Unfortunately, a dual core processor does not have enough space to use for high quality video.
AND there are probably too many applications installed.
The processor is overloaded. That's what freezes it.
You can delete as many apps as possible, like CHROME. Minimize the load on the system and free up as many resources as possible.
Delete as many unused programs as possible. The fewer you have installed, the more processor will be free for video.
The more programs you install, the slower it runs. Until it freezes. That's reality.
You have installed too many programs, and the processor is FULL.
You can either delete as many apps as possible, or buy a quad core system.

Reduce the size of the window you are playing the game in.
Do not play the game full screen.
Play the game with a 50% screen, or smaller.
Now it does not freeze? am I right?
The larger the screen you are using, the more processor is used. Until there is no more available, and it freezes.
Typically, those who have loaded too many applications refuse to delete some of them. They do not understand that the processor DOES NOT have unlimited space.

Typically those who have this problem load "free" programs and games from the internet...
AND load "free" security from the internet.
No wonder it freezes. It's full of junk software.

MAKE A LIST of ALL the programs you loaded into your computer.
Post it HERE.
Then we can identify what is eating all the processor space.
