Accessing files on Desktop from in network computers


J

JCS

I recently had my desktop tuned up and when I recieved it back they updaed
the Bios and now I cannot open microsoft (xcel, Word, Powerpoint) file with
the standard application. It opens as Read only and the content of the file
is blank. I can open the word document with clipboard, excel with the
internet option and Powerpoint with viewer. In additon, when I try to attach
docs to an email through the desltop short cut, it gives me the following
error "ccess to the following potenially unsafe attachements has been
blocked: xxxxxxxx.INK"

Any thoughts?

Do you have any of the MS Office applications installed? If you do you can
run the "Reinstall or Repair" option via Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs >
Change button for your version of the application, or you can do it via the MS
Office application installation disk.

Updating the BIOS will *NOT* cause proplems with MS Office.

Take it back to the place that screwed up you PC or have them refund your money.

I can't correlate your post with the Subject line: Is this something that
only happened over a network? But then you say it's your desktop and no
mention of the network.

Personally I'd take the machine back and tell them to restore it to its
original state with everythign working, but the network throws a monkey
wrench into their possibly being able to do that.

Or did you just hijack a thread? If so, start your own new thread for the
best responses.

Often you'll find excellent advice on a newsgroup.
Before you use that advice though, consider the
ramifications of it being wrong or even dangerous;
how important IS that to you?
ALWAYS verify and confirm ANY advice from a
newsgroup!

They can easily make it stick that the damage happened after it left their
shop - like the owner or the other repair place. Not good advice IMO unless
you want to throw away what you already paid.
