Guys

Can anyone explain this crash, both games just freeze up after a short time and a yellow warning icon appears on the Systray?

Yup - many times, did all the latest drivers, Vista updates, praying, crying etc., etc.

The only way round this problems has been to dual boot to an old drive with XP running.

I had that problem with my old computer, it's a component of your computer (the graphics card likely) that failed and restarted itself.

Did your screen go black for some 20sec or so before coming back on the desktop with that icon in the tray ?
