    SC Conviction PC problem

    Hi! I have a problem with Splinter Cell Conviction for PC. Well, when I play the game, it gets slowly sometimes and the game stops working sometimes.When the game stops working I can't do anything with the computer.All I can do is press Ctrl+Alt+Del and then the game continues working. What can I do? My computer meets the requirements of the game by far.

    Thank you and sorry about my english.

    Hello NakedSnake857... whenever you're giving information for troubleshooting purposes, it's important to give as much hardware/software details as possible to assist in trying to define the problem/issue (see without this information it's next to impossible to troubleshoot; but I will give it a shot. After reading your post, my first thought is that your system does not meet the requirements,2069 but you mentioned "My computer meets the requirements of the game by far", so I will assume that you have verified this and rule this out as a possibility. You mentioned "All I can do is press Ctrl+Alt+Del and then the game continues working", but you didn't say what you do after the CTRL+ALT+DEL... do you end a task/process/service or do you restart/reboot? You also mentioned "it gets slowly sometimes and the game stops working"... there are a few reasons (that I can think of) why this might occur:

    1. Splinter Cell Conviction ports in your router and/or firewall have not been opened If you don't have your ports open in router and firewall (or any other programs that could be blocking/monitoring ports) you will never be able to play Splinter Cell Conviction multiplayer on-line successfully... look to this thread for assistance
    2. There is a program on your PC that is monitoring/scanning/blocking incoming/outgoing traffic... disable (temporarily) any and all Internet Security programs
    3. Your internet throughput is bottle-necking due to other programs tying-up the bandwidth... disable/exit all programs that are accessing the internet (torrent downloads, firewall/security, chat/talk programs etc.)
    4. There is a TSR (terminate stay-resident) application/program running in the Windows background that is in direct conflict with Splinter Cell Conviction... disable/exit all TSR programs by doing a CTRL+ALT+DEL and Start Task Manager; then right-click/end all applications/processes that are not in use or that could be conflicting with Splinter Cell Conviction.

    Unfortunately there is something on your PC end that's making your PC/game freeze. If after you've double-checked your PC (with the aforementioned) and your PC/game still freezes, then I suggest you contact Ubisoft Support

    Good luck.

    Thank you Green.Hornet... Well, i will give the information you are requesting:
    My computer has an Intel Core i3 with 3.10 GHz, a Nvidia GeForce GT 440 1024 MB GDDR5, 4 GB of RAM, and Windows 7 32-bits. But the 32-bits version of windows 7 reduces my RAM from 4 GB to 3 GB.
    When i push Ctrl + Atl + Del, I select the option Cancel to exit.

    I'm going to try all the things you say, and i will se what happen.
    Thank you, and sorry about my english.
