Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Some games stop working after one/two uses

Hi, basically, i can open game fine for the first time and maybe even a second time, but after that the game crashes when trying to open it again and the infamous "program has stopped working" message comes up.
What is wierd though is that if i make a copy of the files before i ran it (game folder for example) and after it stops working recopy them back the game can run again like before (only once or twice)
I have tried multiple searches /fixes online.
I am unable to system restore to a previous point where it worked fine.
I have tried uninstalling programs that may have been the cause to no avail.
Also, it happens to most games but for some reason has not affected my APB Reloaded game folder, which i can open and run flawlessly.
Many other games both in my C drive and my D drive dont seem to run properly.
For now i just copy and paste the game folder to make it run able again but it is tiresome for files over 5gb etc.

My system:
ASUS N53JF Laptop
Intel i5 2.53ghz
Nvidia GT 425m
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Things that i have tried:
sfc / scannow on elevated cmd prompt
Full anitvirus scan (COMODO)
Full malware scan (Malwarebites)
Clean boot (No startup stuff except microsoft)
Uninstalling and reinstalling in several locations
