Solved How to rectify file not found issue?

January 30, 2017 at 08:24:40
Specs: Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i3 2.4GHz / 8GB
I renamed my User folder using registry editor and since I've been seeing a pop-up that reads "file not found" every time I restart my PC or whenever I turn it on after a shutdown. Recently, my battery started dying on me at as high as 50%. And I don't even know what data I changed that caused that. An inexpensive solution will be most welcome. Thanks.

The regestry key was just an example, it may be diffrent on your system.
So Nothing to worry about m8.
Did you remove your nedum folder from your indexed folders?
Just remove both your old user folder and the new one, then reboot.

If the results are the same ( I failed :/
You can add you nedum folder back to the index list.)

About the battery issue, did you charge it with a diffrent charger(not from your manufacturer)?

Anyhow if your battery is dying, you might want to order a new one ;)

Change your user folder back. Why did you change it in the 1st place?

There are easier and safer ways to move your Documents and other user folders default locations. It is bast to leave the registry alone andifit becomes necessary to make changes and you feel qualified then make sure that you make a back up of the registry first.
If it was Windows 7 then I would say do a system restore to a date before you made the changes. I am not as sure on the repair options on W10 but there should be something there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Alright, please how can I perform this system restore on Windows 10 then? The problem is driving me crazy seeing that we always have power failure issues in my locality. I thought Reimage PC Repair could help me out but their license key is expensive when the price is converted to my local currency. Please tell me how to restore my PC. Any help will be appreciated.

I wanted my user folder to bear my name, that's why I changed it. I also tried to change all data in the registry that bears C:\Users\User to C:\Users\Nedum. And I particularly searched for the keyword User and renamed to Nedum in many places. Can it be undone?

In The "Ask me anything" box in the Start menu type " create a restore point" The restore menu will appear and you will have the opportunity to create a new point or restore to a previous one. The Restore menu entry point sometimes appears as a small icon on the Task Bar (it does on mine).

I have gone to the system restore settings but there's no previous restore point. That's where I have a problem now. Creating a new restore point won't help since my PC already has the problems. Please is there another way?

its probably the searchindexer, that indexes your folders at startup using the now incorrect path.

just remove it from searchindexer

1: use the windowssearch menu and type index, first thing that comes up should be the searchindexer.
2: remove the folder from the indexlist

"And I particularly searched for the keyword User and renamed to Nedum in many places. Can it be undone?"

Please I have a question. Does system restore require internet connection? And does it require me to insert my Windows 10 installation source?
Again, I would like to know how to activate or enable PCI Express: Active State Power Management on Windows 10.
By the way, hidde663 what's funny about my question?

I hope you did not change stuff like:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics\PrefTrack\TrackProfile\User

to

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics\PrefTrack\TrackProfile\Nedum

Tho i checked, and it doesn´t seem as bad as i thought initially
Still you didnt track what you changed, so no way to reverse it

Anyways have you checked the searchindexer part i suggested in #7?

Oh and System restore should not require internet access, nor does it require you to insert a win10 disc, unless you want to reinstall windows...

I just checked my registry editor and couldn't find PrefTrack in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics\PrefTrack\TrackProfile\User
What I saw is PerfTrack but there's no TrackProfile\User in the directory. Could that possibly be the cause of my PC's problem?

By the way, what I saw when I typed index in my search box is Indexing Options and from there I rebuilt my Indexed folders. I also restarted my PC but 'the file not found' issue wasn't resolved.
My battery issue is getting worse by the day, my PC now trips off around 70%. I need help before my laptop turns to a desktop that depends only on power supply from the electricity board.

Finding the solution to a problem is always the problem.

I just removed the folder from index, let's see if it's the cause. I'll restart now...

UPDATE: I restarted my PC and the 'file not found' window still popped up. I guess it has t do with my registry.
