- Regularly defragment your hard drive.

and at least 64 MB of RAM. The drivers for your graphic card must support

If you are experiencing sound abnormalities such as clicking and popping,

Panel, Sound, then find the sound/audio hardware acceleration setting and

The demo is fun but you're right Joshua, the sentry gun is a little insane with it's 360 degree area of death. Even if they enemy only get hurt a little they still lose their turn. Maybe they'll change it in the full game so it can only shoot in the direction you're aiming when you place it.
