I have a problem with Pharaoh's Tomb in XP. I can play the game, but only once. After that one time, the game will act like it's going to load but it doesn't and all I get is a black MS-DOS window which says Inactive at the top of it. What could the problem be?

I presume that you can only play the game once for each system boot?

Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del once after quitting the game and see if there's any sign of it still running under either Applications or Processes. If it is then select it and "End..." the task or the process. The game should then restart normally.
