If you are a frequent user of Microsoft Outlook, you must be familiar with some of the common Outlook problems. But, we are not going to discuss the common Outlook problems here. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine came to me asking for a solution to an Outlook issue that he encountered. I checked his Outlook application and found out that the issue was strange. When I tried to open a new email in the inbox, an error message popped up stating “An extension failed to initialize. Can’t open file: Extend.dat”.
On my lookout for a solution to fix this annoying error, I found out that the same error could arise when a user tries to launch the Out of office assistant or even when he attempts to exit the Outlook application. Once started, this annoying error message could be surfacing until you troubleshoot it. I am pleased to describe here the troubleshooting steps that I worked out to fix this error.
Following the above instructions, you would be able to successfully replace the corrupted Extend.dat file in your Outlook application with the proper one. Corrupted Extend.dat is responsible for a number of Outlook problems including the error labelled ‘An extension failed to initialize. Can’t open file: Extend.dat.’

Web browsers play an important role in a corporate environment. It is important that you choose the web browser wisely to keep the communication safe and effective. If you are a home user, it is easy for you to choose or change a web browser as and when you like. However, when it comes to the corporate world, you are talking about hundreds or thousands of machines in a single network and therefore, choosing the best operating system on all these machines is important for effective and reliable communication and browsing.
Two major internet browsers compete to become first in the corporate world. They are the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Now, even though the number of Internet Explorer users has come down considerably over the years, many experts still support Internet Explorer as the best browser for the corporate world. In this post, let us find out why Internet Explorer is still considered a favorite over Mozilla Firefox.
Integrated in the operating system
This is one of the major features and a major advantage of Internet Explorer. As the browser installs automatically with the operating system, there is no need to devote additional time for installing a separate browser. You need to consider installing a new browser only if the default browser does not work well on your computer. Keep in mind that in big business houses, there may be thousands of computers and installing a new browser on these machines can be a tedious task.
User settings in the browser
Both Internet Explorer and Mozilla have this feature. According to Mozilla Firefox support, with this feature, all the bookmarks and user-settings are stored in the program. This helps users to work with their settings even if they are logged on from a different computer in the network. That is, you can start using your bookmarks and other settings from another machine.
Managing group policies
Here, Internet Explorer is a clear winner. You can manage the policies centrally and this feature would be very helpful in the corporate environment. For instance, you can centrally change the browser settings on all browsers in the network. This will help you to keep all the browsers in the network with the same settings.
Therefore, while comparing Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, the former is a clear winner for the corporate environment. For more features on these web browsers, you may contact Mozilla Firefox support or Microsoft support.
