How can I change or fix .lnk file associations on Windows 7?


This is not an uncommon problem with vista. These lnk files should open the underlying exe file, but if the registry has been altered they will open something else. The following link will take you to a registry fix program that will restore the correct file association for lnk files.

www.winhelponline.com/fileasso/lnkfix_vista.zip

as always read the instructions and make sure that this will work for your version of windows. Not all fixes work for all versions. If you do not have vista or you have other doubts, go to the microsoft forums for your windows version and search for lnk files.

It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.

Scanning to PDF format.


I know that the Brother MFC-7840W came with a program called PaperPort, which will allow you to scan 1 or more documents into a PDF file. Perhaps your scanner supplied the same program.

HP C6180 will not print a PDF document, causes paper jam.


The problem is an incompatibility between Adobe Acrobat and HP Photosoft software... the solution is to stop using Adobe Acrobat software as your primary PDF reader... to see why and what is the alternative continue reading...

I had several Windows XP laptop/netbook/desktops running on my home wireless network perfectly. Then I had to replace the desktop with Windows Vista, and that's where the problems started. Despite updating the HP driver software, the Photosmart printer would not work with the Vista machine unless it was physically connected through the USB port. But this solution created a new problem with the wireless XP machines, they would now cause a print jam every time I printed a PDF. I had Acrobat Reader on one machine and Acrobat Pro on the other. Any other file format would print fine... I could print a PDF from within Adobe Photoshop... and re-installing the old HP driver software eliminated the problem (but then the Vista machine wouldn't print anything)... thus the problem had to be Acrobat.

With the newest updated HP software in place I uninstalled Acrobat Reader and installed a freeware readers. THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED. I tested three and all printed PDFs to the HP Photosmart printer with no problem. I tried Adobe Acrobat again, and it jammed. These freeware PDF readers are all small and fast compared to Acrobat which is big, bloated, and slow.

My suggestion is to use Foxit, which is the easiest and fastest, and seemes to work as a plugin with all the browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome). You can get it from trusted sites like CNET ( http://download.cnet.com/Foxit-Reader/3000-10743_4-10313206.html ) or from the company ( http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ ).

BTW, I do maintain Acrobat Pro on one machine because of the advanced features I use, but I configured it to not be the default PDF reader and print through Foxit on my home network.

By the way, ANYONE WHO SUGGESTS CONTACTING HP SUPPORT ABOUT PRINTERS THIS OLD IS BEING LAZY OR NOT PAYING ATTENTION... HP WON'T HELP UNLESS YOU PAY FOR THE INCIDENT, AND THEN THEY TELL YOU TO DO THE OBVIOUS (i.e., install new drivers) WHICH DOESN'T WORK, WHEREUPON THEY WILL SAY IT'S NOT AN HP PROBLEM BUT THE "OTHER GUYS" PROBLEM. Many people have played this game with HP before so don't waste your time and money expecting a different result.

    Can't download pdf file in yahoo mail even after installing adobe


    Hello.

    Seems that for some reson pdf files are assigned to your microsoft paint instead of acrobat reader.

    Try this....

    Find an already existing pdf file somewhere on your computer and right click on it and chose properties,
    A box will come up where you now click the button that reads "Change".

    A list of programs will appear where you now chose acrobat reader.

    That should do it.

    Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


    Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

    You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
