People in the VU forums have problems like this too and the common thing is SLI. Until a full patch higher than 1.02 comes out (and not just the securom fix which seems to have fixed the game+internet issues) then it probably won't change. People who were having the issue were just alt+tabbing out from the main menu and closing it in task manager. Seems to work with no freeze.
Yes - I just read up on that method... seems like the best way - least obtrusive to the system... no cd cracks can cause more issues sometimes... I hear also moving in and out of other menus before you quit can help also... I am going to try all of the above at home soon... I needed a good excuse to leave the office early today... whew.

BTW - I do get a full lockup, but after I exit.. the mouse works for 5 seconds, then LOCK. I have to hold the power button down until the machine powers off and restart... very annoying, and not great for the file system :P

check this out: from VU tech support regarding the lock after exit issue:

"With regard to the game crash while quitting, we have a work around please check if this addresses the issues.

1. Try playing the game some time.
2. Press Esc button to get to the Main menu.
3. Try hitting the keys Alt+F4.

Please check if you are able to quit the game without any crash."

we'll see if that works... hrm

I can also use leave game and then quit and that seems to work or alt-tab out and kill the process. I had the issue, then didn't have it for a while, now I have it again. Now, it's just up to me to remember to use one of the work-arounds but I still forget sometimes.

Anyway, thanks for the update and another possible work-around.
