HP Record Now problems... how do I reinstall?

I'm a home PC user running a HP Pavilion 760n. I have a CD writer and a DVD drive. I recently tried to burn a CD, and when I opened HP Record Now, I got a pop up message saying "Missing resource files" and it wouldn't open. I tried using MusicMatch Jukebox 10 to burn it, and it kept coming up with unknown errors. Is there something wrong with my CD Writer? How can I reinstall Record Now? I've found numerous articles on uninstalling it, but I definitely don't want to do that, and I am not interested in buying a new burning program. Can anyone help me?

Don't reinstall. With XP all you have to do is use System Restore to go back to a time when it worked:

Start,All Programs,HP Tools,Application Recovery will reinstall it.

There also is an update for RecordNow on the software pages for your model.

If the RecordNow is not listed in your programs the install should work. I just checked my own version and it is 3.5. Also readthe following about using the CD-RW.
I would think uour version of CD Writer is probably current, However older versions required new software when Ms XP was installed.

Re: HP Record Now problems... how do I reinstall?

Thank you for all of your help... I'm scared of system restore. The last time I ran it, all of my pictures got deleted, and I could never get them back. So I'd really rather not use restore. Thanks a lot though! I'm going to try the update and see how that goes.

Re: HP Record Now problems... how do I reinstall?

SYSTEM RESTORE is the greatest.
Someone else may able to confirm this following.
I have tried setting a restore point before a download and then had the Restore Point fail. I believe whether it is right or not that in order to set the restore point my computer has to be restarted. If this is true, I should set a restore point, restart computer, then do my questionable download, or whatever doubtful task I am about to try.

Really System restore has saved me many times.
good luck

Re-installing RecordNow via Start,All Programs,Application Recovery is not a system restore.It will merely re-install RecordNow for you.It will not change anything else on your machine.
I have used it many times on pcs here and others.
