Lost connection between icon & program

Suddenly I am no longer able to access my WordPerfect 6.0 program. I
click on the icon, on the desktop, but all I get is the WordPerfect
opening page flash on for a split second, then it vanishes & I' m back
to the desktop. I try to open WordPerfect in other ways but the
results is the same. I don't have this program with any other program.
What has happened? How can I regain access to my program.

I would ask Corel..
Since you are not having this trouble with any other program.

You could re-install it.

Thanks but my prog is by Novell not Corel & Novell offers tech support
only to businesses & professionals, not home users.

I put off re-installing because I want to know WHY this is happening so
I won't have to re-install again & again.

I tried re-installing this morning but got the error message "Cannot
find installing instructions." I entered setup.exe according to
instruction but got the error message "That path cannot be found."

This computer REALLY hates me.

OK, peeps, never mind. I did a system restore & got it back. I still
would like to know how this happened in the first place so I can
prevent it from happening again.

Did I mention that my computer really hates me? -- REALLY REALLY HATE
ME! Just one day after my last posting it started all over again. And
Corel doesn't give out free tech support. I have to pay for it. Oh
well! I've got WP on another PC & will just have to switch whenever I
need to use it.
