3D Games Shutting Down

I installed a game from the Tiscali website and since then have an irritating problem I don't know how to fix. I had problems with the game repeatedly shutting down. Now when i run any 3d accelerated game sometimes after a couple of minutes the graphics become corrupted and flash randomly. Or more often the game just shuts down after a minute or two. This happens every time. I have tried system restore, the system file checker, reinstalling the graphics driver (latest from nVidia), cleaning, and checking the operation of, the graphics card heatsink and fan and reinstalling directx 9.0b, all to no avail. Anyone got any ideas?

I am using:-
AMD Athlon xp 3200+
1GB pc3200 ram
Asus A7V600 m/board
Creative Blaster5 Geforce fx 5900 128MB
Windows xp pro sp1
nVidia driver version 53.03

"I installed a game from the Tiscali website"

What game and what does Tiscali say about it?

Can you do a System Restore to before the game was installed?
