Like problems I usually solve with the help of a tool, which I had found out many time ago. But recent issue I could determine only with the aid of a tool from Inet. It would relieve in this trouble too - fix rar.

Dektop icons doesnt show up! cant open control panel!


Sounds like something viral to me. If you are able to connect to the Internet I would suggest downloading and running a tool called combofix. Information on how to use it and links to download are here. I've used this on several XP systems to get rid of some nasty stuff, but never had to try it on Vista yet. If the trouble is not from a virus but just because something else has thoroughly screwed up the registry, you might have to restore your system.

Home vista to open corel files


If you try to open the file with Microsoft Word, it should automatically convert it. To open it with Microsoft Word, hit "File" > "Open". Change the "Files of Type:" drop down box to "All (*.*)". Navigate to the folder in which the file is located, and it should appear in the dialog box. Double click the file, and Microsoft Word should convert the file for you. You can then save the file in a different format if you prefer.
