for the last 5 days all my folders on my windows 7 desktop have changed to general items, including those in my pictures library, music library, and my document library after I reboot the computer. there is quite a bit of information on this out there and dozens of fixes; sadly, none of them worked. these are my attempts that failed:

can you techies give me anything else to try?

 

 

 

 

edit: I logged off so my sister could log on to her UA and she goes into the same D: drive where we keep pictures we both use and her UA doesn't exhibit this problem in there or in any of her personal folders

This happens to me also from time to time, using Windows 7 Pro. ?Each account is supposed to save user preferences, correct? If so, is there a disk-cleaning utility that is deleting preference-saving file[s]? I'm asking because that happened to me during my Windows 95-98SE days, and wondering if such can happen within Windows 7. I'm going to watch and learn from the techs here.

I fixed it myself. All I did was reassociate image files with windows photo viewer. it was currently set on windows picture and fax viewer. I also ran tweaking.com. either one of those two could have fixed it
