Question about The Learning Company Computers & Internet
Unfortunately, there are totally different files, and drivers, for Windows 98 than there are for Windows 7. And there's also the 32 bit issue. Most of the time, unless by a miracle, you're not going to get the older programs to run correctly, if at all (missing files, different files and names). Your bet bet is to try to exchange the program for an up-dated version written for Windows 7. If that's not possible, you'll either have to run it on an older computer, or buy the latest program. I don't have Windows 7 yet, but I've heard a lot of complaints similar to yours. Unless you can go into the programs folder, then pick an earlier "compatibility mode", there's no possibility for it running, and slim to none, even using the "compatibility mode". Sorry, but it's probably not going to work.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
If after the check disk utility you are still having problems then you might have to reinstall your operating system.
