  1. When i try to load Star Wars: Battlefront i get the following error message during the loading screen:

    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

    Buffer Overrun Detected!

    Program:...star Wars Battlefront\Gamedata\Battlefront.exe
    A Buffer Overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.

    I have run adaware and spybot in safe mode and deleted all the files it finds. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the game about 3 times with the same result. I'll attach a copy of my hijack this log.

    Are you overclocking the pc?

    does your pc meet or exceed the sys. req.?

    PC Name?

    Why would you want to know my pc name?

    Anyway, i ran my antivirus software and reinstalled the game and it is working now.

    Thanks for the answers though. :)

    Because I found an article stating that if you use a long name (31+ characters), it can cause the problem you were having.

    this same thing is happening to me. Ive run my virus scan (mcafee) and have also run adaware & spybot. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game several times, then deleting any folders left over. Any other ideas?
