Hi,
In connection with "that game" and my not being able to install it- I went to a friend whose chess game has no problems- copied over onto a f/d the 4 icons - came back and got as far as selecting the prgrams list in which to install it- and come up with "access denied".
Can some person tell me why this is happeneing and how to get past that.
It is possible that my inability to open the attachment of late has something to do with this
