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"

Jan 25, 2013

Recently I've started having this problem where if I right-click anywhere in File Explorer, no matter what folder, my cursor switches to loading, then the folder goes to (Not Responding), and I have to close it out which causes Windows Explorer to disappear for a few seconds.

Installed Apps After Reboot Icons Turning White / Right Click Not Working

Feb 23, 2013

This problem happens to me right after the installation of Stardock's Start8 or another app called StartIsBack. It could be those 2 apps or it could be something else I don't know.

The problem is, after a reboot, all of a sudden, the icons lose their image and they just become blank white files, if I right click on a file for example to Run As Administrator or anything else, the whole context menu doesn't appear and Explorer just freezes until I force restart

This happened to me in 8 diff. formats / fresh install I finally gave up and just reverted back to Windows 7. Could it be those start menu replacement apps or perhaps some dodgy windows updates?

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

Right Click Crashes File Explorer

Oct 20, 2013

I often have 3,4,5 sessions of File Explore open at once. [old habit] I can use the keyboard to copy/paste, etc with no problem. But if I use the right mouse click to "copy" or check Properties, or anything else, file explorer freezes for a few seconds, then closes. In fact it closes all sessions and shows the default Windows screen [as if just booting up] and finally all the icons reappear. It takes about 15 seconds for the screen to return to normal.

Replacement mouse does the same. Right click works perfectly inside a file, like to copy text, etc, and inside every other program. Only in File Explorer does it totally crash, no matter if only one open or many.

File Explorer - New Item Option Has Folder Only

Feb 28, 2013

I have an external HD connected to my Windows 8 machine. It's split into 2 partitions with lots of files and folder on each. On one partition while in Windows Explorer the "New Item" option only has "Folder" as one of it's items. Same if I right click, "Folder" is the only item. On the other partition "New Item" shows a list of items including text file, bitmap file, shortcut etc. Something happened recently as I have text files I've created since a few weeks ago. Also, if I create a new folder, while in that folder the "New Item" shows the list of items text file, bitmap file, shortcut etc. How to change this?

Windows 8.1 File Explorer Fails To Open With Right Click

Mar 31, 2014

Windows Explorer as well as other desktop programs failed to respond to a right click from any interface. I was also having printer errors that involved total failure to print. At first, I thought I needed to uninstall all my Epson software and printer, but that resulted in no change. This was likely a Context Menu Handler problem. It suggested downloading a Shell File Extensions View (ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows) from NirSoft version which was free.

The first download I did not use out of fear so I accessed the Context Menu area via regedit, but saw no way to disable any suspected third party Context Menu Handlers. So, in the end, I swallowed hard and ran the NirSoft application. I was able to see all the shell items in the registry, and sorted them by age, the most recent was a Context Menu Handler from Norton Internet Security occurring during the most recent update.

The manager software allowed me to disable just that one handler, and after a restart, File Explorer and everything else behaved normally. So, now I am posting this so it only takes you less than an hour to address this issue, where I spent 4-5 hours on it. I reinstalled the Norton Internet Security and all is still well.

Apps / Software :: Double Click A File Reader Does Not Open?

Oct 20, 2013

I'm on 64 bit and have 8.1 Pro installed. When I double click a file reader does not open. This wasn't the case before the upgrade. Tried multiple times but it just doesn't open. Went to Task Manager and noticed 8 instances of Acrobat Reader and shut them down all one by one. The files started opening again. After a while again I have to go back to the task manager and close reader which is cumbersome and irritating.

Maintenance :: Laptop Wakeup From Sleep Reboot

Aug 27, 2013

I recently upgraded my laptop, an HP g6-1b60us from Win 7 to Win 8Pro. All works fine, except when the Laptop wakes up from sleep. It has to reboot. Knowing that the HP POwer Manager was not compatible, I had uninstalled it. That still didn't resolve the problem. I finally ran a power efficiency diagnostics report. It's 6pages long, but in the end, different usb items prevent the laptop from entering sleep/suspend state. I only recognize one of them.

Maintenance :: Intermittent Freezing But NO BSOD Or Reboot

Aug 17, 2014

It boots OK. Dell 755 dual core 1.8 3.5Gb ram,

For some time now, the machine will suddenly freeze, after 10 sec or so back to working, using any program. When I open outlook I'm now getting a message saying outlook didn't close properly, or personal folder didn't close properly. I always shut down al rpgrogram before switching off.

After it's frozen you can hear the HDD crackling a little, it's like backing up. Don't a HDD scan and check everything seem to be OK. I did look through the log, I noticed a lot of multiple triggers. Don't know what that means.

I run a Huawei modem since I used a Tigo chip, when It boots up, I notice the FDD light comes on. When I leave the modem in the USB and boot up, I loose my CD ROM icon, to get it back If I need it, I have to remove any usb drive like Modem, flash drive it reappears. This has happened for long long time. It did the same in Win7.

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.

Apps / Software :: Onenote - Add File Using Windows Right-click Context Menu

May 22, 2014

I have Onenote installed on my Windows 8.1 laptop.

Is it possible to right click a text document (or any file/document) saved on my laptop and have it sent to Onenote.

Onenote does not show when I right click a text document.

I have used Evernote before and I'm sure I could do this.

Perhaps it is possible but Onenote does it in a different way?

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Shutdown From Logon Causing Reboot Failure

Nov 2, 2013

I do a shutdown from the Windows Logon screen which I believe is a full power off rather than a hybrid shutdown:

(The process C:WINDOWSsystem32winlogon.exe (XXXXX) has initiated the power off of computer XXXX on behalf of user NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x500ff Shut-down Type: power off)

However when I restart the computer it then goes into a black screen with a pointer and never completes reboot.

The only way to fix this is to reboot again which I am guessing is using the "Hybrid Boot" profile:

"The last shutdown's success status was false. The last boot's success status was true."

This did not occur in Windows 8.

How to diagnose the shutdown culprit?
