    I have a flying program that I am very fond of called JETFIGHT by
    Velocity Software. Win95/98 let's me load it, but when I try to
    run it the title screen comes up, then the computer freezes! You
    have to shut the machine down by killing the power to reboot.
    Cont./Alt./Del. won't work. I suspect something to do with the
    active-X controls, is there anything I can do to get this to run?
    Yes, I did reboot in the dos only mode. Thank You.

    A common problem with older DOS games is incompatabilty with new video and sound drivers. Is there a setup in the game that you can try differant video and audio options?
