Some players may find their Battlefield 3 character spinning uncontrollably, which makes the game unplayable.

This is a common problem that’s easy to fix. The tutorial is at the bottom of this article, but there are a couple points to keep in mind.

The problem stems from the Asus “Launch Manager,” which can be present on any computer—Asus or not. It seems the specific program that messes up Battlefield 3 is LManager.exe, which is a keyboard driver that gives some multimedia functions like volume control, play, and pause.

You can delete LManager.exe and all the regular keys on your keyboard will still work, but you’ll lose the multimedia keys. You can also disable it, but it will turn back on every time you restart your computer.

So if you want to play Battlefield 3, you have two choices: disable LManager.exe or delete it. Below is how to do both.

You’ll need to disable LManager.exe first, even if you want to delete it. Here’s how to do that:

1) Press Ctrl+Ald+Delete, select “Task Manager,” then go to the “Processes” tab.
2) Click LManager.exe, then click “End Process” in the lower right corner of the menu.

If you want to take this a step further and delete it altogether, here’s what you’ll need to do:

1) Click “Start” and search for LManager.exe in the search bar.
2) Right click “LManager.exe” when it shows up, and select “Delete” from the menu.

That should do the trick. If anyone finds a better fix, please let us know in the comments.
