I have a computer that up to a few months ago played wow perfectly and now its a laggy mess i cant even make a new toon on an almost empty server with out taking 2 steps and waiting 10 secs for it to catch up.

Is there anything i can do or any work arounds i can use like the one that removed all the dalaran and login wait time to nothing, that will temporarily speed up my computer till my new one gets here in a few days?

I thought it might have been a problem on blizzards side and they did actually fix some of it but the rest has to be my side got awesome internet so its not that and i really have the wow itch and i need it scratched so any helpful hints would be appreciated. Doesnt even have to be a long time fix like i said my new 1 should be here by Thursday but i want it now lol

Sometimes it's not software... When's the last time you dusted out your PC? Also, search Defrag in the start menu and do that.
Currently Playing: Zelda, Breath of the Wild (Master Mode)
Thoughts so Far: Amazing game, playing Master Mode now.

Lag usually isn't an indicator of hardware or software issues - but network issues. If by lag you mean true lag and not stutter and frame rate issues, then I would check your latency and network settings both in WoW and on your computer. There are a few network settings in WoW that may cause this issue. Try messing around with them if you haven't already.

Also something to try: there's an off-chance it COULD be hardware related, so as WoW is running, alt-tab-delete out and open task manager and check your cpu, gpu, ram and hard drive usage to make sure nothing is out of wack. If you find that something is unusually high, then you might've found the cause. Even a 90+% hard drive usage will cause games to stutter, I've had this issue before.

If it's neither of the above, then I would do what a poster above said and run a virus scan and/or malware bytes.
