I think most of us are going to need a little more information to go on.

Such as (but not limited to):
-Game version
-Mods installed
-Was a modloader such as JSGME used?
-SH3 Commander used?
-Have you been tweaking game files?

To a lesser extent the following information may be required (if we can't solve the problem with the information provided with the above, also not limited to the ones listed):
-Computer specs, hardware and relavent software

Edit: Also, this topic should have gone here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/2881085392).

In regards to SH3, 9 out of 10 reasons why a computer CTD (crash to desktop) occurs during a save game load is because a game file(s) was adjusted, modified, removed/deleted or has become corrupt.

Your best bet is to follow these (somewhat) simple steps:

1. Uninstall every mod that you have incorporated into SH3 if applicable

2. Uninstall SH3 completely (including all save game files in your "My Documents" folder)

3 (optional) Defragment and perform a Scan Disk on your hard drive

4. Re-install SH3

5. Patch SH3 in accordance with your specific DVD release (ie US or European release) 1.4 patch

6 Re-install your mod(s) if applicable.

Defrag your computer, Clean the dust off your processors(video and CPU), COldboot your PC. Try those. Give us more specific info on your pc type.

Also check your registry for errors relating to SHIII. Since you had a virus, it might have corrupted a registry entry.
