PC SHUTS DOWN WITH CD SOCCER GAMES

Hello people. Please help me out here. I have a cd which has a soccer game. This game is meant to be loaded and played on a pc. This sounds like graphics to me, am I right? Now the problem is this: when the game is loaded onto the pc and play starts, the pc just shuts itself down, each time. This happens on a pc running Win XP but on a pc running WIN Me it does not happen. Why is this so? How can I fix it? Is there a virus stuck onto the cd? I look forward to a fix folks. Thanx

I think it maybe because the game is not designed for XP, have you checked on the packet for compatibility? Fortunately in XP, this does not matter, if you select the shortcut from where you click to open the game, right click > Properties > Compatibilty and choose the Compatibility Mode that the game was designed for ie, ME.

Also check on the packet for system requirements.
