    I've been having severe lag spikes every 5 or 10 minutes during gaming and have tried everything fron reinstalling the game, turning off all startup programs, running two spyware programs and changing firewalls.

    Nothing works.

    So I'm looking at my firewall and I need to know something:

    I looked up both NTOSKRNL and NDISUIO and both are critical programs, however both are listed as:

    If they don't use the network, then why are they sending in and outbound packets?

    Why don't you install something like Zone Alarm and see whats trying to go out or come in? Then you can block whatever it is. Zone is Alarm is a Free to Download and use.

    Hmm who is Sygate made by? I've never heard of it..

    For that matter if something is blocked then hell it shouldn't be able to go outbound. If its still trying to hit the Network unplug the damn network cable, then it can't go anywhere.

    Have you tried running a Virus Scan, maybe something like "Free AVG"

    Also are you SP2 on XP?

    Yes Windows XP SP2.

    I never thought about it being an actual virus. I shall try that.

    All I know is that a critical process is fluctuating my already slow DSL and it's fucking up my gaming. :(
