    Default Anyone know what this is please?

    I have a file which has found its way into MY Docs. It reads:
    OOo_2.2.1_Win32Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.exe.ren
    Any ideas please? It is 108MB
    Thank you

    It's the Java Runtime Environment.

    The .ren on the end sounds a bit suspect

    Or, as expalined in the previous thread where yoy asked... the whole thing is the Open Office installer O-o....exe

    It is the .ren bit that doesn't sound right

    Java isn't 108MB. I would say its the Open Office installer
    Unsure why it ends in .ren though ... maybe a backup or renamed file?

    As others have already said, it's an Open Office installer. A simple search in Google would have told you this.

    Also, you have already asked the same question here, but you may have forgotten :P : http://forums.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?p=582386

    Thanks for your reply. Yes I am aware I asked this question before, but no-one could explain the .ren part of it. As it was part of another question I thought I would ask again. Didn't know this was not okay.

    Not a problem. I didn't mean to come across as rude. I don't think the .ren means anything at all. It's just a program you have downloaded into your My Docs folder. Delete it if you don't need it
