I downloaded, installed and ran both of those programs, Jenny, but still no positive results I get the same error message while installing XVID.
Thank you again for all your suggestions.
I'm sure these two programs will help remove some of the unwanted stuff on my computer. in any case. I'm using the Trial versions right now.
WELL, after all that, I downloaded the game on my wife's Vista PC, and it's running just fine. This puts "closure" on this particular situation. Thanks again, Jenny.
