Have you considered using...

either "My Computer" or Windows Explorer to look at the contents of the CD to locate the file to double click?

All you have to do is browse the CD.

Alternatively you could open your web browser then click on the File menu then select Open. Now select to BROWSE then select your CD (The E drive) and locate Start.html and double click it then click OK.

Yet another option would be to click on your Start button and select Run then in the Run dialog window type E:\start.html (if you are positive that is the correct name for the file) then click the OK button.

if this is the one you are talking about

you will notice at the top of the page linked to above two links, one labeled View Cart and the other labeled Help.

If you click the help link you should be able to get your question to someone with knowledge of the CDs.

I do know that you MUST have Shockwave installed and you can get it at this link (or at the link provided on the page linked to above where it says "View System Requirements"):

Personally I would make sure I had Shockwave installed then I would browse the CD and open some of the html files in the browser to figure it out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
