    CPU spikes and performance lag


    Hi everyone. During the past few days I have a problem regarding my computer performance.

    Problem:
    -My computer is getting random performance lags that last 3-5 seconds.
    -The cpu usage will jump when it happens; anywhere from 50-100%.
    -Large Ethernet spikes as well.

    -It's completely random and is very hard to catch but it happens when I'm:
    a. browsing the internet ; engaging in miniscule internet activities.
    b. opening an application on my computer.

    c. watching a video, both on and outside the internet.
    d. playing a software intensive game.

    symptoms:
    -Computer slows but doesn't freeze
    -the really bad spikes are up to 100% cpu usage; usually though they are 50-80%.
    -Video sound gets distorted and choppy; like if you have an injured CD that still plays right through the scratches but gets all choppy sounding.
    -often times the mouse pointer will, all of the sudden, be trailing during the strange slow motion performance lag.

    I had the same problem for like a week and it all of a sudden got fixed without me doing anything. However after 3-4 days the problem returned.

    Do you have any ideas for a solution. I scanned my computer with Avast Security and it found no viruses on my computer.

    My specs:
    - Windows 10 build 14393
    - Nvidia GeForce GTX 960
    - Driver version 375.50
    - Intel Core i5-6600 CPU @ 3.50 GHz

    I just did all 3 of the things you suggested and nothing has changed. Do you have any other ideas.

    Edit: Apparently I didn't do all the things, you suggested me, correctly. I just did them again, like they are supposed to be done, and everything seems to be working appropriately. There are no lag spikes and I think the problem is fixed. Thank you very much for helping me.
