Windows 7 Settings Error

Question

JayDee

Hello guys, I had this sudden settings error yesterday on my Windows 7 Pro x64. All was fine until I realized the below errors.

 

1- The default view chosen for every folder was reset to default. Now I am not able to chose a view settings for a certain folder without it being converted back to the default once I close that folder.

2- The System icons near the clock on taskbar keeps hiding themselves. Now the taskbar chooses what needs to be hidden and what needs to be shown. Even thought I drag the wanted icons to be shown, once I restart the laptop, the icons revert to being hidden.

 

Don't know what triggered such error. Is there any recommended fix ?

All you can do with this are the standard recovery methods. Put these commands in a admin command prompt (one at a time):

 

chkdsk c: /f    

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

sfc /scannow

 

If that didn't cure it you can also try Microsoft Fix It portable :

Good luck, hope this works for you.

any recent updates ?  

In the folder options you have the "apply to all"  button

 

you have the taskbar setup and icon properties ... you have the "always show all icons" if i recall ..

No recent updates. Tried that, the taskbar keeps hiding the same apps.

Thank you for this fix but the problem persists

I am left with no other option then to do a clean installation for windows.
