My computer programs started to be taken over by windows media program,so I tried to stop this by putting my programs and files accidently into c folder ...8activator.exe.Thats when my problems began,


Wow, I hate to necro an old thread here, but seeing as how there is no answer I will chime in here.

You need to change your file associations. This process varies from one OS version to the next so follow the links below for your respective Windows version. I will include XP since I know plenty of people still cling to that to this day.

I use Windows 10 which does not have Media Center, so I know that walkthrough does not help you. However, it may help others with similar file association issues.

I open a file while downloadind den i cannot open my pile when iopen the file open in not pad


what file are you trying to download? It is opening in Note Pad because it doesn't know what else to open it in. You need to associate the file with the correct program. If it is a movie file then associate it with Media Player. If its a document then you need to associate it with Word etc.

This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer in Microsoft Outlook 2007. Links are disabled.


This issue arises when the HTM file association is corrupted. You can fix this issue in 2 ways:
1. You can change the default internet browser. for example: If the Internet explorer is the default browser on the computer, you can install Firefox and set it as the default browser.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/change-your-default-browser-HA001190694.aspx
2. Second way is to fix the HTM/HTML Associations (Restore the default associations for htm/html files).
-Take the registry back up first.
-Then, depending upon the operating system, you can download the registry fix from the following websites.
For Win xp: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm
For Win Vista: http://www.winhelponline.com/articles/105/1/File-association-fixes-for-Windows-Vista.html
For Win 7: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/file-asso-fixes-for-windows-7/
Download the HTM file and double click on it to run the fix.

ERROR MESSAGE


> this file does not have a program associated with it

Vista should say "choose a program from the following list". Correct?
Choose Internet Explorer, and check the "always use this program' box.

Need help with lyra slider mp3


There are a couple options:
Option 1: There should have been a file on the player that you can access through Windows Explorer (My Computer, click on the dirve that is your player) that should be named: RCAeasyRip_setup.exe

If you do not have this file, it can be downloaded from the RCA site here:
http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2253

Run this file to install the RCA easyRip software that allows you to manage your media (both on your PC and your device). Use the Player Library module in easyRip to view the contents of your device and you can select files for deletion.

Option 2: Go to My Computer, find the drive letter associated with your device (Lyra Slider) and simply find media on there that you want to remove, and delete it.

I am a rookie on the computer. I dont know how to put my music to my mp4 player. Please explain step by step. I don't see where to drag the music to. Also I don't know how to file them as mp3. I have...


Mp3 players are WAY too complicated to tell you in a few simple steps how to get them to work.

The SA178 is completely incompatible with Vista - Philips has issued a warning on their website. If you do indeed have an SA178, don't even try to use it with your Vista-enabled computer.

If, by some chance, you have a different model GoGear that is compatible with Vista - you may have to go to Philips website first to get a key firmware upgrade for it to work properly.

This is all before you even begin.

Once you have verified whether it is Vista-compatible or not, below are help files that will aid you in using Windows Media Player to transfer music files to your device. If your music files are not already in Mp3 format AND they are NOT copy-protected, then you can download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the music files to mp3 format.

Here are the Windows Media Player help files:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

How to download microsoft powerpoint on windows vista


sounds like soemthing has broken the file association with the files you are trying to open in explorer. 
First of all, make sure it IS a powerpoint file you are trying to open. 
second of all, there is a method in which you can try to recreate the file association: 
1.) right click on the file you are trying to open and choose Open With -> Choose program
2.) if PowerPoint Viewer is in the list, click on it, make sure "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is enabled, then press OK. the program will open and read the file. exit out of it and open the file again to test to see if this works. 
If it isn;t on the "programs" list of the Open With Menu, you will have to find it. Click on "Browse", search for the program, select "open", make sure "always use the seelcted program" is checked off, and press OK. close the application thats starts and run again to test. 
Hope this helps, alsthough this was posted a far ways back.
