Can you elaborate on where you are seeing this?
Is this in the title bar of the Explorer window which shows the path and "(Not Responding)", or is this in a different place?

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".

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.

I have an original cd-rom for xp pro, but no product key, is there a way to retrieve it from the cd- rom?


  • Use a product key recovery program to find your lost key. An example of such a program is Product Key Explorer

  • 2

    Install the program by double-clicking on the file you just downloaded and going through the installation process.

  • 3

    Open the program when ready and then click "select computer" and make sure it says "Local Computer." Click on the "Find Keys" button.

  • 4

    Locate the program that you installed through your CD-ROM. Next to the product name should be your product key.


  • From here: http://www.nsauditor.com/product_key_finder.html


    Good luck.

    Trying to install HP c4280 printer to Dell OPTIPLEX GX620 computer w/ XP PRO. Asking for sRCB.ICM from XP CD ROM Can not locate the sRGB file. Suggestions???


    The file might be located on the Dell system disk.
    You can also look in c:\windows\system, c:\windows\inf, c:\windows\system32, or in the I386 directory which may be directly under c:\windows
    I checked some sources and saw this problem listed only twice--once for Win98.
    The name of the file you are looking for is probably SRGB..ICM. I found it on my Win XP system here: C:\windows\Driver Cache\I386\driver.cab
