    So it goes because of ESET? Strange, I had it installed for a while. I wasn't planning on keep with it, just testing it. Anyway, I went ham and I reformatted my PC. It's all good now. No ESET then.

    PS: I tried everything on this forum, that's why I was a bit terrified. I hate when thing get out of control.

    Folder options work off of templates for folder type (General, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos).

    The easiest way to set the templates is to go to each of your User folders of that type (Downloads=general, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos) and set the folder columns and view the way you want all folders of that type to appear. Set all things the way you want (column sorted, column position, columns presented, and view - details, list, image size ...)

    When you're happy with the folder presentation, press the file menu on Explorer,

    select Change folder and search options options

    Press the the view tab

    Press the [ Apply to Folders ] button

    Repeat the process for each folder type (Downloads=general, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos)

    I think I love you. I've been looking for this all my life. Years of raging in Windows 7 because it was nothing like XP (Which I used for over 12 years) and I thought they removed it, but nope, hiding all this time over there. Pure love man. You rock.

    My fault... I was not clear.
    When I installed Win 10, my Eset Smart Security had not been installed yet.
    I did an installation almost clean: I installed win 8.1 and immediately after, I upgrade to Win 10, without installing any software.

    So, when I installed Eset, automatically I downloaded the right version for Win 10 with the Eset Live installer.
    So, I don't think there is any error.

    And my problem viewing folders started only yesterday. Before there is no problem
    Yes thats what happens. I have done fresh installs, reset and restore every time I have faced this issue and its been a month I'm facing. But everytime I used to install eset smart security 9 because I never though its causing this issue, until now.

    Searched lot over internet and found related things like "Apply to folders" in folders options, Bags reset, scancfg, Zeroaccess rootkit and etc but none helped.

    I still doesn't believe a antivirus can cause such issues but many of us who have/are facing this issue have installed eset.

    I did all the same ... no way to solve this problem. For sure is Windows related because I'm now trying a couple of portable "explorer like" program as XYplorer and Xplorer2 and with that program absolutely no problem.

    I'm using Eset since it was at the beginning and I'm very satisfied, so I'll try to contact Eset asking for help.

    I'm still thinking about this problem and I've remembered that years ago (with Windows Vista) there was a similar problem and it was caused by the number of folders that the Windows registry could remember: only 1000.I found this post in a forum and it was resolved so.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    (now it's version 10.0 so we need help by a "GURU")


    Open a notepad file and copy exactly these lines:
    Reset and delete registry keys wrong.

    Code:
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU]
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags]
    Disable the automatic recognition of folders.

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\All Folders\Shell]
    "FolderType"="NotSpecified"
    Changing the cache by setting the number of folders to remember to 10000.

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell]
    "BagMRU Size"=dword:00002710
    Save the file with the extension .reg for example folders-setting.reg
    Done this, double click on file and joined to the register by giving OK to the UAC. Reboot.
    I don't know if this may be a solution and unfortunately I don't know anyone expert to ask whether this can be a solution, so i post here!
    Maybe someone here has experienced friends or there is an expert moderator in the forum.
    Maybe Brink ...

    Thanks for clarifying, it does not sound as though ESET is causing the issue on your machine then.
    There's a neat Windows utility that will capture the steps, the only thing is that it creates HTML and the forum down't let members post HTML, so you will have to put the output in a compressed folder (.zip) and attach that folder.

    Start > All apps > Accessories > Steps Recorder

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	recordSteps.png 
Views:	53 
Size:	16.5 KB 
ID:	38418

    Launch the recorder, do your search(es), stop the recorder, save the output, than put it in a zip folder and attach the zip.

    re: Regedit - it is still version 5, no change in Win10.

    The process you posted tells Windows to not try to determine the folder type by what the folder contains (if you put a picture in a document type folder, Windows might try to change that folder to a picture type folder. I don't know if that still applies to Widows 10 though or if the registry mods will work in Win10.

    I don't think that has any bearing on the Search issue on your machine.



    Screen shots of the process you're using would help.

    Glad you found a resolution after 12 years


    I originally found it through trial and error, but I think there there is a tutorial on it (SevenForums.com\tutorials). The tuts are a really good asset - I usually look there first to see if a member has a solution to an issue on my machine. After a while you get pretty good at finding what you need (search works well if you know the MS terminology, but simple searches also return good results).

    I've seen Microsoft Windows Version 10.0 and ... I didn't realized that is now Windows 10 and not registry editor 10 ... old age makes bad jokes ........

    Opssss, you speak about search issue.
    Why?
    I admit (and it's obvious....) that English is not my language but - generally speaking - I'm normally able to understand and make myself understood, but that "search issue" let me astonished.
    I don't have any search problem!
    My problem is on the sorting order for the files in every folder on Windows.
    I set a sorting order, for example in a pictures folder I want all the pictures as large thumbnails and in modified data order. I get that order and when I leave that folder (when the folder is not my active folder or I go up in level in a different folder or I open a folder inside that pictures folder) and I reload that folder, the view changed in the default details view.
    And this happens every time and in every folder - documents, videos, pictures - same issue: folders doesn't remember how I set the display of files just before.

    It's exactly like in this video posted by a member with the same problem HERE

    Do you means screen shots of my task manager? for apps, background processes or windows processes?

    However, I wrote to Eset customer care proposing my problem, I'll see if they answer.
    And another thing seems clear: this problem affectes only the English Windows OS because I posted my problem in several Italian forums and no one has this problem.

    This is probably something curious and unimportant.
    In my research I found a utility (ShellBagsView v1.16) that displays the list of all folder settings saved by Windows.
    I've tested and it works with Windows 10 too.
    I casually noticed that in my case the latest change is indicated on the day when I have no longer been able to have folders in order defined by me.
    And ... It will be a coincidence ... the list is of 1010 folders are showed!!
    In older Windows there was the same problem when it surpassed the 1,000 folders.
    But I might have misunderstood... bit I'm so upset that still none has a fix.

    I have now a ticket with Eset customer care, I'm following a post in Microsoft, in Eset forum, on Reddit and it seems that more and more people is now affected by this problem.

    Any good news here?
