Windows 7 farcry 2 npc glitch

Hi all i just finished building my new machine and some of the old favs have issues they didnt before, farcry 2 is one with a game progression stopper and the threads around the net show others have had it but proper fixs dont seem to be directly targeting the issue i have or i just cant find one, its the latest patch too.

I am running windows 7 64 bit on a new as set of hardware and farcry 2 has an issue with npc's in the first area's merc bar, the npc's are bouncing or swerving around and i cant progress as the npc's cant be talked to otherwise the game is sweet to play it has only minor graphical issues otherwise and frames are excelent on ultra.

i once finished this on xp and this was no probs then so as one other post i seen around the net seemed to b showing this is a windows 7 64 bit problem.

can anyone confirm this issue or possible fixes for it?

i have read that windows 7 isnt supported for this game which i find ridiculous its not even old really, borderlands frame's r a joke and oblivion has hangup problems for a sec every 5-10 secs of play considering the graphis card compatability screen shows GOOD for those two games but isnt much good really, i think we should be seeing better compatability for old games they used to work well but are now rubbish surely fixs are around for them.

windows 7 cant just be for new games they can make downloadable fixes for our games what a waist to just toss them all because the operation system cant run them well when the older version of windows dont it great.

and i have tried compatability mode and found no better results there.

sry this was so long just frustrated.

ty any input to these sort of issues would be welcome.
