Ok I downloaded the demo, just to, you know, see if it'll work on my PC. I download it and install and all that and when I go to boot it up it comes up with an error message that says "splintercell3.exe has encountered an error and must close." Just to preanswer some questions I saw elsewhere, I quit all background tasks, I do NOT have windows Blinds, and my computer should handle it. It installed fine it just won't boot up.
also it isn't my video card because I looked at the requirements thread and I have a 1.3GHz processor a Radeon 9600 and 512 megs of RAM.

Any ideas? I'm willing to try anything besides reinstalling windows. I also tried downloading it from different places and got the same thing.

Yes I have done that
also does this game require SSE? because if so than that's the problem and I won't worry about it.

1.3GHz is kinda low... Dont know if it can cause the problem, but it's definately not good.

They list 1.4 as minimum for the actual game.
