SolvedRed screen of death

Detailed description: after a couple of minutes a battle starts, the screen turns red and the computer reboots.

Reproduction Steps: I changed the suggested graphic settings from "high" to "custom" as follows:
- Anti-aliasing: from "off" to "on"
- Texture filtering: from "8x" to "4x"
- Grass detail: from "high" to "medium"
- Unit size: from "large" to "ultra"
- Shadow detail: from "high" to "medium"
- Unit detail: from "high" to "ultra"

The game resolution is 1920x1080. If I keep the quality set to "High" (which is the suggested setting) I get no crashes during battles.

The system produced no minidumps after crash and the modified.log is empty. I'm attaching my DxDiag (I took it while the game was running).

    Thanks for providing all this, good report. The only other thing we might need is the preference script, can find it here.

    To confirm: you can remain crash-free by using high rather than ultra?

    Yes, I've been playing several hours now and so far I haven't got any crash during battles. I'll let you know if things change.

    In the meanwhile I'm attaching the file you requested.
