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.

RE: location is not available help

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!!!

Re: location is not available help


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! arty:Thank you!
