Default Windows 7 forum: My wordpad document is blank! Please help!

Hello there!

I got done after writing this document for three weeks...Suddenly (today), my document appears to be blank. I didn't download anything..Didn't go on any porn sites (surprisingly), or anything. In fact I didn't go on anything after I finally finished my document, which was finished yesterday.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BwA...DAydnBGM0xJRGs

there's the link to the document ^


When I highlight the document, it appears to be words there, it's just nothing shows up. It's as if all my text is white. However, the text is clearly black. The font color is still blank, so I don't understand what's going on here.

It's almost as if things were looking too good in my life, so this of course had to happen to even it out.

No matter, I'll never type and save anything in wordpad ever again, that's for sure.


Oh, and when I tried opening this in Windows XP, it shows a string of squares, so it looks like the file is definitely (mysteriously) corrupted.

Any way to fix this? If anybody fixes this, I'll pay that person 10 dollars via paypal



Thank you very much!

Your file looks badly corrupted. Have you tried to take a look with hex editor?

Hmm I just thought.....Can't I restore my computer to a previously known date? Like say, just a few days ago?
