I have a strange problem. Since my hard drive crashed 2 weeks ago, I have
had to reinstall some programs. I get the above programs to work, even
after running the CD NUM, rebuilding the hard drive, and running Disk
First Aid. I have a 6500 mac with System 8.1. What do I do? I also had my Dropstuff trashed, as well as Stuffit expander and Deluxe.

Did you re-format the hard drive or just re-install everything?  There could still be some corruption with the disk.  Were the Norton utilities functioning before?  Is the disk HFS or HFS+?

I reformatted the drive to system 8.1, Norton Utilities worked before (and I can run it from the CD), and the disk is HFS. Would changing to HFS+ fix the problem? How about upgrading to system 8.5? Thanks. jackstroh@usa.net

Please define "can't install" what kind of error do you get. Can you install when you start up from the CD?

I can install these programs, but when I try to use them after restarting, I get a bunch of letters in the menu part of the screen and the program (Stuffit, Norton antivirus, norton utilities) closes.

Reformat the hard drive and reinstall the system.
Make sure you also update the driver
Install one of the non working programs
Test the program and keep doing this until everything is installed.
It seems to me your system is damaged.
