Not sure what this program is or what it does but since I have noticed it, I have been lagging like crazy and getting low frame rates. I can not find a way to turn it on either. I right click it and click Open application and it comes up with a IAstorUI has stopped working.

Do you know the make and model of your computer? The issues your having are related to your storage drivers.

My computer is custom built, which parts would you need? The only thing in/on my computer I did not replace was the cdrom drive and the HDD. Everything else is aftermarket and installed by me with help from the "System Building and Upgrading" section of G2G. This was done in 2012. This is my first problem I have encountered that I can not figure out. Could this be the cause of my lag and low FPS?

Let me take a minute to explain what I am referring to. I play World of Warcraft. Every time I encounter a loading screen, the game lags when it comes off the loading screen. My entire game will freeze and it will stay frozen for a good 20 seconds or so and when it unfreezes, my fps will be below 1. It then takes a good 1 minute or so before it gets back up to 60ish FPS. The game will remain running fine until I reach another loading screen. This never happened before until recently. The load screen would go away and I would be able to play immediately without wait or lag. When this started happening, I then realized shortly after that the Intel RST was not running but I am not sure if this is the cause of my lag. Other MMO's do are not affected in this manner.

Things I have done to my PC recently: Updated all my drivers using Driver Booster 1.0. I have not downloaded any programs or accessed any sites I normally don't do on a daily basis. I also have ran virus scans, malware/spyware scans, registry cleaner, system optimizers, all through Advanced Systemcare to see if it would fix it, but to no avail.

Parts:
Graphics Card: MSI Radeon 5770 HD 1GB 128 bit. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127490
CPU: Intel i5-3570K Ivy Bridge http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819116504
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit.
RAM: G-SKILL Ripjaw Series 8gb http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231314
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157294
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series 650W http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139020
Case: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811144076
HDD came with the original computer and its a ATA ST3500418AS SCSI Disk Device. Seagate Barracuda.

Side note: I have tried removing all my addons on WoW and it still does nothing. The other thing, my latency has been up around 150ms compared to the normal being around 80ms and under.

Do not use any "programs" to update your drivers. They can still be outdated or even for the wrong operating system. Far easier just to go to the vendor site to obtain the drivers:

http://www.asrock.co...M/?cat=Download
Select your operating system, and then select: Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver and utility ver:11.7.0.1013

For the video drivers, you can get the latest from http://amd.com/

If your playing the latest expansion for WoW, you may have to scale your video setting back a bit. With each expansion the graphics get more demanding.

I have been playing on max settings on wow since I built this computer, it has never done this before. I will try this link you gave me for Intel RST. I will remove Driver Booster. Thank you very much for this link.

When I was installing it, it said that the current version is more up to date than the one I am installing. I told the system to install anyways.

The link has made it so that the program is running again! Thank you!
