    Installing Programs

    2 questions

    1. I recently had to re-format my whole computer and I subsequently lost a program that I had installed on there that I need, i lost the disc but I installed it onto a friends computer, he has a CD burner. Could I somehow copy the program files from his computer onto a disc?

    2. i re-installed windows XP however when i re-installed it, there seems to be a few files missing as i cannot operate Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, its saying the IE5Setup.exe file is missing, how do i get around this, surely i dont have to re-install the whole program?

    1. Depends on the program. Try copying all files and folders and running the program. Any errors you encounter (missing bla.dll) must be resolved by searching you friends computer for the file and copying it to your system folder. You maybe lucky.

    2. Do an update of windows or ask the helpdesk of your computer supplier. If that doesn't help try copying the file from a friend and running it.

    BACKUP and set a RESTORE POINT before doing any of above!

    My copy of that file is located in C:/program files/Outlook Express/

    There is an option somewhere, I think under start -> run then type msconfig, to restore specific files from the cd.

    You appear to have re-installed windows incorrectly, some of your system files are missing.
    you should correct the errors before installing anymore programs.
