So Lorrainemd27,

\015\012Does the Operating system still work on your PC or is it beyound the grave at this point? I would try putting that disk in another computer that has a DVD-ROM and see what comes up when you are in Windows. I couldnt find any technical info about this software so I cant say for sure how to rescue your PC. So many companies have so many ways of bundling there software it gets hard to figure out after a while. I would try to find someone with an OEM disk, it could be easier to load that way.

\015\012Hope this helps you out. Sorry I could be more help.
