Hey Hey guys I've been using MQ2 for about 7 months now and and I have never really had any problems with it until today.. Let me explain .....

Normally I can run 50 accounts at 1 time with absolutely no issues today I was running about 12 characters and I came outside for a quick smoke break then I came back inside to my computer and I noticed it was at the windows login screen. I figured the Power went off and came back on so I just logged in ,restarted mq2 and loaded up my toons with no problem..

My characters My characters would load up and be fine for about 5 minutes and and then my whole computer would just completely Freeze up on me control alt delete doesnt even pop up for me . I have to keep doing a hard reboot amd it only happens with mq2 now ...

I am stuck On what to do... I havent

are you getting any crash dmps?

really hard to say without too much info

have you considered doing the swap to MacroQuest "Next" there are a huge amount of performance improvements and bug fixes

Thanks guys for your input.... how would I get the crash dump files if my computer freezes to the point of me doing a hard reboot... does it save it automatically somewhere .

Also I tried to save my profile For all my team's with macroquest and I kept getting an error

You look to be using MQNext (now), which would generate and send the dmps automatically to the crashpad if it was able to do so.
Typically a "lockup" wouldn't generate a dump since it's not crashing, it's freezing. But if you were generating a .dmp file it would be located in your MQ\Logs\Dumps\reports\ folder.

Maybe a coincidence but Tuesday or Wednesday your PC probably got some Microsoft Windows updates. It might pay to reboot and then manually run all the updates it offers to you and keep rebooting and repeating until there are no more updates. Then reboot one more time to ensure Windows has correctly staged all the proper settings in the registry.
