Context menu item was added by MBAM's shell extension (C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll). This DLL contains hard-coded strings for every supported language and displays one according to default system language (because the shell extension is loaded inside of explorer.exe). You should ask the vendor to fix this shell extension, so that ...

For convenience (and a temporary fix), just restart the explorer.exe process. This caused all other apps to open like normal again for me. This isn't a permanent solution, and I only stumbled upon this when I tried to run cmd as an administrator and my explorer.exe became non-responsive.

I was going to answer by pointing out that while the original Folder Size did not work for some time in Vista and up, it now works by creating a separate window that does track folder sizes. So while it is not in a column inside the existing Explorer window, it does float next to it, and the separate window can be sorted by size. However, I see that this ...

Enter will open the selected item with the default program. If its an image, it will be opened with your image editor/viewer. Alternatively, you can enable the preview pane on the right, which means that every file that is an image is shown there. There's an icon in the toolbar you can click to activate the preview pane, but ALT+P also activates it. ...

Elevated processes essentially run in a separate session. Non-elevated programs do not have access to their resources. This also means that when you map a connection in an elevated command prompt, it won’t be available to non-elevated applications at all. By default. Whether or not mapped network drives (or even sessions, especially noticable with password ...

After checking my own mydocs.dll, It shows that the resource ID is 101 for the icon you displayed and resource ID: 100 for the first icon (folder with document).

Office uses a 32-bit Icon Handler, which breaks the XML icon on 64-bit systems. To stop Office from trying to serve your icons for XML files, you can use this registry script: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\DefaultIcon] @=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\ ...

This is probably a extremely vague answer but I still don't know what fixed it. If anyone has the same issue all I can tell you is to make sure you have 2 folders in your user folder. 1 folder named "Favorites" and 1 folder named "Links". For me my userfolder is C:\Users\Greg If the two folders are correct they should show a special icon aswell. After that ...

There is a free application, RecentFilesView, though it shows files rather than folders, and only those opened through Windows Explorer or from a standard open/save dialog-box. *If you wish to instrument specific folders, there's also FolderChangesView, which, I believe, utilizes a standard Windows API call to set up a callback on any change to a folder (a ...

Easier than you might think... main problem is the apps folder(s) under the user's name contain hidden folders which are linked to programs that might keep processes running in the background.

OK, I think I've somewhat got this covered: I opened services.msc, stopped the print spooling service, deactivated it and then rebooted. Then I was able to delete the contents of %WINDIR%\system32\spool\PRINTERS. I reactivated the print spooling service, rebooted again, and now everything seems to work as long as I keep my Samsung printer turned off. When ...

Another program fragment that should refresh the thumbnail cache using the IThumbnailCache COM interface (C++). To my knowledge there isn't any precompiled tool for the task.

The problem is rather complex. The best thing to do is design an application specifically for this purpose. Option 1: Search for *.jpg, *.avi, etc and they should all be cached then. Option 2a: Create a batch script to manually create the thumbnails. Example (adapt to your needs): mkdir thumbjunk for f in *.jpg do convert $f -thumbnail 100x80 ...
