    Did you re-start your PC when you took off the normal Civ 3? it could still have something clashing??
    Check program files and see if the old file is there that once had the the first civ in.

    Test the CD in another computer drive if you can.. if you can't take off CIV Complete, restart your PC and try again.

    If it still don't work, the best option could be to install windows XP, looks after games more, but uses more memory. Let me know what happens:D i still have some ideas:D
