    Programs Spontaneously Closing


    So for a while now, programs currently running on my computer have been spontaneously closing, usually when the computer is under stress when running games. I am not the one closing the programs and no viruses have been found on my computer. I have tried booting into Safe Mode to stop it. May someone inform me why this is happening? Thanks.

  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.

    Never heard of something like this, but the Graphics Card situation sounds familiar. I doubt your GPU is causing your programs to close though. Here's what I would do if I were in your shoes:

    • Uninstall and reinstall your GPU. Grab the latest drivers and make sure they are properly installed.
    • Run an antivirus check. I personally recommend Malwarebytes Free.

    Hope this helps.
