After taking a dip back into this on a newer pc, I decided to install this gem to dive into it some. But for a 64bit version of Win7, I was running across a strange video glitch where the blizzard logo had some white behind it & then the game was running with some of the colors being rather wrong in how they were being displayed. To fix it just right click on the desktop & click on screen resolution, only posting this as it worked without having to install other patches apart from the main one off blizzard's site.
Link to the youtube clip that had the solution for me (after trying a ton of other ways to fix it) as well as showing the problem somewhat. Hope this helps others that might be having this problem.
