some of my files are not opening.

Acer / Aspire l3600
January 16, 2011 at 12:35:25
Specs: Windows Vista, 1.6 GHz / 1013 MB
The Acer (c:) drive on my pc turned red because it was running out of space, so my son uninstalled some of his programs & since then there is some things not opening when i go into them, like files ending in .cct, .rpt .ger .pub .inx .hdr .bin & some other things. I don't know if i have some sort of virus or my son uninstalled some programs by mistake. Is there anyway you can help me or tell me who can help me.

Well, the .cct has something to do with adobe flash(i think)

.pub is for Microsoft Office Publisher, I'm pretty sure. .

RPT file is a kind of Generic Report which generated from various text-based projects like system utilities or organizer programs. Any text editor can open RPT files either on Windows or on Mac OS.

And .ger is a german text/html type file.

The HDR file extension is a typical image file that can be created with some software programs like Photomatix and Adobe Photoshop; here HDR stands for high dynamic range.

.inx has something to do with adobe indesign

The BIN file type is primarily associated with 'Binary File'. Binary files are used for a wide variety of content and can be associated with a great many different programs. In general, a .BIN file will look like garbage when viewed in a file editor and unless there is some clue in the ASCII portion of the file (if any) there is little one can do to determine which program a particular .BIN file goes with.

Also I had windows vista basic on 1gb ram and 80gb hard drive a while back, and it filled up in no-time. Try downloading Ccleaner, and run a scan, or better yet, install
windows xp.

Hope this helped.
