Hello BleepingComputer Community!. Im having a problem. I have downloaded and installed a game, about a 2 years ago. And now for about a year, it wont load when i click on the icon to launch it. Is there any programs that will be blocking this program. If so can i get a list of firewalls, or anything that may be blocking this program that happens to be on vista.

Thank you

In other words are there any virus blockings or anything that blocks something that comes with Windows Firewall Home Basic. here is my Dxdiag list. Im sorry i cant get HiJackThis log. cuz it wont launch ;) and i tried EVerything.!!
