    I purchase this CD in this site brand new but when I installed and run it, it says "Media Player Classic has stopped working. A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly.
    Windows will close the program and will notify you if a solution is available." On which I don't know what the solution is and I don't want to install anything from a third party in case I would pick up a spyware by doing so like the other review above. So I tried it to our Windows 98 computer and to my amazement, it works! The reason why I gave it a 4 star rating is because it's not readily accessible to every computer. The graphics aren't naturally in high definition but very interesting and informative. I haven't tried it in our XP if it will work.

    It's a great idea, but poorly executed

    I am teaching a physical sci co-op and thought this CD-ROM would be helpful to illustrate the lessons. I don't know if this is limited to my copy, but the audio is very distorted and completely cuts out at times. Also, I had to install Media Player Classic since it would not play on my version of Media Player. Because I had to go to a 3rd-party website to download the software, it installed spyware on my computer that I have had the dickens of a time removing. I do not think this CD-ROM assisted me in being better prepared for the lessons.
