i got windows 7 (32bit), with nothing but avira running.
THEN i have read this:
... -Problem on ATI cards - game is incompatible with recent drivers on most ATI cards, so an older driver is included. You can try renaming or removing atiumdag.dll in the install directory if that helps.
this helped! thanks :)
