DDHELP.EXE has crashed your system you suck hahah! Or something like that is the error I get while flying in Allegience. I know it's a direct draw utility from Microsoft, I've even reloaded all my sound and video drivers upgraded to DX 8. Same problem. Anyone with a fix?
Thanks for takeing the time!

I had that problem. What really fixed it for me was to download a new set of drivers for my motherboard's chipset (VIA). That did the trick for that error. Having the latest component drivers is the 95% (of the time)solution.
