If it's an MMORPG it may be updating by itself and doing tasks behind your back.

May be useful to some but it may confuse your firewall. What is your OS and what connection speed do you have?

MMORPG = Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. So, yeah.

OS = Operating System. So, are you running Windows XP or something else?

Can you un-install the game? If you can, you should check on how your comp. works afterwards.

crashhat69 :
I'm not sure what the root problem is because I don't play MMOs. I do know that the reason a computer freezes is because all of the RAM (random access memory) is being used. RAM is what affects the speed of a computer. A computer with more RAM runs faster. A computer with less RAM runs slower. RAM memory is only used temporarily. When a program runs, it uses RAM, but when it is closed, the RAM is restored. If all of the RAM is in use, but more programs try to run, the computer slows down until it freezes. When one of the programs is closed, the RAM it used is freed for use and the computer starts running again.

My general guess is that RAM has something to do with it. The best way to check is this:
1. Open "Task Manager" by pressing "Control"+"Alt"+"Delete"
2. Click the "Processes" tab
3. Click on the "Memory" column title twice to reorder the list.
4. This will display all programs running in the order of how much RAM each one is using. The higher numbers mean it is using more RAM.
5. If you can get the Image Names of the three programs at the top of the list when the computer is frozen. Post them on this forum when you get a chance. This may give an idea of what's going on.
