    I can create a neighborhood and can create the individuals in a family but once I say save family it tries to download for nearly 10-15 mins. I've pressed Ctrl + Alt + Delete and get the same issue with Sims2 not responding and such. So I have to quit the game. I've tried to create my first family nearly 5 times and have yet to get past that point. It's quite frustrating.
    I just got a new Dell and figured it would have the right qualifications for such a game.

My daughter has that game and was having similar issues. after reading the back of the game we found that it requires a better video/grafix card than we had and that the proccesor we were using was not fast enough for the game. she could play for a while and then it would just lock up. we have since gotten her a better computer and the game works fine

Can't cancel print job

I have this problem in Vista Home Premium with a Lexmark Z611. What I do is go into the Task Manager (right-click an empty spot on the taskbar or Ctrl-Alt-Delete and then click Task Manager in Vista; Ctrl-Alt-Delete in XP) and go to the Processes tab. From there I find the process that begins with the letters lxb (lxbcpswx.exe on mine), right-click it and select End Process. That should purge your print queue and let you start over.
