Can't display page of .chm file downloaded from internet


When I open a .chm file downloaded from internet, I can't see any page but the "page can't be displayed" message.

I downloaded a lot of .chm books from the internet. But when I tried to open the book it show all the pages with the message "Page can't be displayed". I thought that file might be corrupted. It happened with all the books.

I was very much frustrated because these were a lot of books and most importantly they were very good one. I searched on the internet to repair .chm files but all in vain. I found an add on for Fire Fox to open and read .chm file inside the Fire Fox but most of the files did not display correctly, especially the formating and navigation.

Solution

One day I by chance right clicked on one of the book, clicked on properties and then clicked on the UnBlock option. After that I opened the file and it shows correctly. So I came to know that whenever we download a file from the internet then Windows block this file to execute harmful script on our computer.

So please UnBlock any file if it does not behave well.

It waisted a lot of my time and caused a great tension.

I hope that it would be help full to some one.
