    I was trying to open a RTF file from a website, but when I tried to open it I got hexadecimal numbers and other garbage. What should I do?

    what program were you using to open it.

    You need a word processing program like word, lotus or word perfect.

    You should also be able to open in notepad.

    If it is full of garbage then it's not a rtf file, it's probably a word .doc that has just been renamed and not saved as .rtf

    I can open it on other computers, but not this one. It opens in the browser on computers that work.
