    CPU usage dropped to 5% during Gaming after installing Win 11 22H2 update causing huge lag


    Got the 22H2 update for win 11 this morning and my games immediately started to lag.. Using MSI afterburner I found that in games BFV and NFS Heat my cpu usage had dropped from around 50-60% to only 5 % it was the same in all of my games. They all ran perfectly yesterday. Rolled back the update and the games are running perfectly again using 50-60% cpu.Why would this Windows 11 update do this to my new 6 week old gaming PC?Im using i7 10700cpu and a 3070 video card along with 32g of ram

    :)

    Turning game mode on causes mouse lag

    • It was a .net optimization service and windows defender update, which also took up a lot of cpu usage. (I'm guessing that's what caused the mouse to stutter and lag).
    • No, the game runs fine, as long as there aren't any compulsory windows updates that decide to run all of a sudden when I've been gaming an hour in.
    • Logitech G403. Uninstalled the drivers thinking it was a problem.
    • Yeah, especially those that utilise 100% cpu usage.

    Just in case, it's a i5 7300HQ.

    Lag spike causes lag in a game

    So the story is very simple, from time to time I have a huge "lag" in the game and it lasts for like 1 second. This is very annoying. I've done some investigating and it turns out that during the lag, there's a huge spike on a disk usage caused by the same game. Is there any way to avoid the lag? Or is it just a game issue? I send an image showing performance analysis.
