Also there was an issue regarding the Soundblaster Audigy 7 drivers and cabal that caused the crash (on win7 and on xp it had such a horrible slowdown and game crash) so if your using that type of sound card look into updates for the driver or change the card (i changed mine and all was good) I had submitted this problem to OGP help desk but who the hell knows if they forwarded it to EST lol but try this if you have that type of card try removing it and seeing how that goes
