Notes about the CAN file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries
, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The CAN file type is primarily associated with '.Can Encryptor/Decryptor'. .Can is a way of encrypting your files, so they can not be viewed or accessed without decanning them. They can either just be canned or cancoded. The cancode is a 5 digit code that can be entered before canning and then has to be entered again when decanning. It's been reported that if the file has not been coded that a simple rename to the original file name will allow the file to be opened by the appropriate archive program (e.g., RAR, ZIP, etc.).
