  1. Horrible game performance since Windows Update two weeks ago


    Ever since Windows 10 installed updates when I shut down my PC two weeks ago, games have had very poor performance. I mean they are unplayable. All games run like garbage. Very slow, lots of major lag, and many things do not even load in the games since the Windows Update two weeks ago. This started happening literally the next time I started up my PC after installing those updates. My games ran perfectly fine before Windows installed those updates. I use this PC and play games on this PC every day so I know what is normal and what is not. This horrible gaming performance is far from normal. Final Fantasy XIV went from running with really great performance to unplayable overnight when Microsoft installed updates and this game as well as other games really lag and have horrible performance since the update and it has yet to clear up on any game. I cannot even keep up with other players in dungeons because of how bad the game runs now. I do not see AoE telegraphs and I constantly die before my screen even shows it because of how bad the performance is since that Microsoft update. It went from running really well at 10 PM one night to unplayable after starting up my PC at 8 AM the next morning with literally the only change made to my PC was Windows installing updates at shutdown. I have no clue what Microsoft installed with their update two weeks ago but it definitely ruins gaming performance. I posted the issue on Microsoft's forums, HP forums, Nvidia forums, Reddit, as well as Final Fantasy XIV forums and the forums of a couple other now unplayable games that used to run great. I have not gotten a single response at any of these places. It is as if the update only affected my PC or there is an obvious incredibly easy fix that is so obvious that nobody wants to respond to the problem. As I said, this was not an issue at all the night before the Windows update, but was a problem immediately following, and it has been a problem ever since. Nvidia drivers had an update a couple days ago but no change in the horrible performance. Here are my PC specs: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/S...mT8EYsddkcUrVw Does anybody know how to fix this or what the problem could be?
