Can't Delete WMA Desktop File (Error 0x80070057) With Picture

Sep 12, 2013

I have a Windows 8 64-bit Sony laptop.

I was deleting old unused folders on my Desktop when I ran into this wma file called "Untitled1" that doesn't play.

I remember one point in time it was useable and worked normally, but for some reason it won't now.

I just want this annoying file gone forever and I've been trying to search up the error code it keeps giving me (Error 0x80070057), but no such luck in solving my problem.

I also searched up "How to delete undeletable files" and tried some things out, but none of the ones that seemed closest to my problem worked out...

Here is a picture of the error pop-up window I get when trying to permanently delete the file or move it: [URL]

Delete Windows 8.1 Account Picture

Nov 3, 2013

It should be as easy as deleting the picture, but it's not... nothing is as easy as it should be in this train wreck. How do you delete an old account picture? I've tried just replacing it, but that turns into a whole puzzle you need to unravel first. If you pick the picture you want to replace, you would think that you would make it the big one of the 3, but you'd be wrong... that would make too much sense. If you hit browse and pick a new picture, the big one moves to the right and the new picture becomes the big one. Eventually you end up with 3 pictures and you get stuck in a sort of Rubic's Cube just trying to get the picture you want. This is some really bad software. Even the most die-hard M$ defenders have to know it, whether they want to admit it or not. So... how do you remove all the old pictures and only have the one you want.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Defrag Parameter Is Incorrect 0x80070057

Oct 28, 2013

I tried to upgrade to windows 8 through the store and if failed horribly, the pc refused to boot a an error code I that don't remember so I decided to wipe everything and install Windows 8.1 from a usb drive. Everything was fine for the past week and a half until 2 days ago when the disk defragmentation tool decided to stop working, I ran the tool many times after installing 8.1 and it has always worked but now I get a 0x80070057 error which should mean that the size of my partition is wrong. I did a chkdsk /r /f that took 2 hours to complete and it didn't find any errors and I also ran a sfc /scannow with no luck.

Here is a screenshot

After spending some time googling for the issue I found out that there are many Windows 8.1 users with the same issue and on the microsoft forums no one seems to be able to fix this. From what I understand this seems to be related to the size values of the partition which according to the defragger are wrong but the tool was working before and I didn't edit the partition in any way.

Opening Picture - Always Ask Before Open This File

Sep 15, 2014

Every time I open a picture it says "Always ask before open this file" ... over and over again, even when I uncheck it.

It never did this before till I had my computer reset to factory default at the repair shop. I am using Windows 8.1

It does it on about half the pictures that I have. I am working on a project and having to open lots and lots of pictures.

Unwanted Duplication Of New Files On Desktop To Picture Folder?

Feb 10, 2014

When I delete either the original or the duplicate, the other file is deleted as well and, when I restore the single example from the recycle bin, both are restored.

My own solution is:-

1) Drag and drop the original file onto its duplicate into the picture folder.
2) Stop creating files on the desktop.

However, I wonder if there is a better way of doing this that would allow me to create files on the desktop again. I often use the desktop to convert RAW photo files, prior to filing them in the picture folder, which may have something to do with this.

Desktop Picture Button Disappeared From Start Menu?

May 18, 2012

My desktop picture button has disappeared from my start menu. Is there a way to put the desktop picture button back in the start menu ? I noticed that i can bring up a desktop button by hovering the mouse pointer on the lower left corner but that is lame. I just want my desktop picture button back . also is there any way to have windows 8 open on the desktop ? I do not want to deal with the endless stupid steps required just to open the computer . first i have to raise the unnecessary full screen picture . then i have to type in my password . ( i do not want to type in my password because i am the only person who ever uses my computer and if someone else did i wouldn't care anyhow ) . then i get to the start menu which is filled with buggy programs that never work and now my desktop button has mysteriously disappeared .

I would like for windows 8 to have the option to simply open on my desktop without me doing anything . no password . no start menu . no full screen picture that i have to raise ( what is that thing for ? ) . I realize that the windows 8 start menu and password stuff is mainly due to the people who will use windows 8 with tablets and smart phones etc . but i only use my regular ( rather old ) desktop pc . the password screen and buggy start menu are totally unnecessary and a pita . Give windows 8 desktop users the option of booting the computer up to the desktop screen and bypassing all the other wasted steps . i do not want to use the apps on the start menu . i do not need to enter a password because i do not care if anyone uses the pc. And why did my desktop button disappear from the start menu which i do not even need?

How To Delete AVI File In Downloads Folder

Feb 4, 2014

So i'm trying to delete this file i have in my downloads folder, which is a normal .avi file. however, this file is really broken, it wont delete. I suspect this file makes my folder not showing thumbnails and acting slow and sometimes wont show anything at all, just a loading bar thing.

i tried deleting with cmd prompt, while explorer.exe is off, but command prompt stops responding.
i tried searching the folder for viruses, finds nothing.
i tried downloading Unlocker to delete it, but ends up with unlocker stops responding.
i tried quarantine the file, it gets into quarantine in NOD32 but the file is also still in my download folder, and NOD stops responding.

i get no message at all trying to delete it, it's just that nothing at all happens.

What is wrong with this file?! It plays fine though, just like a normal .avi file. Is there anything else i can try? cmd prompt and NOD32 don't get the windows "has stopped working" message, they just stop responding to me clicking any button in NOD32, or writing new text in cmd prompt. i can exit them as normal.

Administrator Account - Cannot Delete EXE File

Feb 2, 2014

Windows 8.1 ... My anti-virus program is Bitdefender Total Security 2013. It has detected a virus called "Adware.DomaIQ.I". It has infected a file named "7-zip.exe". The anti-virus cannot delete the virus for some reason. I tried to delete the exe but I get denied saying that I need permission from the administrator even though I'm in the administrator account. I have checked and the drive and even the infected file says all users have full control.

Cannot Delete Content Of WebCache Log File

Jan 16, 2013

I have noticed that a random .log file will appear in

C:Users"username"AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsWebCache folder.

The file usually has a name similar to V10009C.log. When this file first appeared I opened it with notepad and it was a bunch of jibberish (i.e. REDIRECTURL ), but within all that gibberish I was able to note that it was showing files I had recently accessed (i.e., V i s i t e d : "username"@ f i l e : / / / C : / W i n d o w s / S y s t e m / N e w % 2 0 f o l d e r/filename.extension).

I was able to "securely" delete the file. However, a few days later I noticed a new file appeared with a similar name. When I looked through that file it seemed to have all the previous information from the previous file I deleted and information on files I had accessed since deleting the old file. What this file is and how it keeps adding information of files accessed? I really do not want to have this file reach some absurd file size as it seems to be retaining / recovering information even after deletion. Also, there is a file in the same folder called WebCacheV01.dat that has grown to 33 mb. Can't see its contents and I can't delete.

Maintenance :: How To Add Option To Delete On Reboot When Right Click A File

Feb 20, 2013

I found a registry trick that is supposed to add an option to "delete on reboot" when you right click a file. To allow you to schedule files to be deleted when the computer restarts (incase they are currently in use and cant be). The registry edit looks like this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellDelete on rebootcommand]@="CMD /E:OFF /C REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentversionRunOnce /v "Del %1 OnNextReboot" /d ^"cmd.exe /c DEL /F /Q "%1"" /f""


A: how to edit the registry to make this trick work in windows 8 too.or if not possible
B: how to remove the registry edit and take away the broken "delete on reboot option"

Browsers/Mail :: Windows Live - Delete Message Generate Error

Jul 16, 2014

When you try to delete WLM messages you get this error

"An unknown error has occurred" and the message cannot be deleted.

People with this problem, often need to delete multiple messages or entire folders. That error appears because WLM only thinks it has that/those message(s), but actually that message is nowhere to be found in the the Windows email folders. The message exists no longer, but WLM still shows it as being in its own folders and you simply cannot delete it using the normal procedure.

For the easier way, one can drag the unwanted and non-existing emails to the Deleted Items folder, one by one. However, that is crazy when you have to get rid of hundreds or thousands of them (yes, I had that situation!).

This is how to trick WLM if you want to delete multiple emails giving you that error:

1. We try to simulate forwarding multiple messages. Select multiple emails by clicking on one and then using SHIFT to click and select multiple concatenated messages. Do that screen after screen (scroll down/up). Stop when you see the FORWARD button has become grey. That means one email is even more stubborn and doesn't even want to be forwarded.

2. Hold the SHIFT key and click the messages up and down until you find the culprit. It will be just outside your selection, when your selection manages to un-grey the Forward button.

3. With a lot of messages selected and concatenated, click on the Forward button. You'll get another error message "One or more messages could not be attached. Select OK to continue creating the note." Click Cancel.

4. Now something has unblocked those messages (or message information) and, with the selection on, you can Delete them by simply clicking the Red X (delete) button.

5. The message that made the Forward button grey, can now be deleted as well.

6. Keep doing that until you finish the bunch of messaged you wanted to delete when you got the initial error.

Hardware Drivers :: Unable To Delete Phantom Files After Disk Error Repairs?

May 9, 2014

Alright, so I was in another OS, and decided to copy over some files. The problem is when I got into Windows it gave me disk errors. So I allowed Windows to repair them automatically, and everything was dandy. But the files that were transferred are nowhere to be seen on both Operating Systems, but the disk space is still being taken up (About 100GB) so how on earth do I get rid of this phantom space?

Windows 8 Desktop - Change File Icon

Jan 6, 2013

I quite often place files on my Windows 8 desktop while im working on various stuff and have a problem with icons I cant fix, for example: I have a number of PDF files currently on my desktop and my pdf program is foxit. I DONT WANT TO CHANGE THE PROGRAM ICON, just the icons of the files it makes. I had the same issue on win7 and i know I can change folder view options to "show icons and not thumbnails" but unfortunately that screws up my image icons.

In windows 7, "types" and "nirsoft files type manager" allowed you to change the file type icon from the thumbnail to whatever icon you wanted. These 2 progs plus another I've tried don't work in win 8pro?
