    System and compressed memory CPU increase causes video freeze

    I've tried searching online for solutions but haven't found any.

    I noticed that when watching videos online such as youtube or netflix, it would randomly freeze for a split second then go back to normally playing, and sound doesn't seem to be affected. When I have task manager on, it seems to happen when system and compressed memory shoots up to the top of CPU usage. only around 2.0-3.0% usage, then goes back all the way down, and I'm not exactly sure what is causing it.
