When trying new software in the future, use a Virtual Machine environment to do so.
the most. But have been trying out Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007
for the last couple of months. If you use MS VPC 2007, make sure you install Additions as soon as you get ready to boot it up the first time. Saves a lot of headaches!
Using a simple Virtual PC on your desktop, you can run any of these programs with reckless abandon and have absolutely ZERO worries of it infecting your primary operating system.
Oh yeah, thanks for the heads up about that BS software. Not that I would use it, but it's always good to try and find low cost/free solutions for those less technically inclined people we all have to deal with.
