Kill Resource-Hogging Applications

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Life is Strange Remastered crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Life is Strange Remastered.

Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome,  and more. You can close these applications by closing them using the Task Manager.

Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Life is Strange Remastered keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Life is Strange Remastered’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus. Disable or temporarily disable your antivirus or any security programs on your computer. If you download the Life is Strange Remastered from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Life is Strange Remastered and see if the problem has been solved.
