My frame rate drops from 60 fps to like 10 fps for a few seconds (5-10 s) while I am playing League of Legends (video issues are on low/very low). According to CPUID HWMonitor my temperatures seem to be fine but I do encounter CPU Usage spikes while my fps drops. I cleaned my case/fans/motherboard but the problem still occured. I have been having  this problem for like 1 week. I would kindly appreciate any help...:D


My specs are 



Operating System

Windows XP 32-bit SP2


AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 

2.4 GHZ

90 nm Technology


2 GB Dual-Channel @ 403 MHZ

Graphic Card

NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT





LE : I think that these CPU spikes appeared after I had installed Windows Malicious Removal Tool. And even though i removed it, the issue still persists
