Hi John,

Just insert the CD and it will start the installation process.  Follow
the instructions on the screen and answer any prompts it gives you.

Afterwards, in the Multiplayer (online) area, it will ask you to choose
a name for your character.  Give this information to your friend, and
then once you're both in the game, look up how the messaging works,
and send your friend a message so you can both meet someplace and
then enjoy exploring and playing in the Unreal World.  :-)

Yahoo Games - Pool

My new PC came with XP. When I enter Yahoo Pool the java applet hangs and does not load almost always. When I do get into the game, boarders and the white pop up boxes well at the mouse arrow. Then when getting out of the games, I.E. freezes and I must restart I.E. Dell doesn't know what's wrong and Microsoft wants to charge me $35 to "help" me. I've played this game on a PC with XP before and it worked fine. Please.....any suggestions on what could be wrong?

Freezing games in XP
1 replies , 5/10/2004, 11:56:03 PM
My computer recently crashed, again, because of Kazaa crap, so i reinstalled Windows XP using the Quick Restore disks that came with my comp. Since then, whenever I play a game, whether it be Starcraft of Call of Duty, the game runs fine for a minute or two, then it pratically freezes and runs at less than a frame a second. It will repeat this process consistently with any game, as far as I can tell. I updated the hell out of my grahics drivers, processor, and anything else I could find. What should I do??

WindowsXP Pro resets when running games - help!
4 replies , 5/7/2004, 7:24:47 AM
I've recently built a PC with XP Pro. It has the latest DirectX installed and the system ran fine for over a week with no problems. Games were being played for a few hours at a time with no problems (i.e Black Hawk Down, Call of Duty etc.) However, now when playing games, after a couple of minutes when playing it suddenly resets the system and reboots back up to Windows with no prior warning. There are no problems or crashes when working in Windows normally so I can't understand what could be the problem. I have SP1 installed for Windows and the PC has never been connected to the Internet so i'm assuming that there can't have been a virus downloaded from anywhere. It has an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP card & AthlonXP 2.6 processor & 512mb PC2700 Ram. Can anyone help?? Thanks

I have recently been experiencing major modem problems with my Windows XP System. I have been told that my ISP doesn't support the particular modem currently attached to the computer. Following advice from one of the help lines to delete some of the downloaded software. In the course of doing this i appear to have inadvertently deleted my Internet Explorer service, resulting in my current inability to access the Yahoo Games Room. Because the modem which is currently attached to my machine is not completely compatible, the link breaks continuously, with the inexplorer only partially downloaded and I'm forced to go back to the start. To make matters worse, the modem that would be compatible with my machine and ISP will not be available till September. Any tips?

As you will see I do not know anything about compuers and I feel so stupid for what I just did and I do not know how to restore this game back like it was. I was going to play freecell and I went to start and programs and games and when I got to games freecell was at the top of the list. Instead of clicking on freecell for some reason only God knows I held down the mouse and I drug freecell from the list of games over as an icon on my display screen. now freecell is not listed under games. Could you please tell me how to get freecell listed back under games so when I go to programs and then games it will be listed there. Thank you so very much for any help you can give me. If you will please e-mail me at m********** May the Lord Bless all ways. Thanks in advance for any help you will be able to give me. Jean Cole
