How do I install saved data from a CD back into a program?

How do I install saved data from a CD back into a program?

Can anyone help me?
Viruses hit my computer and the outcome was I had to do a destructive recovery. But I saved the data from my FrontPage pgm to a CD, however, I don't know how to re-install from the CD into the pgm. So I can't add or change on my Freepages site now.

The person who helped me create my site has retired so I need a little help. Thanks much.

Dear Jean,
Repent for ye have sinned by copying your data to a CD complete with any virus in all likelihood, and scan your CD with an antivirus before using the data.
And ye shall be saved a lot of formating bother by publishing your site back from the server to your machine assuming that the server is not infected as well.
Sincerely,
Mr. David Oltmann

If you are looking for "publishing" data, the server address you will enter in Front Page is

ftp://users.freepages.rootsweb.com/xxxx_html/

where xxxx is the name of the community where you want your upload to appear, e.g. genealogy_html

You can request your password from PasswordCentral

Thanks so much for replying. Turned out the only thing that was infected was my Email. My computer told me that my Front Page and FTPWorks pgms were virus free, so I copied their data to a CD...but printed-out my Emails I wanted to save. Techs from McAfee, HP and Juno helped me get thru all of this since it had to do with them also. But none of them help with re-installing from a CD back to these 2 pgms.
I looked on MicroSoft's site but could not find anything about FrontPage to help me either...same for the other. I checked everything after re-installing WindowsXP, have new Virus pgm etc. Everything is working great except I do not know how to add back the data to these pgms which are the only way I can maintain and update my freepages. I don't have any idea on earth how to go about publishing my freepages back to my computer....I didn't know such could be done.

Pat, thanks so much for the information. However, I can't get the Users/freepages address which you sent, to open.
Nevertheless, I'm terrible at understanding instruction sheets so I may not know how to perform the maneuvers unless they are really simple. What's simple to most Users are not to me. I have copies of the Passwords and everything used to create my pages...but I've never had to use them and there is nothing there about publishing my genealogy site back to my computer if a problem arose. This sounds really complicated to me.

Would you Email me privately? This is looking more simple now. Thanks.
