If you haven't moved any files or opened any with another program, then maybe something wasn't quite finished writing to a file when you shut down or started something else.
If you have a recent backup, restoring that should fix the problem. If the recent backup was made as you shut down last time, it could possibly be in the same fix.

In any case, it shouldn't have any effect on the data if you use the control panel add/remove program thingie.
_Of course if you go in with Windows explorer and start deleting things, you could delete some data files by accident.
Each Family Origins database consists of 35 files in one database, if any one of these files is missing or altered, the database won't work properly, if at all.
-- It May be that Bruce will chime in here, He is probable one of the few people that can tell you what a codebase error -970 actually is.
In Family Origins' Options menu, if you select Program options and then the General tab. There you can mark the line "Ask for backup when exiting." If you let this go to the hard drive, it only takes a few seconds to create a backup every time you close down. One of these should be saved to removable media once in a while, just in case the whole hard drive gives up.
