While playing, the ball moves as though it is going to stall or the computer is about to freeze. The ball stops and goes. What is the problem? Anyone know? I am not very computer literate, so be gentle. Thanks.

It sounds like a program running in the background may be interfering.

Try windowed mode with "F7", as soon as the intro screen starts.

If that helps then you must have added a small utility or some other program that is interfering with DX-Ball 2.

...so check and turn off all that you can....e.g....short-cut bars, anti-virus programs [ McAfee has been OK for us, but Norton causes jerkiness or worse], auto disc-scanners and cleaners, etc. We've seen problems relating to these among others.

Hitting control/alt/delete in Windows 98 brings up a "close program" box that lists all open files and programs. Just don't turn off Explorer or your system will likely crash.

Let me know what you find?
