Yeah, if you have any iTunes bought movies, under one of the top window bar things (I think it's the store one), there's a deactivate/activate thing. Apple limit you to having five computers registered with the same account and therefore able to play the same media. If you just have music, no worries, but if you have bought apps, movies or tv shows, you will probably want to deactivate iTunes. It got a real pain for me, as two of my windows installs got viruses that messed the computer up completely, so I have two non-existent registered computers.

I have GTA 3 on windows 7 64 bit and it runs perfectly. try compatibility mode, run as admin, and update ur directx and video card drivers. I have the retail version. When I downloaded in the past (not going to say where), the audio was all messed up.

I've downloaded it, back in the days I had a legal copy of GTA III but I lost the disc and serial. Not going to buy it twice.

does iTunes really have such thing? I bought my iPod Touch in february, it's a great device but so lame all great apps aren't free and iTunes is so crap... I bought the iPod with pain in my heart as I'm an Apple hater, but I needed a decent music player with WiFi and the Touch was the only decent device with WiFi so I had no choice.
downloaded from what website?

iTunes 5 computer limit can be reset once per year. If you already have 5 computers on the account and try to add another, it will prompt if you want to clear the list (once per 12 months). Even then I noticed if I saved the iTunes Media Library metadata files, it didn't prompt me to reactivate the computer :S

thanks for the info, wasn't aware of that. that's made my view of Apple a little better, as I was always worrying reaching the limit, thanks

I downloaded it via bittorrent so I'm not going to spread it here as it's against the rules. But I tried the GTA III version I downloaded on another PC here and it works on that one.

It's gotta be something with my laptop. I will be formating it today.

Good luck
It's always a shame to format, but the speed of a non-cluttered system always makes up for it.

Well yeah.

So guys, I formatted my computer (I had an image of my old clean Windows 7 installation on a harddrive somewhere). Guess what... GTA III works and Aero works.

So my problem is (currently, I hope permanently) solved.

Congratulations!
It's a fun game, hope you have many happy hours with it. Well done on it getting aero to work with GTA3 working as aero is always hard to get working. For me it either does or doesn't, and their solution centre never fixes it
