Since yesterday, whenever I try to play the Harry Potter PC games, they freeze for half a minute, and then I can play for 2 seconds, and it freezes again, and it goes on and on like that. I never had this problem before, the last time I played the second HP game, a week ago, it worked just fine. But now it keeps freezing.

I re-installed a few times but it doesn't help. Does anyone know how to fix this 'cause it's really annoying.

well, first check to see that you dont have any applications running in the background like: anti-virus, firewall,etc.make sure you have patches, if any, for the game and latest drivers for card. if that is not the problem, then simply check if you have to defrag your pc, then install again.(analyze it first you may not have to) start>all programs>accesories>system tools>disk defragmenter.(analy i had to re-install far cry, cause the first time i did install, it was all over the place, and i when i get to this particular place in the game it would not load up and just freeze with the sound looping in the background. unistalled, defragged, installed, got the same point again, and it loaded up; it was a cinema before the next level. anyway, hope this helps, or the very least think in other directions.
