    All my games are crashing randomly these days.Like about 20 mins of playing the game crashes to desktop without any errors.
    Everything was working normal before i got Portal 2
    What to do??

    If you used Steam to get all of your games, maybe you need to reinstall them. (Steam too.)

    Prehaps try updating your graphics card drivers.
    The driver may be crashing - causing your games to crash as a result

    Hmm yea maybe becouse my comp is a low-end one and gonna buy a high-end one becoz most games r laggy even at very low graph settings...But the thing that annoys me is that this was not happening before.
    Today Spyware Doctor showed steam_api dll as Trojan.Gen at Skyrim folder and put it to Quarantine so i restored it coz game wont open wihtout it :(

    Are you using a cracked version of skyrim?
    Im pretty sure that people report cracks for games as viruses even when they are not which makes anti virus programs think they are viruses ><
    As for the crashes, update yah drivers, update direct X and any other stuff that may have come with portal 2, use Glary utilitys (or something alike) to clean up anything that could be causing issues and hope for the best.
    If worst comes to worst a total reformat+reinstall tends to clarify the situation a bit.

    Nope not crack...I dont think cracked ppl cares that issue since i think there is only 1 pirate version of Skyrim which is called Razor or something like that..If that got a virus in it it nobody wil install it.
    The cause can be the Anti Malware program couse the Skyrim is here for a longg time and it detected the virus this morning lol
    Thanks...I think the thing i have to do now is wait my new computer :P

    Hey, just thought of something, do you have the windows install disk?
    cause you could do a system restore to back before you installed portal 2.
    That might fix the problem, but I have not done a system restore in ages and dont know how to do it on windows seven.
    You should try it out if you want to play games before you get your new computer!
    Give it a google, and good luck!

    Exact same problem occured when I built my machine. Turns out that the graphics card was faulty. The majority of games (Cracked or legitimately bought) would crash to the desktop.

    One possible cause could be your graphics card failing.
    Definitely try updating your drivers before you do anything else though.

    Yeah, no, that's a bullshit program. Get rid of it and then uninstall+reinstall anything that's not working.
