  1. Desktop Shortcuts dont work :-D:-D:-D Sorry for post this being in the wrong place but the forum is a bit compliacated. Anyway, for years I had shortcuts to My Computer, and a folder in the D drive, on the desktop, and they worked perfectly in my XP. Then suddenly today when I double click on them, I get " This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel ". Could this be something ASC 7.3 has done ??? the shortcut opens with Windows Explorer, but I cannot find that anywhere to create the association. Also they are folders not files. :roll::roll::roll: Please advise me on a fix.
  2. Hi Alicia, just for fun, could you please send me a random generator file to go in C:\Program Files\IObit\Smart Defrag 2\Skins, so I can set any skin colour. This is so simple, you might like to include it in the setup. exe. Rebards Bill333
  3. Smart Defrag 2 the fun finishing touch :-) Hi From New Zealand, :roll: I've been using SM for years now, and recommend it to everybody, but it really does need that tiny, fun, finishing touch, especially now, with 2, which has such a great GUI. :idea: An infinitely variable skin color generator, is so simple, small, and easy to include in the exe, I really don't know why they haven done it before. There are plenty of off the shelf ones available too. :razz: Presently there is only ugly black, or unimaginative white, what a choice !!! :smile: Possibly, you can direct me to a link to get such a program, and tell me how to install it. :lol: Regards Bill3333
