garmanma, thanks. I kinda figured it could be safe, because if he got caught it could mean his job, but because he kept saying go ahead and get it now, it made me more nervous about it!
The stuff on my desktop: Linksys had me get Linksys upgrade, a "WRT54GSv5v6_v1.52.2_fw" which is a .bin file, and tftp. One of those opened the .bin file. Then The Switched-On-School tech dl
"SOS cleanup tool", a data utility(67)--which has the SOS icon, and a dotnetcleanup_tool2. Also, there is a shortcut for the student application, even though the whole SOS was removed at Add/remove
I don't know if I would need the linksys stuff at a lter time or not, but if it's several months or something, why not dl it then?
The SOS problem is not resolved, so I s'pose those could stay until I can get the school program up and running.
Though I wasn't planning on having to do this, since the dive space is only 40 GB, I installed that school program back onto my son's computer so he could get back to his school. Got all the subjects installed, etc (Took some time) and then when I tried to load the backups from SOS that i backed up last week before I did the clean install, I got the same error as yesterday on my computer.
"cannot establish a valid database connection Please contact technical support"
So all that time was fer nuttin! I was ready to kick the computer-- or SOMETHING! LOL!
I guess I'm going to have to uninstall it on his computer again, and then be on the phone with SOS tech support again for half the day
