I recently had cause to download a driver that sat on my computer for 2 days while I tried to figure out how to open it. I have the past month or so been confronted with a type screen I have not seen before. I was trying to make it come back up again but I can't right now but its a green screen and it has commands at the type like EXTRACT and so forth.

I am desperate to find some way around this as it is continually happening a couple of times a week at the most inopportunte times. What is this program and where did it come from?

Thanks if you can help me figure it out.

I just downloaded something called JZipV1c but the screen looks kind of the same type setup so not sure its going to be better. how do you know which program to use for what?

I'm lost can you help me clear the cobwebs in my brain?????:mellow:

Windows 7 should be able to handle most compressed files on its own. What is the full name (including extension) of the file in question?

win32cabinet extractor, i have a screen capture of it but I guess i can't post it.

I don't know why but everything I try to run almost it asks me what I want to use to run it and if i know the program when I try to find it they don't all show up.

I don't understand why. I tried to set the programs as defaults in some cases but when I get in that part of the program it won't show me the file I want to use so I can't do it.

Closed to avoid further confusion. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic373637.html ~ OB
