I am having issues when trying to open a fastq or fasta file in notepad or word. When I open them it just shows an unreadable code e.g.
and so on!
In turn, the blast software I am trying to run does not recognise the data. I have also tried to open these files on another desktop, in notepad and they display the data as it should be.
I am using a brand new Dell optiplex 7020, with windows 7 pro, Intel i5-4590, 64 bit.
Any help would be much appreciated
