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.
