I aint got much hair left................its doing my head in.......

I recently bought a JVC HDD Camcorder and the software that came with it is as follows.....Power DVD 5NE, Power Director Express NE and Power Producer 3 NE, when I load the disc into my PC and install the software everything but Power Director seems to load....I go into C/Program files/Cyberlink and Power Director is there in its own folder but when I got to Start/Programs it does not appear anywhere, I was wondering if there was a conflict with the program on some machines that you may know about could you let me know please.....

I also have Nero7 Reloaded on my machine, I spent hours the other day putting together a some video clips slidesows etc.....there was just enough space left on an 8.5GB disc to burn my project, towards the end of the burn I was told that the burn process failed and it gave me a log file, I tried it again and the same thing happened....Knightmare.......

I would love some answers to the above questions, all i want to do is make slideshows and put video files together, I'm gonna have a look at some Adobe software I think but would love to get to the bottom of the issues above.......
