Is the game minimizing itself for some reason? Are you having other
strange problems? It may be Spyware.
Spyware, or programs that install themselves without you knowing it, have
become a real problem lately. Frequently, if your machine is acting slower
than usual, or just generally acting weird, it may because of one or many of
these programs running in the background messing things up. We have found
out that Microsoft's new AntiSpyware program to be really good at getting
rid of these things.
You can get it here:
Microsoft® Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) on the
www.microsoft.com web site.
Download it, Install it, and Run it. It will help make sure your machine
is not "infected".

Some particular Laptop with Radeon Mobility graphic chips may have a problem
running SCRABBLE and SCRABBLE Blast in that they "time out" after around 20
