Tried to play Solitare, but all I get is a 'green screen' titled 'Solitare'.
Try to "Deal" and nothing happens. I did removed the games and
re-installed from my MS Windows 98 CD and the problem still continues. Can
someone help me out?
Click START / Settings / Control Panel / Add-Remove Programs / Click on the
Windows Setup tab and double-click Accessories. Check the box beside Games,
then click OK / click OK again. You'll need your Windows 98 Setup CD to
complete the installation unless the win98 .cab files directory was saved on
your hard drive.
"Have you also installed McAfee VirusScan's latest version? Malfunctioning
in Freecell and Solitaire is a known problem for them, and they suggest a
solution on their site."
- AVG does the same thing.. Disable before you start the game.
- Slow Spider Solitaire: "If I open "Start",and then "Help" Spider
Solitaire works fine. That is I must run "Help" while I'm playing Spider
- Pop Up stoppers.
- Cookie Crushers.
- Mouse pointers.. Use default, or less-active pointers.
- IE 6.
- Iomega zipdisk program conflict with IE6. An article: "..a post on here a
couple of weeks ago that suggested that this has to do with a Iomega Zip
disk file that you have running. IMGICON.EXE This is loaded from the
StartUp folder as Zip Disk Icons. (or it was on my PC) Hit Ctrl - Alt - Del
and see if it's running."
- Cleansweep's usage monitor. Disable."
Hope this helps.
