Preferred Solution: .chm files will NOT open, they ask me to save or open again when i open them.

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.)

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!

A:After virus removal IE not able to open save or open files from the web.

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 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

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?

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?

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.

Hi everybody

I picked up some nasty malware. AVG was updating and suddenly everything just fell apart.

I can't run any installation programs regardless of the extension or name. I've tried to install Rkill and MalwareBytes with absolutely no luck. It defaults to needing to be unblocked in the properties and no matter what compatibility mode I use it will not run. I get a 1084 error when I try to open the security center. In the taskbar I have an Action Center alert that says 1 Important Message and 3 Total Messages. The Action Center will not open at all. I do not have access to a USB key as I am not home, but I will be Tuesday evening. Any help would be infinitely appreciated.

Other notes I forgot: I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and I am constantly getting errors that Windows can't load and needs to be repaired. It runs and restarts, sometimes being repaired and other times not.

Thanks a lot
Jared

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

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?

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?

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.

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

It goes to the little hourglass thingy like its thinking for a split second and then nothing happens. The file won't open.

So this was pissing me off. I have no idea why I can't open my music files in a simple manner any longer.

I'm running Windows 10, and Excel 2013. I just upgraded to Win 10. Before I did so, I had no problems at all with Excel. Now that I've upgraded to Win 10, Excel no longer remembers my "recently opened workbooks".

I have gone to file/options/advanced numerous times, and, under "display", clicked on "show this number of recent workbooks" and also clicked the check box next to "quickly display this number of recent workbooks".

Each time I do that, while I am still using Excel, the display of recent workbooks is what I want. But invariably, after closing Excel, after I log off, then restart Windows, the next time I start Excel the check box is blank and there are no recently opened workbooks at all on the Excel start page!

Anyone have any clues what's wrong or how to make Excel do what I want?

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

If you fx have received an open pgp encrypted file, encrypted using your own public key, you

Same way, you should be able to open pgp encrypt a file on your computer, using an imported public

PPS attachments in email will not open but will open from desktop. Get the message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program , or if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs in control panel." Control panel default program shows Power Point Viewer 2007 is the default program associated with it. Why will it open from desktop but not from an email?

Hi people!

My problem is that when i have selected, lets say 3 .txt or .xls files and right-click on them and choose open nothing happens? I can right-click one file and choose open and it will open. It is just when i have selected multiple files to open that nothings happens.

The thing is that i have some collegues that have the same installation as i have and they can do it, any ideas what could be causing this problem for me?

Thx in advance

Nevyn
 

A:Cannot open multiple selected files with right-click - open

I have this problem too. Previously I could highlight (example) six text files, right click, choose open and voila! they all opened. Now I'm forced to open them one by one. Hope you can help.

last week my computer would boot all the way up to the desktop but when i tried to open up my files they wouldn't open and the content in my start menu wouldn't load up, so i forced shut down the comp went into safe mode and did a system restore from July 22nd (since that was the only restore point available) and that seemed to fix everything. everything worked fine after that. i've done this process twice since last week w/ restore points from July 22nd and Aug. 13, since every time i shut down my comp files won't open and the start menu content won't load compelling me to do a system restore to fix everything, which it did.

so, now, to today. got home, i turned on my comp and encountered the same "files won't open, start menu content won't load" problem but when i went to do a system restore using 3 of the 4 restore points from aug. 14, since all the others were gone and those were the only ones left, the problem still existed.

w/ 3 of the 4 not working i was losing hope that the last one would work, so after the third attempt, while in safe mode, i decided to just google the problem but when i went to open firefox i got a xull.dll error message. so i tried out google chrome to see if i could get on the net that way. that worked.

before googling why my files won't open i googled the xull.dll problem first, since that was the freshest frustration in my mind. i googled it and read it was part of some registry issue and that xull.dl... Read more

Most Registry Repair programs sometimes do more damage then they fix. Go to Start/Run and type SFC /scannow and hit enter. The Windows Protection window will open. It may ask for your Windows XP CD. It will now replace any corrupted files that it needs

I recently installed Windows Vista Home Premium software on my laptop. It was working fine until recently. The problem is that whenever I try to save or save as in Firefox, Word, and other programs the window pops up but never loads and when I click on it it says (Not Responding). The only program in which I can save something is Internet Explorer 7 which I rarely use. It also does this same thing when I try to browse and open a file. PLEASE help!

Hello
I work as part of a IT team within a organization that has 200+ Windows 8.1 devices, recently we have been experiencing a problem when downloading files using Internet Explorer 11.
You click the file to download (word document,PDF etc) and you get the yellow bar at the bottom asking you to open save etc but when you select any of the options nothing happens and this is becoming increasingly more common.
I cant believe we are the only people to have this issue but i have searched and cant find any answers.
I hope somebody can help us.
Thanks,

Hi Bristow2013,

The download option works at my side(Checked with downloading applications),  please take a look at the
View Downloads under Tools at the right-up corner of Internet Explorer, or tap
Ctrl + J, check and see if the downloads is available there.
Further, also check the add-ons in Internet Explorer, more information, please see:

After virus removal IE not able to open save or open files from the web.
 
- I have ran malwarebytes, awdcleaner, comboxfix, and tdsskiller.
- I have check settings in IE to make sure downloading was enabled
- all other browser work fine ... chrome, firefox
- I have taken IE off the machine by turning off IE in windows services via uninstall programs, rebooted and ran ccleaner, then re-enabled IE...still cannot download and save files
- I have rest IE...still same issue.
 
The only thing other thing I have found online regarding this is that IE may have lost it admin rights or something like that. have any of you ran across this issue before?

Hi,
 
I have a problem with the "Always ask before opening this type of file" function in Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 8.1.
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,


When I click in a link for download any file, the system asks "Do you want to open or save this
file".  How do I disable this prompt.

OK, Starter for ten,
We have published some Infopath forms on a Sharepoint portal, the intranet address is registered as a 'trusted site' and the forms themselves were published from within the local net, everytime a user opens a saved form, the usual 'do you want to open save or cancel' dialogue box appears (with the 'always ask' tickbox greyed out).
How do I either disable this dialogue box or re-enable the tickbox so that users can select to aways open?
When a new form is opened (XSN File), the dialogue does not appear.
I seem to remember there being a registry hack for file types, although I can't find it in any of the usual sources...
