    Ill give this a try later today. But I'm a little worried about forgetting the "path". Not sure what that means exactly.

    By forgetting the Program Path I meant I forgot the link to show the Desktop.
    Which I recovered after hours of searching.

    I explained it in a previous post.
    Did you watch the video I made?

    That's where I got it & there were no warnings.
    I will search for an alternate download site & post it.

    Tried your link but it wont let me install it without accepting and running something called "ZoneAlarm free firewall". So that's a no-go

    Give me a few minutes & I'll find another link.

    I zipped my copy & attached it.
    Unzip it & run the exe.

    EDIT--

    I scanned it with Avast--
