    Basically any time I use device manager on my Windows 8.1 laptop and say I click on the properties of a device it will then freeze the device manager program, regardless of which device properties I view it will always crash it. I have no idea why it's doing this.. any suggestions?

    mmmh, dodgy driver somewhere i recon.

    have a look at the windows event logs and see if that lists anything.

    Try in safe mode, can you open it through that? If so, probably a driver fault.

    I've seen similar before and updating the chipset driver fixed it for me, but it could be one of many i guess.
