    Thanks for your interest Sandrew, I did what you said but it still won't delete in safe mode. I get the same message.

    It was an attachment I saved on my desktop, it saved it twice, the attachment and an empty file. both look the same, one is 88kb the one I can't delete has 0bytes, the file name has no extension, just File.

    I use a Levono laptop OS XP

    If you can think of anything else to try please let me know

    regards Toni

Restart you pc, but keep pressing F8 while its booting up, this will get you into a menu where you need to select 'start windows in safe mode', then when prompted for the operating system choose windows then allow it to run.

You will then be presented with a large sized desktop with you account and administrator account, choose either then go to the folder you wish to delete and delete it, restart pc and then it should be running as normal

Cannot set as desktop


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
viswalp.jpgEnsure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

Yes you can, and I do it all the time. I copy the pictures to "My Pictures" folder. If you OPEN the DCIM folder by clicking on it, then SELECT ALL, then choose copy. Now close your camera folder. and OPEN "My Pictures" and then choose PASTE, all your pics should be inserted into "MY PICTURES". The reason your pics are deleted even after you've renamed them is because your OS is only copying them as shortcuts. If you don't want to copy or paste, next time you try to save one of your pics, hold down the shift key while dragging your pic to your folder and it won't move it as a shortcut. Hope this helps.

I PUT 203 EMAILS IN THE TRASH. HOW DO I SAVE ALL OF THEM INTO A FOLDER. CAN YOU HELP ME.?


The Trash folder deletes itself every few days, without your having any control over the timing. The best solution for saving 'deleted' e-mails to act upon at your own time is to create a new folder (My Own Trash ?, My Deletes ?) and move all deleted e-mails to that folder. You can move many at one time by using the check boxes beside each mail, then select Move. Don't forget to empty this folder once in a while ... :-)

How do I save a jpg photo to my computer that has been sent via e-mail and give it a file name? I have a group of jpeg photos that were sent via e-mail, how do I delete the ones I don't want? My...


This depends of the email client you are using. If they are sent as attachments then save those attachments or download them to your hard drive. If they are embedded in the email then you will want to right click on the pictures and choose 'save as'.
Once the pictures are in the desired folder you can right click on the file again and choose 'rename' This will give you the option to name the picture anyway you like.

Possibly you may have some file on the computer that needs deleted. Some of your other problems seem to be part of the normal hi-jacking from going to web sites. Make sure you have a updated Anti Virus, Registry fix, disk cleaner. and necessary software on your computer? You might go through those files that you want to tranfer, and delete out one's you really won't need, and see if that helps. I have a feeling it will if you delete the right one. A real good disk cleaner might do the job.

it sounds like you deleted the images. If you are downloading images from your camera or card....you should open the folder to view images. hold control key down and select all images that you want to download. right click on them on click save.

it sounds like you are trying to rename a folder before downloading anything. I know that when I try to edit or rotate any of my images on my card, i first need to download the images to a folder before doing any edits. it does sound like you were trying to rename your folder. normally, you would right click on folder, and click rename. hope this helps. if you need anything else, feel free to ask!!!

I need to delete protected files from my pc running xp


Those files are protected for good reason, they are usually protected operating system files. Delete those and your PC will stop booting. If you KNOW the files are not essential then you can unprotect them using an unlocker. Windows washer has a file delete on reboot option, as well as malwarebytes and advanced windows care. They can delete the files as the system reloads.

So why you didn't format your system?!!
Make a backup from your files and then format your system and make a new partion for it and then install your OS.
It could save you!

LG Dare - can not delete empty group contact. Does anyone know how? When the contact group is empty, there is no option tab that will allow me to choose to delete it, there is only an "add" tab.


Goto Contacts -> Groups

Click on the icon to the left of the group name a check mark will appear.
At the bottom, right of the screen the options menu icon will appear.
Click on options and either erase the group or rename it.

This can be done with new and default groups.

ONLY 10 MEMBERS IN A GROUP!

Good luck.
