Hello, my name is Mitch- I used to have an account here a long time ago but forgot the email/username. And I received the best help one could ask for!- so I'm back with another problem :\
Its hard to explain so please bare with me.Basically the problem is while I am playing my PC game (Starcraft) my game and computer freezes which then causes me to power off my laptop by holding the power button. When I try to turn the system back on Windows fails to load- causing me to System Restore. This has happened over 20 times. I don't really understand the cause of it completely but I have started figuring out what TRIGGERS the game/computer to freeze. I will attempt to explain:
I play the game everyday and it seems certain things trigger my system to freeze and then not let me reload windows. Sometimes when I'm a certain race (there are 3) it will freeze. example-Whenever I am (protoss or zerg) I wont have ANY issues. But whenever I choose the race (Terran) to play with- either right at the beginning or end of game it freezes; or when I'm in game and hit the Menu, Ally, or Chat Button it will freeze up ( but when only when I'm Terran ) . Also When i watch replays and the replay is over it happens.
So I dont understand completely if maybe i have malware causing my problem- or my game is corrupted.
After every time I do my system restore- I update my AV and MBAM and do scans- and it doesnt find anything.
My only guess is that my game is corrupted- but I cant reinstall it because I lost the case with the CD-Key. I've never heard of a problem like this so I just don't know what to do. Could it be malware and someone infected my game?
Its really hard to understand I know. But if you need me to try to rephrase or reiterate my problem I will.
Thanks in advance for any help.
