Hi,

WIN XP w/all updates

Somehow, the game, SPIDER, disppeared from my Hard Drive.

I put the WIN XP disk in the CD Rom Drive,and found SPIDER under Games
and Accessories.

No matter what I did, I could not bring it into my "C" drive. Somehow,
later, it did come in, but it was not in EXE form, but instead .ex_
form.

How can I open it?? I'm lost without it...(my therapy)

Help?

Mike

Try Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows
Components>Accesories and Utilities>Games.

You may have to remove first then re-install.

Have your CD handy.

Hi Mike,

The file from the CD is in compressed form. More info here on how to expand a file:
