  1. Hi i am a call of duty aholic and for some time i have been trying and trying to play Call of duty UO 2003-2004 i think. the COD2 works fine but im addicted to the UO. Well my problem is simple and strange, instalation goes well, the patches instal well also, but when i open the multiplayer gamiing the main page of COD shows up but my cursor is nowhere to be found, therefore i cant choose anything and i have to annoyingly ALT+Ctrl+Del the game. It has only worked once but the game would not give me more than 4 servers.

    I truly want to fix this and start playing on my new laptop and gamecard, i might even paypal any kind member $5 for the fixing of this vista problem. IM me if you can help me Jose__1800@hotmail.com

    thanks
