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 :)

Tip

Removing Thumbs.db Files


When viewing a folder with the Thumbnail view, WindowsXP creates a thumbs.db file.
This is a cache of the current pictures in that directory.
If you want to turn this feature off and save a little disk space

  1. Start the Windows Explorer

  2. Go to Tools / Folder Options / View

  3. In the first section under Files and Folders, check Do not cache thumbnails

  4. Now you can search for the thumbs.db file on your computer and remove them. No more should be created.

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".

How do you delete photos from Sansa e200 MP3 Player?


If you go into Windows Media Player, you have to change the Library option from Music to Photos and THEN go into the Sync tab - should now display photos instead of music.

Alternatively, you can double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the Sansa, and find the images or picture folder - you may have to change your usb mode to msc in order to view this folder (don't forget to change it back later, or not all of your files will show up when you want them to). ONLY delete image files - if you delete system files, your mp3 player will become unusable.

Or, you can follow the method reccomended by your manual - the full user's manual is available from Sanidsk's website:
Delete Photos and Video
The photos are stored in 2 locations on your Sansa…My Album and
Thumbnails. The instructions below for deleting photos and video from your
player were created using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 11.
To delete photos from your Sansa, please execute the following steps:
1) Connect your Sansa e200 to your computer
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection
3) Click the drive containing your photos
4) Click on the photo folder.
5) Highlight and delete the photos stored in My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\My Album and My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\thumbnail\My Album.

This will help.Good Luck.

Video thumbnails on my computer wont show up on laptop. The exact files on my PC show thumbnails of videos fine. Is there any software I have to download for my laptop to show the thumbnails?


Open the folder where the files are stored.
Click on 'Tools'
Click on 'Folder Options'
Click on the 'View' tab.
Check the box that says "Do not cache thumbnails"
Click ok.

I hope that fixes it.

Any way to make thumbnail view a default?


Your best bet is to use the built-in File Browser. It has 2 panes: 1 is a directory tree and the other is a thumbnail view of folder contents. I know Photoshop has this and would expect that Publisher has the same. So instead of going to File>Open, use the File Browser which is usually located near the top right-hand side of the toolbar within the application. Double-click a thumbnail to open the file.

There might be a special command within the application or a Windows registry setting that would enable a default thumbnail view in the Open dialog box, but I don't know of one off hand.

No Thumbnail video folder view


I was hoping to hear a quick registry fix but just bit the bullet and did a deep System Restore and all the updates that went with it. Works fine now but will never know what caused it. Still open to any and all info.
