So i love to play minecraft, and when i play it i get a smooth, constant framerate at about 124FPS.
But recently i've been getting these framerate drops every 30 seconds.
I studied the patterns that occured in task manager whenever the fps dropped, and found this:
Usually when task manager is open it creates a process (taskmgr.exe)
BUT, i have not only taskmgr.exe But i also have "Task Manager.exe"
I always figured the Task Manager.exe was the real one, but when i close out of it; it comes right back.
Now the bad part starts here.
There is always a process on called "Task Manager.exe" it uses 00 CPU
On 30 second intervals, a second "Task Manager.exe" appears, it uses 99 CPU, but it only stays open for two seconds.
When i use the search function and look for Task Manager.exe no results appear.
I am running Windows XP SP2 so unlike on vista and 7; i cant right-click on a process and simply select "open file location"
please does someone have a possible fix for this, it suuuuuuuucks, not only do i have horrible lag spikes while gaming, but i even get blue screens from it.
