How to open ASC file? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am trying to open an ASC file and everytime i do an error comes an says "windows cannot open this file. to open this file windows needs to know the program that created it. windows can go online to look it up."  So i click for windows to go online to look it up and it brings up a page about corrupt windows registry, outdated device drivers, and virus/spyware solutions. I have looked at all this and you have to pay to fix registry problems. is there so way i can get the file to open? and how do i do it? i tried opening it as adobe,notepad, or microsoft word but it wont open. what can i do? I am trying to open this for a women i work with

  • First, this is the wrong forum.  You'd probably want to place future requests in http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx

    Second, you should normally be able to open an ACS file using Notepad.  However, you need to be careful as these can contain viruses, especially if they're sent via e-mail.
