Default Please Help!!!

About a week ago, I attempted to install Tiger Woods 2006 onto my computer. The game installed ok, but when I started to play it, the game would stop and disappear. Later that week, everytime I would try to install a new program onto my computer, I would get errors with the installations. Then, my computer started shutting down by itself with fatal system errors. I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled my operating system.

After installing my operating system again, my computer was fine until I decided to install Tiger Woods 2006 again thinking that it would be ok. Well, I got the same error messages as before and today my computer started shutting down again by itself with the fatal system errors.

Do you guys think it is a problem with the Tiger Woods game, or is it a problem with my hard drive?

I think it is weird that my problems only started after I tried to install the Tiger Woods game.

Is there any way to fix fatal system errors without reinstalling my operating system?

I was just surfing around a little bit about this particular game, And I found that there are some problems with it, but nobody knows how to fix them... hrmmmm, If I were you I would keep that game off of your machine.... If you have another machine you can use, pop the game on that and see what happens to that machine.
