It is some time back that I was furtunate enough to find this site. At that time my pc was telling me it was "unable to open files for windows 6" Here I was given a solution to the prob. giving access to the locked files. But access to these files did not give me option to edit. So I printed off.

I came back for a solution, (having access, but not able to edit files). This was also given to me. I was grateful.

Guess what? Yes, (and as the Physician said) you have it again.

Using the System Restore facility on my pc, which I have found helpful. (Speeding things up in the main).

Unfortunately using System Restore recently, I happened (unknowingly)to select a date when the documents on this p.c. had the aforementioned, pair of specs, and a large W at the top left had corner. Yes, can read but not edit. All my docs. are now included. Even recent docs. "Systen Restore" cannot "unrestore" the created prob. Restore from another date etc. I have been trying. I have tried to trace the post dealing with this.


OK Ok I hear you! Pay Attention! Take Notes!!! Sorry.

If anyone can understand this!!! And give me some help.

Thank you
