    location is not available help

    Hi
    after receiving windows updates i get this location is not available
    c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\desktop refers to a location that is
    unavailable. it could be on a hard drive on this computer.or on a network.
    check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are
    connected to the internet or your network and then try again. if it still
    cannot be located the information might have been moved to a different
    location. {i am connected net} it happens when ever i try to d/l anything to
    the desktop.

    thank you i have vista home premium

    Try this. Go to C:\Users\(You) and right click on the Desktop folder and
    choose Properties. On the Location tab, click on Restore Default. Then go
    to C:\Users\Public and do the same for the (hidden) Public Desktop folder.

    Has this issue been resolved? I have a client that is calling me about the
    same message. I want to gather as much information about this before I sit
    down behind her notebook.

    We have the same problem. if you discover the solution I'd appreciate
    very much if you could post it in this forum (in plain english). Thanks
    a lot. I have Vista home premium as well.

    Re: location is not available help

    (i hope this helps) I was downloading some files using Bitlord and when
    i tried looking for them they couldn't be found. I got the same message
    as the one posted above...

    C:\Program Files\BitLord\Downloads\-filename- refers to a location that
    is unvailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a
    network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that
    you are connected to the internet or your network, and then try again.
    If it still cannot be located, the informaiton might have been moved to
    a different location.

    Anyways, all I had to do is go to the folder where my files were
    supposed to be and click on the "compatibility files" tab and there it
    was. So everytime I have to access this files I simply go to the folder
    where my files are supposed to be and click on the tab called
    "compatibility files" so i can fully see my files. I hope this helps.
    BYE!!!

    Hi, I'm new to this site, but I was having the same difficulties w/"this
    location not available". I followed the directions to "restore"
    defaults" and it has worked so far. I was trying to use an SD Memory
    Card and the drive wasn't there... after restoring, I put the memory
    card in the computer and it found the card! :party:Thank you!

    The solution is Very simple ..
    Restart your PC and as soon as it reboots press F8 continuosly(on and off).
    It should land you to a screen with many options to start windows like
    -starts window normally
    -Last known good configuration that worked..

    Etc Etc..

    Choose last known good configuration (using arrow keys ) and press enter..
    Your windows has restore your settings now...
    Enjoy..
    Hope and wish the solution should work for all..
    Best of luck..

    If this worked jus say hi on the next reply...

    Re: location is not available help

    I FOUND OUT AN ANSWER!!
    alright it's either one of these.
    Go to my computer then C:\Users\
    then right click on whatever your username is.
    Hit properties
    then hit advanced, and hit file is ready for archiving.
    I think that's the one that did it, but if that doesn't work,
    go to security, and change every one of the users and people in there
    , and check every single thing. It will say it denies it a few times for awhile.
    Hope I helped!!
