Have you tried setting compatibility mode accordingly; if it is turbo C+ from windows 3.0 you would probably be best setting it's compatibility to windows 95, run as admin, disable advanced text services and disable visual themes

It would also be a good idea to set your theme to "classic"
Hopefully these hints will help, as it appears the root of the problem is that the computer is booting into full graphics mode - whereas 'Safe' mode only loads a minimalistic interface

Hopefully if you play around and tweak the settings you should get it to run ok
Hope that this helps!

You can't anyway run Turbo C++ 3.0 in full screen mode under Windows 7 since a DOS/Win 3X application is not allowed any more to set that mode under Vista or Seven.

Graphic mode in legacy Borland applications is limited to VGA mode (640x480) so forcing full screeb under NT environments. Here why you can run that in safe mode only, because the emetgency startup runs as VGA interface.

The way to workaround is to download from Microsoft MS Virtual PC (free), setup a virtual machine with DOS as guest OS and install Turbo C++ inside the virtual environment.

You can get a free DOS from www.freedos.org, an Open Source clone of MS DOS.
The process requires a bit of work but it is not hard and satisfaction is full. That way your graphic applications run in a window as other Seven programs.
