Preferred Solution: inserting data attribute into file 118951

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.)


Due to some virus my some files got hidden with System Files properties.
After I select option "Show Hidden Files and Folders" my files are shown only if I uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files" in Folder Option.

So how can I change properties of My Files to cancel Hidden option???

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post on this site. I am also working on my first macro and it is turning out to be quite complicated but the mere idea of it working is enough to keep me at it.

In short, I want to use an excel macro to read a text file for a specific line of text, and then write data to the text file on the line before. In other words, rather than the data being added to the end of the file it's added to a particular section of the file after the existing data of that section.

Is this possible? Does anyone have example code for this? I have searched online and tried another forum and no luck so far. I appreciate any tips or sample code, thankyou!!

In Windows 7 (and Vista) - all files displayed show only the file name.
This is particularly noticeable with audio and image files - but I often have identical file names in different formats or sizes.
Is there a way to make the .wav or .mp3 etc suffix visible and more importantly - can I edit it and sort by type?

(At the moment I am reverting to an old laptop running XP where I can edit and sort things easily).

Many thanks,

A:File Manager - file attribute display and changing

Hi catstevecam and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes you can display the file extension. In explorer select Organize->Folder and search options. On the view tab uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.
If you right click on an empty area in a folder you can chose sort and grouping options. Type is one of these.

You can change the attributes of some file types (Music & Videos) in the properties details tab.

Hello to all and Happy New Year,

I have very strange problem, I have found virus on my USB stick which my Mcafee antivirus succesfully cleaned. However, there were a few files infected, which after they'd been cleaned, became hidden. I'm unbale to change that attribute in file's properties since it is gray. I don't know what to do. I have checked and I as an administartor of machine have rights to read and write atributes.
Is there any other way to change this "hidden" attribute?
I'm using Win XP professional.

A:Unable to change file's attribute

I managed to fix this. I found that antivirus somehow set attribute to these files as system files. I noticed that when I tried to remove hidden attribute by attrib command manually in cmd prompt.
So, command
attrib -s -h file_name.doc solve problem.
Only problem is I needed to repeat command 10 times, one for each file. I wonder if only I could do it for all automatically...

My father is having issues when inserting a DVD or CD into either of his Samsung DV Rom SD-616E drive or his Philips DVD+-RW DVD8631 drive. Both cause a BSOD with a stop error code of BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x8888E618, 0x8888E630, 0x1A030001) a few seconds after a valid data CD or DVD is inserted (confirmed valid on a second computer). Video DVDs do not appear to have any issues.

The event viewer does not offer any salient error logs for subsequent attempts at inserting a data DVD but the initial occurrence gave roughly 15 logs of:Error code: 7
The device, \Device\CdRom1, has a bad block.
He is using Windows XP Pro w/SP3, 512Mb RAM with Norton Security Suite v4.3.0.5 as Firewall and Anti-Virus protection with the latest anti-virus definitions.

Additional potential clues include a recent update to Adobe Flash Player and within the past 2 weeks at least he says after boot up that programs take a considerable amount of time to launch (up to a minute for Outlook Express to even open as well as Internet Explorer).

I highly doubt that it is a hardware issue since it occurs on both of his drives. Likewise for cleaning the actual ROM drives or the DVD disks. Any ideas on where to go from here with troubleshooting?

My families vista system got infected with malware(Antimalware doctor) and (as the computer had already been restarted twice by this point anyway) I elected to attempt to remove the offending files from safe mode. I deleted the registry keys first with relative success but had more trouble hunting down the offending files. In the end I found the filepath in a shortcut but found that the folders in question were hidden. After making the hidden files visible folder by folder for I while I decided to accelerate the process and told it to make all hidden files visible. As this was the case with my own computer, I didn't anticipate any problems but after a 3 min long "attribute change" suddenly all the files in the relevant users account had disappeared, rather than being joined by a few previously hidden folders.(In fact, aside from a previously open window, the account as a whole had disappeared). According to the windows accounts page, the account in question is still there and using a sizable chunk of hard disk space, but I can find no other evidence of it or the files.

My only two theories right now are :
1. Somehow I accidentally made all of the contents of the account be listed as hidden files - I consider this one very unlikely, as one vista dialogue(which I have used many times before) would probably not be capable of that effect.

2. Some self-defense action of the malware. The malware has already prevented use of the internet or the running of any progra... Read more

Several months ago I got a new laptop with Win 7 Pro SP1 64bit. I have done numerous backups on this machine but I've noticed that the file attribute 'archive bit' (a) is not being reset as it was on Win XP. (NOTE: backups were full backups not incremental or differential.)

Does Win 7 treat file attribute bits differently than XP?

I also have noticed that 7 displays various attribute bits that were not used in XP; where is there a description of all attribute bits?

A:File Attribute 'Archive' Bits not being reset

Are you on a homegroup by any chance?

I've read some MS answers that flat out say that the archive bit is no longer available in windows 7 (but I think they mean reliably usable rather than not available in the strict sense). To others saying that the homegroup networking is using it for it's own purposes (probably for it's own built in backup) and it interferes with other people/programs using it.

Personally I have not looked into it though.

I believe that the base "dos" attributes are the same as always though: Read Only, Archive, Hidden and System. Of course NTFS itself has (and has always had) a much more extensive access control system in place for all folders and files...

Is it possible to check the archive attribute on a file with DOS?
I have a series of directories that need to have their files deleted once the archive attribute has been removed i.e. in Windows Explorer under the Attribute column the 'A' has disappeared.

How would one go about checking. I can gather a list of the file names in the directory. I assume that it would be the command

If not exist [archive attribute] (
delete file)
However I may be barking up the wrong tree.
Has anyone any experience with this?

This isn't a problem but a nuisance. In Windows XP Home, whenever I insert a data CD or ZIP disk, Windows Explorer opens a new window that shows the contents of the CD or ZIP disk. I find this very aggravating and would like to find out how to prevent Windows from doing this. I've tried right clicking on the drive's letter in My Computer and then trying to tell it to "take no action" but that hasn't worked. I've also gone to Folder Options in Control Panel and tried various options. Nothing works however. The reason I don't appreciate having a new window opened is that I use Power Desk, which I like, instead of Windows Explorer, which I hate. Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried using command prompt to disable it as well as playing with the security settings and account permissions.

A:File and Folder Read only attribute wont disable

1. First question, why are you trying to do it?

2. look here:
Unable to remove Read-Only attribute from folder
You cannot view or change the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003, in Windows XP, in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

To view or to remove the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Vista or Windows 7
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER..
To view the syntax for the Attrib command, type attrib /? at the command prompt.
To remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute, use the following command:
attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>
For example, to remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute for the C:\Test folder, use the following command:
attrib -r +s c:\test
Be aware that some programs may not operate correctly with folders for which the System attribute and the Read-only attribute are set. Therefore, use the following command to remove these attributes:
attrib -r -s drive:\<path>\<foldername>
For example, to remove both the Read-only and the System attributes from the C:\Test folder, use the following command:
attrib -r -s c:\test
If the Run command is not listed on the Start menu, do the following:
Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run..

Hello -

I have a data table that is recording inspection dates and inspection purposes for specific records. There are a total of six occurences (i.e. Inspetion Purpose (1), Inspection Date (1), Inspection Purpose (2), Inspection Date (2)).I would like to use a form to input data into the fields. Is it possible to build an expression so that the data input into the form inserts the data into the table with the first available null value for that record.

In other words, if there is a value present in Inspection Purpose (1) & Inspection Date (1) then the data from the form is inserted into the fields for Inspection Purpose (2) & Inspection Date (2).

I would greatly appreciate any help!

I'm trying to insert a timestamp as part of a file name and I realized that there is something basic about a timestamp that I do not understand:

Assume the output for echo %time% is 16:13:07.91.

Why is echo %time:~3,2% equal to 13? Does the colon not count as a character? In %date% the slash (/) does count as a character.

A:Inserting a Timestamp into a File Name

Aha - got this one solved.

The 'trick' is that the first character on the left is in the zero-ith position, not the first position. If echo %time% is 16:13:07.91, the '1' in 16 is in the zero-ith position and the 6 is in the first position.

To see this, try echo %time:~0,1% and you'll find that the result is the first character in the current time.

Going back to my original question about the time 16:13:07.91: 1 is in the zero-ith position, 6 is in the first position, the colon [:] is in the second position and 1 is in the third position. That's why echo %time:~3,2% is equal to 13.

Think digital! In the digital world, 0 isn't 'nothing,' it's a unique number.

Now I understand why some people prefer to indicate the time and date in a batch file by counting backwards from the right instead of forwards from the left. No pesky '0' to confuse you.

This behavoir really bugs me. When I go to compose a message in Outlook 2003, and i want to insert a picture from a file by using the command on the menu bar under "insert", it inserts the picture but when i go to type anything and I use the scrollbar to scroll up or down the picture disappears - all, or sometimes part of it. I can send the email, and when i look at it in the "sent" folder the picture is all there. But it is very annoying when i am typing a message.

These are messages in which formatting is html and Word 2003 is the editor as designated in the "options" box. This does not seem to happen if I un-check Word as the editor and compose in standard Outlook form - then, i can insert a picture and its fine. So I think it has something to do with how Word 2003 handles pictures???

If I go to a place where I think there are supposed to be system files that are supposed to be hidden (like windows/system32) and show the 'attributes' column, they say 'A' (archive) is the only attribute.

Shouldn't they say 'S' (system) and 'H' (hidden)? If so, is there a way to put the 'system' and 'hidden' attributes back on the appropriate files (without doing it manually one by one because that would take forever and I wouldn't know which ones to do)?

I am running Windows Vista.

Thanks! unhide.exe really saved me!

Hi There

It has been quite a while since I asked for help. I wonder if the following is doable as an Excel macro. The attached is only a demo with only 2 fields and a few rows of data. The real worksheet has more fields and around 3,000 rows.

Sheet 1 contains the data in its initial state and sheet 2 contains data after the macro is run. You will see from sheet 2 that the field labeled QUANTITY determines the number of rows to insert and copy the correct data into those inserted rows. I want the entire row to be copied down as opposed to only the data, since I have more columns than shown here. Is this possible to do? Can anyone help me with writing a macro, since I have over 3,000 rows to do.

Thanks for all your help. You guys are fantastic.

Windows 7 will delete "Read-Only" files without providing any warning (unlike XP).
Windows Media Player 12 will overwrite files which have the "Read-Only" attribute set.

Does anyone know how to make Windows 7 (& WMP) obey the "Read-Only" attribute on files?

A:"Read-Only" File Attribute

Hi lehnerus2000,

1) Read-only files can't be modified, but they can be copied, moved, renamed, or deleted. You can make a secure private folder which is inaccessible and undeletable. There are detailed instructions on Make Folder Inaccessible and Undeletable.

2)For WMP, go through the following page, theres a nice discussion about stopping WMP from overwriting jpgs.

Hi guys, I have a slight problem after my first data scraping session.

Basically I have around 500k of lines and around 50k "www.domain.com/username" urls that are in this text file. However the only part I need is the url and everything else is redundant. The URL is dynamic so it's different username everytime as well as on a random line rather then continuous every 5 lines or so.

Is there a software out there or maybe a notepad++/sublime2 algorythim that takes out all the data or simply extracts the data I want?

Here is what it looks like:

I have an Inspiron 17R. After installing a security update from Avast antivirus, I was told to restart to finish the update. After restarting, I get a blue screen stating that this PC needs to be repaired, the boot configuration data file is missing, and I needed to use recovery tools. The error code is: 0xc0000098
After purchasing the recovery USB from Dell, I ran the recovery tool and it started to scan for errors. After the scan, it said that the Master boot is fine, but the partition has a red X by it. I would have to back up and restore. When I tried to select the files I needed to specifically back up, the computer restarted. I didn't want to factory reset my computer as I still need some book marks and files I can't get any other way on it. Is there anything I can do?
