If your pc came with a restore disk, this will put it back like it was when you first got it. If not, go to add/remove programs and un install the game and any software or programs that came with it or installed with it.
Go to start/ search/ show hidden files/ type in prefetch.
Should be the first folder that comes up. Open it and delete all files/folders in the prefetch folder. Delete all temporary files/cookies.
Go to start/ computer/ C drive/ programs. Look for the game installed there & delete it.
To be sure you have removed all traces you can go to search again/ type in the name of the game. If any files/folders come up delete them. Restart and see if you notice a difference!

    I'm sorry but I don't agree with pingps' solution as the first choice. It's only a simple game software that can be easily removed without formatting and reinstalling the entire operating system. And with every new system you almost "NEVER" get the operating systems install disk....

Hey,
Just a though but you could try and reload the operating system if you have the original install disk.
Good luck!

Can i'm going in pc game for vista


1. PC games are better supported by Windows XP than Vista.
2. IGI is a large game and and may sometimes play very slow on vista.
3. This is because the game eats up a large amount of your RAM during gaming which slows down background windows processes.

4.However, the better way to play IGI on Vista is to install a NVIDIA Graphics Card - GeForce 8600GT - 256 MB / 512 MB on your computer.

Happy gaming! :)

Vista 32 bit Code 39 on different drivers and 2 9600GT cards


Hello, well on your description I understand that the card works on other systems but I dont understand how or what happens on this system that it is not working. Is there no video at all, or is the resolution faulty, or is it just 3d games having problems or running slow?

In any case sometimes driver / software issues may happen and the windows registry can get corrupted. 1 possible solution is to run system restore from (accessories system tools) and take back the system to a date where the card was known to work.

good luck!
