There are currently 9 reported associations related to files with the .asp extension. The first and most common is called an Active Sever Page, which is a web page generated by the server using ActiveX scripting. Unlike a conventional web page which is designed and published entirely in HTML format, the .asp file contains various scripts that are run through the ASP engine and then returned to the browser as plain HTML. The advantage of Active Server Pages over standard HTML is the ability to implement dynamic websites that don't need constant updating or re-coding. Scripts are utilized to perform those functions on every load of the page, keeping dynamic content fresh and relevant.
Regtask was able to clean up my computer and speed up the performance! I highly recommend it
My computer was always popping up with registry errors and I couldnt get rid of them. Regtask did the job for me and took less then 5 minutes to speed up my computer.
I have to admit I'm no computer geek. When something goes wrong, I usually have to call someone to fix it and it costs me a lot of money. When my computer started to experience random freezes, I just used Regtask and now it works normally again.
My computer is 5 years old and runs extremely slow now. I was a bit sceptical about using Regtask, but just decided to give it a shot in the end and it worked out fantastically for me.

Errors with .asp files are almost always due to improper coding. If the scripts are not written correctly they may return data that is unusable by a standard web browser. There are occasionally hiccups in the ASP engine that might return faulty data, and in some cases cause a web browser to crash. The most serious problem with .asp files is the relative ease with which they can be infected. They can be used by hackers to spread virus infections across and extremely wide range of computer users. For this reason, it is highly recommended that users always have fully active anti virus protection when accessing web pages with the .asp extension.

The next program which uses the .asp file extension is Alphacam, a CAD/CAM System for the manufacture of metal, wood and stone parts. The .asp file for this program is specifically designated for data files related to stone products. It is a proprietary format and cannot be opened or edited outside of the Alphacam software. Errors are rare due to the nature of the data in the file, but corrupt data can cause software freezes or crashes.
At one time Adobe's Photoshop software utilized the .asp extension for its photo file index. They have since dropped this extension, but many Windows users report a problem with Windows opening Photoshop whenever they click on as .asp link. For some reason simply changing file associations through the file manager window is not effective, so the Windows registry must be edited to stop his from happening. Users who are comfortable doing this can find the instructions through various internet outlets, others should consult a repair professional to do the task.
Reports have linked the .asp file to other programs, some of which have been verified while others have not.

This presentation package was a competitor of Microsoft Powerpoint and used the .asp extension on its completed presentation files. Procomm Plus from Symantec was a terminal emulation package designed to allow business machines running one terminal to access and transfer files to a terminal of a different type. Procomm's .asp file was a language scripting file used by the emulator.
