Hi as it say I cannot open any of my odt or sxw Documents that I saved with OpenOffice writer that I had to uninstall because it was leaving about 40 odt files running in Prossess in the Background

eg:Task Manager > Prossess. So I installed MS office 2010 and all the files I have are 90% odt and sxw and MS Word 2010 will not open them? looks like a coding issue? see Attachment? I can open these file's in Word Pad no problems. Im also having trouble setting up a "Default Style" which I use all the time I never use anything else it's only a Home Computer the Default Style Format I want to set is: > Veranda >11 > reguler > Line size 1.5 It's been many years since I had to set this all up and I have completly Forgotten I would appreciate any help please :unsure: Dazza PS what do I do to convert Snagit ScrShots Make them Smaller so I can Attach them here

How did you uninstall OO ?

 

When you double click on one of your files.....does OO still try to open it ?....(this is despite the fact that you uninstalled it..!?)

Can you right click on a file....select "open with".....does OO still appear in the menu there as an option to open the file with?

I think OO is muddying the waters in some way......I had a similar experience with an older version of OO

 

I would reinstall OO.......then uninstall it using Revu Uninstaller Free...

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/search/?keyword=revo+uninstaller

 

Double click Revo Uninstaller to run it.
From the list of programs double click on The Program to remove
When prompted if you want to uninstall click Yes.
Be sure the Moderate option is selected then click Next.
The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
when the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next.
Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
Check/tick the bolded items only on the list then click Delete
when prompted click on Yes and then on next.
put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
when prompted select yes then on next
Once done click Finish.

 

This will ensure all the "bits and pieces" are removed as well.

Reboot when finished.

 

Any change??

Condobloke I have done all of that, Revo and CCleaner and then went into Task Manager, Processes and Stopped the 40 odd ODT's that were running in there! There is no OpenOffice left on the computer that I can see if I could just show you the Screen Shot of what is comming Up you would know immediatly whats wrong Dazza
