I don't know much about the world of PC Games, Video Cards, RAM so this is all greek to me and I don't know what to do. The troubleshooting on Amazon was next to nothing if you ask me. I did check Windows Update like they suggested and I didn't need any relevant updates.
The only thing else I have to offer which may not mean anything... was one time when I was in Task Manager to turn the game off it was up past 200,000 k; that seems like a lot to me.
I have Avast for virus protection and Comodo for firewall. I answered allow for every flag that came up on Comodo during download/installation/launch of the game.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game, with a run of CleanUp! to wipe the cache clean and a reboot in between.
Maybe this is a common problem, maybe you guys have never heard of it... hope I'm describing it right. Any help would be much appreciated.
[EDIT]: I forgot to mention... that I also encounter this problem (just started a couple months ago) when I try to go full screen on youtube videos. Don't know what happened to make it change, just one day we couldn't full screen those videos and we just kind of accepted it. Hadn't even thought more about it till today when my game did this.
