If you have same OS (operating system) disk or recovery disk which has been currently installed in your PC/Laptop then follow these instructions:
insert your os or recovery disk in to cd/dvd drive then
go to Start>Run then type in "sfc /scannow" without quotes and hit enter.
it will takes few minutes to restore your all settings back (it just restores only OS settings so you wont lose any files and folders) so just let it run until it's done.
once done just reboot system your system then you will be good to go.
Note: there is space between "sfc and /" so if you don't hit space then it wont let you go.
Thank you.

Dropbox flashing


Quote from TIA James... it works!

Very recently, possibly after update to 1.0.10, I have noticed a peculiar effect, more so with XP than with Vista.
On opening any folder inside my Dropbox, the window constantly refreshed and flashed for some time, longer if more files. Attempting to scroll down caused the scrollbar to flick back to the top. After some attempts, everything settled down. The folder would then not behave this way again. The effect stopped if View was set to list or details i.e. not thumbnails.
I guessed that Dropbox was attempting to sync the thumbs.db file, but this file was being updated by windows at the same time and a conflict occurred.
I have unchecked "Cache thumbnails" (Tools/Folder Options/View tab for XP) for the Dropbox folder and the effect has ceased.
Query... is the new version incorrectly handling something here? This effect has only recently occurred. But it has occurred on all computers, some XP some Vista. All have updated recently.
TIA James :)

How to convert thumbnail into ICONS in windows 8 interface


First time I installed windows 8 i faced that problem that in place of icon it was showing only thumbnail. So here goes the solution to convert thumbnail into icons in windows 8 interface-

Open up the folder with the pictures and click on the View tab
Next click on Options to the far right
Then Click on Change folder and search options
This opens up an options menu
Navigate to the view tab
uncheck the box that says Always show icons, never thumbnails
And Check the box that says Display file icon on thumbnails.

This should solve the problem. It worked for me.

File and folder names are not visible in one drive of my pc


For Windows XP:

Open the problematic folder, Press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Thumbnails". It'll toggle the file/folder names.

Actually its a feature to show/hide file names while in Thumbnails mode.

For Windows Vista and 7:

Open the problematic folder, right-click in empty area and de-select "View -> Hide File names". If the option is not available, then press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Medium Icons".

Does not display preview of pictures in explorer in small, medium, large icons after update of vista


All you can do is to try to reinstall said update. If you can identify the specific update, try reinstalling it. If not, download and install the latest Vista service pack.

Thumbnail generation


There is no known software compatibility with adobe premiere and vista. The problem will be that you might have changed any setting in vista for thumbnails. I know vista is much different than windows. So, have a look around at the settings.

Hidden files


Hi,

When you open the window "My Computer" you need to open the "Folder options". under "Folder Options" you have three tabs, you need to click on the "View" tab.
Under "View" tab you have an option as "Hidden files and folders", you may select the option according to your choice over there.

Note : - In win XP the "Folder options" are present under the "Tools" tab, however it might be under the "View" tab in the "my computer" in win 98. I don't have a Win 98 handy to check that. i am sure you would be able to find that out. Once you have the "Folder options" the steps are same as mentioned above.

Hope that resolves your issue. Will wait for tee rating.

Thanks
Sammy
