i hope someone can help me on this... very frustrating.
Problem Description: Recently my laptop stopped opening all files. pdf, exe
I use Firefox most of the time but also Google Chrome and sometimes IE.
Browsers will go thru the process of downloading the files but when I try to save or run it ... I get "Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Then when I clic OK .. I get a Launch application window open for PPCNVCOM.EXE to choose an application to open it. I don't know what to do with that?
I just dont know what to do. I think I have tried everything but obviously not. Also have tried forums online looking for a solution, but every option requires a file to be downloaded and I cannot open any files successfully.
Word documents open ok. But any exe files just will not open, so even if I download something I can't open it anyway. Now pdf files will open Adobe but with the same pop up window... "Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I have checked, actually I have reset all the system defaults but without improvement.
Please make some suggestion
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
