    If that is the case. Save the document to your computer, Right click on the attachment, select "open with", then select "choose program " on the bottom of the menu. a box will open up and you can select Word. Then before you close the box, check mark the box that is titled " Always use this program to open this kind of file". click OK and that sholud fix your problem.

    Please re-rate this if it does fix your issue.

Problem installing Vista SP1 on Asus G2s


If you tried to install Vista on the Primary drive and formatted the primary HDD your Factory Recovery Partition , most likely has been written over, it's gone. Choose one or the other , Vista or Win 7, start from the beginning, install a clean Vista load, formatting in the installation procedure, form a Vista Installation DVD, follow instructions, boot up, do ALL the Vista Updates, it will take hours of updates, rebooting, updates, rebooting. You will get to the Service Pack's 1 and 2, in 24 hours or so. Put on a pot of coffee and be patience. If you prefer Windows 7 use the same procedure.

Did you do ALL your windows update before the Service Pack? That SP has been out for years? Doesn't your laptop have Windows Updates set to Auto? Choose one or the other, Vista or Win 7 and do a Full Install.

I cannot open dbx files


Hi,
If you cannot open the .dbx file, you need to have Outlook Express installed on your computer. Usually outlook Express is the default email client for Windows XP. http://www.dbxconverter.com/ you can try to use this link to get teh converter of .dbx files to .pst files that you can use and read using Microsoft Outlook (Third Party) or Windows Mail (default for Vista) Windows Live Mail(Windows 7).
Cheers!!

Hello can I use AIM share desktop during system recovery at my sister's notebook hp pavilion dv 6700 ? vista home premium sp1


It would not be possible since AIM share desktop only runs in windows environment. if you would be doing a system recovery, the contents of the HDD will be refreshed meaning it would run starting outside of windows.

To type in Microsoft word, you need to have Microsoft office installed in your computer to find out that go to all programs and locate Microsoft word their click on that and you will be ready to go.

  • If you vista or windows 7 Click on start type wordpad in the search box you will get that in the results click on that and start using it.

System freezes if I dont use the laptop for some time


There are many possibilities which may affect your laptop issue.

Like addins installed on your laptop. Poor network connections etc. Rather than spending time troubleshooting each addins and network, it would be more time effective to do a reinstall.

The best solution I would recommend is to get it re-imaged by your company tech support. This would reset all software installation on the laptop.

If you are really keen on changing the OS to XP, you should contact HP Support. Their XP drivers are not listed on their support webpages but they do have it on their FTP servers. You just need to get them to send you the links to those XP drivers for your laptop.

Please rate if it fixes you issue.

After installing vista service pack 1 my dvd rom is gone.


I would try stopping the device and restarting it first.

If that doesn't work, find the latest drivers for it, and have them in a folder you can find easily. In device manager, you can right click, go into properties for the DVD-ROM. Click the update drivers button, and point it to that directory.

If neither of those work ,try completely uninstalling it from device manager, then going through the add new hardware option in control panel.

Vista Business and XP


Have you installed SP1 for Vista? This was supposed to help with some of the speed issues. However, I am on XP, having experienced both, and not yet willing to deal with the issues surrounding Vista, as there are just too many. On another note, MS is offering free support for issues following installation of SP1 (see https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?prid=11274&gprid=500921), so it could be that, assuming that you can make them understand this is related to SP1, and that they could zero in on the reason for your speed issue, you might decide you want to stay with Vista. At any rate...

As for the mail, it sounds as though you have been using the Windows Mail included with Vista exclusively. There is not a "Windows Mail" program for Windows XP. The exact solution to the question of how to bring your mail back over depends on what you used previously, and what type(s) e-mail accounts you have/had. You could take a look at Windows Live Mail (it's free, at least for now) at http://get.live.com/wlmail/features#ID0E2BAC and see if this would do it for you.

However, aside from the Vista/Mail/Live Mail combination, the solution for mail in going back to an XP OS depends on what you use and did use for mail previously. If you have an account with an ISP from which you are downloading your mail, you should be able to put copies of those messages back on the server by, in effect, e-mailing them to yourself if no other choices are available. (The individual choices / features depend heavily on the ISP and e-mail provider you are using.) I would say to just make sure you have things set in Windows Mail NOT to download the messages from the ISP before you start sending them to yourself.

Then, once you have reconverted back to XP and installed whatever program you will use to handle your mail (Outlook Express?), download them back in. You can export from Windows Mail or Outlook Express into Outlook - reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196347/en-us - so this may represent another choice. The downside with this is that the date/time exported will end up being the date/time on the message in Outlook.

To summarize, no there is no Windows Mail - in XP, the only equivalent is Outlook Express. You will have to go to some effort regardless of the choice, but there are several ways to get your e-mail back down to the new choice. Best of luck, and if you need more info, please post back. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

Outlook express problems


Check your recycle bin. There may be in your files. They will have the extension .bak In that case, you have a file size is exceeded, or an error occurred. Then you will need to resort to specialized software. Many recommend this program: http://www.outlookexpress.recoverytoolbox.com/
I myself have not tried Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Express, but people say it always helps.
But I would advise you to read here about the problem: http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/outlook-express/395-something-wrong-with-outlook-express-how-to-fix-it

I hope my answer will help you. Good luck!

Unable to open e-mail attachment


Open Files with .MSG File Extension Do you want to open a message with the Outlook .MSG file extension? The Encryptomatic MSG File Viewer makes it easy access Outlook MAPI message files (.msg files) created in Outlook 2000/XP/2003.
MSG Viewer reads .msg files encoded in western characters. It will display the text contents of the .msg file on your monitor. You can also print the message, save it to a text file, and extract file attachments.

Easy to Use Encryptomatic's Outlook .MSG Viewer is simple to use. It may be optionally installed as the default .msg file handler. This enables you to display a .msg file by simply double clicking it.
Extracts File Attachments from Outlook .MSG Message Files
Users can extract and save to disk any file attachments that were included in the Outlook .msg file, a useful feature not found in other viewers of this price class. To extract email attachments, just double click on the file attachment and save it to a directory.


viewer-screen.jpg What it Doesn't Do
The MSG Viewer is designed to give you quick access to an .msg file's text contents, file attachments and header information. It does not render colors, formatting or graphics, and it is not a full featured substitute for Outlook. With an RTF message with colored text and font formatting, the text will appear in black and white and the paragraph formatting will be lost (as in the message above). MSG Viewer displays only Western characters.
