How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosenAny suggestions are appreciated.

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

In order to customize which fields are displayed in the details pane for a given file type you can:

1. Run Regedit.
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAsso ciations\.mp3 (Or whatever file type you want to edit.)
3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

My question is:
Is there a way to do something similar for folders? Currently, the only info displayed in the details pane when a folder is selected is Date modified, and Availability. I would like to add other details to this pane (Size, Date created etc...). Is this possible?

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified.

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.
Up till now I have tried the following solutions:
1. I have reset all the folder options in Vista by going to Folders/tools/reset defaults. (did not work)
2. After resetting the folders, I have also turned on the details pane option under Organize/Layout and the details under the Views. (did not work)

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

I had to manually find all related files to OE6 to delete it so it would reinstall. Then the updates. Now nothing shows up on the preview pane or when I open the email. I can use Outlook instead but what is wrong? The only view of the message is in properties: details: message source.

Answer:Solved: OE has empty preview pane, open pane

1. With Outlook Express closed, go to Start>Run
2. Type in: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll (with the space after "regsvr32")
3. Click OK (or press the Enter key)
4. Open OE and see if things are fixed

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix this?

FYI I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro.

Answer:Windows Explorer: Navigation Pane and Preview Pane Bug

Try Explorer++ and see if you get the same problem.

Need to enable "Folders" view.
If it works then you can rule out problems with system files and it's probably a buggy shell extension.

It's portable and runs without installation.

Let us know if navigation pane works using Explorer++

Is it possible to have no Nav Pane when opening a Desktop folder, but have Nav Pane when opening Win Explorer? Like it was in WinXp/Win98/Win95?
When I disable Nav Pane, it disappears for Desktop folders and Windows Explorer.

I think the answer was 'no' for Win7.

I installed Classic Start Menu hoping one of it's features could do it. If it does, I've not been able to enable it. Other than that, Classic Start Menu is a super improvement.

I need a little help with something that seems simple. I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. I have changed the columns in Details view in a folder. However Windows is not populating those columns, so what am I missing? This holds true on both my network drives and my local drives, so I checked my indexing options and they are set to index my local drives, so I assumed that should have at least worked. Any help would be very much appreciated.

For Windows 7, is there a list of the 'Details' available in the Windows Explorer folder view called 'Details' which has an explanation for each of them? Most of them are simple but some leave me scratching my head.

Answer:explanation of 'Details' in Windows Explorer 'Details' view

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

For security purposes, I stopped using the Preview Pane in OE. But now, when I receive an e-mail with an attachment, there is no paper clip to click. There is just the note about the attachment under the subject line. And when I click that, the attachment opens automatically. With the paper clip, when I would click it, I had the option of opening the attachment or saving it. I always would save it so it would go through my anti-virus program. Is this a case of either-or? Or is there a way I can avoid using the preview pane and still be able to save attachments instead of them opening automatically? Thanks.

    I use windows explorer a lot and I always use the left side navigation pain/tree view. The problem I have, first started after I switched from XP to Vista. When I click on the little red triangle, the folder should open, revealing the folders within like a drop down menu does. The parent folder does reveal the contents, but it jumps all the way down to the bottom of the explorer window concealing the contents of the parent folder, then I have to scroll up to see the folders within. Win XP never does this. What is really irritating is that the problem is intermittent. 50% of the time it works fine, the other half, the parent folder drops down to the bottom concealing the folder contents. I have three desktops in my home, two with W732, one with WXP32 and a laptop with W764, all have the same issue except for the one with XP. At first I was thinking that it was a bug specific to Vista and since Win 7 was due to be released soon after Vista, I dealt with it until I upgraded to Win 7. Unfortunately, Win 7 32/64bit also continued to have the same problem. This was really becoming a pain in the (you know what). If anyone has had the same frustrating problem, and found a solution they would like to share, or if someone has some input, it would be most appreciated. Thank you.


    Answer:Windows Explorer: Tree View/Navigation Pane problem

    I saw that too. It's a bug in Windows explorer. Researching a little on how to fix it, found that it has been reported to MS numerous times and they do NOT plan to fix it.

    The only workaround I know of is installing a program called "Classic shell" (Welcome to Classic Shell). It adds a lot of options in Windows Explorer to customize and make it similar to WinXP, and even has a complete replacement for the start menu to look like previous versions.
    The important part is, it includes an option to fix that bug among its customization options. I'm using it and so far it never annoyed me with that bug anymore.

    I think your first step should be to scan for malware as it is possible you have an infestation.

    I recommend that you run Disk CleanUp or cCleaner to remove temporary files as this will reduce scanning times by security software.

    Boot the computer to safe mode with networking and download and install Malwarebytes (freeware version for home users only), update definitions and run in safe mode. Disable other security software whilst you are doing scans.

    I am running a computer with Windows XP (P4 3 GHz processor; 1 GB RAM). I accidentally installed a FDoS-Spabot Trojan. I have McAfee running which has detected and removed (seemingly) every iteration of this malware that is generated. The file name is always a variation of: S3a5.5exe. Ususally the number next to the "exe" changes, but when I turn the computer on and off,the file name itself changes as well. Currently it is "S382.pexe"

    McAfee's virus library is not complete with regard to this virus, and a full system scan did not take care of this problem. I found your site through the McAfee forums, by the way. As a result of the failure of McAfee to remove this malware, I downloaded and ran a number of recommended anti-virus and system cleaner tools, none of which have been least as far as I can tell.

    I have now followed your "5 Steps before you post" instructions. The Safe Boot of Ad-Aware did not find the problem, nor did the recommended Pandascan. One note - the Pandascan took quite a long time, and upon completion, when I tried to get the report, my browser locked up. This actually happened three times. Due to the length of time this scan takes, I am posting only the Comboscan info until I can get the Pandascan data. However, I am not optimistic that this will happen -- but I will try again this evening.

    Answer:Advice,- peculiar problem with 'details' entries

    I have just discovered a most peculiar thing when entering info in a prepared box ( on Langalist > sendit2 site ).The sort of box I mean is where you enter 'name' 'email address' etc. Left-Clicking on it didn't deposit/expose the cursor so that typing could commence. However, double clicking worked, except - instead of the cursor there appeared one of my confidential passwords ( that I hadn't used for ages )Next box, same process produced my email address as if I'd pasted from Edit menu.Using Win 98SE. Is this a problem, or what ?Regards

    Firefox is determinedly filling in the login box at the top of the PCA website with the wrong details. I accidentally clicked Firefox's "Remember for this site" dialogue button without realising that the login box had the wrong details in, and I can't find any way to reset it. Can anyone help?

    Answer:Firefox problem - filling in wrong login details

    If using F/F v2.0, have you tried Tools>Options>Security, then show passwords then delete the PCA password and then reset from the PCA welcome page then a dialog box will ask if you want to remember this password, also click the box Remember password for sites.HTH bretsky ;0)

    Hello there! this is my first post, I come here often as an 'outsider' for support on troubleshooting but this time I can't genuinely work out what's causing my issue after some research!

    Since yesterday my Windows 7 Professional x64 system has been shutting itself off mid-use and whilst away, left idling. I've seen it shut down when:
    Midway through a SUPERAntiSpyware scan [Nothing else running]
    Typing in a form submission text box in Firefox [Latest version & Add-ons]
    Typing in a generated Notepad document
    ...just normal day-to-day use for me!

    Here are the problem details under Windows Reliability Monitor [Same for all the occurrences]

    I'm using all the latest Windows Updates
    I managed to run and complete another scan, also with Avira Internet Security 2012 [Squeaky Clean as always]
    The integrity of my Windows System Files is OK
    My CPU & GPU temperatures are fine - it's slightly warmer than usual where I am as well
    My CPU & RAM seem to be stable
    My PSU of high quality construction and has an LED indicator which displays everything as functioning normally
    On a quick inspection all cables seem to be connected fine internally
    No other external USB devices were attached during any of the witnessed shut downs other than my Logitech G110 Keyboard and G9x mouse [Only ever plug in an external HDD from time to time]
    Also, looking through my Windows Reliability History Log, apparently the only software change recently is the installation of Microsoft Visual C++ ... Read more

    ^^ This right there is my problem. Here are screen shots of my problem may one of the experts please help me because my other thread is useless please remove it This is day 2 and no one knows the fix to this?
    I found this post on another site but did not understand what he did to fix the issue does anybody know any light to this issue?


    There was a driver from "New Software, Inc." for a product called "Folder-Lock", which is used to be able to assign a password to access windows folders, that was getting invoked by the Win7 System Kernel. I uninstalled this product, and presto, problem gone - no more 50% of CPU being used by system - - -

    How I Did It::

    I couldn't find any software or features within "Xperf", "Windows Process Monitor", or "Windows Process Explorer" that allowed me to "map" the offending Thread ID to the responsible driver. However, Windows Process Explorer does display info for all the Drivers being loaded/invoked for a given process - including the "System" kernel process.

    So I just went and slowly browsed thru all 173 of them, and thought about what non-Microsoft drivers might possibly have something to do with locking up resources - a clue given to me by the Starting Address for the offending TID from Process Explorer:

    When a hardware or software problem occurs, you face a crash, your application is not working properly or your IE got crashed several times. When all such nasty thing occurs, Windows collects information from your computer that describes the problem and then creates a problem report.
    Problem report details can include the name of a program that has stopped working, the date and time that a problem occurred, or the version of the program that has encountered the problem. Sending a problem report allows Windows to notify you if a solution is available.
    If a solution is not available, you might be asked to provide additional details about the problem. Your participation can help Microsoft create new solutions. Additional details can include files or parts of files that help identify the problem or explain how it has affected your computer.
    Windows does not intentionally collect any personal information about you. You can view the additional details in a problem report before sending it to Microsoft.
    To know more about what information is being sent view the details of a problem report. Here?s How: Go to Control Panel or Notification area and open Action Center.Click Maintenance.Under Check for solutions to problem reports, click View reliability history. In the list of reliability details, double-click any item to view its technical details.

    I've got a huge problem with a virus and/or spyware on my PC. The first problem it started causing was, when I search on and then click on a link it always brings up in the address bar and then takes me to straight to an advert page. I've been trying to get rid of it using various anti-malware packages (spybot, AMB and Super anti-spyware) but when I try and search with them it just closes the program and then it won't let me back in to it. Even if I try and download it again and reinstall it. If I run AVG it find a virus called TrojanHorse PSW.Agent.ACTI but can't remove it.

    The major problem I have is someone has got hold of my internet banking logon and actually set up a standing order from my account of 1000 per week! Luckily the bank picked it up straight away! I'm assuming that this is down to the virus/spyware.

    I have tried to do a scan with HijackThis but again, as soon as I click scan it just closes and then I can't open the program anymore.

    Please, please, please help!!!

    Many Thanks in advance

    I have intel HD Graphics and AMD Radeon HD 8670m problem when i click right click on disktop only amd Graphics propertis that show up but no intel Graphic propertis / when i reinstall intel graphic driver amd Graphic propertis gone and only intel that show up

    Dell laptob
    Windows:8.1 Enterprise N 64bit
    processor: intel (R) Core (TM) i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60GHz up to 2.30GHz
    Bios Ver : A09

    Answer:intel HD Graphics and AMD Radeon HD 8670m problem details in the post

    When your laptop is plugged in, the dedicated GPU will be active.

    When on battery high performance mode, the same is when it's plugged in

    When on power saving mode, Intel HD is used

    When on balanced, both will be used depending on how heavy an application is (example when browsing Intel HD will be used then when gaming, HD 8670M will be used)

    The subject: HP zt3000 laptop - 1GB RAM, Windows XP Pro SP1, only a few months old.

    My neighbors son brought this to me with a new record of Malware, Trojans, etc. on it. He also had some real fun ones like VX2 and that *#$! Aurora/Nail.exe mess from Direct Revenue! After a lot of manual work and running Ad Aware, CWShredder, Spybot, MS AntiSpyware, Bazooka, Spy Sweeper, CounterSpy, TDS-3 Trojan Scanner, the Ewido suite and a few other tools to get rid of Aurora, it finally is clean. My HijackThis logs look good. I have updated the computer with all available updates but I have one problem left.

    I know get a the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close . . ." pop up as soon as the computer boots up. It does not have any link or button for details (where there would normally be information of the offending process/dll). It only has a close button which indeed closes it, but it reapears in 10-12 seconds. This box pops up regardless of whether IE is even open. It will still allow me to use IE - I just need to move the box out of the way.

    My first thought was a left over BHO, but HijackThis shows no BHOs!

    I tried unchecking the "enable third party browser extension" but the error still pops up (seeming to confirm a BHO not being the cause).

    I forced a IE reinstall (changed the reg value for IE and OE to 0) and reinstalled. That did not help.

    I tried the IE-Fix tool and it too did not work.

    I just did an XP Pro repair install and ... Read more
