Customization :: Saving Folder View Options

Sep 17, 2015

I don't know why or when but suddenly Windows became unable to save wherever change I made to a folder. Since Win7 I despise this "new" system in which, if you want to make a folder organize it's elements by Modification Time, you must do it in every single folder and if you have a lot, that becomes really annoying. Now, the thing is that I have My Videos folder organize by Modification Time, so I go, right click, view options, more columns..., I pick it and then I do it.

But when I reload the folder it doesn't save any of what I just did. It goes back to default which is organize by Name. Also, I have it set to Very Large Icons, that doesn't either. I tried resetting them to default, I tried running sfc/scannow and it did repair something but didn't solve my issue. I'm on the edge of reformatting. I can't stand this.

Windows Photo Viewer Ignoring Folder Sort Options?

Aug 27, 2015

I like to sort some of my folders by date and for some reason I can't understand, when I open an image with WPV, it gets sorted by name instead of date (the folder remains the same, it's just the WPV that screws everything). If I wanted to see whatever I have inside the folder by name, I would just sort it by name for god's sake.

Cannot Delete Persistent Registry Key

Mar 4, 2016

There is a registry key that Symantec created. After I uninstalled it it didn't go away. It is in the HKLM/SOFTWARE/WOWNODE folder. There are some other numbers in the name of the wownode folder but I can't remember them now.
Here's what I've tried so far.
Basic deletion - "cannot delete"
Giving myself full administrative permissions - "cannot delete"
Running in safe mode - "cannot delete"
Using the regdelnull utility in case it was a null key - did not find any null keys
The most powerful thing I've tried so far was to turn off my computer and boot from a windows repair disk, which allowed me to access the BIOS command line, and load the registry hive from my main windows partition. Even editing the registry offline in this way still produces the same error. I don't even understand how this is possible?
What could possibly allow the key to avoid deletion and how can I fix it?

Move Documents Folder From Doctor Web Folder

Jan 13, 2016

My 'documents' folder suddenly got moved into another folder named 'Doctor Web.' Looking into this, I find that Doctor Web is a piece of security software originating in Russia, apparently quite respectable, but it's not something I ever installed. According to its properties, the Doctor Web folder was created in 2014, but it wasn't on my computer two days ago when a backup I ran had no errors. Today, it choked on the new folder. I'm attaching a screen grab to illustrate the situation.

My question is, is there some method by which I can move the 'documents' folder from the 'Doctor Web' folder. put it back where it belongs and delete the 'Doctor Web' folder? I have access to all my documents, but I am not at all happy with them being spontaneously moved like this. Al

Performance :: Cannot Edit Or Write To Registry

Feb 10, 2016

I have been working with windows 10 X64 PRO for a little bit now. I can still not figure out why my scripts (.vbs) or .exe that I push to or use on my domain machines will not edit or create keys in the registry. The only way i can do it is to full kill UAC then reboot then make changes then turn it back on then reboot again. Listed below our the UAC settings we have set for our select few windows 10 machines. We have UAC fully off in windows 7, but it is needed in windows 10 to have apps run.


[Code] …..

What I need to do so i can make registry change on the fly. This going to be a big deal breaker for us to move to Windows 10 if i can not change values.

Can't Log Into Account After Deleting Registry Files

Nov 19, 2015

I have been having problems with successfully updating Windows 10 for the past months where the updates failed to install. I followed some steps on deleting some registry keys under ProfileList, which according to the article were causing the problem. However, after deleting one named s-1-5-18 and rebooting, I am now not able to login to my account. I also don't have access to safe-mode for some reason. When I do the Shift-restart procedure, it takes the to the system configuration window with only one option, shutdown computer.

Alternatively, I also have Kali Linux installed (which is how I am writing this threat right now), allowing me to have full access to my Windows partition, the export file of my registry key I deleted, and I even have access to my recycle bin folder, where I can see the folder s-1-5-18 I deleted. However, I don't know the right directory of this folder to move it to or I don't know if I could just import the registry file I exported before all went to hell. So basically, I have full access to every file and folder within my Windows partition from my Linux partition, which leads me to believe that I should be able to fix the registry files from here.

Import Or Merge Registry Key Not Working?

Aug 28, 2015

I exported a key (ieshims) to document folder. I made corrections using Notepad++ to some paths and saved it. I imported the key back and everything went fine.

The problem is that when I go back to look at my corrections in the registry, nothing is updated. The old key is shown.

The reason I exported/imported the key is that regedit doesn't allow me to make correction of a path on the left side of the key i.e. paths.

Searching Through Registry Takes Forever

Nov 24, 2015

Recently i've updated my Windows 10 Pro x64 with that big November update without any issues except that now searching through registry takes literally forever because it never ends. It still finds entries but eventually it would just get stuck on searching and if i try to cancel it - regedit crashes.

This seems to happen somewhere during the search through HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entries because i can search fine up to HKLM and past it but not inside it.

I've been wondering what could be causing this?

I've also tried exporting HKLM entries and found out that it's about 230 mb which seems a lot for a registry.

For some reason, I cannot import this registry script I made. Syntax seems to be correct. I'm thinking it's most likely an invalid key somewhere. Look at the attachment, what is causing this error: "The specified file is not a registry script."

Registry Error That Shutdowns PC Without Warning

Nov 12, 2015

My pc keeps on shutting down when I'm not using the mouse or keyboard for 5 - 10 minutes. This all started with the shortcut "shutdown.exe" thing. I've been using this shortcut with a code of (*time* -s -t) from windows 7, 8, 8.1 to shutdown my pc at a specific time. And when I used it on Windows 10, it started doing the registry error shutdowns (Light blue screen with SAD face).

Can't Delete CCleaner Registry Entry

Oct 1, 2015

Right after I upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10, I downloaded the new version of Ccleaner.   I noticed that the following entry kept showing up in the registry cleaner: 

"ActiveX/COM Issue    InProcServer32C:Program Files (x86)HPCommonAclmControlProxy.dll   HKCRCLSID{047466F1-82AE-455A-AFC4-D3AC463FBF6B}". 

Under Windows 7 I never saw that entry pop up in the Ccleaner registry cleaner. I got sick of seeing it so I saved a copy and deleted the entry.  However, it came right back again. Every time I deleted the entry, it came back.
My computer is running fine and this entry does not show up as malware in MBAM, MBAE or Windows Defender.  However, I am concerned as to why it keeps showing up in the Ccleaner registry cleaner.  Emsisoft lists the file as being safe and a legit Hewlet Packard file and I do have an HP printer.
Is this behavior due to the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Where the start menu doesn't open when its clicked on. I have seen other posts with this issue where its an issue with personalization settings under ms-settings.

Ran multiple different virus scanners.
