Hiya and welcome

This may be caused by a conflicting program. Press ctrl-alt-del to see whats running when this happens.

Also, lets see whats satrting up at bootup.

Go to Run and type MSINFO32. If you get an error, Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Information.
On the left choose Software Envirement, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

If you cannot do this, as I'm a bit vague with Win95, go to Run and type MSCONFIG. Startup tab, and jot down all that is there.

Regards

Go to control panel, Add/Remove programs and the Windows setup tab. Go down to accessories and click the details button. Scroll down to games and seledt the details button, uncheck games and select ok. Once the programs are removed, go back in and recheck the games to reinstall them.

Hiya

Just received a PM:

Hi Eddie, I still haven't figured out what is going on with my solitaire game. Any new advice would be appreciated
Have you tried to do what Rockn suggested? Also, the list of your startup Programs will be usefull.
