I downloaded a song from imesh, but without noticing that it was a vbscript file. After downloading it some of my other files have became vbscript files also, including songs,and all of my pictures. How would I go about changing them back to there original files? Thank you,


This question was answered on May 4, 2002. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Try this:

In Windows Explorer, find the files you want to change & right-click on one of them From the sub menu that opens, choose Rename Rename the file to it's original name, using the file extension you want it to become.

If this works, then do the same for the remaining files you want to change.
