RTF File 2KB wont open

  Mixson 15:54 16 Feb 2007

I have been having problems with my PC the last few days which have been solved using advice on this site. Now my RTF File's wont open. "This file does not have a program associated with performing this action" pops up.

right click and open with notepad, if it opens then ctrl A and ctrl C then go to Wordpad or your word processor and ctrl V

I have lots of these files and have tried your advice on several. The writing is garbled and it is giving complete details such as what type faces are used in the document. Any more ideas please.

Right click one of these files and select Open With. Browse to find the program that you want and tick the box 'Always use this program to open this type of file'.

I have tried this and most say this is not a bitmat file and wont open my RTF files. I can't understand why suddenly this problem has started.

Hello any one out there got a solution?

RTF files are rich-text format, not bitmaps...Wordpad or Microsoft Word will read it.
If the file has been changed or damaged, or the extension is wrong you could try another .rtf file to check. Sounds like something more serious up with your machine as you have posted about the same problem with other extensions...
