    I honestly have been having the same problem. There's no issue of the computer recognizing the external hard drive, but when I try to open anything (picture, mp3, movie file) it will say that it cannot find the file specified, as if none of the files were even there.

    My hard drive is my H drive, and for some reason it will not open files, regardless of what I do.

    Needless to say, I very much need every ounce of data on this drive, which is why I took it off of my laptop in the first place. For protective purposes.

    If there are any suggestions for going about getting these files to open (or somehow 'finding' them), please let me know. I feel incredibly silly not being able to use this drive after having it work beautifully since only Christmas.

I have several excel files stored on my system. I used these files from the same computer daily. Yesterday, when i tried to open several files in Excel 2007 then i found following error on my co,puter...

  • Navigate to the folder containing the XLSX file you want to repair.
  • Right-click the file and select "Copy" and then right-click on a blank space within the folder and select "Paste." This action generates a backup copy of the corrupted file.
  • Open Microsoft Excel 2007 or later.
  • Click the "Office" button in the top left corner of the window and select "Open."
  • Navigate to the folder containing the copy of the XLSX file you generated previously and select it by single-clicking its icon.
  • Click the arrow located to the right of the "Open" button and select "Open and Repair."
  • Select "Repair." If you previously attempted this method and the process failed, try to extract only the values and formulas by selecting "Extract Data" instead. Regardless of the method you choose, your data will appear on the screen within a few seconds if the process completes successfully.

    I dont know what the heck is up with my computer. Previously, just yesterday in fact, I could access all my D: Drives Folder, but today, when I accidently dragged (lets name them folder a and b), Folder A...

    This sounds a lot like something has taken over administrative rights to your computer, and limiting your access to your own folders. Try running Malwarebytes anti-malware to see if you have a trojan, rootkit or malware on your PC then try this program called unlocker1.8.7 to see if it will unlock the folder and give you permission to open it.

    Webcam software is not installing. It asks for file FixCamera.exe. So please help me out.


    What ever you do DO NOT INSTALL THAT, that a program that will monitor you via your cam!

    This is what i found about it and how you acn revove it:

    "The file is not a Windows system file. The program has no visible window. FixCamera.exe is located in the Windows folder, but it is not a Windows core file. The program is loaded during the Windows boot process (see Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). FixCamera.exe is able to monitor applications. Therefore the technical security rating is 62% dangerous"

    Won't work on vista

    I did this yesterday for someone. This is a workaround since there's no manual that refers to Vista setup:

    1. Plug in player
    2. Click on My Computer (mp3 player should show up)
    3. Click on the player (will show amount on disk to hold files)
    4. Find your music files and reduce the screen size; drag files to the player

    Since I don't use Windows Media Player much, I couldn't figure out the syncing thing since I had already copied the files and didn't want to do it over again. But...if you want them in a particular order, try this:

    1. First, create a new folder within the gpx player (click to rename - rock, classical, whatever).
    2. Then, open that folder and copy the files to it. When finished, go back to the folder (or highlight all the files within), right click and *create playlist*. Repeat for all consecutive folders.

    The first time I did this, I didn't create folders so all the genres were jumbled. The second time, I did it by creating folders. At least it's separating the categories now but I still have to scroll through if I want to go from rock to classical. Maybe that option doesn't exist since it's a pretty cut 'n dried player?...or else the WMP must be utilized. (I'm NOT going to try to figure that one out!) Very different from the IPOD.

    Hi Bry, this is so common with, my web search program.
    Try this. Right click once on the start button, (A pop-up window will open), slide up to Explorer & left click on it once. Right click once on the C:\ drive & left click Search from the list.
    In the search top window type the name of the file: m3plugin.dll
    Click search.
    Windows will find the file. Right click once on the file m3plugin.dll listed in the right hand side of the search window & left click Copy from the list. Windows Explorer is still opened. Scroll down to the folder, Program Files & left click the plus sign next to it. Program Files will open & you'll see all kinds of folders.
    Find the Mywebsearch folder & open it. Find the folder 1.bin, Right click once on that folder & left click past from the list.
    Close all opened windows & restart the system.

    Enjoy Bry!
