Hello,

I recently bought Comand and Conquer 3 & Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts for my PC. When I tried installing Company of Heroes, after I double-clicked on my G Drive (which is my CD-DRIVE) my computer started to lag.

After about 3 minutes, the computer stated that my CD-DRIVE is a non-Win32 executable program. Afterwards, everytime I place a CD inside the CD-ROM, it gives me the same message.

Currently, I guess there is a problem with my CD-ROM.

Please advice and help me. :thumbsup:

Is the game 64 bit? I see your OS is.

Yes everything seems to work FINE beforehand.

It's just right now after doing all that, my CD-ROM can't even open any CDs without lagging the entire system up and ending up giving me that non-Win32 program notice.

Plz advice.

Go to Device Manager and remove the CD ROM drive. Reboot the computer and let Windows re-detect it and reload it and see if that helps
