When you boot up open the run box through the start menu and type in msconfig and go to the startup tab. in there you can remove unwanted programs from loading durning start-up and it will run better. That should also let you update and see if that helps any further.

Make sure you do not close any programs windows needs to operate.

Does rebooting help fix pc game issues


The game usually comes with a minimum spec for the computer. The game may require better graphics or more memory. What is the game? What is the computer? Are you saying the game runs fine in WinXP/Win7 but not win 8?
Rebooting will only help fix an issue if the computer has been bogged down by a program (or programs) that are misbehaving. If you have a game that requires all your PC to run, you can try quitting everything that runs in the background.
Most games have options you can also tweak. Try selecting a lower screen size, lower graphic details,etc ..

System freezes when mouse put on charging module


If this charging module came with software that you have installed on your computer, than try uninstalling that software and rebooting your computer. Next reinstall the software and reboot again. The installation may have been corrupted. If this does not solve the problem than see if there is software similar to this that is causing conflict with your module.
