    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Maybe you need to run the game in Windows 2000 compatibility mode.

    Right click on the games icon, and select properties, and then the compatibility tab. Tick the box that says "Run this programme in compatibility mode for:". Choose windows 2000 from the drop down menu, click apply/ok.

    Other than that, apart from uninstalling/reinstalling the game. I`m out of ideas.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
