Several things you can try. Roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8
during boot and choose Safe Mode).
Win 7 -
Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a
date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
In Safe Mode try
disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type
MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to
load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources
while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load,
but when only you initiate.
First, let's see if you can download and run your Anti-Virus Program in Safe Mode. Safe Mode is a diagnostic feature built into Windows to help diagnose problems - particularly problems encountered at startup. When you start windows in Safe Mode, Windows loads only the programs and files necessary to start and run Windows. All unnecessary drivers are not loaded, so certain Windows features may not be available, however, if Windows boots (starts up) in safe mode, you know that your machine is not "brain dead" and you have a basically functional computer.
To start Windows in Safe Mode, start tapping the F8 key as soon as you apply power to your PC. Continue tapping until you se a menu titled "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Using the arrow keys, scroll up until Safe Mode With Networking is highlighted and then press the Enter key. You will see a lot of messages scroll down across your monitor screen. After about a minute you should see a Desktop Dialog box stating "Windows is running in Safe Mode." Click on "Yes" to continue, and Windows will start up in Safe Mode.
Now try to download and run your Anti-Virus program. If it will not load or run, it's because a virus has control of your operating system and is blocking your attemps to remove it. You will have to take your PC to a Computer Technician who will be equipped with the necessary tools and software to remove your virus. Your only other choice is to use your System Restore CD to completely re-format your hard drive and restore your PC to the state it was in when you first got it. NOTE: This will delete all data on your hard drive and you will have to re-install all software programs that you installed on the machine since to first got it.

The optimal thing to do is remove the software program and re install it. Just as a word of warning if you don't know what services should be starting up with windows you should not disable any. Its fine to disable programs from the start up options, but as a rule of thumb stay away from the services.
Chances are this is a software program problem not computer.
If it still does not work, please post your question more thoroughly. Good Luck.
try booting into safe mode? on a pc hit F8 repeatedly while you boot
until you get a boot screen with the safe mode option. Some laptops
have differant keys, eg F2, <Del>, F10, but ussualy they state
this when it boots up.
when you get into safe mode, go to your
run prompt and type "msconfig" hit enter. got to startup, disable
all.Go to services, disable all. reboot. if this works, try running an
pdated antivirus scan. I recommend using Avast! which is like AVG. It
can do a start up scan. also try running something like 'trojan
remover' which is free to download.

Right click on the game icon, select properties and select the compatibility tab. From there check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). It might be good to also check "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition" Hope it helps.
