Try running the configuration program and switching to software more, and perhaps lower the screen resolution, until you get past the scrying scene. A couple people found that the problem was random, and if they did something else in the game for a bit and then went back and scried, it would work. Others found that background programs could cause problems, particularly during the scrying scenes, and that shutting down all non-essential programs before starting the game would help.

Ran Configuration, idled a day away and tried again. Worked like a charm. Goemoe has joined the council of seven. Thank you.

I ran into this problem, solved it by turning off Norton Antivirus. Generally, at the Co7, turn off any background programs you don't need.

i had this problem once too. but i just reloaded and then scryered for someone else. when i can back to the one that made my game freeze, it worked just fine. this was before i got the patch. once i got the patch the scryer thing worked just fine.
