Another thing I wanted you to know (in case this might help you). When restarted the mri disabled keeps coming up and all of my folders are in lists, i change them to medium and then go to somewhere else and come back and they are back to lists. And my desktop icons are auto arranged, so I change them and when i reboot or restart it goes back to auto. Not sure if this will be any help to you.

For the icons right click the desktop and ensure that auto arrange is not ticked

[attachment=60738:Untitled.png]


Restore folders to default, if you have selected ‘Apply to all folders’, it will automatically save the changes on all the folders.
Steps to follow:

i. Open computer

ii. Click on Organize tab

iii. Select Folder and search option

iv. Click on View tab

v. Select Restore default

THEN

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    :regfind
    MRI_DISABLED

  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

OK for the icons download the small reg fix to your desktop
[attachment=60751:fix.reg]
Double click and allow to merge
Reset all your icons
Reboot and let me know if they stay there

OK this MRI thing is being a pain to track down..


A different look for it, all the files you you are running do not install and can be deleted from the desktop

Please RIGHT-CLICK HERE and Save As (in IE it's "Save Target As", in FF it's "Save Link As") to download Silent Runners.
  • Save it to the desktop.
  • Run Silent Runner's by doubleclicking the "Silent Runners" icon on your desktop.
  • You will receive a prompt:
    • Do you want to skip supplementary searches?
      click NO
  • If you receive an error just click OK and double-click it to run it again - sometimes it won't run as it's supposed to the first time but will in subsequent runs.
  • You will see a text file appear on the desktop - it's not done, let it run (it won't appear to be doing anything!)
  • Once you receive the prompt All Done!, open the text file on the desktop, copy that entire log, and paste it here.
*NOTE* If you receive any warning message about scripts, please choose to allow the script to run.

this is what it says when i try to run it:::
"Silent Runner" cannot use WMI to identify the operating system. Either WMI is missing or corrupt. If you are using Windows 95/98/98 SE, then WMI may not be installed. It can be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com/jbxe
If you are using Windows NT4.0, WMI can be downloaded here: http://tiny.url/7wd7
If WMI *is* installed, it may be corrupt. WMI is complex and its recommended that you use a Microsoft tool, "WMIDiag", to diagnose WMI on your system. It can be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com?4yj9m2q

OK we will need to run an elevated command prompt for the next bit

Go Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right click command prompt and select run as Administrator
In the black box type the following :

Sfc /scannow

Once windows has completed reboot then retry Silent runners
