winmain.exe is a boot process, I assume it helps windows load into memory, it is sometimes used as a backdoor for virus or malware programs, if you have AVG and firewall tho, you should be fine

best thing to do would be to reinstall the game that way you will find out if TH is causing it (don't forget to back up yr game saves), if that doesn't work maybe use windows System Restore in control panel to return to setting before the crash happened, or it may be that your computer has had an error causing it to damage winmain, hence a reinstall of windows may rewrite an undamaged winmain onto your hdd

Try going into the game folder selecting all the .exe files, then right click on them, select properties and set compatibility mode as far back as it will go Windows 3.1 if poss
do it quick before your head explodes ;)
