    I am having a problem getting the game to run. The install goes fine but when I try to start the game it starts loading then goes back to my desktop. I had the same problem with the muliplayer demo, but the single player demo worked perfectly. I never really tried to get the multiplayer demo to work but now that I have spent my hard earned cash on the game I would like to play it. I have downloaded and installed the v1.1 patch but still no luck. My video and sound drivers are all updated and my computer excceds the recommended requirments. Anybody have any idea what may be wrong?

    I had some probs with 40.41 they would only let my games be played at my desktop resolution if i set it at any other it would only fill up a small part of the screen
