File Names & Lack of Recognition

  Vicmohi 10:40 08 Sep 2006

I often have a problem with my PC's error messages and also with deciding on settings for my my Zone Alarm Pro firewall. In former case a message comes up saying such and such a file can't be found, is corrupted or similar and for ZAP message says a file is trying to act as a server or trying to contact the internet. My problem is that, in most cases I have no idea to what this file name relates and hence don't know how to correct the problem or how to choose appropriate firewall setting. Is there any way to relate file names (file strings) to specific programmes ? For instance, is there any central registry somewhere on the web which I can go to which tells me what the file is ?

Just google the file name for starters
