Hi, tinman. :flowers:

Good question.
Started when you installed SP2?
MS Info, Using Programs & Hardware with SP2 would be something to read.

If the game(s) require online connection,
then the "new improved" built-in firewall may be suspect.

If you have a "3rd party" firewall running,
and the built-in is running (by default, after SP2 installation) also,
that might explain it.

The file command.co missing causes me to scratch my head.
I'm not familiar with .co as a file extension,
a search of my HD for instance comes up empty
and a google search in inconclusive, too.

That could simply mean a particular game"s file is not "seen".

A typo error, maybe?

If it were command.com,
that's a file in the C:\Windows\System32 folder,
a 50kb MS-DOS Application file.

I also found a copy of that application to be part
of another program I have installed on my PC:
a 85kb MS-DOS Apdlication file, part of the
Iola System Mechanic program,
in fact specific to the Drive Scrubber Boot Image file.
So, other applications might use it, too.

Without going into any more detail that may
not apply to your problem,
I'd say you should note & mention which exact game(s) give you the
error, and if it is the command.com involved.

You can check your own
C:\Windows\System32\command.com, also.
from desktop Start-->Search-->select "all files & folders"-->select "more advanced options"-->
check search "system folders", "hidden files & folders" & "sub-folders".
Then type command.com in "all or part of the filename" box.

It's a start.
