Whenever I try to download and open a new program, the computer asks me to choose a program to open it with.


Hi golfnutz
Usually a file is opened by a program that specifically handles that kind of file, for example MS word opens (amongst others) .doc files and .rtf files MS Excel opens .xls and .xlsx files.
A downloaded program would normally need to be installed before you can use it, if the program files are in a compressed format then they will need to be extracted before they can be installed.
Try right clicking on the files and if the menu that opens includes the option to extract all then select that.
You should be able to tell what sort of file you are trying to open by looking at the file extension, program files usually end with the extension .exe.

I have a scrolling bar on my laptop touchpad. gateway 7330gz. i recently had the OS upgraded and want to set the scrolling to work


Hello,

As you mentioned that you have updated OS, it is possible that the version of installed drivers for the touch pad are not compatible with the new OS.

I suggest you do is you go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest drivers. Most manufacturers offer an online support for the different drivers / software required by the computer.

This link is the direct link to download the latest drivers for your computer:Touchpad Driver

> Click on the link and download the drivers.
> Meanwhile go on Control Panel> Add / Remove Programs and uninstall Synaptics.
> Once the download is complete, launch the newly downloaded driver installation.
> After the installation is complete, restart your computer.

The touch pad should have now recovered all of its features.

Glad to help.
