Previews Problem With Dvd Maker

I made a dvd with windows movie maker and modified it with the options. I did not burn correctly, in fact it made my video choppy and i lost some videos, meaning some of the videos i added did not come out. On the menu format i selected it shows displays of some of the videos i added to my dvd but does not play in the video itself. How can i get the videos that are on the feature menu. I chose the menu style call reflections. On the reflections boxes is where my videos are playing as a preview but not on the dvd i made. How can i get those previews out of there?

Desktop Icons Changed To Excel Icons After Update

"all desktop icons changed to office excel icons after windows update in windows 7". Two of the desktops at my work place installed updates for windows 7 automatically. After restart all desktop icons were office excel icons and were not able to be opened. After a system restore the icons went back to normal and were able to be opened again. I wasn't here for the update and was told of the issue third party. Not sure what update it was but it was a critical update from what i was told.

Program Icons Changed To Unknown Icons

Just recently, my computer's icons for programs such as windows live messenger, microsoft office (all programs and documents for those programs), steam, pdf files, are all changed to unknown icons. Im not sure what i happened and i restored my computer, but after another day or so, it reverted back to the same thing. I believe it might have been due to running disk cleanup and im not sure if i restored to before running disk cleanup. But these missing icons only displaying the unknown icon for all those programs and their files. Can anyone please help me?

Faulty icons: microsoft office and its documents, pdf files, windows live messenger, steam, itunes these are the ones that i see, there could be more for all i know.

Program Icons Have Been Replaced With Generic Icons

While trying to install adobe cs4 on my desktop i kept receiving errors on not being able to write to the c:windowsinstaller file. I had to change folder settings to see system files first then once i found it i could not do anything to it and had only limited rights. I turned off norton and made sure i had administrator rights and even tried to execute the file "run as administrator" with no luck. So i took ownership of the c drive and made sure that the system and myself that full control (probably not the right thing to do but i was out of ideas).

The install finally worked. However, now all of my programs do not have their standard icons (word, excel, quickbooks etc. ), They have generic icons and not all the same type of icon but they are all generic windows icons. All the programs work just fine but i would like to have have the original ones back.

Icons Have Changed To Generic Icons

For some reason after i changed my windows desktop background and then later restarted my pc i noticed that cpu-z, pc wizard, & eleet no longer had 'icon art' to them and they looked like generic icons. They still worked but i was wondering what would cause this and how to fix. Also, another change that i did was to pin shortcuts to these programs in my taskbar. All other programs were fine. For some reason this was highly annoying to me. Any suggestions?

Some Desktop Icons Appear As Broken Icons

I had to reconfigure some connections inside my box, and inadvertently switched the order of my sata drives. In short, windows loaded with my optical and 2nd hdd swapped, so it assigned them letters. All the icons that looked in d: switched to the "broken" icon. I've since switched drive letters and rebooted, multiple times. Right clicking on the icon and selecting properties displays the correct icon under the "shortcut" menu. How can i get that icon to show on the desktop now?

Display Pictures

This pc is built from a components and running genuine (licensed) windows 7 (32bit) home premium. When browsing craig’s list classified ads, this computer would show the attached pictures on any ad, simply be hovering the cursor over the subject line and without opening the text. However, this feature abruptly quit and the pictures (jpeg) would not be displayed without clicking and opening the classified ad. I had assumed this was one of the windows gadgets that had by default been activated when installing windows 7 and then inadvertently turned off. Any suggestions how to turn this feature back on?

Cannot Search Pictures By Tags

I, don't know if this should've been placed pictures & video but i think it's more of a search issue. Here's my problem. I have a lot of images on my computer witch are very well organized but i want to organize them even more with tags. I did some experimenting with this and there is something i don't understand. Some pictures, when i downloaded them from the internet, already had some tags so i searched in that folder for tags:tag_name and the picture was found. Then i only searched for tag_name and again, the same picture was among the results.

I'm not sure i like this very much but i'l get over it. After that i added another tag to that same picture and when i searched for tags:additional_tag_name i found that image again. Ok so far. My problem was when i chose an image without any tags to start with and added some tags to it. It never appeared in the search results. I have absolutely no idea why this picture was different from the ones that worked. All images are jpg and looking at the details, there is no major difference between the ones that are working and the ones that are not.

To a lot of my pictures i added tags from picasa 3 and in the details tab, next to program name it sais picasa 3. Don't know if this is a problem or not, but my issue is the same for pictures that were never modified in picasa or any other program. If you have any ideas?

Pictures Are Missing From Folders

Last night most of my picture folders (251) were empty. The folders and names are visible, but the pictures are gone. There are a few random folders with pics remaining! Where could they be? I've done searches. I've found some indexed but get the message "not authorized to open the folder" - and i'm the administrator, the only one using my computer. I used to be on mic. Security essentials w/my ex-husband but we now live in separate states.

Is it possible for to lose pictures that way if they're being shared remotely? This is not the first time i've had pictures missing in files, but usually just a few here and there.

Program Icons Reverting To "windows Default" Icons

Some of my icons have reverted to the windows default icon, regardless of where they are placed (quicklaunch/startmenu/random folders). I have searched the forums for solutions and found several ideas. They do not disappear after a certain time, they just simply didn't appear one day. The last program/game i installed was alien vs predator. Uninstalled that one without any effect.

Different Colors Appear In Pictures Using Photo Viewer / Ie

Seems like pictures are being color managed properly in windows photo viewer (as well as photoshop and firefox) but not in internet explorer, acdsee (ver. 10), or google chrome. I'm running windows 7 professional 64 bit. Same applications running on my laptop (windows 7 ultimate 32 bit) are exhibiting no such problems. I upgraded to the latest ati video drivers (i have an hd4650) and monitor driver. No luck. The default color management scheme is the same in the laptop and desktop (i left the windows default which is srgb iec61966-2. 1). Any help would be greatly appreciated

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Pictures Not Loading In Live Photo Gallery

I've been using windows photo gallery for years. When i upgraded recently to windows 7, i upgraded to windows live photo gallery and all has been fine until recently - suddenly, when i open it up, there are a ton of my pictures that don't load - they are either solid grey rectangles or the generic "island" icon rectangle. When i double click on them, my picture opens up, but i need to be able to see all my photos in the gallery - does anyone know why this is happening?

Random Peices Of Pictures In Live Gallery

I just transferred back to pc from mac and am using my old ipod video as an external disk to transfer music and photos. All of my photos are now in my new computer, but in the windows live photo gallery, it also displays small random pieces of my photos-for example-part of someone's face or the scene. I have the whole photo also, but i don't understand why little pieces of them are here and there all of the gallery. No clue how they got there or how to get rid of them. Does anyone know how to fix this? Do i just have to go through all of them and delete manually the distorted pieces?

Error - There Isn't Enough Available Memory To Print Your Pictures

Action: print picture; error: there isn't enough available memory to print your pictures; occurs only in photo viewer. Programs you are having problems with: the default windows photo viewererror messages: there isn't enough available memory to print your pictures. Close some open programs, and then try again.

Recent changes you made to your computer: fresh install, also recently added an old hard drive that was close to max capacity (~5 gigs remaining free)what you have already tried to fix the problem: reboot, close all other applications, the event viewer does not show this error?

Hardware:phenom ii x4, 4 gigs of ram currently set to no page filing, primary drive is an ssd at close to max capacity (~5 gigs remaining free), secondary drive (~450 gigs free) is where user profile's sitother thoughts: pictures will print from photoshop cs4 and google picasa.

I know that the windows photo viewer uses system resources but currently have ~2. 5 gigs of ram memory free and like i said a very fresh build. Printer will print pictures from all except one other computer on the network, but that could be a side issue. All other computers are running windows xp.

Two Icons For My Printer

I installed my oldbrother hl-1440 yesterday, and ended up with two icons, hl-1440 and hl-1440 (copy 1).copy 1 works fine, but the other one shows a ! And doesn't work. I tried removing it but it reappears. How do i get rid of it? When i began the install, i started with a usb+printer plug(looks like it would go into a motherboard card slot). That failed. After a couple of tries with brother tech, they said i needed a usb a/b cable. That worked. P. S. I do not understand why i do not get notified when someone responds. I've checked the alertme icon.

Taskbar Icons

With windows explorer, when i have multiple tabs, open, the taskbar shows one icon and when i hover on it, the open windows are shown as thumbnails from left to right. I want them stacked one above the other with no thumbnail showing. Is that an option?

I have the same issue with outlook, i usually have about 8 or 9 open emails and it is hard to find the one i was working on, because i have to scan the top of the thumbnail to look for the relevant email. Let me know if there is one way i can change the default on all windows applications.

Desktop Icons

How can i keep windows 7 from moving around desktop icons, be they shortcuts or folders, when i add new ones. It's  very frustrating to not have control over where specific icons appear. I want to be able to 'permanently' pin a specific icon to a specific location on my desktop so i don't have to go hunting for it and then waste a lot of time trying to get it back to where i want it!  I also like to use blank space between icons on my desktop to help me organize them, windows apparently does not like me to do that.
