Anyone else stuck in windowed mode? The first time I started the game it was fine, but after changing the resolution, now it will only go into windowed mode? No matter what I change, even putting it back to default settings, it still starts and stays in windowed mode, its pissing me off.

Strange as in the last 3 years of use, building over 100 rigs & installing AVG on all of them i've never seen a problem, unless i go to dangerous places on the web, enable dubios 3rd party browser extensions, use firefox or download ****e that i shouldn't i never see a problem, neither do my clients as they are all educated the same way.

I must be the lucky one

a little performance review:

1280x1024 4xAA 16xAF max in game settings DX9. i tried 1600x1200, but it felt a little too slugish. at 1280x1024 i get 33-60 fps. average is aroun 45-50.

now,have a look at my rig and let me know if that sounds about right? i'm thinking SLi isn't working maybe. im probably expecting too much. my cpu is holding me back no dought.

Just in case people are wondering, yes a bunch of posts were deleted because of trolling.
