Penguin3D Windows 10 Critical Bug

I have come to the conclusion that P3D has some sort of conflict with Windows 10 because every time I play and try to log out of P3D (pressing the Quit button or X button on top has same result) the application freezes and I have to force quit via Task Manager.

If I don’t force quit and wait for it, eventually I get a prompt explaining "Penguin3D.exe is not responding" and often have to close the program there.

Not sure why this happens, I have quite a number of abhorrent images I can't for the life of me ever fully remove, so that could be it.

However I use OldCP that way and it doesn’t have the same issue. It does freeze on exit but eventually does close by itself. Sometimes I force close it if I’m impatient lol. Never has crashed by me playing OldCP though, just P3D.

I have tried reinstalling and using on my main SSD but that doesn’t change the result for me. Perhaps it’s a graphics card conflict? Not sure what to do but hopefully its some conflict for me and not the actual program.

Maybe someone knows how to fix it. Idk I’ll keep looking for solutions. I’ll post anything if it helps.
