Solved problem with vista

Post by cjs41 on 17th May 2009, 2:00 am

Vista on desktop worked fine until two days ago. I tried to reinstall Rome:Total War for my son because it had begun to freeze up. It installed fine but will not load or when it does, it states that another one is already running. Then more of the games would not load and then when clicking on the game icons, the screen turns black and a swirling cursor in the middle of the page and you can't go any further. You have to use control altdelete to exit the program. Then clicking while in AOL or IE causes the page to brighten with a Not Responding on the title bar and you have to use the task manager to exit them. I did try to sharpen the text on the desktop icons to make them easier to read a few days ago. Could I have possibly caused some problem with the graphics card or something else to make the computer perform like it is? Thanks

Try a System Restore to before you had the problem.

Click Start> Programs > Accessories > System Tools> System Restore> Pick your Date> Next > Etc.

If using Norton, disable it before using SR.
