Thanks.  I'll have to do that.  No, no old XP drive.  This is a brand 
new Lenovo laptop with Win7 factory installed.  I've installed quite a 
few apps so far with no problem.  Only FastStone is giving me trouble. 
I can't even do it as the admin.  It won't write a single file.  I don't 
have time to chase it down at the moment.
