There are plenty of games not yet compatible with Windows 7. Check if the game that you wanted to play is compatible. If it's not, there is still a way to work around it. Right click on the program icon of the game and click on "troubleshoot compatibility" it will automatically find the best compatibility setting for that program. If you are able to start the program and run it, save that setting. You can also click on "run as administrator" it might help.
Good Luck!

When i try and start a new game on sherlock holmes the awakened it just drops straight to windows

It mostly happens when there your system does not meet the requirements needed by the video game.
Just read the requirements of the game and update your pc as asked.

If it still not works just update your motherboard or graphic card driver..

Problems running with Windows 7 Ultimate

The program doesn't list that it is Win7 compatable (either on the package specs or Microsoft Compatability Center). Try right clicking on the install program and choose Properties. Then click on the Compatability Tab, put a check in the box "Run this program in the Compatability mode", choose Vista in the adjacent drop down box. Then right click on the installer and choose "Run as administrator". If this runs, great - have fun.

If it doesn't run, you have an alternative option since you hace Win7 Ultimate. Download and install the two programs that make up the XP mode from Microsoft; this will create a virtual computer that runs XP. Install this program inside that virtual computer. Have fun with the game.

I hope this helps.
