You got WinXP? If so, right click the Desktop shortcut, go to Compatability tab, and disable Visual Themes. I would suggest you get either the 534B or 534C patch, they include the DirectX 9 fix.

yes, god yes.. The stock game is sooooooooooooooo buggy, and although the patches didn't fix all the problems, they DEFINATELY help.

this game was made when DX9 was still 8.1 so the newer version conflict with newer version an XP SP2 has destroyed sfc3
I've got XP SP2 on my new computer, and got SFC3 to work with a breeze. What I did was....... well, I think I'll make a thread about all the troubles with compatability and have someone sticky it......
ok i hear you but i'm new to these name where on the desktop do i find this shortcut cause i not finding the tab you mention
I meant the game's shortcut......
