I bought the PMDG 737 yesterday and I needed to go to the options menu mid flight by pressing esc, after I got out of the menu, everything is frozen. I can still move my camera around like normal and the screens on the plane will change aswell. But I can interact with anything, and plane isn’t moving. I’ve only had this problem with the PMDG 737. Its like its in active pause, but it isnt.

I have done that a number of times without that happening. Anytime something goes wrong crazy I restart the pc. So not sure if you tried that.
I consider myself fairly fortunate that I don’t have a lot of problems with the simulator functioning on my PC in general terms.
However there are times, which I have absolutely no way of knowing what is the cause, where things just don’t work out. I’ve had a few sim freeze ups and the only way out is Ctl-Alt-Del into Task Manager and kill the program. The other day I had three consecutive CTD’s before even getting into a cockpit. In times like this I just re-start the computer as RF5468 stated above and usually things work fine from there. Until they don’t, but it’s not often and a restart always seems to make things better.
