When downloading a program it pops up that I can not open it because I do not have anything to open a bin file. Tells me to download a program and I'll be good to go. When I do a program scans my computer tells me I have an enormous amount of errors and they want me to pay to fix them. I'm not real computer savy but I know enough to get me in trouble. I just want my computer to read and open a bin file. ANYONE with patience care to help? (or without)

Hello, and Welcome

 

You can mount a .bin file in a virtual drive with OSFmount and then explore the contents.

Thanks for the reply, what do you mean by "mount a .bin file"?

Mounting is taking the bin file and opening it using a virtual drive. When using OSFmount it give you the option to select a unused drive letter. Then you would go to My Computer or Computer and double click the virtual drive OSF mount created. You would then be able to explore the contents of the bin file like opening any other drive on the computer.
