I have uninstalled the game reinstalled checked for corrupt files left right and center and I cannot find a solution to this damn issue. I get as far as maybe 10 feet into the intro area and the game freezes please help.

ATI has released a beta driver that seems to resolve the issue some players are experiencing with Desolate Sands freezing up their game. I'd recommend anyone running into this issue to check out this thread for a possible resolution. Thank you all for reporting the problem to us, and for helping your fellow players find a way to work around it.

*** Update ***

Due to reports of a GPU memory leak, I'd advise users to not try the latest beta AMD drivers at this time. I'll leave the text of my earlier post up for now but please, use caution when using these drivers as they may cause other system issues apparently.

it cause another prob

We've been keeping our eye on the situation and waited to suggest this fix until ATI updated the beta driver to address the memory leak. I'll quote this section of a post we made in the Technical Support forums to help clarify.

*** Latest Update 10/1/15 ***

ATI has put out a new beta release of their drivers to fix the recent memory leak issue. The new version is 15.9.1. If you've been having a problem with Diablo III locking up or crashing in the Desolate Sands area, we'd like you to consider giving these beta drivers a try. They're available at the link in the original post below.
