Try and disable your virus checker before installing AACW, enter your serial and then enable you virus checker again, your virus program might be causing the freeze...

That's when you validate the key with AGESettings, right? If this is the case, then you might try to input the key directly into a file so that AGESettings does not trigger. You have to open the game main folder (might be C:\Program Files\Ageod American Civil War) then the folder Settings. There you'll see a file named general.opt, this is a text file, open it with notepad.

At the end of the file, there is an entry like
serial =

add your key after the equal sign, save and close. Restart the game.

I had something very similar happen lastnight when I installed AACW on my Win7 machine. The game and the AGEsettings didn't work right until I applied the 1.17a patch.
