I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I downloaded some Microsoft updates, rebooted, and now my Microsoft Works Calendar won't come up. I've been to MS website and tried their fix - it didn't work. Next option is to delete Works and reload. My question is - will this deletion get rid of all of my data files along with the program? Also, is Outlook Express part of Works? I've tried to find out, but can't. I'm really concerned about making a mess of things.
 

A:Solved: Microsoft Works Calendar -works cannot access one or more files.......

Outlook Express is not part of Works.

What version of Works do you have and is it supported by Windows XP?

firstly about two years ago i was making a game when suddenly my computer slowed down to the point where it took 15 mins to load a working version of windows. about half a year ago my dad got it to work faster after a bout 3 installs after that i estabalished a network with my new PC then the old one stopted working. so i resorted to my dad's other pc(i couldn't get the file transfer on that one either). a few days ago i got my old pc to work properly but now i am having trouble getting a file share on Windows and even Ubuntu but so far i would just like to know how to fix this probvlem on Windows.
 

A:it works, it breaks then works to the point where i can't share files

Really need more information to be able to help.
What is the make/model and operating system of each computer?
How are they connected?
Do the compuiters show in each other's Network display?
Can the computers ping each other by IP Address and Computer Name?

This is a general trouble shooting guide for simple problems.

Each computer must have a Unique Name.
Each computer must have at least one user account with a password. Vista will not share with computers that do not.
All the computers must have the same Work Group Name.
File Sharing must be turned on for each computer.
Firewalls must be configured to allow sharing.
To Turn on File Sharing.
For the XP computers go to Control Panel, Network Setup wizard.
Click next.
Click next.
If you are running wireless, the ethernet card will be listed. If connected by ethernet and you have a wireless card it will be listed.
For right now, just select "Ignore the listed connections".
Click next.
Select "This computer connects to the internet by a residential gateway".
Click next.
Enter the Work Group name.
Click next.
Select "Turn on File and printer Sharing"
Click next.
Verify all the information is correct.
Click next.
I would select "Just finish the wizard" and not make a disc. It take about the same amount of time to run the disc as to manually enter the data.
Click next.
Click finish.

Vista Computers.
Not sure where to enter the Work Group Name on Vista. Been a couple of years and my wife is using it right now. Lost the file I had with all this info.

Go into Network and Sharing Center.
Next to your Network Name will be a listing of "public" or "private"
"Private" will allow any computer connected to your network to access shared files on the Vista computer unless Passwor Protection is enabled.
"Public" requires a duplicate account/password to be created on the Vista computer for another computer to access files.
Select options you want to share. Shared Files, Printers, Media Files.
Password Protection. This option requires that a password be entered before a computer can access files or printer.

I was using an OLD version of Microsoft works....4.x on my XP system.

I just bought Works 9.0 from Microsoft and Installed it but it won't let me open my old Works files. I've searched for a converter but they say they are for Windows 98 systems.

Anybody have any idea how I can open my old files in my new works program?

Thanks in advance!

Hi all.

My dad recently updated his business laptop. His old laptop was using Windows ME with MS Works 4.5.
His new laptop is using Windows Vista with MS Works 9.0.

I have transferred all of his old files that he needs from his old laptop to his new one, expecting the new Works to be able to open the old files.
However, Works Word Processor 9.0 is unable to open any of the older 4.5 files!

Here is the message I get when I try to open the old files using MS Works 9.0;

Now this is really important because he is unable to access letters, etc. that he really needs to open!

Does he need some kind of converter or something?

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
 

A:Please help! How do I open Works 4.5 files with Works 9.0?

I've just found out that Works 9.0 cannot open Works 4.5 files.
My only option is use Works versions 6 - 8, which can open the 4.5 files.

It's really ridiculous that Works 9.0 cannot open these files.

I have found a Works 7.0 CD so I might give that a try.

The thing is, my dad has since created new files using this Works 9.0. If I "downgrade" to Works 7.0, will it be able to open the 9.0 files?

I am setting up a new desktop for a friend which comes with Works 9 pre-installed. I have transferred a large number of documents from the old machine using Windows Easy Transfer. Many of those files have the extension wps having been created with an older version of Works (although he cannot remember which!).

Works 9 on Windows 7 cannot open those files; and the Works converters available from M$ are not supported by Windows 7! So how can I open those old wps files in Works on Windows 7? Is the only way to obtain a copy of Works/Word which will read the files and save them as .doc files (a real pain because there are hundreds of them!) Btw I have set up a virtual machine using VMPlayer to run old software on XP so I could use that as a means of conversion if push comes to shove.

Thanks for any help and advice.

A:MS Works can't locate necessary files

Short of reinstalling, not much. This application is supposed to allow you to move applications and make the necessary registry changes. You will have to see if it is any help to you since I haven't tried it for this sort of use. Be very careful if you try it because it was not designed for this specific purpose and could really mess things up.

Change of Address 2.0

The only other alternative is to edit all the entries in the registry manually, if you could even find them all.

You might try right-clicking those recovery CD's and choosing "Explore". You may be lucky enough to find the installers for those applications separate from the rest and be able to run them separately by using their individual installers to just reinstall over the top of your current installations without losing anything.

A:Recovery Of Lost Files? WORKS?

It's not very clear what you did or how you lost files, but if you think thay are still on your drive, shut down that machine immediately before they get overwritten by new data.

Then boot with a CD that can look for the files while Windows is not running, like:
Parted Magic disk partitioning, PC repair, and file recovery tool (Bootable CD or USB image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.
Testdisk is on that CD.

We are using IE 11, and cannot open word or excel files in SharePoint library by Office 2013. The OpenDocuments class add-on is enabled. And only one computer has this issue.

Windows 7
Only Office 2013 - version 15.4631.1000
Internet Explorer - IE11.0.9600.17207 update 11.0.10 (IE 32-bit)
The error messages is: "To open this document, your computer must be running a supported version of Microsoft Office application and a browser that supports opening files directly from the Office Online"

Thanks in advance!

A:SharePoint cannot open files via IE 11, while chrome works well.

Hi,
This issue occurs because the SharePoint OpenDocuments Class (OWSSUPP.DLL) Internet Explorer Add-in is the wrong version due to having multiple versions of Office on the same
workstation. To check the version open Internet Explorer when the error is showing, go to Tools, Manage Add-ons. In Manage Add-ons click on SharePoint OpenDocuments Class and notice the version is any version other than 14.0.
The details can be found and solved at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2540922
Meanwhile try to reset the Internet Explorer, by resetting Internet Explorer settings, you return it to the state it was in when it was first installed on your computer. This is useful for troubleshooting problems that might be caused by settings that
were changed after installation.
a. Close all Internet Explorer and Explorer windows that are currently open.
b. Start Internet Explorer.
c. On the Tools menu, tap or click Internet options. If you don't see the Tools menu, press Alt.

d. In the Internet Options window, tap or click the Advanced tab.
e. Tap or click Reset

I am using Microsoft Works Word and it cannot open .doc files which are old Microsoft word documents. It says "There is not enough memory to open file XXXX. Close your document, close other programs and try again." Is this suppose to happen? I have to use Abi Word to open my files now.

hi

just a curious question... on my Dell work laptop, i don't have any system files on the root of C, like io.sys, etc, and this is on a Win 7 Pro 64bit installed from a "system repair Dell DVD".

On my home pc instead where i have win 7 Ultimate 64bit, i do have some files on C's root.

having said that everything works fine.. just curious, where are those system files?

or it depends by how the installation was made?

tnx

A:C root folder no system files (but everything works)

Is the work PC set to show hidden and operating system files from tools/folder options/view menu in Explorer?

With that enabled on my Home Premium installation, I show 8 items, but not io.sys.

I was experimenting with controlling access to my own created windows folders by doing the following; right click file >properties>security>edit>deny full control...

I did this on an empty folder and it was easy to set back to original state, but then tried it on a file with some fairly important stuff in and now when I click to open it says; "you don't have permission to access this folder"

How do I regian access, or set it to its original state?

Thanks.

A:Converting WPS or Works files to Word Documents

WordPerfect and Works are 2 completely different animals -- although last time I looked, Works word processor files did have "wps" extensions. Which program are you actually using?

(Whichever, you should be able to go File > Save As, then set an option for file type [to save as] -- if there's an RTF option, Word should handle the output ... although you may lose some features if your original file is, err, "elaborate")

Hello tanuj20 and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry you're having these issues.

Are you able to start your computer in Safe Mode? If yes, see if you can install, update, and run a full Malwarebytes scan. It sounds like malware may have taken over your computer for so many things not to work at the same time.

Which files are you not able to open? It's possible you no longer have ownership rights due to damaged or corrupt system files. You could try running a System File Checker scan. If any problems are noted run the scan two more times, rebooting between each scan.

If you're still having issues you could try to take ownership of a problem file using this shortcut here. Do not try to take ownership of the entire C: drive. It will also help if you post your system specs as well as any specific error messages and/or error codes you receive. I'd also suggest not trying to change things in the registry without first knowing for sure what you're dealing with and making a backup.

I uninstalled Norton System Works 2002. I wanted to install a new virus program instead of NAV that was included in NSW 2002. I used the Uninstall routine that came with NSW. After I uninstalled I installed my new virus program. There is no problem with the new virus program but there were some files left over from NSW. I now get annoying pop up dialog boxes indicating that some files cannot be found. These are all file names left over from NSW. I went to Symentec's website to see if there was a KB paper that would clear up this problem, but found nothing. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get rid of these annoyances?

Now when I drag a movie file into chrome it creates a download window in the bottom of chrome like any other file download, and then if I open it from that it just opens my default video player and plays the movie file. Does anyone know of a way to view local video files in chrome browser like you could in windows 7? Thanks for any suggestions!!!

A:Works word processor files not searchable because of embedded nulls

Hi Donalds, welcome to the Seven Forums.

It's years since I have even seen Microsoft Works, I am afraid I am not able to tell you how to search files with those embedded nulls.

However, if I recall it correctly Works can also save using the Rich Text Format (.rtf). If so, you could try if the document content is searchable when saved as .rtf. If so, you would not only solve your issue but also make your documents more interchangeable, as the .rtf files can be shared, opened and edited with almost every modern word processor.

Trying to remember the various features of Microsoft Works word processor, I think I'm not too much wrong by recommending you the Windows 7 native WordPad word processor, to use it instead of Works. WordPad has all features needed for composing, editing and formatting complex documents. It also handles embedded images very nicely.

Someone else suggested that this is b/c the creator of the audio recorded it in stereo instead of mono. Click to expand...

The person who suggested this is quite correct. Unfortuantely, since the files were saved as mono, the only thing you can really do to solve the problem would be to edit the sound files using a program like Audacity.

Below is a link to show how to change the files from Mono to Stereo using Audacity.

I have set up non-password protected sharing, and it works fine overall - I can see everything she shares, and vice versa, printers work, etc.

The only problem we're having is the photos. Whenever I add new photos they don't show up until I re-share the folder. If I put new photos in a sub-folder, the sub-folder is visible and can be opened without errors, but it appears empty until I re-share the entire photo folder.

I cannot find any information about this problem, but it just occurred to me that I gave the guest account read-only access to the photo folder instead of full permissions. I guess that's one thing to try when I get home, but I would like to keep it read-only so that nothing happens to the pictures accidentally.

Any other suggestions?



this is vistas own protection, since you are adding the files at a later date, the files and folders are shared individually, so even if you add the photos to a shared folder, the photos wont be shared as they werent included when you shared the folder initially, just right click the new folder and just share that folder, you are just adding the folder then and all its contents to the shared network.

Hey, I wanted to free space for my C Drive because it only has 148 gigabytes to my D Drive cause it has 1 terabyte but then when i did so everything stopped working and now I don't know what to do, I can only get google to work through my start menu, I cant even open any files in my computer to back it up or change to factory default. If anyone knows how to fix this please Tell em :C

A:I Moved All My C Drive Files Into My D Drive files and nothing works

 You can move DATA, but not application programs.  Even in the case of data, you have to go back and update the default locations of where the apps will expect to find it.  In the case of applications, the only way to move them from C: to another partition is to uninstall, then reinstall them.  This includes but is not limited to anything in the Program Files and Windows folders.
 
Good luck.

I did not suspect that this was a virus.  But while Google-ing for a solution I came across a post here that resolved the issue. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/511425/virus-scan-failed-in-chrome/
 
Nasdaq in thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/541399/chrome-reports-virus-scan-failed-on-all-downloads-ie-works-firefox-works helped me remove all the viruses and malware, but I still can’t download with Chrome with the virus scanning turned on.  Nasdaq also believes that there is a problem with ‘Security Center” because FSS.exe run as Administrator cannot report on multiple security features.  The last FSS.log will be posted shortly. 
 
Is it possible to get Chrome to download and scan these downloads?  Or will I need to reimage this machine?

A:Chrome reports Virus Scan Failed on all downloads, IE works FireFox Works

The fact that Internet Explorer and Firefox aren't exhibiting this problems makes me suspicious of Google Chrome being corrupt.
 
I would try uninstalling Chrome in the Control panel under Programs and Features.
 
I would then type regedit in the Search programs and files box and press Enter.
 
When the registry opens click on Edit and then click on Find.
 
In the find search box type Chrome and then click on Find next.
 
This should show up as highlighted in blue, right click on this and choose delete.
 
Do the same with Google Chrome.
 
Now download Chrome and install it and see if the problem still persists.
 
Warning:  Do not make any other changes other than those I've suggested.  A wrong change in the registry can result in your computer being unresponsive.
 
Edit:  I will not download anything to my computer unless I know exactly what it contains.

Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process.

Hi, I'm a forum virgin so please be gentle with me.

I have a desktop and laptop sharing files and an internet connection via modem to D-Link router setup.

My laptop connects to the network via a Netgear PCMCIA wireless card when mobile and via an ethernet cable when sitting on the desk.

The wireless connection does everything it's supposed to do (network and internet access and sharing).

The ethernet connection only shares files but can not get an internet connection to be established.

I have Norton Internet Security but I think everything's alright with that otherwise I wouldn't be able to connect wirelessly. Correct? Are there different IP setup's for wireless/ethernet.

Why can I 'see' my desktop's files and share the printer via ethernet but I can't establish an internet connection unless I go wireless?

Everything's fine with the desktop.

Sorry for the ramble and thanks in anticipation.

Edit: I fixed it. Turns out I didn't let the scans complete and that they really needed to be run from within the original user account, not a secondary one I had created after the infection. I was able to run the software from within the account by right-clicking on the shortcuts and then clicking Run as Admin. After letting the scans go all the way through, the problem was fixed.

A:Windows 7 install stuck at 0% on "expanding files" but works off USB

I assume it has to do with the burn speed. If burned at anything higher than 1x, there is a chance of the disc being corrupted.

Hi I hope I'm putting this in the correct forum I have been trying to find out why I am not able (Windows windows I in 7 works open but explorer FTP can't files x64) to open any ftp files FTP in windows explorer works but I can't open files (Windows 7 x64) in windows explorer using win x I can successfully open an ftp site in w explorer and browse the folders without any problems however I don't get any previews eg jpg files and if I double click on any FTP in windows explorer works but I can't open files (Windows 7 x64) file that should have an association like a jpg nothing happens although a short hourglass activity wheel appears I have to manually copy the file or drag it out onto a local folder to be able to do this I don't remember this kind of restriction the last time I did it although that was some time ago and perhaps on XP but can anyone shed some light on what might be wrong here I have no such problems via an ftp client but would like to get this quick method working for convenience One clue difference is when I right click gt properties on a file I will get a single 'general' tab that lists filetype location size and modified and then a permissions box immediately below with check boxes This seems to prove to me that the explorer is not acting as an explorer as it should but is in some other mode But as I say I can copy files out and into the window Just to eliminate a few thing I have tried this with numerous ftp sites I have had no such problems when logging in via an explorer app on my Android device Any clues would be a great help

A:FTP in windows explorer works but I can't open files (Windows 7 x64)

That's the way FTP protocol works, basically. It just allows to list files and upload/download, plus a bunch of extra fuctions, but that's all. It doesn't supports most of the features of normal filesystems that allow to do what you want.

For examples, for previewing JPGs, that would mean that it must download every single file (without user consent) to generate those nasty thumbnails. This could be a potential enormous waste of bandwidth and as such is not supported.

"Opening" a file has also no meaning in a FTP server. What actually clients do there is to download files to a temporary location and open those with local programs. This is what your Android client must be doing.
As for why Explorer doesn't do this? I would begin checking file associations to see if that one works well locally at least.

However, normally, I would suggest a serious FTP client, as Explorer is really poor in this aspect.

youtube doesn't work.. etc
absolutely everything from the internet = no sound except if it caches a file and plays that file instead.

A:Onli Internet Explorer WOrks. Nothing Else works

This has to be an internet problem. Check the connections between the computer and your router/modem - make sure they are tight. Check your phone connection between the modem and the wall socket. When you say that various programs don't work what exactly doesn't work? Do they start up okay?

If the connections are okay then try pinging a remote address. Click on "Start|Run" and type "cmd" (enter). In the box that opens type "ping www.microsoft.com" and press enter. If the net is connected you will get 4 results back. If it comes up "Timed Out" then the problem is with your net connection and not the computer.

Also, to find out exactly where the problem lays, in the CMD box type "tracert www.microsoft.com" and press enter. This will tell you how far the signal is getting before it times out. If NOTHING comes up then the problem is between the computer and router. If it gets one result only then the problem is between the router and the internet (which could be an ISP problem).

I am trying to transfer files from an old xp hard drive to my new vista drive.
I installed the old hard drive in my vista computer as a slave but now when I try to transfer files from my documents I get this error "You need permission to perform this action." I think that the files on the old xp machine were set to private. I would just put the HDD back in the old computer and boot it up to burn the files but the MB is toast in that computer. Any help is much appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to TSF.


The "error" that you received is not an error at all but VIsta's User Access Control (UAC) feature. It is simply letting you know that a system-altering change is about to occur. If you are on an admin account, simply click on Continue, otherwise enter the admin password.

This is about the area that you are writing the files to, not where they are coming from.

If you have additional questions, please ask!

Since my sister doesn't live here I cannot use LAN connection to transfer it. Last time I patheticly use AIM transfering option to get all the files. Needless to say, it was insanely slow and drove me to insanity. If there is anyway to transfer these files and folders leagally, please let me know!

A:transfering files from one pc to another

If you have both PCs at the same location, you can make use of a CROSSOVER CABLE.This looks like an ordinary Ethernet cable but has interchanged wiring to allow exchange of data in such cases.You simply ask for a crossover cable at your computer store.Make sure both PCs have an Ethernet port for this to work.Now simply link the Ethernet ports on both PCs using the crossover cable.Note that both PCs need to have the same workgroup name "My Network Places" and that they have different computer names.Also make sure, your PC can be accessed by other computers.All you have to do now, is look for your computer(computer name) through "My Network Places" on your sister's PC and your now connected to it. You can access the content your sharing on your PC and copy them to your sister's hard disk.You'll find plenty of tutorial/guides on how to set up two PCs for transferring files using a crossover cable.
