    during the last races i suffer from a freeze problem. every time i make a race atleast at one point the screen freezes for some seconds. i didn't have this problem in the past in gtl. i have the latest drivers instaled and also set down the video card settings to no effect.
    do you have this problem too? were you able to solve it?
    looking fwd to your ideas.

    I've never had freezing problems, but PM Warren.
    He was having issues with both GTL and GTR-E at one stage. I assume he's gotten his issues fixed as I haven't heard of him having anymore freezes lately.

    Hope you can get it fixed mate :)

    Yep, I've been getting the problem regularly with both GTRE and GTL.
    And I haven't found a fix yet, it is very random. Often I can race a full race with no freezes, and then "bam' out of nowhere. I even had a GTL freeze this week while practicing off-line.
    I've tried many things based on advice from several forums, but no solution yet.
    Very frustrating.

    thank you aii for the replies. fingers crossed i solved the problem. i did a pc check and found out that a file called msvcr71.dll is corrupted. this file is part of the internet connection within the windows program system32.( for xp)/ did some google search and found out that if this file is corrupted it will cause problems with the internet connection and lower frame rate because the pc is working too hard.
    i downloaded the file and installed it over the corrupt one. so far it solved my problem.
    warren maybe, just maybe this is your problem too.
    therer for i attach some links to the sites from which i learned about the problem and the site i downloaded the file from:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/186248-31-cant-launch-game-msvcr71-found

    hope it helps in someway.
    cheers,

    Thanks Amir, I'll certainly check it out. However, my problems occur off-line as well as on-line, so it is doubtful that is my issue.
    How did you know it was corrupted??
