So here I find myself again at this amazing site...!

An attempt was made to move the file pointer before the beginning of the file

I had a program open (wrapcandy 7.1) and was doing many other processes which ofcourse irritated and slowed my computer down and eventually froze. Couldn't restart so I did a hard shut down. Apparantly that restarting process did something funky to the one file I was working with since now when I try to open it...I get the above error. Can you help? :whistling:

do you have the program cd?
If yes uninstall - rune tuneup trial (in my sig) run registry cleaner & registry defrag - reload the program
