    hello. ok make sure you dont have multiple antivirus programs running at once.
    make sure you have the latest video drivers for your graphics card.
    reinstall directx.
    reinstall the game. if it is a downloaded one then you may have to re-download the game or do some searching about the error codes ant go to the games website for solutions.
    also researching for the files that are said to be corrupted.
    also overclocking may have caused the problem. set the default readings for your graphics card(coreclock,memorycolck.ect...
    temps in system are good and gpu temps around 64 to 70 when playing games so its not an heat problem and all drivers are up to date but i resently brought a new mouse, a razer death adder and i have reinstalled the drivers for it twice now.

  3. I had an issue with Crysis on Win7 and AVG, that it consistently crashed when I changed my settings. The problem was solved by adding the My Games folder to the exception list. This might work for you.
