Autorun.inf Help With Opening Txt Files


I have always been using autorun files, but i decided to discover more features that it has to offer. Anyone who has any experience knows what this code does:

Shell\setup\command=setup.exe
Shell\setup=run setup

Does anyone know how to open something like a text file instead of the executable? I've tried doing this:

Shell\text\command=class.txt
Shell\text=open text file

But that just gave me an error. Does anyone know how i could set that up, and if its even possible.

Opening Files With The Correct Program

I have done something to my laptop and i am not sure how i did it. I tried to open a pdf file and it would not open. I proceeded with trying to open it with adobe reader. I figured out later that the reason it did not open is because the original file could not be found. The original file was on a flash drive. Anyways, the problem is now when i try to open a file it tries to open with the adobe reader and all the icons on my desktop are the adobe reader icon.

I think when i tried to open that specific file using "open with" it changed everything. My question is: is their a way to change it to where the files will automatically open with the program they are supposed to? Is it something simple or will i need to seek professional help?

Opening Chm Files Using Ie8

My name is hyeree kang from lgelectronics. We're developing user's manual with adobe framemaker. I have a few questions about ie8 and opening chm files. I've recently heard that ie8 creates security warning notice when i download chm files from web. And when i open downloaded chm files, it doesn't show any contents. Though our chm files have absolutely no defect, our customers may feel anxiety about opening files when they see security warning. What can i do about this problem?

Opening Pdf Files From Websites

I have internet explorer 8 installed on my pc and am experiencing error messages when attempting to download or open a link to pdf files via the internet.

Problem Opening Files On Server

We have a small network; windows 2008 sbs and 10 workstations. 2 of the workstations are running windows 7 enterprise. Only those 2 workstations that are running windows 7 are having the following problem:intermittently, when attempting to open files from the server (word and excel definitely, possibly other types) explorer will lock up. The document will not load. Only way to break out of it is to use task manager to kill explorer.exe and then reboot. Ll workstations and the server are updated with current ms updates. We don't have any errors in event logs when this issue occurs. We've disabled antivirus to no avail. Any ideas on what to look for?

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Missing Inf File For Printer

I have recent;y set up my new win 7 pc, and re-installed my old printer ( which used to run on my old xp machine ), so far so good. Printer works on my new pc. I set up my old pc in another room for my daughter, and set up a home network. I have set the epson printer on my pc to share, and can see this printer from my old pc, through the network.

The problem comes when i try to set this printer as my default printer. On my old pc, it tells me that i do not have the required driver file on my server to connect to the shared printer, and prompts me for an inf file, which i understand is a windows information prompt file. How and where do i locate this file , so my old computer can print to the shared printer through the network? Any ideas?

Cannot Find .inf Printer Driver For Canon Pixma Ip4000

I have a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit machine) that i want to print from. The laptop is wireless on a home network. The desktop is wireless as well and is running windows xp. The desktop has a canon pixma ip4000 printer hooked up with a parallel cable. I have installed the latest xp drivers for the printer on the desktop. The laptop can connect directly to the printer with a usb cable and the drivers will download automatically and it will print fine. However, i cannot connect this printer using the wireless system.

I can go on the laptop to the home network and navigate to the printer and try to install. It does an automatic search and says it cannot find the proper drivers. I can browse to the install file on my desktop, but it is an .exe file and not . Inf. I have run the .exe file and it installs too, but the printer installer on the laptop will not let me by the add . Inf screen to finish installing a wireless printer. Any suggestions?

Autorun Does Not Work

I have windows 7 as does my daughter - i have several cd-rom games that worked on xp, the autorun facility works on my daughters laptop and installs the games, however it does not work on mine!  I have tried all the help solutions and compared settings on my computer against my daughters and everything is the same and all settings seem correct. The only thing i cannot find on mine (or my daughters) is the nodrivetypeautorun command which would enable me to change the data to 91.

Cannot Open Flash Drive With Autorun

I have windows 7 64 bit on my christmas present(dell laptop). I work for a company that prohibits use of unauthorized flash drives. All authorized flash drives are password protected and an autorun program runs to prevent access until the password is entered. Someone told me widows 7 does not allow autorun on a flash drive and will not even warn the user of the issues and allow the user to override the prohibition (like pop up blocks). How can i use a flash drive with an auto run program on it when inserted into a windows 7 64 bit pc without modifying the autorun file on the flash drive required by the company?

Websites Opening On Their Own

I am getting a web site over the top of others - possible virus. The site is a video (tv /movies etc) site that brings itself up after ie has been open for a while - 15 or so minutes - and does not shut down by closing ie as it does not show up in the programs. I have only found it when asked to restore previous session. It generates over 10 instances of iexplore.exe in task manager (processes), but not in applications. The only way to stop it is to restart / shut down the computer, or take out each process although some generate themselves if left.

Folder Keeps Opening Up

Every time turn on my computer, the c:windowssystem32 folder automatically opens (full screen). Under one user account, it opens up completely, under another user account it doesn't open up but an error message opens up (about 5 or 6 times) saying that the folder should be associated with another file. This leads me to believe that the desired setting to change is in the user's settings someplace but i can't find where. Or i am wrong completely.

No Programs Opening In Win 7

I'm having a problem that is truly bizarre. I installed windows 7 professional and immediately set to work installing some of the drivers and software i would need. I used firefox to install most of the others, rebooted for each, and then i tried to open some of these up.

Most of the programs had more or less the same problem: they don't show up. No windows, task bar presence or systray icons. So i tried reinstalling, but the installers won't work either. The "invisible" programs all appear in the processes tab of the task manager when i try to launch them, load two or three mb into memory, and then stop, never making progress beyond that.

I'm at a loss - i can't think of anything that could cause this. So far, i've found that firefox, pidgin, avast! Antivirus, vistabootpro, the razer barracuda sound card configuration utility and even windows media player aren't opening (though sound works fine). Ie, windows media center and the task manager are so far the only programs i've been able to open. Everything seemed to work fine two or three reboots ago. I can't figure out what it could be - i uninstalled the antivirus software and disabled uac thinking that could be it, but still no luck, and now uninstaller don't even load.

Opening Browser Size

When i open a new browser on ie8 it opens into 2" x 13" window, when it used to open into around a 5"x3" size give or take. This is only an issue in a new browser window or a link, not a tab. When it opens into the 2x13 size obviously i can't see any content until i open it to full size. How do i reset it to open to a size that allows me to see content before opening it to full size.

Hopefully this makes sense.
I'm using vista, ie8 on a laptop.

Ie8 Opening Tabs

I was recently installed ie8 on my laptop, which i had avoided due to my dislike of the tab group system, but since (to my knowledge) ie7 doesn't have browser recovery i was fed up with it crashing and causing me to lose my entire session. So i installed ie8, figuring i could probably disable tab groups in the settings or something, and i was pleasantly surprised that i could. However i found that once i had disabled tab groups, whenever i open a new tab it opens at the far end of the currently open tabs.

When i open a new tab with groups on though, it opens up any new tab at the far end of the group, which is only slightly less annoying. I liked how in ie7 any new tab was opened next to the tab it was opened from, instead of at the far end of all currently open tabs. So i want to know if it is possible to replicate these settings in ie8, or if i should just switch back to ie7.

Ie8 Opening Links

I upgraded to ie8 recently and links do not open in the same way as they did before for a website that i use frequently. On this website, i go to a page that has a bunch of stocks listed. Each listed stock is a link and, if you click on a listed stock, it opens a new page with a detailed quote that is displayed as a relatively small window (which you can enlarge to a full page if you want in the normal manner). Before installing ie8, if i clicked on another link (i.e. , A second link) from the list on the original webpage, the info would be displayed by replacing the first linked web page.

However, after installing ie8, every time a click on a new link it opens a new web page. Hence, if i keep clicking on the links on the original page that has the list of stocks, i will end up with more and more web pages being opened. How do i change the ie8 settings such that every time i click on a link on the original page (with the list of stock links) it replaces the previous linked page instead of adding a new web page?

Opening Folders Bug

I notice this: you double click on a folder in explorer and it opens to reveal other folders, no problem. Now have you noticed that when you keep clicking on folders that the clicked folder which is showing in the open dialog window jumps all the way to the bottom so that now you have to first scroll that selected folder all the way up just to see the sub folders contained inside of it.
 
This is very very annoying. I don't want that every time i click on a sub folder it goes all the
Way down to the bottom of the open dialog box, it should stay where it is, but no, instead it
Falls all the way down to the bottom and each time i open a sub folder i have keep scrolling the
Sub folder list up, this is a pain in the buttocks and i consider it to be a bug.

Folders Opening But Not Visible

Ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders.

When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taskbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side, meaning i cannot view it. The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozilla pages) i can see the thumbnail changing. I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my-computer. Ideas?

Ie8 Does Not Allow Opening Links

I purchased my laptop with windows 7 and ie8 already loaded, i have not been able to access any link that's not on the same domain - ie8 refuses to do anything. Sometime a green bar at the bottom of the screen will make it look like it is doing something but the green bar disappears and i am still where i started. (Can't open in tab, can't open in new window, won't go in same window). Can keep clicking it but nothing happens. This includes links in my windows live e-mails.

I can copy the shortcut, paste it in the address bar, and continue, but is starting to get annoying. Any ideas?

Note: same domain everything seems to work fine, just when accessing other web-pages does this happen. (Or at least that's when i've noticed it)

Two Browsers Opening In One Window

When opening internet explorer, one window comes up, but it always has two tabs - i.e. Two browsers - each with my default home page, google. Neither browser goes anywhere weird nor acts oddly, they just sit there waiting for me to use them. Typically, to open a browser, i use a quick launch icon on my toolbar or a dedicated button on my keyboard. I have also tried using the ie icon on my desktop and have tried going to start>programs>internet explorer. Regardless of which method i use, i always get a window with two tabs.

I'm not sure when this started, but i think it was after my last windows update. Interestingly, i have a shortcut icon on my desktop for speedtest.net and when i click on it, i get one window only with no extra tab! Ditto with other website shortcuts on my desktop. This is not a huge problem, but a bit annoying as i must now close an extra browser.
