How to extract depends a little on which program you're using to extract the files.

If you don't have a program on your computer to unzip files with, you'll need to get one. Windows XP has its own extract tool, but earlier operatings systems do not.

Here's a free extract tool. I have not used it but it seems to have good ratings.

Let me explain.Using Windows 98se,Dell Demension 700xps,Pentium 3.
I downloaded WinPFind and tried to use it in safe mode.When I got to the scan screen, I clicked on scan, the button went grey, the arrow went to an hour glass.Wasn't any light flashing, and in all, nothing happened. The WinPFind didnot have the .exe at the end if this helps you any.I tried to run this a half dozen times or more to no avail. I used Winzip and tried Ken Wards Zipper, if I used them correctly.
Any help would be greatly appriciated..........
Thank-You,
John God


Thanks for your help and support. I think the problem is resolved.If I need any more help I'll give a call.
Thank-You,
John God

If you used them correctly, you should have the original file that shows up as some kind of zipped folder. You should also have the unzipped files somewhere, which should show the teevee-like file to start the program, a text file, and another folder with plugins. If you do not have a folder with these files, you have not correctly unzipped.

It should work with any version of Windows, according to Oldtimer.

If it's working, you double-click on the teevee-looking file and it will open up a box with a couple of buttons on top and an empty screen below. You click on the Start Scanning button and wait while it scans.

When unzipping, pay attention to where the file is unzipping to. That will tell you where to look for the new files.
