I've been experiencing massive lag issues lately.
I can't really remember doing or installing anything which caused it to be like this, but anyways..
I play a game, for maybe 5 or 10 minutes, and then I get this big lagspike, and the game becomes totally unplayable. Then it stops and works fine again, and here comes the weird part, the next lagspike shows up after only like a minute or something with just as much magnitude, and then these lagspikes keeps on coming every minute or 30 seconds..
Notice that this doesn't only happen to online games, but to single player games aswell.
This only happens to sexy games like all of the games which uses the orange box engine, COD4, and STALKER.
It doesn't happen when I play older games like Zero Hour or CS: Source.
I know that somewhere around the time when this started I installed Norman AV, but I always turn On-Access scanner off while playing games, and that should shut down all Norman activity right?
Please tell me if you have any similar experiences with Norman AV.
EDIT: I just uninstalled it and I still get the spikes, so that ain't it
I took these two screen shots of the net_graph while playing Half-life 2 Episode 2:
Without lag: WITH lag I marked the obvious changes with red
These numbers might not have any value at all but I have no idea what any of them mean except FPS, but I decided to show them anyways ;P
(Notice that the LERP thingy turns yellow when it starts to lag, don't know what that means, but it looked important D: )
Any help is appreciated, I miss playing TF2 :<
