My PC when I first bought it worked perfect playing any game I threw at it from high to ultra settings.  Recently though, my computer has been dropping FPS every 2-5 minutes for about 20 seconds and then it goes back to normal.  I've made sure that all of my drivers were up-to-date and they are.  I also uninstalled my display driver & re-installed.  This had nothing to do with the issue but I cleaned out a lot of programs (aka games) that I don't play anymore.  I used the defrag, cleaned temp files and every thing else, virus/malware/etc. scanned and all of that.  The problem still occurs!  Is there any solution?

Try using System Restore to roll back Windows to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.

No suitable restore point, backup, or image available? Kick yourself -- you missed the easy solution, and you're left with digging through Windows' many settings. :(

Bad advice in my opinion, surely he should be getting help on his issue and not just taking the easy way out.

 

I'm new to this forum, but I think he needs a proper security analyst to run him through malware/virus removals. That way we can eradicate those issues.

 

And @OP: Provide your computer specs and the game you are having issues with. Also if it's a laptop, possible overheating?

I edited my first post with my PC specs.  It's happening in almost every game.  The most I was shocked at was while I was playing CS:GO.  I even switched it to the lowest graphics settings possible and it still occurred.
