Hi, I've searched the threads in this forum for a solution to my issue but I don't think I've found what I need, so I'm posting a new one. I apologize if I missed a similar topic in the forums that was recently posted.
When playing Diablo 2 online, the game sometimes freezes, and once I get to the desktop again, there is an error window that says "Unhandled Exception: Breakpoint (80000003)" (I think there were six zeros, I don't have the number in front of me). This happens when I'm alone online or with others in a game online.
I'm not a great troubleshooter when it comes to computers, so any advice would be appreciated.

I did ask you ask and I've tried to play a few times now. Each time the game would freeze, but i haven't seen that error message yet. I did see a bubble on the bottom part of my desktop that said something about "driver failed and recovered". I'll try to isolate what the bubble said exactly, I just thought someone might have an idea what might be causing this.
Hello, I seem to be having the same problem you are Jamie. Every time i try to play, weather it be online or not, the games freezes and an error message pops up that says " Unhandled Exception: Breakpoint (80000003)" Nothing i have tried has fixed it. I tried to uninstall and then reinstall it, i have tried a patch, i have tried to make a copy on my hard drive, everything! If someone knows how to fix this problem, LET ME KNOW PLEASE!!
You will need to reinstall AFTER getting rid of the registry keys that say that you still have LoD installed.
***UNINSTALL the game first Start>Run>regedit
IF there is ONLY DiabloII on the machine then you can get rid of the whole of the battle.net and Blizzard entertainment branches in ALL HKEYS, otherwise.
>HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Blizzard Entertainment> DiabloII highlight and delete.
>HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Battle.net > diabloii battle.net gateways, highlight, delete.
Now we need to know if you have Starcraft or Warcraft 3 installed, IF YOU DO, be CAREFUL with these steps or you could end up reinstalling all 3 games!
Then look in
>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> Software>Blizzard entertainment> DiabloII highlight, delete
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> Software> Battle.net Highlight, delete
If any or all of these keys can not be found, do NOT worry, some of them may have been removed during the uninstallation process.
Then, go and delete your Diablo directory. You can keep your saved characters by copying the save folder to the desktop.
Next, reinstall the game, and then put the Save folder back into your directory.
Lastly, I recommend patching the game manually. You can download the patch here from the link below. Once you've downloaded the patch, bring it to your DiabloII directory and execute it there.
