have you tried compatibility mode? right click the Icon and run "compatibility mode" and hopefully you run everything as administrator. If they are old like Crysis you may have to find a patch or just get lucky, I still haven't got that one to work. But warcraft 3 still works LOL?

i find compatibility mode in windows 8 to be totally useless. sometimes worked in windows 7 for using xp programs but i have seen it do nothing in windows 8

That's funny, because going to techRadar, Steamforum, and even Samsung Kies says using compatibility mode helps... I also have had great success using it.

To each his own. just try it, its only a few clicks.

I can respect that.... and either way, we just want the OP to have success fixing his problem.

But hopefully he drops more info later, like if he uninstalled and reinstalled. which is the simplest of, "wow I can't believe that fixed my problem" situations

you should not have upgraded to 8.1, it sucks and doesn't run any game, i know alot of people who upgraded to 8.1 and literally ruined their pcs by doing that.

I have had problems with a few games on Steam and trying to run crysis, but not the level of problems you have described? Do you have any examples?

Remember the OP is trying to resolve a problem, so lets not get off subject.

i guess u haven't really used windows 8.1 or windows 8 for that matter. windows 8.1 is very fast and avery good os for gaming. I m using 8.1 and play dota 2, battlefield 4, nfs rivals, dirt 3, without any issues.
maybe when u have installed it u didnt do it properly or something.
