Windows pro 64 bit sp1

Tried it, and it fixed my recycle bin which was corrupt. Problem's still there though.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

The only thing left to do is a Repair Install. Backup all your important files in case something goes wrong in the repair. It is not likely you will have any problems since the system is stable, but still a good idea to backup. Then download Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with Service Pack 1 ISO, burn the ISO to disc, and run through the steps in the repair install tutorial.

Any luck with the repair install?

I decided to do a clean format, but need to wait till I'm between projects. Need to do a format once a year anyways. Thanks.

Let us know when you do the format and how the system responds. :)

Compressed (zipped) Folders Error: Asynchron Execution Timing Problem

Actions like copyHere of the Shell.Application Namespace object are executed asynchronously. I am sure, this is the reason, why my zipping is only working well, if I do in in debugger line by line. And it's failing with an "File not found or no read permission" Error, when running in normal speed. Most probably that asynchronous execution in the background while the application thread is already executing further commands is the reason for that errors! And not a corrupted file system. And also not a corrupted Windows system!

Compressed (zipped) folder problem?
When I right-click a 13.2 MB MP3 file and send it to a compressed (zipped) folder, the compressed folder is 13.1 MB--pretty much the same size as the original document. Shouldn't there be more compression that takes place? I get the same results when I create a compressed folder on the desktop and...

New Folders always compressed .zip
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Whenever I right click on the desktop to create a new folder, I am only ever given the option of creating a new compressed .zip folder. Is there a setting I can't find so I can turn this off. My Pictures folder is .zip as well which prevents any thumbnails being...

Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder - on external drive
Greetings. When I use the default Send To Compressed (zipped) folder contextual menu command, I would like to be able to choose where to create the archive instead of it always being placed on the desktop.

SendTo : Compressed (Zipped) Folder : Default?
Hello all: I went a bit nutty and started over-customizing my "Send To" folder, located at "C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo". In the middle of moving shortcuts around, I lost the shortcut labeled "Compressed (zipped) folder". This is the Windows7 default, not connected to...

Compressed (zipped) Folders
Ok another annoying thing on Windows 7. I never saw this pop-up before. Since this week this pop-up is appearing out of nowhere. I don't even know what I have to do to show up. I'm simply navigating on the Windows Explorer. I don't use any options, just...
