Playing videos causes crashes

  1. Hi, I'm running Windows 8, and whenever I play a video file I can put it full screen and watch it, but if I move the mouse the videoplayer will crash, no matter what video player I use and I've tried many. I do have a few second at the start of playback to put the video full screen and move the mouse around without consequence.

    The problem less on non-HD video's, and streaming through YouTube etc plays fine.

    This is an infuriating problem, does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

    I'm sure mean windows 8.1 but if you are still on 8 upgrade to the latest version. First came the upgrade to 8.1 which is available in the Windows Store and there has been a further update since which is available through the Windows update for computers running 8.1.
