Can't open any of my programs since installing Firefox

Since I just installed Foxfire to get rid of Avast I can't open any of my Office 10 programs. There have been others too...some of Windows, etc. I can go into documents and open Word, Excel but don't have anything in there to open Outlook which is critical for me to be able to get in it.

Hi Tully, Welcome to the Discussions.
Which model do you have?
How much RAM do you have installed?
Does your computer see it all?
How full is your hard drive?
Have you ever repaired permissions?
Any recent changes you can you think of?

  • Help!  Can't open files in all programs since installing version cue upgrade

    Please help. A few days ago I got some pop up (I'm in windows XP) saying updates were available for 2 adobe things. I just chose yes and kept working. Now, I can't open files in any of my CS3 programs. I have lost 4 days of productivity and fear losing my mind next!! after doing some research, it appears alot of people are having trouble since uploading some version cue upgrade for cs3. I followed their suggestions and unchecked VC in photoshop (my first offender) and suddenly I could open files again. But now I can't in Illustrator, but in preferences, it does not have VC checked.
    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the whole package. I've tried just uninstalling VC. Nothing's working and I'm having major deadline problems now.
    Please, please help! Thanks.

    You can try a system restore to a point before the update. If you're lucky, it might work, but I often find System Restore will fail when you need it the most.

  • I ordered the full creative cloud on sunday and received an order number but still can't open any of the programs. When i check the status of my order online, it says it can't find it. Is this normal after 3 days?

    I ordered the full creative cloud on sunday and received an order number but still can't open any of the programs. When i check the status of my order online, it says it can't find it. Is this normal after 3 days? I tried asking in a chat window instead of the forum but no one answered and after about ten minutes my screen restarted and closed the chat window down. It seems a little frustrating not knowing what happened to my order and not being able to contact anyone. Is all this usual with Adobe or are they just having technical problems this week?

  • I can't open any of my programs

    When I turn my laptop on, it takes a long time to boot and when it does, even though I can move my cursor around, I can't open any of the programs. I couldn't even turn it off properly. I had to just shut it down by holding the power button. Any suggestions? I'm really frustrated.
    BTW, it started happening when I was using my Verizon Wireless USB device. The program went haywire and wouldn't shut down.

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!
    Will the machine boot after removing Verizon's USB device?
    Will the machine boot after not just removing the device, but also zapping the PRAM as described below:

  • Security Update 2007-004: can't open any MS Office programs & files.

    I installed update this morning. Since then, I can't open any MS Office files and even programs. When I clicks the prograqms, it is jumping with icon but the program is not started (still Finder window).
    Do you have any similar experience and know how to fix this?
    Is this MS Office problem or OX security Update problem, or two jsut crashed?
    I realy want to fix this because I usuaally work with Word/Exel/Power Point fimes. I appreciate your effort to read and thanks in advance.

    Have just found this discussion group and now feel less incompetent. Have been unable to open any Office 2004 for Mac programmes for just over a week, and now cannot open the only other non Mac programme I have installed, which was working fine before (the Inland Revenue payroll software programme). Cannot get at half my archived e-mails which were in Entourage, although I also use .mac for my work e-mails which is fine. Have downloaded a demo spreadsheet programme to tide me over, and moved to using ilife which is good. But all the same - what is happening, and how can this be fixed? And if its happening to lots of us, surely either apple or Microsoft should give us a fix??
    by the way, I am a new mac user, since May, and an enthusiastic convert until now!
    any ideas??

  • An automatic software update on iWork went in on Friday. Now I can't open any of the programs; they all crash. My local Apple Store Genius said send the program to the trash bin, empty it and do a reinstall. This has not worked either.

    On Friday my iMac downloaded and installed an automatic update for iWorks, since which none of the 3 programs in the suite have worked. Numbers crashes immediately. Pages puts up the opening screen but won't open any files old or new. I don't use Keynote so I can't say whether that was affected or not.
    I asked advice at my local Apple Shop and was told to trash iWorks, empty the trash, then do a re-install from my original disk. After the 2nd attempt, this gave me a message that it had been successfully installed. Now all 3 programs crash on opening. I have only had the iMac since November 2010 and am still a novice user, although I have nearly 20 years' experience of Windows OS from 3.1 to Win7.

    Thanks, Eric. I'm not sure what I should be checking using your suggestion--as I said, I'm an utter novice with the iMac. However,  I saw a reference to problems with the Library entries, so I checked mine and the iWork files were missing, something confirmed when I checked the crash log. In desperation, I did another software update, and that seems to have fixed the problem completely. Now wondering if I dare upgrade to Lion!

  • Can't open Office Mac 2008 programs after install

  • Can't open any of my programs.

    My computer will turn on with out any sign of a problem, but as soon as I try to open Safari for example, an error message pops up saying 'The application Safari quit unexpectedly." This happens with any application I try to open. However, the finder, System preferences, and my desktop icon will open. I hope someone can help me. Thanks

  • Can not open any adobe products even pre installed ones on new samsung 15in  Ativ9 i5 2014

    I have been trying to install AI CC onto my new laptop with no success. I try to run as admin it won't work. I try and delete using Adobe Cleaner software and then re install and it still won't work. Then I tried to open the Adobe photoshop elements 11 that is pre installed on this lap top and that still won't work! I am thinking there is some wrong with my settings on windows 8.

        Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe and find SLCache and delete it.
        Go to: C:\ProgramData\Adobe and find SLStore and delete it.
        Restart.

  • Can't access googlemail or talktalk mail since installing firefox 4, keeps saying server redirecting in a way it can't complete

    Do you have javascript enabled? Some cookie or javascript related extension(s) installed? Those may be causing the issue...

    Can't open any links within the emails using Firefox. I can open them in other browsers however. The message reads, "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (blockedhttp) isn't associated with any program.". How can I fix this?

    Looks like blocking software to purposely block a page by messing with the url.

    See "Firefox hangs when you quit it":

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • Hello all.   Hope someone can help me. I recently downloaded some  updates for my imac.  Since doing this the computer starts up but I get no logon box.  The home screen opens but I can't open any programs or files. I've tried rebooting, no joy. Help!!

    Hello all..   I hope someone here can help.  I recently downloaded some updates to my imac.  Since then the computer starts but I get the home screen opening without the logon box.    I can't open any programs or files and if I click on the Safari tab it disappears from the dock.  I've tried rebooting with no joy.
    I contacted technical help at Apple and was told to hold down the ctrl and alt keys with two other keys, I think the S or P keys when powering up. This worked
    and the computer seemed fine but now the problem has reappeared.  Is there a way to removed downloaded updates from the computer or revert it to an earlier state?   Sorry for the long question. Hopefully one of you clever people can help.   Simon
