This happens often to be noted, but it is a hit or miss kind of thing and does effect how often I do play battlefield because I most likely do visit our servers.
Starting up TS and will freeze the computer for good 20-30sec and then runs fine.
Start up battlefield and again freezes computer until it boots me off server.
I found out it is TS because I've turned everything off and started up TS and then BF with the same result.
What I've tried :
Re-install 32 bit - Freeze
Re-install 64 bit - Freeze
Clean up and Install - Freeze
I had another member try to help :
- Hide UI - freeze
- Add/Remove plugins- freeze
Install only for me- freeze
Install for everyone- freeze
update audio- freeze
Install into different drive- freeze
Looked up on TS forums for similar cases :
- Found a tip about installing in safe mode -- worked more often, but freezes became infrequent and sporadic. strangely enough.
Looked on AOD forum, I skimmed, but it doesn't look like anyone is having my kind of problem. A lot of issues about connection errors and what not, and nothing about freezing.
At the moment attempting to go through every little detail to find out what could cause TS to hang up my computer like that.
Other things to add :
During freeze I can't hear anyone, but they can hear me.
It also freezes the same amount of time when I quit.
No errors, no dump, and it runs as if nothing is wrong.
In a sense I had a minor fix, but I don't understand how safe mode could have helped.
