Maintenance :: Win 8 Keeps Deleting Thumbnail Cache (changed Folder Permission)

Oct 26, 2012

Normally in windows 7 I would change the folder persmission to deny "detele files and folders", but these options are greyed out on my windows 8. I'm the admin, and even if I log in as super administrator it's still greyed out.

How can I fix this problem and prevent Windows 8 from deleting thumbnail cache?

It's very inconvenient especially with couple of opened windows.

Windows 8 Save Browsing History After Resetting?

Nov 13, 2013

So I reset my pc to factory setting and everything went good but when starting either internet explorer or google chrome it seems like they saved my browsing history.

I used the same email account that I used before the resetting.

Is that good? or my pc wasnt resetted at all and there are still some files that weren't deleted.

Plus I found some google chrome files that remained in a folder and I click on one of them and it brought me to google chrome official download page.

Asus Laptop Windows 8 Stuck At Resetting PC 2%

Apr 30, 2014

Asus laptop Windows 8 stuck at Resetting PC 2%, Only option is hard reset??

This laptop belongs to my Grandma (87 years old). **She did not make the recovery disk for the computer.**

I got to the Recovery options and it has been stuck at 2% for about 6 hours. Asus OEM X55C Windows 8

NOTE: Yesterday I told Grandma I would see what was wrong, but it would bug out, freeze, etc when trying to log into the administrator. The screen would go totally black and then freeze. So, the computer has shut down improperly several times.

However, it did repair the disk last night before I attempted this recovery.

Maintenance :: Resetting Windows 8 Also Affect Partition

Oct 14, 2013

I want to reset my Windows 8 system but I have a question.

I've made a seperate partition (acts like a backup for situations like this). This partition stores my music, pics, documents etc.

If I reset Windows 8 will it also affect this partition, or just the partition where the OS is installed?

Security :: Reinstalling Windows 8 - Does Resetting Move Viruses

Apr 21, 2013

I have a new Lenovo G580, came with Windows 8. When it first arrived I mistakenly added new partitions (repartitioned) to the hard drive. (Actually it should not be a mistake - It should allow me to do so, its my choice.) . After I repartitioned I realized that reinstalling partition of Windows 8 no longer works through onekeyrecovery of Lenovo. All the partitions are there - including the hidden partitions arrived with PC - all the recovery partitions but it does no longer reinstall Windows.

I called Lenovo - I believe they will send me the new recovery disks, if so. But until then I am trying to find a solution - and I learnt that there is a feature of resetting windows in the Windows settings "remove everything and reinstall windows."

I will use this option and make a recovery hidden folder and ISO myself with this fresh install of Windows with "paragon backup" etc.

But.... I need to know if this resetting PC option is really safe - If since the time I used Windows 8 until now, some viruses and malware spreaded into my computer - would these have the possibility to inject themselves to windows reset feature and the files it will use? As these should be in my C: drive I believe this is a possibility.

I will use this image after reset always for reinstalling Windows 8 so I have to make sure there are no viruses or malware entered into it.

Windows Explorer Stops Showing Files Or No File Thumbnail

Aug 21, 2013

Annoying error of windows explorer. Windows explorer is getting crashed while opening any folders accidentally, especially folders with large number of files and images. first it appears as windows explorer is unable to load files thumbnails (any kind of files) and appears as white or blank icons regardless the type of file. then when opening my computer in another window , it couldn't load even contents of drivers and hangs as "searching for items".

All this happens suddenly after weeks of normal windows usage. I resolve it by backing up system using Acronis image. but the problem persists. I tried virus scan with no success using AVG. I made thorough scan for C with no result too.

Note that this problem I found with Windows 7 and it forced me to upgrade to Windows 8 then I'm experiencing the same problem now. I don't Understand why.

Note: I think there's no hardware (HDD) error cause I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows and it's browsing files perfectly.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Forgets Thumbnail View In Explorer

Dec 24, 2013

My Windows 8.1 64 bit started forgetting the view settings from a folder.So if I go in a folder and I set it to List-View for example,whenever I close that folder and I reopen it the view is set automatically to Details view.And this applies to every folder in my computer except Desktop.It drives me crazy,especially in my pictures folders.

Also with this problem another one came.I can't set a program to open some files,so the file associations for some files is broken. For example i can't set qTorrent to open torrent files.It just won't open them and the files apear as white documents just like I hadn't had a Torrent program installed already.I find it weird that both problems appeared together.

I previously had to reinstall windows on my machine,because of this problems.It worked normal at the begging,but today these problems appeared again.I tried scanning SFC Scan with no result.

Update:I also just discovered that Metro apps are not working anymore...what the heck its wrong with my windows.

Tablets :: Resetting Password On Surface Pro 2?

Sep 15, 2014

Reset password on Surface Pro 2, they haven't used it for a month and could not remember last password they used. Built-in resetting option won't work because it will erase all user files they have on that tablet. I usually use Nordahl password recovery tool when i need to blank or change forgotten password, it worked fine for me on regular non-tablet Windows machines, both options - CD and USB boot.

I'm not familiar with Surface tablet, so i did online research on how to boot Surface from USB, tried all options, but was not able to boot it from USB stick (i used 3 different USB 2.0 sticks).

Here is what i tried: I was able to get into boot screen and disable Secure Boot Control, then able to get into Advanced Options screen, checked USB drive option. Tried 3 different USB sticks with 3 different password recovery software - no luck. Any experience with Surface Pro 2 password recovery? Either i'm doing something wrong, missing a step, or maybe older USB sticks don't agree with Surface USB 3.0 port? Should i try to plug in external DVD drive and attempt to boot from it?

Clearing Data / Cache Upon Opening Browser

May 30, 2014

Is there a way to clear all data, cache... upon opening a browser. I have ccleaner which removes all data so I need to find a way of executing a clean when i press my browser button.

Why I want to do this as i watch alot of catch up and live tv & in my experience it works smoothly if you clear data, cache... before you start the streaming.

I have 2 browsers on my pc. chrome which i only use for non streaming purposes and opera which I use only for video streaming.

Can Control Cache On Start Menu Search

Sep 18, 2013

Make a new file. c:empdork.txt

Add the single word "ishkabibble" and close the file.

Winkey-F, "dork", enter.

No worky. However, after some period of time, the file will be included in the search results. Or at least I'm pretty sure a file started to come up after a few days.

Now, If one were to have made the same new file in My Documents, insta-worky. That directory is included/indexed/cashed/whatever it's called.

Q: Can I add additional working directories I use often (c: emp, c:music, etc.) such that all nested files within will be included in the Winkey-F search results - instantly (or otherwise.)

Perhaps a "path" type environmental variable exists for search - I would imagine.

("Otherwise" - as in perhaps manually refreshing the cache before a search - which is lame, but serves the purpose.)

[I'm thinking Winkey-F isn't the tool.] Is there a grep type function or tool - that is absolutely categorically going to look at an entire drive for a file, regardless of system, hidden, whatever?

What about text search within a file? Using "ishkabibble" how do I find that file we made?

Thumbnail Pictures Deleted - How To Restore

Jan 29, 2014

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

.I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message

Recent Places And Jump Lists Resetting?

Dec 23, 2013

Recently, when right clicking on the explorer icon in my task bar I noticed that all of my pinned folders and recent places had disappeared. I looked in my recent places folder and found that that was empty.

I also realized that other programs had lost their extra jump list options, for example Skype, which when right clicked should give the option to quit Skype, but instead only had the basic 'close window' and 'unpin' options.
The Skype jump list reappears once I restart Skype, however the explorer jump list is still missing when I restart my PC or explorer.exe

I have tried deleting the files in C:Users\%USER%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsRecentAutomaticDestinations.
Then when I restart explorer.exe and pin things to my explorer task bar icon, everything is fine...

Until a little while later (for reasons I cannot explain) the jump lists disappear, even though their files in AutomaticDestinations still exist!

Maintenance :: Increase File History Cache Size Beyond 20%?

Feb 26, 2013

I thought the Win 8 File History backup feature looked like a good idea so I bought a 1TB external hard drive to use solely for backup. I was thinking that I would be able to store a massive history of backups on it but I can only set the size of the offline cache to a maximum of 20%. Why is it limited to such a small amount of space? Why not 80% or 100%? Is there a registry setting to increase this?

It seems to be a strange arbitrary thing to set it to such a small amount of space if you want to use a drive dedicated for the purpose.

Browsers/Mail :: Why Don't Browser Back Buttons Use The Cache

Oct 29, 2013

I don't get it. I'm on a page. I click a link. I only stay on the new page for maybe 5 seconds. I click the Back Button. I get "connecting" like the word will change in 5 seconds? There's like zero efficiency. I think there should be a setting.

I'm currently on Waterfox 24.0. Pretty nice browser. But it's bizarre that something built for speed makes you wait on every Back Button press.

Setup Installation :: How To Set Up SSD Cache On ASUS VivoBook S551LB

Jan 24, 2014

I just bought an ASUS VivoBook S551LB laptop which comes with Windows 8. It has a 1TB harddrive and an extra 24GB SSD which is used for cache i guess. I wanted to reinstall Windows 8 because I didn't want to use the OEM version. Doing that took enough work. But after reinstalling i decided to check if the cache drive was still working. The Disk Management interface showed that the SSD was empty when previously it was completely full, so I guessed that the cache needed to be set up again.

I installed everything from my laptop's driver page and ran windows update until there were no more updates left. I looked in every ASUS and Intel application installed on the computer for options regarding the cache drive but there was nothing. The Condusiv ExpressCache program had no gui and the command line didn't work, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology program wasn't showing most of the options which other people have.

I read lots of threads and everything seemed to point to the need for RAID. I tried the registry edits, BIOS options (and with safe boot), and looking for RAID drivers for my laptop. The BIOS only has the option for AHCI, and there are no RAID drivers that I can find for my laptop. I installed different versions of the IRST program, tried deleting the SSD volume, formatting it, etc. The fixes people talk about in other threads don't work for me because my programs, BIOS, etc seem to be missing options. Is RAID my problem?

Here are some pictures of my OS:

Installed programs:
Intel Rapid Storage Technology:

Just rechecked BIOS settings for the 20th time and the only SATA configuration option is AHCI, and there are no extra options in the BIOS regarding either of the Intel IRSTs

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews Not Appearing - Tooltip Instead

Apr 30, 2014

Every since I updated my 8.1 to update 1 I have this annoying bug, the taskbar miniatures stop appearing and instead i have this annoying tooltip with whatever program's name I hovered last, that insists in staying above all other windows:

The only way to fix it is rebooting my computer, but it just comes back after a while.

I haven't found any link to any open program, any way I can debug this to find out why this is happening? I'm close to formatting the computer because of this annoyance.
