    Hello

    I decided to install my printer's software on my computer. During installation, there was an error. I looked a t the information that came with the cd and stated that it can only be used for versions of windows up to xp. I have windows vista. I decided to unistall the program from the add/remove options. It said that there was an error and decided to hide the brother icon in that folder. When i start the computer, the brother program tries to start and states an error.

    With this software comes paperport 8.0 SE, which i tried to uninstall separately. An error occurs and the process is stopped. All the programs which came from this software are corrupted.

    Any advice on this annoying matter would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Try System Restore and restore from a date/time before you installed the software. From the Start button, type in System Restore and run it. If that didn't fix the problem, go back to system restore and "Undo" the restore.

    NOTE: ALWAYS DO A SYSTEM BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING SOFTWARE OR REMOVING IT.
