Crashing on Mac with recently updated graphics drivers

I'm finding when I open up the TNT puzzle and click the full screen button everything - but everything - jams. Can't even force quit.
Bug?

PC?

@armadillo314:
Which hardware do you use?

I've got an old PC, and this puzzle is slow as hell here.
But this is normal for my machine.

Suggestion for problems running FoldIt on Win7 X64 platform

Run FoldIt in Windows XP compatability mode. You may also try setting the processor affinity to a single processor.

Strange...

On the PCs with Win7 64 bit, I don't need to do that, but I run them in admin mode.

How much RAM do you use?

Right now I have only 2 gigs

Right now I have only 2 gigs because of a bad slot on my motherboard. I just remembered that he only time I thought there was a problem was when I first ran your quickmutate on the first TNT puzzle. Of course it didn't fix the problem.

I have used comparability mode a few times lately. It seems Win 7 doesn't always run 32 bit code reliably on a x64 platform, especially pre-Vistaware.

frequent crashes

Foldit crashes every 0-5 minutes at different stages (start up, during mouse clicks, keyboard hits for "shake it up", everywhere).
I've tried uninstalling and installing again, but doesn't help.
I'm running Windows XP professional with SP2.
Any solutions? I hate to give up without actually playing it.

Have you try to use less

Have you try to use less memory with options in "undo" / "graph properties" ?

I have Win XP, SP3 and I am

I have Win XP, SP3 and I am having the same problem. Everytime I try to do anything, it just crashes. Did not really have the chance to play it.

I have a AMD Athlon II X2 250, 1.9Gb ram, NVIDIA GeForce 7025/nForce 630a and I really do not think it is my computer's problem that causes the breakdown, since it usually does not crash even when runnin highly demanding programs.

Really do not know the problem. Can anyone help?

frequent crashes

I keep randomly crashing once game starts within 2 minutes or less, every time I start it up. I am running windows 7 in XP SP3 compatibility mode but doesn't help. My system is Win7 x64 corei7 with 8GB RAM. Any other tips?

install or play some time and it is starting different behavior?
Did your client download updates at first start?

Frequent crashes since last update

I haven't been playing long, but Foldit didn't crash for the several weeks I played. After the last update, it's been crashing frequently but there's no real indication of a cause. It seems to happen most when I'm trying to switch to a different puzzle, but happens at other times too.

Windows XP 32bit, AMD Athalon II X3 445 processor, Radeon 4350 video card.

fold it crashing my pc

I am running AMD Athalon 3400+ 256MB RAM 256 MB Graphics card.
Freezes my pc too often for me to get far in it.
I just started playing it,(may, 26 2013).
I read it worked before update,...i never played it before the update.
Hope listing my specs and mentioning that i had the issue also will help to resolve this crashing issue.
I will check back with the games updates,..to see if its addressed and fixed.
