ok i got a computer that was supost to be new about 2 years ago.

i have all ways suspected that it was refubished and i had been ripped of.

i got worms armagedon of a friend (i no its old but its cool).

and when i go to play on it it says doe snot support windows nt !!! (meaning it was refubished)

even thou i have xp pro installed as my main operating system and there is no traces of nt (that i can see)

but im more bothered about playing the game is there anyone who can help me?

I think you got the wrong impression, Windows XP is based on NT, its running NT5.1
So what that message means is that the game isn't compatible with windows XP. Especially when you said its an old game which make it obvious.
You can try to run in compatibility mode.
Hope that clarify it.
