    Computer - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 Explorer

    Thanks, Brink. Problem is more basic. I can do 4 or 5 easily, but when I try to change permissions for 6, I get the message: "Unable to save permission changes on ShellFolder. Access is denied."

    Computer - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 Explorer

    No "Attributes" key under "ShellFolder." How do I add it? I've run regedit as Administrator but still don't have permission to add key. Thanks

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    True. But I do access a Netflix site: https://signup.netflix.com/entrytrap. I've also tried Microsoft Community and Netflix forum and also contacted Netflix support by phone. So far, no one knows what that "something" might be.

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    Just had a long phone conversation with a very nice NetFlix support person, who had no solution to this apparently very rare problem. Think I'll close this thread and start a new one about entry traps. Many thanks to all. Steve

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    Thanks, Tepid. Glad things are working for you. In my case Netflix loads into an entry trap in my browsers.

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    W3C Markup Validation Service provides the following for blank Netflix webpage: 4 errors and 8 warnings Errors found while checking this document as HTML5! Address given as https://signup.netflix.com/entrytrap. So Netflix is loading into an entry trap. This happens in Windows 8 but not in...

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    Netflix page loads with a blank red screen with no place for login info. There's nothing blocking Netflix, just something corrupting login screen. This happens in Windows 8 with Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Opera. No problem with Linux or Windows 7.

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    This has nothing to do with NetFlix player app. I don't do streaming.

    Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

    Since upping to Windows 8, can't log into Netflix account in Firefox, IE, Chrome, or Opera. Get totally red screen. Add-on bar (in FF, for example) shows connection activity and then "Done." Checked firewall, HOSTS file, and AV for blocked sites, but this one apparently not blocked...

    The problem seems to be solved by disabling the Ghostery extension.

    Solved Firefox 17 & 18 theme and LastPass problem

    I've submitted this question to Mozilla forum and I'm still waiting. In Firefox 17 and 18, a non-default theme is replaced by default theme and LastPass is deactivated when I close FF and restart computer, but NOT when I restart FF within Windows 8. The theme and extension are easily...

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    I'm sure that, a couple of years ago in Win 7, my system was corrupted by some kind of malware. I guess I was hoping for some miracle cure. I'm now convinced that refresh or clean install are the only options. Many thanks to all, Steve

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Thanks, SIW2. The Classic Shell configuration puts the drives in the start menu, but when the file explorer starts up in an "open" or "save as" situation, for example, I still get the limited selection of folders in the navigation pane and have to enter the drive and folder names manually...

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Don't have "run as administrator" option. Tried "take ownership," but that didn't work.

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Restore_Computer_registry_entries.reg gave me the following error message: I'm the administrator. I tried refresh (repair/install) a few times in Windows 7, where the problem originated. It failed each time at the very end of the process. Instead of trying it again with Windows 8, I'll...

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Classic Shell is nice but it doesn't solve the problem. There must be a missing or corrupted file or files in my system not fixed when I upgraded from 7 to 8.

    Thanks, SIW2. I'll give it a try.

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Unchecking Show all folders makes no difference.

    Add "Computer" to Win 8 file explorer navigation pane

    Thanks to all who've responded. Show all folders is checked. I think the problem has to do with something that happened in Win 7 that continued after I upgraded to Win 8. I can work around this, but it's annoying, and I'm not quite ready to do a clean install of 8. Just wondering why...
