Will this ever get fixed?

Random audio stutter then TF2 screen minimises and then I cant get back to the TF2 screen and have to end task. Ridiculous problem thats been happening for a long time and I am not the only one. I've tried all so called "fixes" but really they are just guesses because nobody "REALLY" knows do they.

The commonality is the fact I am running Win7 64bit and all others who have reported this problem have the same OS. No other game crashes this way. Its a TF2 thing

I have the same bloody problem! It only started about 2 weeks ago, the audio stutters and the damn game minimises, then crashes when I try to use it again. I have Win7 premium 64bit and it just keeps happening. I JUST WANT TO PLAT TF2!!!!!!!

Yep same here, I thought it was windows 8 being on an SSD hard drive. The game crashed on me 3 times yesterday. Sometimes it doesnt crash or freeze for days worth of playing. It is very annoying.

If I got new hardware everytime a software company fudged their code I wouldn't have any money left to buy food.

I fixed this by setting TF2 to use DX8.....♥♥♥♥ing ridiculous!
valve have massively gone downhill, i doubt i will be spending any more money with them, thats a guarantee

its from W7 100% sure i have played tf2 on my 7 year old pc with no problems that had XP

Ok I'm 100% certain I've found the root cause of the problem. I've unticked "Use glowing effect" in multiplayer advanced options.

This option is the wallhack technology that valve introduced for objectives recently and obviously didn't do sufficient testing and placed that responisibility on me, the customer

I can now play the game using DX9.
