I just found an old disk with PVM photos on it. How can I open them?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

Dell Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

I just found the disk yesterday, it's one I made from 2004.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I found one download, that might have opened them, but my Norton wouldn't allow it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
