File extension CONF (.CONF) information

Windows cannot open CONF files?

If Windows is unable to open file extension .CONF you may have registry related errors or may not have the appropriate program installed. We strongly recommend that you run a free registry scan.

Appropriate program:

The .CONF file extension identifies configuration files for Linux or UNIX operating systems, and also identifies various initial settings for some other software and programs. In principle, although configuration files are found on most, if not all, operating systems, and come in a variety of formats, the file extension .CONF is specifically associated with Linux and UNIX (for example the early DOS/Windows configuration file was called CONFIG.SYS). The .CONF file can be edited using a simple text editor, however this should be done with a certain care.. Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair CONF file extension association errors.


  • Performance: To optimize memory and CPU usage for CONF files run a free performance scan.
  • Stability: Fix CONF errors to make your system and applications more stable.
  • Drivers: Scan your PC for the outdated drivers which lead to system errors and slowdowns.
