    My pc freezes when watching Netflix

    I am confused by your comment if you are referring to my issue. I have never used Edge to watch Netflix or any streaming content on this pc yet. And I turned off my overclock on my CPU but my system still randomly crashes when watching Netflix. If your not referring to me I apologize.

    crysis steam version not working windows 10

    I fixed it by downloading a 64 bit cracked exe and running the game in compatibility mode with win 7, but I can't run the game any higher than 900p, I could probably fix this buy using a config tweak though. I am currently using a tv as my monitor at 1080p.
