If you are having issues with the ESO freeze screen problem you can try the following:

 

Edit the following file using a simple text editor -> C:\Users\\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\UserSettings.txt

Find the following parameter: SET RequestedNumThreads "-1"

Change the parameter to: SET RequestedNumThreads "0"

 

 

 

Meta: Freeze; Screen; Glitch;

Does that effect how many processor threads are used or something?

I don't know, I found it in a web discussion while looking for something else.

according to the discussion on tamriel foundry that is it exactly. 

ESO development is reporting some users are hitting this problem and that its an issue on their side. Some folks have worked around the temporary hang by openning C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\UserSettings.txt and changing SET RequestedNumThreads “-1″ to SET RequestedNumThreads “0″. This disables ESO from sharing part of the main load on a secondary thread (which acts up on some multi-core processors).

it fixed my hiccup issue too :)

Mine is already set to 0.  Hmmm.  it must involve 1 or more other settings.  I still have the screen freeze.

That fix was also suggested weeks ago in PTS and it didn't fix my freezes, but what does work for me is closing the launcher instead of having it running in the background while my game is playing.

I closed the launcher, and so far so good.   Thank you @Raighan
