Hi veneciangold,

Welcome to Microsoft Answers!


Please try to uninstall and re-install the program again to resolve the issue.


You can use Programs and Features to uninstall programs or to change the program's configuration by adding or removing certain options.


1.    Open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features.

2.    Select a program, and then click Uninstall. Some programs include the option to change or repair the program in addition to uninstalling it. but many simply offer the option to uninstall. To change a program, click Change or Repair. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
