    Windows 8


    I am having the following problem. I am using Microsoft Outlook and I walk away from my computer for 10 minutes. When I come back the screen is frozen. The cursor slowly disappears and then nothing. I have to reboot. I do use Google Chrome but it has never happened with Chrome on. Only Outlook. Any thoughts?

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    jeiduson - please start your own topic/thread so that your issue can receive the individual attention that it deserves.

    Uninstall Chrome (while waiting for a reply) and see if that helps.

    Finally bit the bullet and tried the Hyper-V fix. Been up and running solid for the past two days with all the browsers running at the same time. Could barely get 10-15 minutes with just one running previously.

    An official fix has apparently been posted, and Rafael has written about it.

    Here's the fix:

    Run the following in an elevated command prompt, then reboot.

    bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes


    Be sure to read Rafael's blog post on the issue so you understand what the command does.
