I have a problem with Windows 7 showing folders (and other images) dim (and sometimes almost unreadable) after a abnormal shut down several days ago (power button to force the shutdown).
I have tried as many things as I could find to solve this problem with no improvement. Things tried include:
-Scanning by MalwareBytes, Norton 360, Spybot, Norton Bootable Recovery Disk, Norton Power Eraser
-Restoring an earlier System Image from a saved back up from November last year
-Reinstalling Windows 7 (inplace)
Nothing seems to solve this problem. I have also viewed file folders from another system on my network and the folders still show dim (and read only). They are not read only when I view them directly on the other system. So I strongly suspect that there is some issue with the Windows Registry which is not going away. I do have a Hijack This log but don't really know how to interpret the data.
Anyone know how to further trouble shoot this problem?
