Bioshock 2 crash

I installed Bioshock 2 on my pc (original DVD) and I patched it to the last version.
When i'm playing, after 2, 5 or 10 minutes the game freezes and a Windows' message appears: "Bioshock 2 has stopped working, (...)"

I have a C2D E6300 @1.86 GHz, 3 GB RAM, PNY GTS 450 (1 GB GGDR5, driver 295.73) and an ASUS P5LP-LE mobo.
OS: Windows 7 SP1 32bit

The game crash in both DX9 and DX10 mode.

all other games work fine in DX9, DX10 and DX11 mode.

How can I fix it?

I reinstalled the game and I patched it to the last version with Games For Windows Live client. Then I started a new game, and i got a crash. I went to My Documents\Bioshock 2 and I deleted all files in this folder. After this, i restarded Bioshock 2 and it doesn't crash.

It is a Game For Windows Live client bug.
