What happens when you properly shutdown and restart your PC?
I reformatted my harddrive, then successfully reinstalled all the relevant drivers and software i use.
However i have encountered an unusual problem. Games install fine, and run as expected... but only once. If i shut a game down and try and restart it again, im simply faced with the '(insert game title... for example rollercoaster tycoon 3 and football manager 2005) has encountered a problem and needs to close' popup. All other software (office, macromedia, i-tunes etc) work fine.
I have reinstalled everything on my pc and even replaced the harddrive and video card, but the same error persists (game installs... plays fine.. doesnt work next time i try to open it)
its baffling me, any ideas?
