I deleted my Content.IES folder a long time ago (like a year ago) and I can't get it back. Will somebody please tell me how to get it back cause without it I can't use Java stuff. Please don't tell me I have to reformat cause I can't do that. I have no disks to do so. I tried going to Temporary Internet Files and creating a folder but it wont let me, nor will it let me move a folder in it.
I'm not sure exactly what brought this on since this is a nearly fresh install of windows, but I have had a problem accessing any web content with internet explorer except for the web itself (thanks to firefox). This means, Help files, Windows update, web forms, and many other features are completely unusable. Whenever I acess any kind of content through IE or it's engine embedded in windows, instead of displaying the HTML I am prompted to download it (open/save dialogged) this is a serious problem and I dont want to re-install windows yet again but it looks like I might have to if things keep going this way.. any help? I havnt been able to find a single mention of this problem on google
I have a report regarding a couple of high risk temporary internet files that are supposedly located inside certain content.ie5 folders, but those particular folders aren't showing up in any of the user profiles of this system.How do I locate them? I've done a normal search for folders named content.ie5 with 8 folders showing up, but none show the number-letter folders listed on the report. I've done a search in the XP registry and even the content.ie5 folders don't appear anywhere. Tried doing a search on just the number-letter subfolders mentioned and still nothing.I have all files and folders not hidden, including subfolders, but obviously XP ignores that direction with regard to these 'history' or 'temp int files' folders.The report came from SpyDoctor on a trial run prior to purchasing the program, so it can't remove them without purchase/registration. I've been able to remove all others listed in the report manually but not these entries because I can't locate them anywhere. If they don't show up anywhere, how does spydoctor find them?
Somehow or other, I've lost the ability to show web content on my xp pro desktop. In particular, I'd like to show some photos, but the desktop->properties->desktop->custom->web list has no effect at all.
I installed active content from the web a few days ago and can't figure out how to delete it. It was a countdown I got off a website and put on my desktop. I've tried everything I can think of to get it off my desktop, but it won't move.
I have a problem with a virus/trojan in the folder Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5 and Norton cannot remove it. When I go to symantec removal instructions it explains that I should to a scan in safe mode, I do it, but Norton does not find anything
I am trying to figure out how to add changing content to my background. I decided to use the Web option in the customize desktop area of the display settings. I made two test attempts trying different things out to see if it would do what I wanted. I had no trouble and so I went ahead and made my image. Now when I went to add the actual image in it let me, but wouldn't save the changes after I logged off. It works fine while I am still logged in, but as soon as I log off my changes are gone. So I thought that maybe there was a limit on how many items I could have in the list at any given time. I had no need for my test objects, so I deleted them from the display control panel. Now for the surprise - Those changes don't save either. After I log off the test objects are restored. I now thought that maybe it was some kind of safety feature so you don't remove it by mistake. I went through and found where the registry keys for it were located and deleted all of them. This only effected my current session - After I logged off, the test ones are put back and my actual one is removed, from both the control panel and the registry.
I was using Excel and tried to access the help screen, a gray window opened with no content. I had the Office XP installation disk "repair" the installation. there was no change. I tried MSWord. Help screen was same as in Excel - blank. I then tried to access Help and Support Center from the Start Menu. It would not open. I solved the probem by running the restore tool from the System Tools folder and setting the machine back to a time 1 week earlier, but I have no idea what would cause this issue. My machine uses ZoneAlarm Pro, Norton Anti-Virus, Sunbelt CounterSpy and is behind a router so I don't think it was the result of a malicious program.
Basically, the links on the left side of Explorer when viewing folders that are content-specific (ie. music folder, pictures folder) don't work at all. For example, in the My Music folder, clicking on "Play All" doesn't work (the cursor goes to an hourglass for a few seconds but WMP doesn't pop up or anything) and it behaves the same for every link on the left side.
i have a problem with windows whenever i try to search a folder. i type in what i'm looking for but when i hit enter the page shows the standard "page cannot be found". at the top it says that interent explorer has restricted content that could access my computer. this is obviously a load of crap because all i'm trying to do is use the search function. it's not just when i try to search that it happens, it also happens when i try to get to "my network places" using the locations found at the side of the screen when i'm in my computer.
I have a phone directory from our local phone company installed on my LAN at home. When I try to access the directory from the client pc's, I keep the message: "IE has restricted....from showing active content". How can this be changed so each client can access the directory without this warning coming up?
I am running Trillian pro 3.1 and I am having a problem when the program goes to open my Hotmail account. Since I installed SP2 IE pops up a message that says "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..." The solution to this problem is supposed to be to mark the check box in Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Security " Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" The problem I have is that this for some reason doesn't fix my problem. I still get the message poping up saying "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer.
I would like to be able to right click, and when I select new, have a submenu under the new that I could put my custom files for. I actually have used a program (Tweak UI) that allows me to to remove or add new files, but the problem I find is this.
I to a lot of HTML coding and create new files often. As much as I like conforming to strict, I have to use traditional from time to time, and I wanted to add for both. Well, when I used Tweak UI to add my strict template, and then checked out my "New ->" it was labeled as "New Firefox Document", which from reg searching I show is exactly what HTML is associated to. I wondered if there was a program, or a hack for my registry that would allow me to have a new file under the context menu that would otherwise not alter what .HTML was associated to (meaning, show "New Strict" and "New Traditional" but when you check the properties of index.html would show "Type of File: Firefox Document").
My guess is that to really pull this off, that I would have to make two new extentions (like .ext1 and .ext2) and when I make the new file, simply rename the extension. I know how to do that, but I was hoping that there was another way around it. Also, as noted above, how does one make a submenu under new to group things in? Such as
New -> Folder New -> Shortcut ----------------------- New -> text document New -> Media -> file New -> Media -> another New -> Programing -> whatever
1) I am unable to record data (mostly JPEGs) to a CD-R using WinXP Pro and my sony dru500ax DVD/CD recorder. I have in the past been able to do this with no problem using either the built in windows functionality nor Nero. Now I am unable to use either method and I don't know what has changed. Both methods get partially through the write process and fail (but nothing ends up being written on the CD). 2) I am unable to read CDs that were burned by my father on his computer. The disks clearly have stuff on them and I've been able to get to the content on other machines (at work, at friends, WinXP, Win2K3, etc) But when I put them in my drive and open the drive in explorer it shows that nothing is written on the CD
I have an old Intel mp3 player. Intel's website stopped supporting it a long time ago but they do still suppply the XP driver. I couldn;t install the driver from Device Manager and went to the driver file itself. The computer produces a warning that "this file contains Active Content" and the computer won;t let the file open. I'n trying to open it from a folder, not from the website so this isn;t an IE warning, except it kind of is. It looks the same, it brought up the Intel website (I may have had it open) and the yellow security warning appeared. That has options to open it, I think. The software on disc was associated with MusicMatch Jukebox.I had to install MusicMatch software before I could install the Intel player software.
I have created a folder, and inside this folder are a number of sub folders, each containing various text files, images, etc etc. I would like each sub folders content to be arranged in the same way. So have used VIEW/ARRANGE_ICONS_BY/TYPE/SHOW_IN_GROUPS
This setting places all .JPG, BMP, GIF, TEXT etc. in groups, and looks quite well ordered and neat. Probably not everybody's first choice, but it works for me. However, to achieve this layout I have to visit every single folder and it's sub folders individually, in order to make the necessary adjustments, and so that they all view in the same way. This can, and does, take hours. Is there any way that I can specify how I would like the contents of all sub folders within a main folder to be set up, without having to make the adjustments for each one over and over again? What's more, I have an external HDD connected to my P.C as additional storage, and when I transfer any folders to this external drive, whilst the contents remain intact, the settings for how each folder should view appear lost. So, back I come to the same old layout issue again.
I need to free up some disk space on my laptop hard drive (Casio Laptop, Win XP, Office 2000, Pentium 4, 133 MHZ, 20gig HHD). c:/temp folder has about 6GB of file in it. Is it safe to delete files in the c:/temp folder and is there any way I can automate the deletion of files from this folder once a month or something?
I must have done something because I turned on my gateway computer, logged in and the page with icons of software and folders (with start button in lower left corner) (whatever this screen is called) is turned around totally or tilted. In other words the page tilted to the right and the start button is now in the lower right corner. I don't know how to fix this. I have to turn my head to read text on the screen now.
Content of directory "Downloaded Program files" is invisible. How can I do it visible? I checked that in Folder options "Show hidden files..." is selected and " Display the content of system folders" also is checked.
I have always had the setting "Show Window Contents While Dragging" option set on my computer, and it has always worked fine. However, starting roughly a month or so ago, the option refuses to stick. Almost every time I boot up my computer, I will have to set the option again for the day.I am running Windows XP Home Edition, on an HP computer.
On both my desktop and my laptop running WindowsXP SP2 I use a simple, homemade start page with links to sites I visit almost daily. Frequently, when I open this page, I will get this message on my desktop but not my laptop:"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer."Clicking for options, I get:"Are you sure you want to let this file run active content?"This is ridiculous, as there is no such "active content" on the page. Obviously, it has something to do with IE security settings.
I did an AVG Rootkit scan which turned up "c:windows/system32/userinit.exe" as a dodgy file. I removed it and now the machine won't login when I boot the system. With a bit more digging it seems that this file was actually the login information within the registry and as it can't find a valid user/password it just keeps asking me click the user name and login. When I click it just loops back and throws back up the window, asking me to click the user name again.How I can access the registry and reset the userinit.exe file?I've tried selecting "last good configuration" which didn't work.I also tried to download Bart PE on another machine (running Vista) to set up a boot CD, but it wasn't particularly clear how to go about it, so I tried using the XP System Recovery app on the install disks. This got me into a C: prompt.
I bought my Dell 4700 about 6 months ago and was just going through the discs that came with it. I remembered that the Dell did not come with a Windows XP install disc in case I need to re-format. Is this normal? There is an option under Start....Accessories....System Tools to create OS backup disc. Is that what I need to make a disc or should it have came with one?
Are you guys having the same problem? Using IE7, when viewing a thread, if I hit the back arrow to go back to the page I was previously viewing, it doesn't move at all. It started acting weird a couple of days ago when it took sometimes two hits on the back arrow to go back. Now it doesn't go back to the previous page at all.
I am trying to back up my docs and system when I do on either the wizard or the advanced mode-it still tells me "the back up file name could not be used: "Eackup.bkf" " please ensure that it is a valid path and the you have sufficent access."
I'm running XP Pro on a HP laptop right now and it's decent but I was looking for an OS with less bloat and one that left a smaller memory footprint. Win2k seems like the best way to go. I basically use it for browsing, watching movies, music, email and maybe the odd old game of AoC or something like that. I also use it for wireless but that shouldn't be an issue because the client I use supports 2k.What kind of features would I be missing from going backwards?
I purchased norton ghost 2003 and an external hard drive to back up the whole of my c drive and recently my system crashed due to a faulty graphics card and memory stick and although the repairer recovered the files and i reinstalled my programmes but back up files are not working. I reloaded norton ghost 2003 and tried to run the programme but get a complicated error message and quite frankly find the symantec support very difficult to negotiate.
