Re: Downloading problem ( PAF4)

Yes, that download is quite ok, Lois. What you are getting is the "setup" files for the PAF 4 program, so it doesn't have the "family" icon. That comes when the program is setup and will appear on your "PAF.exe" file and also on your "*.paf" files (your data files - substitute family name there for *).

When you reinstall, just make sure you close down all running programs, except EXPLORER (your Windows program) and SYSTRAY. Do this by pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE, highlighting each listed program, in turn (except above two) and click END TASK. Repeat this until only the above two are left showing. Then click START|SETTINGS|CONTROL PANEL|ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS|INSTALL and then browse to where you have saved the PAF download (the little "red box" icon).Click OPEN then on the next window, click FINISH. The installation will then commence.

Hope this helps...

Lance
