Folder Setting Not Saving


I noticed that folder settings are not being saved after i restart the pc. There are two scenarios.
1. After i installed winamp media player, all audio files default to that program. I will open an mp3 file with windows media player and tell it to always open with this program. It then opens all mp3 files with wmp instead of winamp, but as soon as i restart it goes back.

2. I have an mp3 player which i connect to the pc and device stage opens it up and says that there is a new update for the player. I hit update and the interface changes. This stays like that until i restart the pc. Once i restart it, the interface goes back to the old one and it tells me there is a new update.
 
Windows 7 x64 with latest updates and patches installed.

Cannot Access Documents And Setting Folder

I recently installed windows 7 rc as a dual boot with xp. Unfortunately, in windows 7, not only can i not access my documents and setting folder (win7 partition), but nothing through the 'user' folder, either. I created a new account, and had the same trouble. I've tried changing permissions through the tabs and dialogs, including in safe mode, and just as it seems it's getting ready to write the new permissions, it pops up yet another 'access denied' dialog. I've gone through windows update and all is up to date.

Should i be concerned, or is this a 'windows 7 rc' quirk?  How will it affect applications i might want to install to "try out"?

Setting Wireless Router Security Setting Have Changed

I have two selections possible. 'set up a new connection or network' wizard, or 'connect to a network' (manually) in windows 7. I know how to install hardware but my problem is, the security setting have been changed, and these changes i am trying to make in the configuration are not possible. The different permutations on offer do not provide the correct selection for me. e.g. I want to key in wpa + wpa2 i can only have one of them. Authentication and data encryption have same problem. You cannot key in the info manually.

Saving Files

I am having trouble with window 7, saving files and other programs, i have to upgrade 3 other programs that i mostly use.

Saving A Theme

At time i want to change properties of an existing thme and overwrite the original. Well, when i click "save theme" and type in the same name as an existing theme i end up with 2 themes with the same name. I would assume windows would ask me if i wanted to replace the other theme. I am then forced to delete the original hoping i'm deleting the proper one. Is this normal? What are some guidelines as to saving themes? I change elements of themes frequently. I don't want to save different themes and end up have hundreds of themes on my system.

Saving An Image..?

I have a problem on saving images from a webpage. Yes, i did right-click on an image and click "save image as. " And a window popped out asking where should i save the picture. But every time i save it on my picture folder, it says "there are no more files. " I tried to save it on my music folder and the same thing happened. So i decided to save it on my desktop, but then a small window popped out and said "the file is not valid. "
I used to think that my picture folder didn't have enough space, but it didn't make sense, because when i copied pictures from my friend's pendrive to my picture folder, it worked. And i also thought that it's the web program that has problems (i was using firefox) but that seemed impossible, too, because this problem also occurred when i used internet explorer.
This had never happened before. This problem just recently occurred about a few days ago.
Help me please!

Folder Access Denied - Cant Delete Folder

Folder access denied

You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder

Continue skip cancel

- I click continue and i get:

Folder access denied

You require permission from laptop/chris to make changes to this folder

Try again cancel

- I am laptopchris! (My username is chris on the login screen so i presume i am laptop/chris). Do i have to have permission to do something on my own computer? It's my computer! Im a newbie when it comes to windows 7. Windows 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, xp im more advanced in, with vista im slightly there.

I have tried numerous attempts at the silly take ownership thing but it seems to have failed. The message i get up when applying the new settings is:

Error applying security information to :

C:users.

Access is denied

This is rather frustrating - am i doing something wrong? Would someone please provide simple, easy to follow, accurate steps to take ownership and provide me with a solution or better, a fix, if this doesn't work?

Ie Problem With File Saving

When i am on the internet, specifically ancestry.com and other such sites, i try to save files to my computer. I try to have them saved to my desktop or documents folder, but they keep getting saved to some temporary folder that i can never find! It is so irritating! When i try to do a search in the start menu, my files never show up, nor does the temporary internet file folder, which i have looked for in all the places they say to look.

What can i do so my computer stops trying to "protect" me by hiding my files? And where do i go to find the ones that are already there?

Saving Images From Internet

I have accessed a family history website and attempted to save a copy of a certificate. The website gives you the option to save the image online and/or save to your computer. In the past i have chosen to save to my computer and navigated to the relevant folder on my computer, given the file a name and hit the save button. Done! This was using windows xp. I could then view/print the file at any time. It was where i expected it to be in the folder i had created for that purpose.

Now i am told i do not have permission to save to my selected folder on c drive. "Would i like to save to my pictures?" Eventually i relented and said yes.

Result, i can only see the picture when i save another image to the folder. In the save window.

The folder says it is empty when i attempt to view the image through the explorer window. It appears i can only see folders not files in the libraries view. I attempted to create a new folder in the my pictures folder so i could organize the images but i can't see files in there either.

How can i fix the problem?

Saving Of Favorites Problem

In win 7-64, ie8, everytime i save a favorite, it saves two lines to the folder. One entry is the name i gave it. That entry will not open the site. The second entry is the complete link  it does open the site. For example:

Saved the following with the name i gave it:
Kitchen cabinet finishing

The second line, never adjacent to the first saved line was:
Kitchen-cabinets-and-hardware.com-kitchen-cabinet-finishing.html

The entry of the name i gave it is useless.

How can i solve this problem?

Saving Passwords And Login Id

I have a brand new laptop with w7 home/pr pre-installed. Auto-update is working so it's up to date. I use a zyxel wireless-n router which is functioning fine with all my xp laptops and my w7. Also attached to the network are a wd nas as well as various print-server connected printers. My security software is zone alarm extreme (up-to-date).

The password issue:
(1)  the w7 laptop logs on fine when i startup in windows and to the network. But when i open explorer and click on the nas, i always have to enter the logon-id even though i tell it to save it.

(2)  passwords are not saved with outlook 2003. I've applied every method in kb 290684 and 829918, including the registry stuff. To no avail.

(3)  windows live mail - same problem - causing failures.

(4)  ie 8 - will not accept a modified default search engine setting . . . Related? So now i use firefox but i need ie since some foreign sites do not accept firefox (even in ie mode). There are no problems with accessing internet sites which require logon and passwords. Since the laptop is new i have not tried local applications with password settings. However, until the email is resolved, the w7 laptop cannot become the primary laptop.

I'm sending this from an xp since i cannot logon with a w/live logon on the w7 laptop. Any suggestions on how to fix this "save password" problem are appreciated.

Setting Up Raid 1

A question for setting up raid 1 ( i have never attempted raid before). I understand that raid 1 can be set up through windows 7. I have one 1tb drive with windows 7 pro, 64-bit and one blank 1tb drive, which i would like to use to mirror the other drive. I know that when using hardware raid that you must set it up before loading the os. I already have many programs, etc. On my main drive and was hoping it wasn't too late to use the blank drive as a mirror. If so, are there some simple instructions to follow?

Saving To Network Drive From Ie8

A client system (xp sp3, novell network, non-admin account) here is having issues saving documents from within ie8 to her assigned network drive. (I know more technical details for the network/setup may be warranted but for now i'm hoping someone has seen this or knows a fix based on this basic info).

None of her mapped network drives show up as possible save locations from within the ie8 "save as" dialogue. Her drives are  working fine otherwise; she can read, write, delete, etc. To them from windows explorer and other programs. There doesn't seem to be any further permission issues or drive mapping issues.

In this particular case, the file she wants saved is a pdf. Adobe acrobat is installed and works fine otherwise for viewing, saving pdf docs. The scholastic program she uses insists on launching the pdf from within ie8 when it generates reports for print/view.

Here's what else i know so far: when adobe is launched independently of ie, all of the network drives are available to save to. No issues here. This saving issue applies to all file types, not just pdfs (i tested with an mp3 file too). The pdf issue is just here at the forefront because of its tie-in with ie and the scholastic program that forces ie to handle the pdf.

Is seems to be an issue specific to this user's account permissions and ie8 only. - I installed firefox for testing purposes and from there i can save pdf and mp3 files to all network shares.
There are no settings within the scholastic software to tell it not to launch ie for it's pdf export feature. Even with firefox installed and set as default browser, it spawns an ie window. (Seriously, why would someone program that way?)

I have tried setting the url for the generated pdf to the "intranet zone" type in the security settings of ie. No change. I have confirmed that, as the domain admin, i can saved to these locations from within ie, again: the issue seems account and ie specific.

Clearly there are some work-arounds, but i'm looking for a solution and maybe a explanation to this behavior. A group policy issue? An ie issue? Both?

Setting Up File Sharing

Two desktops both running windows 7 home premium. Got it set up once and it worked great. Then due to problems on pc 2 i did a clean install of windows 7 home premium. The files that i am trying to share reside on pc1. I have the homegroup set up on it and set several files to share and then selected read/write for those files. Printed out the key and went to pc2 to set it up.

Did as instructed on control panel but there is no network and internet but went into network. Thats when it gets crazy as it seems that in trying to join now and put in the password from pc1 it prints out its own password on the screen and says that there are no members in the homegroup.could someone help or point me to a document to read and use?

Losing Setting On Reboot

I have been getting windows 7 all installed and set up over the last few days. Did a clean install on a box that had xp. At some point today, windows 7 started losing a lot of my personal setting on every reboot. I have no idea if i flipped a setting that would do this or if something is scrooged. Examples of what is lost are my settings in ie and firefox (i use both browser as required by my job). The customization of the tool bars and which ones are displayed are all reset to defaults for both browsers on reboot. Also i lose all of my saved id/password for various web sites. I am not sure what all else is being lost, but do any of you have an idea of what might cause this?

How Do I Stop Ie8 Saving Login Information?

Ie8 apparently automatically saves login details for saved sites without prompting the user if this is desired. The login details are saved and will be used if the original url is visited again so long as a t least one broswer windo has been open since the last visit.

For example
I log on to etrade www.Etrade.com and sign is with my userid

And password. I then open a second browser window www.Msn.com after checking account details on the etrade window i close it leaving the msn window still open. If i start the etrade url again, even a few days later, i am not prompted for login info just directed straight into account status. This will happen as long as i have at least one browser window open.

As soon as i close all the browser windows the cache is apparently cleared as i am prompted for user id and password if i open the url again. If i log out of the site before closing the account window the cache is apparently flushed for that url, however most people, myself included, would believe that just closing the window is the equivalent of logging off.

Duplicate Photo Images Auto Saving

When saving photos into the my pictures library everything seems fine, then as soon as i view one of the jpeg images (with a number) it then creates 2 duplicate images - these are then identified as vcm_s_kf_m followed by numbers adn presume size of image. I do not want these duplicates, i don't know why they are created or what purpose they serve. Can someone explain what they are and how do i stop them occurring. When i go into my own personal file and locate pictures there are no duplicates there!?

Saving Offline Files To A Seperate Partition

When i installed win7 on my vaio i created a separate partition for my data (d:) & reserved the smaller (40gb) c: partition for system files. When i activate offline files, it quickly fills the c partition as it is storing these offline files in the csc folder.

I followed all the advice i received in the folowing thread:

http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7files/thread/6af0cf60-84f6-4e48-b0a1-2780a5fd7b7a
Without success. Apparently i'm not the only one having this probem. It still tells me that 'access is denied' when trying to delete csc folder.

Saving Display Settings And Monitor Position

I currently am running two nvidia graphics cards with 4 displays. I have an 8800gtx running my primary and my tv in the other room. These two displays are cloned and used strictly as a primary display. I then am running a gt220 with my other two displays as extended desktops. One on the left of the primary and one on the right. I have the displays set up correctly and working in the display settings but when i restart, the extended monitors are not oriented to split the main screen. So i have to go back in to the display settings every time and change their positions. I have the latest nvidia drivers installed.

Once again

Extended - primary / primary - extended
 
(Gt220)      (8800gtx)           (gt220)

I just need a way to save this setup so that i dont have to change it every time i startup or restart. I wouldn't even mind if i could have a script that i could run on startup that would set it to these positions.

Problem Saving Jpeg Files From Internet

I have been trying to save jpeg file (census image from ancestry.com) and it tells me it is saved on my desktop as i want. When i go to the desktop it isn't there, search facility doesn't find it. I go back to the image and try to save again and it tells me it is already on the desktop. I tried setting up a folder to save to but had the same problem, image says it is saved but it doesn't show and can't be found by search.

I can save images as an adobe and have no problems but i don't get the option to choose how it is saved, it is just as jpeg.

Setting Up Hardware Raid Under Win7

Setting up a hardware raid under windows 7, with a separate system disc for system and programs (non raid) and 3 disc hardware raid 5 for data storage. I was running a windows xp pro machine with a hardware raid set to run as raid 5 (a 3 disc raid ) and a separate disc for the system and programs files. I want to recreate this set up using windows 7 pro (64 bit) running on a msi 790gx-g65 mother board. I successfully installed windows 7 on the system disc, without the raid drives being  installed. So i now have windows installed and running ok on my sytem disc.

I than added the 3 raid drives, set the bios to raid and set up the 3 disc hardware raid in the raid setup dialogue. Rebooted the system and first message error massage was 'can't find operating system' rebooted from dvd and started to reinstall window 7. Fter the keyboard screen, windows searches for an operating system but dose not find one. I select repair system add drives (latest raid drivers downloaded from the motherboards website).

Window finds these and seems to installs the drivers. First time i did this it windows did not find any of the drives at all, i repeated the process and it then found the raid and the separate drive but then it would not install on to the separate drive giving an error message saying it was not a correct drive and windows would not could not install on to it. Any idea anyone?

Setting Up Security To Protect Router

I set up a network and installed a router for wireless access to the net. I did not set up the security protection on the router at that time. Am trying to do so now but keep running into road block. I followed the directions  for security set up in the "setting up a wireless network. When i click on the "set up a new network" and click next i get a window that has two (2) messages.

"Choose the wireless router or access point you want to configure" and "it might take up to 90 seconds for unconfirmed devices on your computer to appear". Under the second message is a blank box. Nothing ever appears and the only options i am left with is cancel or next selection is not activated. Can someone help on where to go from here. The router manufacturer has provided ip address and password which i don't know what to do with.
