    Please could you be more specific with the freezing part, does the menu screen load up? can you actually get onto the game?

    My best guess so far is because you are using a intergrated chipset it cannot handle the high resolutions, so try turning the texture levels down a bit, and the resolution to 800x600 or 640x480 to try and improve performance.

    It looks like you have a fresh install of Windows XP and thats good, but it doesn't look like you have the chipset drivers installed or an updated video driver installed and that ain't good.
