Thank you, lets do some digging and see what pops up at us.

Lets see what you have in your startup
Please click on
Start>>Run>>Type in msconfig>>>press enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
Try the game and if it is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.


Lets see what you have in your startup services area
Please click on
Start>>Run>>Type in msconfig>>>press enter
Now click on Services
Click on Hide All Microsoft Services
Then uncheck everything and restart.
Try the game and if it is running smoothly and faster then we have a service problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.


Go to
Start>Run>Type in eventvwr.msc Press Enter
On left side click on Applications On right side look for any RED X about the time of a incident
On left side click on Hardware. Onright side look for any Red X about the same time of a incident
Also look for any yellow exclamation mark at the same time in either of the above
If found then double click the error and post the information



Post back with the results

Also, is this with any game you play or one in particular?

Have you done some basic maintenance on your system since this started?

Have you checked your system for virus's, malware and such and if so what software are you using?

Was there any hardware or software done prior to issue starting?

Have you installed any new software or hardware prior to this issue starting?
