    OK It didnt work... But Im certain I know why. I did not do this download right... When I put the CD I made into the computer -- a working computer I get a screen in which I have to click on the program to open it. I know thats not right. I dont have that option on the sick machine. That program needs to already be open and ready to go. So I am gonna start over and try to use this Poweriso you tell me about above. I have to go back to my sisters to do that. Unless someone has a different idea. But just to make sure I have this right I want to go over it.

    First I download the program. Thats where I had part of my problem cause I didnt know where to download it. When I clicked on the link you gave me it took me right to skydrive and that threw me. I thought I had to join that and download there and yada, yada.
    I assume I can just download it right to my desktop if I so desire and then do the exracting. So I didnt do the extracting correct.

    I decided not to switch to usb and just get cd's so I thought I didnt need this Poweriso so when I got the instructions to burn above it didnt work the same. And... I just right clicked on the program and sent the program to the cd. I dont know if that is the right way either. Well Is sure it was not the right way. So I have to start from square one. Im Ready!

    OK I have started over. I downloaded both the Poweriso and the NEW download. I started with the rt click and properties, unblock, ok, apply
    Then I rt clicked again and did not get the option to extract as you told me to do. I got: open, open with, share with, Norton Antivirus, restore previous versions, send to, cut, copy, create shortcut, delete, rename, properties... I was so looking forward to this working smooth if I followed all your directions. I didnt think that something would be different than what you said... HELP again. Aren't I a pain in the ass?

    Then I started PowerIso and got a totally different thing then what you have above. What is wrong with me. I am usually really good at following directions but this is just not working for me.

    I have another idea unless someone wants to share something.

    Oh and I wanted bobkn to know that this isnt about self confidence... It about all things that are given to me as directions somehow not working out -- maybe the differences in computers - possibly virus protection --- but for some reason the things that people are telling me just arent clicking the way they are supposed to.

    Since this didnt work out I am uninstalling PowerIso... so I have a question. I am in Control panel, programs and features and want to know if I need all these different Roxio programs? I have 9 different Roxio programs.

    OK so I guess I must have extracted this zip file cause I have new.iso on my desktop. But I dont know how to burn it. I thought I could just send to the cd but it tells me that all the properties do not go there. Is there some other way to burn this as an image?

    If you have the new.iso , burn it with this:

    burncdcc.zip

    Start up the pc

    Watch for writing on the screen- ( this will come up straight away, before windows starts ) - it will say something like DEL for SETUP, F11 ( or some other key ) for boot menu or boot selection, or similar.


    Just press enter.
    Right now I have the same cd that I had yesterday but when i put it in the sick comp it just went right back to the password page that I have been stuck on. That is what didnt work. I had your instructions printed out in front of me all ready to go but it just didnt cooperate with me.

    So if I have the same CD which has the NEW.iso file on it than what do I have to do that is different. What I thought is that I dont think I burned it onto the cd. i just right clicked on it and used send to. So when the cd goes into the computer here I have to click on it to get there. It doesnt open itself by putting it into the comp.

    Does that make sense?

    OK I just downloaded it and I think its right now. So I am going to take the directions that you gave me (SIW2) and go to my computer. Hopefully I have it right this time. Just cause my sister is getting frustrated with me. The PowerIso program downloaded AVG Toolbar to her comp ~ she has Norton antivirus ~ and changed her homepage. I hope nothing else is messed up. I feel bad that I spent so much time messing with this.... on her time. Again I will let you know what happens.
