There are a few reasons why a program will not install. I will try to help you resolve each.
1. Lack of privileges. Do you have local Administrator rights to install software? If not, can you login as the local Administrator to install the software?
2. Do you have the minimum Operating System requirements for the software? If you are running an old Operating System (Windows 95/98/2000/ME) then many new software programs will not install. If you are running at least WIndows XP or Vista, then you may need to install the latest service pack depending how new your utility software is.
3. On the flip side the Utility software may be too "old" for the Operating System! If this is possible, look on the web for a new version that is supported by your Operating System.
4. Do you have the minimum Hardware requirements? Do you have the minimum Memory/Disk Space for the software to install/operate?
5. Expired software. Is this software a time limited evaluation that is now expired? If so, this should be apparent when you attempt the install.

Use the above ideas to find the reason/solution to the problem you are having. :-)

Hi i have an etower 500is desktop pc i am working on. i have successfully upgraded the ram to 500mb and the harddrive to 40gb. i would like to know if there is a video card that will work well with this...

There are 3 requirements for a video card for that computer:

1...An available PCI slot. The best I could tell from the specs for that computer is that it has 3 PCI slots and two of them are probably occupied with a sound card and a modem or possibly a network card.
2...A PCI video card, the smaller the better since the computer case is a minitower.
3...A video card that is compatible with (has the drivers for) Windows 98. I did a quick search for one that supports Windows 98 and all I could find was either sold out or no longer available. Good luck finding one. Maybe eBay.

No offense, but that computer is really old. You'd be better served buying a new computer. Computers, such as this are only $300:

Etower 667

Nearly all computers made in recent years use a CR2032 battery. You can pop the old one out to make sure, but if it's about the size of a quarter this is probably it.
