Windows 7: Internet checkers won't open

Internet checkers won't open

Hi everyone, I'm Joanna.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. I like the Internet Checkers. I've played it dozens of times before with no problems, but now it won't start. When I click on the Internet Checkers icon from the Start menu, it tells me,

"The application closed because an error occurred. The error's number is -2147467259 (0x80004005)."

That shows up in front of the "loading" screen while the loading screen says Starting game... . I tried exiting and restarting the Internet Checkers application, as well as restarting the computer, but it keeps doing the same thing.

I'd say I'm average with computer ability. I can't exactly take the computer apart and put it back together blindfolded, but I use it every day, and I belong to the 'computer generation'. I'll need step-by-step guidance if you tell me to do something like multiple steps in the run command, to give you an idea of my capabilities.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, jojojohnsto.

The problem is on Norton's behalf, I believe. Read this.
Alternatively, it could be something completely different. If you have Norton, try disabling it then giving it another go.

I don't have Norton. I have Zone Alarm; the problem could be there. However, it mysteriously started working again last night. I guess I'll post again if it acts up again.
