Just a few thoughts...Do you have any excessive Add-Ons/Toolbars installed, or no longer in use? Also Keeping a large amount of Emails in your Inbox can cause increased CPU usage. Have you ran a Windows Disk Clean lately?

Nah no addons or toolbars. and i dont have email setup on this machine. and disk cleanup is run every week. Its been fine since forever on this new machine, but randomly couple of weeks ago it just started. even just sitting here doing nothing it just lags up.
Hmmmmmm..I see. Well you certainly seem to have ample resources, so no High Latency should be the culprit. Quite possibly one of my Colleagues could add to the discussion, and offer some suggestions. Did you ask for your assistance to be escalated, with the chance of a Higher Tier Tech?
May I ask what Version/Build of McAfee Protection are you running?
Yeah the help guy just said reset it, changing the one setting usually fixes it. He wasnt really of any help, just following his step by step guide i guess.
McAfee securitycenter: 14.0 build: 14.0.207
mcafee firewall is 15.0 build:15.0.154
Thank You for the information. You indeed have the most recent Version. Actually I still am on 13.6.1592. Some of my Colleagues/Friends are running the 14.0.207 Version also, I will ask if they have experienced such as well.
I am one one 14.0.207 and do not see any lag spikes . You said they happen even typing here as I am doing now . If you watch the Task manager can you see which program is doing this?
I am watching the cpu graph showing last 60 secs and in 5 minutes nothing above 5%
maybe if you find the program doing it you can in firewall settings for internet connections for programs disable netguard for that program.
Other thought is call support and ask for an escalation
Thank you for your input PK
McSvHost.exe thats the program that spikes upto 40% it says which causes the lag.
