Hi Shane

  A while back I used your program with reset registry,file permissions and register system files checked. Everything is fine but now all of my user specific folders in explorer have a little icon over the bottom left corner of them. How do I get explorer to show just the folder with out icon (the icon is a picture of two people, head with shoulders)?

Chris

Fix for this problem is

I have seen this happen on 3 machines so far. And only 3. Those are the sharing icons. (These machines where windows 7)

Windows thinks they are shared even though they are not and they don't even show up in the share list. I have found it only shows up for the users profile and no other folders.

I would love to find out what cause this glitch. I don't know what is special about these machines that have had it happen when hardly anyone else has it happen to them. But if your willing to work with me I would like to find a fix and get it added to the repair :wink:

First lets see if any of those folders show up in the registry where shares are stored.

Check these locations

and let me know if it has anything :wink:

It is late. But we can at least take a look at a few things. :cheesy:

From reading this is it s bug for sure. (In fact one of the machines that had it was vista after all)

http://www.askvg.com/how-to-get-shared-folder-icon-back-in-windows-explorer-in-windows-7/

Quote
Prior to Windows 7, there were also scenarios in which the sharing overlay was shown inconsistently,

I wonder if somehow removing the icon database made windows get confused on what icons are suppose to appear?

This is what my repair does, but try it manually and see if it helps :wink:

S system I reinstalled had this same problem. But the customer needed it back so I couldn't spend time on it.

Here is what I found. When i tried to delete a folder with the shared icon windows would say it was shared. So you go to sharing and it says it isn't shared. In order to remove the shared icon on the folder I had to share it then remove the share.

So it seems like it something in the middle. The folders are not actually shared but Windows think they are. So this tells me we need to find out what else windows looks at to think a folder is shared. It obviously looks at more than just the registry :wink:

Looking at it closer, it only appears to be certain links i.e documents, desktop, contacts, downloads, favorites, links, saved games and searches and traces as well as everything within these folders. My music and pictures links don't.

Why only the folders under the profile as well?

Lets see if the net share command sees them.

Open a command window and put in
net share

What do you get? Or I should say, do they show up there?

OK the sharing service doesn't see them. They are not shared.

Explorer.exe thinks they are for some reason. It is explorer that gave me the message when deleting a folder with the icon and it is explorer that is displaying the icon.

Ok good we know where we need to look.

How does explorer.exe tell is a file or folder is shared?

Time for some Google :-)
