There are plenty of free, online virus scanners.
Simply Google "online virus scanner".
Go with reputable names, like Kaspersky, Avast, AVG, HouseCalls (TrendMicro), Panda, ..., etc.
Anyone of the above should do the job.
After cleaning, you need to install a good virus scanner that updates itself automatically at boot-up.

SOURCE: Lock a folder

To my knowledge, this is not possible with the registry. You can change permissions so that only your account can access the folder, or you can make the folder hidden.

SOURCE: Vista pc: adobe reader clobbers desktop

unless you are really set on using adobe's reader i strongly suggest using another reader like FOXIT READER ---

http://mirrors.foxitsoftware.com/pub/foxit/reader/desktop/win/3.x/3.0/enu/FoxitReader30_enu_Setup.exe

Adobe is a bloated, slow resource hog.

Be sure to uninstall Adobe Reader first though.

SOURCE: Desktop URL shortcuts no longer have website icons. Ugly E symbol

Right click on the shortcut and copy the url.

Create a new shortcut and paste the url into the location, give it a name then save the new shortcut.

The new shortcut should appear on your desktop with the icon of the website. You can then delete the old shortcut.

Unfortunately, this seems to be the only way to get the proper icon. You can click on the change icon button when you're viewing the propertis of the shortcut but the icon of the website will not be displayed.

If this information is helpful to you, please take a few minutes to rate this reply.

Tip

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
Shortcut.
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet
ExplorerQuick Launch

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

Computer display , with 3 triplicate icons??,


Right click on Taskbar > Toolbars, and manage. Remove check from undesired bar. Only the triplicates may be a concern. Make sure to run a full virus scan, but also may be a slip of the mouse by creating shortcuts while highlighting.

ALL folder turned into shortcuts and i really don't know how to get back my stuff. You know the hard drive has music shortcut document shortcut. Somebody help me.


You must have had them all selected and then dragged them somewhere, then maybe dragged back, creating shortcuts at that location. This could be done accidentally by holding the ALT key (or if that key is stuck down) while dragging them back or by holding the right mouse button instead of the left. If it was the right-button thing though, you would have had to also left-click on 'Create Shortcut' on the menu that popped up.

If this is what happened your 'real' folders will be wherever you dragged TO and the shortcuts will be wherever you dragged BACK to.

The fact that there are shortcuts is not alarming. Your originals must be somewhere! Use the Search function to search for any file or folder name you can remember. Start at the root of the system (My Computer) to search everything; it could take a while so be patient. When you find the missing folders just select them all and drag back to where they belong (or Cut from current location, Paste in new location).

Cannot open Reader on Desktop - click the icon and nothing happens


If you mean Adobe Reader, then either the shortcut has lost the information on what file it is associated with or Adobe Reader is no longer on the computer. If you recently transferred to a new computer using the Windows Transfer Wizard, the shortcut may be pointing to a different version folder or to a not yet installed program. Remember the Transfer Wizard does not install the programs and doesn't transfer the registry information about installed software from the old computer.

For Windows:
First, right click on the icon and then click on Properties. That will give you the location and name of the program it is associated with (as it was created). For example: on my Win7 32-bit machine this reads "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe". Next open the Control Panel Programs list, see if Adobe Reader is listed. (For Win7, this is Start > Control Panel > Programs. WinXP, look for the Add and remove programs section.) Open Computer (My computer) and navigate to C:\Program Files. See if you have an Adobe Folder and then the reader folder location. (If the folder exists, check for the exe file and if that full folder name matches the one for the shortcut.)

If Adobe Reader isn't installed, go to http://www.adobe.com and follow the link on the right hand side to download and install Adobe Reader. Then remove the bad shortcut since a new one will be added to the desktop.

If you have Adobe Reader installed but the shortcut isn't pointing to the correct location, you can create a new shortcut by right clicking on the exe and choosing create a shortcut. Before you do this, double click on the reader.exe and check that it does launch. Otherwise, uninstall and reinstall the program.

I hope this helps.

I wonder if you can help me, I am having difficulty downloading Yahoo Messenger, for some unknown reason it my computer will not download the icon onto desktop when asked, a windown comes saying all files...


What browser are you using?
If you are using Firefox and windows vista than the file is downloaded to your downloads folder under your user folder.
In past versions, downloaded files were saved on your desktop and this is not the case anymore.

Look in your "downloads" folder, the icon will be there.
