    I would uninstall it and download it fresh from Steam.

    It could be a compatibility problem due to video or sound drivers, I would suggest a clean install of both ,, a good way is this ., open control panel, uninstall drivers ( video ,sound ) restart to safemode, run driversweeper ( free at guru3d.com) analyze and clean for drivers, restart , install new drivers one at a time restarting in between ,, if that doesn't work then find the games executable and try changing the compatibility mode.

    Of course, when you pirate a game it is not unusual for glitches to appear. If and when they do, you are on your own.
