    You could try ANSI.COM, which can be loaded as required at runtime instead
    of the ANSI.SYS driver:
    http://users2.ev1.net/~mmccants/skymap66/ansi132.zip
    This usually fixes a lot of ANSI driver problems for XP/NT folks.
    
    (For the DOS impaired, this means that you don't have to load it as a
    driver with the DEVICE=/DEVICEHIGH= command in your autoexec.bat,
    autoexec.dos or autoexec.nt. You can simply put the file into your %PATH%
    or local program directory and start it from the command line, or autostart
    it from a batchfile (yes, possibly even autoexec.*). Also you can try
    loading it into upper memory by prefixing it with the "lh" command if
    you're running short on low memory.)
