This message indicates a virus on your computer. The only way for you to open the drives is to right-click on the selected drive and open. Download Autorun Virus Remover which can resolve your issue. You can also try to download AVG Free Edition. Make sure to update both anti-virus Softwares.

Aspire 5750 keeps showing a message There is no associated program to perform the requested action and will not operateon windows 7 Home Premium. What can I do? . What can I do

What type of file are you trying to open? Are you trying to watch a movie, open a document that was written on an older computer, or some other file?

If the software that should open the file is on your computer but not associated with that file type, right click on the file and choose Open With > Choose default program. Then Browse through programs on your computer (Program Files and Program Files (x86) and their sub folders). Alternatively, click Start > Control Panel > Programs. Under Default Programs, select Make a file type always open in a specific program. Scroll down to the extension and add a program for it.

Many computers do not come with all the software you might want. In that case, you will need to get the software or a plug-in to add to your software. For example, a computer with a Blu-ray optical drive may not have the Blu-ray player software. Office files may have similar limits. (WordPad reads Word files; Excel and PowerPoint viewers aren't always included.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the file type you need to open for specific program suggestions.

You can also right click on the file and left click on "open with" and then select choose program. In the list of programs choose Adobe reader and then at the bottom of the window put a check mark next to "always use the selected program to open this kind of file"
This should take care of the issue

Okay, what happens when the program is used is that it changes the folder types, so they can not be accessed.The most common prom associates with those types of software is corruption, and you are now a victim of it. There is unfortunately nothing you can do about it, you can try to purchase a software and run a scan, but the likelihood is that your files are now gone for good. Also the company no longer supports this version of folder lock, so getting support out of them is going to be difficult. But, I might try to contact them, and see what they say, but there is nothing you can do.

Problem opening some attachments

You need to tell Windows what program you want to use when opening the file since you don't have any program installed that knows this file.

Do you know what kind of file it is? If not, you need to find this out.
Usually you get powerpoint or pdf files in your mail. To read these you need Adobe Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer.

Short, You need to install a program that can handle the files you get in your mail. What program depends on the file.

To know what kind of file it is you have to se what "extension" it have (the three letters after the dot). Normaly you don't see this, but to be able to see it open Explorer and do go through the following:

  1. select Start -> Settings -> Control Panels -> Folder Options
  2. select the View tab
  3. check "show hidden files and folders"
  4. Uncheck "hide file extensions for known file types"
  5. Click OK to finish
Now, save the file on your desk and check the last letters of the file. If it ends with .pdg it's a pdf-file, if it ends with ppt it's a power point file.

If it ends with something else, it needs a different program. To know which, just ask again :)
