Hi Dan. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist. Here's something you can try.
Go here: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
You'll have 30 days to use the pro trial. Uninstall your programs using the Advanced mode.
This thoroughly removes a program, doing a much better job the than the uninstaller that comes with the program.
Then run Microsoft's file checking utility on your drive. To do that click Start and in the search are type: cmd
Right-click on the cmd search result at the top and select Run as Administrator
At the blinking prompt in the black window type: sfc /scannow and press Enter.
As the utility runs it checks Windows system files for errors and tries to fix anything it finds wrong.
Then re-install your program/s and see if they work.
Hi Dan. Happy new year. I apologize for the delay. It was the result of end-of-year activities.
Sometimes when rolling back to Window 7 from Windows 10 system files can get corrupted and
things no longer work as they once did. Running sfc /scannow is a great utility but it has it's limitations and doesn't work
in every situation. Doing a clean installation of Windows 7 will put things
back as they were and your programs will work once again.
