Hmmm.... be more specific, is the game a flash game, a browser game, a 2D game, or a 3D game?
Do you have a GPU or just a CPU?
Who made your GPU/CPU?
When was the last time you downloaded new drivers?
Are you disabling your antivirus program before playing?

And antivirus is running all the time.

You may want to either add the games to your anitvirus's exception list or temporarily turn it off. That will result in both an FPS boost and likely resolve crashes

EDIT:
Also, can you alt+tab out of the crashed game or does the entire pc crash?

The entire pc just freezes and i cant use alt+tab or ctrl+alt+delete, and i will try this with antivirus.

kk, if the AV trick won't work, try reinstalling your Nvidia drivers (I know the download is painfully long) and MAKE SURE to check the box that says "perform a clean installation"
