    My wife's computer has Win. 7 64 bit. She always makes calendars this time of year using Print Shop 23.1. It was doing crazy things. So I did some checking and while Broderbund does say it is compatible with Win. 7 they don't mention 32 or 64 bit. I did some searching on their support page it said to go into properties and set the program compatibility for Win. 7. Also set the program to run in the administrator mode. Now it is doing a lot better ,but every time the program is opened we get a pop up asking if we want to allow this program to modify the computer. Can the pop up be stopped?

    Those are UAC prompts.

    The only way is to disable the UAC, but it's not recommended for safety reasons.

    The wife and I both are using Printshop 23.1 on a Windows 7 64 bit machine.

    We have not ever had issues with it, and do NOT use the two settings that have been suggested to you.
    Clear those settings , and just run it as it was installed.

    Dave before making those settings the calendar she created would disappear. Now it is working,not great but at least she is getting the calendars made.

    It is weird. She created the calendar, then when she tries to add birthdays and holidays the calendar has disappeared. Then it may show up again. We have only had problems with creating the calendars in Print Shop.

    I still do not understand, you are saying that after she saves the calendar, and she wants to add more data, the file is no longer there?

    I'm not really sure. All I know is that she would open Print Shop and try to look at the Calendar it was gone.

    Well, I would say that it is NOT being saved.
