    This didn't work: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/99a95df6-04e6-46eb-bb65-6404cd215e641033.mspx

    "Use an older program with this version of Windows" Can't find anything like this to click.

    This didn't work either: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555917

    "On the Do you want to get the latest online content when you search help? notification window, click Yes button."

    No such notification window for me.
    1. <LI>Click Start, and in the Start Search box, type
      %systemroot%\System32\mshta.exe res://acprgwiz.dll/compatmode.hta
      <LI>Then the Program Compatibility Wizard starts.
      </LI>

    Didn't work either.
