I'm very fond of Pinball 3D space cadet for Windows. I have got Windows XP,
the pinball of which doesn't run very well...I uninstalled it with the CD,
but I cannot delete a file "Pinball.exe", so that the version pinball 95
downloaded freezes, I can do nothing, about two hours of playing...How could
I delete the file, or what can I do ???
I thought about installing W98 after uninstalling WXP home, but how can i do
it ???

Thank you very much if someone can help me ! and sorry for my English !

En français, pour ceux qui le parlent :
j'adore jouer à Pinball 3D cadet de l'espace pour Windows, mais avec Windows
XP, il ne marche pas bien. Je l'ai désinstallé, mais il reste un fichier que
je n'arrive pas à supprimer : Pinball.exe, de sorte que la version 95 que
j'ai téléchargée fait boguer mon PC qui se bloque totalement. Comment faire
pour supprimer ce fichier ??,
J'ai envisagé de désinstaller Windows XP, pour le remplacer par W98, mais
commen faire, le cd d'installation ne le permet pas...

Merci à qui pourrait m'aider...

The proper Pinball file should be in your C:\Program Files\Windows
NT\Pinball directory (along with all the necessary files for the game). If
you have somehow removed it - which shouldn't be done because it is a
"system" file, then I would use a Restore Point from System Restore to go
back to when you had it running.

If you have simply lost the connection to it, right-click your desktop and
select New/Shortcut and then Browse to the C:\Program Files\Windows
NT\Pinball directory to find the pinball.exe file, highlight it and create
the connection via a new Shortcut.
