Game seems to run fine while playing....but....when I hit either the "exit" or "x" button when trying to exit the game back to windows my computer stops responding with about half the desktop drawn. After waiting a few minutes I can press ctrl-alt-del and find that explorer is no longer responding. I can end the task, and the computer starts responding although some task tray programs that I need are no longer running. I tried disabling all startup programs using msconfig, but I still have the same problem when exiting.

My computer specs are as follows:

Dell 866Mhz,
60 GB HD
256 MB Ram
Nvidia TNT2 64 video card (latest drivers from Nvidia)
SB Live Value sound card
32X CD Rom
Windows ME
Internet Explorer 6
Direct X 8.1 (all tests run sucessfully)

Anyone have any thoughts? I have asked Lucas Arts, but have not had a reply yet.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing, but same problem continues.....

After much messing around, I found that going back to IE 5.5 SP2 from IE 6 fixed the problem.

Has anyone heard of IE 6 causing problems? I would think that would make everyone using Windows XP have problems - but what do I know?
