Corel Photo-Paint 9 will not open

  dbleman 11:06 15 Jan 11

Not sure what is going wrong, but when I click on the icon or go through all programmes, the front page opens and immediately closes down again. The same happens if I try to load Service Pack 1. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but have the same problem. Tried F8 - reset to factory settings - front page flashes and does not start !!
I have the genuine disk in front of me -(I also have CorelDraw 11 separately). Anyway any idea of how I can get it to open please ?

To make matters worse the computer regtularly freezes!
It's a XP machine with CCleaner, Comodo fire wall and AVg virus software - all upto date
Any help appreciated.

SFC /Scannow

in the Run Box to fix corrupt files?
