What antivirus are you running?
I see a lot of instances of this problem running Avira and Norton, anti-virus software.

Since it's happening in a game, I'd also check to see if your video driver is up to date.
This can be caused by driver errors for almost any hardware, but the video driver seems likely in your case.

Does it do it when you open the game or after playing for a while?


I use AVG for my antivirus, i have reinstalled my graphics card drivers many times, it happened after id played the game for a while about 30 mins

Hi Again.

Are you using any kind of gamepad or controller other than the mouse and keyboard.
If so see if the drivers for that are up to date.
