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.

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?

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?

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.

I am using win7 ultimate. I have a folder named "ignored" which has over 250, 000 files and they are all windows live contact folders. On my c:/ derive under users/guy/contacts/email removed for privacy/ignored/ i have over 250, 000 files that appear to be windows live contact files.

Windows.old Folder

After upgrading my laptop from windows vista 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit, i noticed that i have a folder on my c: drive called windows. Old. I was wondering if i can delete this folder as its taking up almost 50 gigs of hard-drive space that i would love to get back. My problem is, if i delete this file will my laptop become unstable?

If i can, how would i go about deleting this folder without deleting anything that is outside this folder? When i did my upgrade i used the windows easy transfer and still have the file that it created backed up on am external hard-drive.

Where Did Folder List Go?

I just received my new windows 7 computer in early april. I want to organize my files in folders and create new folders that make sense for the things i do and ways i use my computer. I went to windows explorer and there was nothing like that in there. I found the "where did the folder list go?"  Area in the help files. I tried to follow the instructions, but i do not get results like those pictured in the help file. I was able to get a navigation pane, but that does not help me much if it does not let me navigate through my "local disk (c:)".

The picture in the help file shows that it would do that. I want a folder tree so i can see what folders are already there, and make new folders in places that make sense!  I do not like to put stuff on my desktop wall paper. I only want important applications i use regularly there and i do not like clustering it up with files and folders. There is also other junk in the navigation pane like a "downloads" folder that does nothing to show me where it is located. I cannot even e-mail a file because i cannot find it, since i do not have a folder list. I can work from there if it will just show me where it is on the tree!

Folder Keeps Opening Up

Every time turn on my computer, the c:windowssystem32 folder automatically opens (full screen). Under one user account, it opens up completely, under another user account it doesn't open up but an error message opens up (about 5 or 6 times) saying that the folder should be associated with another file. This leads me to believe that the desired setting to change is in the user's settings someplace but i can't find where. Or i am wrong completely.

Folder Positioning

Having recently upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, i've run into a couple of issues that i really miss in my windows vista and windows xp machines and wonder if it's possible to get the functionality back. Let me begin with a little background. I work with 4 30 inch monitors and with the desktop stretched across all 4 monitors which allows me to pre-position various windows and applications so that when i turn on the computer, outlook will land on the 3rd monitor, internet explorer and microsoft word 2007 will share the 2nd monitor etc. I should probably also mention that i work completely hands-free and wrote 90% of the commands i use in knowbrainer (naturally-speaking third-party command utility).

1. I've noticed that when switching to microsoft word, outlook and excel, that windows doesn't remember the size although it does remember the correct monitor and position. To make matters worse, when switching to a different application, using naturallyspeaking voice commands, the window returns to its original size and i have to resize it every time i switch to the app.

2. This question may be related to the 1st. Because i have 4 monitors, i like to open folders in specific positions on the 4th monitor. In both windows vista and windows xp, the operating system would remember each folder's position and i typically work with the same 3 or 4 folders. Unfortunately windows 7 only remembers the size and position of the last folder which i find inconvenient in my workflow. Switching to windows xp emulation is not an option as naturallyspeaking will not accept it.

I would greatly appreciate a solution if anyone has found a workaround for these 2 problems.

No Startup Folder

Recently, i put a program in the startup folder in

C:usersadminappdataroamingmicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsstartup

I later decided that i didn't want the program to startup every time i log on, but instead of deleting the program i accidentally deleted the startup folder instead. The folder is no longer in the recycling bin. Does anyone have any idea of how to replace my startup folder because i would really like to put some programs in there.

I've tried using task scheduler, but didn't find it to be very effective. What i really need is a new startup folder.

New Folder Problem

I am experiencing a problem when i create a new folder. I go to an open space in my computer, right click, and click new folder, a new folder appears, as expected, but the problem is that in the new folder, there looks like there is a picture, but when i go into that folder, there is nothing, (and that is what i expected, as it is a new folder). My goal here isn't to restore what was in the folder, (as there isn't supposed to), but to eliminate the supposed image that windows thinks is in the folder. I think this happened when i messed with the folder options, but i'm not sure. I can live without it, but it's very annoying.
