If you try to open the file with Microsoft Word, it should automatically convert it. To open it with Microsoft Word, hit "File" > "Open". Change the "Files of Type:" drop down box to "All (*.*)". Navigate to the folder in which the file is located, and it should appear in the dialog box. Double click the file, and Microsoft Word should convert the file for you. You can then save the file in a different format if you prefer.

BEST BUY GEEK SQUAD ROUND-UP


I can confirm that this level of incompetence is quite common. It is Best Buy's standpoint that Geek Squad is an extension of their sales strategies, thus their hiring practices reflect that standpoint. Many Geek Squad "Agents" are hired or transfered to Geek Squad based upon their merits as sales people, NOT technicians. This strategy, combined with the pathetically low pay level (which any certified or experienced technician would laugh at) results in untrained staff programmed to follow certain sales strategies. In my experience, many of my fellow employees were on the same technical level as the customers across the counter seeking support.

Best Buy did settle with Winternals / Sisinternals and integrated many of their tools into Geeks Squad's authorized repair disk (Much of which is purely automated). At some level, Best Buy has internally recognized that their Geek Squad staff is mostly unqualified and have catered their corporate licensed / developed software to reflect the situation. This not only showed Geek Squad's incompetency (again) but also shows how news media is more interested in scaring you than actually helping you. It's good that the big chains got this bit of negative press on a local station but you should also applaud the store that did it for free - at least post their name and address and show an interview with the owner or clerk.

Mom and pop shops are usually run by people that are hobbyists first and business-folk second. Whenever someone at my company asks for personal computer help that I don't care to deal with I send them to a small shop in our town - one with Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Netscape Navigator and Word Perfect stickers are mostly-faded on the window. I know they'll be treated honestly and fairly. No charge just to examine a computer to add onto the actual repair.

It's sad how many people/companies are more interested in making the most money from a problem instead of trying to solve it fairly.
and LASTLY "1st thing that video is at least 8 years old I remember seeing it when I was young in highschool."
Perhaps you are thinking of the PC World investigation of major retail computer service departments? I remember reading it long ago:
http://www.pcworld.com/article/3764-6/pc_repair_ripoff.html
The article is from Mid 1998. A damaged IDE cable was part of the problems on their test PCs.

From the article:
"Of 55 problems tested across 20 stores, a total of 30 were misdiagnosed, ignored, or went otherwise unfixed. Best Buy and Computer City each missed on 9 of 15 tries."

THE REAPIR WE WERE TALKING ABOUT WAS A 10 TO 20 DOLLAR FIX :()

AND


A confidential settlement has ended litigation initiated by Winternals over copyright infringement regarding Geek Squad's use of its ERD Commander software.

The lawsuit should end following a July 7th motion from Winternals lawyer David Weaver, who cited a settlement agreement reached between the company and Best Buy, which owns Geek Squad.

Instead of a lengthy lawsuit, Winternals now has a three-year agreement in place with Best Buy. This will permit its Geek Squad of tech assistance personnel to lawfully use licensed programs from Winternals and Sysinternals. This includes the ERD Commander system recovery tool.

The problems for Best Buy and Geek Squad started in February 2006. Winternals had conducted training sessions for Geek Squad employees, as part of its negotiations with Best Buy to license software for its 12,000 Geek Squad workers.

Then the negotiations ended abruptly. Coupled with the admission from employees of Geek Squad and Best Buy that they had been using unlicensed copies of ERD Commander, Winternals began to investigate.

They set up systems needing repair in multiple locations, and put calls in to Geek Squad for assistance. Geek Squad staffers either used unlicensed copies of ERD Commander, or had them in their possession.

In April 2006, Winternals sued in US District Court in western Texas for copyright infringement, circumvention of copyright protections systems, and misappropriation of trade secrets.

Error Code 1606


Hi,

Hello fellow Corel Users:

After buying Corel X3 and getting that awful 1606 Error message,

I finally found my way to the Corel Update & Patches page and downloaded the patches and installed them.

Then finally, after 2 days of trying, I succeeded in getting Corel to Install:

Go to the address below and install Hot Patch Number 1.

http://tinyurl.com/5e37qv

or

http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite?c=Content_C1&cid=1153321224268&lc=en&pagename=CorelCom%2FLayout&pid=1151092456309

It is a 3 step process, first download it, then execute it, then reboot your PC and try the Corel Installation again.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Icons will not open


Hi gdubb,

There could be many different causes for the symptoms you describe. It could be a hardware problem, corruption of system files or settings, a program (such as protection software) malfunctioning, a virus or spyware infection, or a deeper problem. I would recommend bringing the system into a local Geek Squad Precinct for a diagnostic check - it's likely to be related to a deep problem with the system.

While I'd normally try to offer specific advice, based on the information provided there isn't much I could recommend aside from bringing it into a Precinct for analysis. There are simply too many possibilities based on your description to provide detailed recommendations.

IP version6 upgrades


Hi Poonamhe,

If your home network is a typical network with a basic consumer router and PCs you'll require a new router or firmware update, as most routers currently only support IPv4. Installation of protocols already built into Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X. Windows Vista and Mac OS X already support IPv6 natively and Windows XP only requires the addition of an IPv6 protocol driver. It's possible to run IPv4 and IPv6 on the same systems on the same network without problems.

Because TCP/IP operates lower layers of the "OSI model", the vast majority of software applications will work perfectly without modification. Only software that makes changes to or makes direct use of lower-level TCP/IP functions will need to be replaced and this is somewhat rare.

Update Quicken 2005 manually
Visit Quicken Help & Support, select 2005 for Windows, and enter 3810 in the search field. Open the How Do I Manually Update Quicken 2005 For Windows To The Latest Release? link. This page has all of the patches for Quicken 2005. However, you only need to download the patch that has the highest R number. The latest patch carries all of the data from the earlier patches. In this case, you will want to download patch QW05R5PATCH.exe.

Click the file’s link. If you have Windows XP, a File Download – Security Warning may appear. Click the Save button. In the Save As window, choose a location to which you’d like to save the file and then click Save. When the download completes, simply double-click the file to start the patch installation.

(NOTE: This method involves downloading and installing a single patch file. If you don’t have an Internet connection but have a friend who does, you can download the file to his PC and then burn it to a CD [assuming your friend’s PC has a CD-RW]. Use the CD to transfer the file to your computer.)
