Lately I have been having the game just disappear with no warnings or error messages.

My HW monitors show no overheating.

I don't know what else to say...nothing in a sticky to tell me what to report.

I had this problem with 8.0 when it came out, I have no clue what I did to fix it, I believe I added a file that fixed the problem. (If I find out what it is I will put it here)

Every patch brings one or two players with this same problem but the problem is usually a local one so first update your drivers clean your system and do a defrag

Incase you dont know how to do these things yourself here are some links to apps that will help;

If your still having problems when was the last time you did a complete reinstall of the game i usually do a fresh install every couple of patches atleast and rarely have problems so this might also help you

I too have been having the " close game and return to desktop " since the last patch.

Brand new install of game on brand new HD with all drivers updated.

All system monitors show good operational specs. I run Win 7x64, AMD phenom 2, EVGA 550ti, 16 meg ram

system gets a complete cleaning, regularly and no other programs exhibit problems, only WoT.

definately seems to be NOT a system malfunction but a program bug or missing file .... but the file should cause it to close consistently, and it does not.

Replace the 7z.dll WoT uses with the one included in 7zip Release 9.20 x86.
7Zip 9.17 (which WoT uses) is faulty.
Backup your old one though.

Seeing similar.  Just saw it reviewing my service record.  I tried the 7zip replace and was steady for a several hours.
