Downloaded Alpha 3.0

After double-clicking on the executable, a console show up and the program ran.
The wierd thing was, after execution, all i could see was the Geoscape.

I moved the mouse around, after a while i did not notice any movement at all. It is then i realised a green dot. Also it appears to be very slow because, when i move my mouse, the green dot will teleport somewhere else on the screen after several seconds.

Is this normal?

Including with this message is an attachment of my computer's readout

You may also wish to try the steps I gave Mikker when he had a similar problem in the link above.

Take your time and submit a name to the Names Database.
