Adobe reader tries to open zip files in Vista

These are invoice files our trainers send to us for payment, but Adobe reader 9.1 defeats the automatic built-in zip file decoder that Vista uses.

For some reason or another your file associations got screwed up. To get it back to the default behavior, open Windows Explorer and right-click on any .zip file you have on your system. Select Open With -> Choose default program... from the context menu. This will bring up a dialog that will allow you to choose between a couple of programs. If Windows Explorer is not there, click on the Browse button, select C:\Windows\explorer.exe and click on Open. (This is generally faster than waiting for the Other Programs portion of the dialog box to populate.) Make sure the checkbox is selected next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' so it will permanently change the file association in the registry. Click on the OK button to complete the change.

I have an ECS k7VZA ver 3.0 Motherboard. I am trying to setup the front USB ports. Can you send me the pin diagram for the USB2 pin connection.


Download This(manual): http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfileecs/manual/mb/eng/k7/k7vta3_80.zip Download This(adobe reader): http://get.adobe.com/reader/download/
Download This(winrar): http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?id=predownload&dl=/rar/wrar401.exe
Install Winrar by double clicking "wrar401.exe" click "next" until it says "finish" then click that button. Install Adobe Reader by double clicking the file you downloaded click "next" until it says "finish" then click that button. Then right click the other file you downoaded "k7vta3_80.zip" then click "Extract Here". It should output a file right there called "K7VTA3 (8.0b).pdf" if it doesn't say .pdf thats fine too, double click this file. This should open in adobe Reader on the top it should say page 1/72 pages where it has the page "1" change it to 42 and hit enter.
Hope this helped please rate me and comment :)

What program should i use to open files they dont open with internet explorer


A file is usually open by the computer only when the associated program is installed in the system. The associated program recognize the file extension and open it.

For Example :A notepad file will be open by Notepad editor untill and unless you cange it to open with other program.

Microsoft Word can open a notepad file too.

Files usually you will find or will downloaded from internet are usually .exe, .rar, .zip, mp3, .avi, pdf etc.

I recommended, you installed these few softwares

1. Adobe Flash player.

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

2. Adobe Reader.

http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.2/enu/AdbeRdr920_en_US.exe

3.Jave runtime

http://fs4.filehippo.com/2222/75ce054974f24f4ca18bf8c0be7bc18f/jre-6u17-windows-i586-s.exe

4. Winrar

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe

Don't if you are not sure of the application to open a file.Download
"Irfanview".below is the link

http://fileforum.betanews.com/sendfile/1099412658/1/1262777908.514057fe0774684918afa85f23fdb31b3a1511ce/irfanview_plugins_425_setup.exe

It will open almost any files.

That's it.

Adobe reader could not open 'template.02{1}.zip' because it is either not a supported file or because the file has been damaged


that is zip file. You need to open it with winrar or winzip program. Zip is compresion format, after you open that file with winrar you will probably see your pdf file that you cann open with adoble reader.
