Interesting... it looks like your friend might have a virus. These are general symptons of a virus. I don't think it has anything to do with JAWS. -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of tony Sent: Sunday, December 21, 2003 5:49 AM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: problem installing jfw5.0 Hi guys, I have a friend who has a computer running Windows ME. She downloaded jfw 5.0 from the Freedom scientific website and tried to install it. Well, she double-clicked the icon on the desktop, saw an hour glass and heard the computer rumbling. Here comes the good part. She then saw all of her desktop icons disappear, all except the system files. The computer stopped rumbling, the icons were gone so she rebooted. She the got a message saying, invalid system disk, try another and hit any key to continue. Well, there was no disk in the floppy drive or in the cdrom drive, so she tried to reboot again and got the same thing. Windows will not start. Has anyone ever had this problem with a downloaded version of jfw? If anyone can help with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
