Cannot View Shared Files On Network

I have a home wireless network with three nodes, a desktop named desktop hard wired to a wireless router, a wireless notebook named pc-user, and a network printer, also hard wired to the router, that works with both computers. The desktop runs windows 2000 professional while the notebook runs windows 7 home premium. Appropriate folders on both computers are set for sharing. Neither of the users on the desktop, administrator or me by name, require passwords. The desktop can see and use shared files on the notebook.

The notebook shows the desktop as a node on the network but when i click on the desktop icon on the notebook network window to open a desktop folder i get a pop up window that says, "pc-user my name, a block to type in a password and an error message that says logon failure. " No amount of fiddling, creating passwords on the desktop and then using them on the notebook when trying to get into the desktop will work. I keep getting the logon failure message.

Cannot View Folders And Programs

Ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it.

The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc. I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?

File Folders - Unable To View Content

Unfortunately i have vista/windows 7. I need the return of the xp-type flat folder  so i can see what is in the folders. I work through machine embroidery software called embird and really need to be able to quickly and efficiently choose a design as i could in xp, no trouble at all. Everyone in our machine embroidery group who thought they were upgrading when they bought  vista/windows 7 are so very disappointed and disgusted with the waste of time, money and effort in doing so.

The rest are hanging on to their old xp's like grim death. Why can't microsoft issue a patch to rectify this now obvious retrograde step (as evidenced by all the complaints on the forums. Don't they care that they have created a "dud" and by refusing to acknowledge their error are "doing the wrong thing" by their customers.come on microsoft - lift your act, rectify problems when you obviously know about them. Believe me, this problem is affecting your sales.

Unable To Access Shared Folders On Drive Connected Via Usb

I recently set up a home network using the new linksys e3000 router, which provides a usb port for drive sharing, backup, and media streaming. I'm getting a message that says the folder access is denied, and i should contact the administrator for access. Fter spending several hours with linksys support, i was unable to solve the initial problem, which is to get full control over the files and folders on this drive. We did the following without success:remapped the drive. Made sure i was logged in as administrator.

Made sure the workgroup name was consistent. Ttempted to assign full control with permissions. This was particularly strange. When i set permissions to full control for any group or user, after clicking apply windows would attempt to set new permissions, but then the folder would go right back to having limited permissions. I was unable to edit. I'm assuming this is where the problem is. Ny idea why i can't change the permissions on these network folders?

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

Can't View Flash

Ok, i have a problem. I've just downloaded ie8, thinking it would help, but the problem occurred in both ie7 & ie8. Ok, so on some sites i visit, flash files won't load. . Swf file extensions mainly. Some sites (like virtual worlds) work. But flash files, and embedded flash files don't. Here's an example.

This link won't show, it shows as a box with an 'x' in it (like a missing picture): www.Gardenpartyworld.com

This link, however, works, it's the actual flash of a virtual world: www.Gardenpartyworld.com/game

I cannot figure out how to make normal flash files visible in ie8, any response is appreciated.

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.

File Organization In List View

I just bought a new computer which has windows 7- i've used xp for the last 8 years on various computers, and there are many things which are extremely jarring. I've managed to figure out, tolerate, or get rid of most of the problematic areas, but i really can't figure this one out.

When i put folders into list view (my default since windows 95), all the files in folders are listing left-to-right (for example, amy.doc, amy2.doc, and boy.doc are all on the top of the file listing, and then the next line starts with boy2.doc, curmudgeon.doc, etc. ). Ever since windows 95, they've listed up-to-down (amy.doc, then amy2.doc directly below that). Sorry if that's confusing- i'm stuck on an old laptop with no imaging or ftp programs, so i can't provide any screen-shots of what i mean.

I can't stand this new way, i can't find anything because of it, and if there is a way to change it to the old way, i would very much love if someone could tell me how.

Unable To View Online Video

Embedded windows media player i am trying to view a movie embedded on a webpage. I know the server is working, as i can view the movie on another computer using the same network connection i am using now. The video continues to say "connecting to media", then finally says "ready" but doesn't play the movie. The error says that it encountered an error while attempting to play the file. If i go to web help i get this error message windows media player c00d11b1 my sound device is not having an issue, so i don't see why that would be the problem. Has anyone encountered this issue or have any idea of a way to fix it?

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

My Documents Renamed View Libraries

This is a windows 7 question -ok - this is a little complicated. I have a windows 2003 server in a domain environment. This server houses my users public directories. So under my "users" directory - bob smith has a "bsmith" directory and jane doe has a "jdoe" directory and so on. My users local "my documents" folders are mapped to their respective directory on the server. So if they click on their my documents folder - they are actually looking at their folder on the server. All of my users have a folder with their name and everyone can see and modify each others files.

(This is by design) now that i am bringing some windows 7 machines online - those folders are being renamed to "my documents". They aren't actually renamed - its just a view. Only my windows 7 users folders are being renamed and only my windows 7 users see the renamed folders as "my documents" so now - if i have 10 windows 7 users - and i go to my "users" directory on the server. I would normally see a folder for each person.

But now i see 10 folders that say "my documents" and the non windows 7 users still have their names listed normally. So i now have no idea which of these 10 my document folders is bob smiths. This only looks this way on a windows 7 machines. If i look in the "users" directory from an xp machine - they look normal. So this tells me this is some sort of windows 7 "view" or library. I need to turn this view off. Any ideas?

How To Enable Aero View In Win 7?

Yesterday, i tried to install lepord transformation on my windows 7 laptop. Which i was able to install correctly but after restarting my computer i couldn't open my computer window. So, i uninstalled the lepord transformation software. But since then my taskbar, and computer view has changed to old style ( looks like windows 2000). Not like windows 7 anymore. Even when i am changing the themes its not getting changed to windows 7 view. I just found out after exploring all the help options the aero view is disabled but its not giving me any option to enable it. Please help me to get  my windows 7 view back.

Unable To View Images On Some Websites

I recently received a laptop with windows 7 for christmas. Please bear with me as i am pretty much computer illiterate! My problem is that when i go to certain websites i am unable to see images on those sites (including my own business websites well as by images i don't mean photos that have been uploaded but rather certain graphics etc. Which are part of the website. I have no problem with these websites on my desk top (windows xp) but only on the laptop with 7. I am sure its just something simple that i have turned on or off, but i really cannot figure it out!

Ie Auto Switching To Compatibility View

I am developing a web page but when clicking a certain link, it causes the following message to appear:- "a problem displaying [address] caused internet explorer to refresh the webpage using compatibility view". The page renders fine in every other browser i have tried (firefox, google chrome, safari, opera), it is only ie that causes this message. The page still renders fine, but i want to stop the message coming up.

I have identified the code that is causing this to happen
 
.


If i remove the overflow:scroll bit of the code it stops the problem, but this breaks my site since the part of the page no longer has scrollbars even when the size of the contents means they are needed - so users cannot see some of the page.could you please confirm if this is a known issue with ie and if there is a workaround?

Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8

After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

View / Add Printers To Client Pc

We have a windows 2003 domain and a mix of windows xp and windows 7 pcs. I am using a windows 7 pc. I can view a remote machines simply by typingcomputername just fine. With xp machines i can view they're locally installed printers and make changes to them. On windows 7 clients, i cannot. I get "you do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". I cannot view the printers on any machine nor can i add a printer to any machines.

Once again. Everything works fine on windows xp clients. How can i correct this? I turned on network discovery and file and print sharing. It didn't seem to make any difference. Even when clicking on the 'view remote printers' of any windows 7 client pc, it shows 0 items even though there are 5 printers installed locally. I am a domain admin with local admin rights on all pcs. What is going on?

How To Format Digital Photo View?

I need to format disk f, and i can't figure out how. I put in my digital photo viewer into my windows 7 computer (toshiba, satellite: l305d-s5974), it says i need to format the disk in drive f, and before that it said i need to format the disk in drive e. It changed when i put in my flash drive (staples flash drive: 4 gigabites). When i do try to format it, it says that windows was unable to complete the format (it said that too when it said i need to format the disk in drive e). I have searched all over the internet and i cannot find a single solution, even on microsoft's website. Please let me know when you have a solution as soon as possible.

Cannot Get Xp Mode To Shared Printer

I have a dell precision 390 with 4 gig of memory. The printer is an hp 2300d, which is connected to the computer by usb. I am running windows 7 ultimate. I have set up the printer driver in xp mode as described in the "windows virtual pc evaluation guide". However, i cannot get the printer to work in both native windows 7 and xp mode at the same time.

In order to get the printer to work in xp mode, i have to "attach" it. When i do that, it no longer functions under the naive windows 7, until i release it from xp mode.

How To Use A Shared Xp Printer, On Win 7?

I print on cd's to a coworkers windows xp sp3 machine using epsons print cd. I recently installed a larger hd, more memory, and win 7 ultra 64 bit n. I turned off the firewall on my win 7 machine (temporarily) which allowed me to 'add a printer' via ip. Addr/sharename. I get prompted for the user-name password, which i enter with no problems. Next win 7 searches for the printer driver. Since the xp machine isn't going to have the win 7 64 bit driver, it fails, checks win update, and eventually asks me to provide the *. Inf file. I haven't the slightest idea which inf file it would like to see.

Shared Calendars In Ms Outlook

I am looking for a way to automatically populate a ms outlook shared calendar with only appointments from ms outlook personal calendars that have been classed as "out of the office" appointments.

We would use this in a group of 15 users, all of which use a ms outlook personal calendar, but do not want to share all personal calendar appointments with the group. Our goal is to only share out-of office appointments on one calendar without everyone making entries on two calendars.

Who Is Accessing Shared Files?

I run windows 7 ultimate 64-bit on a laptop that commutes with me between home and my office at university. When i am at school, my machine is assigned a global ip address, so i have the network set to "public". Today when i was exploring control panel, i noticed that "sharing" was turned on the "users" folder. When i went to disable sharing, i was informed that a user was accessing a file and would loose data if i disabled sharing. This concerns me because my data should not have been publicly accessible in such a manner. I need to determine who was accessing my files remotely, and more importantly what was accessed. Additionally, why was "users" shared in the first place on a public network?

Shared Folder Has No Share Name

(1) when a folder is shared using the new "share with" command, it does not have the hand holding folder icon to indicate the folder is being shared, like in xp. Is there a way to enable this?

(2) let's say my pc name is win7pc and the folder i want to share is photo folder on the desktop. In winxp when you share a folder you provide a share name that other people can see in their network neighborhood. But in win7, there is no provision to name the share when using the "share with". So when other people want to use this shared folder, they have to start with win7pcusers and then navigate through the various folders until they reach the photo folder on my desktop.

And when i look at available shares on my pc, it just shows a users folder, which makes me wonder which folder i really am sharing.

Is there a name for this nameless share feature and is it supposed to be better in some way than the named shared that i'm used to in winxp? So far it seems like a less friendly way to share folder.

Aero View - Outlook 2007 & Other Programs

Update: these actually appears to happen when i have any program running, but it is not happening all the time. I noticed that when i have outlook 2007 (all office updates) running, when i move my cursor to "aero view" my open ie & tabs, they momentarily show but if i'm not fast enough i can select the ie/tab i want. The problem does not occur when outlook 2007 is not running.

The other problem i noted with aero view, is that when i 'right-click' on the ie icon (whether i have other programs running or not), the options momentarily appear but disappear to quickly to allow selection of an item in that menu.
