  1. My computer keeps freezing under load/running games


    When ever i run a game or program, my screen and audio freezes and a minute aftrer it shuts down and starts back up. When it start back up it doesn't recognize my, keyboard , microphone, headset it does still give audio after restart but doesn't come up as a "primary output" on most applications like RTX voice or discord but only my mouse with on-board memory. I already made one of these earlier and the fix was to change my GPU driver to a older one but this didn't work. All information I can provide is listed below:Link to all minidumps created:MinidumpSystem information:OS Name Microsoft

    Computer Keeps Freezing

    It froze again, and the common problem I see throughout most of the freezes is a driver atksgt.sys being blocked from loading. It is related to Tages Protection from Tages SA and it says it has a driver that is installed that causes stability problems with my system. It says it will be disabled but I think this is why my pc keeps freezing. Any suggestions as to what it may be for and/or if I can get rid of it and how?

    I never downloaded a program from Tages SA so I am not sure what it could be from.
