Try a system restore if you have XP.

This is probably being "picky" but please don't say "This months disc". This month is March but the latest PCA Cover Disk is for May.

I just looked on "this months" disc but couldn't find what you say. I found it on the May 2006 Issue 130.

thats the disc i mean: may one sry

For those of us who don't have the disk, do you want to give more details of the software installed?

There is 5 full security suites Anony Surf/Anti Spam 2005/Protector 2005/Net Cleaner/Spyware killer,i havent installed any as the apps i have now do what most of these do anyway.

Diodorus Siculus, on the DVD it is

Idigicon Net Cleaner, Idigicon Spyware Killer, Idigicon Anti Spam, Idigicon AnonySurf and Idigicon Internet Protector.

Whether these are any better than what most of the Forum members use I don't know. I certainly won't be installing them.

ACOLYTE, six minutes late, (again).

Can't help - they mean nothing to me.

I'd suggest the system restore approach for ding dong dave - then a general clean up with CCleaner and an install of the old reliables frequently recommended here.

I never install from the free discs and avoid the difficulties you describe - there are plenty of tried and tested programmes online as Dio.. suggests - I used to do so in the past and freequently got into difficulties and had to uninstall and repair the damage - jarbie
