Please attach your user.cfg. There doesn't seem to be a general problem with Windows 7, it's probably an issue with your graphics driver.

That is not user.cfg, it's settings.cfg. user.cfg can be found in your user profile directory. Sorry, I don't know where exactly, Microsoft changed the precise location on every release.

# Policies

#########################################################################

# As all Armagetron subsystems, Authentication is complex and has many
# options for you to tweak. The policies for the default settings were
# chosen with the following priorities:
# 1. Compatibility with old clients
# 2. Security
# 3. General usability
# If you are a very security aware person, you will probably disagree
# with the priority choilce of 1. vs 2, and want to get maximal security,
# even if that means old clients will not be able to authenticate on
# your server; in this case, uncomment the following line:

# HASH_METHOD_BLACKLIST bmd5

# this will disable the hash protocol clients up to 0.2.8.2.1 knew as
# the only one, which is vulnerable to relatively easy man in the
# middle attacks. New clients will, by default, refuse to use it, so
# if the the admins on your server are well educated and protect their
# login data with all means available to them, which includes using an
# up-to-date client, you should be safe even without this setting.
# You may get the occasional faked login from a regular player, though.

#########################################################################
#
# Local Accounts
#
#########################################################################

# To help your local users store their passwords, you should change the
# following settings to something server-specific:

MD5_PREFIX %u:
MD5_SUFFIX :arma

# those are strings that are appended/prepended to the password before
# the hash function is applied to them. So far, only the md5 protocol
# supports them, bmd5 ignores them. If you put a %u into the strings,
# it will be replaced by the username. This helps combat precomputation
# attacks; for team accounts, it will force the password to be kept in
# memory in plain text, though (not much of a problem).
# You need to set these up before you define the accounts.

# The following commands are available for you to create local accounts:

# LOCAL_USER <user name> <user password>

# Creates an account for a single player. You should restrict the username
# to ASCII characters, best lowercase letters and numbers, and avoid spaces
# and the symbols @, #, \, :, and %. They will still work, but look ugly
# in the logs and on the screen because they all need to get escaped.
# Spaces in the username, if you absolutely must have them, need to
# be quoted or escaped, the user "Foo Bar" can get an account with either
# LOCAL_USER "Foo Bar" <password>
# or
# LOCAL_USER Fo...

check if you have the newest video driver for your video adapter installed on your windows 7 system.

Forum user Mateo is having the same problem. His specs:

My system is Windows 7 home premium.
- the model of your graphics card
The graphics card is the ATI Radeon HD 5670.
- the version of your graphics card driver
Version 8.690.0.0
- the version of Armagetronad you're using?

Mateo writes that a driver update fixed it:
"basically, all I really had to do was upgrade the graphics card. I went from 8.69, to 8.74, and I've been on armagetron for 2 hours now. Haven't crashed once. I did uninstall arma first and re-install tho, not sure if that affected it at all."
