I have no idea why.

I decided I wanted to play WoW (world of warcraft) again after taking a break for a few months.

I log on and I have really bad fps,(.5-3) It's only up to about 18-20 in completely desolate areas.

No clue why.

The following are my system specs:

Windows Windows XP5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 2

Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180

Memory (RAM) 1535 MB

CPU Intel® Celeron® CPU 3.06GHz

CPU Speed 3069.8 MHz

Sound card Realtek AC97 Audio

Display Adapters ATI Radeon X1050 | ATI Radeon X1050 Secondary | NetMeeting driver | RDPDD Chained DD

Screen Resolution 1024 X 768 - 32 bit



Network Adapters Wireless-G PCI Adapter #2 - Packet Scheduler Miniport | VIA PCI 10/100Mb Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport

BIOS Info ATAT COMPATIBLE 060806 P4M80P 42302e31

Time Zone Pacific Standard Time

Battery No Battery

Motherboard P4M800CE-8237

I recently installed and bought Kaspersky Internet Security and Max Registry cleaner so I don't think there's some kind of malware or a bad registry.

Though, I did notice while playing in the task manager that my CPU usage is up to 100% while running WoW, and 24% with it minimized.
5% when it's not running.

I used to have terrible FPS before like a year ago when I was active and upgradged my ram from 512 MB to 1535 MB and that fixed it.

try disabling your anti virus. It may be scanning your game while playing thus resulting in bad fps.

Both reflect my current status.

I've tried pretty much everything except the solution, whatever that may be.
