Lags and folder problem

Recommended Posts


I have some strange problem on my GTA SA installs (I have more then one installed) I can't rename the folders, if so Windows says it's open somewhere else, but I haven't..

Also, there's some strange lag like each 5 seconds that have never been there before.

I tried making a exception in AVG but didn't help.


Yes, a re-install helps, but since the problem comes again after a while, I rather wanna know the real solution and how to prevent it (if possible)

Plus, that I have so many SA installs...

Anyone? Now I just have the lag instead, and sometimes when I double click the icon it doesn't happen anything.

It just says Windows have changed color theme and I have to double click the icon again for it to start.

If I get into task manager and click processes I find SA there at least.

Sometimes it dosen't even work to kill the process.


Edit: The problem with chaning folder name were that the GTA SA folder was write protected somehow....

What is your system specs? What OS you are using? What mods you have installed?

Windows 7. The specs is way over the requirements.

It's something software related and I also have used the same mods for really long. Without any problems.

GTA VC dosen't have any lag. Just all of my SA installs.

But like I said, it's something strange happening, because it won't start right away.

It gets stuck in the process if you check task window aswell

Use this mod and also hide GTA San Andreas from Games Explorer (usually in the Games folder in Start Menu). Same problem occured to me, but I can't help with lag if you have Quad Core or higher (when I had Dual Core, I had lag as well, fixed by setting only one core for GTA SA from Task Manager)

But you can try some "Lag Fixing" mods.

Thanks for your reply! The lags have never been there before.

I finally fixed it!! AVG Antivirus screwed it up..... (giving it lags) oddly... and it came up a sh*tty

text saying "enjoy GTA SA without interruptions" so I switched over to Avast and now the lag problem is fixed!
