This is a bug in the Catalyst drivers, AMD know it's an issue as it they mention it in the driver change log.

This bug a a damn pain and hope it's fixed soon.

This is a good a fix as any, seeing as it takes less then 5 seconds and doesn't take up any file space.

Latest drivers (http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/downloads.aspx) do not fix this issue, yet. I'm sure 2K could put some effort into it though, or at least look at something else that's broken.

Anyway, what I've done was gone C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\mafia ii\pc
and modified the compatibility properties on the Mafia2.exe to disable desktop composition. It's been a fix since the demo, so I'm not sure why this is still bouncing around.
