Advice Needed On Installation Of Downloaded Progs.

  dublincity 14:05 13 Mar 03

I am a complete novice & have downloaded free progs from ZdNet OK, either (a) to floppies or (b) to C disc (to be installed later or immediately).

A few progs were isnstalled successfully (some had to be unzipped) but most were not. I seem to have stored them in Notepads & each in turn seems to be stored in various folders.

Sometimes I'm asked where they are. When I finally access them, they are written in either one of two scripts, one of which, I think, is Java. I've had warnings that if I 'Save' them, they will become de-formatted and then, presumably, useless.

All the technical terms are new to me. Any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks. Mike.
