    thank you very much Wormy 22

    clarifying, i'm using the pocket pc file explorer, i haven't tried to explore with any other explorer program. The problem is also present when I try to open any file from the explorer of a specific program, for example pocket word or pocket adobe. Excuse my ignorance but I don't know what means "satarting fresh". If I conect with activ sync, it is possible to explore the files ffrom my pc, but i cant open any file in the PDA. Now i'm trying to update the BIOS.

    I have the same problem: when I touch a file name, the file name is highlighted instead of opening the file, when I touch another file name, the file name is also highlighted (while the first file name is still highlighted)...I can't open any files. I'm still able to browse the file using my PC. It seems the file explorer of the PDA is not working properly. I tried soft re-set and hard re-set wtih no success.

Let's clarify a few things, when you try to access files on your PDA in file explorer or within a program it will not let you open it. I would try updating your bios and see what happens.  Here's a link to where you can get it.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=306679&prodTypeId=215348&prodSeriesId=322898&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1087

Also try browsing the files from your computer.  Also try starting fresh.  This is a really odd problem.  What programs do you use to try and open files?  Good luck with your issue.

    Sorry, I meant starting fresh but I think that's what you meant by your hard reset.  If you hold down on a file to open the menu will it open the menu?  Can you browse through the folders in the PDA's file explorer?  Try putting a picture on the PDA through your PC and see if you can open it either through file explorer or the Ipaq's image viewer.  I hope updating the bios does the trick though.  I'm going to take a look at my Ipaq and see if I can't come up with any more ideas.

If you have already downloaded these programs or data ?

Losing a file or program that you have just downloaded can be a frustrating experience.

The key is to be patient and to accurately note the name of the file or program.


With some effort, the process of finding a downloaded item can be quickly accomplished.


Note the name of the file or program that you have downloaded.

It is easier to find if you have the entire name, including the file extension.


Go to your desktop.


Right click on the "Start" button on the bottom left.

Scroll to and select "Find" or "Search," depending on your version of Windows.


Use the "Name" function in the dialog box that appears.

yoe in the entire name of the file that you downloaded, and click "Find Now" or "Search."


You can also search by date with the "Date" tab or button.

Enter the date you downloaded the file, and hit "Find Now" or "Search."


Double-click on the file or program in the resulting list and it will open.


Mac-based computer


Note the name of the file or program that you have downloaded.

It is easier to find if you have the entire name, including the file extension.


Go to your desktop.


Click on the "Spotlight" button in the top right corner of your Mac.


Type in the name of the file and hit the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

This will result in a list of instances of files on your Mac that match the file name.

Once you find the file or program in that list, click on it and it will open.


Browser-based solution


Open the browser that you used to download the content or program.

Some browsers, including Firefox, have functionality that lets you track where your downloads reside.


Click "Tools" in the browser menu and scroll down to "Downloads" if it is available.

Click on "Downloads." In Safari, go to "Window" and scroll down to downloads.


Scroll through the list of downloads from the browser in the list that appears.

Double-click the download.

Hyplinks do not work in Outlook 2007. they used to work, not sure what made them stop


Fix 1: Start by Resetting Your Default Browser Most times, I can fix my Outlook hyperlink problem by resetting my default browser to Internet Explorer. I start with this step even if I plan to use Firefox as my browser. The reason I choose this path is I’ve had better success and it takes me closer to my end goal.
To make IE your default browser,
1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Click Tools from the menu
3. Select Internet Options.
4. Click the Programs tab
5. Click the button labeled Make Default.
6. Click OK.
7. Test a hyperlink in Outlook to see if the web page opens in Internet Explorer.
Fix 2: Reregister Windows DLL Files Even after resetting your default browser you still can’t open hyperlink in Outlook, it could be one or more registry keys is damaged. The solution is to reregister some of your DLL files. The process may sound intimidating, but it’s easy. There are 6 files to register based on your system. Some configurations use shdocvw.dll and others use shdoc401.dll.
To reregister the DLL files,
1. Close all open programs.
2. Click the Start button.
3. Select the Run… command. Vista users can type “run” in the Start Search textbox.
4. In the Open: textbox, type regsvr32 followed by a space and the file name.
In the screen snap below, I’ve used the first file Shdocvw.dll.
reregister-dll_300x154_23fc582bab296271059a0d070fdd0fcf.jpg
5. Click the OK button. You should see a message showing the process succeeded.
6. Click OK to dismiss the message.
7. Repeat the procedure for the other DLL files.
  • regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll (Some system use Shdoc401.dll instead)
  • regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
  • regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
  • regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
  • regsvr32 Urlmon.dll
  • regsvr32 Shell32.dll
8. As before, test to see if your Outlook hyperlink problem has been resolved.
Fix 3: Reset the (NONE) URL File Types If you’ve gotten to this part, I have to figure your Outlook hyperlinks are still broken. Don’t fret as I have another fix to try. My guess is someplace along the line your file associations broke. This is the mapping Windows uses to a file type to program. A common mapping might be .XLS files with Microsoft Excel. In this case, we need to check URL mappings.
To set URL file associations,
1. Open My Computer.
2. From the Tools menu, select Folder Options…
3. Click the File Types tab. A long list of Extensions and File Types appears.
4. Scroll down till you get to (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
dll-success.png
5. Click the Advanced button.
folder-options-dialog_300x365_dde956851a1c2536602f215467e0788c.jpg
6. Select the bold open item. *
7. Click Edit…
8. Click the Browse… button
9. Navigate to where Internet Explorer is located. (For most PC, it’s at C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe)
10. Add a space and %1 to the end of the file name. (e.g. "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %1)
11. Click OK.
12. Click Close.
13. Repeat the process for (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy.
* If open doesn’t show, click New and type open in the action box.
Back to Firefox (Optional) Once you get the Outlook links to open in Internet Explorer, you can change your default browser to Firefox. This should roll down to Outlook so any embedded hyperlinks will open in the correct browser.
To set Firefox 3 as your default browser,
1. Open Firefox
2. Select Tools from the menu
3. Select Options…
4. Click Advanced
5. Click the Check Now button
6. Click Yes if the default browser is not set.
7. Click OK.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.

Can't remove programs


When you try to remove certain programs on the PDA the following message may appear and in some cases the program will remain no matter how many times you try to remove it: Due to the nature of the PDA and the fact that the operating system is resident in memory at all times, some .DLL files cannot be stopped and removed. For example, the program below uses a .DLL file to run a program on the Start screen and is therefore always running. The only way around this is to rename the file via Active Sync. In Active Sync on the computer, click on Explore. You may have to wait a short while until Mobile Device is displayed, then follow the program file to where the uninstall file is located, i.e. \Program Files\OmegaOne\BattPack\BatBar.dll. If you try and delete the .DLL file the following message will appear because the file is in use at the time: Select BattBar.dll file and rename this, making sure the file format has the .*** suffix and is different from any other valid format, for example, do not choose .jpeg / .mpeg. In this case we have renamed the file Aaa.aaa. Once the file is renamed and saved, remove the PDA and soft reset. The program linked to the .DLL will no longer be present on the PDA. You can now re-dock the PDA, synchronise and go back to Remove Programs and successfully delete the file.
