    after you remove a program how do you re-intall it especially if you do not have a start up disk to do so...can you use your program/file manager to do so?

    If you removed the program using Add/Remove Programs, and now want it back without an installation disk. I think you're out of luck. I never heard of Add/Remove Program to add a program without an installation disk especially for a third party software. Usually the add feature is used to install features that weren't install in a regular installation.

    Not sure what operating system you are using. But here are some steps you can follow to create a startup disk. It may differ depending on the operating system.

    Double click on My Computer ICON
    Double click on Control Panel
    Double click on Add/Remove Programs
    Click on Start - up Disk button
    Click on Create Disk button
    Put disk in A drive
    Hit OK button
