SOLVED: Crashes at 'Greece - St. Francis Folly' 'Atlas' (see answer #2)
I can't get past 'Greece - St. Francis Folly' 'Atlas' without a crash.
When I try to shoot at the two switches which release the globe of Atlas or when the globe rolls down TR:A freezes and crashes.
TR:A crashed a lot in the default configuration (like TR:L did), but after disabling 'fullscreen effects' TR:A crashes only once an hour (TR:L never crashed again).
That's OK for me, but at this point of the game the crashes come so often, that continuation of the game is prevented.
Steam Overlay is disabled too.
Changing DEP (Data Execution Prevention) doesn't change a thing.

Sure, I could search for a saved game after that, but I'd like to play that level by my own.

never mind:
just got past this section.
In 'Tomb Raider: Anniversary Setup' I turned everything off.
I got past this section. In 'The Coliseum' I got a short freeze and ...
... after a while the game crashed again.
So my last changes to setup didn't solve the crashes but I could finish 'Atlas'.
So I restored my last configuration and I'm hoping to have these crashes only once an hour so I can keep playing this amazing game.

I think, I've solved the problem.
I've had more crashes at 'Mida's Palace'. So I had to look how to get rid of that problem.

In 'NVIDEA Systemsteuerung' (NVIDEA Driver Tool ?)
> 3D Einstellungen (3D-Settings ?)
> 3D Einstellungen verwalten (manage 3D-Settings)
I created a new entry for TR:A and changed the entry 'Multi-Display/gemischte GPU-Beschleunigung' (multy display/ mixed GPU-acceleration ?) to 'Einzel-Display-Leistungs-Modus' (single display performance mode ?)

I could play over an hour without any crash.
So that seems to have solved the problems.
