    Randomly, Diablo 2 will freeze my computer completely. Ctrl + Alt + Delete doesn't even work. I have to end up restarting the whole computer. Now, this only happens in window mode, full screen. I have changed the settings to full screen, normal viewing mode but that slows load times tremendously. It started to happen when I updated Windows. Anyone heard of a problem like this and/or a fix?

    I had issues with D2 and the latest win update as well, and I've heard of others too. So that will most likely be the problem. I solved my problem by rolling back win to a previous version.

    I followed this guide. I'm quite certain the part under 'uninstall typical windows updates'.

    So I was too late in uninstalling windows updates. I tried the Windows Borderless Gaming app, I've tried Glide Wrapper. Nothing fixes my freezing game issues. The only thing is, Diablo 2 is the only thing application that I run on my computer that freezes it completely.

    Did you add -3dfx to the D2 command line when trying the Glide wrapper?

    When trying the Glide wrapper, did you try putting a chackmark to "desktop resolution" in the config program?

    Did you try windowed mode? Add -w to the D2 command line for that.

    yes to all three.

    It's frustrating. Sometimes I can go 2 hours without any issues. Sometimes it freezes within 15 minutes.

    @Smittyphi That is frustrating, can I just double check the exact version of Windows 10 that you're on, is it 1803?

    EDIT: Try this link @Smittyphi and see if that works?

    I'll check and update this post when I get home from work. If the WINKEY + CTRL + SHIFT + B works that will be fantastic

    edit: Indeed version 1803

    And it just froze. The WINKEY + CTRL + SHIFT + B does not work. The computer is on full freeze mode. Only a restart can let me do anything.

    How do you mean, too late? Can't you always go back to a previous version?

    Perhaps it helps to uninstall the graphics card driver, reboot and re-install it.

    If you have a CPU with a builtin graphics card, you might find out more about the problem by changing to it.

    No, Windows automatically deleted all of the files for the previous Windows after 10 days

    I'll try that later tonight.

    The should have been a fix released on May 8th according to some websites. Did you check to see if there were any updates?

    Windows is set to auto check for any updates so I figured it already installed it back in May
