  1. Grayed out download status icons


    Hello, So whenever I download a file, the icon of that program is grayed out while in the download process. I looked online everywhere but I couldn't find any answer. I'm using Windows 10 on an ACER Swift 3. Yes, this is not just with this website. If anyone has a solution, I would need specific information because I have a hard time navigating my files and programs etc.

    :)

  2. Gray bar at bottom of each folder in large icons view

    • What are the changes made or things you've done before the issue start? I ran hitmanpro.
    • Do this gray bar displays on all folders and files in the File Explorer?
      The gray bar does display on all folders in the File Explorer but not individual files themselves. The gray bar only displays on all folders in view as Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, and Medium Icons. The gray bar does not show when view is either in Small
      Icons or List, or Details.
    • Does the folders and files with the gray bar can still be accessed successfully?
      Yes all folders with the gray bar and the individual files in the folders can be accessed.
    I am currently running System File Checker and will let you know if that works.

    If if doesn't work then I'll run DISM or System Update Readiness tool as suggested.

    Thank you so much.

    *UPDATE*

    The results of System File Checker says "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

    Now I'll run DISM or System Update Readiness Tool as suggested.
