I'm having file extension problems again! What are file extensions? A file extension is a suffix to the name of a computer file applied to indicate the file format of its contents. File extensions can be considered metadata as they commonly used to indicate how data is stored in the file.

There are numeroues types of file extensions. It's the .GIF for graphics,.MUS for music and .TXT for plain text. File extension TMP is temporary file/folder. Temporary files are used for a wide range of tasks. They are usually deleted after their purpose is served but circumstances sometimes cause them to be retained. Another type of an extension file is file extension torrent. It is associated with BitTorrent clients, and specify a file which stores metadata about files available for download via any torrent compatible peer-to-peer. Then there's there the most frequent executable file extension on your computer, DLL for dynamic link library. File extension DLL is used Microsoft Windows applications to store executable code which could be shared between several applications.

Majority of file extension problems are registry error related. Installing a new software that becomes the default editor for a file format does not revert back to the old default editor once that software is uninstalled. This is one of the causes of registry errors that makes opening of some files difficult.If you have this problem too, hop over to for a free scan.
