    this game i play had some bugs, so my friend showed me 2 ways of fixing these bugs,

    1st fix: right click on properties of game icon, click on compatibility run this program XP service pack 2, instead of service pack 3, i did this, but it caused a new issue, so i went back to service pack 3.

    2nd fix: start task manager, end explorer.exe and the game wont bug out, this prooved to give me no problems so i still use this fix.

    the problem is, ever since doing this, i noticed a severe different in the way my computer is responding in versatile situations, for example, now when i am running my game, and lets say i have a 2nd or 3rd program running, if im playing the game and i press F11, it usually activates the 2nd or 3rd program, but now if i have the game open, nothing else is reactable, like the game somehow freezes all outside actions.. and i cant relate the game with my macro program or communication programs.. this is really bogus and if anyone could help me out that'd be awesome!
    thanks :)
