  • Links or attachments are not open

    Hi all

    I have a Motorola Xoom Wi - Fi and if I get an email with a link or a pdf attachment, if I click on the link reduces the brightness of the screen and nothing happens.

    Same thing if I click view to look at a pdf attachment.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like the infamous bug of 3.2.

    When the screen fades, turn your Xoom 90░ so it changes the fashion landscape to portrait mode.

  • Safari and App Store are not open. Recently updated to El Capitan 10.11.4

    Please read this message before doing anything.

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It is unlikely to solve your problem. Don't be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.

    The test is intended to determine if the problem is caused by a third-party software that loads automatically at startup or logon, by a device, by a police conflict or corruption of system files or some system caches.

    Disconnect all devices wired except those required to test and remove all the expansion cards from secondary market, as appropriate. Start in safe mode and log on to the account of the problem.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or an earlier version, or if a firmware password is defined, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can not do this. Ask for additional instructions.

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run as normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things work at all, including an audio output and a Wi - Fi connection on some models. The next normal boot can also be a bit slow.

    The login screen is displayed even if you usually connect automatically. You need your password to log on. If you have forgotten the password, you will have to reset it before you begin.

    Test in safe mode. Same problem?

    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and make sure you always have the problem. View the results of the test.

  • .exe files are not open; affected by the Windows Security Center of lazy virus


    As the title indicates, none of my executables will open his; on the contrary, when I click on an icon or similar function (as in the start menu), I'm inclined to the screen 'open with... ». I noticed that most often, if I run the program as administrator, it is likely to work without having to manually find the file - still a bit tedious however.

    I'm assuming that since I was recently hit by the virus which is a fake Windows Security Center, something my registry has also been hit (take into account the fact that I'm not savvy computer in the slightest). It happened on my user account initial and rather than take action on the right, then, I decided that I would use the other account that I had to install a program better anti-virus (Norton provided ISP) than the one I had been using (the two admin). At that point, I had finished all my activity moved to the new account and it worked very well until the virus had one possessing this account as well - delete on the first user account seemed to have deleted only the effects of my account but still affected everything I did after that. This time, I went and deleted all accounts and checked to ensure that it is not at all. After getting rid of the virus, it's the same thing: none of my .exe files will open without using the monitor "open with...". ». I'm not really sure what action to take from here, I have not done much to remedy the situation, and I'm going right through the screen of "open with...". "to get to what whatever - so any suggestions or help would be very appreciated.


    • .exe files are not open (However, in some cases, the "Run as Administrator" option overrides it)
    • recently hit with (deleted) and fake Windows Security Center virus ; That's when the .exe is no longer
    • is not much in terms of addressing this problem, do not know what to do with regard to the question of if my situation calls for something specific

    I tried to cover everything that seemed important to address; However, if there is more need information, let me know. I am about average in terms of computer navigation and therefore my understanding of what many of these commands, functions and files is a bit Basic.

    Thank you! :)

    Thanks for the very comprehensive post. Run the Doug Knox fix (that isn't a .exe that you can do this).

  • After you disable the new interface to tabs, all new documents are not open in a larger window


    Yesterday I upgrade my Adobe 11.0.10 Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 15.010.20056 player. The tabs interface was pleasant enough, but there are still some limitations with this features, such as,.

    1 > no option to set no maximum. tabs in a single window,

    2 > tabs cannot organize, to be moved to a new window and several selected

    I want to disable the new interface to tabs via Preferences > General > open documents in the new tab in the same window (not checked), but after you turn off the new tabbed interface, all new documents open after the first document are not open in a maximized window, they always opened in a restored window.

    No matter what I do, it keeps - on the opening of the second new pdf in this one, restored windows are the things that I tried to overcome this.

    1 > right of the DC open Adobe Acrobat click in the task bar > Adobe Reader DC > right click > properties > run: enlarged - only the first document opened in maximized windows, documents later opened in the restored only, window that too seem to not work when I closed the last document in a restored window. Opening in the same window type is part of the windows operating system, it does all the time, "opens the entire application in the same way that they have been closed, either maximized/restored and the size of Windows too". Only the first one application window is open in this way, rest of the windows open is seems to be not supported by the operating system.

    2 > of this forum discussion & tstart = 0 , I checked for the mentioned, registry keys


    the default value is - "bNullDocMaximized" = DWORD: 00000001 , "bMaximizeNextDocument" = DWORD: 00000001 and "bResizeOnOpen" = DWORD: 00000000

    Exchange only tried on the third button (the rest has been preset to required values) - "bResizeOnOpen" = dword: 00000001 - restart > no change > reset to its default value

    What to do now...?

    Thanks in advance

    I always get requests to update on my office home page. After the most recent, most of my quick start icons are badges of adobe. Except a few functions are not open. When I right click on Firefox (for example) it says 'READ' rather than 'OPEN' and then displays the Adobe error box. The only other answer I received (from is that the update was a virus. I'm not computor savy and my pc is quite old. I just want to come an hour before this recent action, but I can't open Norton power eraser or even the ability of the computer to return to an earlier point in time to cancel the action. Each of these attempts of task appears Adobe error box. I am currently showing Adobe Reader X 10,0

    I have a new computer and try opening PDFs from other web sites. They are not open. What should I do to open these files?

    Thank you for your help, but I thought about it.  It was very simple & silly, something I would have thought from the outset. I had to add permissions to the pop-up blocker. Silly me had a "blonde moment"... no offense to blondes, just using the cliché. Laughing out loud!!

  • New PC with Windows XP, XP replacement. My PDF docs are not open

    New PC with Windows XP, XP replacement. My PDF docs are not open and I get the following messages: BE Adobe Reader could not open 'xxx.doc' because it is not a type of supported file or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an attachment to e-mail and has not been correctly decoded). OR Word now converts your PDF in an editable Word document. This can take some time. etc. Help please.

    You have Microsoft Word installed? If so, it seems that you need to change your file associations so that Word opens files .doc instead of the player. To do this, select a .doc file, right-click and choose "open with > choose default program", select MS Word and make sure that "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" is selected.

  • attachments does not open. specifically, .htm and winmail.dat

    I have here a user who receives htm and a supplier winmail.dat attachments. Winmail opener, I installed, but there are still a few that appear in white. The header of the email said photo or quote, so I know there must be a visible commitment there. I installed both of the lightning.

    have you contacted the seller to inform them that their email is unreadable due to configuration errors to their end. If you have questions and they send offers like that, they'd probably appreciate reactions.

    Then point to Microsoft resolution to the issue. & ui = en-US & rs = en-US & ad = US

  • My mozilla recently opened emails see the problem of loading pages and emails in the Inbox are not open and other email folders also not load

Only, he opens the Inbox and when I click on any mail in the Inbox, it opens the mail and immediately which automatically closes a few seconds and not be able to display messages.

    You can try the following steps in case of problems with web pages:

    Reload Web pages and ignore the cache to refresh potentially stale or corrupt.

    • Hold down the SHIFT key and click the Reload button
    • Press 'Ctrl + F5' or 'Ctrl + Shift + R' (Windows, Linux)
    • Press 'Command + shift + R' (Mac)

    Clear the cache and cookies only from Web sites that are causing problems.

    "Clear the Cache":

    • Firefox/tools > Options > advanced > network > content caching Web: 'clear now '.

    'Delete Cookies' sites causing problems:

    • Firefox/tools > Options > privacy > Cookies: "show the Cookies".

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    Looks like you have adware or malware on your system.  Download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac to get rid of it and to avoid in the future, the following types of sites:

    • XXX sites
    • torrent sites
    • Group download sites (CNET, Softonic, download (dot) com, MacUpdate, etc..)
    • MP3 download sites (Mp3 Skull, mp3monkey, etc.)
    • any site that says you can download something free that you would otherwise cost you money

    Malware/adware found on such sites, either in the form of pop-up windows or interstitials and delivered with Setup for whatever program you are trying to find.  If you have downloaded anything recently and it wasn't from the App Store or on the Web site, it is maybe how it got there.  You should also clear your caches and uninstall all extensions, that you don't remember installing.

  • docx and PDF attachments does not open in mail

    After you have uninstalled Open Office and Foxit reader, I can't open docx and pdf attachments.  XLS open without a problem.  Associations have been created.  Latest Adobe has been downloaded.  When I click on the input box, the icon shows that the files are Word or Adobe, but the message says still no association of this file.  No RT clk. available at least that I've save it first to a different location, and then of course, they open no problemo.  Any ideas?

    For the PDF.

    Create a file association.

    1. download and save the attachment to the office.
    2. right click on the saved file.
    3. Select: Open with on the shortcut menu.
    4. click on: choose [default] program.
    5. Select: Adobe Reader.
    6. check: always use the selected program to open this type of file.
    7. click on OK.

    This should allow you to open these attachments directly from email address now.

    Repeat for docx files, but choose Word to open in.
