    I recently re-installed Star Wars Battlefront I (PC) due to update problems which i couldnt address.

    The re-installation when smoothly but, when the game starts to load an Error Box Appears.
    Entitled, "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Libary". It says that "Buffer Overrun has been detected" with the program Star Wars Battlefront/Gamedata/Battlefront.exe.

    It goes onto say that, "A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safley continue execution and must now be terminated".

    I click Ok and Battlefront terminates, when i start the game up again this still happens.

    I have ran Spyware and Virus scans as i have never come accross this problem before.



    Thanks for your time, any help is appreciated

    If you disconnect connection to the internet do you still get this error?

    If the problem goes away I suggest going to the networking and security portion of this forum and post there.

    If your using an AMD64 or intel processor that has buffer overrun protection it is doing it's job. Sounds like you have something nasty on your system.

    The error box still appears when connections have been disconnected.....

    I doubt my intel pentium 4 has buffer overrun protection becuase it is an ageing model..

    thanks,

    UPDATE: Just after shutting down my computer the blue screen of death decided to make an appearance, if this has any relevance at all
