Why am I lagging so bad?

#1Foxhound3857Posted 8/26/2010 6:33:46 AM
I don't understand, I've turned off my windows updater, turned off anything that might've been slowing me down or downloading/updating in the background, and my connection in WoW is still horrible. It was never this laggy before.

I can browse the web just fine too. I get no lag in L4D or any other online games I play. It's only WoW.

What's going on? Why am I suddenly having a constant bad lag when I play?

Scan for viruses, malware, keyloggers etc. Addons sometimes can cause a lot of lag so check those as well.

I don't have any addons at the moment, I lost them when I did my system recovery, about three days ago.

Still lagging like holy hell, and NOTHING else I'm doing is getting any lag. Browsing, youtube, Steam games, everything else is working just fine on my internet. Why is WoW the only thing lagging so badly?

And no, I don't have Curse or addons.

I would think it has to be your internet. Does anyone else in your home use it?

This is the best thing I've ever done to fix lag.

Which doesn't mean that you don't have virus/keylogger/etc

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

Yeah, I second that. That Leatrix fix is a miracle.
