    Hi,

    being a new Operating System, Windows 8 is still in ivolving state and a lot of glitches will emerge out of it.

    Microsoft is trying hard to remove bugs from the software.

    I`ll suggest you to reinstall Windows 8 to get seamless efficiency.

    thanks.

    . System Restore

    System Restore basically restores a previous system state which should resolve any issues caused by software or system updates. To run a system restore in Windows 8 do the following:
    • Use Windows-C to open the Charms bar on the desktop and select Settings > Control Panel from the options.
    • Select System and Security there, and then System again
    • Select Advanced system settings on the right and switch to System Protection in the window that opens up
    • Click on System Restore and select one of the available restore points to restore a previous system state.
    • Note that the PC needs to be rebooted as part of the process.

    2. Enable Hyper-V

    I read that his fixed freezes for some users and decided that it was worth a try. To enable Hyper-V do the following:
    • Use Windows-C to open the Charms bar on the desktop and select Settings > Control Panel from the options.
    • Select Uninstall a Program here.
    • Select Turn Windows features on or off on the left sidebar and check the Hyper-V box on the Windows Features window that opens up.
    • A restart is required to complete the installation.

    3. Update your video card

    This one should be quite obvious. If a video card update is available try and install the update on the system to see if it resolves the issues that you are experiencing. You may also want to try and experiment with installing a previous version of the video card drive to make sure it is not an issue of the latest driver version.
    4. Verify your system files to make sure none are corrupt

    To verify all system files do the following:
    • Press the Windows key to go to the start screen if you are not already there
    • Enter cmd
    • Right-click the Command Prompt listing there and select Run as administrator from the bottom toolbar.
    • Accept the UAC prompt
    • Enter sfc /scannow and wait for the results.
    5. Sign out and in

    This is the step that resolved the issue for me. I know, it sounds really strange. To do that do the following:
    • Press the Windows key to open the start screen
    • Right-click your account name and profile picture and select sign out
    • Select the account again on the sign in page and log in again
