Hi Jenny100 - and thank you for your fast response and your suggestion and
To allow me to act on the anti virus thing, I uninstalled the game, cleared out any left over files with CCleaner, re-booted and then started everything all over yet again
This time I disabled my anti virus for the install.
Also, once I'd launched the game, I immediately went into the "set-up" options and chose to enable "slideshow".PLUS
abled "alternate control" .... whatever that is !!
Going on then to test play the game I had a peculiar mixture of little blue navigation arrows AND mouse navigation.
BUT THEY WORKED !!
I now seem to be able to move round with ease.
[And later re-enabling my anti virus to play the game didn't have any detrimental effects either
So, once again, thank you very much !!
Celebrated too soon ....
Once the phone rang, after I entered the house, the text speed went mad. It raced along too fast to be read. And going into "set-up" and opting for slow text didn't make any difference at all.
How unfortunate - just when I'd got navigation workable
Have to think of something else to try now.
