Does StarCraft runs on Windows XP Service Pack 3?! because last year i bought a Star Craft CD and managed to install and uninstall it on my laptop..
but now that windows automatically update my XP into Service Pack 3, i cant install Star Craft anymore, when i try to open the .exe and the auto play, my laptop suddenly freezes and runs very slow that i have to press the power button to power it off..i tried it so many times and get the same result..
i am using windows xp sp3, 1.59Ghz processor with 512 memory..

thanks for you're help.. :thumbsup:

Hello rozzkie,

That sounds strange, the event viewer may give some more information.

1. Click Start select run
2. Type eventvwr.exe
3. Press enter
4. Search through the groups for errors and warnings.
5. Double click on each error and or warning.
6. Locate the copy to clipboard button, Posted Image (under the two arrows)
7. Let us know what you find. (paste the results)

have you tried compatibility mode? is there a new patch that will fix that? ( I don't play the game, but I hear they still patch it).
