hmm… I am running 8 and have never experienced that issue with any programs.
First, make sure all drivers are up to date, by running windows update.
Whatever you are using for anti-virus might be interfering with things. many of the anit- cheat detectors that come bundled with MMO’s get accidentally flagged by AV sometimes. Try disabling your AV for a bit and see if you get a different result. Or…
You may have a bad spot on your hard disk, or corrupted windows install files. If a refresh / reboot does not work, open an administrator command prompt and type this:
this will take awhile but this will fix any issues with windows system files. If it does not find anything try this in the administrator command prompt as well:
This will check for bad spots on the disk. If this does find an issue you will have to boot into windows recovery mode and run the same command again from the command prompt but like this:
chkdsk /r /f
If all that fails… I can smith up some more solutions.
I know some of this might sound like gobbledygook, just google search the terms that don’t make sense if that helps. I can only do so much when I can’t remote into your system. We can set that up if all this fails tho.
