    My version is through The Learning Company, Kid Pix Deluxe 4 School. Does that make a difference? I cannot find the users folders.

Follow the procedure below to import a graphic or background into Kid Pix® Deluxe 4.

  1. NOTE: Kid Pix Deluxe 4 will import the following graphic or background file types: Bitmap (*.bmp), JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpeg), GIF (.gif) or Macintosh® Picture (*.pic, *.pict).
  2. While in the Paint Zone portion of Kid Pix® Deluxe 3, position the mouse pointer at the top-left portion of the screen where the screen is black. The mouse pointer should appear as a triangle.
  3. Click once. The Menu bar should appear.
  4. Move the mouse to position the pointer over the Add menu option and click Add Graphic (to import a graphic) or Import Background (to import a background) from the menu that appears. The Add Graphic (or Import Background) window will open.
  5. Click the down arrow button to the right of the Files of type: field and select the file type for the desired graphic (or background) to import (i.e., *.bmp, *.jpg, .gif or *.pic).
  6. Using the Look in: field, navigate to the drive and location of the desired graphic (or background) and click once on the file name to select it. A preview of the selected graphic file may appear in the Preview: box.
  7. NOTE: To the right of the preview box is a list of four options describing how the graphic or background will appear when added (or imported) to the current picture. By default, Center at Original Size will be selected if adding a graphic and Shrink/Stretch to fill Canvas will be selected if importing a background. If needed, select another option. The preview to the left may change.
  8. Click OK. The graphic or background selected in Step 5 will appear on the current picture in the Paint Zone. If a graphic was added, adjust the graphic as needed.
  9. NOTE: After adding a graphic (or importing a background) to a picture in Paint Zone, the picture can be saved and added to a slide show in the Slide Show screen.


The picture can only be added to the user but the user should set it as background.

To import the picture manually to the user account,
Just you have to put the pictures in each user account , To do that follow these steps

  1. Open Windows Explorer from the start Menu
  2. Navigate to c:\Program files\Broderbund\KidPix Deluxe 4\Users
  3. Here you can view each user as a Folder name.
  4. Inside each folder you can see a folder name MyBackground
  5. By copying the file to this folder, enable the user to access these files.
  6. You should repaet this process for all the 26 computers
Please leave me comment, if you need furthur assistance

I have installed the software on my students' computers under my teacher account. When students log in, they can't run the program. I can't install under their accounts, as they do not have...

I'm not familiar with the specific application, however the most likely problem is that the software requires write access to either or both its program directory or registry hive, most likely the former
You may be able to adjust the program settings to prevent it from trying to write to the program directory.
Alternatively you can grant access to this directory to your students.
This directory will most likely be in something like C:\program files\Encore
To do this
  1. Log in as admin account (presumably your teacher account)
  2. browse to C:\Program Files
  3. Right Click on Encore (or whatever directory you installed into)
  4. Select Properties
  5. Select Security
  6. Enable 'Modify' privilege to a user group that 'students' are a member of..(you may have to add the group and then enable modify)
  7. Login as student and test

If this doesn't work you could try editing the registry hive but this is riskier, so if the above doesn't work then please provide further info including what OS version you are using etc and I'll try to help you further
I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away!
Please take the time to rate this answer
Many Thanks K.

How to powering back freeze computer

<p>The computer freezes for programs, many processes running in the background react and install third party software on your computer. If you do not take steps to avoid this problem, the computer will probably freeze continues and possible problems with hardware and software that may result in loss of important documents and files. Start the computer from sleep can also lead to paralysis of the computer as different programs simultaneously loaded in the background. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Turn the computer off and restart it from sleep. Note that your computer crashes at startup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Close all third party software (software not written by Microsoft) before the computer is idle. Programs running in the background are often the reason why a computer freezes during startup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Take your anti-virus program on the hard drive of your computer from viruses and spyware in the treatment of the computer and the record so he could slow down and freeze for scanning. Will remove all possible threats to your anti-virus program. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Press' Ctrl + Alt + Del "to open Task Manager on your computer. Close all programs that are shown as "not responding ". For unknown processes running in the background and check the registry of unnecessary memory. <br />

MS Office Home/Student 2007 Product Key

What you have is a trail version of the program which is installed on many new PCs. Unless you buy the software and get the key you will no longer be able to use the software and you might as well uninstall it. Microsoft Home Office Student costs around $100. You can also download for free Open Office which will do all Microsoft Office will do and costs you nothing. You can get it here.

Animations and stickers do not work in KidPix

I had the same problem and I found out it's to do with Quicktime. You'll need to uninstall your Quicktime (if you're sure this won't affect other programs you have on your computer). The stickers and animations won't work if you have the recent version of Quicktime installed on your computer. Uninstall Kid Pix, uninstall Quicktime then re-install Kid Pix. Kid Pix deluxe 4 comes with its own, older version of Quicktime. This is what solved the problem for me.

Cpu is running 100% constantly? ran my antivirus and nothing was found.

You most likely have many background programs running. These programs run constantly in the background, often unnoticeable, when your computer starts. Depending on your operating system, the method for disabling these programs is different, but it is not hard to figure out. Disable the programs that are not necessary and this will greatly improve your computer's efficiency. Hope this helps!

Micrsoft Word 2007 stops responding when I try to open a word document. Excel sometimes does this as well; it just freezes up, unuseable. Any suggestions?

Looks like maybe too many programs working in the background causing limited memory for the computer. Install CCleaner (freeware), go to startup and disable some non essential programs.
Maybe clear some junk from your pc. Use Dustbuster (freeware) and u will clear a lot of space in your pc. But u need to let this program to run a while.
U also can uninstall some programs that u don't use or unimportant to make your computer more powerful to run program in your computer.
Good luck.
