properties on the drive on which it resides or just the folder on the machine I am using to access the folder?

I am accessing my pictures folder on my desktop from my laptop from the other side of my house. The pictures and videos folders are set to "general items", the customize tab of the properties on the folder is set to "general items" when I access it from the laptop.

I've got two machines (laptop and pc) on my home network, both with XP Pro SP2 on them, fully patched. Network runs fine. When I first installed XP (ages ago) I shared folders on both machines. Over time I now only have 1 folder shared on one machine. Today I need to share some others. When I right click on the folder and select sharing, nothing happens except that the Explorer window loses focus (as if the sharing window has popped up but nothing has appeared).
NOTE: I can share C, D or any other drive but not the folders in the drive (C is unshared when I try to share the folders).
For the machine that has the shared folder, I now cannot unshare it!

Also if I select a folder, right click and then select properties, the same thing happens (except on C, D etc where I get the properties window to appear).

I can copy files from one machine to the other. I have rerun the network wizard on both machines and told it to share. I have created a new admin account, rebooted and tried from there, no luck. I booted up under safe mode and when I selected properties from a folder, the properties window appeared, yeh. But... it will not do so under normal mode (shame I can't share under safe mode, that would do for a work around). I have run scannow, no change.

Scroll down to and double click: Server service |

When it has started, click OK

Open Group Policy...

Navigate to...
Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\
Remove the Security tab
Set to Not Configured or Disabled.
They have not worked. I am stumped for ideas.
I have reformatted today to fix previous problems that were unrelated, it is unlikely that anything i have done in the last 30 hours has done anything.

In programming an Internet Explorer addon for Windows, prior to Vista, I had designed a system whereby an administrator would set certain properties from an application and any other user, who logged on to the OS and used IE, could then have those properties read by the addon.

The administrator setting those properties did so from a separate application of the product, which needed administrative rights in order to run. That application used the HKLM registry hive, under SOFTWARE\MyApplication, to set the data properties for MyApplication.

This no longer works in Vista unless the user starts IE as an administrator, which requires administrator rights, due to registry virtualization I believe. In Vista Imposing that requirement on the user, to have administrative rights to use IE in order to use my addon, is not a viable option.

What then is the methodology in Vista for sharing common data between multiple users who logon to Vista on a single machine at separate times using different logons ?

Is the common data directory, ie. FOLDERID_ProgramData, accessible by all users with whatever integrity level they are running ?

If the common data directory is the solution, can I create a directory beneath the common data directory and write a file to that directory from my separate application running with any integrity level, or does the application need to have administrative rights in order to do so as it is currently designed ?

Thanks !

A:Keep Getting Ise32 Properties Window On Startup

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.IMPORTANT NOTE: ise32.exe is related to the family of worms and IRC backdoor Trojans.

Hey! I've just rebuilt my computer and reinstalled XP: it's gone back to the default of logging me out after 20 minutes of inactivity, and I want to change that so it doesn't log me out at all!

However, the properties window (the one you reach by right clicking on the desktop) is different to how it should be- when I first installed XP it was the normal window with the tabs for themes, desktop, screensaver, appearance and settings. However, for some reason recently all it's doing is show the tabs for themes, appearance and settings, so I can't reach the power settings that should be under the screensaver tab!

I've tried accessing power settings via the control panel, but I can't seem to find anything to turn it off or change it- any help on this one? (And any help on getting my display properties window back to how it should be, showing all the tabs?)

Thanks!

Since I am new to the forum, I'm not sure where my problem should be posted. I am also not sure if it is a hardware or software related problem, but here it is.

Suddenly, when I try to print, the print properties dialog window does not appear when i click on the properties button. It tries to activate, but immediately reverts back to the print window. This occurs in both OpenOffice 4.1.1 and LibreOffice 4.3, both of which have previously worked fine for months. I often print to both sides of the page (echo print), but can only print on one side (default) since I cannot change the properties. The only thing I can recall that might have any bearing on the problem is that I had previously printed to a file - something I rarely do. I checked the settings and "print to file" is not selected. I am printing to a HP LaserJet Pro M1530 MFP series PCL6 printer and am using Windows 8.1 operating system. I have tried reinstalling both word processing programs and have reset the printer to default settings and updated.

If anyone can help with this problem, I would greatly appreciate your help.

A:Print properties dialog window does not appear

Printers can be very frustrating to say the least. When I've had printer problems in the past, this is what has worked for me:

1. Unplug the power to the printer
2. Wait about 30 seconds or so
3. Plug it in and let it go through it's initialization
4. Then try it again

If that doesn't work, try reloading the printer driver from the HP site. If it still doesn't work, try a system restore back to the last time the printer was working successfully. That's about all the tricks I know for printers. Hope it helps ...

When I insert a CD in either of my two drives the window that jumps up giving me the options of what program to use (CD Properties ) is maximized and takes up the whole screen. This just started happening. If I double click on the top blue titlebarlbar it goes back to it's smaller (normal) size. I tried holding down the ctrl. key and closing the window but the next time the computer boots it does the same thing. It is not possible to drag this type of window in any way. The only option for this type of window in the upper right corner is an X to close it. It may need a registry edit but I don't know how. To access a similar type window open "my computer, right click on any drive, the window that opens is the same type. Any help would be appreciated.

I am running WinXP, SP2. I have a Fellows Internet Touchpad installed. When I go to the Control Panel and select the Mouse, the standard Microsoft Mouse window opens instead of the Cirque Touchpad window. The mouse is identified correctly as a Cirque Ps2 Touchpad and the driver is correctly specified. The special functions of the touchpad are all working ok, however without being able to open up the correct properties window, I cannot make any changes. It used to work properly. I have tried uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling the touchpad driver. That does not fix it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

I have a large number of files which I am changing the naming convention for in the Title detail and am getting frustrated having to right click for properties and anvigate tabs ebfore being able to change each one. I can see the Title of the files in the Details view of the folder they are in, but there cannot find a way to edit them in that view other than the manner previosuly stated.

That being said, does anyone know of a workaround that would allow me to change each title without aving to jump through hoops to edit them?

Thanks in advance.

A:Wish to edit detail properties of files in window

Welcome to the Forums Clockwork,

So if I get it correctly you want to rename multiple files at once?
If so, go to the folder they are located in, click anywhere in the folder, hit crtl and a at the same time to select all the files and then hit F2

After that you'll see that the name banner of the first file in the folder turned empty. You can now type the name you want it to have in, and hit enter. It will change all the files to that name, followed up by a number.
Hope that that helps!

A:Window Sys32 Properties Appears On Opening

The System32 folder opens at startup because of a corrupt system registry value. The value could have been corrupted for a number of reasons to include malware or installing/uninstalling a program from the Internet which did not install/uninstall itself properly.Click on the link below:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #260 and click "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" in the right column. You will be prompted to download xp_systems32opens.vbs. Save the file to your desktop and double-click on it to run the script. Since the script modifies certain registry settings you may receive an alert from your anti-virus or any script blocking program. Ignore the warning and allow it to continue.The problem could also be caused by empty run entries in your startup shortcuts which will open the system32 folder. Check the startup run registry entries and remove those entries. See System32 Folder Opens When Logging on to Windows.These steps involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Hi guys.

I posted this on the 'Software and Hardware' forum, but got told to try here.

This evening I went onto my Windows Vista laptop just to browse the internet when I noticed this message pop up straight after I had booted up:


I saw that it had been deleted and I have no idea why. Now, I'm not an expert at computers but I knew this wasn't good, so I clicked 'restore' and I never saw it again. However I restarted and noticed it again, but I didn't click 'restore' this time, and as I went to download a file it wouldn't download (something along the lines of: .exe couldn't be downloaded... please contact administrator)

I don't think it can be serious because as soon as I 'restore' it everything's back to normal, but it is really annoying that after every statup this pops up. Please can you help me rectify this and allow me to have a stressless time whilst browing on my laptop.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have two questions that are not critical to the operation of my system but has been driving me crazy in an effort to research them to no avail. The only thing that I am pretty sure of is that it is a problem with the registry.

When I right click on a folder and then click properties, the dialog window comes up with 3 extra tabs. This happens for every folder on my computer. The extra tabs are the same tabs as the My Documents folder shortcut (Target, General, and Sharing) and the target window is C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents. This results in every folder having an extra General and Sharing tab and a Target tab with the My Documents target in it. Interestingly enough, the virtual folder that is listed in explorer for My Documents has only 3 tabs but the My Documents folder inside Documents and Settings\Owner (the actual folder itself) has the extra tabs just like every other folder.

A possibly connected problem is that the Add/Remove section of the Control Panel no longer has the install dates or useage level for most programs. The dates are in the HKLM uninstall registry keys but they are not being read for some reason.

I have been installing and uninstalling a lot of programs (mostly antivirus, antispyware, firewall, and utility programs) in an effort to clean up and speed up my computer and test a lot of different applications. This effort has been dramatically successful however I am left with these two minor but annoying is... Read more

I've used Calendar Creator 10 Deluxe for a couple of years without problems, but all of a sudden it crashes when I try to access the Properties window. This happens using both right click and the menu. The Properties window displays incompletely, and then the dialog box pops up that says "Calendar Creator has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I thought the calendar file was corrupt, so I created a new calendar. Same problem. I did a repair install. Same problem. I uninstalled, ran my reg cleaner (Advanced System Optimizer) and reinstalled. It still crashes when the Properties window comes up.

In light of that history, I suspect that the culprit may be Windows even though it only affects CC. I ran ShellEx View and could not see any handlers that came specifically from Broderbund or anything that is specifically for the .bcc file extension.

Any ideas on what could be causing this problem would be greatly appreciated.
