ddraw.dll is damaged. (uhh... i don't know how, 1 year ago its work properly and i don't have web-connection on it)

I'm no techie, but isn't D(irect)Draw.dll linked with DirectX.I therefore advise you to reinstall DirectX

that file it's the dll of direct draw... if it doesn't work, just save yourself a big headache and reinstall direct x

that's when the headaches start, one of the programs I usually have the most problems running is DirectX. One of the problems from DirectX is that you can't downgrade, I recently installed Dx9 but as it wasn't fully compatibly with my graphic driver, tried to go back to Dx8. No way josť... :angry:

Well it's mostly because my graphic card has a crappy driver probably with no support from the company anymore, but still DirectX, argh... :)

You have to manually deinstall the newer dx before you can install an older version. There are tools on the web that do that but I forgot the name, google it up. ;)

Actually... you can manually uninstall DX ... or you can download a program that do it for you..... try googling "uninstal direct x"

... my old 95 is from 1996.... (who cares, my first pc (95 too) had 120 mb and i had never problems with it)

BTW
My ME have a C:\ drive from 1.96 GB, and a F:\ drive from 38.60 GB.
(it was better if i had a C:\ drive from 38.60 GB)
