Mass Effect 2 Crashing on startup.
★★★★ Novice

I have been replaying the Mass Effect Trilogy on my PC (Windows XP Pro).I got half way through Mass Effect 2 when the game stopped working.

The game launches and when the screen comes up and I press a key to continue,that is when the game crashes.It says,"Mass Effect 2 has encountered a problem and needs to close."When I click on the report,this is what pops up:Error Signature AppName me2game.exe   Modver 8.0.50727.3053

                                                                                                                                  AppVer 1.2.1604.0 Modname msvcr80.dll

                                                                                                                                   offset 00015108

(There is a longer technical report but I can't copy and paste it.I hope the above information is enough).


I have tried multiple times to uninstall and reinstall the game and origin and different combinations.I restarted the computer and tried a system restore to a few days before the problem occured,but nothing works.Mass Effect 1 and 3 run with no problems.(As do a few other games I have).I appreciate any help with this.
