That is a system file so it is OK and will be rehidden later

Are you seeing the posts properly now ?

No I'm not. That's why I'm thinking maybe its a setting thing?

There isn't anything after the word this other than an image of the Profile > Look and Layout settings that he has.

I have replicated mine (excluding the option not to display messages of those on your ignore list) here from an external source in case you can't see images on the forum servers.:

Awesome...I changed everything to what you have there David and scrolling up I can now see all the posts again. Phew...I must have changed something when I was trying to change my time like I mentioned before. Thank You Both.

Now what should I do about this other problem that I had when windows shut on me etc?

You're welcome.

I'm sure essexboy will get back to you on the BSOD.

However, that said I don't go chasing one off issues, the first time something happens, but just make a note of it Stop error code, as you did. If it becomes a regular occurrence then it is worth chasing down.
Is it happening regularly or was this the first time for this specific error ?

You could use google to search for say the first to of the Stop error elements - e.g. STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC00000005, - but you are likely to get a lot of hits for many different and probably unrelated issues.

David it's the first time I have ever seen that. And like I mentioned when I shut down my laptop I had to hold in the button to shut it down and I waited about 10 min to reboot it...and when I did reboot it a screen came up asking me if I wanted to use safe mode or regular in 3-2-1 and I really had no idea or time to get to you guys to ask the question "What should I do?" so it chose to just boot up regular. And here I am...After the 1st Adwcleaner (which wasn't in English) ran and scanned my laptop and found tons and put everything in quarantine I had the hardest time trying to get it here for essexboy to look at because the file was just too large to send anyway suggested to me. And when he suggested I download the link for Adwcleaner he had that was in English it didn't do anything at all...So I was thinking that maybe because I uninstalled the 1st one I had and it released all that was in quarantine as well. And I never got the chance to download the JT something file because that's when I stopped seeing all the posts (note to self don't change settings ever again) and so this morning when I hit reply I see he wanted me to download TFC which I already had on my laptop from last time so I just used that one and I closed everything down before I opened it up and ran it...and it basically got stuck on that item that I mentioned in the one post and when I tried to end that scan and click exit nothing happened same with when I clicked the x in the corner and then I just tried the good old control alt delete to stop and get out of it and that's when I got that BIG BLUE SCREEN with all that scary stuff. So I honestly don't know what happened or what I did and have no clue how to fix this at all  :(

You only worry about those Blue Screens when they happen often.
All of us have seen that screen but only on very rare occasions.
As long as you where able to reboot into regular mode without problems,
and the Blue screen hasn't come back, I wouldn't worry about it. :)
