Processor/memory/graphics card/operating system would be a start!

Andy,

Did you install and run FS from the same account with administrative
privileges?

Just a guess: DirectX problems?

Might as well test your DirectX by going to start->run type in "dxdiag" in
the box and run it.

I have installed on Admin account and have tested direct X but reports
no problems.

The only part of the program that is causing problems is the sliders
in settings ie Aircraft density and realisation they just won`t move.

Check that there is an fs9.cfg file and that it is not somehow
write-protected and that you can access and modify it, see the FAQ
below to find the file:
