[GameTalk] Re: pipe2 problem

Oh, she did try reinstall, but shortly after it happened again.
Macafee is probably one of the worst virus scanners I know of, not from 
experience but from what other people have said, most of whom know more 
about computers and have more experience than I do. Whether it really is or 
not, I don't know, I am just saying what others have said. I use Avast 
because of the sound alerts, and it's ability to automatically take care of 
things all by itself.
So, back on topic, I had the same problem myself, and reinstalled the game 
and it works for the time being.
