I have a Compaq Presario S5000J desktop, I purchased from Compaq\nDirect in September of 2003.\n\nIs anyone aware of a way to recover applications (Specifically\nNorton AntiVirus 2003 and Sonic RecordNow) other than a complete\nrestore of the system? I have checked the Application Recovery\nTool and they are not listed there. Thay are working fine now,\nbut I am am considering changes which could effect them.\n\nI am considering the purchase of Norton AntiVirus 2005 the next\ntime my subscription comes up for renewal. If something goes\nwrong with that installation, I would like to be able to roll\nback to the 2003 version. I am not crazy about doing this\nupdate, but there were a lot of support disclaimers when we\nrenewed the subscription on my wife'e S3010CL a few days ago.\nMine expires in December. Also, the complete 2005 is slighlty\ncheaper (at Sam's Club) than the subscription, although the\ndifference isn't enough to justify any significant issues that\nmay result from a change.\n\nI also am considering a new LG GSA-4163B DVD/CD Reader/Writer.\nIt comes with Nero, which I understand will strongly suggest, if\nnot require, that Sonic RecorNow be uninstalled. Again, I would\nlike to be able to roll back, if something goes wrong.\n\nAny assistance or advice would be appreciated.
