If you have downloaded the GTA 5 game from the internet via an illegal resource, then the chance is pretty high that there is a bug in the cracked/leaked game. If you have bought the game, then make sure that you update your video graphic cards to the latest version and that you are sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for the GTA 5 game.
Follow these steps:
- Uninstall the game via the uninstall button
