I am having problems opening a lot of my files...when opened by notepad or
word it is in a font that is unreadable. a few are .dll files and a few
..dat. they were readable before. is there a way to convert them? or
anyway to be able to read them?

Please name a file - as most .DAT files and all .DLL files are binary files
and not text files (readable) by Notepad.
