Hello
Hopefully this will get you going.  I am assuming that you are using Windows.

  1. Click on START > Run > type "Explorer" (no quotes)
  2. In Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options...
  3. Click on the View tab.
  4. In Advanced settings:  about 8 lines down is a folder option called "Hidden files and folders".  Right below that are two options, and the one you want to select is "Show hidden files and folders"
  5. Then click Apply at the bottom of the menu.
  6. If you wish this to be a permanent feature across all menus, click on "Apply to All Folders" button near the top of the same menu.
  7. Click "OK"
  8. Now you are good to go!

Hopefully this helps you out.  If it did, please vote on the solution.  Thank you.
Ken

I am trying to use Picasa 3 and was doing great, now when I try to use it I am getting a message that says CBlockFile::open Block err=2 thumbs ob I love the program and use it daily please tell me how...


Every folder on your C: drive that contains any picture will contain a file named 'thumbs.db'.
So, close Picasas.
Open "My Pictures", and then open the folder that contains the picture.
Click 'Tools".
Click "Folder Options".
Click "View"
Change the setting to "view hidden files".
Delete that 'thumbs.db' file.
Change the setting to "hide hidden files".
Re-open Picasa.
Picasa will rebuild that 'thumbs.db' file.

In My Computer Disk drive E - one of folder using earlier, now iam not find the same folder file. If i create in the same name folder showing the error message contains.... the existing file already...


you just accidentally hide your newly created folder. go to tools it in your upper view. click the folder options. > view > click the show hidden files and folders > and also unchecked the hide protected operating system file (Recommended). after that you will see the folder that you create. im sure virus and trojans are responsible for that.
