Make sure the game running in windows 7 and not XP. You can find this by going to your steam folder then to the your Metro 2033 open this folder go to the game application right click go down to properties then compabilty mode. Make sure the app not running in XP mode.

Also try doing a systems cleaning of your games files and folders using AVG PC Tuneup this will help with alot of your game problems.

I have just fixed my Metro 2033 crash. When I started Metro 2033 I got a pop up. It said something about last starting of Metro 2033 was unsuccesful, do you want to start in safe mode Yes/No. Whichever I click, it acted like it was going to start but almost imeadiatley crashed. There was the usual program not wroking do you wish to close the program type message.

It was to do with PhysX installation. Mine had got corrupted. I was sure of this because it when I checked in GPU-Z it didn't show PhysX as checked. However it appeared installed when I checked re-installing drivers and PhysX.

I identified my installed PhysX version. (Easy done.) Open Nvidia control panel > click 'Help' (up at the top) > choose 'System Information' > click the 'Components' tab. There is the PhysX version you have installed.

Then I googled PhysX. I downloaded the same version, coz mine was the latest. Clicked to install that PhysX version, "chose the remove option". (It was very fast.) Then clicked to install PhysX again, and this time installed it. (Again very fast.)

Metro 2033 - fixed.....!
