    I try and keep currect when it comes to the Windows updates for my WindowsXP PC. I keep Norton virus updated also. So, here's my problem. When I allow the latest windows update to be installed on my computer, it starts acting werid. When I try and play two particular games I have on my computer, ( Power Chips and High Roller) They seem to use some kind of "DOS" window. Normally they play just fine. But after I allow the latest windows update to install and run either of these games, and they go into the "DOS" window, then they crash, and then it opens any number of programs that I have as icons on my desktop. If I "un-install" the updates, everything is fine. What can I do? I would liek to stay up to date, but I still want to run my games.

    Try and do a system restore. pick a date before you did the update. But don't pick the last one. Foe some reason it doesn't work as good, or at all.
