Let me see if I can explain this. Since installing a registry editor called "Context Menu Take Ownership" a couple of days ago, I have had problems saving files to my desktop and accessing files located on my desktop.http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/112795-context-menu-take-ownership.html
When I choose to save a file .. save as>desktop, It takes a full two minutes for my desktop to load in my "save as" dialog box. I can't change to say "documents" until the desktop has fully loaded into the "save as" dialog box.
I then downloaded the remove "Take Ownership" reg editor at the same website above. Ran it and sure enough, there is no more option to "take ownership" of a file/directory when I right click.
However, I still have the same problem saving to or accessing a file located on the desktop, from a program (any program, on my computer, or on a website such as a "upload images") using the "save as" or trying to access the desktop to retrieve a file.
This makes me think there are some registry entries that need to be deleted. I don't know what though.
I should also point out, I did a system restore and system restore could not complete because of a registry issue.
Couple screen pics attached. One showing a blank "save as" dialog box with desktop selected. The other is the desktop fully loaded after about 2 minutes.
I originally installed take ownership because I could not get "read only" changed on a directory. It didn't even fix that. Rebooting did though.
Any help would be appreciated.
