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.

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.
