Question

Program won't run

by shirleystorer / May 28, 2012 11:56 AM PDT

Hello. I downloaded Speed It Up Free and it installed w/o a hitch. Moments later, I downloaded RentASoft Image Converter, and it downloaded just fine, but would'nt run.
I got the window that says, "run " or "save" and I chose "run" and nothing has happened. What gives??

With so little information it is difficult to say.

Try downloading again.

That's strange. You have to choose "run" or "save" before the downloading starts. But you say you downloaded it just fine before you get that choice.

Now try save (to save it on your hard disk) and then run the downloaded program from My Computer or Windows Explorer. What happens?
