    So you can't play Rome: Total War but you can play the expansion packs without problems? That is odd. What version of the game did you buy and from where? Is it a Steam download or on discs?

    First try downloading the DirectX 9.0c package from Microsoft. Install it and let us know if it works.

    If that doesn't work then we may need to look for either the 9.0a or 9.0b package for R:TW to work. Keep us informed. Good luck!

    i own both steam version and CD version and neither of the rome works, but the add ons for both of them do work,

    ive also downloade the direct x 9.0 package, and that did nothing,
    ive also uninstalle and reinstalled it, but still nothing

    It's been too long since I've used Avast to tell you if there is an option to disable it in their preferences. The easiest way is to temporarily uninstall it and go from there. Good luck!
