Hi,

Good day. Your correct my friend. Usually if a program that is usually used in a computer then suddenly uninstall, all files that uses that program will show that message your getting because your computer cannot open them . What you need to do is to install the program or software again. For example, if your downloading a file in pdf you need to download adobe reader or if you are download a video file you need to download and install the player like mediaplayer, divx. You just need to make sure what type of file your downloading and you can select the option to check the internet for softwares that can run this file. Hope this information help you a bit. Have a great day

Whenever I try to download and open a new program, the computer asks me to choose a program to open it with.


Hi golfnutz
Usually a file is opened by a program that specifically handles that kind of file, for example MS word opens (amongst others) .doc files and .rtf files MS Excel opens .xls and .xlsx files.
A downloaded program would normally need to be installed before you can use it, if the program files are in a compressed format then they will need to be extracted before they can be installed.
Try right clicking on the files and if the menu that opens includes the option to extract all then select that.
You should be able to tell what sort of file you are trying to open by looking at the file extension, program files usually end with the extension .exe.

Hello I use verifone PCCharge, when I turn it on , an error message pops : "Password backup update failed.Shutting down PCCharge payment server"


PCCharge uses Access database, which is stored in .mdb file. Locate this file. Mine was in C:\Program Files\PCCW\PCCW.mdb.

- Back up this file.

- In the same folder where you found the database, there should be a program called VISDATA.exe. Double click on it to start it.

- Go to File > Repair Database, and point it to your database file (pccw.mdb).

- It will ask you if you want to open db, say no.

- Go to File > Compact Database, and point it to your database file.

- It will ask you if you want to compact to 2.0 or 7.0. I was told to use 2.0.

- It will ask you if you want to replace database, say yes.

- For encrypt, choose No.

- For open, say No.

- Close VISDATA.exe

- Try running PC Charge now.

- If it still gives you trouble, and if you don't mind losing all your history, move the pccw.mdb file out of PC Charge folder (C:\Program Files\PCCW\). Keep it somewhere else for backup, just get it out of PC Charge folder. Now, start PC Charge again. A new database will be created.

How To Clean Up Your Computer


Everything in life needs maintenance, and your computer is no different. Everything you do and see on your computer takes up space. Over time, heavy use can start to weigh it down and make your pc run slow. What can you do when your computer becomes cluttered and slow? That's easy! You can clean it up and reorganize the stored files for optimal performance.<br /> <br /> The first thing to do to clean up your pc is to run "disk cleanup". Disk cleanup is a program that deletes clutter and creates more useable memory. If you are using Windows Xp, you can find disk clean up by clicking on "start", then "programs" and "accessories". Then slide over to "system tools" and click on "disk cleanup".<br /> <br /> After clicking on disk cleanup, your computer will display a message that says it is calculating how much space can be recovered on your "C" drive. When it is finished, you will see a screen that shows choices of files in which to purge on the left and the "ok" button on the bottom. Click on every box that is available and choose ok to begin cleaning your disk.<br /> <br /> This process can take a while, depending on how long it has been since the last time you cleaned your computer. When its finished, the program will have removed all unnecessary files to free more memory space. But we are not done yet! There is still one more program to run the complete the process and leave your computer running at its best. That program is called "disk defragmentor" and its found in the same place as disk cleanup.<br /> <br /> To run disk defragmentor, click on "start", "programs" find "accessories" and then choose "system tools". Click on disk defragmentor and a window will open asking which drive you wish to defragmentate. Choose your "C" drive and then click "ok" or "defrag" at the bottom.<br /> <br /> Disk defragmentor reorganizes files to bring all of your free space to the front of the drive where it is needed most. <br /> <br /> Running both of these programs once every couple of weeks will keep your computer at its best.
