Okay, well firstly around a week ago i had malware on my computer i tried removing the malware in safe mode with avg and malwarebytes but both could not detect it, so i ended up factory resetting my computer 2 times.
The wipe was perfectly fine and all the malware was gone
However when i play games now i encounter huge lag spikes around every 5 seconds. For example in csgo i could play with everything maxed getting around 200/300 fps consistently however now i cannot play the game as the lag is so bad but i still get consistently the same fps with no drops and my ping never spike staying at around 40.
I dont really know much about malware but i have a recovery drive partition on my hard drive in which i didnt reset so i can only guess that some of the malware is in there otherwise i have no clue why im suddenly getting such bad lag
My specs are:
Asrock extreme 4 z77 motherboard
Nivida geforce 760 superclocked 2 gig
8gb vengence ram
and windows 8
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can share.
