    G73JH-BST7(Best Buy Edition) Computer Lag

    I play Rift and I'm having some issues where the graphics will start to shutter and my mouse will lag for about 1-2 seconds. It also happens when I use Windows normally. I don't know what the cause is. I've updated my vbios to get rid of the GSOD, so I've already have done that. I don't know what to do.

    Maybe to help another answerer I'll ask this question for them. First, is the problem only occurring while in Rift, or does it occur elsewhere as well?

    I had the same problem a while back. Turns out McAfee was causing the problem. McAfee would max out every processor core to 100% and the computer would pretty much freeze. Then 2-3 seconds later, it would all be fine again with no trace. If, by chance, this is the same problem you are having, then I would suggest just switching to a new anti-virus program considering they have had this problem for a long time now and haven't fixed it yet, to my knowledge.

    hmm I do have Macafee as my antivirus. Maybe I'll try that.

    I thought it could be the hard drive doing it and all I needed was a driver update, but i have a Seagate 640gb hard drive and was unable to find updated drivers for it.

    I'll try uninstalling Macafee and see if that works.

    use MS essential security , it have a very low load on the CPU. If you stay away of hazardous thing you should be ok with it.

    So I uninstalled Macafee from my computer last night and tried playing Rift. I sat in town with the sound on high and just waited for the computer lag to occur. Never happened. I think that may have been the problem. I'll keep checking just to make sure though.

    I've been using ESET NOD32 for the past 6 years or so. Never any problems with it and it seems to have a very negligible system load. BTW, don't be foooled by the "32". They have a 64 bit version too. Lol
