Do you have full rights to these files or have lost the rights to them? To find this out, right click a text file, choose properties, click on the Security Tab, click on your name is the list pane. Do you see Full Control in the security options below?

Your Security Descriptors may be corrupted. Bring up the Run Command from the Start Menu, type 'cmd' without the apostrophes. In the command box type: chkdsk /f /x c: You should receive an option to reboot as Handles are Open on C. If you get an error message that you do not have rights to do this: Double Click My Computer, right click C drive, choose Properties, click on the Tools Tab and then select "Check for Errors" box. You will be prompted to restart you computer at some point. Let it restart and while it is restarting it will attempt to fix the security descriptor files. Once you get a Desktop you can try again. If you still have a problem, you will want to create a new account for Windows and then try again. If you still have an issue, you probably have malware or a virus that has infected your drive. Go online to Kapersky.com and run their online virus scanner.

Any questions, use the comment box below to ask away.

It is required to clear the temporary folder before downloading the Software. For this click 'Start' button then select 'Run' (you can open 'Run' by press and hold Windows button on the keyboard and then pressing alphabet key 'R'). Type '%temp%' inside the Run window, and you will get a folder opened. Delete all the files in the folder and close it. Now try to download the Software, it will work.
All the best.

Music file is a audio/mpeg size 7404968 edit.mp3 unable to open it.


These files may have been affected and corrupted by either virus or something else and have you try to open it with your window media player? if it doesn't open then the files are bad. But if they are corrupted, there is nothing you can do to open it unless you delete them.

I am unable to download a file. Please call me. 303-995-4469. I need to download that file today. ceredussault@msn.com


Have the person that sent you the email - re-send that email. Then instead of opening that email attachment, save it first to a location on your hard drive.

then you should be able to open it safely and completly.
