Some of us may have encountered this error especially when opening folder like system volume information for example. You can take ownership of that folder, This is also helpful when you have just cleaned up your system of virus but you cannot open certain drives or folders.
You can also use this technique to disable the permissions of other administrators of the system so that no one but YOU can access the folder.
First I am gonna show you how to take ownership of folders. If you are looking for changing permissions to a disk drive, the please click here4809962.gif

I have some photo cd's and don't know how to download them to a file on my PC. Can you help me?


insert the CD to your dvd-Rom then open windows explorer. Go to the DVD-RW drive to your CD folder, then crop or extract every *.jpg extension to your drive C. You can customize or create a folder to which you are going to save the photos from your CD.

Hides all my folders and files in drive E


Your files and folder might be infected by a virus so the antivirus hide them for your security. Try search the folders name, after they are found right click and open containing folder and then copy to a new folder.

Good luck

About folder option


Click on Start - Run and then type:
Regedit
then go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\NOHIDDE N.
There should be two registry entries there:

- CheckedValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2
- DefaultValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2

(Correct them if necessary.)

Now open the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL .

- CheckedValue : Type: DWORD Value: 1
- DefaultValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2

(Correct them if necessary.)

If the problem persists, open Start, Run, type "regsvr32 /i shell32.dll" and
click OK.
reboot the computer.
thats it, have fun :)

Couldn't open the hard Drive folders....


hi sir,

i think you have an autorun.inf file residing at your local drives. this probably infected by a virus.

go to control panel >folder option> click View> choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files, this will show hidden autorun.inf file. In your explorer, right click your local disk and click explore, this will show all your files and folders of your drive, navigate autorun.inf file, if found delete it.
note: it has an associated file called vbsscript file...if found also delete it..do the same with the other drives. empty recycle bin and restart.
