Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook

Open With Error

Hello, currently I am having issues opening up all of my programs in Vista. It seems that whenever I try to open a program (ex. word, internet explorer ect.) the ''Open with'' box comes up with defaults for what I should open it with. How do I go back to where I don't have to manually select a program to run in order to open these programs?

How to run digital fortran 6 on windows vista

Here is what I did. Open the DVD (right click and select Open), and then open the X86 folder. Run the Setup.exe file from there and it should install and work fine. I had an error during install near the end, but it seems to have done no harm. I compiled one of my old Fortran apps and it works fine.

Having trouble with Windows Explorer on a Vista 64 bit OS

Hello and thank you for using Fixya services.

From the sounds of your issue, it may be that you have malware or a Trojan. You can run a scan using this free
malware/antivirus protection. I am not sure which antivirus you are currently using but this one is free and has excellent reviews. You will need to uninstall your current antivirus protection first before installing this one.

Malware/Trojans can disable your antivirus programs and make it look like everything is running smoothly. By running a complete scan with another program, you can get the malware out. Even the best antivirus can be disabled.

Please let me know I can be of further assistance.

Why is this happening This issue can occur as a result of uninstalling the Google Desktop installed by Quickbooks on a computer running Microsoft Windows Vista. Launching QuickBooks after uninstalling Google will cause the error message.

Note: This issue is also known to occur with computers that have been upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista, where Google Desktop was uninstalled under Windows XP. Both cases would yield the same error message.
How to fix the problem This issue was resolved in the latest release for your version of QuickBooks.
Detailed Instructions Please update your program to the most current release.

Need to set an association to open a file

The first thing that you have to find out is what type of file is it. Normally if the file is not associated with any program on the computer then that means that the program is not installed. To find out the type of program that it is you can go to the link below then check the file extention. The file extention by the way is the letters after the period in the filename. EX. hello.DOC the capital letters is the file extention
