I can go into a game for 1-5mins then it says iw3mp.exe has stopped working. I have a mic plugged in. and I have tried literally everything else like going into my sound settings , restarting , reinstalling ect ect. please help.

what he is trying to say is that if you do fix it and stop it from crashing, if you try and join a pb server you will get kicked as pb is broken on windows 8.
So there really is no point in trying to find a fix for the crash.

And it might even be pb that is causing the crash in the first place.

Jacka-lacka-BOOOM!
Probably get a PC for yourself with windows 7 so you can run Cod4. Problem solved.

I do not have the win 7 disk. I heard you can run both win7 and win8 on the same computer (choosing which one you want to run at boot menu). do you think there is a cracked version of win7 that I can get to work on my pc along with win8. I brought win 7 with the pc.

Windows 8 is so new nothing supports it, there is absolutely no point in getting it.
Just stick with Windows 7 until you see games supporting Windows 8.
