The file seem to be corrupt or damage, you can to repair it using the software CD or try to reinstall it and that should solve the problem.

    Hi...thanks for your response.
    To be clear, do I use the original CD to reinstall the software? Do I need to uninstall anything first? Is there a risk of losing anything when I do this?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hi you have to uninstall and then reinstall it again and you should use the original CD to install it again.

    Thanks...sorry to have to ask, but it's important. When I do what you suggest, is there any chance that the file that I am trying to open will be lost?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    No the file will not be lost if it is save on the computer, the software you which you are using should not affect that file, it is also a possibility that the file is damage thats why its not opening nut try the option i give you,but make sure you save the file first.

I'm using Microsoft Outlook. I have 2 messages in the outbox that have a huge attachment using power point. The attachment is too large to send. MS Outlook will not delete the two messages. It ignores...


Open the outlook, disable the lan connection or you can set the Outlook to Offline (click File > Work Offline, but don't forget to re-set it online after you are done). After you are done, right-click the file to be deleted while you press the Shift Key on the keyboard and select "Delete".

If the first step doesn't work, then move it to another folder (create a new folder) and delete the folder after you are done. (don't forget to do this in Offline mode or with disabled lan).

Again, you can try deleting the file directly from the folder. Open My computer, go to C drive as shown below (Note: User Name = Your current username on your computer):
Close the outlook and do this;

1. Windows xp:
C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook


2. Windows Vista/7
C:\C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
Locate the file name "outlook", must be the largest file, delete it and open your outlook. All the inbox will re-sync with your email, but your problem will be fixed.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Target folder not accessible.


Perform the steps mentioned in the below article.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810881

Also, try this:

CAUSE

This issue may occur if the folder that you cannot open was created on an NTFS file system volume by using a previous installation of Windows, and then installing Windows XP. This issue may occur although you enter the correct user name and password. This issue occurs because the security ID for the user has changed. Although you use the same user name and password, your security ID no longer matches the security ID of the owner of the folder that you cannot open.

For example, although you use the same user name and password, you may no longer have permission to open the folder after you complete the following steps:
1. Before you install Windows XP Professional, you change the actual location, or target location, of the My Documents folder to another volume.

2. You format the primary partition.

3. You install Windows XP Professional.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, you must turn off Simple File Sharing, and then take ownership of the folder:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing:
a. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
b. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
c. Under Advanced Settings, click to clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box, and then click OK.

2. Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message, if one appears.

4. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

In the Name list, click your user name, Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group.

If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

6. Click OK.

You may receive the following error message, where Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of:
You do not have permission to read the contents of directory Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.

7. Click Yes.

Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and the folder contents.


Also, try to create a folder in external Hard Drive and then try to back up the data.

I bought Quicken 99 (basic) when it came out. I installed and re-installed it succesfully up to Windows XP until this year. This past month the icon dissapeared from my desktop and this past week, when I...


You could search the WWW for that file ... I think your best course of action is to get a good back up - both on a hard drive and on a cd or dvd of your quicken file. Save your file under a second name also (see below). Get 2010 version, which they started advertising to Quicken users about 2 weeks ago for $78.00. Load the software then tell Quicken to load your file.

BE ADVISED - the copy of your file on your hard drive will be over written when it converts to the new Quicken. That is the reason you save as another name. The new copy will not run on your Quicken 99 - however, you still have 99, right? and you have the copy under another name to run on that, right?

So you should be in good shape either way.

I think your real 15 year record is that you used it for so long!

Tell me, did I just answer another Quicken question for you here?

Thanks

Perhaps you get a dialog box appear informing you of a problem with a .dll file, or your program will just not load! It is therefore worth checking to see if there are any corrupt system files using scannow sfc.
To do these simply go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:
sfc /scannow
This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.
It may ask for your Windows XP CD so have it at hand.
