Windows 7: Starcraft freezes my computer on Windows 7.

Starcraft freezes my computer on Windows 7.

Just a quick question, and looking if there is any possible fix. May be dumb but its the only game I got a problem on Windows 7.

I play Starcraft and sometimes after around 10-20 minutes playing it just freezes my computer. It just completely locks up and I have no idea why. I always have to be doing a hard reset. Does anyone know a fix to this?

Ok after doing a little search on the forums looks like a lot of people are having the same exact problem. Going to look to see if there was a solution already given.

Have you tried running in compatibility mode?

I checked for that even before I posted this thread about the problem, I had it set to Compatibility mode for Windows XP (SP3), but let me see if I try other settings.

K, I've been playing Starcraft on Windows 7 more now, and I disabled animated portraits in game and I think that did the trick, Windows 7 has not been freezing now.
