What Are PANIC Files?
PANIC files are System Files primarily associated with UNIX Crash Report.
(Other files may also be using the PANIC file extension. If you know of any other software using the PANIC file extension, please contact us so that we can update our information accordingly.)
Opening PANIC Files
The easiest way to open a PANIC file is by double clicking on it, which will let the computer decide the best way to open it according to the Windows PANIC file association settings.
If your computer opens your PANIC file, but it's the incorrect application, you'll need to change your Windows registry file association settings. In other words, Windows is associating PANIC file extensions with the wrong software program.
Quick Tip: Incorrect PANIC file association errors can be a symptom of other underlying issues within your Windows operating system. These invalid entries can also produce associated symptoms such as slow Windows startups, computer freezes, and other PC performance issues.
If the PANIC file fails to open, it is highly likely that your system lacks the application needed to open PANIC files. It is common for several applications to share the same PANIC file extension label, so it could take some trial and error to figure out what application actually opens your file (if any).
Thus, I highly recommend that you contact the source of your file for more details on what program you need to open your PANIC file. This will save your a lot of time and headaches!
Remember to always take caution when opening files that come from unfamiliar sources or emails.
