I guess the NVidia driver update of Jan 27 is somewhat buggy. Reverted to the previous version, so far it seems more stable.

Turned off on demand patching, received 3 gigs of files, still freezes when loading zones more than 50% of the time. Since windows 10 and sto hate each other, task manager is hidden behind the black screen of an alt-tabbed frozen sto, making it impossible for me to close it to interact with anything other than the startbar. I do not run into this issue with any other game. Whatever the game is stuck on it feels is so important nothing else can happen. Being able to minimize a crashed program is handy if the program lets it happen. I know for a fact windows has been able to allow this for a long time, if the program is written to take advantage of it. Sorry if I'm grasping at straws but I wouldn't feel the need if I knew this issue was being seriously addressed. Having actual education in IT, it's hard not to try and help solve it, even if it feels like screaming in space. Event viewer doesn't show anything, so the problems seem isolated to the actual gameclient. Not being able to alt-tab out of it properly seems to be a problem with the gamclient and video driver, as this symptom isn't universal, older directx video cards seem to be able to tab out regardless of OS. Ones made more recently have to sneak past and get to the start bar to log out that way to close the gameclient. Having the game effectively crash almost every loading screen is bad enough, having to log out or restart windows to get around it is too much.
Well, it seems to never happen when the game runs in windowed maximized mode, and while the performance is much less, it's workable until the issue is fixed. The load screens are a lot faster too, probably because the processor is just sitting there :P Running on a GX60, A10/R9 and I am pretty sure it's running completely off the graphics chip alone; on full screen, the processor's integrated graphics almost doubles the speed, but that is where the load screen keeps freezing.
