So i got spore for Christmas and now its being very irritating. I have been getting this error message for about 2 days now. Ive reinstalled the game twice now. RIGHT NOW THIS THE THIRD TIME THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED. Today, when went to the programs and features thingy, spore was not in the list.

Do you use Vista?

Computers are a lot like air conditioners. Everything works fine, until you open up Windows.

I'm no expert on this stuff, but it's probably safe to assume Vista has something to do with it. Do you know what the error code means by any chance?

OH MY GOD WOW. The error has now stopped after i reinstalled the game for the 7th time. A NEW ERROR HAS FORMED.

This one is a windows vista pop up that reads "Spore has stopped working''

OMG WTF IS WRONG WITH THIS DUMB GAME?!?!?

Nothing's wrong with the game. Vista, however...
