yes, I did exactly as it was said, including deleting all the things about GoW in registry... gotta try the solution with disabling UAC

it seems that there's no such an option like UAC in win7... as far as wiki says: User Account Control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

but frankly, never used that before, so maybe someone smarter would tell me how to reach it in win7

finally found the solution for this problem... and this solution seemed to be pointless at the begining, but eventually that was the only one left -> go back in time to the year I bought the game... that is 2008. I simply set the date exactly 2 years ago and game got no problems with starting anymore.

but thanks for attention and support you have provided people

Type UAC into the start menu and choose options for adjusting it. Did that actually work?

got no idea what else to do...
you have to put the original "startup.exe" file (Not cracked one!) into your "gears of war/bineries" first. after that run the "GearsPC_TU3_Microsoft.exe" . this can help you to install the patch but it does't guarantee that you can play the game. after that you have to put the "startup.exe" (This time the cracked one that you can find it in the net and download it) in the mentioned directory. I have done all of these steps in WinXP and it worked but in 7 !! I am as same as you If you find any solution please tell me too

Lag issue Gears of war (Windows)

I play this game on windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and the only issue i have is accessive lag during gameplay even playing single player other than that the game runs fine

I was wondering if there is a way to run the game in compatability mode for an older OS

I also play Diablo 2 on the same computer and noticed that it runs almost flawlessly when i run it in compatability mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
