'Windows Cannot Open Required File"

I have a problem with my Packard Bell ISTART 2380 Due to the fact that my Packard Bell ISTART 2380 contained many viruses, I finally decided to to do a complete recovery install. I am currently trying to recover my Packard Bell PC but I'm having considerable problems doing so. Firstly, I created a 'DVDrecovery disc' using Packard Bell's Smart Restore console and I also downloaded and created a 'Vista recovery iso file' from onto a DVD using an application called Imgburn. I burned this iso file at two different speeds as I have read that burning an iso file at certain speeds, particlulary high speeds, can affect the actual files contained in the iso file. possibly making them currupt and unreadable when doing an install from it.

Messages I have been receiving over the course of trying to solve this problem, include; 'BOOTMGR is missing' and 'Windows cannot open the required file E:Sourcesinstall.wim'. Error code 0x80070002. I don't quite understand why this is happening considering that this Packard Bell model, like many, now come with a special partition as part of the Hard drive (called a Boot partition? or 'X' drive) where I can only presume all the necessary files required for a successful restore or even a full install of Vista itself reside. I have gone through the standard Packard Bell recovery console to repair Windows Vista Home Premium and also to reinstall it completely but it doesn't resolve things at all............

Windows Movie Maker: Codec Required To Play The File Is Not Installed
I was trying to import some videos I downloaded online and it says,"The file C:UsersRosalieDownloads[DB]_Naruto_Shippuuden_010_[EC7747DE].zip cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again." But, I already installed the DivX codec that the website I downloaded the clip from recommended and I tried restarting WMM.

I know that I did this before on my old computer. I downloaded videos from the same website, and I had to download the DivX codec. Once I downloaded the codec, the files worked, and i was able to download them. Does anyone know why it won't work for me now? Could it have anything to do with the files having been downloaded as zipped folders?

Virus AntiMalware 2010 Required File
I recently aquired the "Vista AntiMalware 2010" rogue antimalware. I was trying to get rid of it, then I found this site Vista AntiMalware 2010 - how to remove And deleted the only registries I found. I restarted my computer, and when I started it, this came up on a black screen: NTLDB not found (or removed or something)Press any key to restart

I'm pretty sure it was NTLDB but not 100%. I was pretty worried, and so when I restarted it again, I hit F12, then exited that. The computer started fine, it got to my desktop OK. BUT I can't open any programs except for Firefox. This error message comes up when I open iTunes, or any other program:This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel.I do no know what to do. Any help would be appreciated. I don't know much about technology, but I can follow directions, and I'm not entirely stupid.Also, before this happened, I couldn't install anything. And when I tried to, it said:Internal error: can not expand shell folder "userappdata" Again,

EDIT: I also can't get to the command prompt, registry editor, or malicious removal tool. Nothing is working.And this is only on my user. My sister's and my dad's work just fine.

Unable To Open Attachments In Windows Mail: Windows Cannot Find File Name
There are discussions on this general subject but no aparent resolution. About two months ago I was sometimes prevented from opening photo attachments on some emails received from the same party and sometimes could open them. By this I mean, I would click on the paperclip where a list of photos would appear and I'd click on on photo and I'd get a message saying: "Windows cannot find file name (photo captions used by sender).jpg. Make sure your typed the name correctly and then try again." Well, of course I didn't type the file name; the sender did. I could click on the save attachments, and once saved to a folder I could open them from the folder. I forwarded the mail to others, and they report no problems in viewing the photos. I can also view the photos in the email itself, but it would be necessary to scan up and down and from left to right to view the whold photo and the caption would not appear.

Pdf Attachments File Will Not Open In Windows Mail
Sometime last year, I began having trouble opening .pdf attachments in windows mail. I get the following message whenever I attempt to open the ..pdf file in windows mail:?This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel?.

I have been ?saving? the attachment to ?desktop? in order to open it, etc. I?ve already checked & have reset the Set Associations control panel?s .pdf to adobe. I have no problem opening ?Word? or any other document, just ..pdf-- & I ONLY have trouble with this in windows mail. The other two Users on my HP desktop are not having my user problem & I am growing weary of constantly having to save/open each document OUTSIDE of windows mail every time I receive .pdf attachments.

How I Can Get A .wps File (MS Works) To Open Directly In Windows Mail?
how I can get a .wps file (MS Works) to open directly in Windows Mail? I have the file association configured and everything works perfectly if I first save the attachment to a folder then double-click it, but it is annoying to have to do this.

A friend had the same problem with .pps files (Power Point) which would not open directly in Windows Mail even though she had the Power Point Viewer installed and a proper file association. There was a a registry edit on the Microsoft site that fixed that nicely and I am hoping that someone knows of something similar for .wps files.

How To Disable Open File - Security Warning Dialog Box In Windows?
Every time I want to open a .url file using the customized Links menu on the deskbar (channel bar), I get a dialog box with a security warning message "Do you want to open this file?" How do I disable this security warning dialog box from popping up? I am confident my Avast! virus definitions will detect and intercept any virus or spyware attached to any url before the file is opened, so I really don't need this feature, it is annoying.

Windows Mail Required Password
I tried to respond to an extremely old thread, and couldn't because of that. So I am reposting here as others may have the same concern.dannygallo;756753 Wrote: I agree with Danny. One shouldn't have to create a separate user account for Windows just to keep prying eyes from checking out email. That would be analogous to giving each person who lives in the same household a separate room with a lock and key with his/her own phone in it. It's generally accepted courtesy not to eavesdrop on others' conversations.

However, when spouses wish to share their user account and profile, but simply wish to keep their email exchanges a bit more confidential (yes, even from each other), this is no longer possible. It seems very unloving to mandate that two people in a relationship must completely isolate their home computer work spaces with usernames and private passwords, simply because they want to keep their email a bit private. So once again, I agree with Danny. Microsoft has a longstanding history of adding useless bells and whistles to programs, so I commend them for making Windows Mail more simple to use, but in this case, it would have been wonderful had they given the user an option to password protect program usage and entry WITHIN the same user profile

File Open & File Save Dialog Box Hangs
Whenever I request a "File|Open" or "File|Save" from any application, the mini-Windows-Explorer dialog box that opens freezes and hangs the entire application. Happens with almost all applications. Not limited to just Microsoft programs. It does not matter if I like change the download folder or if I rt click always the same.

Back when it was under warranty Hp tells me to just restore to original settings. I hate to do that. But I am about to see that this might be the only fix for it. (But I am hoping not.) I think it started a long time ago when I was changing the USB ports I used for my external Hard drive and it changed drive letter. (maybe maybe not.. just seems I remember that being something that had happened when I first recall things hanging...) anyway I have all drives in the place I want them now and this issue still happens even if I dont have that external drive plugged in.

Open 'My Computer' "Windows Cannot Access The Specified Device, Path, Or File"
I have three computers networked together via a Linksys Wireless Router. One Dell running XP Pro, and two HP laptops (wireless) one running Vista Ultimate x64 and the other running Vista Home Premium x32. I have all issues resolved (that I've discovered so far anyway) except one. There is a shared external hard drive conneced via USB to the XP, which I have mapped to both Vistas. I can see it when I open 'My Computer' but when I click on it I get an error that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to view the item." The odd thing about it is that I can access the contents of the drive by right-clicking on it and choosing either 'explore' or 'open.' I can access drives mapped from the Vista(s) to the XP on the XP just fine, just not the other way around.

"this File Could Not Be Found" - Windows Mail Cant Open Attached
Since I installed IE8, I have had a lot of small glitches. I have been able to clean them all up. But this one has been completely resistant to all my attempts to solve it. Here is the problem. Please READ this and do not jump to conclusions (such as that the problem is a program association problem -- which it is NOT) that are not based on this scenario, nor recommend to me doing something that I have already tried.

- I receive a Word document attached to an e-mail.
- I double click on the document in the ATTACH box of the received e-mail.
- Windows Mail opens a MAIL ATTACHMENT window asking if I want to open the document.
- Word 2007 opens.
- Word 2007 opens a MICROSOFT OFFICE WORD window that says "This file could not be found. (C:...Filename ...)" where Filename is the name of the .DOC file.

The same thing happens with PDF files: Adobe Acrobat Reader opens but then opens an ADOBE READER window that says "There was an error opening this document. This file cannot be found.".........

"Windows Cannot Open The File"
When I click a Word 2007 document in Windows Explorer, I get the message "Windows cannot open the file (path ame) make sure...etc." Word opens but file does not. With Word open, clicking brings up another instance of Word (without file) and same error. Same as other posts on this issue. Issue does not occur with any other files (Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Acrobat, etc.) Happens with only Word extensions (docx, etc.) If I open Word and open the file from inside Word, all is fine.

I tried saving documents in different Word extensions, saving to different locations, but still get the error--only when opening directly from Explorer or Desktop. I have repaired Office 2007 (Ultimate Version), uninstalled Word, reinstalled Word; tried the registry fix posted here and MS site (removing Data reg entry under Word). Used tool posted here to unassociate/reassociate .docs with Word. I reimaged my hard drive using an image from two weeks ago, but apparently it started before that, because I still get the same error. I reset my index and waited for it to regenerate. I'm sure there might be other solutions I've tried, but these are the ones that come to mind. It is a three-week-old Dell 1545 laptop, 64-bit Vista. Not impossible to live with, but has me stumped. According to all the posts in networld and here, fairly common problem that seems to have no single solution.

Can't Open Pdf File
Whenever I open a .pdf file, whether in Acrobat or within a web browser, my computer suddenly goes into low-color (8-bit) mode, and I have to go to personalization/display settings to correct it. I have the most recent version of Acrobat, and have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but this still happens every time I open a .pdf! Is there anything I can do to stop this, and prevent it from happening in the future?

Cannot Open Log Install. Log File
I've seen similar post on this and tried to follow the replies for the fix but didn't work for me so I thought I'd post my scenerio. I downloaded some software from a company named X10. It's for monitoring security cameras from a remote location. The software is name Vangaurd. I'm trying to uninstall it but I keep getting "cannot open log install. log file". I notice there is not a folder for this in my program files, therefore I do not see an "unistall". Does anybody know how I can uninstall this? I am using Windows Vista.

MMC Can't Open The File C:WindowsSystem32eventvwr.msc
This pops up when i try to open Control Panel>>Administrative tools>>event viewer:
"MMC can't open the file C:WindowsSystem32eventvwr.msc. This may be because the file does not exist, it is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file." I have tried everything that I know about to solve this problem. I have googled the problem, and came up to the solution of running "regsvr32 msxml3.dll". When i run regsvr32 msxml3.dll(on some forums i have read it should be the solution) I get another new error code:...........

ITunes Cannot Open This File
A friend left a garbled message on my telephone answering machine asking me for help but I don't use Vista or iTunes, so I'm hoping some kind soul on here can help. Basically any file he downloads (it may be a photo of his grandson sent as an email attachment in jpg format, or a program such as skype.exe, or a pdf document) cannot be opened. When double-clicked, any downloaded file opens up iTunes and presents the message "iTunes cannot open this file". I know it's not much to go on but his message recorded badly.

Open .exe File IE Ittunes
So apparently I had a massive amount of viruses on my computer, of which I recently purchased Vista anti-virus to remove them all. This worked great for a bit but now whenever I try opening any program/file it asks me which program I want to use to open it. This includes .exe files, along with things like IE, iTunes. Windows Media Player, and many others. I have downloaded a patch that is supposed to fix this, but when I go to open the file (which is a .exe one) it once again asks me which program I want to open it with.
