What’s the BSOD code, out of curiosity? Also, are you using any third-party antivirus solutions?


The BSOD code is : Critical Process Died
I’m not using other than Windows Defender.

Uhhhhhhhhhhh, I am confused, but ok.
Run a malware scan please, Malwarebytes or another preferred one will work fine, this should not be happening lol

Nothing suspicious detected :confused:

When you start FiveM, on what exact stage does it freeze/crash?

When i click on the FiveM shortcut/icon

loading icon appears next to cursor, then freeze, then crash

Hm, did you try changing your UpdateChannel in CitizenFX.ini? It’s in the FiveM Appdata folder in your install
BTW, was there any Windows or other Windows-related updates on your system yesterday when the crashes started happening? I’m starting to lean towards it being caused by Windows here tbh

I’ve just installed “normal” Windows 11 instead of the Enterprise LTSC version, I’ll wait 2/3 days to see if it solved the problem or not, I’ll keep you posted!
