Older version problem



I am a student and want to use a Version of SolidWorks 2001 Plus.
It loads onto my computer but my problem is this!
I can make any type of solid object square, rectangle, round, ect. When I sketch on the object and want to dimension or make a change to the sketch all the lines disappear except for the one I want to change. I can move my cursor to find the next line but the previous lines disappears when my cursor is passed over the next line witch is then highlighted and can be changed. The only line visible is the one my cursor is over.It acts like a layers turning off and on. Is there something wrong with the software or is there a setting somewhere that need to be changed?
Does this make sense to anyone out there?
It is driving me nuts!!!!
