    Properties

    I am back. My computer did something really weird now. When I double click on "My Computer" or "Recycle Bin" or "Network Prop" it just gives me the properties of the item, it doesn't allow me to get into it. HELP! <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> I did a scan disk (thorough) and everything came out fine. My sys is the Cybermax that has been beeping.

    "Cybermax that has been beeping" this can mean that the CPU is getting hot and needs to be cooled down. Check to see if your fans are ALL running. The important one is on the CPU itself. If it gets to hot you will cook your CPU.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Properties

    Is this Windows 98?

    Right-click the item and look at what is bold: that is the default double-click action. It usually is Open, but yours is Properties? Not exactly sure what would cause that, but the short-term workaround is right-clicking.
