MORE HELP ON OPERATING SYSTEM ISSUES:

 

For downloads, you might need to turn off "SmartScreen Filter".
On windows 7, if using Internet Explorer, select "Safety" on the menus bar, -SmartScreen, and turn it off. "In-Private Browsing" is ok to leave on.
On Windows 10, from the start button, select all programs, -windows system, -control panel, -Security and Maintenence, and then turn off "SmartScreen". (Set UAC while there, see below)

 During install you may need to lower the "User Account Control" (UAC) to the "prompt for permission" setting. 
On WIndows 7, from the Start button, -control panel, -User accounts, account settings, -change User Account Settings. Set the slider to the 2nd level from bottom.
On WIndows 10, while in "Security and Maintenence" (see above), on the left select "change USer Account control Settings", and set the slider to the 2nd level from bottom.

WIFi settings may need adjusting if using that PC feature.
On Windows 10, at the bottom of your wireless connections list from the taskbar icon, select settings, -manage Wi-fi settings, and turn both "Wi-Fi Sense" options to OFF.

Winzip may be gone.
If your computer won't open the Zip File, you may need to install/repair a copy of "Winzip" if the zipfile won't open. This feature is standard with Windows 7 and up, but could have been deleted at some point. If you need Win-Zip, Click here for a copy

A few newer versions of Excel are 64-bit. 
We advise simply trying the 32-bit version first. Your pc's decision to use either 32 or 64 bit OTC will be based on whether your Excel is truly 64-bit (not on whether your version of Windows is 64-bit). 

Microsoft office not valid.
Install failure can be caused by an installed, but not "activated" version of Microsoft Office on a new PC. This means you have not PAID for Office yet. You may not even see an error box on this. 

Determine which version of windows you have for some assistance using the appropriate section below. If you don't know that, please have someone else proceed from here, you should not be attempting this.
