Vista hotfix fixes City of Heroes crashes
When I bought a new computer it had Windows Vista (64-bit) preinstalled. Initally when I installed and played City of Heroes/Villains on the computer I had some severe graphical issues, which were tracked down to problems in the Nvidia drivers from my graphics card. These were later fixed.
However, I have still had regular crashes when playing the game where the screen goes blank, program hangs and Vista reports that it has reset the graphics drivers. Kill the program and start it again was the only thing to do.
Now there seem that this issue might have been a Vista problem and Microsoft released a hotfix for it, which was reported in the City of Heroes/Villains forums.
