2.      LICENSES

        2.1    Grants by CyberMedia.

               (a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, CyberMedia grants
Phoenix a non-transferable, worldwide, royalty-bearing license for the Term and
any period after the Term during which Phoenix has rights to continue to
distribute CyberMedia Products (with right to sublicense as described below) to
use, perform and display the CyberMedia Products internally and externally, in
Object Code only, for purposes of demonstration, marketing and customization for
customers, and to copy such products and have the same copied as necessary for
such use and for sublicensing as provided below, and to market, sublicense and
distribute such products solely through OEMs and Other Manufacturers as follows:
Phoenix may grant sublicenses to such OEMs and Other Manufacturers to copy, have
copied and use the CyberMedia Products, in Object Code format only, for
demonstration and marketing purposes, to incorporate or bundle such products
with PC Computers or PC Peripherals, and to distribute and sublicense such
incorporated or bundled products to end users and to other OEMs. Phoenix may


                                       -3-

exercise its distribution rights through the use of Subdistributors, provided
that such Subdistributors distribute CyberMedia Products only to OEMs and Other
Manufacturers in the manner required of Phoenix hereunder, and agree in writing
with Phoenix to be bound by licensing and confidentiality conditions at least as
restrictive as those in this Agreement that are applicable to Phoenix hereunder.
The licenses granted Phoenix and its Subdistributors hereunder expressly exclude
any right to distribute the CyberMedia Products on a standalone basis to any end
user. Any sublicense rights granted by Phoenix to an OEM or Other Manufacturer
will not restrict the OEM's or Other Manufacturer's ability to sublicense the
CyberMedia Products in the manner described above to its end users or OEM
customers anywhere in the world, except as required by law.

               (b) Subject the terns of this Agreement, CyberMedia grants
Phoenix a non-transferable, worldwide, royalty-bearing license for the Term and
any period after the Term during which Phoenix has rights to continue to
distribute CyberMedia Products (with right to sublicense as described below) to
use, perform and display the Customization Tools, in Object Code only, for
internal business purposes only, to customize the CyberMedia Products for an OEM
or manufacturer of PC-based devices other than PC Computers. Phoenix may
sublicense such rights to an OEM or any such manufacturer pursuant to a written
agreement with such third party that it will be bound by licensing and
confidentiality conditions at least as restrictive as those in this Agreement
that are applicable to Phoenix hereunder. Phoenix and such third party
sublicensees may make a reasonable number of copies of such software as is
required for back-up purposes and to carry out the customization work permitted
hereunder. Phoenix may distribute such Customization Tools only to such third
party licensees, and such licensees may not further distribute the Customization
Tools. The Customization Tools are licensed to Phoenix pursuant to CyberMedia's
standard limited warranty in effect for such tools from time to time, a copy of
which may be obtained from CyberMedia upon request.

               (c) The above license rights shall be non-exclusive, except that
Phoenix shall have the exclusive right to distribute through, and to sublicense
to, OEMs the CyberMedia Products so long as the number of copies of CyberMedia
Products reported as shipped in royalty reports issued by Phoenix pursuant to
Section 4.1 is equal to or greater than the minimum number of copies for the
applicable Year stated in Section 2.3(a) below. If such number falls below such
minimum, then CyberMedia may elect to convert the exclusive rights described in
this paragraph into non-exclusive rights, on the terms and conditions stated in
Section 2.3(a), and if converted, such rights shall continue as non-exclusive so
long as this Agreement is in effect and as to any distribution permitted
thereafter pursuant to Section 13.

               (d) So long as the right to distribute CyberMedia Products to or
through OEMs granted Phoenix pursuant to Section 2.1(c) above remains exclusive
and for the Year during the Term in which CyberMedia properly elects to make
such right nonexclusive (the "Election Year"): (i) CyberMedia agrees that it
will not grant to any entity which develops or supplies BIOS software products
on a commercial basis to OEMs, which entities presently are comprised of Award
Software, American Megatrends Inc., SystemSoft Corporation, the SurePath BIOS
group of IBM Corporation, and Microid Research, any license to distribute any
CyberMedia Products; and (ii) Phoenix agrees that it will not develop or market
(including any distribution) any product which directly competes with CyberMedia
Products; provided, however, that during the Election Year, Phoenix shall not be
prohibited from developing any product which may directly compete with any
CyberMedia Product. If a prospective


                                       -4-

OEM for CyberMedia Products has stated to Phoenix and CyberMedia that it will
not sublicense CyberMedia Products from Phoenix, the Parties will promptly meet
to discuss how to resolve the matter. If Phoenix agrees with an OEM that Phoenix
will not grant any other named OEM with a sublicense for CyberMedia Products,
then CyberMedia may enter into negotiations with such other named OEM for a
license of the CyberMedia Products.

               (e) Commencing with the Effective Date, Phoenix will use all
commercially reasonable efforts to promote CyberMedia Products and the Parties
will use all commercially reasonable efforts to promote the relationship
established between the Parties hereunder, including the fact that Phoenix is
the exclusive distributor of CyberMedia Products to OEMs. For CyberMedia, such
efforts will include, without limitation, making joint sales calls with Phoenix
at Phoenix's request and advising Prospects regularly that it has appointed
Phoenix as its authorized exclusive distributor of CyberMedia Products to OEMs.
CyberMedia will use commercially reasonable efforts to convince Prospects to
sign license agreements for CyberMedia Products directly with Phoenix and to
convince each CyberMedia Customer either (i) to cancel its existing license
agreement for CyberMedia Products and to enter into a new agreement whereby the
CyberMedia Customer becomes an sublicensee of Phoenix for the CyberMedia
Products or (ii) if acceptable to Phoenix, to consent to the assignment of such
existing license agreement from CyberMedia to Phoenix. If during the Transition
Period and after the expenditure of all such efforts, a Prospect has stated that
it is unwilling to enter into an agreement with Phoenix for the CyberMedia
Products, but is willing to enter into an agreement with CyberMedia, CyberMedia
may do so provided such contract is signed by both parties on or before the end
of the Transition Period. After the end of Transition Period and so long as the
rights granted Phoenix remain exclusive in accordance with Section 2.1(c),
CyberMedia will have no right to sign any license agreement with OEMs for
CyberMedia Products, whether or not they were Prospects, except, if after the
Transition Period and after the expenditure of all such efforts, an OEM has
stated in writing to Phoenix or CyberMedia that it is unwilling to enter into an
agreement with Phoenix for the CyberMedia Products, but is willing to enter into
an agreement with CyberMedia, the Parties agree to discuss strategies for
resolving the situation.

               (f) Any end user sublicense to use the CyberMedia Products and
the Customization Tools will be pursuant to a license agreement (including a
shrink wrap license agreement) containing terms no less restrictive than the
Minimum License Terms set forth in Exhibit B.

               (g) CyberMedia does not grant to Phoenix any rights with respect
to the Source Code to the CyberMedia Products or the Customization Tools
hereunder and Phoenix agrees not to reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble
the Object Code to any of the CyberMedia Products or the Customization Tools.

               (h) CyberMedia may place legitimate copyright notices in and on
the CyberMedia Products and the Customization Tools and on any documentation (or
such other place as CyberMedia and Phoenix may agree in writing) delivered to
Phoenix hereunder. Phoenix agrees that it will not remove any such copyright
notice from within the Object Code of any CyberMedia Product and the
Customization Tools.


                                       -5-

               (i) As between CyberMedia and Phoenix, CyberMedia will own the
CyberMedia Products, the Customization Tools, any other software CyberMedia
provides Phoenix hereunder and the customized versions of CyberMedia Products
created by Phoenix with the Customization Tools. CyberMedia may sell, license or
otherwise distribute any customized version of CyberMedia Products unless
explicitly prohibited by the OEM for whom the customized version was created.
CyberMedia may not sell, license or otherwise distribute any translations
created by Phoenix except as provided herein.

        2.2 Delivery of CyberMedia Products and Customization Tools. CyberMedia
will deliver to Phoenix one copy of the Object Code for the CyberMedia Products
and of upgrades, updates, enhancements, fixes and future releases and versions
as quickly as possible but within ten (10) working days (a) when shipped as a
production release to a customer and (b) when released internally for pre-
release use in beta release form. All such items will be delivered in electronic
form and, if requested by the receiving party, in hard copy form. CyberMedia
will deliver to Phoenix one copy of the Object Code for the Customization Tools
promptly after they are first available to CyberMedia engineers.

        2.3 Obligations to Retain Exclusivity. In order to retain the exclusive
rights granted it pursuant to Section 2.1(a) above:

               (a) Phoenix must have reported shipments by Phoenix or
Subdistributors to OEMs or by OEMs of a minimum number of copies of CyberMedia
Products each Year. For purposes of the foregoing, a copy of a CyberMedia
Product may be counted as shipped only once. The minimum number of copies will
be six million for the period commencing with the Effective Date and ending
December 31, 1997, it being understood that Phoenix's ability to reach such
number may be adversely affected if CyberMedia enters into license agreements
with Prospects during the Transition Period which are not subsequently and
quickly assigned to Phoenix. The Parties will negotiate in good faith the
minimum number of copies for each Year after 1997 no later than September 30
immediately preceding such Year. The determination of whether or not such
minimum number of copies has been achieved will be based on the shipments
reported in the royalty reports issued by Phoenix to CyberMedia pursuant to
Article 4 hereof. CyberMedia acknowledges that the relevant royalty reports
shall be those which are required to be made in the second, third and fourth
quarters of the Year being measured and in the first quarter of the following
Year. Such reports are subject to verification by CyberMedia pursuant to the
exercise of its audit rights granted in Article 5 hereof

        If such minimum copies have not been shipped during the Year being
reviewed (or, with respect to the Year 1997, if Phoenix has failed to make
payment of all of the amounts set forth in Section 2.3(b) below), then
CyberMedia may elect to convert the exclusive rights granted Phoenix under
Section 2.1(a) hereof into non-exclusive rights. Such election must be made in
writing delivered to Phoenix within 30 days after Phoenix gives the final
royalty report for the Year being measured.

               (b) In addition, Phoenix will have paid CyberMedia the following
amounts on or before the dates indicated:


                                       -6-



PAYMENT DUE DATE                    AMOUNT DUE
- ----------------                    ----------
                                 
Effective Date                       
January 15, 1997                     
April 15, 1997                        [ * ]
July 15, 1997                        
October 15, 1997                     



Payments of these amounts are not refundable. Phoenix may not credit the
[ * ] payment due on the Effective Date against any payment obligation it may
have to CyberMedia under Section 4.1 hereof. Phoenix may credit all other
amounts set forth in this Section 2.3(b) against any payment obligation it may
have to CyberMedia under Section 4.1 hereof.

               (c) The failure of Phoenix to meet the applicable minimum
shipments shall not be deemed a breach by Phoenix of any material obligation
hereunder and shall not give CyberMedia the right to terminate this Agreement or
any other right of Phoenix, except as otherwise set forth herein.

3.      DISTRIBUTION OBLIGATIONS OF PHOENIX

        3.1 Phoenix will use all reasonable diligent, good faith commercial
efforts to market and sublicense, directly or through Subdistributors, the
CyberMedia Products to OEMs.

        3.2 (a) Phoenix will have the right to determine in its sole discretion,
the pricing it offers Subdistributors, OEMs and Other Manufacturers for
CyberMedia Products; provided, however, that from the Effective Date through
December 31, 1997, the minimum license fee Phoenix will pay CyberMedia for each
copy of a CyberMedia Product shipped by the OEMs, Other Manufacturers or
Subdistributors will be [ * ], unless otherwise agreed by the parties; and
provided, further, that Phoenix and CyberMedia will negotiate in good faith any
suggested change to such minimum price with respect to any subsequent Year
during the same period during which they are negotiating the minimum shipment
targets pursuant to Section 2.3(a) above.

            (b) Phoenix may from time to time wish to bundle CyberMedia Products
with other Phoenix products in order to effect a sublicense of CyberMedia
Products to an OEM or Other Manufacturer. Phoenix will propose to CyberMedia an
allocation of the sublicense fees among the components of the bundled product
(including the rationale therefor) and CyberMedia will advise Phoenix as
promptly as practicable (but in no event in more than three working days) as to
whether or not it agrees with such allocation, which agreement will not be
unreasonably withheld. If CyberMedia doesn't agree with the allocation, the
parties will meet within one day thereafter to negotiate in good faith a
mutually acceptable allocation.

            (c) Unless otherwise agreed, Phoenix will not significantly increase
the pricing of Phoenix products over that previously offered by it to an OEM or
Other Manufacturer while at or about

        3.5 Phoenix will attend such of CyberMedia' s technical training courses
as it determines and will send technically qualified personnel to such courses.

        3.6 Phoenix agrees (and agrees to include in its agreements with
Subdistributors the obligation of a Subdistributor): (a) to conduct its efforts

unethical practices, including but not limited to disparagement of the
CyberMedia Products; (c) to make no representations, warranties or guarantees to
OEMs or Subdistributors with respect to the specifications, features or
capabilities of the CyberMedia Products that are inconsistent with the
literature and other documentation provided by CyberMedia, or developed jointly
by the Parties, including all warranties and disclaimers.

        3.7 The Parties acknowledge that they have a goal of achieving a public
image of joint cooperation and support of CyberMedia Products that will
consistently position the Parties' respective roles and contributions under this
Agreement. Toward that end, the parties will develop joint marketing and
promotional programs hereunder, which would include joint customer presentations
where appropriate, joint attendance at appropriate industry events, the
preparation of consistent marketing collateral and the issuance of appropriate
joint press releases. With respect to press releases, the Parties agree that
each will include a mutually agreeable reference to the other in press releases
and promotions relating to CyberMedia Products and, to the extent any such press
release relates to or involves a third party CyberMedia and Phoenix will use all
reasonable efforts to obtain such third party's consent to the issuance of such
press release. The parties will mutually agree on all sales and marketing
materials, press releases and other promotional materials relating to CyberMedia
Products.

        3.8 Phoenix will use commercially diligent efforts to require its OEM
and Other Manufacturer sublicensees of CyberMedia Products to provide their
Knowledge Base, customizations and relevant end user information to Phoenix and
to CyberMedia. Phoenix will provide CyberMedia with copies of any such
information which the OEM agrees may be provided to CyberMedia.


                                       -8-

4.      PAYMENTS.

        4.1 Phoenix will pay CyberMedia the following percentages of the license
fees, net of any amounts Phoenix is required to pay others as defined in this
Agreement, actually received by Phoenix from OEMs, Other Manufacturers and
Subdistributors for Object Code licenses of any CyberMedia Product: with respect
to the first [ * ] of such license fees, the percentage will be [ * ] [ * ] and
with respect to license fees after the first $ 1,000,000, the percentage will be

the Transition Period as contemplated by Section 2.1(e), CyberMedia will pay
Phoenix [ * ] of any license fees, net of any amounts CyberMedia is required to
pay others as defined in this Agreement, actually received by CyberMedia from
such Prospect; provided such Prospect is a Phoenix Customer as of the Effective
Date and provided that CyberMedia is the primary source of support to the
Prospect. CyberMedia will not owe Phoenix any portion of any license fees
CyberMedia collects from Prospects with whom it enters into a license agreement
for CyberMedia Products during the Transition Period if the Prospect is not a
Phoenix Customer as of the Effective Date. CyberMedia will pay Phoenix [ * ] of
license fees, net of any amounts it is required to pay others as defined in this
Agreement actually received by CyberMedia from any such Prospect if the Parties
agree, following good faith negotiations, that Phoenix is required to provide
significant support to such Prospect with respect to CyberMedia Products.

        4.3 A Party will be entitled to deduct from license fees received by it
any sales, use, value-added, withholding or other tax or duty levied with
respect to such license fee, except and to the extent such tax is imposed by a
foreign entity and the Party is able to credit such tax in full against its U.S.
federal income taxes or commissions it may be required to pay to a third party
sales agent.

        4.4 As a condition to entering into a sublicense agreement with Phoenix
for CyberMedia Products, an OEM or Other Manufacturer may request a program
whereby CyberMedia passes through to the OEM or Other Manufacturer and to
Phoenix a portion of license fees paid by an end user for upgrading a CyberMedia
Product. Provided the purchase of such upgrade will occur as a direct result of
actions taken by the OEM or Other Manufacturer, CyberMedia agrees to consider in
good faith any request from Phoenix for such a pass through but may withhold its
consent to such pass through in CyberMedia's sole discretion. The Parties will
use all commercial, efforts to develop a reasonable mechanism to determine
whether or not the purchase of the upgrade is the direct result of actions taken
by the OEM or Other Manufacturer. Payment of any fees which may be due under
this Section 4.4 from CyberMedia shall be made within 30 days after the end of
the quarter in which such license fees were received.

        4.5 CyberMedia will invoice Phoenix, and Phoenix will pay net 30, any

                                       -9-

        4.6 CyberMedia may choose to add third party software to CyberMedia
Products after the Effective Date for the purpose of adding features or
functionality and will keep Phoenix informed of any plans to so add third party
software. If the third party requires CyberMedia to pay a royalty with respect
to each copy of the software shipped (the "Third Party Royalty"), CyberMedia
will inform Phoenix as soon as practicable of the amount of such royalty and
Phoenix will have the following options:

               (a) Phoenix will pay CyberMedia the Third Party Royalty with
respect to shipments of CyberMedia Products containing such third party software
for which an OEM, Subdistributor, or Other Manufacturer pays Phoenix license
fees. For purposes of Section 4.1, the Third Party Royalty will be subtracted
from the actual receipts before the percentage is applied;

               (b) Phoenix may enter into an agreement directly with the third
party with respect to the payment of the Third Party Royalty, in which event,
for purposes of Section 4.1, the Third Party Royalty will be subtracted from the
actual receipts before the applicable percentage is applied; or

               (c) Phoenix may elect to take the CyberMedia Products without
such third party software and will have no liability to CyberMedia for any Third
Party Royalty relating to such software.

For purposes of Section 4.2, if CyberMedia receives license fees from any
Prospect referred to in Section 4.2 for CyberMedia Products which include third
party software for which CyberMedia owes a Third Party Royalty, such Third Party
Royalty will be deducted from such fees before the percentage is applied.

5.      REPORTS AND AUDITS

        5.1 For at least two (2) years following payment of any amount owed the
other party hereunder, each party will maintain any records it may have with
respect to such payment, which shall include, without limitation, records
showing the number of units of CyberMedia Products to which such payment relates
and records received from any OEM, Other Manufacturer or Subdistributor.

        5.2 A party may, at its own expense and upon at least five (5) working
days' notice to the other party, cause an audit to be performed by an
independent auditor (acceptable to both parties) of the records of the other
party described in Section 6.1 above. The audit shall be for the purpose of
confirming the accuracy of the payment of fees and royalties or other charges in
accordance with this Agreement. The auditor will report to the party requesting
the audit only such information obtained during the course of such audit as is
necessary to determine whether the payments made hereunder were correct. No
party may cause any audit to be conducted more frequently than once in any Year,
outside normal business hours, or at a location other than where the audited
party's records being audited are maintained. If any such audit discloses an
error in payment by a party of amounts owed the other party in an amount greater
than five percent (5%) of the total amounts owed for the period audited, the
audited party will also reimburse the auditing party for all expenses (including
the fees and expenses incurred by the independent auditor) reasonably incurred
in connection with the audit.

6.      WARRANTIES

        6.1 Each party warrants and represents to the other that it has all
authority to enter into this Agreement and to perform its obligations hereunder.

        6.2 CyberMedia warrants and represents that it has all right, title, and
interest and/or license rights in the CyberMedia Products and the Customization
Tools necessary to grant the licenses set forth herein and that it has not taken
any action or suffered any action to be taken with respect to the CyberMedia
Products or the Customization Tools which would restrict or affect the rights of
Phoenix and its sublicensees hereunder. By way of example, and not by
limitation, CyberMedia has not heretofore granted any person any exclusive
distribution rights, whether geographically based or otherwise, which will limit
the license rights granted herein.

        6.3 CyberMedia represents and warrants that, to the best of its
knowledge, any software delivered by it to Phoenix hereunder will be free of any
harmful code, defined for purposes of this Agreement as any computer code,
programming instruction, or set of instructions which have been designed with
the ability to damage, interfere with, or otherwise adversely affect computer
programs, data files, or hardware, without the consent or intent of the end
user, including without limitation, self- replicating and self-propagating
programming instructions commonly referred to as viruses and worms.

        6.4 CyberMedia represents and warrants that each production release of
the CyberMedia Products will, for a period of twelve (12) months after the date
such release is first shipped by CyberMedia to Phoenix, perform substantially in
accordance with its respective Specifications. CyberMedia will, at its option
and its own expense, either (a) correct or provide an acceptable workaround for
any verifiable conditions reported to CyberMedia by Phoenix within the warranty
period that cause such product not to perform in accordance with the above
warranty or (b) replace such nonconforming product with a conforming product;
regardless of the option chosen by CyberMedia, it will perform this warranty
service within the time frames set forth in Exhibit D. If CyberMedia is unable
to correct or provide an acceptable workaround for any such error after
reasonable efforts, CyberMedia will refund to Phoenix any license fees
previously paid to CyberMedia for copies of the affected product for which
Phoenix certifies in a writing signed by an executive officer of Phoenix that it
will be making a refund to an affected OEM or Subdistributor. The foregoing
shall be CyberMedia's sole liability and Phoenix's sole remedy in the event of a
breach of the warranty contained in this Section 6.4.

        6.5 CYBERMEDIA MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WITH
RESPECT TO THE CYBERMEDIA PRODUCTS OTHER THAN THOSE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS
SECTIONS 6.2 THROUGH 6.4, INCLUSIVE, AND CYBERMEDIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

        6.6 Nothing herein shall diminish a party's support obligation to the
other as set forth elsewhere in this Agreement.


                                      -11-

7.      INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INDEMNITY

        7.1 CyberMedia agrees to defend Phoenix, its officers, employees,
agents, representatives, sublicensees, and/or customers (collectively, the
"Indemnified Party"), at CyberMedia's expense, against any claim, action or
proceeding brought against any Indemnified Party to the extent that it is based
on a claim that the use of the CyberMedia Products and/or the Customization
Tools, including software and related documentation, licensed or sublicensed to
the Indemnified Party hereunder, when used in accordance with the terms and
conditions of this Agreement, infringes any copyright or U.S. patent or
misappropriates any trade secret and agrees to pay any liabilities, damages,
costs and expenses (including the actual fees of attorneys and other
professionals and all related costs and expenses) finally awarded in any such
claim, action or proceeding. CyberMedia will be relieved of its obligations
under this Section 7.1 unless Phoenix gives (a) prompt written notice of any
such claim, action or proceeding, (b) all authority to direct the defense and
settlement of such claim, action or proceeding (unless CyberMedia is not
defending the action in good faith), and (c) all authority, reasonably available
information and assistance (at CyberMedia's expense) reasonably requested by
CyberMedia for the defense of the same. In connection with the preceding
sentence, all of the facts and circumstances shall be considered in determining
whether or not Phoenix is complying, including without limitation, the
commitments of Phoenix personnel who may be needed to provide the information or
assistance so requested by. If any of the CyberMedia Products or the
Customization Tools are held in any such claim, action or proceeding to infringe
and use thereof is enjoined, CyberMedia will, at its own expense, procure for
the Indemnified Party the right to continue using them, replace them with
functionally equivalent non-infringing products, or modify them to become
functionally equivalent noninfringing products. EXCEPT FOR WILFUL INFRINGEMENT
OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT OF ANY THIRD PARTY, THIS SECTION 7.1 STATES
CYBERMEDIA'S ENTIRE OBLIGATION WITH RESPECT TO THE INFRINGEMENT OF ANY
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

        7.2 Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 7.1, CyberMedia will have
no liability for any infringement claim of any kind:

               (a) to the extent the claim relates to a modified version of such
products, which modification was made other than by or for CyberMedia, if the
claim, suit or proceeding would have been avoided if the modification had not
been made; or

               (b) to the extent it is based on a combination of any of the
CyberMedia Products or Customization Tool with software or hardware not supplied
by CyberMedia to perform an operation, function or process or to form an
apparatus that performs a function, operation or process other than those that
the CyberMedia Products or Customization Tools are designed by CyberMedia to
perform; or

               (c) to the extent it results from the failure of the Indemnified
Party to use within 45 days after receipt thereof any updated or modified
version of CyberMedia Products or Customization Tools which CyberMedia notifies
the Indemnified Party is intended to avoid the infringement or alleged
infringement. For purposes of this Section 7.2(c) CyberMedia and Phoenix will
only be required to notify each other and the notified party will be required to
notify its customers and sublicensees; or


                                      -12-

               (d) to the extent it is based on or arises out of CyberMedia's
compliance with Phoenix's designs, specifications or instructions.

8.      LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

        REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL
PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER OR
ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES,
EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER
PARTY'S TOTAL LIABILITY AND INDEMNITIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ALL CAUSES OF
ACTION ON A CUMULATIVE BASIS ARISING DURING ANY PARTICULAR YEAR EXCEED THE
PAYMENTS ACTUALLY MADE BY PHOENIX HEREUNDER DURING THE YEAR PRECEDING THE YEAR
DURING WHICH THE CLAIM UPON WHICH THE LIABILITY OR INDEMNITY IS BASED WAS FIRST
MADE (OR, IN THE CASE OF CLAIMS MADE DURING THE FIRST YEAR, TWO MILLION
DOLLARS); PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE PRECEDING CLAUSE SHALL NOT APPLY TO
CYBERMEDIA'S REFUND OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 6.4 OR CYBERMEDIA'S OBLIGATIONS
UNDER SECTION 7 TO THE EXTENT ARISING OUT OF WILLFUL INFRINGEMENT.

9.      CONFIDENTIALITY

        9.1 (a) During the Term, each Party will hold any of the other's
Confidential Information (as defined below) in confidence and will: (i) use the
same degree of care to prevent unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential
Information and unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized use of the other's
Source Code that the receiving Party uses with its own information of like
nature (but in no event less than reasonable care), (ii) limit disclosure of the
Confidential Information, including any materials regarding the Confidential
Information that the receiving Party has generated, to such of its employees and
contractors, Subdistributors, OEMs, and Other Manufacturers as have a need to
know the Confidential Information to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement,
(iii) advise its employees, agents, contractors, Subdistributors, OEMs and Other
Manufacturers of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and of
the receiving Party's obligations under this Agreement.

            (b) For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Confidential
Information" refers to the following items relating to the confidential and
proprietary information, including trade secrets, of the disclosing Party: (i)
all written materials provided by the disclosing Party that are clearly marked
as confidential, (ii) any tangible materials provided by the disclosing Party
that are clearly marked as confidential, and (iii) all information that is
orally or visually disclosed by the disclosing Party if it is identified as
confidential at the time of disclosure and is reduced to written disclosure
delivered to the receiving Party within 30 days after the original disclosure.
All Source Code will be deemed to be "Confidential Information." "Confidential
Information" will not include, even if marked as confidential, any materials or
information which: (i) is rightfully known without obligations of
confidentiality by the receiving Party, (ii) is or becomes public knowledge
through no wrongful act of the receiving party, its agents, employees,
sublicensees or affiliates, (iii) is rightfully received by the receiving Party
from another party authorized by the disclosing Party to disseminate such
materials or information, (iv) is independently


                                      -13-

developed by the receiving Party without breach of this Agreement, or (v) is
approved in writing for release by the disclosing Party. Any employee,
Subdistributor, OEM or Other Manufacturer of the receiving Party having access
to any Confidential Information will be required to sign a non-disclosure
agreement protecting the Confidential Information if not already bound by such
an agreement.

               (c) Each Party agrees and acknowledges that unauthorized use or
disclosure of Confidential Information would cause the other party irreparable
harm which may not be adequately compensated for by monetary damages and that,
accordingly, a Party is entitled to preliminary and injunctive relief to remedy
any actual or threatened unauthorized use or disclosure of its Confidential
Information.

        9.2 Except to the extent required by law or judicial order (including
rules or regulations of any federal, state or local authority) or except as
provided herein, neither Party shall disclose this Agreement or any of its terms
without the other's prior written consent, which consent will not be delayed or
unreasonably withheld. Either Party may disclose this Agreement to the extent
required by law or judicial order, or rules or regulations of any federal, state
or local organization, provided that the disclosing Party notifies the other
Party of the purpose of the disclosure and of the portions of the Agreement it
intends to disclose prior to such disclosure and will cooperate with such other
Party to seek appropriate protective treatment, if requested by such other
Party.

        9.3 Prior to the Effective Date, the Parties will agree on the content
and timing on the issuance of a joint press release announcing the existence of
this Agreement.

        9.4 Neither Party will be required to disclose to the other any
confidential information of any third party without having first obtained such
third party's consent.

        9.5 The provisions of this Section 9 will survive for five years 
following termination of this Agreement.

10.     PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

        10.1 The CyberMedia Products and the Customization Tools are and will
remain the sole and exclusive property of CyberMedia and its suppliers, if any.

        10.2 Phoenix will use its reasonable efforts to protect CyberMedia's
intellectual property rights in the CyberMedia Products and the Customization
Tools and will report promptly to CyberMedia any infringement of such rights.

        10.3 Marks. In order to promote brand recognition, the Parties agree to
use the CyberMedia Marks when promoting the CyberMedia Products. Subject to the
terms and conditions of this Agreement, CyberMedia grants Phoenix a
non-exclusive, non-transferable license for the Term to use its Marks relating
to the CyberMedia Products for use in marketing such products, provided that
such use is in accordance with such CyberMedia' s trademark usage guidelines
then in effect. When using CyberMedia's Marks, Phoenix will reference CyberMedia
as the owner of such Marks. Phoenix agrees that it will at no


                                      -14-

time (i) claim any interest in CyberMedia Marks, (ii) register, seek to
register, or cause to be registered any of CyberMedia Marks, (iii) adopt and use
any trademark that might be confusingly similar to CyberMedia trade names,
trademarks or logos, or (iv) attach any trademark, logo or trade designation to
CyberMedia products other than the Marks. Each party will be responsible for
filing its Marks in such jurisdictions as it deems appropriate.

11.     MAINTENANCE, SUPPORT AND TRAINING

        11.1 Phoenix's Responsibilities. Throughout the Term, Phoenix will be
responsible for providing the following support to OEMs, Other Manufacturers and
Subdistributors sublicensed by Phoenix to use, copy or distribute CyberMedia
Products:

               (a) First line technical support for CyberMedia Products
comparable to that provided by Phoenix to its customers for other Phoenix
products;

               (b) Technical training with respect to CyberMedia Products to
OEMs provided on a regular, periodic basis;

               (c) Creation of marketing materials (such as brochures, data
sheets, advertising, customer testimonials and the like) relating to CyberMedia
Products targeted for OEMs;

               (d) Customization of the CyberMedia Products as may be requested
by such OEMs, Subdistributors and Other Manufacturers and agreed to by Phoenix
to the extent possible using the Customization Tools or with source Code
provided Phoenix by CyberMedia pursuant to Section 11.2(d);

               (e) Advising OEMs, Other Manufacturers and Subdistributors with
whom it enters into agreements relating to CyberMedia Products that CyberMedia
will not provide first line support to end users that receive the CyberMedia
Products bundled with their OEM PC Computers.

               (f) Internationalization. If an OEM or Other Manufacturer
requires a language version of CyberMedia Products which is neither available
nor is scheduled by CyberMedia to be released within the ensuing six months,
Phoenix will have the option of creating that language version, directly or
through a subcontractor. Phoenix may exercise such option by giving CyberMedia
notice of its desire to do so and CyberMedia will promptly provide Phoenix with
the materials (including Source Code) as are reasonably necessary to create such
language version of the CyberMedia Products. The use of any Source Code will be
at no charge but will be subject to a license agreement containing such
restrictions as CyberMedia may reasonably require. Phoenix will be entitled to a
credit of [ * ] per unit reported on any royalty report submitted pursuant to
Section 4.1 hereof until such credits equal one-half of the expense incurred by
Phoenix and CyberMedia to create (or have created for it) such other language
version of CyberMedia Products pursuant to the exercise of such option. Each
Party will provide the other with its records supporting the determination of
such expense. CyberMedia may elect to acquire the translation of the CyberMedia
Product created pursuant to the exercise by Phoenix of such option by giving
Phoenix written notice and paying Phoenix the other half of the expense incurred
by Phoenix to create (or have created for it) such translation.

                                      -15-

        11.2 CyberMedia's Responsibilities. CyberMedia will provide Phoenix with
the following support throughout the Term:

               (a) Technical training of Phoenix engineers (including Field
Applications Engineers) in the use and structure of CyberMedia Products and the
use of Customization Tools. At no charge to Phoenix, CyberMedia will train two
(or more if agreed) technically qualified employees of Phoenix at CyberMedia' s
facility where its research and development organization is located for
on-the-job training and such further technical training as may be further and
periodically agreed to by the Parties.

               (b) Back-up technical support to Phoenix's first-line technical
support. This will include (i) direct telephonic support to Phoenix but not to
Phoenix's OEM, Subdistributor or Other Manufacturer sublicensees of CyberMedia
Products, (ii) electronic access by Phoenix whether via the Internet, dial-in,
BBS, or as otherwise agreed, (iii) the development and distribution of fixes to
errors discovered in the CyberMedia Products to Phoenix (or by making them
electronically available to Phoenix, OEMs, Other Manufacturers and
Subdistributors), and, (iv) if necessary, on-site support to Phoenix. The level
of technical support to be provided Phoenix by CyberMedia, including response
times, is set forth in Exhibit D attached hereto.

               (c) Marketing support which includes creation and provision to
Phoenix brochures, data sheets, white papers, competitive analyses, advertising,
customer referrals and the like relating to CyberMedia Products. These items
will be provided in electronic form and, if requested by Phoenix, in hard copy,
camera-ready form.

               (d) If the Customization Tools are not sufficient to enable
Phoenix to perform the customization or integration work requested by an OEM,
Other Manufacturer or Subdistributor, then at Phoenix's option, Phoenix will
advise CyberMedia and CyberMedia will, at its option, within 10 working days
after receipt of such advise, either provide Phoenix with the Source Code to the
CyberMedia Products or such other materials as are necessary to perform such
work or will provide the service of CyberMedia engineer(s) to perform such work
for Phoenix. Any license for such Source Code shall be at no charge to Phoenix
but will contain such restrictions as CyberMedia may reasonably require.
CyberMedia will invoice Phoenix and not the OEM, Other Manufacturer or
Subdistributor for such work and CyberMedia will bill for such services at the
rate of $150/hour plus all reasonable travel, stay and other incidental
expenses. The Parties agree that as between them, Phoenix will have the
exclusive right to provide such integration or customization services to OEMs if
such services can be performed using the Customization Tools or if CyberMedia
has agreed to license Phoenix with the Source Code needed to perform the
particular customization.

               (e) During the Term, CyberMedia will use all reasonable
commercial efforts to promote, enhance and upgrade the CyberMedia Products and
to strive to keep CyberMedia Products competitive with other's products that
compete in the same market.

               (f) Internationalization: CyberMedia either has versions of, or
has plans to develop CyberMedia Products in the languages set forth in Exhibit
A. CyberMedia will keep Phoenix informed as to those development plans and any
future plans for the development of CyberMedia Products in other


                                      -16-

languages and will report on these plans at each meeting referred to in Section
11.3 below. Each language version of CyberMedia Products created by CyberMedia
will be treated as a CyberMedia Product for purposes of this Agreement.

        11.3 Coordination and Program Reviews. The Coordinators and senior
executives of CyberMedia and Phoenix will meet at least once per month during
the first six months following the Effective Date and at least once per quarter
thereafter. At such meetings, the attendees will review progress and results
against each Party's marketing and engineering plans with respect to CyberMedia
Products, will establish development and marketing priorities and coordinate
overall marketing, promotional and development strategies for the PC automatic
service and support market. Such discussions will specifically include reports
by Phoenix on its progress toward entering into license agreements with OEMs and
Phoenix's forecasts for sales of CyberMedia Product licenses and reports by
CyberMedia as to its future CyberMedia Product development plans, including the
anticipated or planned use of any third party software and the expected royalty
obligation to the third party. In addition, the meetings can be used as a forum
for the Parties to resolve conflicts or disputes which may have arisen under the
Agreement. Each party will provide to the other their respective forecasts and
market projections for CyberMedia Products which will include such information
as the Parties agree.

        11.4 Support for CyberScript. Promptly after the Effective Date, Phoenix
will attempt to schedule a meeting with appropriate personnel from Intel
Corporation ("Intel") for the purpose of proposing with CyberMedia that Intel
support CyberMedia's CyberScript language as the industry standard language for
Knowledge Bases.

12.     OIL CHANGE AMENDMENT; FIRSTAID PLUS PACK DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT

        12.1 As soon as practical after the Effective Date, with a target of not
later than October 9, 1996, the Parties will use all reasonable commercial
efforts to negotiate in a definitive agreement relating to the development of
First Aid Plus Pack. Such agreement will be coterminous with this Agreement and
will contain such special terms and conditions, including without limitation a
detailed statement of work with respect to the First Aid Plus Pack, statements
as to ownership of First Aid Plus Pack, and special licensing and sublicensing
terms as the parties may negotiate.

13.     TERM; TERMINATION; EFFECT OF TERMINATION

        13.1 The initial Term shall be from the Effective Date through December
31, 2001, unless terminated earlier as provided herein; thereafter, this
Agreement will renew for consecutive one Year periods.

        13.2   Either Party will have the right to terminate this Agreement:

               (a) if the other Party breaches any material obligation imposed
on it under this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after
the giving of written notice thereof by the Party alleging such breach or such
longer period as to which the parties may agree if such breach is not


                                      -17-

capable of being cured within 30 days, provided that the breaching party has
begun working on the cure during such 30 day period. Such notice will specify
the obligation allegedly breached;

               (b) the other Party becomes the subject of a voluntary petition
in bankruptcy or any voluntary proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership,
liquidation, or composition for the benefit of creditors;

               (c) the other Party becomes the subject of an involuntary
petition in bankruptcy or any involuntary proceeding relating to insolvency,
receivership, liquidation, or composition for the benefit of credits, if such
petition or proceeding is not dismissed within 60 days of filing;

               (d) 
                       [ * ] 


        13.3   The following is applicable upon termination of this Agreement:

               (a) The confidentiality provisions of this Agreement will survive
termination of this Agreement in accordance with the provisions of Section 9
above. In addition, the provisions of Articles 1, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 14 and, for
the term of the license agreements as specified in Section 13.3(b), Sections 2.1
(other than subsection (d) thereof) and 2.2 will survive termination of this
Agreement.

               (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, on any termination of this
Agreement, Phoenix will have no rights to sublicense the CyberMedia Products to
any person other than to OEMs or Other Manufacturers during the then remaining
term of their respective license agreements with Phoenix and other than to
Subdistributors for sublicensing on to such OEMs and Other Manufacturers during
the then remaining term of each such OEMs' or Other Manufacturers' license
agreements with the Subdistributors. At the end of the terms of all such license
agreements, Phoenix will cease granting any further sublicensing rights with
respect to CyberMedia Products and will either promptly return to CyberMedia or
promptly destroy all but a single archival copy of the CyberMedia Products,
including related documentation, and, in the case of destruction, will cause an
officer of Phoenix to certify to CyberMedia in writing that such destruction has
occurred; and

               (c) From and after the date Phoenix may no longer sublicense
CyberMedia products, neither Party will be required to provide the other with
any of its products or services.

14.     GENERAL

        14.1 A Party may assign its rights and delegate its duties, by operation
of law or otherwise, in whole but not in part, to any third party. However, the
assigning Party shall give the other Party prior written notice of any such
assignment Party and the non-assigning Party may terminate this Agreement at any
time thereafter on thirty days' prior written notice if such third party is a
competitor of the non-assigning Party. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement
will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and
assigns of the Parties.

unless it is set forth in a writing which refers to the particular provision(s)

stated herein are declared to be several.

        14.9 Neither Party will be held liable for failure to fulfill any of its
obligations hereunder if such failure is due to flood, extreme weather, fire, or

                             MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT


EMERGENCY SUPPORT

        Qualified CyberMedia personnel will be available to respond seven days
per week, 24 hours per day, to work with Phoenix personnel to support emergency
problems in CyberMedia Products (such as line-down) which may have been caused
by CyberMedia Products. Such support should include, without limitation,
consideration of making modifications to the CyberMedia Products as a solution
to the problem. Nothing in this Section shall require CyberMedia employees to
perform in any manner that Phoenix does not expect of its own employees.

MAINTENANCE AND ROUTINE SUPPORT

        During the term of this Agreement, CyberMedia will provide reasonable
maintenance and support of CyberMedia Products, as follows:

1. Documentation. CyberMedia shall supply Phoenix with its support documentation
necessary to enable Phoenix to provide first level support to Phoenix's
customers. In addition, CyberMedia shall permit Phoenix on-line and other access
to the internal bug list for CyberMedia Products or an equivalent database for
the CyberMedia Products.

2. Support. CyberMedia shall make reasonable efforts to supply Phoenix with
second level support as described in this Exhibit for CyberMedia Products.
CyberMedia will provide telephone responses to Phoenix as quickly as is
reasonable, but in no event more than one working day of receipt of Phoenix's
telephone support questions. CyberMedia will be available to take Phoenix's
support questions from 10AM to 7PM Pacific Time (Standard or Daylight during the
appropriate season). If Phoenix, in its reasonable judgment and discretion,
determines it cannot remedy a problem with a CyberMedia Product in supporting
its customers, Phoenix shall furnish CyberMedia a problem report which shall
identify and describe the problem using the following definitions:

        Fatal:               condition which precludes all useful work from 
                             being done;

        Severe Impact:       condition which precludes one or more major 
                             functions from being performed;

        Degradation:         condition which disables one or more non-essential
                             functions;

        Minimal Impact:      any other condition which requires correction.

1. Phoenix Assistance. To assist CyberMedia in providing the most effective
responsiveness to trouble reporting and solution, Phoenix will provide access
(which at Phoenix's option, may be on-site at Phoenix) to at least two (2)
systems in which the problems can be reproduced (if CyberMedia does not have
such systems available), and access to Phoenix's hardware and software debugging
resources, if CyberMedia so requests.

2. Down Revisions. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, twelve (12) months
after CyberMedia ceases to ship a version of a CyberMedia Product to any third
party, the previous version need no longer be supported by CyberMedia.

3. Bug Fixes. If CyberMedia discovers any bugs in the technology delivered to
Phoenix hereunder, CyberMedia shall report them to Phoenix. If CyberMedia
creates a bug fix or maintenance release of the related technology, CyberMedia
shall make the bug fix available to Phoenix no later than it is made available
to any third party.
