  • How to Terminate Full Screen Game or Software Process when Hang

    I wish I had know about this the last few month when I was having constant freezes with ARMA due to Nvidia drivers. Check it out if you are having a problem:

    How to Terminate Full Screen Game or Software Process when Hang

    Iíve tried pressing Alt+Tab to switch between Windows, Alt+F4 to close the active program, Ctrl+Shift+Esc to launch Windows Task Manager, Ctrl+Alt+Del to launch Windows Security dialog box, but NOTHING worked! The only way is to hard reboot the computer by pressing the reset button at the computer case. Hard resetting a computer is never good because it can damage the hard drive and cause data corruption.

    Now Iíve figured a way to automatically terminate the game by pressing a shortcut key when it hangs.

    OMG! That is a wonderfully brilliant yet simple thing :icon_eek: Thanks Bamboo I am going to make that for Arma and a few others that give me trouble once and a while.

    I also need to create another one.

      That's really cool. Never used those shortcut keys before. What I did up to now was logging in via remote desktop. That seems to minimize the game and you can bring up task manager or reboot.
