Files cant be found Tags: Storage Last response: December 27, 2012 1:08 PM in Storage Share wmpenn December 25, 2012 10:46:58 PM When I download any file off the internet or even try to save a picture from Reddit/Facebook, I go to open it and it says Windows can not find C:\User\XXXXXXXXX\Downloads etc etc It has only been doing this for the past week or so, and the PC is not even a month old. What happened? Now even some Windows files wont open. I went to the Registry Director (Regedit.exe) and even that wont open. It says Windows cannot find C:\Windows\regedit.exe I cant open about 90% of the files on my computer because it "cant find the file" it says to retype the name carefully and try again or make sure I spelled it correctly... Virus Scans show nothing malicious on the PC edit: Many of my files cant open. I have basically only been able to open games, no other files/applications beside Chrome More about : files found wmpenn December 26, 2012 3:10:47 AM update: Even core files like diskmgmt and others will not open m 0 l discordian December 27, 2012 1:08:52 PM Your hard drive might be corrupted, you'll probably have to do a re-format. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
