<Sorry this took so long.>
<I talked to my tech guy, at first he though that your computer was bogged down with programs, but you said "However, i recently did a clean install of Windows 7." so he thought that it might be about processor power, but as you said, the game worked just fine on a lesser processor.>
<My tech guy says that he can't help you.>
<There are two reasons for this, the first being that he can't actually see your computer, the second being that he can't bring himself to care about it, being that you are a stranger.>
<Sorry about that.>

It's ok :( I've lost hope myself...

But on a semi-side note, how detrimental can installing a lot of games (like say 10) get? Is it something to do with the hard drive filling up? or simply about programs being "installed"?
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand Binary, and those who don't. Now 1/4th a Computer Scientist (or Computer Science Engineer, depending on my mood), i can safely say i fall into the first category.
