  1. Windows Various Features Not Working


    After attempting to move a bunch of files I have run into a problem whereby attempting to open File explorer causes the taskbar icons to dissappear and then reload after a short time, File explorer can only be opened via the trash bin as of now. Additionally right clicking on a file while file explorer is open causes it to crash. Attempting to unzip a zip file causes it to crash. Attempting to run cmd.exe as admin from the start menu fails, but manually navigating to the shortcut by opening file explorer from the trash bin is a work around.

    I recently enabled the Windows subsystem for linux, if there is a chance that is the cause. Additionally running sfc/scannow has indicated that some files are corrupted. It also appears that third party tools for unzipping files still work, and the problem appears to be only with those native to Windows.

  2. Windows 7 top feature request list leaked to the public

    With Windows still managing to find its way to over 95 percent of the desktop computers sold each year, it's not surprising that one can find plenty of people interested in giving their feedback about what future versions of Windows should be able to do.

    A few years ago, before Windows Vista had even shipped, Microsoft sent out a wish list form asking people what features they would like to see in the next version of Windows, currently code-named Windows 7. The top wished-for features in this list were recently leaked to the public and have popped up at various sites (e.g., Neowin). While anonymous sources at Microsoft tell us that they bear no relationship to the actual feature set Microsoft is currently writing for Windows 7, the list does provide interesting insight into what the Windows-using public most wants from Windows.

    The features are listed in no particular order, but they break down into various categories depending on what part of Windows the feature request falls under. Many requests for improvements in Internet Explorer, such as a session restore function, are fairly obvious wishes for features that already exist in competitive products such as Firefox and Opera. Other suggestions, such as a tabbed Windows Explorer, look for features from web browsers to migrate into the general user interface.

    Some of the feature requests are clearly unrealistic, such as the desire to "back up" Xbox 360 games to the PC (yeah, I don't think Microsoft will be doing that one). Others are minor user interface enhancements that would be nice additions but wouldn't really change the Windows experience, such as a progress bar when hibernating the system. However, there are a few that make good sense and would be welcome additions to the operating system, such as a built-in video and audio codec manager.

    A Windows 7 insider who wishes to remain anonymous told Ars that the leaked feature list was gathered before any real development on Windows 7 was started, and readers should not expect to see requests from the list necessarily implemented in Microsoft’s next major Windows release.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
