I have no write to really post anything concerning this but hey, I will add my two cents..


Shut the **** up.... Hacking = Losers ( sorry for all that do ). I agree with KnowledgeWorker if you had taken the time to read the posts you would have determined that hacks are not the issues. Now please, don't blame good players that they hack just because you suck.

I wish you all read the posts.

Chaos Launcher is already on this board as an option, though it is my personal preference not to use it because it "has a false positive", and in my book, false positives don't exist. But that's just me.

There is a window 7 patch out there (under optional, not recommended) that supposedly fixes the problem. My friend has home basic and it fixes the problem, but however, it still freezes on 7 Ultimate, which is what I have. Well, not that it matters soon, Starcraft II is coming out, and I'm having fun with that

I found what causes the freeze: READ CAREFULLY

I discovered that Starcraft:Broodwar freezes becouse of Skype,
Turn if off completly and you should be fine to play.
If you have problems contact me on skype:emil.popov3 (i can speak English)
And we can play some games.
I hope this will help you :P

No it does not,
using skype while playing sc only makes sc freeze much much faster.

I agree completely. Odd thing is, the more programs you close, the longer the play time is before the freeze. You can's say one particular program is the cause, the problem is somewhere in the Windows 7 System, because in Vista, it didn't freeze.

yeah sorry but thats bullshit.

Any application can cause a false positive.

many applications flag a warning on packed executables because of the compression techniques making the header harder to interpret.

also any application which hooks anothers functionality, such as a trainer or an extender utility like the starcraft widescreen tool will flag as trojan/loaders

Look at this

Ok the tip with skype was wrong,but i found how to fix the freeze for good,
READ CAREFULY
First start Sc:broodwar, then using ctrl+alt+del go to the taks manager menu,then click show processes from all users,then find the starctaft.exe right click on it,and Set Affinity make it to use only The cpu 0,and make other active programs to use the CPU 1 (like bitcomet,skype,msn,wmplayer,realtek,your antivirus).
When you do it you will be able to play whole day (Tip:you have to make this every time you boot windows,it takes maximum 2 minutes).Look at this pictures i made,Hope this make it easier for you.All the best,enjoy SC

No. That tip only works on Vista, and is only for unpatched starcraft/broodwar without the idle cycles setting.
