How to change an adobe reader program to microsoft word?


I am assuming you want the .pdf extension to automatically open with word instead.

To change which program starts when you double-click a file, follow these steps:
  1. Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click Explore.
  2. Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to open in a program that you select.
  3. Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your computer, complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
    • Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that you want.
  4. The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to select the program that you want to use for this file type:
    • In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
    • Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and then click Open.
    • Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for the program that you want to use.
  5. Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box if it is not selected.
  6. Click OK.

    Note From now on, Windows XP will open all files that have this file name extension in the program that you selected. To change this, you must follow these steps again and associate a different program with this file name extension.

Windows defender not working


The Windows Defender software constantly scans your computer for threats such as spyware that may slow down your computer or try to steal personal information.


If the software wasn't installed properly or is conflicting with other programs running on your machine, Windows Defender may not work correctly.


To repair the software you either need to download the latest update available for the program, or you need to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender.


Restart your computer's operating system.

Double-click the "Windows Defender" icon in the system tray at the lower-right end of the screen.


Click the question mark icon at the top of the Windows Defender screen and choose "Check for Updates."


Select "Continue" if you are running Windows Vista.


Wait for the updates to finish installing and click "Scan."

Click "Stop Scan" if the problem persists.


Click the question mark icon again and select "Exit Windows Defender."

Click "Yes" to confirm you want to close the software.


Open the "Start" menu screen and select "Control Panel." Select "Uninstall a Program" in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or instead choose "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows XP.


Click the "Windows Defender" entry and select "Uninstall."

Choose "Yes" and restart the computer after the program is removed.


Navigate to the Windows Defender installation webpage (see Below).

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en&mg_id=10134


Click "Download" and double-click the Windows Defender installation file when it downloads to your hard drive.


Go through the onscreen installation instructions.

Open the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."


Select "Windows Defender."

Click "Scan" to start a new scan for malicious software.

Drive not opening


To solve this error, follow this steps:

1>> Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2.>> Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3.>> Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. >>In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5.>> Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6>>. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”(correct this)

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.

Opening of drives


I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
smss.exe
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.

Cannot open my D drive by double clicking but it shows the option open with note pad help


You drive has been infected by a virus. but I think you can still open it by not double click rather to right click on the D drive and choose explore from the menu.
But this not the solution save the files somewhere and work out on removing the virus.

RUNTIME ERROR


you will need to repair windows as there is a system error. Change the first boot device in the bios F2 or Del on boot up to your cdrom save and exit and then insert the cd before you re boot. Allow the cd to install the installation files, but when prompted instead of pressing enter to install windows, press 'R' to repair instead, at which point your C: drive will be shown, press 'Y' to answer yes to the c drive that needs to be repaired and press enter and allow a system repair, no docs or files will be lost as you are only repairing not formatting and installing.
