Download hitmanpro2

It's an anti malware program.

It uses alot of engines,like ad ware,nod32 and alot more.

www.hitmanpro.nl (http://www.hitmanpro.nl)
It's a dutch site/program but the program is also in english.

It installs fully automatic,when you done installing,make sure you set the scanner right by putting on as many scanners as possible.

I couldn't find the A8N-LA but if it's like the others in that range it will have built in sound, so you may run better if you remove the asus sound drivers and download a new set from the sound chip maker (normally realtek)

my graphics card is at around 60 degrees cel.

Is that Idle or load temp?

What kind of PSU do you have?

I had a machine that would work fine for everything but the minute i loaded FC the system would freeze. Turned out to be a faulty ram stick.

Download MemTest burn the ISO to CD and boot to it, to check your ram.

I upgraded to a Pentium D 950 Pressler 3.4 gig dual processor , with a GeForce 7800 GS vid card, However ubisoft apparently has not heard of the Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Elite Pro because the game crashes , and it went down so hard due to sound problems with all set to compatibility that it corrupted the PCI.SYS file in Windows\System32\Drivers folder i had to do a repair. hence until Ubisoft gets their act togethjer it is out of this machine too much invested to risk it.However with the upgrade it ran great, Too bad they havent dealt with sound issues and it apparently doent concern them.if your game is freezing then try running on compatibility mode in sound. The sound will be out of sync but it may improve it for you .far Cry is history in mine .I will enjoy Quake 4 DooM3 and Resurrection of evil add on and Prey along with Sims 2 running at maximum graphics and no problems

What do dual core processors, ATI X1xxx and Nvidia 6 and 7 series video cards, X-Fi sound cards, physics co-processors and George Takai have in common?

Answer: None of them were out yet when Far Cry was released.

It is a testament to the game that it has outlived several harware generations. So you are right muggs, Ubisoft and Crytek never heard of the creative X-Fi when they were coding the game.
