    I tried Foxit but found it lacking in some features, like pulling text out of a pdf file without a lot of alterations. I currently use Nitro Reader 3 which does a better job.

    This sounds exactly like what the shop was finding when they went looking for me. Nobody is making a larger capacity hard drive that would fit the space availble. Mine is 320G, so if I can't prune...

    Thank you for that tip. I got away from Acrobat Reader because it was very bloated and filled with features I had no use for. What about Acrobat Pro 8? My HP EliteBook 2530p laptop has limited hard...

    Installing older version of MS Office

    I purchased Office 2003 Professional in 2004, but never installed it since I could use the version available at work -- which did not include the database module. I am now retired and want the Office...

    In my opinion, this is the best solution. When mailing SD cards, if you're worried about the card getting crunched in the automated equipment or dropped and stepped on/run over, a padded mailer will...

    So you're saying that, if I'm lucky, the old program will be totally unaware that my computer is 64-bit?

    I implied in my initial post that it ran in Windows 95-Windows 7. In actuality, that was...

    Thank you for that suggestion, but I already tried it. Just to be on the safe side, I tried installing in Administrator mode, too. No luck. Same totally unhelpful error message for both the laptop...

    I run 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. I have an old program that only runs in 32-bit Windows (95-Win7). It won't even install in my 64-bit Windows. If I set up a virtual 32-bit Windows XP (using...

    I found that Revo was doing a bad job of uninstalling things. I switched to COMODO's free Program Manager, which, so far, has handled everything I've tried it with, including 64-bit programs (the...
