I've tried that

Thanx for your quick feedback

I've already tried that, it doesn't give me the option to select "open with", thats why i'm struggling, every single program or file I try to open opens with windows media player.

Is there another solution
thanx

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key till you see the advance boot options, You should be tapping the key as soon as you see the manufactures screen. Once you get the advance boot options -> Select the option which says Repair your Computer once its Selected click next on the Keyboard Layout Option, Now it would ask you for a User name and Password, Click on the User name Tab and select User/Owner extra and Type in your password if the computer has one if not you can leave that field blank, then click on next, Now on the recovery options screen you would be able to choose System Restore, Command Prompt extra. I think with the issue your facing System Restore would be the best Option to do. Once its selected click Next and choose a Restore Point with the Date when the Updates Happened and initiate it. Once done you should be able to install the game without any issues.

Good Luck!!!!!

How can i uninstall babylon tabs?


This works for IE8.
Remove all traces of the Babylon software through the Add/Remove programs area then the Babylon folder from c/: Program Files (x86).
Go Tools, Internet Options, open the security tab then click on "Restricted Sites".
Open the "sites" window and fill in http://www.babylon.com/ in the area which says "Add this web site to the zone". When the address is typed in click "Add" then Apply.
If you find an address already in the box, perhaps your home page, then highlight it then enter the Babylon address.
Now open the "General Tab" in Internet Options and open "settings" in the "Tabs" area. At, "when a new Tab is opened,open" make a selection. I chose
the home page option as I use Google search as my home page as it is quite plain in appearance it loads quickly.
Worked for me.

Hello sir. when i go through my nokia e52 to control pannel - setting - connection - destinations : i got a message "system error " please give me a solution


From you end, you can try resetting the phone to it's default value, means "Factory Default". Open Menu, go to settings, navigate around and locate Factory Default. The steps should be like this.. Menu > Ctrl. panel > Settings and General > Factory Settings.. Open the Factory Settings, press ok and then enter 12345 when you are prompted to enter the security code. I hope you haven't changed the code yet, if you've changed it, enter the code you've already changed. Once it's confirmed, the phone will restart itself. You'll loose nothing by doing this, but all settings will be restored to it's default value. This is the basic and in most cases, this fixes minor issues. If this doesn't help you, you may likely need to update your phone software or you may need to flash your phone, to do these, you'll need to visit a Nokia Care or a Local mobile repair shop.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

If i try to download something,like a video,it says connect media to save destination


You do not have a default program for your video viewing or that particular video requires a specific program to be used. Ensure that your computer has a video player such as Windows Media Player if you are using a Windows OS or that you have Quick Time if you are using a Mac OS. If these programs are already installed, then you may want to ensure that they are set to be the default program for that particular video.
Download the video, then right click the video and click the option that says "Properties". When the box appears, click open with and select either Quick Time or Windows Media Player. To avoid doing this for every video, follow the instructions below:
WINDOWS OPERATION SYSTEM
  • Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click Explore.
  • Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to open in a program that you select.
  • Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your computer, complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
    • Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that you want.
  • The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to select the program that you want to use for this file type:
    • In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
    • Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and then click Open.
    • Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for the program that you want to use.
  • Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box if it is not selected.

    Cannot open volume for direct access in chkdsk and system is slow. already installed SP3, do not have spyware doctor or other conficting antivirus / netork software


    If you are facing the problem after upgrading to SP3 try system restore and see if that helps.
    Click on start->programs->accessories->system->system restore. It will give you 2 options
    1. restore system to an earlier date
    2. create a restoration point
    select the 1st option and select the date on which the system was working fine.
    This will resolve the problem.
