have you checked that the game is win2k compatible as some games run badly on win2k if at all

p.s if you repost this in lower case you may get more response as the use of caps is considered to be shouting

goodluck

Thankyou Terrahawk for explaining about upper and lower case.Apologies all round please.
The game I'm playing is Win2k compatible,my mates'computer which is identical to mine,played it perfectly.I think for some unknown reason I can't get rid of my old "saves" and when I reinstall, the old "saves" come up.I've deleted these old "saves"from mydocs,and myprogs,in fact anywhere I can find them,plus old adventgame folders.and then emptied the recycle bin.

Try this - I had a similar problem with Morrowind on 98SE.

Un-install game.
Remove game folder and all saves from PC too.
Delete all files in temp folder
reboot.
Close all running programs except explorer and sys tray - easy in 98SE, don't know about win2K
re-install.

A cluttered tremp folder and/or running programs in background can interfere with program installation, esp. if it is a large program such as Norton System works or a game.
