Whenever EAW starts up, it gets to the first opening screen that just shows the game title and other little stuff, and then the game suddenly closes. How do I fix this? I've never had this problem before.

Sound like corrumpted files, only thing to recommend would be to reinstall your game.

What about your computer? Have you changed anything (hardware or software wise) since the last time the game worked? What OS do you have?

The virtual memory paging file (or whatever it's called) was increased, and we've downloaded a few little extra security programs.

OS is Windows XP.

Maybe that's the problem. Try letting Windows manage virtual memory by themselves instead of adjusting it manually.

Be carefull with downloading "security" files cause some security programs are so messed up that they quarantine programfiles that you need to make EAW work. I once had one that quarantined all dll files even though i had told that security program not to do that.

Really? I didn't know that. What kind of security programs have you downloaded, RGC?

VipreRescue, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, ATFCleaner, and just today we got SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition. The virtual memory paging file was increased because a tech guy suggested we increase the file to get rid of constant "Windows has run low on virtual memory" bubble messages. After that, the tech guy's been giving us all the programs above as part of the never-ending quest to get this computer running right. Of course, the computer's been running worse ever since we first called him. I figured it had something to do with messing with the virtual memory file.

Perhaps they're interfering with each other. You might consider getting rid of some and leaving only one, maybe two.

How much RAM do you have anyway? [QUOTE=redgroupclan;5470558]After that, the tech guy's been giving us all the programs above as part of the never-ending quest to get this computer running right.
Seems to me he gave you too much. [QUOTE=redgroupclan;5470558]Of course, the computer's been running worse ever since we first called him. I figured it had something to do with messing with the virtual memory file.

Do what I suggested above and let Windows manage it by themselves. That's how I keep virtual memory settings on my computer and I have never heard so much as a peep from Windows about it.
