I have the same problem, hax.

Sometimes SC would crash in the first game or after 3 games later. It's so random. When it crashes I see the fuzzy colors in the screen which made game play impossible but the music is still playing in the background. When I do Ctrl+alt+del the game just totally freeze altogether. It's really annoying. The same issue is found in Windows XP Sp3 as well as Windows 7 ultimate 32bit (currently using now). I have updated nvidia Geforce drivers at 191. I tried all the methods with killing explorer, cpu affinity. I even tried it on 3 different 9800GTX cards and the same problem. I suspect it just the nvidia cards.

after updating the nvidia drivers (nforce as well as geforce drivers!) try not doing anything else - except maybe closing skype. so don't set the cpu affinity anymore or anything else, it should work then. if I set cpu affinity now to only one core, it crashes for me too. if I do nothing - except sometimes close skype - it doesn't crash at all.

unzip the files into starcraft folders, and run the gaming by using the newly added StartcraftFix.exe
Can anyone confirm if this works?

Edit: Don't use this patch, people. It gave me a bunch of errors.

Hey all,

I've tried every fix that has been posted and continue to have problems. Is there any other fixes that someone has found? I'm using a retail version of Win 7 Home Premium. Thanks in advance for any tips.
