Could we get your system specs?

Have you done any resource.dll mods, or modded any other aspect of the OS? Which OS?

Same problem here

Sorry for the thread from the dead, but I'm experiencing the same problem. Windows 7 ultimate 64 unmodified. I see dates instead of names in some dialogs but not all of them, and when you click on a file, the name shows correctly in the file name box. Any ideas?

I have found the solution to this problem. Right click inside the folder, go to properties. In there, go to customize. In there it says something about optimize this folder for blah blah Set that to general. Mine was set to pictures. For some reason having it set to pictures screws up the way files are displayed.

Wrong dates on folders / Windows Explorer
Hello, Is there a way to force Windows Explorer (Windows 7 Premium) to display the proper dates in the "date modified" category? It's displaying the same date as in "date created". I've edited some of the files in that folder a few days ago but it still displays a 2008 date. Thanks in advance,...

My drives are not showing up in Windows Explorer.
Just like the title says, I can't see any of my drives in Windows Explorer and I can't figure out why. The Disk Manager knows they are there and they are even labeled properly (the hard drive as C; and the dvd drive as D:) but they won't show up in the Explorer window. I just recently switched from...
