Have you looked in event viewer to see if the error is logged there?

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

A ram leak is the failure of a program to return memory to the memory pool. There are several programming errors which can cause this.

One check is to use Resource Monitor to see if the program memory usage grows.

WIN | type RESMON | ENTER
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

If no errors in eventvwr or elsewhere we can start getting aggressive with it. Not to worry, we will figure it out
