sure to exit Windows before you install the update.

If you are using Compaq DOS 3.31: please call Customer Service
for a set of replacement disks at 800-441-7234.

To install the update, you will need to know the drive and
directory on your system where NDW is installed and also the
drive and directory where Windows is installed. FROM THE DOS
PROMPT, insert the diskette into the appropriate drive, change
directory to that drive, and from the A: (or B:) prompt type:


You will see the message "Patching Norton Desktop for Windows"
on your screen, and you will notice your hard drive being
accessed as NDW is updated. Please be patient, the patch may
take up to 30 minutes to run! During this time, you will not
see any additional activity on your screen other than a blinking
cursor. When the update is complete, you will be returned to a
DOS prompt.

If you have any questions or encounter any problems, please do
not hesitate to contact the Technical Support department at
