Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Set your CPU to the stock frecuency and try again, also, remember that Win 7 is a new OS, so, some games could need a patch or update to run well.

I think that problem because your 64bit Win7...
I'm currently use win7 32bit, Call of Duty modern warfare, PES 2010 and Street fighter IV runs very well, don't know about manhunt and 18 wheels of steel extreme...

Install DX9 an try with this, if the games work, install DX10 and try again, if doesn't work rollback to DX9.

I can run any games on 7 x64 without problems.

This can help you, BUT do a restore point before delete the key of the regedit.

By default after the reboot, Win XP must install DX9, if this not happen, you can download here

I found out what the problem was... I reinstalled 'Modern warfare' to the default folder which is in Program files X86. However my hardrive is partitioned the drive that the game is now on is close to full is there any way around installing the other games to the hard drive which has on Program files x86?

You can buy another HDD and spanned your currect HDD to the new, or spanned in one HDD that you have.

^if you second partition have all the space available, you can use it. O delete files and programs that you don't use.
