  1. i tried something. i deleted a siv folder and i made an empty file called siv. i restarted and it was really strange, the process that recreates the siv folder deleted the file i made and created the folder on the drive. so i tried to do it again but with a cacls siv /d system on the file. certainly after this the folder weren't recreated on the drive. would it be possible to catch a system error message that it couldn't recreate the siv folder? maybe it would show what process were unsuccessful.
  2. Is it possible to collect the files needed for the new Internet Explorer and backport it to earlier versions of Windows?
  3. Thank you but i've already found this page. My problem is the conversion tables list is totally empty. I can't "check (any) box next to the code page conversion table that" I want to install, because there's none! And because of this situation I can't open/extract compressed files those contains long filenames/foldernames. Funny.
  4. Excuse me i opened this new topic but i doubt getting help in my old topic. Well, my problem is the Code Page Conversion Tables (dialog located @ Settings - Regional and Language Options - Advanced tab) became empty. I hope there is somebody can tell me where these conversion tables are located to restore them without using system restore or repair windows.
  5. Excuse me, i do an up again on this stupid topic but i think i've found the root of my problem. I've found the coherence. I realized can't open any compressed files those contain files/folders with long names (longer than 8.3). Does anybody know how to fix this? Compressed files with the old 8.3 format are OK. ---- Edit: Somebody told me something about the language options and i checked windowsxp Regional and Language Options, the Advanced tab where the Code Page Conversion Tables are listed. It was totally empty... I think this causes my problem. I don't know how to get back these conversion tables.
  6. most of zip files are downloaded from the internet but i tried to compress with winrar, winzip, xpbuilt-in - they didn't work total commander's built-in zip and freezip could compress but not decompress! there are only a few (downloaded) zip files i can open with freezip or totalcommander. i tried them on another computer and i installed a clean windows on mine - it's okay. i can open all files there. but i would like to know what causes the problem in the old windows installation.
  7. open regedit: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors Search for string: Background doubleclick type: "0 78 152" OK, restart
  8. i think the root of the problem might be this errormsg: This should mean the file cannot store the drive letter of a partition Something must be broken in the registry.
  9. if you have any idea why it's happening to me, please post your opinion. there are some zip files i can open with windows (total) commander but i get an error message when i try to open the rest of my compressed zip files. and the built-in XP zip feature opens the zip files (i can view them with explorer) but all of their contents looks like this: the filenames (foldernames too) changed to "WINDOWS" word and when i try to extract them it says "can't find the path specified" rar files seems to be empty in total commander but unrar does nothing. When i try to compress zip files with the built-in client errormsg says: i have an unrar command line version executable. it just won't run. when i type unrar to the command prompt it's blank and then quits (by default it should show the command line switches description for unrar). i tried to reinstall unrar and later i downloaded the full winrar too but its installer is a bit different (i think it's compressed too). when i try to install winrar it shows in its dialog: Extracting - Cannot create, Cannot create - Extracting - Cannot create.... and i get a windows error message (similiar to Mohammed's errormsg: "Some files could not be created. Close all apps and reboot." I downloaded WinZip but it can't open any zipfiles. I downloaded the old pkunzip - it can open rest of the zip files but sometimes it says: "pkunzip old version, this file requires v3.6!" Interesting. I tried to compare by properties those zip files i can open and those i can't but there's no information. I know a simple solution and i resolved it by installing a clean windows (it worked, the new system doesn't have this bug). It's okay but i don't like to forget such errors. I would like to know what causes it. I tried to remember what changes i made before i experienced the first error of a compressed file but there was no special changes. No virus found, etc. M$ support is useless, no information @ google... etc. It was a coincidence finding this forum with the same error message. (cfg: asus p4p800, p4-2.4-800, 2x256ddr400, modded winxpsp1@ntfs since 2004 february) thanks for your attention

  11. it's ntfs but the files don't seem to be locked because i can delete them. the associations are not broken. and i tried to restore the zip associatons.
  12. thank you for this post but the problem is somewhere else. i'm a bit experienced user but i can't find a solution. excuse me - i'm offtopic. maybe i should/will create a new topic in the adequate forvm section. there are some zip files i can open with windows (total) commander but i get an error message when i try to open the rest of my compressed zip files. and the built-in XP zip feature opens the zip files (i can view them with explorer) but all of their contents looks like this (for example a zip file with three files compressed in it): Name Type WINDOWS File WINDOWS File WINDOWS File the filenames (foldernames too) changed to "WINDOWS" word and when i try to extract them it says "can't find the path specified" rar files seems to be empty in total commander but unrar does nothing. i have an unrar command line version executable. it just won't run. when i type unrar to the command prompt it's blank and then quits (by default it should show the command line switches description for unrar). i tried to reinstall unrar and later i downloaded the full winrar too but its installer is a bit different (i think it's compressed too). when i try to install winrar it shows in its dialog: Extracting - Cannot create, Cannot create - Extracting - Cannot create.... and i get a windows error message (similiar to Mohammed's errormsg: "Some files could not be created.
