I have a problem in which Warframe (Steam) and For Honor (Uplay) won't run without any apparent issues. I tried reinstalling both games already, but it didn't work.

If the computer is a desktop can you post the brand and model name or number of the power supply (PSU).

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

You have a couple of problems going on but the main one is the amount of free storage space on a couple of partitions and there is a real danger that if you don`t sort this soon you will no longer be able to boot up let alone launch games, see info below;

Partition 1
Partition ID: Disk #1, Partition #1
Disk Letter: C:
File System: NTFS
Volume Serial Number: D435C838
Size: 172 GB
Used Space: 161 GB (93%)
Free Space: 11,1 GB (7%)

For Windows to be able to run efficiently and to be able to update you need to have between 20 and 25% of the partition or drive available as free storage space at all times, if you don`t you risk Windows becoming corrupt or not being able to update which puts you at risk of malware attack.

Data only storage devices should not be allowed to get any lower than 10% of free storage space of the full capacity of the drive/partition on the drive, this also to avoid data corruption.

Please note that storage devices can physically fail if the amount of free storage space is allowed to drop below the required 10 or 20/25% minimum.

Troubleshooting computer problems is a waste of time when it is known that Windows is out of date as any one of a number of the missing hot fixes could be the solution to any problem that you may be having.

Uninstall as many unused programs, games, videos and music files as you can and get yourself another means of backing up to, post back when you have between 25 and 28% free storage on the C: drive/partition and we can go from there, you need more than the usual 20 to 25% as you have a whole load of updates to install and some of them are quite large and will take up a fair bit of space.

It looks like clearing space and updating the system fixed the problem. I didn't think having little storage could impact performance that much. Thank you for help!
