Check SYSTEM and APPLICATIONS. At this point, clear both files (lists) you can do this in the upper right FILES section.

Find and run a VIDEO DRIVER CLEANER. Then re-install the latest drivers.

Do a complete uninstall of TDS from the ADD/REMOVE. When that is done run a SEARCH for any TDS reference and DELETE IT. Run a Regseeker or cleaner program.

Then re-install and try again.

If the drivers for the VCARD don't seem to work, run the VIDEO CLEANER again and install your next choice of drivers.

After EACH attempt at any of the listed "tweaks", if it fails: CHECK THE EVENTS.

CHECK: SYSTEM>DEVICE MANAGER for any large yellow ! and make sure the device mentioned is operating properly.

Then replay (or try to the game). As soon as it crashes, look at EVENTS. There will be a RED X marking the error that crashed you, or a Yellow warning sign.

A right click on the line will give you more information as to what specifically caused your problem. There will also be a numerical error code. You can GOOGLE that code and get more information.

Do a search for "dual core". That may be your problem. For a start, set affinity of the Thief process so it runs on only one processor. Good luck, and please report back with your solution if you find one.

thanks Peter your suggestion worked. ran the game, then pressed the window key and then changed the affinity. and then had to click on the process again, select bring to front to get it back to fullscreen again.
