Do you get a short glimpse of the desktop when this happens? Or does the game freeze in place....
Which version of Windows is this?
Just some considerations....
Try a clean start and reducing your settings to low and see if either changes anything.
What is going on in the background? Try using a program that cuts off unneeded services.
Do a malwarebytes scan and a virus scan.
Have you run a disk check and a defrag (try auslogics) lately?
How old is this drive? Any sounds? Squealing? Drives are primary suspects.
Drivers up to date? Check all of them, especially the sound one if you hear looping sounds.
"If you recently upgraded from one Windows operating system to another, it's possible that the current network adapter driver was designed for the previous Windows operating system. If you've had recent power outages, viruses, or other computer problems, it's possible that the driver has become corrupted. Downloading and installing the latest network adapter driver can resolve these types of problems."
Test your memory with Memtestx86
Check in eventviewer under system for any error info
Uninstall/reinstall any software for monitoring fans, CPU Temps, peripherals and make sure LOTRO is added to your virus real time scanning exceptions.
Make sure everything in the computer is seated properly and that your PSU is big enough for anything you recently installed.
Work through the connection sticky. Even if that does have nothing to do with this, it could save problems later.
