game stopped working

I recently bought Democracy 2 and appreciate the game very much. However, after two weeks of playing, I can no longer get into the game. I get an application error when I try to launch it. MacAfee recently sent out an update and I did redownload Adaware from Lavasoft. Could there be a conflict with these programs? If so, what do I do to resolve it?

Have you installed any mods recently? What is the exact error?

definitely worth doing a system restore to back before you installed those programs. The games code does not change, so it must be something you changed, patched or installed after the event.
