This has to be one of the biggest non-helpful responses I have ever seen on a forum.

Owns more than one compute, work computer, friend's computer, computer at libray, internet cafe.

Yours is even less helpful.

@rmcgillvary:
What kinds of files won't open? (e.g. Word files, Excel files, text files, zip files, HTML files...) Or all files won't open?
Are programs running when you open them?
