Greetings.  One of the results of a previous posting here was for me to re-install Windows 7 on my computer. Before I did that, I saved selected data to a USB stick. Thinking that it would be a simple matter to just put it back after the re-installation, I inserted the stick into a USB receptacle and   I can open the device to see all of the things listed, but if I click on any of them to read, I get pop-ups telling me  I can't. I have tried all of the available avenues to open, including; Adobe Reader, Pad, Notebook, IE, all of them to no avail. I even tried to send data to documents and it goes there, but when I open it, it's the same. I get Jibberish. Thank You

Strangely enough, I figured this on out for myself., The file that I was trying to access was born via Excel and as soon as I completed the download of my Office 2003 I was able to access the file.Thank You for you help.  SOLVED
