Bill. We have given up on PAF downloading or opening existing files stored in the computer. We did download your suggested alternative and have been able to bring up the files to read or print. In them meantime, we sent our paf files to a cousin who could open them and who put them and the new paf program on memory sticks and mailed them back to us. Still, the new memory sticks data will NOT download. This problem began when a spyware program invaded the computer with my paf in use. We assume something corrupted the system even with a new purchased spy hunter program installed which was able to keep the spyware off our screen for now. Next, we believe we need professional help or a new computer. Rootsmagic is similar to paf and I do appreciate having my information available for additions and such but would like my old system back. My files are safe with my cousin until that time happens. Again, thanks for your imput and sharing your knowledge. Carol Jones
