      Hi Mordechai
      What I would do is to put on XP + SP1 and SP2 + DIRECTX i think it is up to
      10 now ,SP2 makes USB anything much easier to work with and if it is NOT
      going to the outside world go to
      start Internet explorer and go to Tools\Internet options and click then go
      to advanced and scroll down to security and tick the first and second boxes
      and apply and you should be able to run any game anyone wants.
