Question: Text Document - KB

This is probably something very elementary, but what are all these files that say Text Document that begin with KB and then have 6 numbers. Are they important to the operation of my computer or its programs?

Preferred Solution: Text Document - KB

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Text Document - KB

KB usually refers to the microsoft knowledge base and the files are associated with
installed windows updates.

Hello to all of you. This is my first post. I hope that this is the appropriate forum for this particular problem that I have.
This morning I accidentally forgot to restore some text to a Rich Text Document (rtd) before closing it; as a consequence I lost that portion of text (which is a portion that I didn't have the luxury of losing). Is there a way for me to regain that portion of text after the fact of having lost it? (I haven't been able to figure out a way to do it.) If someone can provide me with instructions as to how I can do that I would appreciate it. And if it isn't possible that I can do that then I would appreciate someone confirming it for me so that I can just let it go and move on to my next fiasco.

Hello everyone and thanks for your time.
I have been using Windows 7 for a long time and have gotten used to all the keys, mouse movements etc for opening stuff. Recently I bought a new Laptop with same version of Windows installed (Ultimate). However, when I right click the Desktop, the context menu of New does not show the option to Create a New Text Document. This is proving to be a real pain in the back . I have Notepad installed (by Default as it should be), and double-clicking *.txt files opens it, but the shortcut is nowhere to be seen. Please tell me why this is so and the easiest and most painless way (preferably without the need to Install something e.g. Registry Entry or Portable Program/Single *.exe Program would be better) to do it.

I don't use OpenOffice myself so I could be wrong but I don't think that MS Word can open OpenOffice Write documents if they have been saved in its native format.

Not long ago, I was able to open up Documents, type a word in the search bar, and any document containing that word within the text would come up. Recently it only brings up documents with said word in the title. It'll bring up Notepad (.txt, I think) files containing the word within, but not Wordpad, which I use almost exclusively. I've tried changing settings and everything I could think of. I could open every single one and click the binoculars that let me search within the opened doc, but I got a job...

Any solutions?

Please check your search setting in explore (I assume that's the search engine)? If not what software are you opening to search with?

In explorer initiate a search & then stop it. Click Search options & check your settings there: -

It seems that file is merely a log file of the error that was generated by the device when it was unplugged. It doesn't hold any pictures inside the file, merely a computer message that says there was an error transferring the photos. If they are still on the device (it sounds like they should still be), it should be easy to just transfer them again.

I've never had this problem before, so I don't know if it's got to do with how Windows 8 is set up, if there's a bug with OneDrive, or what, but I spent all day typing up a document- saving it several times throughout -before I saved it one last time to unplug my computer and take it to my bedroom. When I plugged it back in again, started it up, and opened the document to go over it again, the entire document was blank. I could highlight a huge chunk of the paper, but there were no words, no indentations, and no separate paragraphs. My font had been Calibri, and now it says that it's Courtier New. What's happened? OneDrive online won't even open it, and when I copy the invisible text to a new page, to see if the page itself is maybe corrupt, the only thing that pastes is one line like someone tapped the enter button on a brand new page.
This frustrates me to no end, and it's happened before. In the past, I've caught it quickly enough that I can access it on OneDrive before it updates itself online, and I can save it. But the messed up file updated itself too fast for me to salvage anything this time.
In the past, I've also had this happened when I attempt to open OneDrive too quickly after restarting my computer.

2/also, on a brochure, there are diff. pictures, and i want to extract one of the pictures and use it as logo; what's the easiest way to grab just that picture from that page?


Answer:need help extracting text from a scanned document

Scanning text as text rather than an image requires OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. Most scanner software includes some version of OCR.

If you scan the document in using OCR, you might have an easier time of it when converting to pdf and I know you'll be able to copy text.

Unfortunately, OCR is limited in what it can do. It has to look at the document being scanned and basically guess what character the mark on the page represents. The more limited (i.e., cheaper) the OCR software, the worse it will be at guessing. The poorer the quality of the original (faded type, photocopier smudges, colored paper, etc.) the more often it will guess wrong. The more heavily formatted the document (forms, tables, borders, lines), the more mistakes the software will make.

After you've scanned using OCR, just open it in a word processing program and clean up any mistakes.

As far as getting one image from a page, just scan the page in as an image, open it in some graphic/picture editing software (even MS Paint should be able to do this), use the selection tool to select the picture and either copy and paste it into a new image or use the "crop" or "edit" feature of the software you use to take out everything but what you have selected. Then save it.

The text in my documents is in a fairly narrow column, instead of spread wide to the edges of the program screen. Things were find on another computer, but when I moved to a new PC and started loading up documents they were narrower.

Note 1: The documents print fine. It's only their appearance on the screen that's narrow.

Note 2: Nothing in the 'page setup' options area has helped.

I'm trying to create what for all intents and purposes is an e-book that includes some animated figures, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this.It will be a very long text document (circa 80,000 words), which will need to have consistent styles, automated numbering systems for headings, figures, etc, and a means of handling references, such as what you see with EndNote and similar programs. The animations are currently gif images, and they will need to loop when displayed in the document. The final product would be saved as a pdf, which I understand is capable of displaying animations?Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2010 to handle animations, and if so, how? I know it's capable of all the other requirements, although it's a bit dodgy and prone to corruption with long documents, so I'll use sub-documents and a good backup system to get around this.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Thanks in advance for your advice.

Answer:How to create a text document with animations

To the best of my knowledge, you can NOT display animation in a Word doc.If you save the document as a Web page, you can see the animation with a browser,but that does not sound like what you have in mind.Powerpoint may be an alternative, but I'm not sure.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Here is a couple of lists: can probably find more using a Google search.MIKE

Please excuse my ignorance in advance. I have been totally left behind by the speed of the technology. I defragged my hard drive and the report stated that this file would not defrag. McAfee\MBK\Exceptions.txt. I have found out that the MBK is a McAfee Backup folder, but the text file is huge (6,012,106KB). It is so large that I was even afraid that I didn't have an application to open a file that large. I know that this is a text file, but am unsure of why it won't defrag. or if I can safely delete it. I do know that I want it gone if possible. Any help or info that can be given would be greatly appreciated. This is the msg. that I got when I checked on this file - Displays the path and name of the most fragmented files on the volume and the number of fragments, those files are in. If you use these files frequently, there might be a large impact on your system performance.Many Thanksozhawk

Answer:Is It Safe To Delete This Text Document

Hello ozhawk,

The file in question is not that large, it is around the same size as an audio file. The probable reason for it not being defragged is that mcafee is using the file to perform operations. If you want the file gone, you will most likely have to remove mcafee and install an appropriate substitute for mcafee.

I use OpenOffice Writer and I wrote several pages of text that's really kinda important and I have no idea about computers at all so getting it back isn't going well. Basically, I've got an old laptop and occasionally the battery dies without giving me any notice before hand (I try to keep an eye on it but I get absorbed in my work so that usually ends badly), however a lot of the time openoffice manages to recover the work I've done. In fact this is the first time that I can remember when it hasn't been able to. So I'd love to know how to recover my lost work - it's not a full document, just the stuff I was working on today, but it's still a lot of work and I need it back. Help please?

Answer:lost text from a recovered document

You will only be able to recover up to the latest AUTOSAVE. The timing of these is up to you to set from within OpenOffice (and I don't know what it defaults to).
You might try looking in your TEMP folder - wherever that is set to- , or, your Office TEMP folder if that is different (it is in MS Office).

I suggest that if you have an iffy machine, you set the default to a shortish time.

Okay, I seem to be lucky enough to get all of the "weird" situations. I have a three page document and just two areas on page 3 show the words as totally being reversed. The original document was created in Word 2003 (on a PC) and the laptop uses the Microsoft Office 2010. When the document is opened on the laptop, this issue happens, but when I take the same jump drive and open it with the PC using Word 2003, everything is perfect.

Is there any way to fix this on the laptop documents? Any idea what causes this or why it happens?

Hi, firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to consider this post.
My problem is this: A paper I had spent a few months writing got accidentally deleted from a USB which I had saved it to- and unfortunately I was dumb enough not to back it up. After basically breaking down, I found out about a program called eSupport Undelete Plus and got a copy. After installing it, I was able to easily find the file- and had regained hope as the program stated it's status to be "Excellent", as opposed to "Fair" or "Overwritten". But, my feeling of triumph quickly became diminished after I restored the file and opened it to only see a mish-mash of strange characters... which prompted my visit to this forum. The file size is about 29KB, which is the size I (strangely) remember the original copy to have. Hopefully there is a way to 'translate' this seemingly bizarre format? I would appreciate any support offered. Thank you again.

hi there - my father is working on a large word document in word 97 - he is not very computer literate and has not been backing up his files. He has somehow managed to delete virtually all of the text on around 160 pages, and this version of his document has been saved (he only has 2 characters on 1 page in total). I have gone into the versions option in the File menu, but there are no previous versions listed, I guess because he had not activated this function. Everything points toward the information being lost, except that if i look in the file's properties it seems that the file still appears to be about the right size (around 660kb). Does this mean that his text may still exist somewhere in the file, and may then be recoverable? (i would have thought with virtually no text the file should be much smaller). It also says that there have been 98 revisions of his documents. Is there any way to access an earlier revision, prior to him deleting all of this text?

I would appreciate any information or advice extremely, even if it is just to clarify that he has lost this file for good.

You can scan it using Optical character recognition (OCR) software if the scanner supports it and save it as a word document or and RTF. Unfortunately it won't retain the formatting very well and it will struggle with some of the special characters.

I just sent an e-mail to a doctor but it came back undelivered--apparently the address was out of date. Rather than type it all over again, I assume I can simply copy my e-mail text to a new Word document using the Edit feature. What are the steps to doing that?

Answer:How To Copy E-mail Text To A New Word Document

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.) Then press Ctrl+C You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.Hope that's what you were after.

I need help with this document. It's damaged. Until now, I only thought that it could not be copied or successfully submitted onto a website. Now, however, I found out it's worse: I opened the document, and some of the text is gone. In place of it are squares, symbols, and a ton of column and page breaks. The document never HAD any columns in the first place! It was a simple document, words only, Times New Roman font, just one indented paragraph after another, with a few ~'s here and there. That was it.A huge chunk of the text is gone. I opened Microsoft Word help, and entered in "recovering lost text" and pressed search, and it told me this:Recover the text from a damaged documentLearn about preventing loss of work. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.Make sure the Confirm conversion at Open check box is selected, and then click OK.Click Open .In the Files of type box, click Recover Text from Any File.Open the document as usual. I did all of that, and it ALMOST worked...almost! Except it didn't give me back ALL of my document. It gave me back about half of it, minus the chunk that I really wanted back; it didn't give me back any of the stuff I didn't already have, because, you see, the text gone is about half through the document, and it goes for a few pages with the squares, symbols, and column/page breaks, then it repeats some paragraphs I had at the document beginning, and then it skips to the end of the document. Meanwhile, this hug... Read more

Answer:Recovering lost text from Word document

Hi,Which Microsoft Words do you use? Which formatte did you save in? What extension, .emz? The wired charaters are ASCII codes, sounds like it is a compressed file and when you try to open it, it wasn't decomperssed.Richard.

I am trying to put together a package, made up of several different word documents. Some of the information is the same from one document to another. Is there anyway I can put in a formula or something to have the information transfer to all the different documents, in the appropriate place within the documents, without copying and pasting it each time? Ideally I would like to be able to put the information on the first document, which happens to be a label, and then have certain fields automatically copy to other fields in multiple documents. Not sure if this is possible, or if it is just wishful thinking.
Thank you to anybody who can help me.

Hi Alanda,

I suspect that what you are trying to do could be accomplished by setting up a macro. GO HERE and see if that will help you out.

Good day!

I use Office2000 with Windows98SE. Lately, I've been unable to use Word's Find files feature, which permits you to find, e.g., any files stored in a folder that contain specified text. I rely on this feature for writing, and would really appreciate any help.

I have folders containing Word documents that I need to search periodically to see which contain a specified word or phrase. The feature used to work fine. Now when I run Word's Find feature, Word shuts down and gives an error message: "Word has caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at [various memory locations]."

I have tried using Word's Detect & Repair feature, but this will not cure the problem.

Many thanks for your help!

I have read previous posts on this but am unable to get text over to Word.
MS Office Document Imaging allows scanning directly to DI. The image transfers to Word OK but without the text boxes.
I suspect because the boxes are lines and and not text. In DI I can add the text but it does not get to Word. If I print from DI
all I get is the text that was added but not the rest of the form.
Where do I go from here?

Can someone give me a code sample to insert a small txt file into a completed document. I have a Word 2000 template with a custom userbox and in one of the fields on the userbox, I want to give the option to insert a very small notepad text file into the document, if that option is selected, and I don't know what the code should be. Thanks.

I have an end user with Office 2003 Basic. In his Word application he is unable to select text with the mouse. The mouse will work in the toolbar and it works just fine in Excel. He can select text with the arrow key, he can edit the document so it is not protected and you can see the mouse down in the document.

I have uninstalled, reinstalled, did the, removed, renamed as Microsoft as said to do with no luck.

Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.
