Latest version of Construct Classic is R2, but they don't put the link on this site. You can get it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/constru ... e/download

As for the access denied issue, you may need to run your Construct Classic as an administrator account on the PC, which should help if the crashes are due to file permissions.

would the computer slow down if I keep running the game too many times in a row?, If I exit and run the game every 30 seconds to check effect for example? when should I run the game?

The program should be okay as long as you properly close the game before starting a new preview, generally I'd say it shouldn't slow down unless you previewed a huge project a few times within five minutes or so.

...computer slows down and construct still becomes unresponsive consistently over time.. I do remember occasionally running the games twice by accident, but my computer still slows down after I closed both of them. It seemed to be working fine when I used it this morning and then it went back to slowing down my computer, and constuct become more and more unresponsive.

Make sure you delete all other occurrences of construct classic before installing r2 , it made a difference for me once , but the shockwave crash is something different .

Hmm, I think you are best to only run Construct Classic (and whatever graphics programs you need) at the same time, and then close Construct Classic when you go to use Chrome or something else.

The other issues your computer is having is probably not specific to Construct Classic, but just when it tries to run other programs at the same time.

I would suggest only re-installing Construct Classic, as the other things should never be affected or have an effect on each other. Please try re-installing Construct Classic R2 (from the link I posted a few days ago), and make sure it is installed by using Right-Click > Run As Administrator to be sure it's working properly.
