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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I really messed up. I had created some .doc files of legal documents. I printed them, had them notarized, and scanned them, saving them as .pdf files. I now want to make some modifications. I have searched and searched, but can't find the .doc files. I'm using Adobe Reader to view the pdf files, but am not able to edit them.

Can someone direct me to some freeware that will allow me to edit pdf files? Or is there conversion software that will convert the .pdf to an editable .doc file?

Thank you.

The sound file comes form my digital camera as it has a sound only record mode. I want to edit the file and clean up the sound with something like Audacity. Problem is that Audacity doesn't handle files with such a codec.
Windows Media Player will play the files but can't save them as another format.

If I could convert them to another format I know Audacity and others can clean and edit them.

Does anyone know of software (free preferably) that can do this for 32kbps 4 bit 8kHz files?

Just play it in WMP and have Audacity record it, what could be easier? You could then save it as a WAV or mp3.

I have about 6 .mov files taken of a hiking trip on a Ion Sport Cam camera. I've been trying Free Video Editor by I have version 1.4.24. And there is supposed to be a new version available, but although the file on their site says free video Editor, its actually their Free Audio Ed.tor. Same file under their free Audio Editor. I have very little control over the video I'm editing nor can I join two of them together.

So, I'm looking for a replacement. I want to be able to join two or more .mov files, output in mp4 or mp3. Edit segments out, and edit audio, or export without audio.

I did do a search on here, but the programs mentioned were 2 years ago.

If you fx have received an open pgp encrypted file, encrypted using your own public key, you
should be able to decrypt the file.
Same way, you should be able to open pgp encrypt a file on your computer, using an imported public
key, and then send the file.

There isn't one application to do all of this. You're going to need Audacity for trimming and normalization, and CDBurnerXP Pro for writing them to a disc. Both these programs are free, FYI.

Hi there

Why can't people be more honest on their websites -- as well as making it harder and harder to find REAL downloads without confusing extra offers / links to other programs with the real link buried deep down in an easy to miss website - I really hate the following that seems to be commonplace now -- FREE DOWNLOAD which implies FREE -- but the SOFTWARE most certainly Isn't but totally no mention of BUY / PAY on the site.

We should BOYCOTT those sites and make our feelings known --nothing wrong about people wanting to make a few bucks - especially these days with good jobs getting harder to find -but we can still be OPEN.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

And cannot find any traces. In fact, I searched through the entire registry for the values "Blog with" or "Email with" and nothing turned up.

I know very little about Windows Registry other than not to touch it. These changes seem quite extreme. Can someone tell me what they are basically doing?
The software company is being a little coy. I just want to understand what I am doing.

Any assistance appreciated.


A:Registry edit required to get some software to work.

Hi there

IMO the SOFTWARE providers should do all this in their install setup. The only time you should have to make registry changes should be for an emergency fix and even then they should be able to send you a .reg file which will do it automatically.

I'd be very loathe to purchase software from someone who relies on the END USER to make registry edits -- if you make a mistake you can easily hose up a system.

I have 3 photo edit/print programs on board, all of which worked perfectly under windows 7. However, since upgrading (?) to 10 I now find that none of them work properly, various problems, particularly printed image size. For instance, I wanted to print a 6" x 4" photo at actual size, but could only get it to print to full A4. After much fiddling & cussing I thought I had managed to get it to behave, only to find that it would then only print out at 3" x 2"!!! I have literally spent hours trying to solve this problem, can anyone help? Is the problem with the software or is it the printer/laptop setup? I use an Epson XP-700 printer if that helps.

A:photo edit & print software not working correctly with W10

Hi and welcome to the Ten Forums!

What photo edit programs are you trying to use? Each program may have its own printer setup menu with settings that you can adjust. Then there is the print software that comes with the Epson Printer which you may have installed as well.

Pay attention to page size, image size and what resolution the image is set to (pixels per inch). Depending on the software there may be check boxes for print full size (fill page) or actual size.

Download a file management program called Total Commander.

Set the created shortcut's properties to "Run As Administrator".

Configure it like in the screen shots 2&3 and F4 should open most any file to edit.
It 'defaults' to using Notepad for an Editor, but you can configure it to use
any editor[hex or otherwise] to open the file of your choosing for editing.

The occasional prompt for permissions may pop up.
When that happens, I just choose 'Allow' and I'm in like Flint.

Some files are 'locked'.

Still unable to even SEE, let alone OPEN any of those $files.

I managed to put several files in a Zipped folder I guess you call it. Anyway I have to use a password to open each one.
Now---I tried to edit one of the files(delete and add information) and it does it but when I close it it goes back to the original information. Tried several time.

In short,--How Do You Edit a Password Protected Zipped File? Not too smart here, so explain clearly. Thanks

A:Edit Zipped Files

Are you extracting the zipped folder, password-editing-saving and then zipping all the files again? Many programs can read a zip folder and extract a copy of one of the files inside for use but it kind of goes against the rules to save an edited version of the file still zipped because it probably won't compress back exactly as before and would corrupt the whole zip folder.

The solution is don't zip files that need to be edited a lot, just password protect or encrypt only, otherwise unzip-edit-new zip on all files involved.

Hiya Shaleradon
To view or to remove the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003 or in Windows XP
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
To view the syntax for the Attrib command, type attrib /? at the command prompt.
Warning If you remove the Read-only or System attribute from a folder, it may appear as a ordinary folder and some customizations may be lost. For example, Windows customizes the Fonts folder and provides a special folder view that permits you to hide variations, such as bold and italic. It also permits you to change the folder's view settings in ways that are specific to fonts. If you remove the Read-only and System attributes of the Fonts folder, these customized view settings are not available. For folders that you have customized by using the Customize tab of the folder's Properties dialog box, the folder icon and other other customizations may be lost when you remove the Read-only attribute.

If a program cannot save files to a folder with the Read-only attribute, such as My Documents, change the Read-only attribute to System by using the Attrib command at a command prompt.

To remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute, use the following command:
attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>
For example, to remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute for the C:\Test folder, use the following command:
attrib -r +s c:\test
Be aware that some programs may not operate correctly with folders for which the System attribute and the Read-only attribute are set. Therefore, use the following command to remove these attributes:
attrib -r -s c:\test

Win7 has this neat feature where I can navigate into a compressed (zip) file from Windows Explorer. The icon appears like a folder with a zipper through it & I can just navitage where I please.

However, I can't edit a file in the zip folder directly. I have to first copy it out of the zip, edit it, then copy back into the zip. What am I missing here? If I can overwrite a file why not just allow me to edit it?


A:Unable to edit files in ZIP folders

Zip is one of the several existing formats for "archive" files. These files are typically compressed to save space and simplify data transmission. Although Windows treats them as folders (a feature that I personally prefer to disable), they are not really folders. One can extract files from an archive or add files, but I've never heard of a possibility to edit files still in an archive. Maybe there is a third-party software that opens an archive, un-compress it (i.e. unzip) to some temporary folder, then allows you to edit files in this temporary folder and at the end puts the archive back together (i.e. zip the files from the temporary folder into a new archive of the same name). But I don't know any. Maybe someone else can suggest something.

A:Can openoffice read and edit Word files?

Well, very simple, you have both installed.
What's your problem, you can test it yourself before you uninstall Office 2003.

As fas as I know it's compaitble, and surely with the older Office versions as is 2003.

Since I have installed the fresh copy of XP Pro, all my program settings and files have been in a disarray. I had to set up the Email account from scratch and hence lost all my previous e-mails. I had emails from 2004 all the way to 2007 sitting in one of my folders called .PST. I was somehow able to import them into the freshly installed Microsoft Outlook.

What I am unable to do is to import the 2008 email that I believe are sitting in one of the folders namely outlook.pst, backup.pst, archive.pst and backup.pst.

Hi there. So I just got my fancy new laptop with Vista with SP1 on it. Here's the problem though: it will not play or edit .avi files. Yup, will not play them in Media Player, and then will not let you do anything at all with them in movie maker. It says that there is a codec missing... which is fine and good and all, but the problem is I can't seem to find where to get the codec anywhere. I've just found a lot of dead ends. So if anyone out there knows how to fix this problem... like where to get the codec so I can actually do something with the 40+GB of .avi files I have, it would be greatly appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] Vista won't play or edit .avi files

hi there and Welcome to TSF Vista Support

i would download K-Lite codec pack



p.s... pray for my mom
