Padlocks on photos on old login, new login cannot view photos at all.

Q: Padlocks on photos on old login, new login cannot view photos at all.

Hello. Right, he's my problem. I've been using my parents computer for the last few months and decided to make my own user/log-in the other day. After doing so, I cut/pasted my photos folder into my new user directory (or whatever, I'm not very techie..). I have thousands of photos, my BF is a photographer, and I can view most of them. However, in one particular folder 90% of them aren't viewable! Says I don't have permission... When I log back into parents windows, I can see the photos in my directory (as they are no longer located in theirs) but there are little gold padlocks on the ones I cannot see on my log-in. I've tried changing permissions, ownership, you name it.. I've looked for help on line and tried everything. The only thing that seems to work is if I right click on each individual photo and change things that way.. but I do have a life and this will take AGES.. Can anyone help me?

If you need more information, please ask.

Have you tried forcing inheritance on the folder with the locked files?

WARNING! Make a backup HDD image BEFORE trying this.

You might want to get your parents permission too.

I have an Aspire V17 nitro Black, with Windows 10.  When the computer first turns on, it displays a beautiful background photo with the option to like or not like. Clicking on the photo, then opens the standard windows 10 login screen.  I have not found any indication if the photo comes from Acer, Microsoft or some other company.  The same photo will be displayed a few times the computor is turned on or wakes up, then it will change to a new photo. The scenery photos often intrique me and I would like to track down more information about the photos, their locations and what company is supplying them.  I am also curious as to what program can display photos before I even log in. Anyone know or have suggestions about how to track down who is supplying the photos and how to find out more about them?

I have Vista Home Premium with Microsoft Photo Gallery on my Dell Inspriron 1721 laptop. I?m using a machine to transfer slides to a SD card then uploading them to Photo Gallery. Photos transfer Ok except the order of the photo gets scrambled somehow during upload. In other words, the photos on the SD card are in chronologically order but after uploading, when I view them in Photo Galley, the order is all mixed up. I know you can manual move them around but it?s hard to be sure of the original order and it is very time consuming when you have hundreds of photos. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix them. FYI I would call myself a novice user of Photo Gallery.

A:Uploading photos from a SD memory card into Photo Gallery scrambles order of photos

Will the Photo Gallery sort by name? You could prefix the photo names with numerical sequence. A utility like
Introduction - Bulk Rename Utility will do it easily. It's free.

Edit: if that looks too busy, the multi-renamer in FreeCommander is a bit simpler to use. [c] before the name prepends a number starting at what you select and incrementing by what you choose. Just press F2 when in the folder.

My sister has photos of me in my bridesmaid dress that she took with her camera. I saved them on my computer.
I am going out of town to see our family, and cannot take the computer, but want to show the pictures. I will have my camera.

I tried transferring the photos to my camera's memory card by changing their file names to the same type of name as the photos that were taken with my camera. They are displayed as DSCN0610, so I renamed the photos as DSCN0700 and so on. Then I put my memory card in the driver, (G drive) opened up the drive, opened the folder where the pictures from my camera were, and dragged the newly renamed photos into that folder.

I put the memory card back in my camera and hit the display button, and the message I am getting for the spots where those files are is "File contains no image data."

What did I do wrong? What do I do?

Information - My camera is a Nikon Coolpix.

Hello, would you please help me!,

I once had an earlier version of NetZero internet service and had absolutley no problems with it. I moved out of the country for a few years and put the computer, along with the rest of my things, in storage.

When I returned to the States I was informed by NetZero to install their latest version, which I did. Soon after installing it, I started having problems with photos. They wouldn't appear; all I would get was black with a faint outline of the picture, usually purplish dots. By the way, I've tried turning off the "TuroCharge" function that alters how pictures load. It is completely "off."

Then, my computer began having problems shutting down fully. It would not reach the "It's Safe To Turn Off Your Computer" message. On re-starting it, as it would go through the scandisc program, it would always go through the NetZero program's files hesitatingly slow. This is another reason why I think the NetZero program has wreaked havoc with my computer.

I began calling NetZero about these problems and all they could recommend was to re-install the program. I've done this about six times now.

I've now reached the point where when I pull up "Yahoo!" the search box is completely black, and images like photos don't come in. If I go to the New York Times on-line, not only do photos not come up, but if I try to view an article, the screen is deep purple. Now if you can imagine ... Read more

A:I can't view photos or much of anything else lately.

is there any way you can get rid of netzero and go with something else? i know aol is crappy but its free and has never ruined any of my computers. hope this helps you.

I have some problems with my iPod and I don't know if it started after I installed something or not, but this is what's wrong:
- The camera of my iPod starts and then crashes, OR sometimes if I start it it can take one picture and then the black screen with the white turning thing (which you also get when you turn off the iPod) and then it returns to the home screen
- The images app also doesn't start up. If I tap it, it opens but before the text ''camera roll'' and that stuff is loaded, it crashes.
- When my iPod is cabled (i know thats not a word) to my pc, a windows window appears for importing the photos on the ipod to the computer with windows. when I click import, the blue screen appears on my pc and luckily it can start up again. it happens every time. now that's not a very big problem.
- in itunes when i connect my ipod, a bar with some different colors appears, right? to show how much space apps, photo's, books, music and stuff you are using on your ipod. the problem is that there are no photos and i swear i had like 1 gig of photos on my ipod. i hope theyre not gone.

I have a laptop running Vista which came with some Google Gadgets. Initially the Photos gadget was working fine. As I decided to get my new computer organized (a mildly OCD thing to do ) I rearranged the folders that my photos were kept in. I noticed that NONE of my photos were appearing in the sidebar any longer so I clicked the link to 'add photos' and remapped to the My Pictures folder. This didn't help so I remapped to a deeper folder in order to get it closer to the photos. This didn't work so I remapped it down to a specific folder that doesn't have any folders in it. It only contains photos. Lo and behold... It didn't work. So... I searched the internet and found one question like mine with no answer following it. Needless to say, what looks like it should be a fairly straight forward adjustment has not been so. Please, what button am I not pushing to fix this?...

Wondering if it's a problem with the new version of Firefox (32.0.1). Since I've had the new version when I upload photos to an antique website, I see the broken image icon. In Facebook, the photos just never show up. I also can't attach photos to emails, they just don't upload. I haven't changed any plug-ins and I don't have any extensions. This doesn't happen in IE. Any advice or suggestions?

Anyone remember the old way Windows would show photos in folders, a ton of thumbnails?

How do I get that back so I don't have to hit preview 500 times to find a photo?

A:How do you view photos in a folder

First thing I would do is to right-click on the folder that contains the pictures and then select Properties. On the dialog that comes up, select the Customize tab. There is a dropdown box there that you can select to tell Windows what kinds of files are in that folder, in your case select Pictures.In addition, in any folder, you can change the view and select how you want to see the files listed. In the Upper right hand area of the Explorer window there is an icon that looks like boxes with lines next to them. If you hover over that icon it will show "Change your view". If you click on the icon, each click will cycle thru the available views. On the side of the icon is a down arrow. If you click on the arrow, it will bring up a list of the various views you can select from.

For some reason the photos on our pc view too dark. It's done that since we got it. It also prints the images too dark. The images/photos are fine if viewed/printed through the photoediting software that came free with the pc (Photo Impression). If I get a photo attached with an email it views too dark also.
I'm wondering if it's Vista as we didn't have this problem (with the same photos) on our old pc which was Windows XP and I've added some to our new laptop which is Windows 7 and they view normally there too.

We've just got Photoshop Elements and whether I transfer photos from the original file on the computer or upload them from the camera to PSE they view too dark there too. However that problem I think is besides the main point - I think if I can somehow sort the original problem then PSE will be ok too.

Hey everyone, I hope this is the right area to post this.

I recently just upgraded to a new computer that's running Windows 8.1 and had all my media files (mostly photos and text documents) from the old XP computer saved on an external hard drive. I plug the external HD to my new computer and can access the drive itself, but I can't view nearly 90% of the content! Videos and music files seem to work fine, but none of the photos or document/text files will open, which are the most important to me.

The document files say "access is denied" and can't be opened and when I try to view the photos it says "Windows photo viewer can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permission to access the file location". Even when I try to move or copy&paste the files out of the external HD, it denies me.

How can I fix this problem? How do I get permission to my own files? I tried to "take ownership" of the drive...but I'm not so confident that I'm doing it right because I haven't been able to find any instructions on doing it with Windows 8.1 ... and what I'm doing still hasn't helped.

ANY help or suggestions that anyone can give me on how to get permission to view all my photos/documents again on my new computer would be awesome. I'm a photographer so I'm pretty horrified at the idea of not being able to access my photos. The drive itself works fine and all the files were acce... Read more

I have had issues viewing photos since upgrading to Windows 7. The message I was getting in Photoviewer was:cannot view photos in photo viewer because you do not have correct permissions. I followed the instructions in a 2007 string from TheOutcaste and ran the command: icacls *.* /reset /T /C in the folder where my photos was stored. This made it possible for me to see approximately 80 to 90 % of my photos which is GREAT. However, I still have a fairly large number of photos which are not accessible unless I go through the tedious manual task of assigning myself as the owner. I've run the command again and can see that on those photos which cannot be seen that there is a notation that access was denied. Any additional ideas on what I might be able to do in order to "release" these photos in mass...and not manually one at at time?? Thank you in advance. skyglover

I've never had an issue connecting my canon camera and uploading pictures until recently. I took a bunch of new pictures and i can upload them just fine, But when it comes to viewing them or uploading them to the internet i can't do anything unless I'm in the canon application. And even then i cannot upload my photos. Even worst it's not just the recent photos, Now it's all of the photos ive ever uploaded to my computer. When i try to view them it says the element is not found. They aren't corrupt seeing as how i can see them just fine on the computer as well as in the app for the canon.

Why is it when I bring up picture folders in XP, some folders allow me to use the scroll wheel to move photos from left to right in filmstrip view and others won't. I usually have 25 or more pix in the folders?
I can use the mouse to move them side to side but would prefer to use the scroll wheel.
It's not a major problem, I just don't know why some folders allow the scroll wheel and some don't.

Hi everyone,

I have an Android phone and a Windows 8 PC I built. I took a picture on my phone and went on my computer and the photo showed up in my Photos tile. I have no idea where the picture came from because my PC and my phone aren't linked up and the photo only shows on the tile not in the app itself. I had a similar problem with my iPhone and Android because of Google+ but there seems to be no reason for this.

Hi all,

Please help me choose tools - service provider(s) and/or application(s) - for my goals.

I'd like to start sharing privately videos and photos in some private cloud drive with a group of close people. It would be sort of electronic photo/video album. Most computers are 8" Tablet PCs, OS is Windows 8.1.

There is a question how can I view these photos/videos when one (or more) of these people is offline. The best thing would be an application which automatically caches the photos/videos which are viewed most often or "starred" or "liked" most or "rated" as best. The application would cache (for offline viewing too when there is no internet connection) those mostly viewed/starred/liked/rated photos/videos on each computer, depending on which photos/videos were watched on that particular computer.

What I plan is just keep putting all the photos/videos (probably from all the same computers) to some cloud drive, and - the best thing would be - just let the mostly watched photos/videos to sort naturally in each cache. Or maybe there is some feature to rate photos/videos (somewhat like in windows media player).

Is there a way to auto-cache some amount (let's say up to 2GB or 5GB) of the most often viewed files (for offline viewing) instead of having all of them on those devices? I'm asking this because those tablet PCs have a rather limited storage capacity (and are also limited on internet connection quite often too).

Firefox keeps asking me for the proxy username and password - on every page, often multiple times.

I've just installed firefox on a WinXP laptop and plugged it into a university LAN. The set up is all pretty default, you know: 8080, exceptions for local addresses and so on. The connection seems fine, and IE (finally) seems to be okay, even downloading from Windows Update, which was a real pain to get to work, but that's another story.

When I start up a browser, I have to give a username and password for the proxy: same when I download something or run an Active X control. This isn't too bad. But on Firefox, on this machine, asks me for a username and password for every single page. Just once for a very simple page with no graphics or Javascript, and several times if there are multiple items on the page: I have to login 5 times before it will show Google. This is really annoying - as you can imagine.

Also, the Add-ons and the extensions for firefox won't down load, but set off a dialog saying that it can't install because of download error -228. According to this may be due to a firewall or spybot incompatibility. I've got Trend Micro Office Scan client on the machine, and this works with a server on the university's server, as I understand it , if that makes any sense - I downloaded it from the IT department's antivirus page.

The Photos app on my Windows 8.1 Pro PC won't show any pictures either in the Pictures Library or in OneDrive. It only can display folders but not pictures. In other Windows Store apps, another weird things happens. The photos show up but with no thumbnails. I tried a reformat and reinstall and the problem disappeared. That is until I signed in my Microsoft account. The problem comes back. Here are some screenshots to clarify the problem.

NOTE: I'm using Hotspot Shield because an error appears every time I install Windows updates or Windows Store apps. I use Hotspot Shield to bypass this error but even disabling it doesn't solve the problem.

A:Photos app won't display any photos

I had such a problem too, the culprit for me was LibreOffice which messed up the KindMap in the Registry; so you could try to look for the Kind column and see if your pictures have the right Kind category set: pictures. (LibreOffice changed the Kind category to document and so the Photo app was not showing any pictures as it thought of them as documents not as pictures.)

I hope this quetion is in the correct forum.

One of the companies I work for has an FTP site to house various pictures and documents.
I have access to the FTP site via Internet Explorer with a user-name and password.

My problem is I am not able to "Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer". It asks for the same username and password, but does not accept them. It continues to cycle back to the log-in box.

The contact at my company does not know how to fix it nor does the company they use to host the FTP site. Attempts to check and uncheck FTP options in "Internet Options" does not help, nor does disabling my firewall.

Finally, the really strange thing is that every once in a while, it lets me through, but it takes many attempts. Unfortunately, I never know when, or why, I can get through, so usually I am stuck.

My client used their computer on 11/9 and upon returning to office 3 days later (computer had been left on, I think), the ususal username login took them to a brand new desktop with no files in the user folders. It's as if a new user had been created without their knowledge.

I am remotely accessing their machine to solve the issue and am stumped. Trying to do research and as much solving as possible remotely before actually going to client's home to fix things.

I see 3 folders under Users folder, BEARMAIN-PC is the network name for their computer, Bear is the username:
TEMP.BEARMAIN-PC modified date 11/12/15bear.BEARMAIN-PC modified date 10/26/15bear modified date 10/13/15

It appears that upon windows login to the only defined user called "Bear" on login screen, I am using the TEMP.client-PC folder of user files.

"bear.BEARMAIN-PC" has the most recently worked on files, with most recent edit date of 11/9/15, and the
"bear" folders have dates of 10/26/15.

I have no idea what happened here in clients absence (left town on 10th), the only thing that might've been running is Carbonite backups to a locally attached external drive, Dropbox, and my remote access program. In effect, I have a duplicate of everything on hard drive filling it up to all but 5GB, though the "bear.BEARMAIN-PC" is a larger size and more current file dates so I'll assume that's the one I want to keep.

Is it have to do with the F drive?

How can I fix this, it driving me crazy for too long!!

You could go into the windows event viewer and look in the security log. If you right click the security log then view, and then filter. Choose security for the event source. You will see different categories to choose from (Account Logon/Logoff might do the trick). There should be some other filter options too.

Ok, here's the background. My wife's pc (identical to my own, and running on Windows XP)was restarting at shutdown recently on it's own and I saw an error that said there was some kind of driver error. So, I uninstalled the nvidia drivers in hopes of installing the most recent ones. I don't know if this was the issue, but I was troubleshooting and I noticed that there was a recent driver update.

Well now I can't log on at all, because when I get to the windows login screen, the mouse and keyboard won't work. I see for an instance the cursor shows an hourglass, then nothing. I see the blinking cursor in the login field, but I can't type anything in there, and the mouse doesn't work.

So, I tried to do a system restore but it just sent me to the login screen, and no mouse or keyboard function persisted. When I tried to go into safe mode, it asked me what was the boot device I wanted to use (which after some searching I see is also an indicator of a problem, but I'm not sure what it means). I picked my HD and continued to do a restore to the last working config, and the same deal, can't login, no mouse or keyboard use at that sceen.

So, I tried going into safe and it shows both an administrator icon and my wife's user name, and I can't try either because again, the moust and keyboard aren't working here either!

I tried to boot with the windows xp disc in, even picked the boot source from the boot menu as floppy and again as the cd-rom. I read that doing so can sometim... Read more

Hi. I see that a couple of people are having a similar issue with Facebook. My problem is with Dogphoria. I can't log-in for the past week from home--my laptop at Starbucks and my work computer have no problem logging in. I did everything Shaldares suggested for beckybrooke: clear history, cookies, cache, ssl states, unplug modem/restart computer and finally tried to get my ISP to help.

Here is where I am stuck: The "help" guy at my ISP told me to:
1. Go to the [Start] button located in the task bar.
2. Click on [Run], in the blank space type "cmd", hit enter.
3. A "DOS" screen appears.
4. Type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter.

However, when I do this, I do not get a blank dos screen, only one that says
Micrsoft Windows XP...
c:\documents and settings...

and the guy at the ISP got a little rude and told me I am not following directions. Am I doing something wrong? Should I do something else?

Thanks in advance!

A:Login issue: redirects back to blank login page

Now I am having the same issue with my Craigslist account. It just redirects me back to a new/blank login screen.

ANY ideas?

I tried to install win xp pro sp3, but didnt complete installation.
next time i start up it shows, choose ur OS
windows xp professional
windows xp professional installation
default is the later with 3 seconds delay time. I tried to change this by going to
My computer<Properties<Advanced<Startup and Recovery<Settings
There i select windows xp professional as the default one and by editing it delete the text that reads as "non-execute, xp professional installation", and save the text file then apply and Ok.

Next time i startup windows won't login, but it keeps on restarting.
Tried the safe modes, couldn't login either.
Tried using the XP pro CD to Repair windows but sadly i didn't have a recovery portion disks.
As a last resort i tried to install the OS from the cd, the result was even worse, as it shows an error message as
txtsetup.sif file missing, couldnt load setup..
I have no idea what else to do now, please help me out.

Hi, I just discovered a problem with vista. I recently installed an outstanding software known as TuneUp Utilities 2009, I then used it to customize my computer login screen, I made a modification such that on startup or when no one is logged (i.e. when the login screen is displayed), in case there has been no activity for 10 minutes, vista's built in bubble screensaver begins to run. Unfortunately, when I tested this modification out, I noticed a screensaver error stating that "direct3d 9.0 is required to run this screensaver and can't be found on your computer", so I logged in and tried running the screensaver again and it worked perfectly.
Why is it not working on the login screen but it works on the desktop screen? How do I confirm the version of direct x I have installed, because I recently made an update on my direct x, I tried updating it to 10.XXX and the same problem is still occurring. Please reply asap.

A:login error, screensaver can't run on login screen, Direct X 9.0 not recognized

Click the link in my signature and under STEP 2 download and install everything there, that should solve your problems.

Hi ! Did you create a system repair CD or a system recovery drive?? Here are the ways that you can recover. My first choice would be to restore to a time before the update with a restore point! Read this by HTG! How to Create and Use a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc in Windows 8 or 10
PS! Using a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc
A recovery drive will normally not be necessary. If your computer fails to boot several times, Windows 8 or 10 will automatically bring up the advanced startup options, which allows you to troubleshoot and fix it.
If Windows can?t even bring up these tools, you?ll need the recovery drive, system repair disc, or a Windows 8 or 10 installation disc. Insert the recovery media into your computer and restart. Your computer should boot from the recovery media automatically. (If it doesn?t, you may need to change its boot order.)

When I attempt to log in to many sites (Hotmail, youtube, steam community, razerzone, thinkgeek, my bank, etc.) after hitting "login" the page refreshes to show both the username and password fields blank and I am not logged in. I'm running Windows home premium 64bit, and I'm using Firefox primarily but the issue is present in IE and Chrome as well. I think the problem is logging into secure servers, I can view https sites without issue, I just can't login.

I have tried deleting cookies, history etc.
Cookies are enabled
SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are enabled
My firewall is not the issue, I have tried turning it off/adding firefox as an exception
Time and date settings are correct
System restore does not fix the issue
Not Antivirus causing the issue

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

A:Attempting to login to most websites results in login page refreshing.

I realize you are not using IE, but it can't hurt to try it both before and after a reset: Control Panel/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset. You might also check out this tutorial: SF IE Restorator - Troubleshooting General Issues with IE

If auto-login is enabled there is NO User picture on Login screen
This issue started with Redstone builds.
This was not an issue with TH2.

Many other Insiders have reported this on the Feedback Hub.
I thought it would be fixed by now, but it still exists in Build 14393.5
