Windows 7: Folder Name after period is gone

23 Jul 2012   #21

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit


And then install Win 7 fresh.
You will need the product key.
SIW | Software | Licenses will show you the 25 character product key which you will need.

I also encountered this problem. Didn't realize I had it until some folders showed "Driver". That made me frown. Three fiodlers that are called "Drivers" in the same folder? Hmmm..

Do you have a NVidia GPU? I sometimes get this when uninstalling the NVidia driver.

The solution turned out to be to re-install the nvidia driver and:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\New Window\command]
@="Explorer.exe /e /n,%1"

instead of

@="Explorer.exe /n,%1"

What is causing this behaviour? Anyone?

30-day Evaluation Period
Hello, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why there is a 30-day "evaluation" period prior to activation. Typically, someone downloads a evaluation to try out the software prior to making a purchase. However, that is not the case with Windows as a customer would have to...
