    Hi sudheerngen as per my last message Operating system and PC type please. Also do you have admin rights.

    Also could you change the rating you gave me please?

    Its not a fair rating as you did not let me know you have already tried this method.

    We are not mind readers.

    Thankyou

    Thanks for the rating appreciated.

    OK looks like we need to look at your files from DOS.

    I will presume you know nothing about DOS.

    Click on start run and type in CMD and press return.

    You will get a black window open.

    This is commonly called a DOS box.

    OK to get to the directory you need to see the files in we will start by getting back to C: prompt.

    Type in cd\ This will get you to the c: prompt.

    From here we need to get the the folder or directory your files are in.

    Lets say they are in a folder called fred which is in a folder called inhere.

    first you would need to get in inhere.

    type cd inhere.

    your prompt will look like this

    c:\inhere\

    Then type cd fred

    your prompt will look like this

    c:\inhere\fred

    type in attrib and press return

    you will now get a listing of all the files in this directory.

    right click on the toolbar (Usually blue unless you changed it) choose edit select all.

    Then press return which will put all the text onto the clipboard.

    Paste this into a add a comment box here on Fix-Ya! soon as I see it I will look at the files to see what attributes they have.

    I will then let you know what we need to do to get the hidden attribute removed.

    If you want to mail me use z0d@msn.com

My computer recognizes that I have 1.8 GB left on the disk but when I try to download songs it claims that the disk if full. What do I do?


Good day sir/maam, hi, your SD card may be infected by a virus that wont allow anymore software or files to be stored on the disk, run a virus scan on your PC, there is an easy way to check if your PC is infected, to check, on the my computer menu bar click tools, folder options, view, select show hidden files and folder, then apply, close the window, Now go back to the folder option, view and check the show hidden files, its changed. and goes back to not show hidden files. If this happens, download AVG anti virus and scan your computer.

Hidden files are not showing


Hi there.
It sounds like you have a virus on your machine, apart from not being able to view hidden files and folders is there anything else thats going wrong with the PC at all?
for example on start-up do you get any strange error messages or has the recycle bin name been changed?
