  • 1. Strange File Extension. Can anyone identify?
    I was sent something in an attachment with a file extension of .sig and was told that it "Has some Fotoshop in it" (his spelling, not mine). Not surprisingly, Photoshop won't open it even when I changed the extension to .psd. Does anyone know what program created this file and what it might be? Thanks in advance for any help.

    The taskbar and icons are missing. The only function I can execute is the taskmanager.
  • 3. Suddenly windows update will not let me log on! Solved
    Thank God for Restore. I am back in working order and update recognizes me again. By a process of elimination I found out it was my installing Gimp for Windows that seems to have been the culprit.

  • 4. Go!Zilla leaves me in a mess. Help needed
    Today I downloaded Gozilla (the 30 day trial version). This is a program I remember from a previous PC and then it gave me no problems. This version now has Smart Explorer integrated with it - I don't think it had before - and it looks as though Gozilla alone cannot be had. I immediately had problems and basically Smart Explorer tried to take over. The clash with Int. Explorer and O.Express meant I could not send out e-mails as the server was not recognised.I could get online though. I uninstalled both Gozilla and Sm Exp and cleaned out the remaining bits as well as I could. I now have e-mail working well with one exception. My access to this group through news.virgin.net will not function as it did previously.I can get as far as the downloading of the newsgroups then it stops."Unable to connect to the server." There is another big problem. Clicking on my desktop shortcuts brings up a link with my printer. This is with most of the s/cuts - the ones I created to folders and not the program files. A right click on the ones that are wrong shows me Smart Explorer as the second line down.A left click on this S.E. line tells me Windows cannot find smartexplorer.exe (I assume I have uninstalled it), and asks me to enter the executable file that should open the shortcut. I hope my long-winded explanation is clear but the whole thing has me in a mess. Anything that will help will be appreciated. Many thanks, Marty

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time
reboot, it will do the function.

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

someone can help me please?

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
