Windows 7 Unable To Delete Folder Thumbs.db

Name the new key "Explorer". There is not a single reference to "network" in this entire thread until I mentioned it. I don't know how well it works, but I'm 100% sure I've seen it documented. I'm guessing thatin a future version of Windows the Thumbs.db files just won't be generated, or thepolicy will be set to not generate them by default. http://webjak.net/windows-7/folder-cannot-be-shared-windows-7.html

Sometimes, I can click on another folder, go back to it and delete it then. It is difficult to believe you have tried "everything suggested," because if you have, your issue would actually be different than anyone else on here. I have Windows 8 on my laptop. The PC will just create a new thumbs.db as soon as the folder is opened again.

MS REALLY need to fix this annoying issue. The way the error crops up usually goes like this. I like it a lot compared to everything else so far. If I delete a single folder, it gets deleted OK.

This particular file here - Thumbs.db is a database file (.db stands for database). In View -> folder options I have also unckecked the option " Display file icon on thumbsnail " Also I went to gpedit.msc -. On "Delete File" dialog pane, Click "Yes" button.

That has been driving me crazy for so long - it's great to finally see the back of it.

First you want to deactivate the thumbs.db from being generated . Then you can re-install Adobe Reader and the problem doesn't come back. Do not forget to delete cmd.exe (not the one in system32) from drives after finished the cleaning job.

Clear and easy instructions....

However, even if you do manage to change all the ownerships and permissions, and remove the $recycle.bin folder itself, Windows will simply recreate it.

I installed Win7 shortly after it was released and noticed this issue immediately, I can even delete the entire contents of the folder first but Win7 can't delete the empty folder Windows 8 users should navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> File Explorer.

NoN, you don't need to copy cmd.exe to do that. To access the registry editor type "regedit.exe" in the Start Menu run box and hit enter.

I will admit that the problem first started when Iattempted, unsuccessfully, to rename an MKV file.

I retarted the computer and allowed Win7 to boot and did a cut/paste from the flashdriveof the filesback to the original location on my hard drive. Open Windows Explorer. 2. (Ctrl + F1) to open commands pane. 3. It helped a lot.

Having said that, I must honestly admit that the OS has improved vastly since the days of '95.
