Solution 1 - Disable custom cursors
In some cases, custom cursors can cause games to flicker or periodically freeze. Often and where possible, disabling the custom cursor within the game via the Settings/Options menu can solve the problem.
Solution 2 - Check for system updates
First check whether there are any Windows updates, program updates or syncing apps running in the background, as this can cause interference with game performance.
If there are Windows updates available, perform the update, restart your system and try playing your game again. Also, close any programs or pause/close any syncing apps running in the background, before opening your game.
