unable to open .cps extensions; need to restore them

The other day I received the new AVG 2011 Anti-Virus Download.

As part of an introductory offer AVG allowed me to try out on a trial basis some new features including deleting cloned files.

I tried out deleting cloned files and this was my fatal mistake because in doing so I inadvertently deleted files necessary to use .cps files and foolishly did not have a back up.

Is there a method of restoring the .cps files?

This is quite important to me as at work I must use .cps files on a daily basis.

Any help will be greatly appreciated and I promise anyone who helps me resolve this problem that I will write Santa and ask him to bring you extra milk and cookies at Christmas time for your being so good.

Thank you

Old Corel Photo House

Corel Photo House is not on my laptop and is not the cause and is in no way related to the cause of the problem that I am seeking a solution for.

I am using a DELL INSPIRON Model E1505 with Windows XP

Thank you

Thank you.

This tells me it may or may not be a Corel Photo House file.

Please tell the forum what application made these files so we can find solutions.

Re: .cps files

What program did you use to work with that .cps files? You forgot to tell. It's not a program that comes with Windows, so it must have been installed later, either by you or by somebody else.

Anyway, the solution is to reinstall that program. If it is "at work" as you write, the IT-guy at work will be able to do it. He surely knows what program it is, and he surely can install it.
If not, the IT-management (IT-governance) at your work is so bad that they deserve to go broke immediately. Sorry to see that you might lose your job then. The nice thing: that incompetent IT-guy will lose it also. It's his fault, after all.
