lots of game crashes recently

Hey,

I been playing today, and I've had several crashes on game today (BF1942 isn't repsponding/has stopped working) just when on a nice sniper kill spree, when I try to log back in server I get "CD key in use" then I restart PC wich takes then like 10 minutes and normally 10-20 seconds.

Can't play without having to worry about game crashing on me, anyone know why?

Control once, if it isn't the Windows Update Memory leak.

> Start Taskmanager > Show ressources from all Users > Sort by CPU > control if TrustedInstaller.exe and SvChost.exe don't use too much memory and CPU Power. On a DualCore can be 50% and up to 1.5 Gb Memory after 10 minutes. On a Quad = 25%. The problem is that it slows down entire PC.

If you have this issues, you need to make two updates manually. After that, Windows Updates search takes minutes, then houres or days.

Contact me, if you need to know, which updates those are.

Yes, because of this CD-key in Use, .... just wait or 20-30 seconds then relogin again.

...

Btw. This memory leak while Windows Updates happends on all OS since Vista. You see it in Taskmanager after 3-5 minutes. (Descr. as i wrote beyond).

It's a memory leak though Windows Update... Since nearly 2 years. First time it took 9 months until they brought a patch. It's better between, but also between last months there was the same again.

Finally, if your PC runs some days, perhaps over night, it's enough time for WindowsUpdate to make those updates. But sometimes it only search... search... needs memory... (a lot) and CPU Power and finds nuffin. And finally, when it finds them, it takes houres or days to dl them.

But as i said. If this happends, dl one update manually, install it and then it's fixed... for 1 month wink

On the other side... on some PC's Updates runs fine...
