Many of us have face the problem that we are not able to open Microsoft office files with extensions “.docx” – Word Document , “.xlsx” – MS excel file and “.pptx” – Powerpoint presentations in Microsoft office 2003 or office 2000.
This is because the documents saved in the office 2007 are not backward compatible directly. But there is a very useful and easy add-on available from Microsoft itself.
Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack
This compatibility pack will let you open the newer MS office documents with extensions .docx , .xlsx and .pptx with the older versions of MS Office 2003 and Office 2000. You will also be able to open, edit, and save files using the file formats new to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007. You simply need to download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and install it on your computer which has the older version of MS office.
Sometimes virus disable our built-in Windows registry editing tool, which is regedit than whenever we try to open the regedit program through “run”, we get the following message:
“Registry Editing Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator”
There two ways to enable it Back:-
Use the gpedit.msc to enable the registry editor.
Go to run then type gpedit.msc
then Click on Administrative Templates
Click the System and locate the Prevent access to registry editing tools and double click on it
Click disabled in the option button then click apply and then ok .
The disabled button will make the policy into default, the computer will automatically configured it and you would be able to access the regisrty.
If you are not able to use gpedit.msc
Select all the codes below. Copy and paste them in the Run window. Press enter, and there you are!!!
REG add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
This code will enable your regedit..
Most of us have this problem, Sometimes when virus attack our computer it disable the “Show hidden files and folders” option than even if we select the option Show hidden files and folders from the folder option window, the changes just disappear upon closing the dialog. It is because virus has attacked your registry file. So here is the solution to the problem:-
Go to Run than type regedit and click Ok.
Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion
Look at the “CheckedValue” key. This should be a DWORD key. Check its value If the value is not 1 then make it 1.
If “CheckedValue” key is not there then Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
Now open My Computer, on the toolbar go to Tools > Folder Option and click on the View tab.
The “Show hidden files & folders” will work properly!!!
Suppose u want to hide a folder named games which is in D: of ur computer
go to command prompt
after changing it from C: to D:
Type D:/>attrib +h +s games
This Command will hide your folder
To show the folder
Type D:/>attrib -h -s games
Using this Trick you can hide your folder which cannot be viewed even if you make advance search or even if change the folder option to show all hidden files.
Go to regedit.
then navigate to:-
Now in the right pane create a new DWORD item and name it NoDrives(it is case sensitive). Now modify it’s value and set it to 3FFFFFF (Hexadecimal) .Now restart your computer. So, now when you click on My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone…). To enable display of drives in My Computer, simply delete this DWORD item that you created.Again restart your computer.You can now see all the drives again.
