Guild wars crash

Okay, so i have had guild wars for about two years now. great game, and i never had any problems before. but a while ago (i dont know how long... probably aroung 5-6 months) i lost internet and didnt get it back until the other night. so i booted up guild wars and it kept freezing in such a way that i could move my mouse and it would turn green when i moused over other people but the picture on the screen was frozen... i could easily fix this by minimizing guild wars then bringing it back up. it also had other various glitches, so i deleted guild wars off my comp. and re-installed it. now it works without the glitches but i still have the screen frozen-green mouse problem but only rarely. my main problem is that after anywhere between 10-20 minutes of play my computer will randomly restart on me. i will get no warning or error message the screen will just go black and the comp will reboot. what do i do about this?

What edition of guild wars should I get next?

why? one word...HEROES!
thier like henchmen but u can decide what they equip
its better than hench but not by much,

eye of the north is out now so id get that next if you want
more lvl 20 content it only opens a new area though so no new classes, but you work at titles and get new elite armours

GW2 is comming out in a year, so if you dont have a income
wait for GW2

GW's content so far is mostly overrated

ps: dont let anyone fool ya, Assassins **** bad, unles u have a specific weapon and skills setup
now if they had more armour or faster base-attack speed theyd be perty good. You will get more information in here about guild wars next.

How do i get Act of War high Treason to work on windows 7 64bit?

THIS IS THE FIX for Act of War and High-Treason

look no further, here is the solution for the memory and video memory crash. You need to go to your game location:
1- For steam users its Program Files (x86) >> Steam >> steamapps >> common >> Act of War High treason (else its the normal
Program Files (x86) >> Atari >> Act of War High treason and right click on ActofWar_HighTreason.exe and put the compatibility mode on one of the Vista.

2- Download put that .dll file in same location. Remmember to store this file for later use, since we dont know how long the link will be up and spread the massage since there are many who has trubble running this game.

Works at least on W7 Ultimate x64 sp1

Lost my keycode, but have serial number for redeeming purposes

You have to call NCsoft directly, they are tight with keycodes, but if you have the serial, thier tech support should be able to help.

My DoW won't start

Try running the game as an Administrator.

to do this, right click on the icon and select properties, then go to the compatibility tab and select it and hit okay.

If that does not work, try going back into compatibility mode and selecting run in compatibility mode and then select windows 98

Installed act of war direct action and is tells me

*install patch V1.06
*close all other programs running on the backround
*run the game with with administrator account or with administrator rights
*run the game exe with Windows XP compatibility mode (if you are running Vista/Win7)
*There are a lot of reports that this game will not like more than 3GB of RAM, so limit RAM size to 2GB by editing Win XP (boot.ini) or Vista/Win7 (bcdedit) or by removing some memory sticks
