    Happens to me too. I suspect the graphics driver. See whether you can get an updated Win8 Nvidea or ATI graphics driver - they exist. Unfortunately there is none for my GPU.

    Mine freezes too. I have nVidia GTX 560 graphics card with latest drivers. The option on the website when I was searching for the right driver was there for W8 64-bit. So I'm pretty sure I got the right driver. I don't know why W8 keeps locking up. I just ran Windows Update.
