"Burn Folder" Disaster (not the usual "can't del" thing)
was burning data on a DVD-R
i used the "like flash disc" method formatting it
then went on deleting, moving & renaming image folders..
i think that was wrong to do..
when i started the burn process it stopped responding after several minutes..
i had to force restart the machine to eject disc..
then i discovered a specific folder i put in the image is very big in size..
checked it and found the windows has created system files and folders in it
AppData, Temp, Microsoft, ..etc
it couldnt be deleted the easy way
used Unlocker, could just delete few folders then the machine stops responding..
and this repeated useless several times..
used the Safe Mode With Command: RD /S.. it deleted the folder..
but after restart windows normally the folder is still there and keeps creating system stuff..
some programs started using this location to run, like Chrome..
i discovered i lost all my history and cookies and had to reinstall it and its still sticking to the Burn Folder's infected folder..
the folder is growing fast.. i have to to wipe it using command and reinstall Chrome again and again..
i need to burn discs too..
i apologize for being too long

It might not be impossible to fix, but it is certainly extremely difficult, and liable to prove very time consuming.
Once you have accidentally redirected virtual folders and all permissions etc etc, then you are invariably in trouble.
I can't see any alternative to a re-install.

Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars"
My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar...
Hiding unused "removable storage" devices from "Computer" folder
Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less: I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. ...
"Temporary Burn Folder" in Windows 7 explorer (Nero 11)
Hi all, I'm coming across a strange issue with Nero Burning ROM 11 (a CD/DVD burner program). I also posted in the Nero forum but thought I would try here too, as the problem seems to relate specifically to Windows 7. I recently burned a Blu-ray data disc (UDF format) containing 11 folders. ...
