Restore previous folder windows at logon not working?


oneguy2046

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

(1) Before installing ASC 3.3.3, the function of ""Restore previous folder windows at logon" works fine in my PC (WinXP SP3 eng). However, after installed ASC and did the "CARE" fixing, this function doesnt work anymore.

 

I have the "Restore previous folder windows at logon" ticked, and have checked the appropriate registry entry (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\PersistBrowsers) is set to 1 (in Hex) as it should be, but when I logon, my previous folder windows are NOT restored. Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

(2) Morever, if i keep enabling this ""Restore previous folder windows at logon" function on, my PC will get me an alert of "The application is failed to initialize because of the window is shutting down" when I leave some folders opened on desktop when doing shut down. Until I closed all opened folder, no alert will be prompted when doing shut down. So I m quite sure may be the registry fix from ASC corrupted the registry.

 

I did try the restore function by Restore Center from ASC but still no improvement.

 

Also, does it necessary to turn the system restore (mine is turned off) on when doing restore center?

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Many thanks.

Hi oneguy

In the handling of folders mine is set to show both but handle as a single file. Option #3 down.

One should never use the Care button the first time the program is run.

Mentioned in the manual and explained in

Online Help for IObit Software

 

Have you tried

Performance

"Let Windows choose the best settings for your computer"

This window can be reached by writing sysdm.cpl in "Run" or

The Windows key + Pause/Break Opens System Settings and then you choose the tab Advanced and the button Performance - Settings

Or you can right click My Computer, choose Properties - the tab Advanced and the button "Settings" in the Performance section.

This can sometimes restore settings that the System Optimize has changed, but you will then have to place that "problem" in the Ignore List the next time you run System Optimize.

There are further possibilities in that window if you want to experiment a bit.

 

I am pretty sure that it is a System Optimize setting that is the culprit in your case, - one that should have been looked at during the scan when it came up as a "problem" and there marked and placed in the ignore list.

Hi Solbjerg,

 

First of all, thanks for your reply.

 

I hv been applying "Performance --- Let Windows choose the best settings for your computer" for my pc. However, the problem of not able to enable the function of "Restore previous folder windows at logon" is still there. The problem is not that i cannot tick the function (in fact I ticked) but the issue is whether it's been ticked or not, still no folder can be restored after restarting the OS.

 

I would like to seek your advice on checking the parameter of the system optimization. So I attached a few pictures of the scan cap to see if anything can be spotted to resolve the problem.

 

Current, my "Performance" is just set to Custom with only 2 functions are enabled - (1) use drop shadows for icon labels on desktop & (2) use common tasks in folder. In fact, I had tried disable them all but the problem is still there (i.e. cannot restore the folder).

 

Once again thanks a lot.

Hi Detailer,

 

So in a nutshell,you check the box for "restore previous...)and after you run ASC(and hit Care or repair) you go back to find the box unchecked? <----- My case is that I checked the box "restore previous..." and after running ASC (and hit Care or repair), the box is still checked actually, but the function doesn't run anymore.

 

And moreover, an alert of "The application is failed to initialize because of the window is shutting down" comes out everytime when I leave some folders opened on desktop if I do restart.

 

Thanks for your advice once again.

Hi oneguy2046,

 

I didn't really thoroughly study your problem and might be off on this suggestion, but you said "any suggestion," so here I am. :-)

 

Shouldn't that be set to 1 in Decimal and not Hex?

 

Just a thought.

hi CrazyTim,

 

thanks for your reply but it does not work in my case cos' I tried ur suggestion in Regedit.exe; however the parameter automatically turns back to Hex right after I shifted the Hex into Decimal; which means i m not able to turn the parameter from Hex into Decimal.

 

Meanwhile, i dont know if the parameter should be hex or decimal in fact. I just searched it from internet so after all, i set it into hex.

 

thanks.

Hi Tim and oneguy

I just wanted to say that all the numbers up to 9 are the same in hex and decimal.

Hex: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F then jumps to 10 (16)

dec: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 then jumps to 10

 

FFFF in Hex would be 15*16³ + 15*16² + 15*16 + 15 = 65535

 

2^16 = 65536 precisely the maximal number of cells in an Excel sheet (at least up until Office 2003)

(which means that you are able to see all currently available space (FFFF) for unicode characters in their right space in one sheet)

Yes I liked the quote - it was such a subtle funny joke!

Hi Tim

70 117 99 107 32 121 111 117

U+46 U+75 U+63 U+6B U+20 U+79 U+6F U+75

 

The opening of the message from you friend in ansi/ascii and the next line the same in Hex.

Could come in handy in some situations :-) :-)
