my wmm always either locks up on me, is really slow and sometimes just exits the program for no reason i cant even make videos on it anymore because it is so messed up can anybody tell why it does this or how to fix it?
I have never encountered a program that is as prone to freezing, dumping, and crashing as Windows Movie Maker. Seems the longer you use the program, the worse it gets - until one day, it locks up if you just look at it funny.
You’d think the geniuses at Microsoft would have stabilized it by now - or at least given a clue as to what the conflict is.
Happens to me, too! Every day, I’m repeating, EVERY DAY it happens to me. I don’t know why, but every time I go to make a video, it locks up, but I know what to do. These instructions might help some of you people and this is what I do:
1. You bring up movie maker. It will not respond, so you shut down your computer and turn it back on.
2. Once your computer is up and your logged in, you bring movie maker back up. It will still not respond. This time you press Standby. If you don’t know what I mean, you click the Start button at the bottom and press Shut Down. Then you click Standby. Then do the same again. If your doing it again, wait for your screen to turn ALL the way to gray. After that, press Standby again.
3. Still press Standby, but your clicking it right away. Then do it again and your computer will shut down. Turn it back on and your movie maker will respond. :)
That’s what I do every day it freezes. Sorry about the long comment. lol.
Another way you can get movie maker to respond, is minimizing it and let it sit that way for up to 5 minutes. If you have a “not responding” cursor, that kind of cursor lets you know that something isn’t responding. Then bring movie maker back up and your normal mouse will be there.
That’s a faster and easier way to get your movie maker not freezing anymore. :D
