I don't have the steam version so I can't say if it'll work for you, but Hot Pursuit had a patch that resolved problems it had running on multi core processors. You could try getting that patch and see if it works with the Steam version.

Before the FIRST race? If so you have to change the AFFINITY to 2 Cores on the executable.... (it has a bug with Quad Cores), let me know if you don't know how to do this....

This fixed it for me... hope it helps: For multi-core users, change your processor affinity to 2. To do this, Run Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit then alt+tab out of the game. Right click NFS11.exe and set affinity to 2 (as in only choose Cores 0 and 1, untick 2 and 3) Let me know :)
