Can somebody please tell me if i can play Windows 95 games on Windows XP? I've just bought a rugby game but the computer wont let me play it! or uninstall it for that matter.

Try running it in Compatability Mode - have a look in Help and Support to see how to do this.

Thanks for that VoG, but because its a game when i click on properties, there is no compatability tab. Any suggestions?

'To start the Program Compatibility Wizard, click Start, click Help and Support, click Find compatible hardware and software for Windows XP, and then, under See Also in the navigation pane, click Program Compatibility Wizard.'

It's all on your computer. Best of luck.

Or 'To set the compatibility properties for a program manually
Right-click the program icon on your desktop or the shortcut on the Start menu for the program you want to run, and then click Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab, and change the compatibility settings for your program.'

If you've installed the game successfully, XP should give you the compatability option.
