Cannot access files Word or picture on Windows XP

Can anyone help? As soon as we try to access a son of file or photo Word on Windows XP, we receive a message saying: "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." The problem started a couple of weeks, every time we tried to open the my recent Documents option, but has now affected every Word file or a photo on the computer. The file opens, but then the message and the computer always freezes and crashes. We cannot now access one of our files. Anyone know what we can do to solve this problem?

  • Cannot access files on hard disk on windows xp, after I worked with it on win 7.

    Cannot access files on external hard drive on windows xp, after that I worked with him on Victory 7.I can see the file, but he says "is not accessible. access is denied. " Can someone help me?

    As you can guess, this is a permissions problem.  Here, it makes a difference if you have XP Home or Pro you have to safe boot mode to change permissions in the House.

    My crystal ball says that your external drive is formatted with the NTFS file system.  When you connected to Windows 7 (or any other computer besides), the files have been added that this user permissions apparently understood that only Win 7 has access to.  There are several ways to handle this...

    Is to save on all your files and reformat the external hard drive with a FAT32 file system and then support files.  You will have no problems of permissions with FAT32, but you can't have any higher than 4 GB single file either.

    Another way is as an administrator, to 'Ownership' of all the files on the disk
    "How appropriate a file or a folder in Windows XP"
       <> >
    but this could get old if the drive moves back.

    Yet another approach is to give "Everyone" full access to everything on the drive.  This may or may not protect against new folders or files added, but may be worth a try:
    As a user administrator, open a command window:
    Start-> Run-> "cmd".
    Then, enter the command:
    CACLS E:\/t/e/c/g everyone: F
    (where I am assuming that your external drive is mounted as "E:" - change of real player)

  • Cannot access the internet on a network Windows XP when Windows 7 goes to sleep

    Original title: Windows 7 Windows XP network problem.

    I replaced a Windows XP computer on my node 4 (2 PC, printer 2) cable network with a Windows 7 computer.  When the Windows 7 computer in mode 'sleep' the other (XP) computer cannot access the internet.  A message appears that there are 2 computers with the same IP address.  If I wake the computer 7 fine.  That is what it is?  I agree not all files between the computers.


    It is usually the case when, for example, a router is off, but one or more of the devices connected to the router are left on.

    The devices to retain the ip address assigned to them, but when the router starts up again it has no knowledge of this. If when you start one of the other devices, the router can assign an ip address already in use. Concrete example that I reproduced with my router and the PC...

    • Start the router, then boot PC1 and PC2 - the router ( will allocate for PC1 and to PC2
    • Turn off the router, then turn off PC2, restart and shut off again
    • Put the PC1 to sleep
    • Start the router and PC2, the router does not PC1 and allocate to PC2
    • PC1 to wake up and there still who now is a confrontation with PC2

    Other ways to reproduce this situation may also be possible.

    All devices on your network must have a unique ip address, where the warning message.

    If you get this situation once again, the solution is to turn off all devices, including the router, then restart the router, then restart all devices connected to the router.

    To avoid this, you may be able to put ip Reservations for your router address which will ensure that all devices connected to the router always get the same ip address (unique). If you are unsure how to proceed, we will need your router brand and model to help.

  • How to reduce the size of the file of a picture with Windows 7?

    Can I reduce the file size of a picture with Windows 7 to make it easier to send multiple photos in an email?  Also some websites limit the file size of a picture to post on the site.

    There are many ways to do it.  But if you want to do only with Windows 7, without having to download any programs to deal with, then your best bet is the built-in paint program.

    1. Right click on the image you want to reduce, and choose "open with > paint ' in the menu.
    2. In the painting, choose file > save as (or press F12 to shortcut).
    3. In the save box, choose the menu file type JPEG downwards and the name of your image.  JPEG is the most compressed (smaller) size of the images.

  • Cannot access the internet with bridged network - Windows 7 64 bit host, XPSP3 comments

    I use VMPlayer v3.0.1 build-227600 on a PC under Windows 7 64-bit. My guest operating system is Windows XP Professional w/SP3.

    I read all the messages on the use of NAT for the guest operating system can access the internet. But when I do that my guest is unable to access my Oracle server on my network. If I use Bridged my guest can access my Oracle server, but it cannot access the internet! How can I fix it? Shouldn't VMPlayer allow the guest OS to access the network and the internet? I need these two features.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    the simplest solution would be to add a second NIC to your comments, so that you can have bridged and NAT at the same time
