Computer Freezes Whenever I Launch Program
Whenever I try to use Notepad++ to edit something or just launch it normally my computer screen freezes and I end up having to restart my computer
Obviously this doesn’t happen to most of us!
Have you checked your PC to determine if its hard disk contains flaws?
It might also be worth running a memory checker.
Failing that (or if the disk checker reports a problem, and a sector is deactivated), I suggest you de-install it, and reinstall NP++, and then if it still does not run, remove all the DLL’s from the plugin directory (thus removing the plugins without needing to run NP++ to do the job!) and test it in that state.
You didn’t say which version of NP++ you were trying to use.
@AwkwardIrishman If your Notepad++ version is v6.8, it seems the problem is due to your (graphic?) drivers of your windows which take time to deal with otf (font) format.
I believe the improved binary (using ttf instead of otf) solve this problem:
Please unzip it into a new created folder, then launch notepad++.exe.
Let me know if your issues are solved.
