Opening Files From A Specific Source


When using ie7 i am able to download my work tickets for my job remotely. In this i am able to open subfiles like contracts, maps etc for individual customers. Normally they will open right on my screen. But for some reason over the last 10 days when i hit the open button, it completely shuts down my ie7. It shuts my browser, my email that is depending on ie.

I downloaded ie8 to take its place but ie8 will not work on my comp for some reason. Si had to reinstall ie7 again. There is one update for ie7 that will not update sp3 info. Any ideas. I cannot use any other source to get into my company files other than ie mozilla google they will not be accepted.

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?

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?

Opening .sln Files With Visual Basic

I am trying to mod a game (half life 2) when i stumbled upon this type of file - . Sln, i have been told that windows visual opens it, so i downloaded microsoft visual express version. After installing, my computer told me that it needed to restart before it can take effect, except once i restarted, i couldn't find the program. I guess to sum it up- how do i open microsoft visual basic (i know i've installed it correctly) and secondly-  is there a program already installed on my computer that can open . Sln files?

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?

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.

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.

Specific Drive Recovery Supported Or Not?

Let the case be:-1. I have a 240 gb hdd. I partition it into three drives of 80, 80, 80 gb each. 2. The drive names are c, d and e. I am using e: drive for recovery drive. 3. Now i create recovery of only c: drive in e: drive. Now is it possible that whatever changes i do to the d: drive, they are not undone when i recover my system. i.e. If i have copied some stuff in d: drive after creation of recovery for c: drive and hadn't created recovery for d: drive, then on restoration of my c: drive will the data on d: drive be safe or will the stuff in it will also get changed?

Launch Specific .exe Without Asking For Permission

How do i launch specific .exe in win7 without it asking for permission? I set uac to high as possible because i am not bothered clicking yes a few times a day. However there are a few temperature monitoring programs i would like to start with windows without having to click yes and yes, as it takes considerably longer to have to do such things at startup it seems. I cannot find a way to cause permissions to remove this popup box, and do not want to remove the uac completely, is there any way around this?

Specific Module Could Not Be Found Using Adobe Cs4

I've tried a lot of fixes for this but i still keep getting this message "the specific module could not be found. C:program filescommon filesadobeadobe version cue cs4client4. 0. 1versioncue.dll" whenever i try to right click on the desktop or into any folder. The only way of accessing the properties is through the organize option.

Fixes tried:

http://kb2. Adobe.com/cps/408/kb408524.html

The above mentioned article includes the fix for this problem but its still coming up with the same error. I've run adobe update etc that mentioned in the article. I've also performed system restore as this problem is caused by the latest adobe updates for cs4

Please provide me a solution or the ultimate solution would be to re-install the operating system. But i would want to get it fixed without performing osri.

Specific Contact Lists Live Email

Before upgrading to windows 7, there are several functions i had that are now not functional:

1) contact lists - i used to have a "main" contact list, special contact lists i.e. , "Historical", "family" and i moved email ids into the special contact folders/lists and they were deleted/removed from the "main" list. Now, i can create the special folders, and can move email id's into the special lists, but the email id in the main contact list remains - now in two places, not one. If i delete the email id from any of the contact folder/lists, it's deleted from all of the contact lists. Surely, the techno twits (term of endearment) didn't screw up a great function of email contact folders/lists?

2) what's with the faded look of emails now? You don't have any old *** like me who find this hard to read/see? And, my husband is legally blind and even with his enhancer the fadeout on the emails is almost impossible to "see". What were you thinking? If you want to distinguish read from non-read, use a different color or anything else. Where's the option for me to get rid of this "seeing insensitive" faded/fadeout look that came with windows 7? Again, what were you thinking?

Is Anytime Upgrade Key Language Specific?

I'm planning to upgrade from windows 7 home premium to ultimate using windows anytime upgrade.

The installation of home premium is a czech version that came preinstalled with a notebook as an oem license. Unfortunately, the online purchase doesn't work due to the limitations of the online store, so my only option is to purchase the anytime upgrade license outside of windows and then enter the purcahsed key to perform the upgrade.

I'm currently on an extended business trip in asia, so i can not purchase the wau from a czech store where i originally bought the notebook. My best option is to purchase the upgrade kit via an online store like amazon.

I haven't been able to find out whether or not the upgrade kits differ based on territory or language, so i would like to make sure that i won't purchase something that won't work. Can anyone confirm that the windows anytime upgrade key purchased in an english-speaking country work on a non-english version of windows?

Cannot Edit Web Page Source

I have a web site that i edit by hand coding in notepad. I view the .html file on my hard drive, click on view and select source. I can then edit my code and change my web pages, then upload via ftp. That was until today! Now the pages are un-editable. The code page now shows up in colours with numbers in the left margin, which didn't happen before. It is not possible to edit the page at all.

I suspect that this is something to do with the windows update that was downloaded today. I was able to establish that this was security update for jscrit 5-8 for windows vista (kb971961) what can i do to make the source code editable again? This is vital as it is the website of a charity that i manage.

Game Freelancer Source Code

I understand that this is probably the wrong way to go about it but seeing as i know of no other way, then this seems the best option currently. Freelancer is a game from 2003 that has enjoyed the merits of a microsoft hosted 'global server' for many years. That support was removed over a year ago, though it may have been longer. Since then it's actually been the players, or the developer community rather, that has instead created a way to not need that global server, while still maintaining the same functionality in the game. Currently there is a strong developer community involved in the game, even with it's declining player-base.

However whilst a lot can be done as it is, many modifications to the game require such things as modifying the game's main .exe file, which is against the terms and conditions and so possibly illegal. However microsoft hasn't taken any action against such a thing. The only actual trouble the freelancer community has encountered in it's modification history has been a debacle involving a halo themed modification. So whilst microsoft has essentially removed most of it's support for the game, it also hasn't done anything to halt it's modification, something which many are thankful for.

Ultimately however, there are many parts of the game that most wish could be changed, but never can be due to the 'hard-coded' nature of such a thing, where the key to changing it is locked away somewhere that we either lack the knowledge, or the ability, to get at. There have been many requests for the source code of freelancer but none have come to fruition.

I understand this is due to a policy that microsoft has that it does not give out the source code of it's games or that the questions should be directed to the developer instead perhaps. The latter is impossible as the developer was bought by microsoft and subsequently dissolved. Ultimately the question i want to ask is:what are the reasons for not releasing the source code of freelancer when it has happened for so many other games, such as freespace 2?

Odbc Data Source Administrator Not Responding

My computer is having problems viewing my "file dsn" info in odbc data source administrator. While i can successfully open the odbc data source administrator interface, i cannot select the file dsn tab without my mouse pointer changing to the busy pointer for several minutes (hours if left running).

Although the odbc data source administrator becomes unresponsive, i can still execute and access other programs. But whenever the odbc data source administrator is the focus, the mouse pointer is busy and the program doesn't respond. The side effect (and hope for solution) is that access won't browse my odbc connections while attempting to connect to external data sources.

Access Denied On Visual Source Safe

Visual source safe creates files that are read only in the data folder. As i would prefer to have them owned by a different database (these are the ones that installed by default in vb6 [. Program files (x86)microsoft visual studiocommonvss] when there is no visual source safe created with vb6), i want their attribute set to not read only. If i switch the user account permission to allow me to do anything as the administrator (user account setting | never notify), i expect to be able to manage the file security.

However, even in dos as the administrator, i am unable to remove the read only attribute. "Access denied - c:program files (x86)microsoft visual studiocommonvssdatacrcs. Dat" using command "attrib -r *. *"

I would like to remove the read-only permission on these files. Machine is windows 7 ultimate | not networked | stand alone copy with vss 2005, accessing a vb6 source safe folder. This capability needs to apply to any situation on any windows 7 computer. Developers occasionally lose their network access for security reasons and we would like to keep them working on non-networked, stand-alone machines.

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.
