Q: File Extension Question

I received a file in an email with the extension of .sec. I can't open it. It's should be a text document, possibly with a graphic. Would anyone know how to open this type?

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.

A:File Extension Question

.dat files are, as the name suggests, data files. The data is in ASCII format. You should be able to open these in a normal word processor or in MS Notepad.

I just purchased a program called Multimedia Greeting Card Maker v4.2 this week. When I create a card, then test it within the program, it works fine. When I save it, it saves as a .CRD file.

What is needed to open this file? I've tried everything I have, and I am unable to find the answer, via Google

TIA.

A:File Extension Question (.CRD)

Disregard this question.

It turns out I am required to send a .BAT file and an .EXE file with the card to get it to work. Wish I would have known that before the shelled out the dough. The cards does open, but it's a real hassle for the recipient.

I just discovered 20 of these files in the C: root directory in one of my computers and have never seen them there before.

This is what the file name looks like:

sqmnoopt00.sqm

through

sqmnoopt19.sqm

I did a Google search on it and it appears to have something to do with MSN Messenger 8.0. If that's the case, I did install the 8.0 beta version about a week ago - which originally worked, but no longer does. I haven't uninstalled it yet.

I have been using this same Excel file for many years. I viewed on my new home laptop 2 days ago, using a 2010 Excel Version. It was created on 2007.

I opened it on my work computer, version 2003, and now get the above error message on both machines. The file can no longer be opened.

I have tried emailing it, still won't open.

I have chenged the file type to both .xls and .xlxs neither open.

I downloaded the program on the home page of this site, and it said no file issues, no known problems for this file.

When I click Open File, it still shows where I had the file opened (the file name in lighter gray font - but cannot open.) The original file is in black, and I can open. But, get that message.

I also tried to open and fix - and I tried both options, with formulas, and without formulas, and all it opened was foreign characters.

Any other suggestions? Or is this file gone? Unfortunately, my most recent back up is 3-4 months old...

Hi there
on the download is there a SAVE AS option -- that might work if you change the default to .xls

Otherwise I think there are some xlsx viewers where you could view the file or change it to xls. (Note changing to xls will possibly remove some formatting etc).

So I recently had a case of hard drive failure in which basically nothing of value was recovered in the original directory structure, however the drive was full of .chk files from a chkdsk run. I ran a quick script to change all of the extensions to .jpg, and most of the files were in fact intact.

Many of the files, however, are either corrupt, or are simply not JPEG files, and so will not open with the .jpg extension. Is there any batch renaming application that can analyze files by their header data, and append the appropriate extension automatically for the most commonly used filetypes?

A:Batch file extension processing by file header?

Usually file recovery software does that (before the files are recovered as chk files). I don't know of any app that will do what you said though. But if you don't have too many files, use a hex editor to open them and rename accordingly. I use winhex (just for viewing though), but any other will do. Here's a few strings that may help:
JFIF .jpg
RIFF AVI LIST .avi
PNG .png
MZ .dll or .exe (at least 32-bit - dunno how they are for 64-bit or 16-bit executables)
moov somewhere in the file .mov (may not be at the beginning)
GIF89a .gif
ftyp .mp4
**\rtf1 .rtf
000001BA21000100 (in hex) .mpg (MPEG-1 at least - don't have MPEG-2 samples to test ATM)

Hello, I use Notepad++ to edit Python files which have the file extension .py such as "sample.py"

I would like to set Notepad++ as the default program to open .py files.

When I open a .py file I get the popup asking me which file I want to use to open. But I do not get the choice to set the default program to open this extension.

When I go to Settings|Choose Default Apps By File Type the .py extension is not listed.

Looking through the registry I see that there is no .py handler.

Q: What is the method to manually add a file extension and associate it with a program?

Thanks!

A:File extension not in file association list

hey I figured it out!

1) Settings - Indexing Options
2) Advanced button
3) File Types tab
4) Add New Extension to List box, type in extension (without a period) such as "py"
5) Click OK and Close
6) Settings - Chose a default app for each type of file
7) Scroll down to file extesion
8) click Choose a Default
9) select a program
10) The first time you open a file with this new association, you will get a popup asking you which program to use to open this file type. Your default program will already be selected and a checkbox with Always use the program to open this type of file will already be selected as well, just click the program type. After this you are golden.

ok then I am stumped for a solution for I think is probably simple!

I have a broadband connection in my house, which provides Wifi for the home via a Netgear Wireless router and a wired connection to a couple of home laptops. All fine and dandy.

My new home studio is ready for occupation and in a separate building 75m away, so is well out of wifi range from the house.
The studio does however have a BT extension socket which is connected to the same home phone line via a cat 5 cable.
I realise that I can plug a single computer into this socket using a filter and that would provide broadband for 1 computer.

Thing is, I need to have decent broadband for 2-3 Macs in the studio (I am a video editor).

My question is:
What are my options for getting preferably Wifi in the new building, or at least 2-3 wired connections from this single BT socket?

I have a new spare DLink wireless router, is it possible to have 2 WiFi routers connected to the same Bt line? so the Netgear one serves the house and the Dlink one configured the same to serve the studio?

I purchased a Netgear Ethernet switch, after being told by PC world that this is what I need. Trouble is it doesn't to me look connectable to the BT socket /filter as it lacks an ADSL socket.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

PS. Update history shows that I was auto-updated to version 47.1 yesterday. I also have Windows 10 on a desktop and was updated to version 48 a few days ago. Was version 48 made mainly for the release of Windows 10's anniversary update?

A:.MOV file with .txt extension

Looks to me like whoever sent you them has done something wrong if they have a .txt filename extension. The .txt extension does not belong to multipart files. Most multipart files have the .rar or .zip extension for the first file, followed by alpha-numerical filename extensions for the part-files. They can be joined back together using WinRAR or WinZip respectively.

When I download programs, (we are not talking about P2P here) everything works fine and all, but if I want to change the name of the file I downloaded, it says that the file is a "file extension" and that it "may not be usable if I change the name." For example, I download a media file and it works fine. It is designated as being a media file and opens with media player. If I change the name, the message "this is a file extension...may not be usable if you change the name" comes up. If I hit "yes" to proceed and indeed change the name, then the file still works, but it is only called a "file" instead of a "media file" and therefore does not open with Media Player as a default. If I try to check the box that says "make this program the default player for this file," the box is "uncheckable." This started happening a few days ago and I am not quite sure what is going on. Any ideas? Thanks.

A friend of mine uses Win 98 and had it reinstalled by a technician. the technician said he saved my friends old emails and placed them in a folder named WIN_OLD.

The problem is that the file extentions are .dbx and we've never heard of this. Now he can't access his old email and is frantically searching for an answer to assist him in at least viewing the emails. Each file has the Microsoft Outlook Icon attached to it.

Trust me when I say his Outlook program does not function.

We thought that by right-clicking one of the files, and then choosing "Open With..." that we would be able at least use another program to view the emails. That just isn't going to happen because nothing seems to want to open a file with the extension ".dbx"....

Has anyone heard of this extension and if so then how can we view the file?

I am starting to get e-mail attachments from a correspondent in the U.K. that are MIM formatted. I have never run into these before in the nearly 7 years I've been "computing." My server (AOL) sends them through O.K., but my machine (Dell Dimension 8300 with Win XP Home and Word 2003) refuses to open them. The error notice directs me to some on-line sites that explain what MIM is, but offer no information on what to do to open them. Does anyone know where to get a download or a patch that will open these MIM attachments?

Thanks,

HLdeZ

There really doesn't seem like an apprporiate place to ask this so this seems the most feasible. I recieved a cd from a company containing old (1999) bank of america records (check images) that they couldnt open and need to. I am not convinced that the file format should be abc. I ran it through Trid and it came up with a Microsoft Security Catalog file. I am unsure what to do from here. I didnt know if it is possible to find what type of file it is supposed to be by reading it with notepad.

I've attached the file and any help would be appreciated!

A:ABC File Extension

If you ever need to know what program opens a file extension, just type it in Google. Do not install any Registry Cleaner programs they offer. But they will tell you what program opens that file extension.
The consensus is that the .abc file extension is a music writing software. There was also one hit about a financial graphic program that is very rare.
Since these are Bank records, why not contact the Bank and have them look through their micro film files for the account and reprint them for you for a small fee.

hey i have a file with extension .000
how could i open that file or which program will i need to read that type of file
plz help me
 

A:file extension .000

This is not a standard extension.

What do you think the file is?
Try opening it in Notepad and see if there are any clues?

Is the file called FOUND.000? If so, it's a file fragment found as a result of running a chkdsk and can generally be deleted.
