I just recently purchased GTA3 through Steam and every time I attempt to start it the program reduces resolution then freezes. When pressing the windows key I can see a window that says: Unhandled Exception: c0000005 At address: 00630000. My computer specs are:
-Intel Core i3 2.93GHz Dual Core
-4Gb Ram
-Win7 Professional 64bit
-Nvidia GT 240

I have tried the following to fix it with no luck so far:
-Updated all drivers
-Run in compatibility mode
-Made sure the program is executed as an administrator
-Deleted all files and reinstalled
-Deleted ClientRegistry.blob from Steam folder
-Running Windows 7 Basic theme
-Running at 800x600 resolution
-Verifying game cache integrity and defragmentation through steam
-Moving files, starting the install through steam then replacing the files

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I looked at some forums and it seems the the GTA 240 has some issues with GTA III. Looking at your specs, you can play GTA IV, which you can buy at the Rockstar Warehouse for 19.99, and the GT 240 seems to work fine with that.

Sorry to break the bad news, and I know how frustrating it can be. :bashhead:
