What is the most efficient technique to read a binary file ( such as a .dll

BinaryReader is mainly useful for when you are dealing with specific
data types _other_ than an array of bytes.
As for "the most efficient technique" for reading a binary file, it all
depends. But, depending on ...System.xml.xmlnode class and XSD file

I frequently use styles to format my documents. However, sometimes I have

example when I save the file there will be outline numbering applied to
Heading 1, Heading 2, etc. but when I open it next time the numbering is gone
or the font on the numbering has changed. I've also had my paragraph spacing

After reformatting my hard drive etc. Outlook will not
read the information in my main PST file. I have two
others, Archive.pst and Hotmail.pst and these read ok.
The main Outlook.pst only shows what looks to be the
default folders and all are empty. I have tried
the "detect and repair" program and tried delecting all
the Outlook files and re-copying them from my back up
disk. I am sure that the Outlook.pst file is ok, it's
just that Outlook won't read it for some reason. Thanks
for any help you can provide.

I just got a new computer and was setting up defaults in Excel, and I
mistakenly entered 'My Documents' in the Tools/Options/General field
for "At startup, open all files in." So when I start Excel it tries to
open EVERY file in My Domuments and I have to use Task Manager to kill
it. I opened in Safe Mode to change that option, but that doesn't seem
to work. (Ie, when I open Excel again in regular mode it goes back to
opening every file.)
Is there another way to fix this? THanks!

"Meg" <meg(removeme)@...Office 2000 (Delay to open Files)
I'm having a challenge on a particular computer opening any office
documents. If we double click the file to open it (network or local source)
it shows the hour glass for what feels like hours - it may eventually open,
sometime we give up.
Now, if we open the application first (i.e.: Excel) then go to File-> Open
and select any file it opens immediately. I've had this problem before, the
only solution I could find at the time was wipe the machine and start over. I
tried a repair or re-installation of Office, no change.
