Win7 - Missing Details in Explorer...?

Question: Win7 - Missing Details in Explorer...?

This started happening all of a sudden...when I right-click on an mp3 and look under the Details tab, all of the information (artist, album, bitrate, etc.) is completely blank and it doesn't let me change it. iTunes can see the details no problem.

Anyone know what's causing this? Thanks.

Until recently, when using Windows Explorer, I was able to right click on an mp3 file, select properties, then the details tab and thus be able to see title, artist, album and other information.Now when I right click, I don't get the details tab (for any type file). What could have changed? Thanks

Answer:Win7 Explorer file Details tab missing?

A Windows update may have changed the options for security or stability reasons. The effect may not have been their direct intention, but a result of 'fixing' something else. You can still get this information in Windows Media player (or what ever they are calling it these days) or in Real Player.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.This site is about helping people, lets keep it that way.

Hi everyone. Is there a site that shows every possible windows explorer switch? I searched a lot of pages but they only show a few. I used be able in XP and vista , be able to open a folder in a details pane so it went to the end of the page instead of the top. ie, on my desktop ( I use classic view) I have a folder where I download everything first, click it on and it opens in explorer in a details view but I always have to scroll to the end of the page. I used to be able to append an end of page command to the explorer command line for this folder but I cannot remember it now. Thank you for your time.

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.

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. Thanks.

I have just setup a new pc with Windows 7 and have noticed a few "oddities" from what I'm used to with XP.

In XP, if I right-clicked on a filename in Windows Explorer, chose properties, then summary, I could add a description of the file that would show up on a file listing.

In Win7, when I right-click on the filename and choose "Properties", there is no means to add a description. This is particularly confusing since when I choose which columns to display in the Explorer screen, there are dozens of details listed that you can choose to display, including Title.

Does anyone know how I can add details such as Title to a file, either integrated in Win7 or a stand-alone utility?

Thanks.

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?

FIGURED IT OUT!!

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:

The Links details on my IE7 Toolbar have suddenly gone missing. The word Links is still on the left hand side of the space for the toolbar but it is completely inactive when I click on it or anywhere else in the bar area. Neither can I drag URLs to this area. Under Tools the Link option is ticked & Lock the Toolbars is unticked. Does anyone have any ideas on how this has happened & how it can be rectified?

Answer:Link details missing

If Lock Toolbars isn't ticked then you should have a faint vertical line to the left of the word Links. If you hover your cursor over this it should change to a double headed arrow and you should then be able to drag the links area out or move it onto another toolbar.

Originally when XP installed, for pictures, when File\Properties was selected the pane had two tabs: 'General' and 'Summary'. Now only the General tab shows in the pane. The Summary could then be expanded to 'Advanced' which showed all the meta data for the picture, i.e. details of the camera, exposure, f number, etc. This was very useful.The change may have occured when I included a Windows update. I have included all the Windows updates available for XP from the Microsoft site.Why is this second tab 'Summary' not now available? Any ideas or suggestions most welcome.

Hey all, new to the board and I've got a little (annoying) issue with windows explorer.

My mp3's no longer display the Artist, Album, Duration fields when windows explorer is set to list in "detail" mode. now the proper columns are selected however they are all blank.

Checking the "properties" of the mp3 files don't have any info in the summary section however entering anything in there.... doesn't change things. The columns are still left blank.

Winamp, windows media and every other media player I use displays all the track information correctly including album title and artist.

I have a whole bunch o' mp3's and previously they would all show this detailed information when being viewed in windows explorer. I've copied some to a memory stick and taken them to another computer, the details were displayed correctly as they should. So i'm thinking I may have set a securiity meassure or something but I can't figure out what I did.

The issue has been happening for the last year or so but now that I'm trying to organize my library i'm missing this feature.

Anyone have any ideas how to fix it?

XP SP2 is my OS.

Answer:MP3 Details in Explorer

Hi there...

Have you at any time had trouble accessing avi files in Explorer and had to run the following command:

regsvr32 u/shmedia.dll

???

If yes, that may be the cause of the problem, you can reverse it by clicking Start -> Run -> type:
regsvr32 shmedia.dll
Click OK

However, this is likely to cause you Explorer crashes with .avi files again.

If the above doesn't apply, it may be worthwhile trying the command then rebooting to see if it helps :)

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)

yet another round of "ZT doesn't like changes that don't help him" here.

as we all know, vista (and 7) have all kinds of derpy templates for what details are shown when you pick "details" view in windows explorer. but I don't need to have half the ID3 tag of a given mp3 sprayed all over the details view along with a totally meaningless "out of five stars" rating thing. and having directories change to that if ever there's more than a few mp3s in them gets annoying; I value meaningful details; filetype, file size, date modified, etc. is there any decent means to keep myself from having to go and manually fix every directory and subdirectory that gets music in it?

Answer:explorer "details view" templates...

IMO...Windows is designed to provide a number of options to the varied owners of PCs. I consider this a plus.

I employ details view on my systems...but the details I reflect for a given folder/directory...vary according to the content. I don't need music file data on non-music files...and I want to see certain data in folders containing music.

I put all of my music in one partition...and then set the default detail settings for everything in that partition, choosing only those options I am interested in (bit rate, artist, size, etc.).

That strategy serves my needs and that's the only way that I can think of to easily get like items reflecting the same details in Windows.

I have noticed this evening that on lighting up Windows Explorer in WIN 98SE, in the RH Pane there are no details shown. I can get the details in "My Computer", "Printers", "Control Panel", but on "C" and the subsequent folders I cannot get the details to show. It will show Large Icons, Small Icons, and List but not the Details. Any one got any ideas how to correct the problem? I always have mine set up to show Details.Thanks.

Answer:Windows Explorer & "Details not showing"

I had a brain wave. I have imported a recent copy (10/03/2004) of my Registry and low and behold, everything is now back to normal! It obviously pays to keep a recent copy of your Registry available in case of such happenings.

With Windows 8, Windows Explorer's status bar has taken a major step back. From Windows 95 to Windows XP - Explorer has had this very useful STATUS BAR that displayed very useful information at a glance. 

In Windows Vista, two features were removed:
 - Total size of ALL files
in a folder on the status bar without selecting them all, then excluding folders
 - Tooltip information of single selected file



Classic Shell fixed that.

In Windows 7, again three features were removed:
 - Free disk space on any volume at the current location
-  Computer zone
-  Total size of selected files
(not total size of all files, but selected files)



Classic Shell fixed it again.

In Windows 8, again these features are removed and the only feature left now is total number of items, items selected and size of selected items (but only up to 99 files)


I was told this info was removed for performance reasons because calculating size is computationally intensive or some bullshit reason like this but that is unacceptable.
Having the status bar show this info from Windows 95 to Windows XP didn't make these Windows versions unacceptably slow or unusable, this is a feature power users need all the time. At most,
Microsoft should just disable this info by default but not take it out.


This is the status bar from Windows 7 with Classic Shell installed. (It can fix all of status bar issues on Window... Read more

I like Windows 7...EXCEPT...I am worn out with having to lengthen the detail every time I open Windows Explorer. How can I set it up so that the details are of a set length, the way it was in XP and all earlier versions? This is very annoying.

Answer:Details in Windows Explorer and insanity

Open up explorer, click on view. Adjust to your liking.

Hey there...ok...when I'm in explorer (viewing files not the internet) my View setting sometimes changes from Details to Thumbnails for no reason at all...not it just affects that one folder...so I set it back to Details and it's all good again...the folder seems random...it's been happening to me for a long time...I don't think it's a virus or anything bad...I think it's a flaw or a bug or something...does anyone else have this problem??? THANX

Answer:How come my View changes from Details to Thumbnails in Explorer for no reason???

I had the EXACT same problem. I've attached the text below on how to fix it.

Good luck
By default, Windows XP will remember the view settings for the 400 most recently used folders. After that, XP will begin overwriting the data of the oldest folder, and its view setting will be lost. The information is stored in the registry by two keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam

These keys can be modified to make XP remember more folder settings.

Open Windows Explorer and go to Tools--Folder Options--View--Advanced Settings. Ensure that "Remember each folder's view settings" is checked.

Open Regedit and go to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell.

Right-click on "Shell", then follow to New--Key--DWORD Value.

Name this item "BagMRU Size" (without quotation marks, but with a space between BagMRU and Size).

Double-click BagMRU Size, give it a Decimal value of 2000, then click OK.

Now go to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam.

Create another BagMRU Size DWORD Value for "ShellNoRoam". Again, give it a Decimal value of 2000, then click OK.

You will have two "BagMRU Size" values equal to 0x000007d0 (2000).

Close the registry and reboot.

Windows XP will now remember 2000 folder view settings instead of 400

Always remember to back up your registry.

Sorry if this has been dealt with before - can't find it on a search.I am using XP with SP1.I want to create a spreadsheet listing the contents of various folders, mainly so I can identify gaps in downloaded series. Explorer gives me all the details I want, but I can't find a way to export all the information so it can be manipulated. So far I can only copy title information on one-by-one basis, and this is restricted to the file name. Ideally I would like to capture information about the entire contents of a folder, paste it into Excel, then sort by file size, creation date, etc. Is there an easy way to do this?

When I open a folder in windows explorer using the details view, i see times in the date column but no dates. For example, if a file was modified on 4/30/2006 at 4:56, all i see in the date modified column is 4:56. This is happening with all files in all folders.

I really don't want to reinstall WinXP, but i will if i have to. Any suggestions short of that.

This is a very recent problem and i thought it might be very common and easy to fix, basically, internet explorer has just decided to forget all my sign in information, for example www.google.com/ig is meant to automatically sign you in if you have ut forget me, basic stuff right? each time i go onto it it asks me again to sign in with the remember me box already ticked etc, every site this happens on, is it cookie related? iv checked all my settings, cookies enabled, so settings have changed since forever really. I did delete all the sign in information and start again, but still it doesnt want to remember any of it, any ideas at all feel free to post. I wonder if anyone else has this problem too?

Hey everyone,

I have been playing around with this for a while now and can't seem to do it.

Its there a way to show the year and size of a folder in a folder under details view?

What I mean is this. I have a folder that contains roughly 500 videos. Every video is contained in its own folder with the same name. What I would like is to be able to have the size of each folder and the year show in Details view.

EG...
Name | Size | Year
Video | 3gb. | 2005

Can this be done or am I just dreaming?

Answer:Windows Explorer Details View Question

Yes you can do it by applying following settings:

Open Windows Explorer (Shortcut : Windows Key + E))

Click on View as shown in below picture.



Now select Details as shown in below picture:




It will display your folder with all the details.

Hello to ALL,

Windows Explorer in details view does not display the columns headers bar (name, type, date, size etc...) - it was there since the installation in DEC'09 but today when i opened the WE it wasn't there. The folders and files are still showed in columns, from view/choose details... menu i can select/clear which columns to appear but the columns names are not displayed.

Has anyone encountered such a behavior? Any idea how to restore the columns headers bar to be displayed?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks / Nicky

Answer:Explorer - NO column headers bar in details view

Hello Nicky, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The column headers would only be displayed in the Details folder arrangement view. Since you do, then you might see if resetting all folder views to default may restore them afterwards. If it does not help, then you might see if a repair install can without losing anything.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,

This is an irritation rather than a major problem, but I'd still like to sort it.

The problem is that in Windows Explorer every time a new folder is created and often when changes are made to existing folders, my preffered view of full details gets changed to icons.

I've changed back to details, gone to Tools/Folder Options/View and hit the Apply to all folders button till I'm blue in the face, but this never seems to stick.

I'm running XP Pro SP2 using classic views.

Any ideas?

Is there a way to make files and folders mingle together when using details view in Windows XP?

The way it works now, the folders are always grouped separately from the normal files. I typically sort by filename and I'd like the folders to be mixed in with the files, sorted by name just as if they were regular files themselves.

I know this isn't an error condition, but it is an annoyance. Please post a reply if you know a fix or workaround for this. Thanks!

Is there a way to change the Windows Explorer default setting so that every time I use it the list of all the folders and sub-folders are displayed to show the Details setting? Right now I can change it for one folder and then I have to do it all over again for subsequent folders. I want it to default to the details option always. I am running Win XP and all the updates are current. It's a single user machine if that matters.
If this involves anything having to do with something called "registry," please remember that I'm really a beginner and have no idea how you do anything with "registry." It seems like it's always being mentioned though in every problem that needs to be fixed in Windows.

Hi, got a message yesterday on my windows 8.1 laptop saying my windows is expiring in a couple of weeks and I need to put in a product key to renew it. So I found my product key and put i tin and it won't work? It says it can't be accepted and to use another one?It was originally a windows 8 but I did the update to make it an 8.1.Anyone able to help?   Also where can I find the details to my laptop? Like serial number and stuff? There isn't a sticker underneath.

Answer:Problems with Y510P, windows expiring and won't accept product key, plus missing details.

It should not be asking for a Windows key if it was ONLY an update from Windows 8 to 8.1 Did you change the HDD, modified BIOS or installed 8.1 differently than going into "Update & Recovery"? Your Serial Number and Model No should be on the Invoice which Lenovo sent you.It should also be in the Final order email and the Lenovo Order Status on the website. Note it down, since I also couldn't find it on my laptop as a sticker.

I'm all about equality and symmetry. I like making what's around me look good and consistent.

Is there a program that would let me measure exactly how wide a detail tab is, and that I can adjust the same measurement in a different folder?

So check out the image, for example. I have:
1) Name
2) Dimensions [this folder is primarily intended for images]
3) Size
4) Type
5) Date modified
Yet there's another folder that I also use that is also intended for images. So when I open that next folder, I want those detail tabs to be the same exact width in measurement, yet when I add the "Dimensions" detail, I have to manually adjust the size of the detail tab and try to make all the other tabs as close to how it looks in the other folder, so my eyes can stay on a consistent focus.

I'm sure these's some program out there that can automatically resize these things.

(PS: I'm aware of the setting that I can make a default for folders with images in them.. yet I don't want to do this the default settings for all pictures folders)

Okay thanks.

Answer:How to display shortcuts target details in Windows Explorer

Um, impossible ?
Try : from the file menu click "View" and select "Choose Details" from the dropdown list. In the pop-up window, tick "Link Target". You will then be able to see the targets of shortcuts in that folder.

Hi, I've had my music files for a long time, nothing has changed and I haven't done anything different in terms of music players.

The details for my music files (eg artist, song name etc) has disappeared in Windows Explorer but they show up in Winamp.
I am also unable to edit the file details. They're all mostly .mp3 files

Answer:Music file details disappeared in Windows Explorer

When you open windows explorer check option ?Views? and set it to ?Details? so you should be able to see file name, size, type, artist, Album title, year, track number and duration.
You can open windows media player, go to library and check if you can edit each file listed there.

On Vista, I used to switch looking at images I'd created from being sorted by Name, to sorted by Date Modified (by use of the different Details Columns in Vista) whilst I was viewing the images as Icons. This was extremely useful to me.

Now in Win7, I have to first change them to Details View, then click on the column I want to arrange them by, and then switch back to Icons View. Is there any way to restore the details columns when looking at pictures as Icons?

Answer:Explorer.exe - Details Cols when viewing pics as Icons?

Right click a blank area, sort by. See the More... entry if necessary.

How to force Explorer to always show 'more details' while copying/moving files?

Answer:How to make Explorer always show 'more details' while moving files?

Can you be a bit more explicit? Where do you want these details to show up? Normally you just set Windows Explorer to shows Details via View / Details then click on Tools / Folder Options / View Tab and Apply to all Folders then Apply and OK.

In Windows Explorer, Detail View, is there a way to remove/disable the additional columns? (ie: Track, Artist, length, etc) I'm a simple person, and only want the main columns displayed, (Size, Type, Date) and Windows 7 seems to ignore me when i change the views. Even the "Reset All", and "Apply to All" seem to be ignored after a day later.

In XP your could remove them from RegEdit under HKCR\SystemFileAssociations and deleting the "Audio", "Video", and "Images" keys, and Explorer would 'forget' how to handle them, and details view would remain the same, but Win7 doesn't seem to respond to this either.

Answer:Windows 7 Explorer - Remove/Disable Details Columns

Hello Mikey,

You could use the General Items folder template and apply to all folders as in the tutorial below to set that folder view to all folders on the computer no matter what their folder template is.

Why are certain details, such as Frame Height, allowed in Windows Explorer when looking in a specific folder, but are missing when searching the contents of the same folder?

For example, I'm inside a folder (in details view) of video files and ask Explorer to show details of Frame Height. It will show that for certain file types. But when I search for one of the files by name, the Frame Height will be blank for the same file it just showed me the info for.

Answer:Windows Explorer won't show file details in search

It is generally accepted that the Windows 7 search is inadequate. Most here use AgentRansak, FileSearchEX, or Void Everything.

So far I'm pretty happy with Win 7, but one new feature is downright painful for me. In the Details view of Windows Explorer, the column headers and all columns except "Name" are displayed in a faint gray-on-white text. My eyes are unusually sensitive to low contrast, and they start to ache after only a few seconds' viewing.

I have the same problem on the web, where the low-contrast look has been stylish for several years, but a Firefox add-in called Stylish lets me change color schemes of sites I visit a lot.

If anyone can tell me how to convince Windows to use a normal black-on-white font for those columns, I'll be very grateful.

I do know about the high-contrast themes, but they're a sledge-hammer solution for a carpet-tack sized problem.

Many thanks,

AJ

Answer:Painfully Faint Text in Explorer Details View

Hi AJ and Welcome to Seven Forums,

If you have a LCD screen you might want to try ClearType it makes the words alot sharper and darker..

To turn this feature on click the start menu and search for ClearType and then Click on Adjust clear type text and it will give a sample of each style of clear type and you pick the best one..

Hope this Helps..

Hi, folks!

I'm trying hard to find at Internet a program or some way to output the informations from column details in Windows Explorer to a file (or to clipboard), cause I use different columns beside the normal information like filename, size, date, depending of the content of my folders. I.E. For a picture folder, I display dimensions of pics; for a mp3 folder, display bitrate and duration; for a video folder, display bitrate, duration and resolution (when available). I already tried a lot of programs, but none extract the informations the way I want (almost all of them just list the default columns, like filename, size and date) and I need a program that extract the columns exactly the way they are displayed in Windows Explorer. By the way, I'm using Windows XP Pro.

Thanks in advance.

I want to make some specific changes to the default Preview Details string for picture files in Windows Explorer. I have found an excellent write-up on how to edit that string using regedit, but the author was only interested in the specific around music. In the attached picture, I show the file properties/attributes that I am interested in placing in the Detail Pane. The current edited string is shown below.


prop:System.Photo.DateTaken;System.Keywords;System.Title;System.Subject;
*System.Photo.PeopleNames;*System.Contact.Location;*System.Contact.StateOrProvince;
*System.Contact.Country;System.Comment;*System.DateCreated;*System.DateModified;
*System.SharedWith

As you can see, some work, others don't. Is there a comprehensive list of these properties and their syntax in the form
(*)System.xxxx.yyy
that one can refer to when modifying the string?

Hi,
I must apologize in advance for any forthcoming ignorance, as I am a forum newbie. Using Win8.1, I am trying to relocate the Details Pane in Explorer from the space wasting right side to the well fitting & familiar bottom.

Fix I found is here: How To Move Details Pane To The Bottom In Windows 8.1 File Explorer

Has anyone had any experience in general with this tool? Haven't been able to find out any more jnfo either way othter than the link.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Better use Old New Explorer:

It has some other features but the one you are searching for is one of them. It doesn't always make the hack but it is much safer than patching the shell32.dll

Hello, I apologize if this issue has been addressed already, but I can't seem to find a thread with a solution to my problem. Whenever I set my view to "Details," my windows explorer would always set itself to other views such as Tiles, or other times, it would usually get rid of the other columns, and only the "Name" column appears while all the other columns disappear. If I add all the columns that I had originally back to its state, it would then go to other settings of view (usually Tiles) or just go back to having no other columns except "Name." These are just some examples of the issue that I have. Even if I went to Folder Options, and clicked on "Apply to Folders" or "Reset Folders," the problem still persists. Some folder's sub-folders even get affected for some reason. I have even scanned my computer for any malware, viruses, worms etc. I have Windows Vista, and I use AVG 9.0 and Ad-Aware for protection. They detect the computer is clean, and I always scan my computer on a regular basis. Thus far, I can't get the views to be fixed and not have it change to other views and settings. Is there any solution to this? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi.

I have Window XP. My computer received this message:

"Explorer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

All the desktop icons are gone.

Also, I can't run any programs like realplayer, documents, etc. The only things that work is my internet. I tried to click on control panel or run but it won't work either.

I thinking maybe I should reinstall the whole window but i don't have back up of all my documents in my laptop. So I hope someone can give me advice on what I should do.

Thanks in advance.

I generally use the "details" view in Windows File Explorer a lot. This is an example:

As you can see, I can sort my file types in various ways by clicking on the different columns at the top. However, I have a question:

Is it possible to create a custom column in File Explorer that I can use to sort files by based upon their file extension? I'm not talking about changing the columns that are already there or picking from the huge list that you get when right click at the top and pick "More." What I want to do is create a custom column that I can enter text in for based upon the file extension which I can then use to sort my files into groups (such as audio, video, projects, etc.)

This could help me stay much more organized in File Explorer. However, you may be wondering why I don't just use the option to sort my files by "type" or "extension." The reason that I don't want to do this is because then not all of my files will be in the precise order that I want them to. Even though I found a way to modify the "Type" text for SOME files, as you can probably see in the image, I have not been able to for ALL file types (such as PNG, JPG, and JPEG), which is a real roadblock. This is because FileTypesMan is an old program and Registry Tweaks don't seem to be working even after I restart Windows Explorer.

Because of this, I'm wondering if there's a way to create a custom column that I can enter custom text into (which w... Read more

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.

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.
