Go into the config.cfg file in the DXBall2 folder. It's a text file....so open it with "Note Pad".
Set ForceWindowed = 0 to ForceWindowed = 1 It will start the game in a window.
If that helps then a small utility or some other program is interfering with DX-Ball 2.
...so check and turn off all that you can....e.g....short-cut bars, anti-virus programs, auto disc-scanners and cleaners, etc.
We've seen problems relating to these among others.
The worst offenders are utilities that speed things up, such as help organize data and fast find, etc.
Any Icon in the systray...beside the clock on the menu bar...represents a program that is running in the background. Right click and turn those off.
That should give you a start, if not a solution.
