Preferred Solution: usb stick renamed by MS 'Fix-It' - can not change name back

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,

Odd problem cropped up about a week ago. My boyfriend pointed out that the recycle bin has been renamed to "games (1)". I can't just rename it back either so I've no idea how to fix this. I did try going to the customize desktop feature from display>properties and selecting the restore default option but nothing happens so I'm not sure what else to try.

thanks,
Zelda ;)

So the problem is had a virus called the system check virus and started going through the manual process of getting rid of it. One part of it is making hidden folders, etc accessible and then renaming the virus files so it doesnt recognise them and they stop running. While in there i accidentally changed two of the folders names which had alot of characters so i mistook it for one of the virus files.
I've since learned these are windows folders and needed. was hoping someone could post a screenshot or something showing what these folders are meant to be called so i can change them back.
I know it was a stupid move but any help would be appreiciated... Thanks (hopefully this makes sense)

A:Renamed folders in application data, need to change them back

You must tell us the names of a few files inside or send screen shots of the open folders to see what files are there.

Only after that one would be able to know the names of the Folders in which these files are located in another computer.

My Dad's 20 GB USB 2 external HD was mysteriously renamed from Chinese to English and the new name is Lost Plannet 2 which looks like a game. He manually renamed it back, but it reverted back after rebooting.

Any idea how this could hav ehappened and how can we change it back permanently?

Thanks.
 

A:external HD got renamed and cannot be renamed back

It's just a thought, but try viewing hidden & system files to see if there's anything fishy about the drive. Don't panic when you see stuff that you didn't know was there, but if you do see any system files on the root of the drive let us know what they are. Especially if you happen to find a file called "autorun".

On fairly new computer with a backup disc - I plugged in my card reader before the back-up one time and then plugged in back-up disc and my computer had now renamed my back-up disc to Local disc H - it was Local Disc G. The Card reader now has been assigned the name Local Disc G. Tried to shut down unplug everything and restart - not using card reader and turning on only back-up disc. This is a problem because all of my files for websites are in back-up disc so all of the pathways are wrong. Is there anyway to get my back-up disc back to Local Disc G? Thanks to anyone who knows what I can do to correct this.
 

A:Local (back-up) Disc renamed by default

You can use Disk Management to re-assign the drive letters. You'll need to first re-assign H to something else and then assign the other drive to H, then do the other drive to G.

Hello

Today I wanted to change some explorer and windows icons. But i didnt have access to change the imageres.dll file even after taking ownership of it. So i copied it to the desktop and changed some icons but i couldn't replace the new .dll with the old one neither.
So then i made the decision to rename the .dll to imageresold.dll and after that dragging in the new one(i have done that to explorerframe.dll earlier witout problem).
I could rename it but i still couldn't drag in the new one.

After that i couldn't rename it back to imageres.dll but there was an imageres.dll.backup there so i restarted the computer in hope that the backup would be used or something, if that wouldn't work i would just use sfc /scannow to fix all the system files.

But when I reached the login screen after starting the computer there was no user to log into, just the login wallpaper and the bottons in the corners to shut down /restart etc.

I booted up the installation cd to try to repair it from there but my mouse or keyboard doesn't work in the installation screen(i tried usb 3.0, 2.0 and ps/2 ports).

Is there any way i can log into the computer any other way or open cmd without logging in?

Thanks in advance

If you are not intending to add RAM, I would stick with 32 bit if you are asking about Windows.

Hello, hope I have put this on the right board. First time on here and I am reading thru the books Windows 8 in easy steps and easy windows 8 as a guide. I want to back up Windows 8 but in neither book do they say that you can use a USB stick or CDs only an external hard drive or a network. I've got an external hard drive that backs up my desktop (XP) can I use this as well for Windows 8 or should I just get another external hard drive solely for Windows 8 or can I use the USB Stick 32gb that I already have?

A:Can I back up data with a USB stick 32gb?

Speaking of built-in tools:
File history - yes
Legacy backup - no

Note that you can't use both, as they are mutually exclusive by design.

32GB may not be enough for file history, if you have a lot of files and update them often, because files aren't compressed. I'd say an external hard drive is a better option.

I'm looking to take my Satellite S50 back to factory settings and am wondering if I could back up the Windows 8.1 onto a new 16gb USB stick as a bootable drive?

Thanks in advance

A:Satellite S50 - Bootable USB Memory Stick for OS back-up

Original recovery image is saved on the HDD and you can create bootable recovery media and using this bootable USB you can install original Windows version that you got with your notebook.
Using preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator you can do this.
I have S50-B and I have created USB recovery media. I have used 16GB USB.

How all this works you can read in user’s manuals document.

I used a 32gb USB 3.0 stick to copy a single setup file from my laptop for a Cisco router and it turned out to turn the stick into a "Easy Setup Key," and rename the stick's volume label accordingly. I didn't need that, since I have another stick dedicated to that purpose. I'd like to change the volume label, but can't get the new one to hold. I tried the direct rename method, then both quick and slow re-formats of the stick (NTFS), but the new name doesn't hold. Right after the format, the new name does show, and it always shows on the Format dialogue box, but when I unplug and replug the stick into my desktop (3.0 port), my file manager shows it with the former "Easy Setup Key" label. How can I get this done? Thanks,

A:Can't change Volume Label on USB stick

Download the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3 from Download HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3 Free - Windows-based Format Utility for HP Drive Key or DiskOnKey USB Device - Softpedia

It is a single 96KB HPUSBDisk.exe file. Plugin your pendrive, right click on the .exe file and run it as administrator. Give a new volume label and do a quick format. When finished, close the application, safely remove the pendrive plug it in again and check whether the new volume label sticks. ( If not we will try a more rigorous procedure.)

Hi,

I have two XP Pro (1 SP1 & 1 SP2) boxes with 512Mb of memory. The swapfile for each on disk is 785Mb. I want to increase the size of the swapfile. I go through the process via My Computer, etc. It seems to accept the new numbers, but the size doesn't change on disk. I even try to reboot afterwards, still no joy. I even went to the extent of telling it not to have a swapfile, reboot, then put the size in that I want. It does get built to that size, however, after the next reboot, the size is back at the 785Mb.

So, why does it revert back to 785Mb? And why can't I increase the size?

Thanks in advance for any sage wisdom that might point me in the right direction.

I have a problem loading OpenGL for my Graphics card:

I used to have an onboard Asus card on my HP Pavillion computer, which I later replaced with an NVIDIA 8600 GT card.

This is a long time ago. Only recently I found that OpenGL does not work correctly.

I have now installed the latest drivers of NVIDA 7.15.11.7824 (downloaded from their site). Once I run the driver updat this solves the problem until I do a reboot and then it reverts back to an old version of OpenGL.

I cannot deinstall the old Asus driver via the Config Manager as I cannot see it listed anywhere,
So after some research online I found that the old Asus OpenGL dll is called atkogl32.dll. I deleted it from the C:\Windows\System32 directory.

Then I found there is aldo a registry key for it: OpenGLDriverName which contained value atkogl32. So I changed this into the new NVIDIA dll, which I found out is: nvoglv32

When I reboot my system it correctly loads the nvogl32 dll and the OpenGL is functioning correctly.
However when I open the registry editor it has reverted the OpenGLDriver to the old value of atkogl32 again! So when I reboot once more, my OpenGL is reverted to the old OpenGL and does not work.

So my change to the OpenGLDriverName entry in the register will not stick. Something must keep changing it at boot.

Do not reboot your PC after you change any ZA setting because it will always use the backup of your setting on a reboot or bad shut down.
So after making changes shut down your PC and then when you start the PC again your new setting will be there.
Then you can with the Pro version make a backup of your setting.

I want to run all my opinions before I might send it back. If my e6430 didn't come with a backlit keyboard nor meant to have one, could it be that the new backlit keyboard is being lit by (hijacking) the power circuit intended for the pointer stick? Is there a way I can check the BIOS and have it find and activate the stick? Could I download any older pointer stick drivers and see if that does the trick?

I'm not familiar with this type of router but it seams like you need to do a factory reset. Then return you router to your normal settings afterwards.
You can probably do this by getting a pin and poking it in the hole on the back of your router near the 'Reset to Factory Settings' text (or something to that extent).

If not, then you might see if you may be able to create a new administrator account to use instead, and copy what you want from the old account.

I have an hp touchsmart tx2 laptop with an ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics card. I recently reformatted and reinstalled vista. Since the reformat, however, the resolution has not been the same. I'm not entirely positive that my resolution was 1280x960, but I think it was. I am absolutely sure that it was a 4x3 ratio, and anything less than 1280 seems horribly fuzzy and large. But the highest resolution I can reach now is 1280x800. I've tried getting the most recent drivers from ATI and every windows update. Nothing seems to help. I've also noticed that if I go into the options in ATI's Catalyst Control Center, changing the scaling options from "full screen" to "preserve aspect ratio" doesn't do anything. The screen flickers for a few seconds, but doesn't change at all. Does anybody know of a way to get my resolution back to 1280x960? Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.

HP computer running Vista Home Premium up to date with a HP w1858 LCD monitor.

Same deal now on control panel when I go to the DPI scaling to set the DPI back to normal or even set the custom DPI back to say 90 I can make the change on the screen but cannot get the screen to scroll down so I can click on apply icon to make the change on next boot.

I recently got a new laptop with Office 2013 and Outlook 2013 was set up with IMAP(is that the default?).  I think this is my issue.  My issue is that emails are being deleted at random from my trash folder. I think it might have been because, unbeknownst to me until this issue with Outlook 2013, message deletion was set up for possibly one day (I've since changed that to the max of 30 days) via my ISP (Comcast) on the web.  Sometimes I need to go back to a deleted email and that's why I like to delete them individually at a later time.
 
Here is my original thread in case it's needed:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/588318/help-with-outlook-2013-and-trash-folder-deleting-emails-on-its-own/
 
I replied to a similar thread hoping someone would see that but so far, no reply. I realize it's only been a day but my original thread has been out there a little longer......it's the questions within this thread that I'm now wondering about:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/588946/how-to-roll-back-from-imap-to-pop3/
 
Thank you, thank you for any help.  I need a bit more of an education of IMAP vs. POP obviously.....I guess this is one way to get it.

Hi,

I had an eps file which I wanted to view (I don't have the supporting program for this type of file) so I right clicked and opened with Adobe Acrobat and now all my eps files have changed to Adobe Acrobat (pdf's) files! - the default programme for opening these files has changed, I cant seem to change this/open with as I don't have the supported programme to select in the first place.

How do I change them back? and stop this happening to further eps files I hold? I can see on my outlook emails coming through that the eps files are showing as pdf's.

Any help would be much appreciated, I cant seem to find a way around this.

Thanks

A:Change PDF back to an eps file

Just use Gimp to open them. Go into Default programs and re-associate the files to Adobe Illustrator. You can also use Adobe's Creative Cloud for those files.

Is there a way to change the default location to send data when doing a back-up? When I try to do a back-up on XP the default location is the floppy drive. Can I change it so I can burn a cd instead?

A:Change back up from floppy to cd

Welcome to TSF!

Depends on what backup program you are using. Windows backup can't burn to CD. If you use the Wizard, the location will always default to the Floppy drive if you have one. The list is alphabetical.

If you set it to use the Advanced mode, the location should be the last one used.

Anyone know of a netbook (small laptop) that has a pointing stick / trackpoint like IBM has on most of their regular sized notebooks?

I love the trackpoints to the point that i wont buy a notebook without one.
The touchpad only option is so 1990's

Id love to get a ASUS eee, but there's no way ill by one, or a similar netbook that dont have a trackpoint.

Other names the keyboard mouse trackpoint goes by for tagging / searching purposes:

TrackPoint
PointStick
NX Point
Pointing
StickPoint
QuickPoint
Track Stick
AccuPoint
FineTrack
Mouse emulator
Pointing Stick

Thanks for looking.
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello People

I've searched for hours now with google but I didn't find anything useful about either how a Trackpoint works or how one of these can be repaired.

I'm doing this because I want to get my old Compaq LTE5300 working neatly again. It's not as useful as a laptop rightnow because of a broken trackpoint and a broken battery. I've already found a tutorial how to get NiCd and NiMh Batteries working again. Going to try that tomorrow.
Well, there's another possibility for getting a TrackPoint to that old Compaq:
I've got a broken Toshiba with Trackpoint as well (Motherboard or Screen or both gone). That Trackpoint works well with the Compaq. Only problem is that I can't use the connectors to put that Trackpoint anywhere outside the case. Question: How do I prolong foil wrapped cables?

Maybe I'm writing a bit confused, but that's only because it's late here in CH.

Greetings Hans

A:How do I change icon back to original?

Hello Himmcr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you made this change to undo it and hopefully restore the icons back to default.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
