Icons in the wrong place?

Q: Icons in the wrong place?

Hi, has anyone ever experienced this, in Win XP?

I'll try to explain the best I can... my father (on his computer), was playing around with his taskbar putting it on the sides to see if he'd like there, I guess...

Now he's got repeats of his icons from the desktop sitting on his taskbar, fullsize. We tried to delete them, but if we did, they would also delete the twin that's on the desktop. I found this too be so weird, his taskbar is now about an inch and a quarter high, and we could not reduce it.

Has anyone ever seen such a glitch?

I don't think a restore would do anything, it being icons...

Preferred Solution: Icons in the wrong place?

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.)

This is a weird problem I've notice in two computers I have, both with Vista. I assigned custom icons to various folders (like on my pictures I have an .ico file picture of a camera and on my documents I have an .ico picture of garfield, etc....) On both computers (one a desktop and the other a laptop) after about 1 month, the folders .ico went back to default, they both went back to the plain manilla folder .ico picture. I can manually put the custom icons back but its kind of a hassle. I don't have any idea why both computers have done this? Must be something I can do to stop it?? Any ideas

Hi all
(I'm italian, excuse me for my bad english).
I have a pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have a problem with some icons on taskbar: sometimes some applications are displaying the wrong icons, sometimes, as you can see (screenshot), I don't see some icons: sometimes a few are missing (this time I have 8 icons of about 20!).

If I restart my pc, some icons return, but many still missing or are wrong!


So I launched this tool from microsof (I think it rebuilt icon cache, but I'm not sure): In Windows le icone vengono modificate in modo non corretto
but it doesnt' fix the problem, see this screenshot after using this tool from microsoft:

now as you can see some applications are displaying the wrong icons and 2 icons are still missing ...is there any fix for this problem? thanks!!

Vittorio.

i guess i'm newer than i thought i was......a friend gave me a new monitor that is larger than my old one....so i have a lot of black screen ......wish i could fix this...if someone could help or redirect me, i would appreciate it....thank you
 

A:may be in the wrong place

The monitor you have now, as the old monitor you had, should have some buttons or knobs on the front of it. These are used to resize the image, adjust it's position etc. Try them out looking for the obvious such as a knob with an image that looks like it will stretch it etc. Also, you might want to adjust your settings to a different resolution. For example: 800X600, 1024X768 etc. To do that, just right click on an empty space on your desktop, select PROPERTIES, then left click on SETTINGS, then move the slider under SCREEN AREA. Hope this helps, T.

Since you have an older system you would need to upgrade nearly everything if you are looking to get a more modern system. Selling you exisitng system and buying/building a new one would be the smart move.

A friend has just created a new subdomain of his existing site. If I go to http://www.newsubdomain.existingsite.com, I see the host's generic "new site will be available soon" message. BUT if I go to http://newsubdomain.existingsite.com (that is, the same address, but without the leading "www."), I wind up on the site for some perfectly innocent-looking automotive specialty parts distribution company. (It looks like they mostly sell to retailers, not the public, so it makes no sense at all for them to be complicit in this apparent hijacking, although someone could have put something malicious on their site, I guess.)My computer is a laptop running WinXP Pro. AVG, spybot and Ad-aware scans find nothing amiss. The machine has no other symptoms of any kind of infection, afaict.The problem shows up regardless of whether I use Firefox or IE, but another machine on my home-network does NOT have this problem, so I know it's not a case of my ISP's DNS cache having been poisoned. I did run ipconfig /flushdns from a command prompt; that didn't fix it.Could this just be some simple corrupted record somewhere, or must we conclude a malware infection?TIA!!!

I got broadband last week and we're only allowed 2GB monthly usage limit (hehe, well it is cheap). I was wondering if streaming videos counts towards this, like does it take up disk space? And is there any chance of viruses? Thanks, pretty random, but I'd like to know.

A:ok this is probably the wrong place, but...youtube

Hi...

Yes that will count towards your 2GB monthly allowance...everything you get from the internet will count (emails, webpages, videos, music etc).

It does take up disk space but once you clear your temporary internet files, that will solve the problem.

As with the risks of internet use, there is a chance of picking up spyware/viruses by downloading content....but the chances are far less with reputable sites.

Hope that helps :)

if the mods would kindly move this post into the correct forum, as i'm unable to post there myself!!

up until today my pc has been working fine, but i have had a few virii detected by AVG that it said it had healed. now i cant browse any web pages to do with virii or anything remotely linked to it as my web browser closes down totally, this is if i use IE, firefox or opera, for instance i cant open the hijack this log forum as my window just shuts down!!

if i try open AVG it gets as far as the grisoft opening page then shuts down before i can do anything, same with system restore, if i click that it tells me it has been switched off through group policy and to contact administrator, for which i have administrator rights on this pc.

i can open every window from control panel, except administrative tools, if i try it just shuts the window down totally, this even happens if i boot up into safe mode, nothing that i know of will help, but then i'm not a pc whizz-kid!!

please help me, i have posted a hijack this log, hopefully someone can stop me throwing my pc out the window in frustration!!

I have WINDOWS XP, and can't figure out what other topic this question might belong in...

I don't know when or how it happened, but two file folders MY SHARED DOCUMENTS and CARRIE'S DOCUMENTS are now in MY COMPUTER.

MY COMPUTER, where it shows the drives. I am pretty sure it never had yellow folders in it before.

I think they should be in C DRIVE? There is a MY DOCUMENTS in C Drive, but it has nothing in it. I'm the only one who uses this computer, but apparenty everything saved goes into CARRIE'S DOCUMENTS. SHARED DOCUMENTS has various folders in it that I suppose would be shared by all, if others used the computer, too.

I've tried dragging them there (or anywhere) but only shortcuts appear in the new area. The folders still say in MY COMPUTER. They won't copy and paste.

When I open something, like in WORD, etc. I can still find them, just they are under MY COMPUTER.

So, they still work, it just seems strange, like they shouldn't be in MY COMPUTER. Unless I have totally missed this for the past year, I don't remember ever seeing them in there before. I take pictures off my memory card with a removable drive, which shows up as F drive, so I look in MY COMPUTER to click on this, all the time.

What happened and how can I fix it? Actually, since it seems to work this way, the only reason to fix it seems to be it looks odd this way.

Could anyone tell me the best utility for fixing the registry/broken links/shortcuts etc in XP Home. My computer has become quite slow and I think I may have a lot of rubbish cluttering up the system.I do tend to trial a lot of progs and then uninstall them.

A:This question may be in the wrong place

Personally I would not 'fix' anything in the Registry. Yes there may be a few broken links but they will be taking up minimal space and will probably not cause your system to slow down that you would notice.. Better to defrag your hard disc and run something like Cleanup! to clear out your temp files etc.

Or when the washing machine switches from wash to spin. (The fan only does it switching from "hi" to "medium," not from med to slow.

I'm trying to use robocopy for mirroring my most important files between two computers. Except for one issue, it works as expected.

I'm trying to copy the complete "Documents" directory. Previously, this was called "My documents" and contained for example "My pictures". Now it doesn't, and I like that, but robocopy don't. Somehow it still searches for these directories, and of course can't find them. Seems robocopy needs a fix, or am I missing out on something here?

A:Robocopy looking for my directories in the wrong place

For some time now I have had no sound. I think I might have plugged the sound connector into the wrong hole. On the back of my Dell Dimension #2350 PC are 3 holes (one pink, one light blue and one real dark blue). I currently have it plugged into the pink hole & was wondering if I should try one of the other two.

Have I got it connected in the right hole now or would I hurt anything by moving it to one of the other two holes?

I am a beginner and would really appreciate any suggestions and/or help as I really miss the sound, especially on e-mail cards I receive.

A:Have I Got Sound Connected In Wrong Place?

It would not hurt the computer or your speakers to plug it into the other holes.

Make sure your speakers are plugged into the wall (if they are that type of speaker), make sure they are turned on! And turned up! Put in some music, play it, and then plug the speakers into the different ports and see if they work.

If they still don't, let us know and one of us can walk you through it!

Hi!

I recently bought all the parts to build my very own gaming pc, which one of them is the Antec Kühler h2o k240.

I build it myself and I got to the BIOS but now i see when i start my pc only 1 of my cooler fans doesn?t rotate.

I got my fans connected to cpu_fan and AIO_pump. But I don?t think the last one is correct. Should I put the AIO_pump to cpu_OPT or am i missing the point somewhere?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Cooler 4 pins at the wrong place?

I looked at the manual and it is just about useless. With dual fans, there should be a spliter for the fan pw and that goes on the cpu fan header. Both fans pw from the single header. From the manual, it shows the pump being connected to a sata type pw connector. This is pretty strange; all of the AIO type coolers I have seen have pump pw going to a AIO header on the motherboard. It is hard for me to understand how pump RPM is going to be monitored by using a sata pw connector......
Again the manual is useless.

FWIW I recommend coolermaster water cooling IF you really want water cooling.

Yesterday on my W10 PC, when I click the FILE EXPLORER button in my task bar I got random results. Same today. Sometimes it would start normally and show me all the computer, folders, etc.
Other times it would show me this - see below. Then take 5 mins to open.
Also in a directory full of photos it would show thumbnails of the first 50% and the rest would be missing.
Never seen this before. Any suggestions?

Hi there,
sorry if I've come to the wrong forum but I seem to have some redirect spyware on my laptop that keeps sending me to sites I really don't want to be going too!
Would it be possible for me to post the log file from HiJackThis here and perhaps someone with more of a clue about these things could tell me which items I need to 'fix'??

This may sound trivial, but it is annoying. I have a new Lenovo T400 laptop. When I have a search results page up such as a Google search page or Craigs List and I select a listing say in the middle of the page or so, click it, view the selection and the hit the "back arrow" it will return me to the begining of the page, not to the originally selected item. My last two laptops and my desktop return me to the original selection wherever it was on the page. Is there a search setting I'm missing somewhere or what. My new laptop version is XP PRO, Windows 8. My last two laptops where Vista Home Windows 7 and my desktop is XP and Windows 7.
Any help would be appreciated.

I'm putting this here as my OS is Vista and most of my pc related problems seem to be with vistas compatiblity, so.

I'm trying to extract a file with winrar, and every single time I try, I get the same error message
! C:\Users\Public\Grand Theft Auto 4 - Vice City [v1.1 PC-Multilang NoCD].rar: Cannot set Grand Theft Auto 4 - Vice City\readMe.txt security data
! This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

I'll keep the details involving folders etc in, even though I don't think they're relevant as I've tried saving in several locations.

After reading online, I get told it's to do with user permissions, and creating new objects.
As I'm the admin of the PC, I'd assume I'd be able to save it anywhere, no?
Anyway, I tried moving the .rar into the same location as the Destination for the files, tried moving it into the folder for the user of my pc and extracting it there, and both of those ideas of mine didn't work, so I decided to ask help here.

any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated as this is the only way I can acquire the thing I've downloaded atm

I just reformated my PC and after I installed everything, I played some music and it comes out of the speakers built-in to the screen and not my speakers.
