Oh my god.

My game is totally broken now!

Downloaded the windows live update, installed, then restarted my machine, now the main menu just WONT load. Tried restarting many times, running in admin mode etc. suicidal.gif suicidal.gif I've never ever had a problem with this game... ever... until now.

How could Microsoft release an "update" for Windows Live that sucks so bad?

I've changed the title of the topic to prevent confusion, this obviously isn't an update to GTA 4 but an update to windows live. I have to say I am not impressed with this, I had the game running beautifully and now I have pretty bad stuttering. I am beginning to wonder if the real culprit for all the problems that people are having is actually down to games for windows live.

Ah well I guess the first mod I ever use will be the xliveless mod.
