Preferred Solution: Unbale to open file with extension .MHT

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.)


when i open a powerpoint file saved on D drive, it shows tha message "powerpoint was unable to open or save this document. please ensure that you have access pvivilages to read or write the document and that it is not encrypted".
i am using lenovo 300n100 series laptop. windows xp(sp2) installed on C drive.
due to some viruses and software malfunctioning, i had to reinstall the operating system.after windows reinstallation, i couldnt open powerpoint files saved on D drive. as far as i remember, i think i did select the encrypt files under properties by right clicking on the folder containing powerpoint files.

so since i have lot of important powerpoint files in that folder which i cant open now, i will be extremely thankful to those who can help me open the files.
i look forward for asistance

i need to save a scanned document as a pdf ,well i couldn't find save as pdf option in scan wizard iam using hp scanjet4370 scanner

A:unbale to save a file as PDF

If you are sure you looked in the right place for that option, try re-installing the HP scanner driver and the HP Solution Centre software.

If that does not help, it may be the type of document you are scanning is not compatible with PDF, therefore the option to save as such is not available.

What utility can I use to open a file with a .qic file extension? It's an old backup file using Roxio but my current version of Roxio 9 no longer supports PC backup so I'd like to restore this file. Or at least open it with something that I can somehow interrogate what's in it and open some documents and pictures that are in it and save them in another format. I see .qic info on the web but I'm cautious about downloading something. Basically I just want to look in to the big file for pieces of it that I'd like to recover.

Yep DMG is an apple extension. You can use almost any Mac app to burn them to dvds. If you want to do it on win 7 you are going to have to gooogle an app that can read dmg in win 7 and write it.

I am wondering if anyone can give me some guidance on how to open .txn files. I know there was a topic regarding this posted some time ago, but it was 2 yrs ago, and I didn't think it was appropriate to rehash such an old thread

Some suggestions were to rename the file and change the extension to .html, but this doesn't work..not for me anyway. Is there a specific program that will allow me to open this type of file? Or a workaround of some sort?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Hi Friends,

If you get an error opening outlook stating:

"An extension failed to initialize. Can't open file: extend.dat. The file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, or it may be open in another program. Right-click the folder that contains the file, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. You don't have appropriate permissions to perform this operation." do this...

Allow Hidden Files: To view folders and files that are hidden, from my computer, click tools and then folder options. Click the view tab at the top of the window. Scroll down to the option Hidden files and folders. Click the option that says show hidden files and folders. Then click OK.

open explorer and navigate to folder:

The Fix: Make sure outlook is closed and not running. If you are viewing hidden files and folders, use windows explorer to go to documents and settings, then the folder of the user with the error. Next click Local Settings, then Application Data, then Microsoft, and finally click and go into the outlook folder. There is where you will find extend.dat. Now from here rename the file from extend.dat to extend.Old. Restart outlook and send someone an email.

*Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
*Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log *should open in notepad.

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
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)

A:IE will not open and Chrome has YTTNOaAds extension

 You could do a System Restore to a data prior to the start of the problem with IE.  IE is right buggy, and most folks I know avoid it for almost everything.  There's always Firefox too.  You can disable Chrome extensions by clicking the menu icon, then Settings, then Extensions.  There're you'll see check boxes for disabling them.
Good luck.

Hi...if I've put this topic in the wrong place, please tell me and I'll shut it down and open a new one in the appropriate place.

Anyway, I know this particular error was my own fault and not a virus or anything, but I could use a hand fixing it.

I downloaded a couple of new extensions for Apache Open Office I wanted (good part).

(bad part): Stupidly hit "install extension" directly to the .zip files, without unzipping them first. Naturally, Open Office now says I have two versions of the same extension...the properly working, unzipped one I want and the original goof-up of mine.

Except hitting "Remove" for the bad one does nothing. Neither does uninstalling the good one and reinstalling it. (On the other hand, the bad notice doesn't seem to effect the good extension actually working just as I wanted it to...)

So how do I remove the bad extensions that say, "directburn.zip" for example? Without uninstalling and reinstalling the entire Open Office, I suppose?

Internet Explorer Extension to Open Current Web Page Using a Different Browser

Recently the folks at Lifehacker wrote about the Open With Add-on for Mozilla Firefox, which adds additional menu options to open the current web page using another browser. This Add-on is comes handy if you need to test your web pages out in Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Opera or any other web browser.

Their post provided me the idea to create a similar extension for Internet Explorer.
"Open With" Extension (and Button) for Internet Explorer

Mozilla Firefox

1. Download firefox.zip, unzip and extract the files to a folder.
2. Move the files firefox.ico and firefox.htm to the C:\Windows\Web directory.
3. Double-click firefox.reg to merge the contents to the registry.
This adds the Open With Firefox button to the Internet Explorer Command Bar.

Google Chrome

To add the Google Chrome button, download chrome.zip and follow similar steps as above.
Close all Internet Explorer windows and then re-open. If the button isn?t visible by default, you need to customize the Command Bar. To do so, right-click on the empty toolbar area in Internet Explorer, click Customize, and click Add or Remove Commands?

Select Mozilla Firefox / Google Chrome entries from the list and click Add.
