Hi, hope this helps:
If all the text appears garbled or as question marks, then Microsoft Word may not have accurately detected the encoding standard of text in the file. As a result, Word may have used the wrong encoding standard.
To have Word use an encoding standard you select:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.
  2. Select the Confirm conversion at Open check box.
  3. Close and then reopen the encoded file.
  4. In the Convert File dialog box, select Encoded Text.
  5. In the File Conversion dialog box, select Other encoding, and then select the encoding standard you want from the list.You can preview the text in the Preview area to check whether it makes sense in the encoding standard you selected.
If almost all the text looks the same (for example, all boxes or all dots), the required font may not be installed. You can install additional fonts by running the Microsoft Office Setup program again. On the Advanced Customization screen in the Setup program, expand Office Shared Features, and then expand International Support. Select the font you need, click the arrow next to your selection, and then click Run from My Computer.

Cannot get back to English language


Turn on the cpt and when ready click on the start button to bring up the start menu. When the start menu screen is displayed type the word "language" using the regular keyboard. Look for the heading "Region and Language" or something similar and click on it. Then go to "English" and click again. Should then be ok.

Encoded email


Hi Charlie,

Yes, you cannot just open a .pdf file (Adobe format) by opening it as a text file. It will look like a bunch of strange characters if you try to open it on Notepad or Word.

Did you reboot your computer after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader? After installation any .pdf files will be opened automatically by Adobe Reader, but only after your computer is restarted.

Also, if you look in your email on the list of files attached, the file should have a name ending in .pdf. That's how the system recognizes it as an Adobe Acrobat file. If it doesn't have the correct extension, you'll need to save it and change the file type. The way you do that depends on which Windows you have an if you're hiding the extension type (which is the default setting).

Worstcase, you can just have your friend open it and print it for you.

By the way, I wish you hadn't rated my answer as "Inappropriate". I got a score of 40/100 instead of 70/100 for a "Thanks for Trying"... :-( Anyway, hope that helps you out.

How can I view an encoded text sent to me


You mean it was password protected when it was created, right? You have to enter the correct password to be able to view it.

Make sure the upper case/lower case is correct. For example, Apple is different from apple. Also, make for the password you are not mixing up a letter "l" and a number "1" or a letter "O" from a number "0".

Hope that helps,

-Vince

I use Windows Vista with Windows Mail. I have an email in the inbox which I cannot open, or delete and cannot drag into any other box i.e., into the Spam, Junk or Deleted box. I would add, I was much...


1. Make sure your antivirus or any other security programs have all of their email scanning options turned off. The emailscaning option is a redundant feature.
NOTE: These scanning options can corrupt Windows Mail entire message folder, or the entire message store, when it attempts to remove a message it thinks contains a potential virus. You will still be protected against infection with the antivirus program's system protection. These email scans can also cause problems with opening attachments in Windows Mail to.

2. Download Windows Vista upate from location below,
