Hello, and welcome, AlexADAC. What game and what operating system do you have? Yo could try to run the game in compatibility mode (right clic on the executable - Properties - Compatibility).

Yes the compatibility menu might do the trick here. To access it, right click on the file > click properties > compatibility

Select the following options:

Run this program in compaitbility mode for: Windows 95

Click Apply then Ok.

That should do the trick. :thumbsup:

This is a classic problem that happens on alot of win xp machines juste send me your msn in a pm and I will send you a fix for it.

BTW I am just going to suppose that the game your downloaded is legal...
