There's probably a bug in your friend's program that doesn't work well with your hardware (most likely your video card). Or, when he sent you the program, he forgot to include important files?
 
Turbo C++ is like 20 years old, and so are it's graphic drivers (EGAVGA.BGI, anyone?). These drivers don't know anything about Windows, they are designed to run in plain DOS environment.

There is a chance the graphics driver on your card does not play well with emulated VGA card. Try running this program in virtual machine (VirtualBox, VmWare, VirtualPC), or in DosBox.
