Hello! For the past few months I've noticed a severe slowdown in online gaming. I upgraded my RAM from 2G to 4G in hopes that this would help, but alas, still lots of lag. When looking at my resource monitor, I noticed huge spikes in CPU usage...from 5% all the way up to 100%, even when not running the game. The tower itself becomes louder when the usage spikes. I tried running a hijack this log, but it's giving me the error denying access to write the text file. I'm running Windows 7.
