Opening Picture - Always Ask Before Open This File

Sep 15, 2014

Every time I open a picture it says "Always ask before open this file" ... over and over again, even when I uncheck it.

It never did this before till I had my computer reset to factory default at the repair shop. I am using Windows 8.1

It does it on about half the pictures that I have. I am working on a project and having to open lots and lots of pictures.

Maintenance :: File History Won't Open / Start?

Jan 10, 2013

Running Windows 8 Pro x64 as a Domain User with full Admin privileges, I am unable to use File History. I cannot open/start the File History tool. When I attempt to click on it from the Control Panel, nothing happens. When I try running it from the Metro search tool, it switches to the desktop and nothing loads. I've also tried in the Action Center, under Maintenance, "File History is Off. Turn On." Clicking "Turn On" does nothing.

All other items under the Control Panel that I have tried open and work with no problems.

I also tried in a "clean boot". System file checker reported no errors.

I just noticed in Control Panel there is "Windows 7 File Recovery". If I launch that and try to set up a Windows 7-style backup, it seems to work. I suppose I could just use this older tool instead of the new File History, although I haven't researched the differences.

I have another machine with the same version of Windows 8, and I am able to launch File History with no problems. I click File History from control panel and am taken to another screen that allows me to enable it. No such screen on the problem machine. The only main difference is the working machine is a regular user account; whereas, the non working machine is a domain account

Windows 8.1 File Explorer Fails To Open With Right Click

Mar 31, 2014

Windows Explorer as well as other desktop programs failed to respond to a right click from any interface. I was also having printer errors that involved total failure to print. At first, I thought I needed to uninstall all my Epson software and printer, but that resulted in no change. This was likely a Context Menu Handler problem. It suggested downloading a Shell File Extensions View (ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows) from NirSoft version which was free.

The first download I did not use out of fear so I accessed the Context Menu area via regedit, but saw no way to disable any suspected third party Context Menu Handlers. So, in the end, I swallowed hard and ran the NirSoft application. I was able to see all the shell items in the registry, and sorted them by age, the most recent was a Context Menu Handler from Norton Internet Security occurring during the most recent update.

The manager software allowed me to disable just that one handler, and after a restart, File Explorer and everything else behaved normally. So, now I am posting this so it only takes you less than an hour to address this issue, where I spent 4-5 hours on it. I reinstalled the Norton Internet Security and all is still well.

Program Disappears When Select To Open Existing File

Sep 30, 2013

I have a very frustrating issue with Windows 8 where my software disappears when I select to open an existing file from within the parent program. It is not minimized and it is not 'off' the screen. I open task manager, and it doesn't exist as a process in any state. The program is Xilinx's ISE for programming FPGA boards.

Before, I get the obvious response that it is an issue with the ISE gui and not Windows 8, I've had a similar problem in another program in Windows 8 in which when I tried to create a new folder in a select file dialog box to save a file, the program would disappear. (Though, I don't recall which program that was.) It's as the program closes completely! (I'm lovin' Linux even more now.)

Windows 8 - Can't Open Any Personal Stuff / File Damaged

Oct 11, 2013

Word documents open, but I can't delete, move, or open anything like pictures and media.

It says the file is damaged, windows can't read it, or it's corrupted.

I can't move any programs/stuff to a new folder, or the screen flashes dark blue then back again, with nothing changed

If I delete something, again, blue screen flash, nothing changes.
If I delete something while editing a picture (ex: selecting part of the picture then pressing "delete" key), nothing happens (Paint.NET - doubt this issue is from them).

My temp folder is extremely messed up as well. Link to my temp folder [URL] ....

Excel Cannot Open File - Format Or Extension Is Not Valid?

Jul 21, 2014

I am running Excel 2007 and have been working on files and ONLY saving them to my USB memory stick.

On connecting the device to my PC (using an extension USB cord) I noticed a very brief minute blue like spark, and didn'y release until I tried to access my files that the entire content was wiped.

Excel cannot open the file 'LostFile_XLSX_608879.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.

Well I think it looks fine to me, and I endeavoureed to use the Open & Repair when openng the file too, with no luck.

Apps / Software :: How To Open Access Database File

Mar 12, 2014

We got a new computer in the office and it is running Windows 8.1. We also have 2 older computers and they are running win XP. I have them all networked together and everybody can see and edit all files on any computer.So far so good.Here is the problem: MS Access will not open any database files. I get the attached popup. The file is not outside my intranet. It resides in a subfolder of "Documents". The folder is called "Data Base Files". As I said, the file can be seen by anu user, but can only be opened in the Windows 8.1 machine, where it resides. Q: how can I open the file on the XP machines? Of cause they all have Access installed. How do I get around the popup?

Maintenance :: System Restore Takes Slightly More Than 2 Minutes To Open

Feb 5, 2014

both Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit machines. When my intent is to go to a system restore point, from System Properties and then click on System Restore it takes slightly more than 2 minutes for the Restore dialog window to open. This is from the Desktop which I use almost exclusively.

This is an update from Windows 8, which behaved the same, and has had a repair install to see if that would work. It didn't. I have tried your Shadow copy entries mentioned earlier but with no improvement. I have resorted to a third party program "RestorePointCreator.exe" Which works quickly like Win 7 does.

My dual booted Win 7 Pro opens almost by the time my finger releases the mouse button

Oct 20, 2013

I'm on 64 bit and have 8.1 Pro installed. When I double click a file reader does not open. This wasn't the case before the upgrade. Tried multiple times but it just doesn't open. Went to Task Manager and noticed 8 instances of Acrobat Reader and shut them down all one by one. The files started opening again. After a while again I have to go back to the task manager and close reader which is cumbersome and irritating.
