Visio files all the sudden won't open in IE. Prompts for Open, Save, Save as.

Q: Visio files all the sudden won't open in IE. Prompts for Open, Save, Save as.

Not sure what happened. The Visio files were opening just fine a few minutes ago, and now when I try to open them, IE prompts me continuously for "Open, Save, Save as." I tried all three options for the fun of it and IE still prompts every time.
Tried opening them from a remote PC and they open just fine. Can't do anything with them on my PC except view them in Visio itself.
I've tried resetting IE settings. Uninstalling IE 11 and going down to 10. Nothing in event viewer for IE.



Any ideas?

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Visio files all the sudden won't open in IE. Prompts for Open, Save, Save as.

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.)

This is a weird problem I've not seen before and I could use some help or someone to point me in the right direction. I searched the forum with no luck.
I'm assuming this is an issue related only to my machine and not an IE7 problem.
:-(

When I click on this link (or one in similar format on the same page), the new window will initially begin to open. Then the new browser instance is redirected to another site....which seems fine & the page switches to the new address, then suddenly the window disappears and the "File Download-Security Warning" box appears and asks if I want to save the file or find a program online to open it with:
Program Name: browserRedirect
Type: Unknown File Type
From: ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite.net

Clicking on "Find" takes me to the Windows File Association web page where it says that windows does not recognize this MIME type.

Here's the actual link:
//click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/stat?id=DKrkLM3KmGA&offerid=78941&type=3&subid=0&tmpid=1826&RD_PARM1=http%253A%252F%252Fphobos.apple.com%252FWebObjects%252FMZStore.woa%252Fwa%252FviewAlbum%253Fi%253D27672884%2526id%253D27672964%2526s%253D143441%2526partnerId%253D30
If I need to register a file type, I don't where to start! I scrolled through all the file types in My Computer and honestly, I'm at a loss as to what to do.
Could this be related to some corrupted mime file or something?

Hello lawrance,
Generally this is my full I.E. Reset directions >>
This should be done with Internet Explorer open (even if you are having problems with it), not Firefox / Chrome or another browser.

Click Tools or the Gear icon at the top of the browser > Go down the list to click on Internet Options > Go across to the last tab that should be Advanced >  Click on Advanced and then Reset (near the bottom) > You should get a Confirm box pop up > Tick Delete Personal Settings and now Reset.
This last part may be where the infection changed things -
 
While there > Go back to Connections Tab, and down to LAN Settings. Open this and check that the only box ticked is Automatically Detect Settings, and untick any others. Click OK >Apply if you changed anything and OK again.
 
Back to the General Tab and make sure your Home Page is entered correctly in the box. Re-set it if not, clock Apply and OK to close out
Once the settings have all been reset, Close that box. Close any other open boxes. Now close I.E. and Reboot your computer.
 
Let us know if this helped -

Hi,
My husband's computer which gets scanned for viruses every day, all of sudden cannot open or save any file. The first error message states that the file is in use by another user (this is an unnetworked laptop). When we click on Notify, it says the file cannot be found or server unavailable. This happens for every Word, Excel,... file that we have tried. I have tried to check for microsoft updates but even the temp directory cannot be written (says that it is read-only) to so I cannot install anything.

Would really appreciate some help.
Thanks
Kristine
 

A:Cannot open or save any files

Spyware is a larger threat than virus's these days. Does his checker also check for spyware? Running a software firewall?

Is your husbands account a power users or administrator? You can check this with the user console in control panel.

If you logon as him and go to My Documents, right mouse click in the right pane and choose "New" then select new microsoft word doc. Can you save it?

Question is, this a rights issue, a change in a local policy, a hacked computer, malware/spyware/virus infection or a problem with the hardware/drive.

Starting about half an hour after I turn on my computer, attempting to save a file in a program such as Paint, Microsoft Word, etc. causes the program to stop responding. It also happens with similar functions, such as using the DCC Command in mIRC. Both Norton Antivirus and Spybot get nothing. I can provide a Hijack This log if needed. Note that I have fixed this before by deleting a strange file labelled "i" that was in my System32 folder, but it has reappeared and simply comes back every time I delete it. Other strange things in my System32 folder are files called "eraseme_XXXXXX" with XXXXXX replaced by seemingly random numbers. Thank you in advance.
 

A:Can't save, open, etc. files

I would uninstall Norton and try AVG or Avast...both are free.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this problem. I have a new Dell laptop and I use Mozilla Thunderbird for email. I had the same setup on my last Dell laptop and didn't have this issue.

The issue:
I receive .tif ftp links in my email (essentially faxes from our server that I need to view). I use to be able to open or save once I clicked on the link. Usually, I would just open. However now, open isn't an option at all and save only works if I have deleted the .tif file type from my computer (open my computer, click on tools and then folder options, click on file types tab - then remove .tif and .tiff). Once I save a file and then open it from my desktop, the .tif file type is put back into my computer folder options and I have to go through the above process all over again to view another one. If I don't remove the .tif file types then as soon as I click on the .tif link it automatically saves in some temporary file that I have yet been able to find. I've searched for the document name and nothing ever comes up.

What do I need to do in order to be able to open the .tif links immediately without going through the process above?

Your suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

Check your associations in your folder options.

Says I can't open document because 'word has insufficient memory' -- I'm assuming this is related to the 62% resources free on bootup...should be 80 if i remember (this is win98) -- any ideas other than that as to why it won't save/open?

and if you agree its the resources problem - how to fix? This is my cousin's old machine...IBM Aptiva...i think it's a duron, only 64mb dedicated system memory...88 included onboard vram.
 

A:Word won't save or open files

I got system resources free up to 88% but it still won't open documents. If I open a document straight from my documents, it will open. But the 'open' command won't work in Word. I can't use the 'save' or 'save as' command.

I can open recent files though in the 'file' menu. Any ideas? Seems really weird.

Also, appears to be true in all Microsoft applications, not just Word.

This is getting a bit annoying now, I thought it was my hard drive and so I upgraded to a Hybrid, but it seems to be coming back now.

Whenever I'm using a program such as Firefox or Movie Maker, when I click browse (and launch the File Explorer API) the application locks up for a few moments and cannot be used. All other apps run fine, but I can't even open another instance of that app. What can I do to better diagnose this problem?

Thanks

A:Application locks up when attempting to open/save files?

Hello FuturDreamz,

Since this only happens when you try to open/save a file, it may be that the hard drive it's trying to access has been turned off and it waiting for it to spin back up to be turned on again.

You can test this theory by using the tutorial below by setting Turn off hard disk after to Never, and see if it still does this afterwards.

The problem is; when the Citrix receiver from Windows store is configured to open ICA files and we log into a webinterface or storefront server in IE, users  is prompted to either Open, Save or Cancel the ica file. I am not able to uncheck
the "Always ask before opening this type of file" after downloading the file. I can do thios on other file types like 7z Files. For me it seems like Windows have a whitelist of safe files, and .ica is not one of them.

Is there a way to be able to have .ica files to open auto, without the plugin in IE?

A:Not get the Do you want to Open, Save, or Cancel .ICA files or simular files without IE plugin

This was solved wrapping it into at HTA file.

Hi all,

I'm not entirely sure if these problems are related. My initial problem was that I have been unable to open,run or save files from my internet browser (Internet Explorer, I think version 7) for the past week. For example, when I try to open an email attachment the dialogue box appears asking me to save/open etc. Regardless of which I choose it will download but then not open or save to the destination. The same scenario happens for forum attachments and program downloads irrespective of file type.

Some internet searching found that most people were able to fix this problem by uninstalling AVG anti-virus software. This is when I became aware of my second problem. My AVG Free 8.0 started asking me for a licence number at approximately the same time as the first problem started. When I try to uninstall AVG Free 8.0 I get the following error:

Local machine: installation failed
nstallation:
Error: Action failed for file avi7.avg: creating backup....
Error 0x80070020 %DESTINATION% = "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Avg\avi7.avg.install_backup", %SOURCE% = "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Avg\avi7.avg"
Error 0x80004004

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a way to avoid this error message when uninstalling AVG Free 8.0 that did not require me to download another small program ( AVG remover tool ?). I've tried checking different combinations of options when uninstalling all to no avail.

Unfortunately I don't have 'Hijack This' ... Read more

File Open and File Save As dialog boxes do not show all files and folders known to be present, i.e., that show in Windows Explorer.

- This happens in all programs.
- It is not that the files are hidden or system files.
- It is not that the dialog is only showing files of a certain type.

It gets partway through the list of files and folders and stops. If I type in a sub-folder it will go to that folder, and then when I go back all the files will be shown. It is like it had to "reset" or "rescan" the file structure or something.

I only noticed this problem over the past few weeks. Don't know what might be different about my machine in that time.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

A:File Open and Save As dialogs do not show all files -- not the obvious

Have you tested by showing hidden, folders and files in folder options ?
This is usually a sign of malware but many people seem to be having it,
The problem is not many of them add what security suites they have installed or any prior security suites ?
So the issue seems to be in limbo.

I'll try to make this as concise as I can:Problems/steps taken:- Running Windows XP SP 2/Office Pro 2003.- User noticed problem this morning; some corporate patches or updates may have been applied since yesterday (not sure).- Initially couldn't open Excel files by any method. Excel would hang and the task would have to be ended.- Used Add/Remove Programs on Office 2003 and chose Repair. Didn't notice a change. Then did Change on Office components and unchecked Excel to remove it. Later re-checked Excel to put it back on.- Noticed that I could now open Excel files by double-clicking on them or opening from recent Excel files list. File | Open or toolbar Open button still make Excel hang.- Also noticed that Save As command from the file menu (or the toolbar, if you add a toolbar Save As button) also makes Excel hang.Notes:- There are no files in XLSTART under the Office11 folder or the user's profile. There are no .xlb (customized toolbar) files on the system. There are also no Add-ins running and never were.- Running Filemon.exe (from Sysinternals.com) shows that several files are not found as Excel tries to Open or Save As, but I'm not sure I see any unfound files that should make any difference. It keeps looking for shell32.dll repeatedly after it's already been found in C:\Windows\system32, where the file does reside.--------SOLUTION (my boss found this, and it worked):This was caused by a recent Microsoft patch. There were apparently also about 40 insta... Read more

Hi guys,

I have a question that has stumped me so far. Here is the scenario: I am dealing with a spreadsheet that has several tabs on it. In each tab, there are several word, powerpoint, and pdf documents that are embedded as objects. My task is to write a macro, that will for each document (keep in mind its an embedded object that needs to be opened), open it with the appropriate program, and save it using a pre-assigned name (the name of the column heading and the row it is in) to a predetermined folder path. This process needs to be duplicated about 200 times. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know enough about vba to believe that it is. I've been working on it since yesterday, and I can't seem to tie the pieces together. Can anyone help on this?

Thanks!

Hi All,

I work on a web application that has Excel and Word documents in it.

At the moment when a user opens these documents in IE9 they get presented with a dialog box asking:

What do you want to do with "filename"?

The user is presented with Open, Save and Save As as the options.

Unlike previous versions of IE there is no check box to tick to remember the user's choice so it comes up every time.

I really need to get rid to this box. Does anyone know how to disable it?

Thanks

Tom

A user tries to download a PDF from a government site by selecting a checkbox for the document and hitting Download Document button. The file download box comes up with "Downloading file... Open/Save/Cancel". When she hits Open, the box dismisses and the download progress box appears. Almost immediately, however, the file download box reappears but this time Open is grayed out, forcing the user to save it before it will be downloaded and opened. On any other computer in the office, the file will open right up. I have checked the internet settings and they seem correct. What would cause this to happen just to this one user? Or, what can I do to fix it?

Hi

Win7 Ultimate

I hope I can explain this clearly.

When I go to an Open or Save dialog box in any application and I click on any folder any where in Windows outside of the application, the Save as... or Open dialog for that application switches to that folder, which is great feature because it quickly enables me to change the location in those dialogs. It's not currently working.

My question is, where is the setting the enables or disables that functionality.

Thank you for any help

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?   Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

Ok. I'm on XP, am using a network connection to the internet, with either Cable or DSL (I can't remember), My compy is a Laptop (Gateway), and the only things that I download are from OverClockedRemix, a videogame music site. (for the record, it's cool)

Whenever I hit Save, or Open, on both Paint and IE, the save/open box will close, as well as the program, after the computer stops making the 'thinking noises' (the HD and stuff) . IE: I open Paint. I want to load in a picture, so I hit open. When it opens, and the computer stops making it's 'thinking' noises, it closes Paint.

Thank you in advance, and I hope I can get it fixed. It's really annoying.
Edit: It's now doing the close on the My Pictures folder. This is beginning to suck.

Hi

We have a site which contains a csv export file. We know this site works fine - it does for all other users and has done for ages. When you click the link, you get the usual 'open' or 'save' dialog box. However we have one user, who receives an error when clicking on 'open'. (see attached image). Microsft Excel has already loaded up in the background.
It may be worth mentioning that this is on an https site.

I noticed this is the same problem as found at: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f56/...e6-336294.html

Has anyone got any thoughts/suggestions?

I'm using IE 10.
I'd like to disable the prompt "Open, Save or Save as". Each time I tried to any document (ex. DOC or PDF file), IE will popup the follow prompt: "What do you want to do with ..."

A:How to disable "Open, Save and Save As" prompt

Each time I tried to any document (ex. DOC or PDF file), IE will popup the follow prompt: "What do you want to do with ..." 

You might be able to add Open with... to a right-click menu.   But that will probably only help for files which are local, e.g. don't need to be downloaded.  I think the reason for the prompt is essentially to help route the download and notify
users of the fact that if they just try to open it they will be opening a temporary file.  E.g. it typically always goes into the TIF first.  You could probably confirm and refine these ideas using ProcMon, e.g. looking for tests of registry
values and writes of files.
For example, I just did a BING search for  filetype:doc, did a right-click Open (as one of the other thread's responders had suggested) and still see the above prompt, because the file has not been downloaded yet.  That's IE's job so that's how
it does it, with a prompt.  But then since there is a filetype association for the .doc extension when I choose Open no more intervention is required (although as the prompt notes "The file won't be saved automatically." so if a user tries to update it,
e.g. a Word document or a spreadsheet, anything they do would only be preserved if they did a File Save As... or whatever those applications provide for that use case.)
In fact, that warning is probably the main reason for the prompt when such an explicit Open command... Read more

Hi:

When I use my IE8 to something like http://myurl/test.txt, IE automatically opens the file in the browser. How can I make it so that IE asks my user to choose either save or open? I have control over the file extension so if needed, I can make it so that it is http://myurl/test.abc in order to make IE to ask, but when I tried that, IE still opens the file in the browser. I confirmed .abc is not a known file extension on my Windows 7 machine. The content of the file is text.

I do not want my users to open and see the content of the file as it is a data file and meaningless to the user. I just want them to save it on their local machine and then use a program to access it.

There seems to be some answer on this for IE before 8, but there is no more option to force IE8 to give me the option to download.

Any help?

A:How to force IE8 and later to always ask for to save or open instead of always open

I'm currently on an old machine, so I don't know how it will go on Windows 7, but in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, if you scroll past the large types of files, where the alphabet starts again, scroll to "exefile" and in Edit Flags, change the D value ending to 00 00.
