Corrupt File

I have a file that is corrupt in Paradox 8.  It has 241 records in it, I looked at it in word.  When I click on the corrupt Paradox file, it opens Paradox, but none of the selections open the file.  I can put the file on a Windows XP Professional or Windows NT 4.0 server to try the recovery.

Is there anyway to fix it?  

TIA,

Jess

RAVI:

I ran the ParadoxRecovery software. It said it fixed .db files.  the file I ran it on on was a .FSL file.  I got the following Message after running the program:

"Internal shell Error.  contact the software developers.  Code=0xC00000005, Address=0x10005889"

any ideas what may be wrong or if this error message is correct?

TIA,

Jess
