I can't open an excel file with my laptop

Hi simple,
I see that you are having issue opening an excel file with your Laptop what error do you get and what version of Office are you using?
If the Excel file that you are trying to open was save using a 2007 version or 2010 version and was not save as 2003 readable file then that will really be a problem, it is either you get the latest version of Office or you can go back from where you got the file and save it in a format that will be compatible to a lower version of Office.
When saving you just click on File then click Save as it will give you the options on how you want the file to be saved as, you just selct the format Excel 97-2003 Workbook, this should make it work with the latest version of excel and as well as the oldest versions of excel.

I hope that this help.
Have a nice day,

I have problem opening adobe pdf files. I have adobe 9 and 9.3 but does not open adobe files. It asks for adobe 4 and 7 or 8. I tried to download adobe 4,7 or 8. It says I have that version on my computer....

try the steps below:
1. Right-Click on the PDF file.
2. Select Properties
3. On the General tab,
3.1. Check the Opens with: if its set to Adobe Reader
If not, click the Change button and select Adobe Reader

If the same thing happens, Uninstall all Adobe Reader installed on your computer. It is an indication that the installation is corrupted that's why it is not being detected.

I suggest that you can try to use Foxit PDF Reader instead which for me I find very convenient in opening PDF files.

Please let me know if the following has been helpful.

Excel versus professional edition 2003

Hi Richard,

take a step back, and notice that they are talking about Microsoft Office Professional 2003, and not Windows XP Professional.

If you try to open an office document, in your case a .XLS file, and it says You need to insert the setup disk, then the install of Office is corrupt, and/or there are missing files that Office cannot locate.

you could cross your fingers and see if you perform a repair on Office.
you do this from Control Panel > Add Remove Programs, Click on MS Office 2003 Professional, and click Change/Remove . when the wizard starts, click Next and choose Repair .
it may still ask for the setup disks, or to browse to the folder where the setup cache files are located.
if this is the case, and you don't have the disk, your only option is to track down someone else who has the disk, or the folder on their c:\ where office offers to save its install files for the future when it might be needed.

I suspect that you did a File Cleanup on your c:\ and either you accidentally deleted the c:\MSOCache folder (which is hidden), or the Clean Up Wizard deleted it for you.

if you know someone with a PC with office 2003, you can copy this hidden file to your flash drive, and then dump the files back onto your computer.

i hope this helps.
Alternatively, you can use Open Office, a free download , fully fledged office suite of applications. not made by microsoft, but similar enough to perform the same tasks without much hassle or relearning.

Logged on and my email icon was missing as well as other icons. tried to start outlook and the message is simply cannot start outlook. cannot make google my home page as dell4me contiues to override any...

This issue may occur if you deploy Outlook 2003 with the Microsoft Office 2003 Custom Installation Wizard and specify a personal folder (.pst) file in the Windows Installer transform (MST file) by using the Default location for PST files path option. The problem occurs because you specify a file name instead of a folder path.

To resolve this issue for future installations of Office, use the Custom Installation Wizard to edit the MST file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Change Office User Settings page (page 10 of 24), expand Microsoft Outlook 2003, expand Miscellaneous, and then click PST Settings.
  2. In the right pane, double-click Default location for PST files, and then type the path that you want in the Default location for PST files box. For example, type %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\.
  3. Click OK, and then follow the steps to complete the wizard. When you have corrected the MST file, deploy Office by using the correct MST file.
To resolve this issue for an existing installation of Outlook that is experiencing this problem, specify the .pst file by using the Mail icon in Control Panel.

Or If you are receiving and Err like
Error message when you start Outlook: "Unable to open the Outlook window," "No profile has been created," or "The list of Profiles cannot be loaded"Follow the step's below:This issue may occur on a computer that is running Windows XP if the Outlook.exe file was configured to open with the Windows program compatibility mode setting. When you set compatibility for Outlook to Windows 95 or to Windows 98/Windows Millennium Edition, Outlook displays this error message. This is because the location of the Outlook Profile information in the registry differs on a Windows XP-based computer.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Locate Outlook.exe.

    Outlook.exe is typically located in one of the following folders, depending on the version of Outlook that you are running:
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11
    • Microsoft Outlook 2002 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10
    • Microsoft Outlook 2000 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 9
  2. Right-click Outlook.exe, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Compatibility tab, click to clear the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Try to start Outlook. If you receive error message again, use Method 2.

All words file are automatically open in powerpoint or unable to read

You need to make sure that the file type is set to open as a *.doc (Office 97 - 2003) or *.docx (Office 2007) Open up your 'My Documents' folder and then go to 'Tools' then 'Folder Options', then click on the 'File Type' tab. Scroll down until you see the file extentions for Word ( DOC or DOCX). When you click on them, you will be able to change what they open with.

How to recover the windows server2003 (missing file c:\ windows\system32\config\system

Two options:

Either reinstall Windows


Follow the procedure below

It will be better if you print these instructions since you will need to type many commands later. I'm typing a detailed procedure to recover your windows.

It's possible that somehow your Windows registry is corrupted. But there is a backup. Only thing is you need to manually restore it.

Boot using your Windows XP cd in the drive and press enter when it asks to boot from CD (if it does not ask, then you will need to go to the CMOS setup by pressing DEL or F2 key and change the boot sequence)

Now, when booting from 2003 CD, it asks if you want to do a recovery, press R and you will get this screen:

Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console 

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality. 
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer. 


Which Windows Installation would you like to log onto 
(To cancel, press ENTER)? 

Type 1 and press enter.

Now type the commands I am putting below, one by one per line and press enter after every line.

md c:\tmp

cd system32\config

copy system c:\tmp\system.bak 

copy software c:\tmp\software.bak

copy sam c:\tmp\sam.bak

copy security c:\tmp\security.bak

copy default c:\tmp\default.bak

del system software sam security default

Now, type these commands: (Take care to type the dot as it is)

copy c:\windows\repair\system .

copy c:\windows\repair\software .

copy c:\windows\repair\sam .

copy c:\windows\repair\security .

copy c:\windows\repair\default .

Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows .

If the PC boots in to windows, then do the following:

Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box. 

Click Yes when the dialog box is displayed that confirms that you want to display these files. 

Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to get a list of the folders. It's important to click the correct drive. 

Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder. 

This folder contains one or more _restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".

Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RP x under this folder. These are restore points. 

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: 

C:System Volume Information_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1Snapshot 

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 

Now, once again put your Windows 2003 CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 

Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

If in case, Windows doesn't boot even following this procedure, then you need to reinstall windows. BUT you can still try a repair install instead of a normal install since that will let your programs and settings remain as they are, intact.

Post back and I will reply with that procedure.

How to open my limewire after dowbnloading?


It's not clear in your post exactly what file you are referring to.

Have you just downloaded the Limewire program, and are trying to install it? If so, it sounds as if the download is corrupted. Try downloading it again. You can get it here from the official website.

If on the other hand you already have Limewire installed and the file that will not open is something you have downloaded with the program, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY.

Viruses and other nasties can be hidden with innocent looking files. The fact that it is warning you about operating system files and potential damage should set alarm bells ringing!

Try getting the file again from a different source.

Good luck.
