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 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?

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!

How To Change Hard Drive Icon Images?

How do you change hard drive icon images? I have an odd problem that just occurred in windows 7. I have several internal hard drives and 1 external hard drive. The external drive has always had its own unique icon and the internal hard drives all have the same icon image.

But somehow, the external drive now has an icon image of an internal drive, and my largest drive, a 1. 5tb hd, is showing the icon previously used by the external hard drive. I can't figure out why this happened, or how to change this back to the way it was. There is no performance issue, its just confusing since i've seen that external drive image so long i automatically go for the image when in my computer or explorer, and now that means i'm often selecting the wrong drive.

I click on properties>customize then select change folder image and select a hard drive icon that i want for each drive but it never changes the icon. And i am pointing to a proper *. Ico icon image file. Anyone have any ideas on this issue?

Wmp12 - Find Album Information - No Images Appear

Wmp12 "find album information" window malfunction i am having the strangest problem with wmp12 that i have been unable to find any kind of solution for online. Basically, if i right-click on an album and select "find album info", i am presented with the find album information window, but in place of every image that would appear is the small generic png logo. This is what i mean, i have tried sfc /scannow, resetting my wmp library, resetting the icon cache, and reinstalling wmp, but nothing has worked. Does anybody know what might be causing this?

Scanning Images Into Adobe Photoshop Cs2

Here's the issue i'm having. Photoshop itself works fine. My scanner (epson perfection v100) has the most recent drivers, compatible with windows 7. When i scan into photoshop, the image scans fine, and i close the scanning software as normal, but then i can't use photoshop. I can't click on any tools or menus, and the shortcut keys don't even work. The program is basically locked up. I have to shut it down through the task manager and hope it asks me to save the document before shutting down (which it usually does).

Then i have to reopen photoshop and open the saved document in order to do anything with it. I've tried running photoshop in windows xp sp3 compatibility mode but it makes no difference. I've even tried running the scanning software by itself without starting up photoshop, but that didn't work either. Does anyone have any advice (that doesn't involve me spending thousands of dollars that i don't have on a newer version of photoshop)? I'm an artist who likes colouring his drawings on the computer and it's a bit annoying having to work around it like this.

Duplicate Of Program Files

I have upgraded my windows 7 from 32 to 64 bit. I did a clean install and did a quick format of the drive first. This went ok, but i have duplicate of "program files". One is the usual program files and the second program files(x86). I want to get rid of this. I find that programs that are being installed that don't give an option of an installation location are by default being put into (x86), which i do not want.

I have tried to delete this file but the user accounts control will not allow me to do this, even though the control slider has been moved to the bottom and the computer rebooted. I am the only user and owner of the computer. The (x86) duplicates all the normal microsoft standard programs taking up unnecessary disk space, and now a large proportion of the self installed programs. I don't mind having to reinstall these if this problem can be solved.

Duplicate Files Will Not Delete

When i upgraded to windows 7 everything on my computer duplicated once or twice. I have done an inventory and am trying to delete the duplicate files. I select files and then either hit the "delete" key or do a right click and choose "delete. "

However. After i do this process for a few files my computer will no longer do this. After selecting the files to delete i press the "delete" key or right click to reveal the list with "delete" and neither works. The delete key does nothing and the right click does not bring up the menu with delete in it.

The only thing that helps (sometimes) is for me to close the "inventory" and re-open it. Then i have to re-sort the list to show the duplicate files and try to delete them. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't i have to close the file and re-open it again. Or turn off my computer and restart it. After deleting a few files it stops working again. L

Deleting all of the duplicate files on my computer is going to take me weeks. Doing when the delete key or delete menu doesn't work could take me forever.

Can anybody help  with this?

Media Player 12 Duplicate Tracks

Before you even answer. Understand that the music folder has only one copy of each track. So no wild goose chase to delete these extra songs. This has to do with media player 12 and the way it is scanning the folders and checking them against what is already in the library.

I purchased a new computer and i needed windows in order to play the games i had. I was using linux. For as much as i had to pay to get windows 7. Stupid errors like this shouldn't happen at all! I can understand it from the open source guys (of which fewer problems occurred) but not from a product i paid for. There should be a setting or a patch to fix this. Now i notice that when this happens i can close and reopen media player and it goes away until it decides to update the library again. Why by version 12! Does the library features not work properly?

Reconcile Duplicate Folders In Mail

How to reconcile duplicate folders in mail? I have upgraded from xp to windows 7 and imported from outlook express to windows mail. Now i have the windows mail folders structure mirroring the folder structure of outlook express, so far so good. But i have also a folder called imported folder which has the entire folder structure in it.

I can't simply delete that folder as i realized the duplication only later and saved e-mails into both folder structures. Not only that but also my old sent messages have not been properly transfered and my old messages are still in the old folder. What can i do to fix this mess?

Bitlocker Hangs With Duplicate Usb Key

I am using windows 7 ultimate with bitlocker running on the boot drive. My laptop doesn't support tpm, so i am booting successfully from a usb key. Everything has been working great. Today i bought two 'nicer' 8gb usb keys (they look better on my car keyring). I have tried copying the . Bek file to them, i have tried using the bitlocker manager to 'duplicate' my boot key. But nothing seems to work.

My original key works fine. But both of these new keys hang the computer immediately after windows says "windows bitlocker drive encryption key loaded. Remove key storage media. " My original key is a 4gb one. But that is the only difference i can see. Any suggestions?

Duplicate Programs Folder In Start Menu

I've noticed that ever since i upgraded from vista to windows 7 there is a duplicate programs folder in my start menu under all programs. It consists a duplicate of all the shortcuts and folders already in my menu. I remember a fix when i had the same problem a long time ago, where you go to properties of the start menu and uncheck the default program box. Solution explained here:

http://jen3ral. Wordpress.com/2009/03/25/vista-start-menu-duplicate-programs-folder/

However this solution doesn't work for windows 7 and i've gotten the same or atleast a similar problem again. Is there anyway to fix this?

Usb Problem - Bitlocker Will Not Duplicate Key

I used bitlocker under vista very successfully. It also worked fine when i upgraded to windows 7. Using a dell xps 420 however several months after the upgrade my usb key stopped working. I kept getting the message to insert my encryption key when it was already installed. The key itself appears to be fine. I used my hard copy of the recovery key to access my pc, but when i tried to make a duplicate key it simply wouldn't do it. I goto bitlocker manager and select "duplicate the startup key" then i select the drive and then "save". But then nothing is copied to the usb drive and the screen bounces back the "select options to manage" screen. I've tried and tested multiple usb keys.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?

Live Mail Duplicate Emails Appearing In Inbox

I am running windows 7 ultimate (x64) and i seem to be having some issues with windows live mail. I've read through the few topics i was able to find and have tried the solutions others have posted including disabling my anti-spam as well as mail anti-virus (kaspersky internet security). I have also made sure i have no duplicate email accounts setup. Right now i have three accounts tied into windows live mail, all of which are gmail accounts setup to handle mail using imap. Others have suggested turning off the "leave a copy on server" option off, but this option no longer appears to exist within windows live mail. Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it?

Duplicate Program File Folders On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I clean installed win7 pro 64 bit os from win7 pro 32 bit on my laptop and duplicate program files folders (with and without x86 designation) have been created. The duplicated files are windows programs, internet explorer, windows defender, windows mail, windows media player, windows nt, windows photo viewer, windows portable devices and windows sidebar. Does this mean that these duplicate windows apps are needed for 32 bit and 64 bit software to be able to work with that type of software respectively? Do i really need a 32 bit and 64 bit versions of internet explorer, windows defender, mail, media player, nt, photo viewer, portable devices and sidebar?

It would have been nicer just to have one set of these windows applications that works with both 32 bit and 64 bit software. These windows applications use a lot of hdd real estate. It would also be good to be able to have the option of uninstalling one of the duplicate sets. Is the ability to do just that available now?

Auto Reboot Problem

I have an acer aspire m7720. It has 6gb ram, a 920 intel core i7 and nvidia geforce gt230 with 64-bit windows 7. I have been using it for 6 months with no problems but lately, actually just today, it started to restart automatically after a few minutes. Sometimes it doesn't even reach the user login page and it will restart. The problem has gotten slightly better, i think, as it only restarts every hour or so now.

I don't think theres a blue screen of death, but i may be wrong, as i have already disabled the 'autorestart in the case of a system failure' option.

Auto Run Directory

Back when i was running xp there used to be a directory that contained links or shortcut of programs that you wanted to start whenever you logged into windows. I'm using windows 7 and am looking for this directory without much success. I have some apps that keep running when i log in that i don't run (like instant messenger) that i want to not start. Don't know what this directory is called and the help isn't much help. Not even sure if windows 7 has this directory or it implements the "auto run" feature another way. Ny help would be appreciated.

Monitor Unwanted Auto Reset

I have recently installed windows 7 premium onto my desktop. It has been performing reasonable trouble free but this latest glitch has me perplexed. It has been hot, but the machine was performing well until i left it for a short time and came back to find that the monitor setting had reset to create a blank screen and the "not optimum mode. Recommended mode:1280x1024 60hz". I have restarted the machine and the program is restarting properly, but there is nothing on the screen, just this message.

The machine has quad core q6600 2. 4ghz *mb cache
4gb dual channel ddr2 800 mhz memory
Nvidia geforce 8600gt - 512 mb pci-e graphics card
Samsung syncmaster 710n monitor

I have encountered this on an xp machine and the solution is to interrupt the boot process get into the a mode where you can change the monitor settings, but this was done by a technician. Any solutions?

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?
