XP blocking an .exe

  wotbus@ 16:59 14 Nov 07

I have just installed TIR Racing. I have used it in the past but some sort of security update must have arrived from MotherSoft as the game won't run from the disc. Where is the "something" which I can tick/untick to allow this program to runrun?
PS It doesn't get past the first screen - just locks the pc.

runrun???? Dah do runrun.
Sorry, just nerves from restraining the urge to break something.....

Press Desktop shortcut with disc in the tray.
Game begins to load, see first screen, hear music.
Press Enter, screen goes black
On the left of taskbar are 2 minimised windows:
1 - TIR
2 - Protection Error
Neither will maximise or close. The only way out is Ctl/Alt/Del and end the program from Task Manager.
Mothersoft error message blah then back to a normal destop.
I seem to recall seeing one day, a box where you can tick to allow certain programs to run but I have no idea where to find it. Any idea's anyone ?

PS The little box had some sort of "To protect your safety" title...
