Windows 7: Windows 7 Folders Content Images

Windows 7 Folders Content Images

Recently there was a power outage which caused an abrupt shut down. As a result a lot of things stopped working such as anything related to the task scheduler defrag and weid dll stuff. sfc /scannow didn't work but what did was a repair installation. I would really for the time being would not want to do a clean install. A bit long winded but here is the problem. I do not know what this feature is called but before if i created a folder and put in an acrobat file, in the folder where in the image it spreads there would and image of an acrobat file. If there were a lot of file the folder would show lots of sheet. I now longer have that. I get the same folder but it is more like the unanimated xp folders. Would anyone be able to suggest a fix? Thanks in advance.

Hi JukeboxJezabel,

I'm not sure why a power outage would have caused this, but I'm assuming a file has been corrupted. What I'd like for you to do, however, is to check to see if your folder settings have been altered.

Navigate to the 'Start Menu', and type in 'Folder Options'. Hit 'Enter'. Click on the button that says 'Restore Defaults'. Also, you can navigate to the 'View' tab and hit 'Restore Folders' and press 'Yes'. Check any boxes that you would like to have as your default settings. Then, reboot your computer and check to see if you're still experiencing this problem. If you are, let me know and we'll work on another fix.

Thanks so simple! It works perfectly. It was a bad crash. I have had this happen when I was running XP but nowhere was the extent of damage like this. The majority of Windows 7 programs just disappeared such as snipping tool, all the widgets (the feature wasn't shut off), most of the stuff in the accessories folder etc. Thanks again.
