basically everything worked perfectly before i reinstalled. the reason i pretty much reinstalled. was because of some annoying explore virus, which keept showing links on every word + adding advertises in top / sides of the homepage.

ever since i did reinstall(s), i've had this issue. which leads me to think i may have missed something to install. it sounds more/less unlikely, as i've both updated the drivers / used the cds there was given when pc was bought.

but i still believe theres something im missing.

i did some testing on osu, my cpu dropped by 20% (down to 3-4%), when changing to directx usage, instead of opengl. however, the lag still exists.. Not sure how it would react on runescape, but yeah.

this image is when i changed to direct x, you already have the 1 for opengl further up in this topic/thread
