  2. with windows 10 why can't I name new folders on my pc

    thank Mohammed and Annu for your help ! I was able to find and access SFC command Prompt admin. I did as you told me and typed in sfc scannow . But it said ( windows system 32 resource protection did not find any integrity violations ) my next question
    is ( why does it say windows 32 system when I have a 64 bit system? ) does this have any thing to do with why I can't name my files ?

    Thanks ,

    Try giving (copy/paste) %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts in the Run dialog and choose Notepad to open.
