    Some of my games wont start


    More exactly ye olde BF3 and the new assassins creed
    When i click the exe the games appear in the task manager for a little while... under background processes... then just disappear.
    I know this could be 50 different things but i really dont know what to do. The games dont say anything about installing extra things and i got a handful of games installed new and old and none have this issue

    Hi @americanu197

    Please start with the following first.

    Make sure drivers are up to date
    Scan ur pc with malwarebytes.
    Verify ur gamefiles via steam, uplay, origin, ect
    Also please run a sfc on ur drive.
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Once this is done, let me know if something changed if not we go from there :)

    @americanu197

    Before you format, lets try to clean out ur pc first :)

    @ Malwarebytes > Scan > Custom Scan > Configure scan

    Make sure you have these options ticked.
    Then press Scan Now. Allow Malwarebytes to complete the scan and restart if asked, once that's done.
    Open malwarebytes again and go to Quarantine check all the items and press Delete.

    After malwarebytes please download and install following.

    AdwCleaner
    Kaspersky Free ( if you have other antivirus installed, remove them because the software is not doing it's job )

    Install adwcleaner first and scan, remove anything you find.
    install kaspersky, run a full scan. remove anything it finds.

    When this is done run a sfc on ur drive.
    Make sure drivers are up to date.
    Then
    Verify ur gamefiles.

    well
    though i reluctantly went through all of that im afraid to say... surprisingly... none of it helped... the same faults remain... felt like a good time to format anyway

    @americanu197

    So what happen after the reformat?
    Are you still having issues with the games?
    All drivers installed & up 2 date?
    What kind of errors are you getting? ( if any )
