I have been given these instructions to lad a CD onto my computer
"Go to MY Computer, then to your DC drive and click onto the disk content, you need to load SET UP to install the program on to your PC. It should work oKay."
I have no idea what it means? I never go near these things as im hopeless. I clicked on my Computer but could not find the Disk content?
I know im thick:Smiliz_Kingz_PDT_13 Can anyone help me please.

Go to your desktop - locate you My Computer icon.
Find your CD drive letter - double click. If this does not autorun then locate the file setup.*** (where *** could be exe/bat). Double click on that, and it should start the installation process. :PDT11

It does not auto run. I have no idea how to locate the file set up, no idea what exe/bat is?

Once in to your My Computer - go to your CD drive icon and 'double click' opening all the contents. Here you will see a load of files in the main directory. There will be a file called something like setup.exe or setup.bat - click on this fine and it should run.

Could also be called 'Install' or 'something.msi'.

It looks like the disc is naffed, im having a new one sent to me. Will let you know if it works.
I must have something set wrong on my computer, Internet explorer keeps stopping me downloading some files, and converts them to ASPX files, so i cant read them?

If you are right clicking to 'save as' in Explorer, it means that you are being redirected to another page which hosts the downloads, and thats the page that initiates the file to start downloading.. aspx is just a format web pages are written in.
Try clicking on the link first then see where it goes, there will likely be another link there that says 'not working? click here to download again', where you can right click to save as...
