CD Rom opens software cd's with a .cda extension

Q: CD Rom opens software cd's with a .cda extension

CD Rom opens software cd's with a .cda extension

I'm not sure what I did, but now when I try to open a software cd, the cd rom tries to open it as a .cda file. Any help would be great.


Preferred Solution: CD Rom opens software cd's with a .cda extension

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

as far as I can remember this abnormality started to happen as I ran Dreamweaver?s uninstall sometime ago. Inside of the folders containing .htm files , rather than showing IE?s icon , the ?non existing device to open this kind of file? icon is shown.
I am used to name files on sites I create employing the extension .html only for the index.html and all others are named with extension .htm.
It is been very hard to test for the correct linking if the files refuse to open.
I?ve tried to right click over a .htm ,then ?file > open with > choose program >always employ this program to open the file? , to no avail.
Many years ago I had problem alike and I was taught by a moderator in a forum to edit a line on the register, but I can no longer remember which was the line (moreover it was on Windows 95 time).
I ask if someone can help me out with this trouble.
Thank you all very much.

I have just been to Powerquests website to view some demonstration videos. They claim that the videos are "easy to view".To give you an example I went to http://www.powerquest.com/support/primus/id2166.cfm and when you hover the mouse over one of the tutorials, the file has a .snt extension. If u click on it, it brings the download box up. The one I downloaded was only a 576k zip file, but it unzips to 5700k! with an extension of file extension of .snt. So much for the "easy viewing" Have they never heard of .avi or .wma? Many thanks Chris

A:What app opens files with a .snt extension?

I did a search for it on google but I found all sorts of results, sent mail files, template files, the works. Here, Windows doesn't appear to know what it is either. And, I can't find what it says on any of those two links.
My reccomendation would be to emailing the PowerQuest support staff and asking them what it is. It may be an error that they have to fix, or it could open with a program they made.

I had a picture sent to me with the extension .enx at the end. Named like "picture.jpg.enx" I tried acdsee, adobe CS2 and paint but none will open it...can't seem to find anything myself. I tried dropping the .enx and it won't open. Tried changing it to .jpg, won't open. It's also a very large picture, and a professional image. It's about 8meg as well.....I'd really like to see this picture, can somebody suggest a program that will open it? Thanks all.

I have made a very large error. I was trying to open a python file that is saved as a .dll and I left the Always use this program check box checked. Now, I am trying to make it where there is no default program or any program to open this file because there are many types of .dll. I have tried deleting the extension and unassociating it. How do I get whre there is no default program that opens any .dll extension.

A:Change the default program that opens .dll extension files?

Uninstall Python. That should dis-associate it from .dll. Then reinstall.

I've been alternating between zipped programs and installers. This played havoc with program associations. Uninstalling worked.

Have a quite old program that ran on previous PC which used XP.
Would like to get it going again, if possible

Tried all the compatibility screens and wizaards, and it seems like one problem "might" be that W7 can't handle one of the program file xtensions called: .INS

I did a Google, but all that seems to come up are a multitude of sites that want to sell Registry scans, etc.

Is there a place anyone can recommend where I can obtain the extension inexpensively or free, to install ?

And, if i can get it, what do i do with it ?
Where do i place it, etc. ?

Much thanks as always,

A:Obtaining Software Of A File Extension ?

Hello Bob,

The file extension in itself should not cause a program to not run on win7.

I can find 12 references to programs that have used the .INS filetype

Alphabetic File Extension List

what is the actual program you are trying to install - if it was designed for XP then unless the program deals with system level access or is specifically written to only work on XP one of the compatibility modes should work.

another option if you have Professional or Ultimate Win7 is XPmode

One other option is to convert your existing files into a newer format and/or find a program that is win7 ready that can read the files or file conversions

I'm not sure wich adblocker currently i should use?
I have a lifetime license for Adguard but i´m not sure if I should use this or should remain with the browser plugins?

A:Adblocker software or Browser Extension

I use the Adguard extension for more than 3 years now and I'm very happy with it. It is light and blocks everything it needs to block. It also has some protection against bad/malicious websites. I use the extension, since I don't need the desktop version. I used Adblock plus in the past, but I liked Adguard much more. µblock is also a good alternative, but after trying much adblocking extensions. I always return back to Adguard.

i have a very, very old digital camera. i of course installed the software that came with it. the problem is that every time i transfer pictures from the camera, .jpg files keep getting registered with this digicam's program (which is called 'image expert'). i want jpg's to open in internet explorer like they normally do. i keep having to delete the old association and create a new one.. then i've to go into the registry so i can get the thumbnail views working again.

there is no file association setting in the digicam's software. is there any way to stop this from happening? or has 'image expert' created a hopeless situation?

A:digicam software keeps taking over .jpg extension

try the following.

Go to a .jpg picture and 'Right' click it. *Don't open it, JUST right click the unopened file*

From the menu choose 'Properties'.

Near the top is an option saying 'Opens With'.

Select that, then look through the list of programs it brings up.

From there you can bring up the default opening program of your choice - Internet

Explorer is in the list as is 'Windows Picture and Fax viewer' [which you might want to try out if you haven 't already].

The important part of this procedure is directly below the list of programs in the dialogue window itself-you'll see a line saying;
'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
**** Tick the checkbox you see there to make it your default opener for all your .jpg pictures.

Windows 7

I ran the Sfc /scannow and I show no problems

All I have to do is move the mouse and all kinds of windows start opening.

It appears to me that the opening software is not related to where the mouse cursor is located.

I can access the command line.

I have run Malwarebyte, Security essentials, spybot thinking I might have some kind of problem.

Is there a virus or malware with symptoms like this?

I cannot do anything on the desktop, because as soon as I move the mouse onto the gui things start popping open. If I do click on control panel another software will open over that location and I cannotdo anything there.

Safe mode is about the only way I can use the mouse.

Any suggestions...

I installed a program called DHS which runs with SQL 2005. It installed fine and works properly with the user account having admin rights, but as soon as I remove the admin rights of the account and make the user account a power user then the DHS software does not open. I have tried adding full permissions to all the installation folders of SQL and DHS software which still did not make a difference.

Any ideas how to make the software run without being administrator? Maybe something in the registry ?

Something freaky just happened on my HP laptop running windows 8.1.

Anyway, it turned on fine, I logged on the normal way and did nothing else with it for a few minutes as I had other things to do in the room, I came back to it and pugged in the ethernet to connect and perform some updates (I planned to do these before opening the browser) but when I inserted my ethernet cable firefox (my default browser) just suddenly opened (as soon as the little yellow triangle had gone from the flight mode/connected by wire/disconnected icon in the system tray firefox was opening.

EDIT: Problem seems to be solved, read second post before this one
I'm running Windows XP, and my computer is having incredible virus issues. Fake "windows" pop-ups keep appearing telling me to download the latest anti-spyware software to protecty me from an attacker (and they are often laden with typos), and continuously try to connect to their homepage through Internet Explorer. I've been able to run a successful Spybot S&D scan which led to many things including Virtumonde, a Zlob. thing, (EDIT: I also remember Smitfraud.)and some others which I can't remember. As I tried to delete them, Spybot froze + closed and didn't solve the problem. Ad- Aware crashes mid-scan as soon as it finds 2 harmful files in the registry (and the computer resets itself!) After the reset, the computer says "Exception processing message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c".
When my computer first was infected from a fake download I was told by Spybot that an important registry was being changed (something beginning with an n, it was a bunch of letters) and I allowed it (stupid of me) and then it popped up again with a registry called "autoloader" and I accepted again, . Then all hell broke loose and I just kept clicking "deny change" as I was being battered with registry changes and browser key changes and whatnot.
Just now I am getting a KernelFaultCheck message from Spybot in %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

It seems the shortcut keys are messed up. Did you get this issue before?
By default, Win+R is used to open Run command, and Win+E for opening Computer. It seems these shortcut keys are changed. Now, if you press Win+R or Win+E, which windows will show?
If you figure out which application used this two shortcuts keys. Right-click the application, choose Properties - Shortcut Tab, what's behind the Shortcut key box? Change it with another shortcuts key.
Also fully scan your computer, and if you have a backup, a system restore could help you come back to a nearlier time.

I got a idea for a Chrome extension, but no where to request it. When you install extensions in Chrome it places all the extensions to the right side of the address bar. My idea is to have a extension bar below the bookmark bar that automatically hides it's self when the mouse isn't hovering over. You can keep the chrome browser screen estate but not have your extensions obstruct room, making things look cleaner.

Issue: Each time we click on a hyperlink to a open PDF in Internet Explorer (either 9 or 11), it opens the PDF normally in the Adobe Acrobat client (my default application to open PDFs), but it also opens a
second blank IE page that I can't seem to make go away.
Disclaimer: to me, I believe this is limited to an internal website from our vendor since because it only started happening since their latest upgrade, and it does not happen for other websites. I believe it
is the way their website is scripted, but they state otherwise, and that there must be Adobe or Internet Explorer settings that are causing this. So, I am checking to make sure I did not overlook anything. Any suggestions are appreciated!

I've been trying to look for a solution to this problem, and I think this site seems to have the most comprehensive, free approach.

This easylifeapp search opens in a tab when I start up chrome. Also, I am getting ads (pop-up, text that has a link to click, text that has images that pop up), which is unusual since I use AdBlock for Chrome. It doesn't seem to be affecting IE, but I almost never use it. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing Chrome, but that has not seemed to fix it either.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.

First off I'm running Win8.1


Well I have a Gmod server and I'm trying to convert some of these gma files with a converter.
I need to open the file with the converter to have them convert but whenever I would choose to pick the converter it would still be the same and not open it or change it.

I got tired of trying to figure stuff out and messed around in the regedit which was bad and what I did was:

(I had this done EXACTLLY like the gfx key, but I fixed the gfx one and changed the one below it as an example)

And then what happened after I restarted my computer was this:


I just fixed the gfx file to what it looked like before, but I still need to restart my PC to see the changes which I will inform you how that goes.
What I need help with:

Well if the regedit doesn't fix I'd like to know how to fix that and have it set like it was before if possible

And I'd like to know how to fix the problem where I can't change what application a file opens with.
Thanks for spending your time and reading this, and or your help.

I will post all the screenshots below and additional info

My computer has gone crazy, and I cant use it, so i am sending this from an internet cafe.
Basically, it starts up, wont let me either open in safe mode to system restore, wont let me press[del] to enter start up mode.

Suggestions pls, I presume I need a boot disk, can I get one save it on CD and use it that way ??

All suggestions welcome, as I am stuck!!!


A:Xp Opens, Then Closes, Then Opens, Then Crashes Etc..

Hi puertorico, welcome to BC!A little clarification, when you say wont let me press[del] to enter start up mode do you mean that you can't enter the system BIOS utility (the thing that comes up before Windows) or that you can't get to the boot menu (where things like "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration" are shown) by pressing F8 before Windows loads?If you have your Windows XP installation CD, then that's all we'll really need to fix this. If not, then there are some alternatives we can discuss.Post back soon!

Dear friends
I got far more complicated issue than ''Windows 7 photo viewer does not open any picture file'' which only part of my problem.
In detail, I had a hard driver problems with ultimate-7 64bit which started the viewing problems also I cant copy move the data I can see but no touching, then all data disappeared from E driver. So I took to local IT shop they who restored the files in question, but could not make them readable or openable. The files can be moved copied but can not be viewed, this was an improvement to as it was before.
I bought 2 new 'seagate momentus xt' hard drivers re installed all, everything working,,,, but my AutoCAD projects, my images 12 year of data are all not readable, I have it on portable driver, I also copied to new installed drivers for safe keeping but files are not opening.
The files are the same size as originals, has all info can see extensions 'jpg, tiff, and dwg drawings' but they are locked, images has green square box window viewer but no thamps or icons it is not a single file but 10,000 images and 100 drawings etc all not working,,opening.
I tried:
Picture Doctor
PhotoRescue PC
VG JPEG-Repair Online
Digital Photo Recovery [Demo]
Non of this worked, it looks like my case is far more complicated than restoring a single or 2 images, my professional collections are in danger.

My pc i7 720, 6gb memory, 1gb 9800gt, window-7 ultimate 64bit.

A:No file opens, no imge opens,, please help

It's no use trying recovery software on files which are already visible.

Just to be certain that the problem is, or is not, related to your PC, try opening the files on a different computer (obviously you'll need to install Autocad to open Autocad files on a different computer). If they open OK on a different computer, your computer needs sorting out & there is nothing wrong with the files. It might be best just to re-install Windows if it's really messed up, which I think is the case.

Using Internet Explorer 7.0 - I use a website that has links that open up into a new window, and a Quicktime video comes up... I'm using a lap top that I've had for almost a year, but haven't used online much... anyway, when I click on the link, a new window opens, and the video begins to play.... but the original window also changes to the video, so they are BOTH playing, at the same time. How can I change it so that the new window opens and plays the video, but the original window stays on the page where the original link was selected?
Additional Details
I've been going to the site using both Firefox and IE7 on THIS computer with no problem, but the problem is with the OTHER laptop... The site is lynda.com - but for the above reason, I don't think it's a problem with their site. Where, on IE7, can I find "preferences"? Is there such a thing?

A:Click on link, new window opens AND same opens in original window

Look under Tools in IE and click on Internet Options. Look in Control Panel under Folder Options as well. Hope this helps. Jazz

I've been experiencing this issue and at last I was able to solve it yesterday.

Right Click to Google Chrome exe file, select Properties. In the opened window
select Compatibility column, Set Compatibility Mode to Windows 7. Mine was set
to Windows XP SP2, that was the problem...

For more information go to:


A:Chrome does not work, no web page opens. Opens as a blank page.

If you had already solved this issue there was no need to create a new thread for the solution. Your post

Google Chrome doesn't work anymore ...

was sufficient. You can mark this thread as solved now.

I'm running Windows 2000 and sometime during the past couple of months the extension .ink has appeared.

For example, on the desktop I have a folder "Shortcut to Rotas" showing as
"Shortcut to Rotas.ink".

Under "Start", there is:

Windows Update.ink
Set Program Access and Defaults.ink

Under "Programs", there is:

Yahoo Messenger.ink
Acrobat Reader 5.0.ink
Windows Media Player.ink

and so on.

I would be interested in any ideas you might have as to why this is happening.

Thank you.
