    Processor name not showing in System properties window

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) Service usually manages the information displayed in the System properties window. It could be possible that the service is not running properly that is the reason the Processor name is not displayed in
    the System properties window.



    I suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below and check if that helps:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Scroll down, look for Windows Management Instrumentation service, and check if the service is running.
    4. If the service is not running then, right click on the service and click on
      Properties.
    5. Now, select Automatic from the drop down for
      Startup type.
    6. Click on Start to start the service and click on
      OK.
    7. Restart the computer.


    Let us know the results.

  3. Info under properties not showing so files not working correctly

    Hi Beth,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • Do you get any error message or error code on the screen?
    • If yes, what exactly is the error message?
    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

    Keep us posted on Windows related queries and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you.

  4. Can't find file system properties

    Security tab in folder properties just disappeared

    Hi Nikola,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    • Is the issue specific to any particular file or folder?

    I suggest you to restore the Folder properties to default and check if it helps.

    Steps:-

    • Windows Key + E and click View.
    • Select Option and choose "Change folder and search options"
    • Go to View tab and Restore defaults.


    If you still face the issue, try running a System File Checker (SFC) Scan on the system and check if it helps.

    System file check is a utility built into the Operating System that will check for system file corruption the
    sfc /scannow command (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect, corrupted, changed, or damaged versions with the correct versions where possible.

    I suggest you to try the steps provided, in the link below in order to run SFC scan on your computer.
