I'm having the exact same problem right now. I'm pretty sure running it in compatibility windows 98/me mode is causing this problem for me but I need to run it in this mode to prevent it from crashing and losing my save file.
This is so absurd, I can either keep launching the game hoping it doesn't crash, play through an entire episode in one sitting, and when I next start the game it will probably crash and loss my save so I'll just have to play each episode with random choices but there will be no stuttering OR
I can fix the crash and keep my save file through each episode BUT there will be constant stuttering during any action scene. I've enjoyed the game up to this point but the problems are becoming to much for me.
