Lately I have had a lot of freezing, and it pisses me off.

When the game froze, I could't alt+tab to get out of the game, and I had to reboot, which was really annoying.

Then I found out that when the game froze, I was actually able to press windowskey+L, to get to the windows login screen, and when I pressed my user, to come back, the game wasnt freezed anymore.

This is something that i'm using temporarily, even though I have to do that "fix" every second minute or so.



Anyways it helps me from rebooting my computer, and im getting back in the game.

Maybe its only working for me, but I thought i would share it, hoping that it would just help one other guy.

XP: ctrl-alt-del opens the taskmanager
Vista: opens some screen with a lot of actions to do like opening taskmanager, login/out, turn off etc.

so I suppose he is using XP? I do and I have seen my friend using Vista so I know that this is true. a Vista user should agree with the Vista statement.

My point is, that im not always able to use ctrl+alt+delete when its freezing.

@OP - I get the exact problem as you. When IV freezes, I have to press restart button from the tower. Reason for this happening is because GTAIV screen just simply won't go away even after I've pressed Ctl+Alt+Del...I know the task manager is open but the GTAIV screen just hangs there. I've tried Alt tabbing but total fail.

I've given the windowsKEY+L a go and it works...definitely for those with this problem. Temporary solution for now I guess.

Thank god I can always press CTRL + ALT + DEL, because I'm on Vista. Anyway sometimes a simple Alt F4 works to close the error messeage's window.
