Can't open files by John[_72_]
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...

Font size has changed by rslchamp01
The font size in certain programs has changed to a real small font. Still readable but just barely. As an example, using AIM instant messenger, I can type an answer and adjust the font size there but when I hit enter to send it the text size converts to a real small size. It also is doing it in other programs as well. Any answers? Post Originated from http://www.VistaForums.com Vista...

explorer.exe does not run on startup by manos
Hello and thanks for your time. Every time I boot my computer, the process freezes when it's time to run explorer.exe. For some unknown reason, it won't load on its own. I can overcome the problem by using the task manager (File - New task - "explorer"), but this has to be done every time I boot. I would appreciate some help to find a permanent solution. Thanks in advance.

Its been in there since I first installed Vista on my system and relates to an error installing some raid drivers. I've since got the drivers installed but whenever I try to delete the problem, or clear the problem history, I'm given an error simply saying "Unable to Delete 1 Item". Anyone know how I can...

chkdsk issue by [email protected]
Whenever I run chkdsk /r, it finds quite a few errors and corrects them. An example is a lot of orphaned files. Then, if I run it again right away, it does the same thing and finds the sa,e orphaned files. What causes this and how can I correct it? Thank you.
