Why do some programs seem to lose chunks

In a recent post the 'poster' was asking about software making a ruled card.

Ho ho, sez me, done that- just check out how I did it in Word[Office 2000]
So off I went and found I would no longer do it - the appropriate module no longer loaded.

Another program - Paint Shop Pro - in use daily -will over time begin to lose functionality- I either have to stop and go to view/customize/toolbars or dig out the disk and do a 'repair' as indeed I did with Word.

So the question is why do these fairly bloated programs lose bits?

No crashed in long time
And frequently do the the ploys to keep her sweet.
But you are right about corruption of course, very often a common DLL forget where it is looking I think.

One of my flock called to go look at her machine.
She reported that every time she wanted to print a somne thing -Nero butted in.

As Nero was a EOS built in on her machine - and she did not use it- it was an easy remedy- delete Nero.
