Windows 7: Documents, Pictures and Music not showing (task kill)?

12 May 2015   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

Hi all,

I deleted the delay.dll but still can't access my personal folder, my document, my pic, music, games and computer from the windows menu.

However, I did discover that I can access the above named programmes from the pathway at the top of the my control panel or the device and printers page eg. C: Personal folder--> Libraries etc

So it seems to be a file pathway issue.

How can I make my widows menu pathways work again to open my docs, my music etc

Many thanks for any help you can provide.

I removed the dplay.dll from the SysWow64 file and switched off computer. Since then I have use of the windows menu again. The issue seems to be resolved. Fingers crossed.

Everyone, thank you for your help. I was really worried I would lose my family photos and music collection there. This is a very helpful and friendly community.
