Right click on the Icon of the problem program in the pop up select Properties


In the properties window click on the Compatibility Tab
Put a check in the "Run this Program in Compatibility Mode For" box.
Select the OS the program was written for from the list.(Usually XP SP 3 will work). For older programs you may need to select 256 colors and/or 640x480 resolution.



Put a check in the "Run this Program as an Administrator" box.
