    Uninstall your firewall and try again. Some firewalls do not like Battlefield 1942. Once installed, turn the firewall back on and things are usually fine.
    This is not the only possibility, but one I see most often.

    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Go to Add and Remove Software
    Remove the Firewall
    Reboot in normal mode.
    Is Firewall still there grayed out?
    Run AVG Free Antivirus, AVG AntiSpyware, and AVG Rootkit.
    Run the Free Adaware 2007, and SpyBot 1.4
    Reboot
    Go to Start-> Control Panel-> Administrative Tools-> Computer Management-> and defragment the computer.
    Reboot
    Download and install the Free RegClean or RegCleaner, and look for any residue or residual items of Battlefield 1942. Remove them.
    Exit you registry cleaner.
    Reboot
    Now you should have a cleaned system that will enable the install of Battlefield 1942.
    Once it is intalled, reinstall your firewall if you want... I recommend the free Comodo or Zone Alarm... and be sure your antivirus programs and antispyware programs are working.
