Did you get Service Pack two? (SP2)
if not open internet explorer click tools, then windows update.

Plus Windows XP runs a lot of services in the background. Check to see how much memory you have available prior to launching the game. Provided you have everything upgraded/installed properly, then it might be a matter of disabling non-essential services.

Demons7th_Baker, if you have the right spec computer, then reinstall your video drivers as XP has a habit of using MS video drivers. Download the ones recommended in the latest readme file in your Main FB folder and use the ones for your video card.

Good Luck and welcome to the XP world.

Don't forget your system drivers(mobo drivers) too!

don't forget that XP uses a lot more memory for itself than other windows, so make sure you have the recommended 1 gig RAM...

Installing XP should be done 'fresh' onto a clean re-formatted drive, then install all the drivers after that..

laying it on top of all your old cr*p will never be as good
