For your folder problem, try this registry fix:

Code: [ Select ]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
@="none"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\open\command]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\
 00,5c,00,45,00,78,00,70,00,6c,00,6f,00,72,00,65,00,72,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,\
 65,00,20,00,2f,00,69,00,64,00,6c,00,69,00,73,00,74,00,2c,00,25,00,49,00,2c,\
 00,25,00,4c,00,00,00
  1. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
  2. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
  3. @="none"
  4. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\open\command]
  5. @=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\
  6.  00,5c,00,45,00,78,00,70,00,6c,00,6f,00,72,00,65,00,72,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,\
  7.  65,00,20,00,2f,00,69,00,64,00,6c,00,69,00,73,00,74,00,2c,00,25,00,49,00,2c,\
  8.  00,25,00,4c,00,00,00


Copy and paste this into a text file, save it as "folder.reg". Double click the file to merge it into your registy. Don't worry, these are the default values for these Reg Keys.

As for your second problem, I'm not really sure.

were you trying to use System restore for your restoring to an older point? Because system restore rarely works, i find it to be completely useless so i have it turned off now. i have a ton of free space on my harddrive now that its off.

It's easy to mess up the icons and such fooling around with the file properties. I've done it myself. :)

Code: [ Select ]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"
  1. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
  2. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\DefaultIcon]
  3. @="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"


Just make a .reg file and merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot for this to take effect. I can't remember...

I usually keep it disabled but on occasion I will enable it for certain things.

Is your hard drive nearly full? I've heard that can cause problems with System Restore. You might try disabling it for all drives and then re-enabling it. That will clear out all the restore points. Might be worth a try.

No, the regfile name shouldn't matter.

Actually, I've tried changing the drive icon on my system with that key and it always stayed the same. I'm not really sure what the deal is with that.

One thing you might try if you have TweakUI:

1) Launch TweakUI :P
2) On the left, select repair (It's at the bottom)
3) Select 'Rebuild Icons' in the drop-down box and click 'Repair'

Not sure if that will work for those fussy drive icons.

A work-around that should help you customize your Drive Icons:

Code: [ Select ]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"
  1. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
  2. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon]
  3. @="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"


The above code will set your C drive Icon to the default. You should be able to use whatever Icon you want, however. You can also do this for any drive you have: CD, Floppy, etc. Just add another entry to the above file for the appropriate letter. Example:

Code: [ Select ]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\D\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"
  1. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
  2. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\C\DefaultIcon]
  3. @="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"
  4. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\D\DefaultIcon]
  5. @="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\shell32.dll,8"


That will set both C and D to the drive icon in Shell32.dll. Again, you can use a custom .ico file if you like. This does work on my system.

As always, back up your Registry before making changes.
