Something has been added to your system's start up routine.

Check under Start, Programs, StartUp. If there's anything there you don't need o ...

Yep. Blood used the Build engine. But like Shadow Warrior it was ported by 3dfx to run in glide.

I'm trying to run the 3dfx version of Monolith's Blood on a Voodoo2. The 3dfx patch was written for a Voodoo Graphics (Voodoo 1) card.

If you're running FAT32 then you should try a boot (floppy) disk. Most of them come with everything already configured except your DOS sound drivers (which will be particular to your system). If you ...

Try deleting the zips and then emptying your Internet Cache (Control Panel, Internet Options, Temporary Internet Files, Delete Files) and then redownload the zips.
