i just upgraded from me to win2k, (yeah i know it's "not recommended"), and i am having problems with a few programs.
the first is adaptec (roxio) easy cd creator, and direct cd 4. i know i need to reinstall, but i did something kinda dumb... i uninstalled, but i don't have the cd. i do, but it's a "system recovery cd" that has all the apps on it that were preinstalled at the factory, and win2k won't read it. it says that it was made for me, and can't be read on this computer.
the other program is norton antivirus 2001. same deal here.
does anyone know how to get the win2k versions for these programs? or do i have to buy them again?

It depends on how you feel about pirated software. You have a legal right to own a copy of Roxio and Norton since your computer came with them (sounds good to me).

Just check any P2P network and you'll be able to find both quite easily....or you can download demos and find cracks/keygens on the web I'm sure.

thank you Mithrilhall. i didn't know that there was a debated issue about owning something that was installed on my computer when i bought it. (of course i do! if they didn't want me to have it, they shouldn't have put it on there before they sold it to me!)
