Can't find my Google icon


Fix All My Computer Shortcut Links
Computers often use shortcut links to make it easier for users to locate and open files.
These links are commonly placed in a folder easily accessible to users, such as a desktop folder.
When a shortcut is created, it is given directory information and an icon.
If the file associated with a shortcut is later moved, the shortcut may fail to locate the file.
When this problem occurs, you need to update the shortcut's directory information.
This process is often automated by operating systems, but in a some instances, you need to repair shortcuts manually

Right-click on a broken shortcut link's icon.
Select the "Properties" option. Locate the "Target" box and copy its information into your clipboard using the Ctrl and C keys.
Open the "My Computer" folder on your computer and paste the target information into the folder's address bar using the Ctrl and V keys.
If the address bar is not viewable, you may need to enable it in the folder's settings.
Find address bar options in the "View" menu under "Toolbars."
The file's target path folder will open.
Locate the file in the target path folder.
If the file is not present, the target path is inaccurate and likely the cause of the shortcut link error.
Locate the file in its correct folder.
Browse folders or search for the file by typing the file name into the "Start" menu.
After finding the file, open the properties of the shortcut link icon again.
Copy the file's correct path, from the containing folder's address bar, and paste it in to the "Target" box, replacing the incorrect link.
Another way to find a file's target path is by right clicking on the file and selecting Properties.
You can find accurate target information in the "Target" box, provided the icon is the original file icon and not a shortcut.

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).

Zone Alarm will not start up when I turn on my computer?


Hi,
You can ADD the "Zone alarm" executable to your windows startup.
This can be done in 1 simple way.

1. Locate the "Zonealarm.exe" in your "Program files" folder. Usually your Program Files folder will be here "C:\Program Files". Just run a search for "Zonealarm.exe" inside this folder.

2. After locating the "Zonealarm.exe" file, right-click on that file. And select "Create Shortcut".

3. After that you'll find a "Zonealarm.exe" Shortcut file or icon inside the same folder.

4. Just COPY or CUT the shortcut file.

5. Now Right click on the "START" button.

6. Select "Open all users".

7. This will open a windows explorer window. Locate "Programs" folder and Enter it.

8. Inside you should locate "Startup" folder and enter it.

9. Once u ar inside the "Startup" folder, paste the already copied "Zonealarm.exe" shortcut file.

10. That's it. Now try re-starting the system.

Thanks
