  1. Since the last patch the game freezes for me right after I select my guy and am about to enter the world. It always takes a little bit for it to load up, but now it stays frozen for at least 10 minutes. (I haven't waited any longer.) I have an ATI Radeon 9700 with the catylyst drivers. They were the latest up until a few days ago, now there is a newer kind. I'm always leary of updating drivers, but should I do that? Since other players were playing before the newest drivers came out I don't think this will solve the problem, but will it? Another possible cause to my problem is my anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Pre-patch, I just shut them all off, and everything worked ok, but now of course its freezing. I have AVG anti-virus, spyware guard, and Comcast's security manager, but I turn all of those off, and I make sure that spyware guard is completely disabled, so I don't think this is the problem. Here are my specs: Pentium 4 2.66 ghz ATI Radeon 9700 512 mb DDR SDRAM 10 gb free on the hardrive WIN XP home edition w/ service pack 1 (service pack 2 was not letting me play before, so I removed it months ago.) Thanks for any help guys
  2. It freezes in the practice mode as well, I just checked. So at least it isn't a connection problem. When it freezes it locks up the entire computer, I have to turn off the computer manually, ctrl alt del does nothing. Btw I have the setting set for highest performance. What should I try now?
  3. I keep having a virus pop up that AVG anit-virus can't heal. I've run hitman pro, which initially helped, and I did a full virus scan with AVG virus, but this thing keeps popping up as C:\DOCUME~1?SCOTTE`1\LOCALS\1\Temp\cfg`4.tmpcfgmgr 52\bbi2.exe AVG anti virus calls it a "trojan horse downloader.small.30L This thing always pops up after I have done the scans and I think everything is ok. After it pops up I try to heal it, but AVG can't do it, and then all the annoying popups start to happen, most numerous is aurora. I'm really concerned about this because a few days ago many .dll files were deleted and windows would not start, causing me to go through Dell technical support and repairing windows. After running hitman, and AVG anit-virus, I though things were ok, but obviously they are not. If I call Dell it will cost me to go through their virus help support. Can anyone recommend anything that I can do? Is there another free anti-virus program that will help? Should I purchase the famous Norton Aniti-virus?
  4. Thanks for the help, but how do I backup my important files? Do I need to buy a zip disc thing, or is there a way to back it up on the computer itself? How do I reformat the hardrive? Is this really necessary?
  5. Below is the log from the Hijack this program. Despite using various anti-spyware and virus removers, I still get the annoying aurora ads, and there are other problems which may be causing WWII online to disconnect. Could anyone please tell me which programs on this log are bad and should be removed. Thanks.

  6. Thanks a bunch Del, hitman worked. No more aurora, or virus messages, or error messages. This is awesome! I owe you a beer.
