ChckDsk - it looks for lost clusters, and has an option to do a surface test (for bad disk sectors). But since you seem to do disk maintenance - probably not necessary.

Did the chkdsk anyway but it only found one bad cluster in a file totally unrelated to this game. I'm still waiting to hear back from the tech support for my anti virus to see if they can find if it's interrupting any programs but so far they found nothing wrong. I played for a good 2 hours last night and it didn't crash though. I just save often just in case.

The auto save should be saved each time you end a turn. The fact it was not doing so (no file present) seems to suggest that there is an anti-virus running the game in "sandbox" mode, or something similar.

Now, if the auto-save is being made to the proper slot, and your saves are appearing in the save games folder as well, then it could be that your anti-virus has learned to trust the game after an initial run in a sand-box mode.

I turned off my avast anti-virus "sandbox" feature since I develop programs, and it treats each recompiled EXE as a brand new program to be suspicious of. It then puts a red border round the game window and is irritating about saves etc. until you had run it the once.

I understand that. That weird save problem only happened once but the crashes still happened many times. I still haven't found any evidence that my anti virus caused any problem. I'm just saving frequently out of paranoia now. Been playing with no problems lately.

Even though I have found no evidence that my anti-virus was causing any problems with the game that is the most logical explanation so far. The crashing seems to have stopped on it's own. I have had no problems all week.
