its a bit of a long shot but it might be your computer performing a check mine does it on cs only it laggs at 30 second intervals im not sure what its all about something to do with the ram checking what systems are running or something like that but i dont know how to sort it out but some one must do

hope that was some help but like i said its a long shot

you may want to also close other items on start taskbar and then the game should work.

I had a trojan that was doing this. Posted Image
Just end the process from the task manager (quickly) and the go to C:\WINDOWS\etb\ and delete pokapoka62.exe from the folder.

Good luck! :thumbsup:

I would say watch the task manager to see which program pops up to 100% usage when the computer spikes.

That kind of thing happened to me when I reformatted my computer last summer, there was a program that would spike my cpu usage in a set pattern, I eventually found the file and deleted it with no problems after that.
