Preferred Solution: Major error opening up a document from my thumb drive

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Major error opening up a document from my thumb drive

This is due to the file format. You have to open the file with the same program it was created.

I am getting an error "The Bitlocker Encryption on this drive is not compatible with your version of Windows. Try opening in a newer version of Windows." 

The drive was encrypted on Windows 7 Enterprise.  I am running Windows 10 Pro.  I get this same behavior on another PC running Windows 10 Pro.  The hardware is a Surface 3 upgraded from Home to Pro.  TPM 2.0 is enabled. 


How do I fix this?

Greetings: when opening a document from email, I get the following message: "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem with an add-on and needs to close." then, "The following add-on was running when the problem occurred -- file: pdf.ocx. Company Name -- Adobe Systems. Incorporated. Description -- Adobe Acrobat Control for Active X. Protocat -- Hyper Text Transfer Protocal with Privacy. Type -- Com/WAM/MSGATTACHMENT?."

Then a window pops up from Adobe Reader:
"There was a error opening this document. The file is damaged and could bot be repaired."

It seems that when a considerable amount of time passes as the attachment is opening, is when I get the message. I am able to open some pdf files.

I use Windows XP and very much appreciate your time.

I am running Windows 7 home premium, with school computers the same, and an Android Razr Maxx.

I have Google Drive and it seems to be sharing docs well....I see them at home, at my work, on the Android phone....however I have this continuing problem: at my work, I go to open a doc or mp3 or PP or whatever from GD. It shows up in Google docs right away....but the file - download function doesn't always work; that is, it often won't allow me to access the original document......sometimes it will just time out and i'll get the "IE was unable to load page" or whatever message that you see when you don't have an internet connection....that happens a lot actually.

Also, I have mp3's in there, and when I try to open them, no dice.

I want to be able to simply open any doc or PP or mp3 in its original form. Sometimes I can, usually I can't, so, big source of wasted time and frustration. To be clear: most of the time, I dump these files into GD from my home computer. Any help appreciated!

Hey all,

I have an employee that is on windows 2000 that can open most of his adobe files. Some of them will get this error message:

Error Opening Document. Access denied.

The employee was getting the files emailed to him. He opens them and saves them to his C drive. These files are encrypted but he never set them up for that. The adobe files that he can open are not. He is using version 7 and he uninstalled it and reinstalled the most recent version 7. Still has the same problem.

Haha anyone know how to get these files open or why this is occuring?

Question: thumb drive error

computer won't open thumb drives. Says they need to be formatted even though they work fine in other computers.

Answer:thumb drive error

Need more info.Brand and model of thumb drives?How were the drives originally formatted?Specific version of Windows and service pack on the computer that's not working?Versions of Windows (or other OSes) you successfully tested the drives on?Without that information, the only thing I could recommend trying at this point is taking the drive to a computer the drives work on, copying everything off, then taking it back to the problematic computer and letting it format. Then take it back to the original computer, copy the files back on, then try again.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3. Both new and old document are open (2 windows).Other notes in no particular order:- Word has always operated like this. Just wondering if there is a way to stop it.- I am not using the "Open" function in Word to open the older file, I am opening the older file by double-clicking it in the File explorer. When I use the "Open" function in Word, it does the same (basically "closing" the new file in order to open the old one). - I tried searching through Word's settings but couldn't find anything that seemed to relate to this behavior.- As per regular Word behavior, the new document is auto-na...

Answer:Microsoft Word Question (Opening old document closes new empty document)

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

The error message is, windows is encountering a problem. windows explorer is restarting. I've tried formatting the thumb drive in vista and xp, uninstall and reinstall the drivers. format my hard disks, but none of them seems to work. Is there any solution for this or there's a compatability issue between xp and vista?

Answer:Error Transferring Video Files From XP to Vista Using Thumb Drive.

I had the same problem with a 32 Gig flash drive and the advise from this forum was that - for some reason - the capacity of the thumb drive is "layered" meaning that you can't just dump a 5 gig file onto the drive as it gets scattered in the process across the so called layers.

I kind of confirmed this my transferring a very small video - about 1.5 gig - and it went across fine.

Kind of annoying I reckon. Maybe somebody will respond helping us both out on this one!

Hello,

For the last few days I have been experiencing a problem. Whenever I open a Text Document my Floppy Drive keeps scanning. I don't have any Floppy Disk in the drive and it scans for about 10 seconds. I have Norton Internet Security 2004 installed and I think it may be that the AntiVirus keeps scanning the Floppy Drive. I am not sure on how to disable scanning the Floppy Drive and if someone knows how to do it could you please instruct me on how to disable it. If there are any other ways to help me with this problem could you please post some suggestions.
Thank You!

Hi.

I have a dell 8400 running XP Sp 3. For some time now I have not been able to read my thumb drives. When I plug them in it simply returns "Unknown Device" error. I have deleted the usb ports and let XP rediscover them as well as having reloaded the chipset firmware. Still nothing. The thumb drives work fine on other systems and other usb devices (printers keyboard & mouse) work fine. Any ideas out there?

I'm assuming you've tested other USB devices in the ports, and the ports do work?

Hi.
I wrote this thread in "performance and maintenance section" so I had to create another one here. Sorry.

I have a text file on my portable hard disk (WD 250 GB) named urgenttttttttttt.txt
you would have already assumed how important this file would be and it is updated daily. The size of the file is 545 kb which is HUGE for a notepad. I opened the file 3 days ago and it gives me an error:

"cannot open the K:\Mainnnnnnnnnnn\usb\urgenttttttttttt.txt file
make sure a disk is in the drive you specified"

There are many text documents in my hard disk and many even in the same folder but every document is fine but there is a problem in this particular file. I recovered this file using shadow explorer but the recovered file is 518kb in size and many new things i wrote in the notepad are GONE. I have some private text in the document or i would have uploaded it on some site for you. I am unable to copy or move this file to other folders.

There is another error related to this, I deleted an iso file that was in the same portable hard disk by mistake (even from recycle bin) and tried to recover it using "disk digger" (best recovery software for huge files!!). But I get an error which I have never seen before..

"There was an error while reading from the disk: Data error (Cyclic Redundancy error). How would you like to proceed" and no option works out.

Answer:Text document error: make sure a disk is in the drive you specified

I assume that you were trying to read the file directly from the external drive. What happens if you copy the file to an internal drive first? If Explorer won't let you copy, try dropping to a command prompt (Win+R, run cmd.exe) and running "xcopy K:\Mainnnnnnnnnnn\usb\urgenttttttttttt.txt c:\ /C". Replace c:\ with another destination if you wish. The /C switch tells it to ignore errors.

Dear Major Attitude,

I am new to the forum, but I am trying to help my Mom out with her PC and spyware/adware/viruses she has.

I was looking at your READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT document and I am a little confused.

Under the Scanning And Cleaning Steps section, Item 3, you suggest two online virus scanners.

The confusion I have is that your previous 2 steps are talking about tasks while being booted in Safe Mode.

Then you talk about running McAfee AVERT Stinger, followed by performing an online scan.

Then you later say (between item 6 & 7) that the final 2 Optional steps require you to reboot back to Normal Mode.

Don't you need to be in Normal Mode to connect online and run one of the online virus scanners?
 

Answer:Msg for major attitude, re: README FIRST document

With Windows 2000 and Windows XP there is a safe mode with Networking option that allows you to have network access even in safe mode.

Hi, 
all my Wordpad 'rich txt' documents open smoothly in the blink of an eye except for one i've called my  'Writeups' doc, I paste articles and items from around the net into it.
As I've added more items to it over the months, it's got slower to open and clunkier to scroll through, and is almost on the point of freezing.
I've tried juggling the 'Wordwrap to window/ no wrap/ wrap to ruler' settings but they have no effect in speeding it up.
Here's a typical section from it, do you think it's the clickable links in it  (blue text) that are slowing things down? There are dozens in there-
 

 
I save it in Wordpad 'rich txt' format just like my other docs, and like I said they work fine.
Shall I try a different format for 'Writeups'? The other format options are-
Office open XML
Open docu text
Plain text docu
Other formats
 
but I know nothing about them.

It is bothersome only because I use the "Send To" command for many files. is there a way to stabilize this or is it just another XP annoyance I must put up with.
thanks
 

Answer:windows XP keeps alternating drive letter for thumb drive

goto control panel
Admin tools
computer management
disk management
in the right hand side you should see all the drives
go to the the drive that you want to change the letter ID
right click - then choose "change drive letter" a box will appear with the current letter
choose a new letter and click ok then its all done same letter every time

I often set to X, Y, Z for external and any mapped drives

I would think for any full fledged av program you could put the exe. file on the flash drive and then install it on most any computer. Such programs as Avast, Antivir, and AVG should work in that manner.

Hello

in the last couple of days when i try to open an excel document, i get this installation message which informs me that

"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not availabel.

Insert the "microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage' disk and click OK.

why did this happen all of a sudden, a few days back everything was working perfectly. i have misplaced my office xp, is there some sort of patch available on the net which will fix this problem?

Answer:problems opening excel document

Seems like you either haven't installed Excel XP, or somebody deleted it.

If you don't have the install disk, use OpenOffice. It works the same as MS Office, it's just free! No differences between them except for designers.

I have MS Word 2003 and have been having trouble with it the last few months. If I do not have MS Word open, and I double click on a specific MS word document on my computer, one of two things happens:
1) MS Word opens up, but not that specific document
2) I get an error message saying that MS word can't find that specific document

In either case, I double click on the specific MS document again, and it opens up fine the 2nd time. It's just frustrating.

Any thoughts? If MS Word is already opened, any specific document I try to open works fine.
I'm not sure if it is interrelated, but also, when my outlook is open and I try to click on a web link from an email, if my web browser (firefox) is not already open, I get an error message as well, and I have to open my web browser first and then go back and click on the link again. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case there was some connection.

And now they're all messed up. Boy I was doing so well as far as not making stupid mistakes on PC for a long time. Guess I was overdue for a screw-up! I run Vista Home Basic x64 and I have about 20-30 Word 2003 document files.

I just through reformatting and loading windows, but it was before I installed Microsoft Office 2003 and I had to get a serial number from one of the document files. Of course, as you know, it's not a complete Microsoft Word document until I install Office 2003, so I opened it it Wordpad (ughh!). Anyway the wording was all messed up and there were all kinds of strange characters in there, but the information that I needed was in there.

So I closed the document, and of course, then the icon changed to wordpad or something strange. Anyway, I didn't think much of it. I've done that before, but when I installed Office, everything would automatically turn into an official word document and the word icon would show and all. But not this time.

This time I opened up the folder where I keep all of my word dcouments and all of them now have this strange icon showing and when I try to open them I get a message that says bla bla bla, is not a valid win32 application. But I didn't panic. I went into defaults and checked to see what was associated with .doc and it's the Microsoft Setup Bootstrapper (Not quite sure what that is)

Hello everyone, I've been having some issues with Word 97 lately and I'm absolutely stumped. Any help would be wonderful...

Twice now, I've had Word 97 tell me that it cannot open select documents; a few weeks ago I tried to open a doc and it gave me this message:

Word cannot open the document.
Try one or more of the following:
* On the File menu, click Open to open the document.
* Make sure the file has a .DOC extension

I did both; it would not open from the File menu and it DID have a .doc extension. I tried everything I could think of to get it back, including moving it to another computer and trying to open in there, renaming the document, everything. The closest I got to getting it back was opening it in WordPad - even then, it ate certain paragraphs up and lost the last page completely.

After having no luck at getting it back, I decided that since the document was only 3 pages long, I could stand to retype it and deleted the document. I had no problems opening up any of my many other documents; and so I figured, somehow that one file got corrupted and I just needed to cut it as a loss.

But now, it has happened again with another, much longer document. Again, I can get some of it back with WordPad/RTF, but not all of it. As before, all other documents are fine and openable, just not this one. I have scanned for viruses and the like - my computer seems to be clean. I have moved all my other documents to a removable flash drive so that they don't... Read more

Answer:word opening document at startup

If you want to open Word with no document showing, not even a blank one, make a shortcut to "winword.exe" wherever you want it or use one you already have. I discovered that you can do this with a shortcut already on the Start Menu under Programs or one on the desktop but you cannot do this with a Word shortcut that's "pinned" to the Start Menu. You can either use an existing shortcut or make a new one, add the change below and then pin it if you like.

Right click on the shortcut and go to Properties. In the "Target" field, at the end of the path add one space and /n. Click OK.

When you click on that shortcut, Word will open "blank," that is, no document showing.

On the other hand, if you do want it to open with a blank document but it's opening one with data in it, it's likely that the file that's opening is a document that accidently got saved as "normal.dot." To save that document and return normal dot to it's blank state, open Word, click on Save As, make sure that "Word document (.doc)" (without the quotes) is showing in the Save As Type field, and save it wherever you like. Close Word.

Then search the harddrive for "normal.dot"...it's a hidden file so make sure in Folder Options>View that "Show hidden files and folders is checked...and delete it.

One or the other of these solutions should work...unless I've completely misunderstood the question.

For unknown reasons, I might have carelessly deleted the a file in my XP Pro system using CCleaner, currently causing me unable to open a hard drive folder.

Now when I double-click the C drive or a inserted USB flash drive, a "Open With" window pops up and asks me to choose a program to open this hard drive. It's weird and I kind of know that a file(maybe something like auto.inf file) is missing. usually when I click that drive, it opens the drive. Right now I have to click windows explorer to view the documents inside the drive.

Can anyone give me a hand of solving this problem? Thank you very much!!
 

Answer:Solved: Error at Opening a Hard Drive

It is due to the corrupted autorun.inf created by the virus is remain on the drive, hidden as system file.

Deletion is the simplest way to fix it. First, we need to enable the view of the file.
On My Computer, click the menu Options -> Folder Options
On View Tab -> Advanced Setting textbox, untick &#8220;Hide protected operation system files (Recommended)&#8220;, and click Yes for the pop up warming.
On all infected drive, delete the file autorun.inf

Since the autorun.inf(s) have been loaded into system memory upon booting, you need restart the PC to get the work done!

Of course, after the reboot, don&#8217;t forget to tick back &#8220;Hide protected operation system files (Recommended)&#8221; checkbox on Options menu -> Options -> Advanced Setting textbox. You won&#8217;t want to see a lot of annoying system files floating around your folders and taking the risk of deleting them accidentally in the future, these consequences may worth re-installing the OS and all applications!!

I am using Win XP SP2 on an Athlon dual core processor machine. When I open My Computer and then open the C: folder I get a Data Excecution Prevention error listing Windows Explorer as the program it wants to close. This happens even though I have just booted the system and have not yet started Windows Explorer.
This error is preventing me from accessing any of the folders on my main drive (C:). I can access all other hard drives on the system with no problem. Drive C: is the only drive affected. When I access the Security folder under the control panel, I do not see DEP listed so am unable to try to turn it on or off to see if that has any affect. This problem appeared about a month ago and I don't remember what I might have done to cause the problem. Could Memory modules cause this? I might have swapped the two modules that I have. I understand that DEP is only available on Win XP SP2 and that I should be able to turn it on or off if my hardware processor supports this feature. Because I do not see DEP under the Security Option of the control panel, it seems to me that DEP should not even be active on my machine.

Using the menu option I could convert to frame and read text that way (a job rejection letter!)Anyway, I then forwarded the email to my yahoo email account, where the attachment was scanned and the document opened in all its glory, including the company logo and graphics.....So far I have checked that both documents are loading up the same version of word (same license number and version) and am stumped......I have norton installed on my PC so at the moment am debating if there is a problem with that when it is scanning the ntl delivered document (if it is) or maybe even if my outlook needs reinstalling.I can't blame ntl if the document forwards to yahoo ok.reopening the attachments for both sources several times and I get the same result so it isn't a one-off glitch.....Confused? Oh yes....

Answer:word document not opening properly from email

Word is opening the document differently from outlook. It opens it in report layout and I have to click on the actual page button to display the contents of the document. If I save the document and open it it opens up normally. very odd.

Running Microsoft Office 2003 (11.5604.5606) on Windows Vista Home Premium.

First, any time I start an Office program, I am required to accept the license agreement, even though I have accepted that same agreement every one of the hundreds of times I've stated an Office program.

Next, when I exit Word, it asks me if I want to save the changes to normal.dot, every time I close Word.

Next, I can double-click on a Word document to open it in Word and Word says the document doesn't exist. I have no problem copying these same files to a flash drive and opening them on the same version of Word on another computer.
 

Answer:Solved: Word says the document I'm opening does not exist.

What happens if you open Word first and use FILE >> OPEN ??

Answer:Opening a PDF document causes a BSOD on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Hi George, what is this computer? What version of Windows are you running? Are you using the latest version of Adobe Reader? Get into Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, start up and recovery settings. Un-check "automatically restart"

When I try to open a word document in one of my folders, I double click to open it and it goes to PDF instead. I am tired of having to specifically designate open it in word from the start menu.

Answer:When opening a word document, it automatically opens a PDF

There are a handful of ways to adjust file-type association. One such way is to right-click the Word Document and go to Open with > Choose default program.Either choose among the Recommended programs, or the list of Other programs, or click the Browse button and choose a program yourself (assuring you find the program executable itself, not a setup file for the program).After choosing the appropriate program for that file-type, click the checkbox next to "Always use the selected program for this type of file."Click Ok and the file should open in that program. Additionally, all other files of that same file-type should open in that program too, unless file-type association is later adjusted.Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

I'm getting a new file issue these days when I open Word docs:
"There is a problem saving the file.
Usually this is because the disk or floppy disk is too small for the file or is full, RAM memory is low, or there is a permission problem with the drive the file is being saved to.
If the amount of disk space for a paging file is low, save the file to another drive. If the RAM memory is low, increase available RAM. If permissions to the drive do not allow you to save to that drive, save the file to another drive or request permissions from the administrator to save files to the drive.
Note: This error can also occur if the computer is running a version of antivirus software that is not compatible with the Microsoft Office system or needs to be updated."
I use AVG.

My storing location for these files is: C/Users/JoanneOSKelly/MyDocuments/CVsResumesEtc
Please help! I'm hoping I'm just saving it to the wrong drive?
