    First time posting. I bought a cd game for my grandson. I am running Windows 2000 professional. It is the upgrade version. I had 98. When I place the game in the cd I get 2 boxes. The first box is 16 Bit Windows Subsystem. C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\aswMonVd.dll. An installable Virtual Device Driver failed DLL initialization. Choose 'Close' to termininate the application. This is followed by the CLOSE box and IGNORE box. I click the IGNORE box and then I get the following message again. 16 Bit Windows Subsystem C:\Winnt\System32\AutoexecNT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows Applications. Choose 'CLOSE' to terminate the application. This has the close box or ignore box. You choose either box and it will send me back to my icons. Thank you for any help to this first timer. Frank in Sunny San Diego
