Many games do not work on my computer, with XP installed. The error is always something which says, "The instruction at [some address] referenced memory at [another address]. The memory could not be read.

I am sure there is nothing wrong with my hardware, since this only comes with a couple of programs. What can I do to correct this?

in my experience (and at this hr you have to take my word w/a grain of salt) it means that the software was built for the win 9x kernal and xp is based on the nt kernal (kernel?)

Well, I format my vintage notebook and installed 98... also added XP on a separate partition just in case. The programs work perfect in 98!!

Funny that you are using programs which still requires 98..!

I used to have a 98 boot partition just to play Command & Conquer

The only thing I like about XP, is the generic Plug & Play drivers for virtually all electronics. Otherwise, my XP looks like Windows 98.. stripped off all the effects and visuals.

I do the same thing, with windows server 2003 as well. It's actually the 1st thing on my checklist when installing a new server.

I actually like the visual styles of XP...better than Windows 98.

I can understand doing that on a server since no one bothers about the look and feel as long as the work is done.
