I have run into a very irritating problem this evening... I have the game 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas', and I play it quite frequently on my computer. However, I was doing some research on increasing system performance in Windows 7, and this one individual suggested that I try Gamebooster
to speed my game play up a bit. It looks legitimate, and I have read many places that it is a trusted tool. I opened the program and attempting running the "Game defrag" on GTA. My game has not run since then. I have uninstalled Game Booster, restored my registry, and done everything in my knowledge of how this particular game works, attempting to fix the problem. I also have reinstalled the game 4-5 times, all in different directories, hoping it would change something. Nothing seems to be solving my problem. I have look high and far for a solution, unfortunately I've had zero luck. So here I am, in Seven Forums, hoping that one of you may have a suggestion considering every issue I've thrown at this lovely forum has been solved within an hour.
When I attempt to launch the game, my cursor turns into the disc icon as if it is attempting to load the game, but nothing happens. When I monitor the processes in my task manager and attempt to start the game, it seems as if it tries starting two processes, which is odd. If I hurry and close one of these processes (hoping that the other was simply getting interference from the extra process), my cursor STAYS a disc until I restart my computer. (Which is extremely annoying.)
As experienced with GTA games as I am, I'm stumped. Time to ask the pro's
Also, I've asked this same question elsewhere, and most of the replies were simply people accusing me of using a pirated version of the game, this is not so. And proof:
Thank you in advance,
Edit: I'm not entirely sure if I'm allowed to discuss this here, but I've tried 'No CD' cracks that have worked for me in the past, so it's not the disc causing the problem.
