    'Microsoft Visual C Runtime Library
    Runtime Error
    Program C \wndows\system32\spool\Drivers\W32X86\3\LXCEtime.exe
    Has requested Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way'

    Try installing from Windows "add a printer". Point it to the CDRom when it asks.

    from what I've gathered, one way to get past this is to DELETE every entry that includes the word lexmark from the registry....

    Needless to say, if you decide to go this route, you should backup your registry...

    Try uninstalling the printer completely, delete any folders in Explorer, and the run Ccleaner to delete the registry entries. That MIGHT work--and it's safer than regedit.

    What are your system specs, btw? SLOW gaming is usually an indication that your system can't handle the game, and not necessarily a hardware or software issue. Different games may run just fine.

    Post back what your computer is...
