    They all point to ati3duag.dll which is part of your video drivers.

    From HERE

    a. Check for game patches:HERE

    b. Make sure you meet the game's minimum video and system requirements;

    c. Latest DirectX from: HERE

    d. Download the latest Catalyst driver for ATI. Win XP/2000: HERE

    The latest video drivers sometime don't work with a particular game.
    Try an older (WHQL) driver, or a Beta driver, or even an Omega driver instead:

    BETA Drivers: HERE OMEGA Drivers: HERE

    Downloaded the new drivers and havn't had a problem since. Thanks for your help! Sorry for the long response time but wanted to make sure it was running well, as it was an intermitant problem.
