I copy the green filename files of any type from my notebook where O.S. is Windows XP and open it from another desktop where Window7 was installed, but it return me an error. I can't open at all. Is this VIRUS infected files, how can I resolve this problem.

Files with a green filename are encrypted. You need to have the correct keys to be able to open them. support.microsoft.com/kb/307877 –  ChrisF May 25 '11 at 13:15
