If Windows is otherwise working normally then you are not really in DOS mode. Is this game running from a saved file or online? If it's a file and you kept the original download then uninstall it and re-install it. It it's online, or requires you to go online, then run these on your computer because it might be malware:

AdwCleaner:

(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

The above are focussed on browser malware, which AV's and even MalwareBytes often fail to detect. They are small, safe and widely used on this forum and Security websites. If they find anything please copy/paste the logs on here in case further action is necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
