Question related to opening an infected file

Hi, my friend sent me a few photos in a .zip file and when I downloaded the file and tried to open it, my anti virus showed me several treats and that the file has been infected by a virus. I did a scan on the file and that he obtained the files, I can open the file now or if she is still infected? I'm afraid that if I open it, my computer will be infected.

Anti-virus did exactly what it should. It has detected, isolated and fixed / remove problem files, this is the main purpose of an AV application

If you feel that you do not trust the program enough to really do its job so is there much point in having? Of course your 'friend' must unravel his system, but if these pictures are important, then you will need to take a position on safe are now the VA has cleaned up the.

You can try a new analysis with another AV, Microsoft Safety Scanner if you use MSE or Sophos if you are

  • How to open a configuration file with a relative path?

    I want to open a configuration file when my application is initialized (first 'State', you can tell) and I use 'Open file.vi Config' and tried to pass the path of the config as 'data\myconfig.ini' and the 'File exists?' vi gave no error (simply, the exit is 'false') but the config Open leader gave an error.

    If I spend an absolute path "D:\xyz\xyz\myconfig.ini", it works fine. Is not is it possible to use the "relative path" I recall using it before searching for other tasks?

    I'd rather have this file in the folder "data" my application setup will create the destination directory during the installation of the application, because it won't be easy when I want to ask the user to open and modify. Or, I just put it in "C:\". "that exists on all windows computers, but it would be too open.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Question of relative/absolute link in F4V file to post on the Web

    Hello, I am new to Flash, but am familiar with HTML, Photoshop and Illustrator.  I work in Flash CS4.  I have successfully run a .wmv file through the Media Encoder, converted into a file f4v, imported into Flash and published with a skin in a folder on my hard drive.

    I'm learning it on my own (no one else in my State Agency knows Flash - we just start posting videos on the Internet, and it is the test case).

    I get the following four files in a folder on my hard drive (I put in brackets what I think the files do, please correct if I am wrong):

    Oil.F4V (movie file)

    Test.html (the html page in which the swf file is embedded to play the movie)

    Test.swf (the SWF that is embedded in the html page)

    SkinUnderPlayStopSeekMuteVol.swf (linked from the Test.swf file skin file?)

    My question is: as a long time that these four files reside in the original case, the html page displays the film perfectly.  As soon as I rename the folder, nothing works.  It seems to be a question of restoring a relative/absolute link among the files?

    I want to put these on my site online to test, but courses that do not work, but either.

    I apologize in advance if an answer is already posted on the forum, I searched but did not find one that addressed this particular issue.

    Thank you all in advance for any help you can offer!

    If everything is in the same folder, just delete the path in the properties panel and use only oil.f4v

  • questions to open the .swf files

    At the opening of the .swf files I open or save as options. I tried all the fixes I could find nothing help. I even tried reinstalling the flash player program. I can read the files from the site, but after downloading, I can no longer read the files from my desktop without having to open it or save as options as it tries to re - download the same file. This repeats non-stop. I checked the options in tools but I can't seem to change or reset things to the .swf files. One of the options for the target of shockwave flash file, which I installed it, but the other says always ask. I can't change to firefox, if I set it to IE he repeats the open or save as options as it does in firefox. I can't locate any program to open the file in firefox.

    Before the last update that I use to just be able to click on a .swf file and it will open in firefox without problem. I don't know what has changed in the last update, but now I can't open the .swf files unless I do it from the site, I downloaded the file from.

    Try to rename (or delete) the file mimeTypes.rdf in the profile folder of Firefox to reset all the actions file.

  • iCal open the alert file does not

    I have installed 10.11.3. iCal Prefs are set correctly according to the suggestions of Apple.

    However, if I set an alert to open the file in the section 'Custiom', the alert does not open the file or reacts in any way in time. What's most frustrating is when I open the same file again to check if I did something wrong, the field 'alert' is 'None' showing!

    What I want to buy Fantastical2 app (tested, it turns very well), although iCal played perfectly for years on different platforms of OS X, I used?

    Hello there, Bob.

    It seems that you encounter no success with the calendar to inform you with alerts personalized on your MacBook Pro. One thing to try is to test the behavior in a new user. This testing process is described in the following Knowledge Base article:

    How to test a question in another account on your Mac.

    Before you try a different user account

    If you see unexpected behavior on your Mac to first try the following steps:

    Try to search the base knowledge of Apple for the specific symptom or an alert message you see. There could be more simple measures that you can take to solve the problem.

    Try to boot your Mac in Mode safe. Restart your computer. Hold the SHIFT key when you hear the startup sound. Release the SHIFT key when you see the Apple logo appears. Your Mac starts up in Safe Mode. Safe mode performs a check of your startup disk directory and removes data from the cache. Once your finished Mac commissioning, restart the Mac normally (without hold the SHIFT key) and see if the problem is resolved.

    Make sure your software is up-to-date. The question that you see can be addressed by installing the available updates.

    Check to see where the problem occurs. If a problem arises until you see your desktop, it is less likely that it is related to a setting or a user account. If a problem occurs with a Web site, see if the pages of other websites correctly first load. There could be a problem with the site and not your Mac.

    How to test with another user account

    You can find out if unexpected behavior is related to the user file or a parameter in trying to reproduce the problem to a different user account. This process includes creating a new user account, connect to it and test for the issue.

    Create a test user account

    1. In the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
    2. Click the users and groups in the System Preferences window.
    3. Click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password.
    4. Click on the button Add (+) below the list of users.
    5. Choose a type of user in the new pop-up menu.
    6. Give the user a name and first name, account name, and password.
    7. Click OK.
    8. Close the System Preferences window.

    If there are documents from your user account that you want to test with original, place a copy of these items in the shared folder in the users folder. Press the Option key while dragging a file in this folder to create a copy.

    Connect to the test user account

    Log out of your current user account by choosing logout in the Apple menu, and then open a session the new account that you created. If you are prompted to login with your iCloud or Apple ID account when you log in, skip this step.

    Try to reproduce the problem

    Try the same steps that caused the unexpected behavior to appear. For example, if you are unable to print, try printing from this user account. If you were unable to connect to the Internet, try to navigate on a website of this user account.

    If you use specific test settings depends on (for example using a specific e-mail account or an account iCloud) implemented the same test user account. For email and other parameters, you can use the Internet accounts pane in system preferences to set up these types of accounts. If your home folder files are necessary for tests, copy them into the shared folder in the users folder (/ Users/Shared). After you connect as a user test, copy these items to the same location in the test user home folder to test with.

    If a problem occurs in account only one user

    Is using the same steps in a user account test does not cause the same unexpected behavior, most likely you don't need to reinstall applications or OS X.

    • If a problem occurs only in a single application, check the documentation or Web site for instructions on troubleshooting specific preferences or the definition of the application files.
    • If you need help with a problem or a specific alert message, search the Apple support Web site for the text of the alert message you see.

    If a problem occurs in more than one user account

    If the same unexpected behavior occurs in more than one user account on your Mac, try checking for software or hardware problems.

    Thank you for reaching out to the communities of Apple Support.

    Kind regards.

  • Whenever I try to open a pdf file in firefox, he asks me to activate adobe acrobat. How can I stop this from happening?

    I have activate acrobat, but it happens always next time I need to open a pdf file. The same problem occurs when I use a quicktime file. I can down down I would allow me every time but one time, next time, I want to use, see, or hear a quicktime file I get the same question. It's very annoying. I went into options and chose the file to use to open rather than have me ask but it does not solve the problem either.

    Hello moxiet, please go to the firefox menu > addons > plugins where you can set general preferences for individual plugins (always ask or always activate).

  • Why can't I open my backup files to my PC?

    Hello! I recently did a backup of my phone using iTunes, but every time I have to browse these files, they are all a weird format that my computer does not recognize, so my question is how do I backup my files while being able to open on my PC

    There is no official way to unlock iPhone save the file. The only way that you can 'use' it is to restore it to your phone via iTunes.

    There are a few 3rd party applications claiming to be able to open iTunes backups but I do not recommend to use them, like playing with herself, save might be unusable when you need it. But if you really do just google 'open iPhone backup file', and I'm sure you'll find something.

    But even once, do not.

  • Open your video files (MP4) with an external application in Ubuntu

    I have exactly the same problem as described here

    and here

      https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959839
    

    Exactly what the title of the question says. The problem is that I'm using Ubuntu/Linux and solutions identified in the above links do not seem to apply (there is no media - media.windows - foundation.enabled in topic: config since, as its name suggests, it is an option of Windows). I noticed here

      http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20061175/mp4-not-supported-in-firefox
    

    This Jack native support for Firefox for MP4 has been disabled until the 26 under Linux/Ubuntu version. Since the version when available here

      https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/
    

    It looks like I've been screwed up by an update in a couple of days - which corresponds to my experience, that until a few days ago, everything was perfectly fine (I use VLC to open the .m4v files).

    Anyone know some magic button to return? Can I reinstall Firefox 25, if I did? I played randomly with some options in: config (with names suggesting possibly some appropriate behaviors), but nothing good happened...

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Under Linux, you can watch the media.gstreamer.enabled preference.
    You must have the appropriate GStreamer plugins installed.

    A few questions about your HTML file.

    First of all, using unusual fonts? "Outline" or "vector" fonts usually give more reliable results in browsers. It is Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier New.

    Second, you get different results if you use file > save as (in Notepad) and change the ANSI or UTF-8 encoding? I think that those who are the most commonly used for web pages. The drop-down list coding is just to the left of the button Save.

    In the upper right corner of the Console window, there is a search box to filter. Enter the name of the application crashed or process. For example, if Safari has crashed, you would enter "Safari" (without the quotes).

    Each message in the journal begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the messages since the time of the last fall, as appropriate. Copy to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command + V.

    The journal contains a large amount of information, almost everything that is not relevant to solve a particular problem. When you post a journal excerpt, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.

    Please do not post other types of diagnostic report - they are very long and rarely useful.

    When you post the journal excerpt or the accident report, you might see an error message on the web page: "you have included content in your post that is not allowed", or "the message contains invalid characters." It's a bug in the forum software. Thanks for posting the text on Pastebin, then post here a link to the page you created.
