This is a strange problem. it was working fine one day, then the next day when I fired up BF1942/FH, I found that when the initial menu screen pops up, when I move the mouse to one of the buttons (like multiplayer), the program just quits to the desktop. The day before I had changed the name of the movies directories so I wouldn't have to sit through them, I'm getting really sick of waiting. BUt the game seemed to work fine after doing that. I also installed a program, cuseeme. Eventualyl, I uninstalled everything, deleted the EA folder, and tried to remove any bf1942 references from the registry that I could. Then I reinstalled, applied the 1.6 patch, then installed FH again and still it crashes. I'm probably going to reinstall the OS in the next week, but I was wondering if anybody had any ideas as to what could be causing this and what solutions there might be.

BTW you can delete the movies in the folder completely with no ill effects. Just leave the empty folder there. As far as the crashing, I have no idea. Does Vanilla BF or any other mods crash too?

to be honest, I only sort of checked before I installed the 1.6 patch when I re-installed, and it didn't seem to crash when my mouse went over the buttons. I didn't test again until FH was installed.
